Last week, I ran across an article by some talking head/propagandist who told us that Latin Americans, by their very nature, are racists. Yup! I couldn’t believe it either. It came about when they attempted to cover for the LA City Council’s recent (secretly recorded) racist remarks by attributing their racism to “latinidad.”
In case you hadn’t yet heard on your local Big Brother Outlet, several LA City Council members have resigned when their objectively racist remarks during an official meeting with Labor were secretly recorded (likely) by the very people they were meeting and then leaked online.
Now, for my readers who do not speak Spanish, “latinidad” basically translates to “Latin-ocity” or “Latin-itude.” “Latinidad,” just like its English approximations, sounds just as invented in Spanish as it does in English. It’s a made-up word that roughly translates to ‘all things Latino.’
In the article that I ran across the other day (and I DO apologize that I can’t find it again), the writer was trying to downplay the abject racism that these elected officials displayed while conducting official business by attributing their racism to “Latinidad.” In other words, this propagandist tried to play off racism by his tribe by saying, “that’s just Latinos being Latinos.” Next thing we’re going to hear is, “Puerto Ricans are ‘passionate.’”
So, if you’re following along, this guy just painted an entire hemisphere as unreconstructed, uncivilized racists who are incapable of functioning in a modern society without letting their inner bigot-flag fly. If there were a broader brush with which to paint a people, I can’t imagine it. The giant irony here is that this ‘pundit’ exposed and confirmed his own “unconscious bias” when he demonstrated that racist birds DO flock together.
So, taking this crypto-racist seriously, why not take his idiotic statement and run with it? Stop ignoring their obvious spin and force them to embrace it and everything it implies. By his own statement, he claims every Latino is racist. And because this is a de facto disqualifier for participation in civilized society, did he just inadvertently disqualify every Latino from ever holding public office ever again?
His statement about latinidad was a throwaway statement never meant to be taken seriously or remembered; he had to say something to protect his tribe. But instead of letting his statement drift away and be forgotten like so much smoke in a mild breeze, we should start holding these zealots accountable for their statements and force them to LIVE their spin.
Here’s what I mean:
During the next selection election in Los Angeles, why not ask the Democrat Latino candidate, “it’s been said that all Latinos are racist. How will you overcome your racism and represent ALL Angelenos?” When they huff and puff and refuse to ‘dignify your question with a response,’ remind them of the LA City Council’s episode of official, casual racism now on display. Force them to confront the hypocrisy of their tribe and ball them up in knots as they try to extricate themselves. Don’t forget to laugh at them, the comedy writes itself.
And in case you thought democrats’ racism was limited to just Los Angeles elected officials, let me remind you of a speech in 2001 where Justice Soto-Mayor said,
“…Justice O'Connor has often been cited as saying that a wise old man and wise old woman will reach the same conclusion in deciding cases…I am also not so sure that I agree with the statement…”
“…I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life [emphasis mine].”
Notice that where former Justice O’Connor explicitly stated the equal capability of both men and women, Soto-Mayor disagreed with the premise! Instead, she inserted race into a non-racial discussion and said that “Latinos” are inherently ‘better.’ Not only did she explicitly claim that a Latino woman, by virtue of her race, would render a better judgment, but she is apparently casting herself in the role of this ‘wise Latina.’
My God, the hubris. Is it any wonder these people thought they could mandate that the entire world to wear a worthless surgical mask slave muzzle at their local Piggly Wiggly? This is how these people think.
So, how do we make Soto-Mayor live and defend her own stupid claim?
Soto – Mayor should be publicly and loudly asked this question at every possible occasion: “How can you judge ANY case or pretend to be impartial if you are a known racist?”
Or here’s another one, “Can you point to any decisions where your ‘latinidad’ produced a better decision than your white or male counterparts?”
Don’t forget: these aren’t our definitions; these aren’t our rules. These are the definitions that our enemies have offered themselves. We must force them to defend their hypocrisy. And as you’ve seen in recent years, they twist themselves into Gordian Knots defending the indefensible, and it’s hilarious!
Here’s another case illustrative of the larger point:
During her confirmation hearing for SCOTUS earlier this year, Katanji-Brown was asked and couldn’t answer what a woman was. In spite of the fact that she, herself, was equipped with the requisite equipment indicative of the gender, she was still unable to define herself. She answered by saying that she “wasn’t a biologist.”
Who knew?! Who knew that one needed a bachelor’s degree in the natural sciences to figure out which clothing department at Target to buy its clothes (you know she ain’t no Walmart grrrl)!
Now you and I both know that her stupid answer was nothing more than a dodge to avoid the wrath of the Alphabet People. But to this I say, “fine! Good!” We now have a SCOTUS justice who testified that she is so ignorant of…of….geeze, I can’t even describe how BASIC the information is that she claims ignorance of. Katanji-Brown claims ignorance of something so basic that 3-year-olds have figured it out.
To be honest, I think the confirmation committee really missed an opportunity here to force her to live her non-truth. Some great follow up questions could have been:
“OK, I understand that you would like to avoid answering questions so broad and expansive that you risk offending someone; that is very polite of you. So, let me ask you: Are YOU a woman? Are there any justices on the Court now that you suspect of being a woman?”
The irony here is that we, again, have their own words to declare their stupidity and obtuseness. We aren’t ascribing or speculating at all. Our future dismissal of literally any opinion she renders will be answered with, “yeah, but can she tell me what a woman is?” as we laugh at her.
Again, to this I say, “fine!” Why? Because she has absolutely disqualified herself from rendering ANY opinion at all, ever, inside the courtroom or out, that has even the slightest sexual component.
These justices give interviews, so why don’t we take it upon ourselves to make sure we make it through the call screener with the Communist-friendly (and obviously falsely premised) question, “You are so brave! What’s it like to be the first POC on the court?” and then, when you make it on the air, you instead ask, “I loved how you handled your confirmation hearings! But how do you know you’re not a man?”
These people not only should be mocked, but they should be mocked mercilessly, publicly and at every opportunity. These animals and anti-civilization zealots absolutely seek the limelight and adoration of their tribe. We should infiltrate that tribe (you know, like the K-FBI-GB infiltrates domestic terrorist groups that they themselves create) and cause absolute havoc. The bonus here is that because every value they have, every special sub-group that exists for them (infinitely sub-divided to create specialness out of people who are uniquely not special at all), when they attempt to use logical gymnastics to defend the indefensible, they will invariably insult or sleight some other sub-group. This is how internecine warfare is fostered; blow on that smoldering ember.
We are at war and going on the offense is NEVER a bad idea. No army has ever won a war playing defense. These people are absolutely ripe for mockery and ego deflation. Let’s help that along, shall we?
