AOC Goes on Bizarre “Mini-Rant” Against Democrats Who Dropped “Latinx” Term

Over the past few months, minority Democrats have railed against the term “Latinx”, meant to be a gender-neutral version of “Latino/Latina”.

Polls show a full 40% of Hispanic said the term bothers or offends them to some degree, but AOC either doesn’t believe it or doesn’t care.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) criticized members of her own party who say continuing to use the term could be harmful to Democrats at the polls.

“I also have a mini-rant about this because there are some politicians, including Democratic politicians, that rail against the term ‘Latinx.’ And they’re like, ‘This is so bad, this is so bad for the party,’ like blah blah blah,” she said in a video posted to her Instagram account. “And like it’s almost like it hasn’t struck some of these folks that another person’s identity is not about your re-election prospects.”

Lincoln Project co-founder Mike Madrid wrote in a New York Times guest essay that use of the term could help drive Hispanic voters to the Republican party.

“Commonly used by media, political and academic elites as a sign of gender inclusivity, ‘Latinx’ is virtually nonexistent in the communities it refers to,” he wrote.

“Members of the Democratic Party don’t just live in a distinct cultural bubble removed from the realities of their blue-collar counterparts; they are so removed from the rapidly growing Hispanic working class that many of them are now literally speaking a different language.”

Notably, Democratic Texas Representative Ruben Gallego said his office is barred from using the phrase.

“When Latino politicos use the term it is largely to appease white rich progressives who think that is the term we use,” he said. “It is a vicious circle of confirmation bias.”

Despite the overwhelming evidence against her position, Ocasio-Cortez remains unconvinced.

AOC is a loud mouthed pig who just isn’t smart enough to hold any office. Makes me laugh that she thinks men who criticize her want to date her. Apparently AOC doesn’t own a mirror or she would realize that is definitely not the case.

In every European language I have heard, addressing a motley crowd of both genders is done in the masculine: like ‘Move over, lads!’ And nobody is offended, except perhaps American femi-Nazis. And naming teams ‘Redskins’ insults no Native Americans (like me). Why don’t we just wake up and get over it?
