Bolivia, December 2019, three weeks after the fascist coup. It is devilishly cold. My comrade’s car is carefully navigating through the deep mud tracks. Enormous snow-covered mountain peaks are clearly visible in the distance.

The Bolivian Altiplano; beloved, yet always somehow hostile, silent, impenetrable.

So many times, in the past I came close to death here. In Peru as well as in Bolivia. More often in Peru.

Now, what I do is totally mad. Being a supporter of President Evo Morales from the beginning until this very moment, I am not supposed to be here; in Bolivia, in the Altiplano. But I am, because these mud huts on the left and right, are so familiar and so dear to me.

My comrade is a Bolivian farmer, an indigenous man. His hands are red, rough. He usually does not talk much, but after the coup, he cannot stop speaking. This is his country; the country that he loves and which has been stolen from him, from his wife and from his children.

We can both get screwed here, but if we do, that’s life; we know the risk and we are happy to take it.

Carlos (not his real name), my driver and a friend, explained:

“I called them, the elders, and they said it is ok that you come. I sent them your essays. You know, people here now read, even in the deep villages. After 14 years of Evo’s government, the entire country is covered by the mobile phone network. They read your stuff translated into Spanish. They liked what they read. They agreed to give you a statement. But they said, ‘if he is not really a Russian-Chinese left-wing writer, but instead some Camacho crony, we will break his head with a stone.’”

Camacho; Luis Fernando Camacho, a member of the fascist, U.S.-backed Revolutionary Nationalist Movement, and the Chair of the Civic Committee of Santa Cruz since 2019. A major adversary of Evo Morales, a man who during the 2019 Bolivian general election, sided with the West, with the treasonous Bolivian military (trained in the United States), and demanded Evo’s resignation, on 5 November 2019.

I am fine with what they say. We are going.

We drive up, and then, at approximately 4,100 meters above sea level, we level up.

A new, wide road is being constructed. Of course, it is a project from the days of Evo’s presidency.

But it is not only the road building that can be detected all around us. There are water towers and water pumps and faucets in every village. Water is free, for all. There are schools, medical centers as well as sport facilities, and carefully attended fields.

The drive is long, tough. But at one point, we see a few buses and cars parked on the top of a hill.

There is a small plateau, and a giant white speaker sitting in the middle of the field.

People in colorful outfits are scattered all around the site: men, women and children. A group of elders is seated in a closed circle. They are chanting, and their appeal is broadcasted through the speaker. They are addressing what is sacred to them: Mother Earth. They need strength in order to go on, to struggle, to defend themselves.

I am first ‘scanned’ by the people, and only then allowed to approach the elders. I explain who I am, and soon, the formalities are over.

“Please record but do not film our faces, for security,” I am told. “But later, you can film the gathering.”

Soon after, I sit down, and they begin to talk:

“The situation which we are living in these days in our country, in the communities up here, in the Andean communities is very difficult. In reality we feel frustrated, often abandoned because during the previous government led by President Evo Morales, we as farmers and indigenous people, felt very good. Even if, sometimes, we did not receive too much help, still, the government, the very President Evo Morales, is of our own blood, our own class. For that reason, we were supporting him. And we keep supporting him.”

“And this, what we have, now is a government – dictatorship. They say the contrary, but it is a fascist government. It is a government which is burning Wiphala, our symbol. It dishonors us. We feel humiliated, we feel discriminated against. For that reason, we realize that we cannot fail; we cannot stay here like this, we will continue fighting. There will be elections in our country, and we will continue supporting that one person who has elevated our name; the name of the native people, of workers, of working people, and of the poor.”

“First, we will go to the elections, if of course there are elections. We will go and support our people; our leaders. In case that they will produce electoral fraud, then yes, we will rise!”

I told them that I have known their country, and Altiplano, for more than 25 years. Everything has changed. The villages consisting of mud huts came to life. They woke up, began to bloom. Water for all began to run through the pipes provided by the government. Modern ambulances have been deployed, serving all corners of the nation. Health centers opened their doors to millions of students, and so did schools, and vocation centers. New roads have been built. The government encouraged ecological farming.

Bolivia, for decades and centuries living under monstrous apartheid has been exploited, humiliated and robbed of everything, but lately has begun rising to its feet.

I told them this. I told them how I used to come here, again and again, in the 1990’s, from Peru; a country devastated by the so-called “Dirty War” which I have described in my novel “Point of No Return”. Peru was terribly broken, but here, in Bolivia, people were half-alive. There was no hope, only silent, frightening misery.

