Pew Research Center’s Hispanic trends found that Hispanics are categorically rejecting the label of “Latinx.”
The question of pan-ethnic labels to describe people with origins from Latin America and Spain has been a subject of discussion for decades. Over the decades there has been a consensus to label such people as Hispanic and Latino.
However, the political correctness crowd made sure to politicize these labels by introducing the new term Latinx, which is allegedly gender neutral and pan-ethnic. In the Spanish language, nouns, pronouns, and adjectives have feminine and masculine forms. This is way too much for politically correct activists in the West who want to export their politically correct ethos abroad.
That said, only a few Hispanics have embraced this politically correct flavor of the week. Of the U.S. adults who identify as Hispanic, only 23 percent of them have heard of the term Latinx. A measly 3 percent indicated that they use the term to describe themselves, according to a bilingual survey of U.S. Hispanic adults carried out in December 2019 by the Pew Research Center.
Although only a quarter of U.S. Hispanics claim to have heard about the term Latinx, there is a clear generational gap between its usage among different subgroups. Young Hispanics, between the ages of 18 to 29, are the most likely to have heard of the term, with 42 percent of them being acquainted with the term, whereas 7 percent of those 65 or older have heard of the term.
College-educated Hispanics are more likely to have heard the term Latinx than individuals without a college education. Approximately 38 percent of college graduates have heard of Latinx, in addition to 31 percent of those with college experience. By contrast, only 14 percent of those with a high school diploma or less are acquainted with the label.
Additionally, U.S. born Hispanics are more likely than the foreign born to have heard the term (32 percent to 16 percent). Hispanics who mainly speak English or are bilingual are more likely than individuals who mainly speak Spanish to have heard of the term (29 percent for the former vs. 7 percent for the latter.)
Awareness of the term does not translate into overall usage. Of Hispanic women ages 18 to 29, only 14 percent of them use the term. On the other hand, 1 percent of Hispanic men of that age group use the term.
It’s good to hear that Hispanics are rejecting this politically concocted term. The gender wars that the Left is waging are meant to create disruption. The last thing we need in the U.S. is more divisiveness and social instability brought about by the PC mad scientists.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
