(Patriot Insider) – Arkansas has its first female governor and she’s not messing around with the progressive liberal agenda or the left’s use of offensive, “woke” language.
Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders was sworn in on Tuesday and she immediately made it known the use of “inclusive” language will not be tolerated on her watch. She has prohibited the use of the left’s term “Latinx” in government documents via an executive order.
She cited a Pew Research poll that found only 3% of American Latinos and Hispanics used the term to describe themselves as justification for banning the term on a government level.
“Ethnically insensitive and pejorative language has no place in official government documents or government employee titles,” Sanders’ executive order states. “The government has a responsibility to respect its citizens and use ethnically appropriate language, particularly when referring to ethnic minorities.”
In their infinite wisdom progressives came up with the absurd “Latinx” term as a gender-neutral alternative to the Spanish words Latino and Latina. As anyone with just a cursory understanding of Spanish knows, the entire language is based on gender which likely causes woke leftists emotional trauma.
Sanders further noted in the executive order, as per Fox News, “that the Real Academia Española, a Madrid-based institution that serves as a linguistic guide for Spanish, officially rejects the use of “x” to replace “o” and “a” as a way to identify gender in the language.”
“One can no more easily remove gender from Spanish and other romance languages than one can remove vowels and verbs from English,” the executive order states. “It is the policy of the Governor’s administration to prohibit the use of culturally insensitive words for official state government business.”
Arkansas is sure lucky to have Gov. Sanders who now serves in the same post as her father, Mike Huckabee, who was governor of the state from 1996 to 2007. Not only is she Arkansas’ first female governor but she’s the youngest in the country at 40-years-old.
Fox News Digital also reported that Sanders is set to sign another executive order that will ban the use of Chinese-owned TikTok on state devices and government networks. The order is in line with similar bans by the federal government and more than 20 other states.
Sanders first rose to national prominence when she served as President Trump’s press secretary in 2019. As governor, she has stated she plans to focus on education because she is a mother.
“I’ve made no secret that the biggest priority I have for this session is a large-scale education reform package,” Sanders said. “I am living it every day with a fifth-grader, a third-grader and a first-grader, and I feel the impact of education and what it means and what it means to each kid.”
Sanders is sure to be a success in the role of governor. She’s already off to a great start. It’s a shame there aren’t more governors across the US willing to take such direct action against the left’s radical, “woke” agenda.