Now Bolivia, once the poorest country in South America, has been way ahead of Peru, a state which has been relentlessly cannibalized by the neo-liberal economic model, while still racially and socially divided to the extreme.

I asked the elders, whether they agreed. They did.

“Certainly. Because with our own eyes we have seen enormous economic changes and we have witnessed how Bolivia rose and after those 14 years, got ahead of this entire Latin American region.”

I filmed, photographed.

Before we left, an elderly woman approached the car, and screamed something in a local language.

Carlos translated:

“We will all fight those evil beings who declared themselves our rulers. If they don’t disappear, soon again we will close the roads between El Alto and La Paz, and they will have to eat their own excrement. Our people will never again be defeated. Say this wherever you go!”

I said that I will.

 

In 1971, the great Uruguayan writer, journalist and poet, Eduardo Galeano, published his book Open Veins of Latin America, which soon became the most important tome for the Latin American left-wing thinkers and revolutionaries.

ORDER IT NOW

Inside the book, which was regularly banned all over the continent, Galeano had written about those 500 years of monstrous plunder, deceit and cruelty, committed by the Europeans and the North Americans against the people of South and Central America. Some of the most terrible crimes were committed on the territory which is now Bolivia, particularly in the silver mines of the city of Potosi, which helped to make Europe rich, but whose tens of thousands of people died, while forced to live and work as slaves.

Not long before he passed away, I worked with Eduardo Galeano in his café, in the old city of Montevideo.

It was during the heady days of the “Pink Revolutions” wave. We were celebrating our victories, sharing hope for the future.

But at one point, Eduardo paused, and said, simply:

“You know, all of our comrades who are holding power now have to be very careful. They have to understand that the poor people who voted them in, or who supported them when they were taking power, have only one thing left in their life, and that is hope. You take away their hope, and they are left with nothing. Robbing them of hope is like killing them. That is why, whenever I encounter our left-wing leaders, and I do it very often, I always tell them: ‘Comrades, careful, Do not play with hope! Never promise to people what you cannot deliver. Always keep your word.”

Juan Evo Morales Ayma, the first Bolivian indigenous president, understood Galeano and his work perfectly well. He and his Movement for Socialism (MAS), never betrayed the trust of the poor people. That is why he was never forgiven by the West, and by many individuals coming from the treasonous Bolivian elites and the military.

 

After my meeting with the indigenous leaders, I asked Carlos to drive us around Altiplano, without any particular plan. I wanted to talk to people; to the poorest of the poor of Bolivia.

At one point, we arrived at a tiny hamlet. A dog with a broken leg welcomed us with loud but innocuous barking. There were two sheep near the entrance to the house. An elderly farmer, his blind wife and a daughter were working in the field.

They were not afraid to speak, even to be recorded and photographed, as long as I promised not to reveal their names.

The farmer had half of his teeth missing, and he was leaning to one side, but his thoughts and words were clear:

“Thanks to Evo for everything. There is his work, and it speaks for itself; that road, infrastructure. Even this little house that we have is because of him.”

“Here we don’t want that so-called President Añez. She wants to mislead us, she lies to us. We are with MAS; all of us up here are strongly supporting MAS. We are supporting our brother Evo. We have always been suffering here, but Evo came with excellent projects… but now all progress will stop.”

The daughter is perhaps 14 years old. She is a product of Evo’s government. Neatly dressed, with nice glasses, she speaks fluently. Her words are well formulated:

“Those coup leaders have no pity on us. They have been shooting at us, beating us, gassing us. They have been violating our women. Lately, our mothers, our fathers suffered tremendously in La Paz. People were injured, people died, and the military and the coup leaders have no mercy. We don’t want to be slaves, like before. After the coup, the new government said terrible things about our president; things that we don’t like at all. We don’t want to be slaves, nor to be dammed by that new lady-president and by her people. She is a racist. The truth is that she is too racist. They call us ‘Indios’, and say things about us that make us furious. They are discriminating against us in all possible ways.”

“But you don’t lose hope?” I asked.

“I don’t,” she smiled. “I am with MAS. And MAS is going to be victorious. We will defeat those who are behind the coup.”

We left, heading towards the main road.

“One more stop,” I asked Carlos.

We drove, randomly, towards a partially damaged dwelling.

“What happened here?” I asked.

The family members spoke over each other:

“In November, Camacho sent here several buses full of his supporters, from Potosi. They arrived, and began beating us up, insulting us, killing our animals and destroying our houses. They forced us to our knees, tying our hands behind our backs. They called us the most insulting names. They humiliated us. They said that it is over, that now we will know again where we belong.”

