I often find that the people who are most offended by racist things aren’t people that belong to the race that is being targeted, but white people who white knight around and claim to be offended on the part of an “oppressed” minority. For example, almost no one outside the United States has any issue calling the Coronavirus “Wuhan Virus”. The only people outside the U.S. who say that calling it that is “racist” is the Chinese government that royally screwed everything up and is trying to absolve themselves from any blame or responsibility. But aside from that, I’ve only seen Leftist white people get offended by that name, not the people of Wuhan or the citizens of China.
Similarly, Leftist white people (though not all) tend to prefer “politically correct” language, such as referring to Hispanics as “Latinx”, a term that, as both a Hispanic and as one who does not give a darn about political correctness because I see it for the communist censorship tactic that it is, I thoroughly loathe. And according to a recent Politico poll, I am far from the only Hispanic that is not fond of that ridiculous (and frankly racist, which I will explain in a moment) term.
According to Politico’s Marc Caputo, in a survey of 800 Hispanic DEMOCRAT voters (so it’s not even Independent or Republican Hispanics), 69% prefer the term “Hispanic”, 23% prefer “Latino”, 9% cite they have no preference and only 1% say they prefer the Leftist, gender-less term “Latinx”.
This, as I said, is not surprising. The Spanish language is heavily reliant on gender. Words like “el” and “la” are used to precede a word that is determined to be either masculine or feminine, respectively. For example, “el Rey” means “the king”, while “la Reina” means “the queen”. Even for things that do not necessarily have a gender in itself, like a shoe, have a gender in Spanish, as we call it “el zapato”. “La comida” refers to “the food”, “el burrito” refers to “the burrito”, “la biblioteca” refers to the library, etc. So it’s natural for us to have terms like “Latino” and “Latina” to refer to a Hispanic male or a Hispanic female, respectively.
For the Left white knights to come in and say that those two terms are “sexist” and “not inclusive” and that the term “Latinx” should instead be adopted spits in the face of the Spanish language and those who use it (and this is the racist part, since the Left declares themselves “protectors” of Hispanics in doing this, when they come off as nothing but “burros”).
Again, that poll was from Hispanic DEMOCRATS. Even Hispanic Democrats say that it’s dumb to use that term and that they prefer alternatives. Not that it matters to actual Democrats, of course. Despite the fact that they are not Hispanic and the fact that Hispanics don’t like the term, failed presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris have opted to exclusively use that term, with the former having had a campaign shirt that read: “Latinx for Warren”.
To their credit, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders don’t tend to use that term, but I suspect it’s only a matter of time until they are forced to use it by a “woke” Leftist base and Democrat Party that has no understanding of real life, narcissistically believing their way to be the only way.
I mean, an entire dictionary was coerced into adding that word and even declaring it their “word of the year” in 2018. It’s not a word and it never will be a word. Latinos LOATHE that word and it only shows how out of touch these Leftists are with real people. Not to mention their outright racism, as they believe they know better than us regarding what is “good” for us in terms of OUR OWN LANGUAGE AND HOW WE USE IT.
Far more Leftist white people use the false term “Latinx” than do actual Hispanics. And, speaking of Hispanics, why even use the term “Latinx” when Hispanic IS ALREADY GENDERLESS?! A “Hispanic” can refer to both men and women of Latin origin. A “Latino” does the same in some contexts, such as referring to “Latino” voters, but even if you want to pretend to be “progressive” and “woke” and “inclusive”, why not just use the term “Hispanic”? It both serves the “genderless” quota, because apparently, anything that is gendered is offensive in this day and age and can “harm” someone (seriously, I’ve seen someone use the word “Germxn” to refer to the language of Germany just because it had “man” in it and it offended them) and it’s popular among Latino voters, at least Latino Democrats, so there is no harm in using it.
The term “Latinx” is just an attempt by these “ultra-woke” idiots to pretend to be inclusive and open-minded and all that garbage. It serves no other purpose than to allow for Leftist white people who have never experienced a shred of adversity to feel good about themselves and pretend they are this generation’s Martin Luther King Jr., only in the form of a white person. It’s a selfish desire to pretend they are doing something meaningful and that there is as much injustice in the world as there was in the past, even though that is exceedingly untrue.
Such people read of the trials and tribulations of people in the past, of the almost heroic peaceful activism of MLK Jr, Malcolm X, Gandhi, etc., people who actually faced hardships in their lives, and wish to be remembered in a similar way. But since the troubles of the past are largely no longer around, such desires cannot be accomplished, so new troubles are created to pretend to fight. For example, the entire “climate activism” idiocy we see today. There is no evidence that suggests we are responsible for a warming or cooling climate, and yet, people feel the need to “come together” to “achieve something greater than ourselves” in order to “save the planet”.
It’s faux-scientific and utterly fictional lunacy, but people feel like they need to matter. In a culture that doesn’t believe in the God of the Bible, worth has to come from somewhere, and people find it in this idiotic activism, regardless of whether or not it’s actually good for people in the long-run (it isn’t, as it’s a tool for global communism).
And so, fictitious “struggles” of Hispanics are brought to the forefront of people who have no actual hardships to fight against and no actual struggles to thrive over, so that they might pretend to be an “ally” for us. It’s disingenuous and it’s insulting. Gendered language is not an issue to the vast majority of Latinos. It’s a fundamental part of our language. To suggest that it must be changed, particularly from the people who have no actual adversity to tackle, is racist and insulting.
Not that I expect anything less from these people. Racism and bigotry are staples of the Left, have been for ages and continue to be to this day. Often enough, we find that it’s the Left that creates the problems and adversities past generations have had to overcome, and yet, the try to take credit for victory when no such credit is due to them in the least. It’s the Left that fought for slavery. It’s the Left that fought for continued segregation. It’s the Left that is now demanding HISPANICS change our own language to be more “inclusive”.
The Left is absolutely horrible and they show that each and every day of our lives.
“’There is no peace,’ says the Lord, ‘for the wicked.’”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
