Because a few Latino men participated in a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, leftist outlet Mic.com thinks they qualify to use the term white supremacist to describe themselves.
At the Unite the Right rally in August, Alex Michael Ramos, a 33-year-old Puerto Rican, helped gang up on and beat a black man in Virginia. According to Mic, he even called himself “the only brown Klans member” he knows. Christopher Rey Monzon, a 22-year-old Cuban-American, was there, too. He hangs with the League of the South, a neo-Confederate group noted by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group. Both of these men have participated in violence at various rallies. There was another, Nick Fuentes, a 19-year-old host of the podcast America First. Mic uses these men's stories to craft its own:
The presence of these Latino men at the largest white nationalist event in recent memory underscores the complicated racial position of Latinos in the United States. Latino white supremacy, it turns out, might not be a contradiction in terms.
Mic then uses the Left’s own tactic of allowing anyone to identify as whatever they’d like regardless of what science says:
Increasingly, Latinos are identifying racially as white. In fact, more than half did so in the 2010 U.S. Census. Fuentes — who says he’s about 25% Mexican — describes himself as white, not Latino. In an interview with Mic, Fuentes also said he believes multiculturalism threatens white national identity.
If that isn’t “convincing” enough, there is the Anti-Defamation League’s Joanna Mendelson who said Latino immigrants are becoming increasingly hostile to illegal aliens: “It’s this idea that, ‘We did it right, we did it legally.’ They’re not just addressing illegal immigration — which would be one thing — but they’re against refugees and Muslims and legal immigration. They demonize the ‘other,’ but the irony is that they were once the ‘other.’”
Mendelson also said Latino’s have found camaraderie with white supremacist gangs in prison and are, therefore, partners in controlling aspects of the prison yard.
“In some ways, they will overlook any discrepancies in order to expand their numbers. And Latinos are, in some way, kind of the one group that is allowed a kind of a pass. Not Jews, not blacks, not Asians,” Mendelson added.
Mic solidified its argument that Latinos are essentially white because their numbers are so large:
With a current population of around 58 million, Latinos make up the second-largest ethnic group in the U.S., just behind whites. But even as mainstream America becomes more Latino, it’s important to note that with greater numbers comes greater visibility — and influence goes both ways.
Even though a major reason Donald Trump won the election was his strong stance on getting illegal aliens out of the country, Mic argues that “some Latinos are still drawn to radically conservative, white-nationalist groups.” Now they’re just making up names.
To recap: Mic finds exactly three "white Latinos" and has figured that means there is a surge in "radically conservative" immigrants. Is that why so many of them voted for Hillary Clinton?