I asked Carlos whether he had heard these stories before. He replied, without thinking:

“Of course. You can ask anyone up here, and they will confirm what you just heard.”

Before descending to La Paz, in El Alto, I asked Carlos to stop at several places, where in November, dozens of people died, blocking the capital as the protest against the coup, and against forcing Evo Morales into exile.

The bullet holes that damaged the walls were still visible, and they were clearly marked. There were flowers there, where people had fallen. Soon, hopefully very soon, there will be monuments.

The graffiti all over El Alto, spoke clearly and loudly:

“Añez, we will fish you off – you coup-maker!”, “Añez – dictator!” and “Añez – killer!”.

 

Just half a year ago, I witnessed great fiestas in El Alto. I filmed colorful processions, people dancing, fireworks. I admired the new public spaces, super-modern cable cars, public swimming pools as well as the playgrounds constructed for children.

Now, the city felt like a cemetery. It was eerie, silent, gloomy.

The enormous Mount Illimani, the symbol of this ancient land, was covered by snow. It was beautiful now, but it is always stunning, in good times as well as during the disasters. La Paz, sitting in a tremendous crater, was clearly visible from above.

“The Yankees coming,” said Carlos. “You know, Añez has restored full diplomatic ties with Washington. And their spies and agents are flooding the embassy; all in civilian clothes, of course…”

“With their backs covered by the treasonous Bolivian military,” I uttered, sarcastically.

Carlos was quiet for some time. Then he decided to speak:

“When I was young, I was in the military myself. In Cochabamba, you know, during the water crises, and popular rebellion aimed at making water free. I never told you. Those were tough times. People stood up, and some died. Our unit consisted of mainly indigenous soldiers. The officers were white; almost all were. At one point, we let them know that we would not fire at our brothers and sisters. They shat their pants: captains, colonels; you should have seen them: they were running around, in barracks and outside, with no marks of their ranks. You know, at one point, if they were to have forced us to slaughter our people, we would have refused, and slaughtered them, instead.”

“They were trained in the West?” I asked.

“Many, yes.”

“And now Carlos? What about now?”

He began whispering, although no one seemed to be around:

“I have two relatives in the army. I talked to one of them, a few days ago. It is the same as when I was serving in Cochabamba. The upper ranks are with the Yanquis, but the troops, most of them, are with MAS; they are with Evo. You see, if there is a mutiny, and there very well may be one, soon, then Añez, Camacho and their gringo friends will all soon be fucked!”

 

I went to the luxury hotel Suites Camino Real in La Paz, for lunch. I had to see “them”, the other side. Those who import exquisite beef from Santa Cruz province, those who consume it here, those who are now celebrating.

And celebrating they were.

Several parties were taking place, simultaneously. People were jumping around, hugging each other, shouting like mad. All white, all “tall and beautiful”, all blonde, peroxide or real. Wine was flowing.

Most of the waiters were indigenous, dressed in Western clothes; hushed and uncertain.

I met a former top economist in Evo’s government, Ernesto Yañez, who at one point served as the vice-President of the Central Bank of Bolivia. It was safe to meet here. We found a quite corner where we could talk:

“I certainly call what happened here, a coup. There was no election fraud.”

“Without any doubt, Evo’s years in power were marked by great economic stability. Especially in the beginning, there were almost no economic problems. The poverty rate decreased from 55% to below 30%. Quality of life increased dramatically.”

“In relatively poor Bolivia, poverty rates are lower than in the richest country on the continent, Argentina, after the reign of the neo-liberal President Macri”, I could not help but mention.

“Yes, but after the coup, the economy here is collapsing,” Ernesto Yañez said.

ORDER IT NOW

Half a year ago, I was here, and there were violent strikes by doctors all over Bolivia. Many of them were educated for free, by the state, but after that, they were demanding a neo-liberal medical system, in which doctors and nurses would gain unrealistically high salaries. Many Cuban doctors have been deployed by the government, all over the country, in order to improve medical care.

Ernesto Yañez further clarified:

“During Evo’s government, millions of people moved from lower to middle class. Most of them were young. Which means, before the coup, and after 14 years of MAS rule, many young middle-class people had no idea what it is to live in misery. They took all the achievements of Evo and MAS for granted. Then, when certain hardships arrived, including the slowing down of the economy after 2014, they saw them as the failures of Evo’s government.”

“You know, for instance the doctors that you mentioned; they thought that if they brought down MAS, all their requests would be immediately fulfilled by the right-wing government. It never happened. Now they have no idea what to do.”

