Posts Tagged ‘Dee Dee Garcia Biase’


This morning, we received this private Facebook message from Tequila Party founder, Dee Dee García Blase (who btw the has blocked us from all her Facebook pages and isn’t even a Facebook friend of us:). A FACEBOOK TIP TO DEE DEE: we received your comments from anonymous sources. Just being good reporters, we guess.

Guess Dee Dee doesn’t like us that much:

Please contact our lawyer and civil rights attorney Shirl Mora James of Nebraska for the Tequila Party if you have any issues. You have slandered me from the beginning. What I say on my own facebook page is my business. You use your venues to cry, and I won’t give you any attention that you seek. What I write on my facebook is my business, and indeed you take issue with the name because you questioned me on the name from the get go and asked me why not the “Rum Party”. As I have told you before, start an Lemonada Party, DO SOMETHING instead of complaining about my efforts. Learn from Puerto Rican Luis Gutierrez who knows and respects Mexican-Americans. You have a lot of growing up to do and I wish you the best. This will be my last response to you.

 Love you too, Dee Dee.

So, we must be doing right about our distaste for the silly name of the Tequila Party, since it appears that Dee-Dee García Blasé —the founder of the 2,000-member Tequila Party and the self-proclaimed Voice of All Latinos— is starting to share her thoughts about this blog and our positions.

In a message we received today, Dee-Dee’s true colors show in her criticism of this blog and LatinoRebels.com. Here is what she wrote:

For the record, the owner of the Latino Rebels who is against the name of the Tequila Party is Puerto Rican (Julio) , and we all know PR’s get automatic citizenship. I don’t think that Latino Rebels really feel what people of Mexican descent are going through right now and we have to be creative and controversial in a good way to get people to think about the importance of the latino vote to promote for pro immigration politicians. It’s too bad Latino Rebels wasn’t more like Rep. Luis Gutierrez for Illinois. Julio (Latino Rebels) asked me why we didn’t name the movement “rum party”, and I think it has something to do with PR’s and Cubanos liking ‘rum’ more so than the ‘tequila’.

Quiz time, when we say Tequila Party, what do you think of first?

A. This picture from college

B. This dance from one of the greatest movies ever

C. This bar scene

D. A well-intentioned grass-roots political movement out of Arizona that actually has some great points to make about immigration reform but has a name that makes a mockery of the movement, so much so that the movement won’t even gain any traction at all

If you think that Dee Dee García-Blasé and other Latino leaders in the United States who support the Tequila Party are just making a mockery of real Latino issues, then take a moment and go here. Let them know that political perception is all reality.

GO HERE AND SIGN: CHANGE THE NAME, NOT THE CAUSE. NO AL TEQUILA, SÍ A LA UNIDAD.
