'The Hill' Endorses Idea of Minority Voters as Democratic Property, Says GOP Attempting to 'Steal' Hispanics
There's a belief amongst Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) that Democrats own minority voters. It's why the First Lady thought referring to Hispanic voters as delicious food would work out for her and her husband. SPOILER: It did not. People have been telling the GOP it needs to appeal to a broader, more diverse coalition for years. Now that the GOP is getting good at doing so, the left and the media (again, repetition) think there's something nefarious about it. The Hill seized on that today, accusing the GOP of stealing Latinos from Democrats.

Critics were quick to POUNCE. While Democrats have enjoyed owning people in the past, no one "owns" voters these days.
Steal - to take another person's **property** without permission or legal right and without intending to return it. https://t.co/ewnNQ3RCOR

We don’t think voters like to be “stolen” from one side by the only other side back and forth. We think voters want to have their votes earned.
Let’s try that instead. #politics#democracyhttps://t.co/Qd3aB8GWuI

Why are they always so gross?
Stealing? Do Dems own Hispanic voters or something?
How pathetic. https://t.co/jwTQ6AQh7w

Imagine if Tucker Carlson accused the Democrats of stealing White people? Brian Stelter would have a coronary. As would, if we're being honest, The Hill.
Let's play a game -- imagine the reaction from CNN and the like if Fox News tweeted this about white voters

The article itself was about the GOP outreach and wasn't all that terrible. Lots of news outlets have been writing about GOP outreach, and how Democrats are hemorrhaging all voting groups that aren't uppity white liberals. Axios, for instance, went with a less partisan "The great realignment."

It's really a case of lazy, partisan headline writing and social media'ing. The headline on the actual article was changed before noon while the tweet remains. If I were to guess, the person who writes headlines and/or tweets for The Hill is a fresh-out-of-journalism-school zoomer who thinks "Latinx" is a thing and gets their news n' stuff from social media influencers like Rep. AOC. Our legacy media outlets might want to be slightly choosier about who they hire.