“The same as in Santa Cruz,” I agreed with him. “Fuel and utility prices are going up. Now the right-wingers will realize what it is to have their dream come true – a neo-liberal regime. They are getting wiped-out; desperate.”

Ernesto Yañez concluded:

“You, know, Evo made many Bolivian businessmen rich, too. The country and its economy were very stable, for years. Before he came to power, the big players were North Americans, Europeans and Chileans. During his mandate, Bolivian companies were given priority. Bolivian elites were always racist, for them, Evo was ‘un Indio mas’ (just another Indian). But they hid their feelings well. It is because Evo did things well. He changed this country for the better, almost for everybody.”

“But now, things have gone from bad to worse. The new president comes with the bible and cross, burns Wiphala, and people die. Now the Indigenous people want Evo back.”

And not only indigenous people, although almost all indigenous people that I met this time in Bolivia, do.

 

I walked to Plaza Murillo in La Paz, where the Presidential Palace and the National Congress of Bolivia are located.

The police and military were everywhere. During Evo’s government, this was a quiet, open space, full of green trees, children and pigeons.

In front of the National Congress, several ladies dressed in beautiful indigenous clothes, were gathering, talking to each other. These were deputies from MAS.

I pulled out my cameras and approached them. Immediately, security dudes in plainclothes, began approaching me, but the two lady-deputies made protective gestures with their arms, smiled at me, and rebuffed the security officers: “Leave him alone, he is with us.”

I knew we had no time, and I asked only one thing: “Are we standing, comrades?”

They did not hesitate:

“We are standing. They will not defeat us. MAS is the legitimate government of Bolivia.”

And so, this is what I am reporting from the Plurinational Republic of Bolivia:

The country is under attack from the United States and its allies. It has been injured by its treasonous cadres, both military and civilian. Blood has been spilled. The legitimate president and vice-president are in exile. According to Reuters, “Bolivian minister seeks Israel help in fighting alleged leftist ‘terrorism‘”. Meaning, the legitimate government.

But the country is standing. People are not on their knees. First there will be a vote, but if there are any tricks from Washington or from the Organization of American States (OAS), there will be a fight.

Evo Morales and MAS won the recent elections. There is absolutely no way that MAS will not win again. I spoke to people, and now, even more than before, they are closing ranks around the Movement towards Socialism which made Bolivia one of the greatest nations in the Western Hemisphere.

The indigenous people of Bolivia and the rest of South America are not beggars or slaves. Long before the arrival of those brutal religious fundamentalists and badly brought-up looters – the Spanish conquerors – they were the owners of this beautiful land. Their civilization was much greater than that of their tormentors.

Evo’s government did much more than just improving the social situation in his country. He began reversing 500 years of cruel injustice on this continent. He gave power to the powerless. He returned pride to the people who had been robbed of everything.

Washington shows clearly where it stands. Despite its hypocritical “political correctness”, it is on the side of racism, colonialism and fascist oppression. Instead of defending freedom, it oppresses freedom. Instead of promoting democracy (which is “rule of the people”), it is raping democracy: here in Bolivia, and elsewhere.

Until Bolivia is free again, the entire freedom-loving world should be waving the Wiphala.

The elders from the Altiplano sent a clear message to the world. Elections will take place, but if the people are robbed of their government, there will be an uprising and an epic battle.

Sadly, if there is a battle, some people will join the Earth. But also, the Earth will not stay idle – it will join her People.

Añez together with her colonialist symbols, is already being cursed by the majority of Bolivian people, and so are Camacho and several other traitors. But perhaps, technically, they are not “traitors”, after all. Their allegiances are to those nations which had attacked and have been looting this part of the world, for several long centuries.

After 500 years of being tormented and humiliated, the mother Earth, Pachamama, is embracing her children. Evo and MAS brought them together. This is a tremendous moment in history. People here realize it. European, racist elites realize it. Washington is well aware of it.

Right now, there is a moment of silence; a brief one.

If the fascist coup leaders do not back up, there will be huge thunder, and the people of Altiplano will rise, Wiphala in hand, supported by their ancient, sacred Earth.

  2. Your entire article is propaganda. It has very little information value.

    Brazil’s economy has variously been in recession and semi-recession for the last 5 years or so. Yet, Bolivians just will not stop pouring in here to work under degrading conditions, mainly in São Paulo. Some of them work in the streets. They cannot open bank accounts, and must store their money at home, becoming easy targets for thieves. More than once we have heard of police raids on sweat shops for big brands where Bolivian women work as semi-slave seamstresses. Most of these people will not come back to Bolivia no matter what. Are there any Brazilians making the inverse route? Not at any significant numbers. And yet Bolivia is that “miracle of growth”, “millions coming out of misery”, etc, etc. Tell me another one.

