Shocker: Arizona Democrat Congressman Advises Democrats to Stop Using the Term “Latinx”

A Democrat Actually Comes to His Senses

2020 is full of all sorts of surprises.

Wokeness is in the air and one would think that everyone would completely submit to this destructive trend being promoted by the cultural Left.

Obviously, many on the Right have rightfully opposed woke culture and all tempts to frame human interactions and American history under this lens. Now, the Right may have some strange bedfellows in opposing the ever-growing woke culture.

Let’s take a look at Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego. After Democrats had a relatively mediocre showing with Hispanic voters in the 2020 election, many questions arose about why Democrats have not made further improvements with this demographic. One Twitter user Zandar asked Gallego on Twitter the following question:

Ruben, honest question, how do we as a party improve our work with the LatinX community across the country as well as we’ve done in AZ? Its so frustrating to see so many republican LatinX voters, but I know its on people like me to help convince them dems are the place to be.

Gallego firmly responded:

First start by not using the term Latinx. Second we have to be in front of them year round not just election years. That is what we did in AZ.

Latinx is a term that has gained traction in leftist milieus across the U.S. It’s a gender neutral alternative to the masculine term “Latino” which has traditionally been used to refer to men and other mixed-gender groups. Latinx is seen as a more palatable term that conforms with the politically correct sensibilities of leftist elites. Like any out of touch leftist concept, the term “Latinx” is only used by 3 percent of American Hispanics

Matt Yglesias of Vox mentioned one important factoid regarding Gallego and the district he represents: It’s a “a heavily working-class, heavily Hispanic area in and around Phoenix.” The district he represents is Arizona’s 7th district, which is 56 percent Hispanic. It has been solidly Democrat since 2002 and Gallego won his district in 2020 by an emphatic margin of 77 to 23 percent.

It’s good to see a few Democrats rejecting some of the most perverse forms of political correctness that liberal elites are trying to impose on Americans of all stripes. We can only hope that Gallego is joined by other Democrat colleagues in rejecting the Latinx term and not advancing leftist tropes.

Baylor University Students Rallied in Favor of Removing Monument of the University’s Co-Founder

Even Texas isn’t safe from woke iconoclasm.

America’s culturally radical experiment will never end. 

On February 1, 2021, a number of Baylor University students kicked off a protest in front of the statue of Judge Robert Emmett Bledsoe Baylor, calling for its removal. According to the Baylor Lariat, the demonstration took place on the 176th anniversary of Baylor University’s  founding and the first day of Black History Month.

According to Dion J. Pierre of Campus Reform, the protesters were dressed in all-black and held Black Lives Matter signs as they surrounded the statue for a photograph.

 “The point of the picture is not to remove Judge Baylor as a whole,” student Sam Onilenla commented.  “It’s to remove Judge Baylor from campus. I don’t want to see it on campus because I know I’m not supposed to be here, according to him. Having him off campus is going to be the start of racial healing.”

Onilenla continued by observing that Baylor was a “slave owner…and Confederacy supporter” whose effigy has no place “right in front of Waco Hall.” 

“There’s nothing religious about killing slaves or having those ideas,” Onilenla declared.

The Baylor student wants the Baylor statue to be moved to the Mayborn Museum. 

The protest of this statue was motivated by an incident in January when the Baylor University Police Department was called in to address a noise complaint against black students in the library. 

One officer allegedly said, “this is not a basketball arena. This is a study area.” 

According to the Baylor Lariat, the students were offended by the officers’ statement, which led them to create a petition that ended up receiving over 3,000 signatures.

On February 16 to 17, the Baylor Board of Regents reviewed a report and heard presentations by the Commission on Historic Campus Representations. This commission was set up in 2020 to determine if any “statues, buildings, or other tangible tributes on the Waco campus reflect a racist past.” 

This entity will likely determine the fate of the Baylor monument.

Texas has not been exempt from the cultural radicalism that most of the nation has been subjected to during the last year.

In a BLP report, athletes at the University of Texas were considering the removal of “The Eyes of Texas” song because of its supposedly racial connotations.

Texas right-wingers need to get ready to defend their heritage. The fights ahead will be cultural in nature and very much outside the milquetoast economic subjects they generally talk about.
