We won’t be the least bit surprised if the Southern Poverty Law Center takes issue with our headline and accuses us of ‘cultural appropriation’, after all, we did DARE to use Spanish words and apparently that’s somehow a bad thing.
Then again, it wouldn’t have been Cinco de Mayo without Lefties shaming Americans for celebrating Mexican culture …
Most of the festivities surrounding #CincodeMayo in the US are textbook examples of cultural appropriation, relegating the history and culture of Mexican people to novelty items. Mexican culture cannot be reduced to tacos, oversized sombreros and piñatas. https://t.co/kffsaJWPUJ

Cinco de Mayo morphed into a celebration of Mexican “heritage” that is painfully falseand largely publicized through alcohol advertising. Most of the festivities surrounding Cinco de Mayo in the United States are textbook examples of cultural appropriation, relegating the vast history and culture of Mexican people to a few novelty items. Mexican culture cannot be reduced to tacos, oversized sombreros and piñatas.
HOW DARE ANYONE HAVE FUN ON CINCO DE MAYO. PUT THE TACOS DOWN RIGHT NOW.
Imagine how uncomfortable life must be for people who have sticks so firmly stuck up their backsides 24/7.
You went from fighting the Klan to fighting any deviation from a narrow and insipid orthodoxy suitable to an Oberlin sophomore.

I'm Mexican and I can't muster anything other than laughter at your embarrassing tweets. Cultural appropriation isn't a thing and you should be ashamed of what you've become.

You take that BACK.
Shut up. You are a hate group & should be treated as such.

Then maybe don’t reduce it to those things? I know this is hard to understand since I’m not making huge donations to you, but you’ve lost the plot.

Ok , then. If anyone ever eats Shepard’s pie I’m really going to be pissed. You are appropriating the plight of the Irish .