    Doesn’t Evo Morales have a party? Doesn’t his party have other people besides Evo Morales? Aren’t the elections coming soon? Can’t Evo Morales’s party run with another candidate? : Yes, yes, yes, and yes again.

    I cannot for the life of me understand what the big deal is here. Does Evo Morales have the monopoly on wisdom? Are you proposing a return to absolute monarchy? Or are these people whom Evo Morales have “taken out of poverty” — and who idolize him — so ignorant and gullible that they will be deceived into voting for his opponents?

  3. @Brás Cubas

    I remember Brazil having the strongest economy in South America, it was supposed to keep growing and bring prosperity to the people. They had discovered one of the largest oil deposits in South America, and because Brazil uses bio-fuels to run their transportation, the new oil deposits were seen as export material to bring in more money. What happened to all that wealth Bras Cubas? Tell us all why Odebrect has been involved in so many countries ripping off and paying bribes for construction contracts? Why is Bolsonato selling off the country’s state owned companies?

    If you are part of the “Rich” Brazilian elite, things are going very well for you and your comment is taken for what it is, a minority point of view, from someone living in a country where the majority are poor.

    I suggest you worry about the Israeli, U.S. and European corporations that are coming to take whatever resources Bolsonato has not given away yet. I heard that Trump just gave him a wake-up call in the form of tariffs, for his meeting with China! Once you start dealing with the U.S. you better buy a lot of Vaseline Bras Cubas, because your going to find yourself bending over a whole lot of times.

    It’s too bad that the people of Brazil will have to pay the price, now that Bolsonato chose the West to align himself with, instead of the BRICS. I think he is too stupid to see that every country that has been an ally of the U.S. is now tired of being told how to conduct business and with who. Perfect example is what is going on with Germany, France and other European countries forced to follow U.S. sanctions on other countries.

    Argentina is a place you should study and get familiar with because the neo-liberal government you have in power plans to do the same thing with Brazil. “Wake up man, stop supporting the people that want to take your stuff and leave you in debt, and support the people from your country”. “We will have a United Latin America, or die trying”, with Mexico leading the way”! “Fuck the Zionist controlled U.S. Government (not the people) and it’s Master…Israel!

    Evo Morales will be back because Indigenous Bolivia (majority) want him back, and the criminals (minority) will go to jail. Mexico is taking back it’s resources and you people are giving yours away, that’s a stupid move!

At least Andre is out there trying to report what is going on in the world, while you just wait on the next article, so you can comment what you think! And, sir that isn’t much!

    Go back and watch, your Fox News and stop embarrassing the other commentators from your country! Your ignorance and your support of puppet fascist governments is not something Andre is wanting as a response.

  5. Andre,

    Great Article, Andre! Keep up the good work, things are changing in Latin America! The U.S. had a choice in the the region and they chose to control, rape and steal their way throughout the 200 years of U.S. dominance in the American continent. Not one Latin American country has benefited by the U.S. government’s foreign interventions in their country. The American Continent could have been the strongest and richest region in the world, if allowed to be a partner and not a slave of the U.S. You can only kick a dog so many times, before he turns on you! I think Russia should offer humanitarian support and bring their military advisors into the South American countries that are under assault.

    I’m more than positive that the people that are struggling with the neo-liberal U.S. sponsored puppet governments will welcome their visit.

    Take care, my brother and be safe!

  8. Socialism works. And the “cult of personality,” a meme created by you propagandized bastards to peripheralize socialism.

    Socialism gave them roads, houses, schools, communication, healthcare.

    Your shithole capitalism gives them nothing.

    Simple facts. Inarguable. Now watch one of you dodoes argue against facts.

  14. Indigenous Bolivia Ready to Go to War Against Fascism

    Really? I thought they were opposed to the Zionist bankers, who the fascists also opposed.
    It’s not my preference as a political philosophy, but if people understood what the fascists did, my guess is that there would be a lot of support for it. It’s a myth that the corporations loved fascism. Fascists actually improved working conditions and held corporations accountable.
    Do you think that Ezra Pound was declared insane and locked up because he was harmless?

  16. Look, it was a coup, but Morales made a critical error in NOT developing a leader to replace him. Instead, he tried a Chavez and just wanted to extend his Presidency for term after term. This opened him to unrest in the elites and the military.

