(PatrioticPost.com)- The Congressional Hispanic Caucus has urged the FCC to approve the sale of 18 Spanish-language radio stations to a left-wing media group. The group, Latino Media Network, is led by two Democrat party activists with ties to former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Hispanics have dubbed the group “Radio Soros” and expressed concern that the group will silence beloved conservative personalities on talk radio. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has approved the purchase of 18 Spanish-language radio stations by the Latino Media Network, an Obama- and Clinton-linked company. A letter from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) to the FCC claims the purchase would protect “myriad diverse voices” on the radio stations.
The CHC chair claimed in a press release that handing over a dozen radio stations’ control to leftists would amplify the “silenced” voices — a statement contrary to the letter’s stated intent. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) has urged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to conduct a “diligent review” of the sale of 18 radio stations to Latino Media Network (LMN). The CHC has not allowed Hispanic Republicans to be members for over two decades.
The transaction outraged Hispanic radio listeners nationally, especially in Florida, home to the bulk of Hispanic socialist and communist immigrants in the US. Hispanic Americans protested the sale of two Miami stations, Radio Mambi and the former Cubansima, WQBA since they transmitted anti-communist propaganda to Florida and Cuba.
At a news conference earlier this month that voiced their opposition to the acquisition, the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance joined forces with the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association and other concerned Hispanic Americans.

“Latino Media Network is a freshly founded economic enterprise managed and controlled by social activists,” said Mothers Against Repression in Cuba director Silvia Iriondo at the Bay of Pigs Museum in Miami. In this era of cancel culture, when conservative viewpoints and values are censored, we are worried by the imposition of an ideological agenda antithetical to our community’s spiritual and moral principles.
Rafael Montalvo, president of the Bay of Pigs-era Brigade 2506, stated, “we are insulted by this action of selling our media to a leftist organization.”
