Actress out of San Francisco Production After Endorsing Tea Party Candidate

CBS San Francisco, January 18, 2014

An actress is facing a backlash in San Francisco’s Latino community, after she voiced support for a conservative candidate for California governor.

Maria Conchita Alonso starred in a campaign ad for Assemblyman Tim Donnelly of San Bernardino County, a Tea Party favorite who is seeking the Republican nomination.

Donnelly has voiced strong views against illegal immigration and was once involved with the Minutemen Project, a group that patrolled the border with Mexico to catch immigrants coming across.


Alonso is an actress of Cuban and Venezuelan descent. She is perhaps best known for her role in the movie “Moscow on the Hudson” with co-star Robin Williams.

The actress was to perform next month at the Brava Theater Center in San Francisco’s Mission District in a Spanish-language version of “The Vagina Monologues,” scheduled for a run from February 14th through 17th. The show is being produced by none other than Eliana Lopez, wife of San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi.

“We really cannot have her in the show, unfortunately,” Lopez told KPIX 5. She said Alonso abruptly resigned from the cast on Friday, given the backlash on the immigration issue.

“Of course she has the right to say whatever she wants. But we’re in the middle of the Mission. Doing what she is doing is against what we believe,” Lopez said.

Alonso received an earful from listeners of Spanish-language radio station KIQI 1010 AM in San Francisco on Friday, after she said in an interview that she supported many of Donnelly’s views on illegal immigration. Several listeners took her to task after she used the term “illegal” to describe undocumented immigrants.

    Defending your country, especially if it is your adopted country, is a serious crime.

    • The San Francisco gaytheists and fagnostics are insane… they think they will have fun playing “spread the other cheek” in gay marriage with their new Islamic masters.

    She just got caressed by diversity.

  • Truthseeker

    So what have we learned here? That Hispanics in the United States consider other Hispanics traitors if they oppose letting more Hispanics into the country illegally. Good to know where their loyalties lie.

    • Svigor

      Wrong. We learned that the white-conquistador leftist “hispanic” elite consider them traitors: theater producers, hispanics the white-conquistador leftist “hispanics” running KIQI allow on the air, etc.

      Polls show that real hispanics in America aren’t nearly so doctrinaire leftist on the issue, probably because they know the criminal infiltrators from Mexico are going to come looking to take their jobs, first.

        Yeah I know this is anecdotal if apocryphal, but…

        I fess up. I like me some GOOD Mexican food. The real stuff, you know? Not just that Taco Bell basura, but real stuff, like mole, or tacos al pastor (grilled pork and pineapple chunks served on soft tortillas with a sprinkling of fresh onions and cilantro and a fresh squeezed lime)…yum yum…

        And there is this Mexican restaurant nearby that up until about a year or so ago was the best. Never let me down – good service, good food, great atmosphere. Heck, even great Mexicans. Hard working folk with standards.

        But something happened roughly a year ago. Not sure exactly what, but I have some suspicions. I generally order take out from the place and like I said, never had a problem in years. Then one day…it all changed.

        I placed a simple order, went to pick it up, and first some chubby clueless looking senorita I’d never seen helped me. Had trouble figuring out proper change. Seemed confused. So I, fluent in Spanish, tried to help her out. Eventually got my food, took it home, found a couple of key items missing. Oh well, nobody’s perfect.

        Next time I just went in and ordered from the counter. Again the confusion and disorder and incompetence. Again something significant wrong. Now I’m a loyal customer, tried twice more, they got it right once, screwed it up the next time.

        So I give up on ’em. Too bad. Then months later on New Year’s day I’m in search of something different and non fast foody, find myself driving past my old favorite Mexican eatery, mouth watering, tummy grumbling…hey, why not? Maybe new ownership, eh?

        Worse yet.

        A few Mexicans of the more enterprising and Caucasian persuasion in our little old Southern community was fine. Spiced things up just a bit, contributed to society and fit in just fine.

        At what point, however, did a critical mass of Mexican Indians arrive, however, to RUIN IT FOR THEM AND FOR US?

        Look Paco…You came here because here is here and there is there. You left there because there is there, NOT here. When enough of you come here, HERE WILL BE THERE. GET IT?

        Apparently some like Ms. Alonso do. Good for her.

    Wrong. She’s best known for her roles in The Running Man and Predator II.


    Does this mean that the entertainment industry has its own black list?

  • Luca

    Being born in Cuba and raised in Venezuela would make her acutely aware of the hypocrisy of diversity and the failure of socialist states.

    I particularly admire her for calling Sean Penn a “communist a&&hole.”

  • Spartacus

    California is lost already, unless the northern part seceedes into an explicitly White state .

    • JustJeff

      That would be good. Having been to San Francisco I have to say it would be nice if we could keep it.

      • Max Krakah

        Keep the city, not the people

        • JustJeff

          Well duh

          • Max Krakah

            actually, perhaps it is wrong to be attached to these things. Cities can always be rebuilt. Look at Dresden in Germany. I say, if we have to , we should level any and every city in America that we have to in order to save or race.