    It made him seem like a tyrant who would never leave power.

    All of these countries have had trouble with this: Chavez in Venezuela, Castro in Cuba, What’s his name in Honduras, Kirschner in Argentina as well as Morales in Bolivia. And Lula didn’t cultivate a strong replacement (Duma(?) was weak). And Correo in Ecuador was tricked into thinking he had a replacement to carry on, but was betrayed.

    Look you guys. What will it take for you to learn? You have to have leaders that are like you and strong in the values that the people elected you for. You can’t just try to extend your rule.

    Evo brought this on himself.

  17. @Thorfinnsson

    the real mystery is why your ancestors thought these, uh…handsome women…to be suitable wives for repopulating the lands they conquered

    My ancestors came from Spain, we were given “Land Grants” and my family is of European stock, not by choice, but by birth! Last time I checked my DNA I found out that I’m 89% W Euro, 6% E Euro, 3% N Afr, 2% Amer Ind, so we pretty much stayed with our group because Northern Mexico and Texas had very little Indigenous populations. I don’t know what you mean by i suppose meds can’t control themselves?

    My family is very big and very diverse (Ranchers, Doctors, Lawyers, Dentists, etc.) and I have never heard them feel or express any type of racial superiority towards another group. Don’t get me wrong Mexico is full of racist, upper-class Mexicans that would rather side with the U.S. (because to them being white is better than being Mexican) than support their own people.

    But, I’m a different “Animal” buddy, raised and educated in the U.S. allowed me to see what it’s like to be a minority ( J.A. Gutierrez, Garcia) can’t pass as American, and we all know how you people feel about those “Dirty Mexicans”, don’t we! And I feel it was “good” for me, otherwise if I was raised and educated here (Where I’m at the top of the food chain), I might have turned out to be a piece of shit, just like you!

    You can’t even get close to me, Socially, Morally or Conversationally! Go and make yourelf useful and shovel the fucking snow, while I sip on this shot of tequila!

    Great comment J…glad to see you kicking ass and taking names…that’s the way to do it…

    How are you doing FB? I haven’t had a chance to share with you brother! I’m glad you read my stuff and liked it! I read your comments all the time, but because most of the time they are highly technical, I can’t respond! You are definitely the “Aerospace” guy, you should look towards Mexico because I think they might need good people in their growing Aerospace Industry. You’re in Canada, if I remember correctly, right? Keep in touch brother, I don’t know if you have read my other comments on the changes being made in Mexico with our new president AMLO. We, got the “Largest” deposit of Lithium in the world brother, discovered huge amounts of oil, building a new airport, two or three new high speed trains, construction of an option to the Panama Canal and!bunch of other projects!

    Thank you, 2stateshmustate for your kind support! There are more of us than there are of them! and we will win because we are “Good” motherfuckers!

    From beautiful Mexico with love…JG

    Just laughing at the hypocrisy, then again, that it is missed by most kikes.

    Smith, coming from a country where your presidents are selected not elected, while pushing Democratic elections in another country where they do the same thing…is hypocrisy at its finest, and it is not missed by the people watching the events unfold, just by you kike lovers!

    And no, Andre is there to start shit, not to report shit. His opinion was made before the plane is even landed.

    How the fuck is Andre going to start shit, with a camera? The CIA, DEA and other US thugs just landed and will make sure things stay the way they are, now. A porn star as president and a racist rich guy asking for US support (more money and weapons), while the IMF writes blank checks and US corporations masturbate at the thought of buying the State Owned companies for pennies on the dead dollar!

    Tell me something “real” Smith, not just bullshit sheeple noise, Baah…Baah…Baah

    Perhaps after a few more sips of tequila your ranch hands will look sufficiently attractive for you to be as amorous as your conquistador ancestors?

    I did shovel snow as a teenager for pocket money, but now I have a service. I did, however, enjoy fresh powder on the slopes today.

    Racial hierarchy is simply a fact, no matter how much the self-loathing Vltchek or you pretend otherwise. This is amply demonstrated by the subject of this article–the “white” minority of Bolivia has easily overthrown the Indios’ champion. The same can be seen throughout the whole of Latin America for the past five centuries.

    To get serious for a second, no, the fact of hierarchy should not be a license to abuse. But noblesse oblige is a rare quality, especially these days.

    ¡Salud!

    Oh OK Indio. No matter how much you and your pal Andre squeal, your shit is already done, Russia and China have already backed off, now you indio can cry yourself to sleep while Evo Morales eats Taco in Mexico and Andre takes more pictures of it to show on Unz.

