•Who Made ‘Latin America’ Latin? The idea (repeat, idea) goes back to the 1830s, particularly the writings of the Frenchman Michel Chevalier, a follower of Saint-Simon (a utopian socialist). Chevalier argued that this part of the Americas was populated by those of a “Latin race” (I guess the indigenous element was considered irrelevant or too primitive to count) and that, therefore, “Latin” America could join with “Latin” Europe in the struggle against “Teutonic” Europe, “Slavic” Europe and “Anglo-Saxon” America. This theory (repeat, theory) was adopted later in the 19th century by “Latin American” intellectuals who preferred the French cultural model to that of Spain or Portugal. The specific term “Latin America” was coined in France during the reign of Napoleon III (1852-1870) and used politically by him to promote the idea (repeat, idea) of a cultural connection with France, turn France into a major player in the region, and install Maximilian as Emperor of Mexico with French backing.
In other words, this was all a French concoction to benefit France, but the Latrines, I mean “Latin Americans,” bit on it, and the rest is history. I’m telling you all this information because, somehow, I don’t think you’re going to be hearing it from the “Latino” establishment any time soon or in any great detail. Latins, of course, originally and properly refers to the ancient Romans, to whom somebody like, say, Evo Morales or Hugo Chávez bears little or no relation–unless, of course, you’re French.

•Latinx? No Thanx…
The very idea of a “Latin America” and “latin” people comes from the French intellectual Michel Chevalier, who sought to create an umbrella term in the late 1800s in order to unite colonial subjects under a generic “latin” identity. In doing so, Chevalier hoped to assist Napoleon III in expanding the French empire. Chevalier hoped that if he could convince Mexicans to adopt a “latin” view of themselves, they would be more inclined to ally themselves with French interests. After all, the French would now be their “latin” brethren, as opposed to the “Saxons” who also had interests in Mexico. As Historian Thomas Holloway notes, “Napoleon III was particularly interested in using the concept to help justify his intrusion into Mexican politics that led to the imposition of Archduke Maximilian as Emperor of Mexico…”

•The term Latin America was coined in the 1860s when the French emperor Napoleon III was trying to extend French imperial control over the whole region. He and his ministers used the term to try to suggest at least some degree of cultural similarity between the region and France as a way to benefit France of course, seeing that they had their sights on invading and colonizing more of our homelands of the Western Hemisphere.
THIS WAS INTENTIONAL: The plan is revealed by Ecuadorean general Guillermo Rodriguez Lara, after assuming power in 1972, stated, “There is no more Indian Problem. We all become white men when we accept the goals of the national (invasive species) culture.” Every wonder why government issued birth certificates labeled you as ‘white’? This is the intentional war of assimilation and domestication to keep you from remembering what their ancestors did, and what the descendants of the invaders are still doing to us. We can’t afford another generation of our youth to unknowingly identify themselves with savage barbaric rape and invader cultures! They need to know who they really are and now that we know who we are, it’s our duty to prepare the next generation for liberation. Don’t throw them into the hands of the invaders and their indoctrination centers to have their beautiful ancestral minds shut down and smashed with propaganda and brainwashing lies. The least you can do for our ancestors is to prepare our children to be better ancestors. We have that power now, to change the outcome of our people’s future.