          • Even San Francisco had to be rebuilt after the 1906 earthquake and fire. A real-estate agent always says “location, location, location”, and San Francisco has a very good location. The scenery is nice; it’s a good place for a city. The Bay Area is also a completely amazing natural, sheltered deep-water port.

        • Neutron bombs don’t destroy infrastructure…

          • Those have all been dismantled. Neutron bombs were originally intended to kill tank crews; the sleet of high-energy neutrons would kill them out farther away than the blast effects of ordinary nukes. Modern tanks are much less vulnerable than the old M-48/M-60/AMX-30/Centurion/Chieftain/Leopard-I/T-55/62/64/72 generation. The focus had to shift to precision-guided weapons.

            They pack more radiation and less wallop.

      • Last month I walked all over the city after 1 a.m. from… in the smell of urine soaked sidewalks and people sleeping their in their own soaked clothes I stepped across… Away from down near Moscone and up through Union Square, haunting shadows, I saw only wretchedness enshrined. Across the bay in Oakland is best armed if you have to.

  • WR_the_realist

    I’m experiencing extreme cognitive dissonance here. Maria Alonso supports a conservative Tea Party candidate who opposes illegal immigration, but wanted to perform in the perverse Vagina Monologues? I hope the day comes when she will be grateful that the negative reaction to her sensible political views prevented her from blotting her career with a part in that play.

  • NoMosqueHere

    If this was YT dealing with race traitors or commie rats it would McCarthyism. But for the spanish it’s advancing the “mission.”

  • MekongDelta69

    “‘We don’t act like that. First of all, that is not a typical Latina,’ said Jim Salinas, a long time Mission resident and former president of the San Francisco Latino Democratic Club.”

    Who’s this ‘we’ Tonto? Are you the self-anointed spokesman for all ‘non-typical’ brown people who have fled the NoBama plantation?

    And of course he’s a leftist. A part of the, “We are forever-oppressed” and “All white people are racist” crowd.


    • No, Maria Alonso is not a “typical Latina”. First of all, she’s not overweight. She also doesn’t have five kids from eight different men. In fact, she doesn’t have any kids at all, and since she’s now 56, she isn’t ever going to. She’s been successful in her career, which never involved welfare or pretending to “work” at a government office. She opposed President Oogabooga’s campaign.

      In other words, she worked for what she has and apparently thinks everyone else should work for theirs as well. Perhaps Alonso’s Marxist detractors have chosen to forget the original, “unimproved” American Dream, which did not include slurping up taxpayer-funded gibsmedats like a hog at a trough, but to realize one’s own full potential in life.

  • Bossman

    This guy doesn’t look like Governor material. In the commercial Maria is not even taking him seriously.

    • Jim Barlow

      I think it’s just her poor acting…

  • Jim Barlow

    It’s a lose, lose.

    Conservatives will continue to try, and fail, to win over the societal sludge.

    Who get’s screwed in the process? The rest of the country.

    • Lawful secession of a dozen or more states from the federal government would be my answer… even if they take the military infrastructure… that can built or purchased from the Russians…

  • John K

    Leftists are all for free speech as long as they’re the only ones who can practice it. If you speak out against them, they’ll try to destroy you. In fact, they often get away with making false statements that should get them imprisoned for treason, but the lemmings cower to them and call it “freedom of expression”.

    • Jesse James

      “Leftists are all for free speech as long as they’re the only ones who can practice it”

      Classic line.

  • KittyAmerica

    She was going to be in that contemptible anti male show. I can not be concerned for anyone who participates in such vile activities .

    • Max Krakah

      My sentiments exactly

      • Jesse James

        I disagree, we should look for any cracks in the enemies ranks and when we find one we should insert a pry bar and twist.

        • Max Krakah

          why. The second you come to her defense they will just justify her banishment as correct. “See, she is a traitor for the Gringo”. The white race is the only race ever considers something other than race.

          • Jesse James

            Divide and Conquer is a sound tactic. When it comes to purposes of propaganda and manipulation of mass opinion anything that weakens the illusion of solidarity in the enemies ranks is good as it destroys the illusion that the progressive side is both morally correct and the path to the inevitable future. Look at the completely unworkable coalition of the left: Ultra-rich and poverty stricken underclass, Mexicans and Blacks, Homosexuals and Muslims, College professors and white Northern blue collar workers, Federal employee union drones and creative young people, stock brokers and Occupiers, Jews and anti-Jewish pro Arab intellectuals. Any sound approach to advancing our ideas and creating some mass movement will also include a campaign of sowing dissension in the enemies ranks.

            It is meaningless if you “like” or “don’t like” this particular woman and all aspects of her beliefs and activity. What matters is she took a public stance contra to the current mainstream progressive narrative. Her opinions create a small bit of cognitive dissonance which can and should be exploited. Confusion to the enemy!