    Oooh…you scared me! Don’t you realize where I live? Do you not watch the news? Dude I grew up in Chicago during 70’s, 80’s where the white gangs didn’t like spics. I’m typing to you because I knew how to handle myself at 15. I’m a fucking welder, riding a Street Glide in Mexico enjoying life, I see armed people in pickups all day long…where do you live, Mayberry? LOL

    You can pretend to be whatever want, Chief, believe whatever you want, Chief, it doesn’t impress me, you’re just another Andy Griffin to me!

    Russia and China are keeping an eye on you guys, they are not going to let you just gangster all the resources and cut them out. They know you guys are starting shit in Mexico…The Sinaloa event and the Lebaron murders. The US knows the Northern states are the richest in minerals, we have the largest Lithium deposits in the World! We know you want it, and so does China and Russia.

    Every Mexican will be eating steak when we start processing those sites. And you will be eating boiled hot dogs!

    Make yourself a mayonnaise sandwich and pop a Natural Light beer and forget about saying more bullshit.

    Sorry Thorefi, I don’t partake in sausage eating contests, I remember reading somewhere here… that you are the champion sausage eater on this site!

    This is amply demonstrated by the subject of this article–the “white” minority of Bolivia has easily overthrown the Indios’ champion.

    I think you underestimate the power of the internet, and peoples willingness to die for what is theirs. Russia knows all they need is some arms smuggled in from Argentina, oh shit what is Evo doing in Argentina? Dah! Yeah the sentence should read: This is amply demonstrated by the subject of this article–the “white” minority of Bolivia has easily overthrown the unarmed majority Indios’ .

    The Military soldiers are 90% indigenous, they will turn on the criminal government, but they just need the people to start it, once they start its all over buddy. Evo gave everyone cell phones and wi-fi, instant communication. To get serious for a second, the fact people are rising up all over Latin America Colombia, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, etc. tells me people are not believing the Neo-liberal policies being shoved down their throats. US power is getting “Checked” now, you better hope your government doesn’t do something that will directly effect all it’s citizens! Oh, shit I keep forgetting they don’t give a shit about you or anyone else in the US. FEMA camps, plastic coffins stacked in fields, they just love you guys, and you people cling on them, like found puppies!

    Grow some balls and fucking say something, protest, anything! The world is looking at you wondering, “fuck how much more can they take”, before they do something! You gotta stop the US War Machine, before you are the ones being bombed, I say that because I have a lot of family there.

    That’s all I have to say on this subject!

    This appears to be the cycle of life in Latin America.

    And, really, outside of Latin America as well–just lacking the equivalent racial hierarchy unique to the region. But now such hierarchies are being reproduced throughout the “modern” world.

    •Elite enriches itself and immiserates the population (or at least makes the gulf so large that it leads to overproduction of elite aspirants–see Peter Turchin)

    •”Popular” movements arise in response to immiseration, and occasionally take power (sometimes with the help of ambitious defecting elites)

    • Elite eventually claws back power

    Rinse and repeat.

    Oh, shit I keep forgetting they don’t give a shit about you or anyone else in the US. FEMA camps, plastic coffins stacked in fields, they just love you guys, and you people cling on them, like found puppies!

    That’s all I have to say on this subject!

    This is the public internet, so I can’t describe my own activities against the US war machine. I can say that I voted for Trump in part because of his foreign policy stance. As with his other stances, there has been modest but insufficient progress. No new wars I suppose is an achievement of sorts compared to his immediate predecessors.

    Suffice to say the US is increasingly unstable and headed for a very bad place. Actually, in many respect it’s already in a very bad place, but people haven’t noticed because it seems somehow “normal”. The family structure has collapsed for the lower classes, the demographic situation has drastically deteriorated (and I speak not just of immigration), there is an epidemic of drug abuse, the physical and mental health of the population is in very bad shape, and there’s quite a lot of “sausage eating” going on now even around children.

    One good development I suppose is that now it’s a lot easier for people to find a job, which wasn’t the case a decade ago or even five years ago. Where I live people are now hiring people with criminal records, recovering drug addicts, teenagers without job experience, etc. We’ll see how long that lasts.

    OK indio.

    Is that all you got! OK Indio…

    It’s weird that you have these spics (or more accurate indio) that proclaim their hatred against white people, yet they sit their ass in white country.

    I don’t hate “white people”! I’m white European, but I’m Mexican first, and there is no such thing in America called white country. You are a very ignorant man, sir. You type words that make no sense, and you keep your responses short, racist and lack a true response. In other words your are “Stupid”

    It’s not looking good for you, I tell you. Squeal louder so the butcher can come for you.

