(PatrioticPost.com)- Democrat politicians have gone all-in on using the term “Latinx” to appeal to Hispanic voters. The only problem is, Hispanic voters aren’t particularly keen on the term.
According to a poll conducted by the Democrat firm Bendixen & Amandi International, only 2 percent of Hispanic registered voters surveyed identify themselves as “Latinx.” What’s more 40 percent of them say they are offended by the made-up, hispandering word.
According to Fernand Amandi, Democrats’ embrace of the term Latinx is “a violation of the political Hippocratic Oath,” which he describes as “first do no electoral harm.” Amandi wonders how Democrats expect to win over Hispanics by insisting on using a word that only 2 percent of them prefer and 40 percent find offensive.
But it gets worse. Of the Hispanics surveyed, 30 percent said they would be less likely to support a politician or organization that insists on describing the Latin American community as “Latinx.”
The whole stupid word change was an attempt by the Left to find a “gender-neutral” term for people in the Hispanic community. Since Latino is masculine and Latina is feminine, the morons thought removing the O and the A and replacing it with an X was a great idea.
But nobody even knows how to pronounce it. Is it pronounced “Latin X” or is it pronounced “Latinx” like Linx?
Democrat Congressman Ruben Gallego of Arizona, in responding to the survey, pointed out that there is already a gender-neutral term for Hispanics, namely “Hispanic.” Gallego, whose office has banned the use of the made-up “Latinx” in official writing, argued that adding the X and creating a new word “comes off as performative.”
Of course it’s performative. That’s the point. Democrats are performative by nature.
Gallego believes if Hispanic politicians use the stupid term at all, they only do so “to appease white rich progressives who think that is the term we use.”
A 2019 poll by Pew Research found that 76 percent of Hispanic American adults had never even heard of “Latinx” before. Twenty-three percent had heard of it, but only a measly 3 percent of them used the word to describe themselves.
