This is why Latin Americans are #WALKINGAWAY.

Language is important and words do matter. Through language we learn, we communicate our intentions, we develop plans, and we express our feelings. Through language we convey our affections and transmit our displeasures. It is language that binds a family, a community, a region, or a culture together. Today, however, this fundamental cultural glue is purposefully being watered down and dissolved in order to break the bonds of our nation.

Wokeism in its purest forms breaks down clarity, and replaces truth with new grievance norms that masquerade as justice. Wokeists try to negate centuries of tradition, culture and science (!) by socially shaming opposing views and using coercive tactics on young children to adopt concepts that go against every grain of common sense and human understanding of the world around us. Woke gender ideology, being so totally antithetical to the Latino language and culture, plays a huge part of why Hispanics are universally turning away from the Democrat party

Growing up I learned that faith, family, and individuality means something. As immigrants, I knew that my family was clearly proud of where we came from, and was intent on never forgetting the language of our home country. My mother therefore would not allow me to speak English in my home. She emphasized, as she caught a couple of English sentences, she would say “Habla en Cristiano, (expletive).” She would later tell me it's because our language came from the original pure Christian language of Latin, and was discernibly clearer in its expression than the English common language. Those conversations secured in my mind that we are not only a proud people, but a people who didn’t like mincing or especially confusing words.