    This sentence proves what I just said about you! It has no meaning, you might have just written “Have a nice day”. “Squeal Loader”? I think you have me confused with, Ned Beatty (a white guy) being bent over a log, pounded by a Hillbilly (another white guy) in your version of white country! I’m sure you had that scene fresh in your mind, you can’t get it out of your mind can you, Smith? You like it don’t you? Yes you are a closet Sausage Eater aren’t you?

    Thank you for your very entertaining responses. we here at the University of Monterrey have a big screen and a class on the supremacy of the white race. The students can’t stop laughing!

    Have a nice day, Smith…oh they thought your name was very appropriate, too…LOL

    This appears to be the cycle of life in Latin America.

    Yes it’s called the U.S. intervention cycle, CIA operations within those countries are causes.

    Elite enriches itself and immiserates the population (or at least makes the gulf so large that it leads to overproduction of elite aspirants.

    Why do you think Americans allow the elite to operate that same way in the US? And mind you, with no foreign intervention as is the case with Latin American countries.

    This is the public internet, so I can’t describe my own activities against the US war machine.

    At least you are doing something positive, now just work on how you see the less fortunate original inhabitants of North America and you might turn out to be a decent person. Commentator “Smith” has no cure, because you can’t fix stupidity!

    I can say that I voted for Trump in part because of his foreign policy stance. As with his other stances, there has been modest but insufficient progress. No new wars I suppose is an achievement of sorts compared to his immediate predecessors.

    I agree 100% with your statement and can add that he has been doing a good job working with the new Mexican President. If he can continue the no new wars strategies I will be very happy, because I feel TPTB want more wars and I live in Mexico. Like Poririo Daiz once said: “Poor Mexico, so far from God, and so close to the United States”.

    One good development I suppose is that now it’s a lot easier for people to find a job, which wasn’t the case a decade ago or even five years ago. Where I live people are now hiring people with criminal records, recovering drug addicts, teenagers without job experience, etc. We’ll see how long that lasts.

    That is good news, and that type of employment success can be achieved in Latin America, relieving the illegal immigration situation faced in the US. But, the US will have to end it’s support to the corrupt governments in those countries. Bolivia is a perfect example, a country doing well, getting out of debt and the largest GDP in Latin America, is now in shambles and being ripped off once again. And you and I know the Black Hand of the US is stirring that pot.

    I appreciate you responding in a positive, intelligent manner, and truly wish you success in changing the way you stereotype people! It’s not a good way of seeing things and only allows you to justify the harm forced on those people because they are looked at as not deserving or incapable of appreciating the wealth and resources they posses.

  28. @2stateshmustate

    I agree with you brother, but those people have been treated like shit long enough. What no one talks about is the RIO Treaty, brother.

    RIO TREATY

    A treaty signed September 2, 1947, which provides that an armed attack against any American State shall be considered as an attack against all the American States and each one undertakes to assist in meeting the attack.

    PARTIES: United States, Argentina, Bahamas, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Trinidad & Tobago, Uruguay, Venezuela.

    Notice how Mexico is not part of this treaty?

    Where was this treaty when the United Kingdom attacked Argentina? When the US attacked Panama? When the US is threatening Venezuela? Anything signed by the US government is worthless, you might as well wipe your ass with it and at least get some use.

    The US is truly a criminal, drug dealing, shit hole country, where it’s people live a fantasy that they are good, law abiding people, that fight for truth and justice. Nothing can be further from the truth!

    Great to hear from you J…your big heart always comes out strong in your messages here…

    Of course I stand with my man AMLO…who likewise stands with Brother Evo…

    Mexico and all of America south of the Rio Grande is wonderful country, and great humanity…sooner or later the Gringos and their rotten comprador elites will be kicked out for good, and everyone will be able to breather freedom…

    Take care my friend…I will leave you with this…an old-time favorite…

    Like Trump assumes he should be at the top of the American food chain, but is in fact a slave of the Zionists. If he doesn’t convert to Judaism first, his Anglo people are heading towards minority status (media defined white trash). Thorfinnsson may regard himself as a racially superior Ubermensch but the Germans and Scandinavians are surely going the same way.

    The people portrayed in the picture are obviously retarded. Not their fault, and not just genetic: rural people all through America Latina have serious cognitive impairment due to malnutrition and no real intellectual stimulation. Don’t expect them to have enlightened opinions about the optimal political system.
