SOME WEEKS AGO, after a report of police brutality in Mexico City, a huge protest of feminists — their name, not mine, la marcha feminista — ended with extensive graffiti and vandalism against the historic monument known as the Angel de la Independencia on the city’s lovely, principal thoroughfare El Paseo de la Reforma.
The leftist government, both federal and municipal, made no effort to stop it. The restoration of the monument, the nation’s most famous, will be staggeringly costly, and some experts doubt that it can be returned to its original condition at all.
Leftist thugs noticed the total lack of government push-back.
Thursday, on the fifth anniversary of another event, vandals, 5,000-strong, again took to the streets to destroy, attacking downtown Mexico City offices, government facilities, private businesses and, of course, public monuments. Again, no repercussions for them.
The cops were busy elsewhere. Maybe coffee and doughnuts.
Our leftist demagogue president who harbors a Messiah delusion held his daily press conference yesterday at 7 a.m. He called the vandalism “excesses,” and rejected the suggestion that anarchists were involved.
Notice the Antifa-like attire in the photo.
The president said the protest had nothing to do with the political left, that it was, in fact, conservatives! The president habitually blames conservatives for all problems. When he’s not blaming conservatives, he’s denying problems exist at all.
It gets worse. The president said:
“Anarchism is productive, purposeful, a movement that is very profound in ideals.”
But he said it in Spanish, of course, because he is monolingual.
The repair estimate for Thursday’s damage has been put at a minimum of 100 million pesos (U.S. $5 million). You know, damage the rampaging “conservatives” caused.
Leftist lunacy in the United States looks contagious. Sad.
