Obama’s comments also received a harsh response from the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC).  The organization represents 42,000-plus US churches and many additional churches spread throughout Spanish-speaking countries. 

“I’ll tell you what I’m not thankful for this Thanksgiving: the ever-escalating close-mindedness of the Democrat Party. President Obama, whom I admire, is apparently angry because Hispanic Americans have minds of their own. As I have said at every opportunity, we are not – and will not be – beholden to the elephant or the donkey,” Rodriguez said in a statement. 

“A much more useful exercise for President Obama would have been to lead the Democrat Party to some humble self-reflection rather than further down the fundamentalist path of the leftist politics of exclusion. Bigotry is still bigotry even if it comes from President Obama,” he continued. 

“The question is whether the party of Biden is any different, or whether demands for conformity are being cleverly disguised under the guise of national unity,” Rodriguez concluded.
