Politico: Democrats Are Alienating “Latinx” Voters

It has been a running joke here for a year now.

The Democrats who wield power in America are largely, but not exclusively, weird, condescending, super politically correct White people with college degrees who live in coastal metros. They have been alienating and driving off the White working class for decades now. The use of the term “Latinx” to pander to 2% of the Hispanic population who are college educated, gender neutral, progressive activists imbued with social justice ideology that is offensive to 40% of Hispanic voters sums up the party.

Politico:

“As Democrats seek to reach out to Latino voters in a more gender-neutral way, they’ve increasingly begun using the word Latinx, a term that first began to get traction among academics and activists on the left.

But that very effort could be counterproductive in courting those of Latin American descent, according to a new nationwide poll of Hispanic voters.

Only 2 percent of those polled refer to themselves as Latinx, while 68 percent call themselves “Hispanic” and 21 percent favored “Latino” or “Latina” to describe their ethnic background, according to the survey from Bendixen & Amandi International, a top Democratic firm specializing in Latino outreach.

More problematic for Democrats: 40 percent said Latinx bothers or offends them to some degree and 30 percent said they would be less likely to support a politician or organization that uses the term. …”

You think?

White people suck. Vote for us.

That’s the pitch we hear from the Democrats.

When White people vote against the Democrats in ever greater numbers because these people are seen as woke and annoying, it is interpreted by progressive activists as confirmation of “white supremacy” and systematic racism. Jamelle Bouie and Perry Bacon, Jr. and the rest of the woke black professionals will not stand for “White appeasement.” The Democrats will continue to use “Latinx” for similar reasons.

If the Democrats simply gave up on open borders and Wokeism and denounced Antifa, they could probably turn around their electoral slide. They are not going to do this though. They are willing to sacrifice their entire economic agenda for the sake of deeply unpopular culture war positions. They have only become more aggressively anti-White as White voters have soured on them.

    • How patronizing and “great white father” attitude these east coast, hyper educated (brainwashed) white college elites are showing to hispanics. Rejecting their language which is rich in gendered terms for noun and telling them they have to change it because rich gringos don’t like it because it offends transvestites etc. Top that off with the economic decline and there is much to sour on with the democrats. They only voted for the democrats for two reasons: perceived policies favoring the blue collar service job class, and the perception that the republicans are the national party of the native born whites they sense never really authorized them to invade here en masse.

  1. LatinX is the stupidest shit ever. If Hispanics were more victim-oriented, it might work a little. As it is, we just mock the White libs who try to speak Latin and Gender and do neither very well.

  2. Which is worse? Jewish subversives, or the numerous, ostensibly White, SJW stooges who aid and abet them?

    • @James Owen – The White, race-traitor SJW stooges are the lowest form of humanity. At least Jews have loyalty to their own tribe.

  3. I think “Latrinos” is fitting. “Latin-rhinos”. LOL. Some of my best friends are poor, starving, Hispanic Roman Catholic intellectuals. Just remember Puerto Rico is bigger than Texas.

  4. All of this criticism is well earned. Makes you wonder why they control the entirety of the Government, Military, Media, Financial Institutions, Academic Institutions etc.

    Basically anything of importance.

  5. They aren’t Latin. Real Hispanics–Spanish and Portuguese, are. So are the rest of the Southern Europeans. Mexicans are Asians who speak Spanish and took Spanish surnames, but most have little to no Spanish blood.
    It’s just like any form that goes to the government wants to know your “ethnicity” and lets you choose between “Hispanic or non-Hispanic”. They’ve been doing this for a long time.

    • That’s right “Pilot”, thanks for telling us stuff we already knew. Here’s something you apparently didn’t know: the group of Spanish speaking non-Latins you are referring to are called MESTIZOS.

      PS: Is it true you’re afraid of your wife’s black son?

  6. “Which is worse? Jewish subversives, or the numerous, ostensibly White, SJW stooges who aid and abet them?”

    The latter, by far.

    The reason the tiny minority of Cultural Marxist race traitor scum weaseled their way into controlling everything is Credentialism: they all went to the handful of Ivy League schools where they were all taught the exact same anti-White jewshit, and having one of those hugely-expensive diplomas is the essential ticket for governmental/corporate/cultural control. Once ensconced, they are virtually impossible to dislodge because they’re hyper-vigilant and keep out all Whites who don’t fully accept (((The Agenda))).

    “Impossible to dislodge” by peaceful means, that is.
