BIDEN: “It’s awful hard as well to get Latinx vaccinated… Why? They’re worried they’ll be vaccinated and deported.”
Joe Biden traveled to Raleigh as part of a nationwide campaign to boost vaccination rates before the July 4th holiday. His speech didn’t go well, it’s bad enough that he confused the Tuskegee Airmen with the African American victims of the infamous decades-long Tuskegee syphilis study, but then he referred to Latinos as “Latinx.”
Making such a transparent attempt to look “woke” isn’t going to dissuade his critics from referring to him as “Sleepy Joe.”
“A term being pushed by PC culture advocates, even though absolutely no one who is actually Latino uses it.
Apparently, it’s supposed to be “inclusive” of Latin American non binary people, even though most don’t care if you refer to them as Latino.
LatinX is a bullshit word made up by people who are not even Latino themselves.”
Spanish is a gendered language, get over it.”
The only ones I ever hear use “Latinx” are politicians, pundits and pendejos. I’m a Latino and I have never heard anyone in my family or any of my friends or acquaintances utter that ridiculous word.
Conservatives are always accusing progressives like me of advancing “cancel culture”, but the only thing I really want to cancel is the word “Latinx” from the lexicon.
Pray tell, why does Biden assume that every Latino is an undocumented person who isn’t vaccinated because he/she fears deportation.
I’m a proud fully-vaccinated Latino who was born in the United States, who fears being called “Latinx” by wankers and pretentious idiots.
