Hello, I am Hispanic, ‘Latinx’ is a stupid word and you need to stop using it

Hello, I am an American of Mexican descent and I am here to tell you that the attempt to normalize the word “Latinx” is really stupid and you should stop using it right now.

For the majority of people who are wondering why “Latinx” is being used by some people in the media, don’t blame the real Latinos, we didn’t make it up. It was made up by the transgender lobby because Spanish is a gendered language, which is simply an expression of nature, and they can’t allow that insult to their political agenda.

In other words, “Latino” refers to males, and “Latina” refers to females. But that is “exclusionary” to transgender people, so they are trying to erase words for the sake of political gain.

And we all know this is very very estupido.

Among the stronger arguments against the use of the phrase is that it is simply rejected by the vast majority of Latinos. I understand why transgender people argue that people should refer to them by the name they choose out of politeness, but Latinos have in no way chosen to use “Latinx,” so why should this word be imposed on us?

You might be asking how many Latinos actually use the word.

A Pew poll conducted in December 2019 found that only THREE PERCENT of Latinos in the U.S. say they use the phrase to refer to themselves. THREE PERCENT.

And only 27% of Latinos have even HEARD of the word!!

Languages change. New words are introduced all the time and others pass out of usage. This is normal. But it is not normal or right for a political agenda to impose, some might say in a colonial manner, a word on an entire demographic of people who reject it.

So stop using the stupid word. Pendejos.

UPDATE: I had to add this perfectly phrased description by the inimitable David Burge:

Exactly right. He brought it up because yet another poll showed how few Hispanics use the term. This time it is a Gallup poll of 1,381 Americans that found only 4% of Hispanics use the term “Latinx.” Not only that, but the vast majority answered “it does not matter” by what subgroup they are called! Amazing.

Here’s a pretty decent video about the use of the word Latinx and where it came from:

They conclude the phrase just doesn’t represent most Latinos, who prefer to be identified with the country of their origin.

Gavin Newsom’s rent forgiveness scheme assures that rent will continue to spiral out of control

California’s Dem. Govenor Gavin Newsom has just assured that rents there will continue to skyrocket in price and spiral out of reach for most of the residents.

That’s because he said the state will pay all the late rent of every Californian:

Now look, some of this will undoubtedly help people who really need it. But here’s the problem – some of this money will go towards people who really can’t afford to live in the place they’re living. This just kicks the can down the road, and in the meantime, rents (and probably property values too) will continue to skyrocket.

Some people are going to point out that California has rent control. It does. And that will make rent skyrocket too because it incentivizes people to stay in their apartments and never move. That means every new apartment unit will have much higher rents on and on forever.

It’s an unpleasant thing but evictions are a kind of relief valve for inflated markets. There is a high demand for more rental units, and because there haven’t been enough units built in the last ten years, there’s very low supply. Evictions, as terrible as they are, are a way to increase supply where it’s needed.

Instead, California is choosing the short term gratification that will lead to more long term pain. Reality keeps trying to teach us the same lessons, and stupid people refuse to learn them.

It’s the classic cycle of socialism. Some things are bad, so people blame the rich and turn to socialism. Socialists make it worse, blame the rich, and call for more socialism. More socialism makes it much worse, so they blame the rich and demand much more socialism…

Mike Flynn denies saying there should be a coup in the U.S., even though it’s on video

Mike Flynn is asking people to not believe their lying eyes and their lying ears when they see and hear him clearly say on video that there should be a coup in the U.S. like there was in Myanmar.

Here’s the video where he tells a guy that there should be a coup here in the U.S.:

Now, in case you didn’t hear, or you don’t trust your lying ears, here’s what was said:

Guy in the crowd: “I’m a simple Marine. I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here.”

Crowd: LOUD APPPLAUSE

Hero General Mike Flynn: “No reason, I mean, it should happen here, no reason, that’s right.”

Crowd: EVEN LOUDER APPLAUSE

Anyway, none of that happened. Flynn isn’t saying that someone doctored the video, or it isn’t his voice, no, he’s just saying it didn’t happen.

For all the fake news reporting:

Let me be VERY CLEAR – There is NO reason whatsoever for any coup in America, and I do not and have not at any time called for any action of that sort. Any reporting of any other belief by me is a boldface fabrication based on twisted reporting at a lively panel at a conference of Patriotic Americans who love this country, just as I do. I am no stranger to media manipulating my words and therefore let me repeat my response to a question asked at the conference: There is no reason it (a coup) should happen here (in America).

God Bless our military and our veterans on this somber day of celebration of Memorial Day.”

Eh, I’m sure they’re all joking right. Also everyone who tried to interrupt the confirmation of the election results were all secret Antifas. Except that one girl who was killed, she was a hero, because that makes total sense.

If you believe that, I got a quilt to sell you:

Well you know what the founders said. Sometimes the quilt of liberty has to be replenished with the blood of commies, or something like that.
