      1. Also in particular: illiterate libtards with no understanding of foreign languages, and in particular none of languages like most European ones that have “grammatical gender”. (I don’t know all of them, but all the ones I can think of except for English are in that class — Spanish for sure.)

    1. Exactly my thoughts.

      As a conservative cis-hetero white male, I’m not allowed to see any person and assume their gender, race, sex, or anything about them.

      But liberals see the name “Cervantes” and assume “Hispanic”, and that’s somehow OK. Even with the book being an OLD classic, and Miguel de Cervantes’ cultural background being well-known.

      Maybe he’s an “honorary Hispanic”, the way George Zimmerman is an “honorary white” (despite being in all likelihood darker-skinned than Cervantes was). I mean, if all you had to go on was the name, no context, and were prone to making assumptions….

      Either way, the OP is correct: There is ZERO excuse for this kind of literary error from someone who works in a book store. Even if you’ve never read Don Quixote (I haven’t yet; it’s on my “must read” list), if you’re familiar enough with the phrase “tilting at windmills” to know its origin, you’d know it’s a European setting, and you’d deduce that the titular character probably did not originate from Central or South America when there’s a Spanish-speaking culture right there in Europe.

      Then again, liberals don’t read the classics (because “racism”, or something), which IMHO is, in itself, a serious enough offense to warrant flogging.
