Alex Torres Continued~"Wetties vs."Wetbacks," "To(sic) Many Bloggers," Ted Cruz Flunks Spanish

Alex Torres, Nena Barton, in front of
VA Outpatient Clinic in Harlingen in 2012
We first met Alex Torres personally at the VA Outpatient Clinic in Harlingen in 2012.  He was then offering counseling to veterans having difficulty returning to civilian life. Torres himself is a Navy veteran.  

At the time, Torres, was campaigning for the Texas House of Representatives, District 38, a race he eventually lost to Eddie Lucio III, 71% to 25% with Libertarian candidate Nancy Mishou garnering 4%.

Weeks earlier, Torres had been accosted at a Brownsville Cheezmeh forum by Ron Lozano, described as an "Eddie Lucio III thug." Here are Torres' words recorded in this blog in 2012: 

"This guy got into my face about capital punishment and some other things. He invaded my personal space. I mean I don't allow people to get jaw to jaw with me. So I asked Erasmo and anyone to get this guy off of me. I first asked a reporter from Matamoros, then I saw Tad Hasse, who I recognized. He was nice enough to help me get out of that situation.

Yes, Ron Lozano. He's what I call a conspiracy theorist. He always wears a ball cap and sort of a military coat. He's done something similar at City Commission meetings in Harlingen. He kept trying to start something. Then, Robert Uresti joined us. He told the guy to get out of here or he'd call the police. Some people wanted me to file a police report, but there's no need."


We've not visited with Torres much lately, at least until yesterday's phone conversation.  Here are a couple tidbits we left off our report:

Torres stated that he mainly promotes Hispanic candidates.(Trump is obviously the exception.) We asked him his view of the two recent Hispanic Republican presidential candidates.  

Senator Ted Cruz
Torres stated that he had no interest in Marco Rubio, but was somewhat interested in Texas Senator Ted Cruz, that is, until he met him at a campaign event and learned he does not speak Spanish.

"Can you imagine an Hispanic candidate who does not speak Spanish?" Torres asked.

In the comment section of yesterday's article, Alex Torres engaged in some give-and-take with other commenters, further revealing his viewpoints, attitudes and ideas.

Torres made comments that seemed on the surface to be racist:

Alex TorresJuly 12, 2016 at 6:29 PM
"Calling me a liar...your papers are lying, can not wait for TRUMP to win to throw you over the wall, you wetty"


"Spoken like true anti Catholics....go to your holes in Mexico"
"Again I remind you... anytime any place, put your fist where mouth is ...I will take on you anonymous cowards...big words hiding behind your keyboard..come show your faces, you bunch of wetbees"

While some commenters assumed Torres references to "wetties" and "wetbees" was a variation of the racial slur "wetbacks," Alex says that is not the case.  Here is his spin on the matter:

Alex TorresJuly 13, 2016 at 2:53 PM

"I don't use wetbacks banter...wetty means wet behind the ears (I am calling you rookies)...but go ahead, this coming from a Anglo Cameron County party..I embrace my culture and I am proud of my heritage...'QUE VIVA CRISTO REY'"


The Brownsville Observer refers its readers to a modern translation of St. Matthew, Chapter 24, Verse 15: "Let the reader use discernment."

In another blog comment by Alex Torres, he seems to feel that Brownsville has too many bloggers:

"this is a blog, one of many in Brownsville...one of to many in Brownsville. So smile and know that I tried but at the end of the day I can not be part of your conversations on this blog...Jim will be happy with your extra comments, it is blogs like his that keeps some of you informed, thank you Jim for serving the greater good. So I bid you farewell and ask for the Blessings of GOD upon all of you.



Did Alex just say that there are "to(sic) many blogs in Brownsville?"  Which blog or blogs would he recommend cease operation?  Are there too many blogs for the population or simply too many for his liking?  Is he suggesting a Cameron County Blog Review Board?

    2. Too many blogs? What he means is "too many people to possibly try to control or con into believing lies."

      Delete
  2. Hmm....haven't seen him support Cortez, Gonzalez, Delgadillo, Cavazos, or DeCoss (who, like Cascos, was born in Mexico.) Come to think of it....he calls it an Anglo party even though it has a Hispanic chairman and 5 of 6 local candidates are Hispanic.

    Who's the newb around here? The casual observer sees through his lies far easier than any radiologist would be able to view the tumor of his stupidity in that fat void of a head with even the most sophisticated MRI or CT scan.

    Sit down in that extra wide recliner and wait for you unemployment checks, son! That's something you have experience in.

    1. You know you are using His name in vain, right? Tenants of Catholicism, Alex. Don't you know?

    2. Alex, you're the fool who wanted to become the story. You are not entitled to anything. You aren't entitled to people's names so you could figure out exactly who it is who has seen through you like a floodlight through a single pane of glass. Hell, you never take accountability. Ever.

  5. What is this idiot trying to say? He said something stupid (wetties) then tries to back pedal in the most clumsy, amateurish way possible. Some of us are proud to be Mexican-Americans, Alex. He is treating this like the Valley Central comment sections where everybody tried to out-racist each other. People like Alex Torres make me ashamed to be a registered Republican. It seems like he is trying to fit in with the Frank Morris Country Club Republicans who hate all Mexicans who think themselves equal to them, then to fit in with La Raza he claims to be one of us. This guy is such a poseur.

    1. He didn't lie, well not a lot anyway. Think of them more like a special kind of Morris reality where somehow he wins in the end. After that, he rides his unicorn off into the sunset and is magicly turned WHITE.

  7. The moment Morgan refused to hold meetings at the country club every self hating Hispanic was ready to scram. Eddie Padron and Alex went bye-bye when their only way to get a meal at a joint they perceive themselves on the outside looking in at was gone. Welcome to Obvious Shit Not To Do 101.

  10. Alex Torres will now never realize whatever muddled dream he may have harbored. This is what listening to Frank Morris instead of others has gotten you. Did Frank tell you that you would be County Chair? You know that when he finds out about this debacle YOU have created with your racism in print for all time, your worth to him will become zero. I am betting that by now he knows. But you know what? It doesn't matter. Your hopeless Hail Mary pass failed. It was never a good plan in the first place. The reason it failed is that Frank has no power. None. He will never have any power again. Gone. Zappo. Ziltch. Getting it you whiny bitch?

  13. Alex is such a pussy. When that redneck Tyma was punching minorities and Morgan had to kick her out of the caucus and the party banned her from the building he hid like a bitch too afraid to put a stop to it. He's useless.
