Like every other racial minority in this country, the Hispanic American community has had just about enough of the incessant liberal pandering from Democrats.
The use of progressive jargon like “LatinX” combined with the Democrats’ horrific economic and immigration policies has resulted in a mass Latin exodus from the liberal party as more Hispanic voters signal a willingness to go GOP.
This was proven in the 2016 and 2022 presidential elections when Donald Trump earned more of the Hispanic (and African American) vote than any Republican candidate before him. And the mass exit from the Democrat Party continues today.
First Lady “Dr.” Jill Biden clearly demonstrated by Hispanic Americans have soured on the Democrats during a speech she gave on Monday in San Antonio, Texas.
Dr. Jill was a featured speaker at a “LatinX IncluXion” luncheon, an event intended to highlight the importance of Latinos in America, but in fact, it merely served as a campaign stop for the Biden administration.
Republicans and conservative Hispanics chided the first lady for not just the name of the event but also what she said.
Others criticized the event’s usage of the term “Latinx,” a gender-neutral version of the term “Latino” that is often used despite being disfavored among many Latino voters. Only 2% refer to themselves as Latinx, while 40% said they were offended by the term, according to a December poll. Another 30% said they were less likely to vote for a candidate who used the term.
Everyone knows that not a single Hispanic uses "Latinx." The reason why woke corporations and Democrats keep imposing it on us is to control how we think about gender, and thus, how we vote.
Unfortunately for them, we believe in God, Family, and Freedom — not MarXism. https://t.co/yjcjCCWith

Biden used her speech to call on Hispanics to band together in the upcoming elections and point to the “diversity of this community” that is required to implement change, but what went down was the height of liberal embarrassment.
Detractors mocked the first lady for her pronunciation of “bodegas,” pronouncing it as “bogidas,” and saying the Hispanic community is as unique as the “breakfast tacos” in San Antonio.

As clips of Jill’s speech circulated around social media, Republicans trounced the first lady for her woke pandering to the Hispanic American community as if they somehow require special attention from the Biden administration.
Republican Rep. Andy Biggs isn’t surprised that Hispanics are fleeing the Democrat Party in record numbers given the fact that this is how they pandered to by the First Lady.

The National Association of Hispanic Journalists, an organization for Latinos in the media, also admonished Biden for demonstrating “a lack of cultural knowledge and sensitivity to the diversity of Latinos in the region” over her breakfast tacos comment.
NAHJ encourages @FLOTUS & her communications team to take time to better understand the complexities of our people & communities.
We are not tacos.
Our heritage as Latinos is shaped by various diasporas, cultures & food traditions.

The first lady also used the event to speak out against the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and to call on lawmakers to pass a federal ban on so-called assault weapons.
Meanwhile, the Latin community is known to be one of the most pro-Catholic groups in the U.S. and certainly doesn’t hold favorable views on all-access abortion. They aren’t gun shy either, as proven by FBI statistics, which show that Hispanic Americans are arming themselves at a higher rate than ever before.
This clearly explains why Joe Biden’s popularity among Hispanics, historically a crucial voting bloc for the Democratic Party, is on the decline.
