Radical Leftists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have taken over the Democrat Party.
They’re essentially running the show in Washington.
But one top Democrat just made a shocking statement that left Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flaming mad.
The “woke” Left is determined to change everything about America, such as rewriting the language to fit their politically-correct agenda.
This includes the recent adoption by the radical Left of the term “Latinx” to replace the gendered Spanish nouns, “Latino” and “Latina.”
But Hispanics are pushing back against the Left, with a recent poll showing only 2 percent of Hispanics use the term “Latinx,” with 30 percent saying they would likely not support a politician who uses the term.
One top Democrat, Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego, ripped the Left for using the term “Latinx.”
“To be clear my office is not allowed to use ‘Latinx’ in official communications,” Gallego tweeted.
“When Latino politicos use the term it is largely to appease white rich progressives who think that is the term we use. It is a vicious circle of confirmation bias,” continued Gallego.
“Adding an x and creating a new word comes off as performative,” he concluded.
Of course, Gallego is under fire for supposedly supporting so-called “gender-biased” language.
And the irony is that Gallego, who supports everything from open borders to “Medicare for All,” is one of the most left-wing Democrats in Congress.
But Gallego knows that Democrats are losing their standing with Hispanic voters nationwide because of the “woke” Left, with Hispanic strongholds like South Florida and Texas shifting heavily toward the Republican Party in 2020.
Which is why the “woke” Left would be wise to listen to Gallego’s warning.
