Jedi Did anyone on the left say "why should we care what Hispanic-Americans think"?

So this is actually a good question. But let's be more specific.

Did anyone on the left say "What do Hispanic-Americans think about immigration policy?"

Definitely. For example:

But how about this:

Did anyone on the left say "What do Hispanic-Americans think about a possible Secretary of Defense?"

No....

Because the Defense Secretary defends the entire nation, not this or that ethnic group. It is simply inappropriate to give any ethnic group undo influence on this appointment.