          • Romulus

            Excellent tactic. Using marxists tactics against the creators can and does word. It is essentially behavior modification.

  • JustJeff

    The Red State Scare claims another victim.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Didn’t the LEFT scream and yell in the 50s about a similar situation? — something about “Black Lists” and a certain vilified senator from Wisconsin that we’re still hearing about to this day?

    “She made headlines a few years ago when she told off actor Sean Penn in an airport in California for his support of the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. She called Penn a communist, and he called her a pig.”

    The actress was to perform… in a Spanish-language version of ‘The Vagina Monologues,’

    The Vagina Monologues? Geez, I think they did her a favor…

  • Max Krakah

    Who cares, “the vagina monologues” is pure feminist garbage. She was in THAT! And let’s get something straight, the “tea Party” is trying to work WITHIN the system, they are a waste of OUR time.

    • I suspect that it is precisely because the Tea Party is trying to work within the system that they are more likely to make headway in the near-term. Limited government as espoused by the Tea Party would get us here on AmRen a lot of the things we want. If the federal government was removed from its current role as Santa Claus, this would primarily benefit whites.

      • 1. Operate with eyes wide open re the TPM.

        2. But also realize there’s a reason why the Chamber Pot of Commerce, whose A-1 priority is amnesty and open borders, is opening up the daddy warbucks war chest big big big time to try to kill the TPM.

  • SoCal Patriot


    I should have been more precise by writing “who were part of”,not “apart of”.I apologize for the confusing grammatical error. 🙁

    Surprise, surprise, a wealthy Latina tells the truth about illegal immigration, where whites like me who have blood ties to this land that extend back centuries would be vilified as “rayciss.”

  • freddy_hills

    The left is very tolerant of others’ opinions.

    muahahaha I can’t say that with a straight face. hahaha

  • freddy_hills

    I lived in the Bay area years ago. And my experience was that the average Mexican was more racist than the average skinhead. Granted, I didn’t know many of the latter but I knew plenty of the former. They were virulently and openly racist. And they didn’t know I spoke Spanish.

  • Spartacus

    Whites can come up with a solution to any problem, provided they actually try to solve it.

    • Trying to solve a problem first requires the successful identification of the real problem. Politics quickly becomes involved in that process.

  • The Final Solution

    I’ve noticed that a lot of Arnold’s women in his movies are non-white. The Running Man, Total Recall, Eraser, Commando….

    • I don’t know who was doing the casting for those films, and that’s the major question. As an example though, I offer “The Running Man”, which we have here at home on DVD and was produced by George Linder and Tim Zinnemann. Make of those names what you like.

    • Romulus

      Jewlywood controls casting. It’s nothing new. The foreign miscegenation propaganda was just starting to gain traction when Aaanold was in his heyday. The media will target boys as well. Males are far more territorial than women, which is why it’s easier to get our women to screw anything with a heartbeat.

  • From what I was able to ascertain in federal prison, Cubans and Puerto Ricans can’t stand each other.

  • Svigor

    I’m going by poll results.

    Sean Penn’s probably a racist. His son got caught up in an “n-word” flap not too long ago. That sort of thing is learned in the home, especially so in his case, given his milieu outside the home.

    You were in the wrong neighborhood, the downtown tourist area. Go west to the Sunset and Richmond or to Sea Cliff. You won’t find any homeless there. It is unfortunate that the main tourist hotels are mostly downtown where the homeless live. The worst is the 6th street slum. All the airport shuttle buses and limos go through 6st. Also the GPS directions send everyone through 6t st. The tourists and homeless are in the same neighborhood, but the tourists never stop coming.
    PS, I’m the French, English Irish TruthTeller from California, not the Turkish Christian one.

  • Truth Teller

    I think the Tea Party is a controlled opposition group created by liberals to pretend there is an opposition. It’s a common tactic of dictators. Create a mild opposition group. The dissidents flock to this harmless, ineffective organization. The dissidents think they are doing something and it keeps them busy.
    I’m the French, English Irish Truth Teller from California, not the Turkish Zionist.

    • That’s too much for me to believe. The libs created a movement that the libs hate with every fiber of their existence?

      Here’s the real answer: The TPM is more or less conservatives with something of a hard baked right-libertarian edge who actually take their ideology seriously. It’s not a fake front for anyone else, and no cigar muncher swooped down from the top floor of a skyscraper to co-opt it or ruin it. That which we find problematic about the TPM is exactly the same as that which we find problematic with lamestream to right-libertarian conservatism, for the same reason.

      But like I said elsewhere in this thread, the left and the Chamber Pot of Commerce trying to back it into a corner is actually backing it into a briar patch and a huge opportunity that I hope it’s astute enough to take. And that opportunity is a genuine honest to goodness populism.

    “Alonso is an actress of Cuban and Venezuelan descent.”

    Having escaped socialist paradises brought about or installed for their respective multiracial, Hispanic hordes against the Hispanic White elite probably makes or keeps one fairly anti-left wing.
