The House Oversight Panel has called upon Twitter officials to testify regarding its censorship of the salacious Hunter Biden laptop story. The officials are former Twitter executives who have been asked to appear at a hearing next month.

Committee chairman James Comer (R., Ky.) has asked former Twitter officials Vijaya Gadde, Yoel Roth and James Baker to testify about Twitter’s ban of the New York Post’s story on Hunter’s laptop. Specifically, its “hacked materials” policy used as its justification.

“On December 6, 2022, I wrote to you requesting your appearance at a Committee hearing during the 118th Congress. Your attendance is necessary because of your role in suppressing Americans’ access to information about the Biden family on Twitter shortly before the 2020 election,” Comer wrote in letters to each of the three former officials on Wednesday.

“This letter reiterates the Committee’s request and — for your convenience in planning travel — informs you of the hearing date, which will be the week of February 6,” Comer added.

The officials must reply by January 18. The committee can vote to compel them to appear if they do not respond to the request. According to journalist Matt Taibbi’s “Twitter files” reporting, the decision to block the Hunter report and story was made without the knowledge of former CEO Jack Dorsey.

Hispanic Democrats ban term ‘Latinx’ used ‘to appease white rich progressives’

Lawmakers in Connecticut which are both Hispanic and Democrats, have proposed a new state law to ban the term “Latinx” from all government documents. The term is deemed offensive by the lawmakers who want to end the practice.

“I’m of Puerto Rican descent and I find it offensive,” Democratic state representative Geraldo Reyes told the Associated Press.

“The Spanish language, which is centuries old, defaults to Latino for everybody,” Reyes added. “It’s all-inclusive. They didn’t need to create a word, it already exists.”

Reyes is the bill’s chief sponsor, and was joined by four other Hispanic Democrats who are also members of then Black and Puerto Rican Caucus in the Connecticut Legislature.

The Connecticut lawmakers are not alone in their sentiment. In 2021, Democratic Representative Ruben Gallego of Arizona tweeted “When Latino politicos use the term it is largely to appease white rich progressives who think that is the term we use.” Gallego added that his office was not allowed to use the term in any official communications.  

National Review reports:

The same year, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the oldest community organization in the United States, declared it would no longer use Latinx. The term has also been rejected by Real Academia Española, a governing body that oversees the Spanish language.

While the term has been enthusiastically adopted by progressive academics and far-left activists, polling reveals it has not gained traction within the broader Hispanic population.

“The word Latino is incredibly exclusionary, both for women and for non-gender conforming people,” Maia Gil’adi, a professor at Boston University, told the AP. “And the term Latinx is really useful because of the way it challenges those conceptions.”
