The resolution that has kept our Southern border from being completely inundated with illegal aliens is about to expire. And the illegals will swarm across our border like a swarm of locusts and the Biden regime, for all its big talk about the border not being open, along with all the other lies they have told, will look the other way and do nothing about it, all the while continuing to tell us they have the situation under control. Anyone believing them has to believe in the tooth fairy as well.
Much if Mexico’s recent past has been a testimony to leftist perseverance, contrary to what some “news” sources have told us. The Mexican Communist Party was founded in 1917 as the Socialist Worker’s Party. It changed its name to the Mexican Communist Party in 1919. It was outlawed in 1925, but managed to regain its legal status in 1935. In 1924 Mexico was the first country in the Western Hemisphere to establish diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union. The New York Times informed us (however much you can believe them) that the U.S. government confused Mexican nationalism with communism. Don’t kid yourself!
During the Cold War, in Mexico, the International Revolutionary Party (P.R.I.) claimed it was a “nationalist and progressive” alternative to communism. Again, don’t kid yourselves. A N Y Times article told us “Frieda Kahlo, when she died in 1954, received the first official homage ever accorded to an artist in Mexico’s Palace of Fine Arts. Her coffin was covered with a banner of the hammer and sickle. This was emblematic of a resurgence of Communism in Mexico, not steming from parties and unions–but from artistic, academic, and literary circles, where Marxism had begun to gain renewed vigor…” But, then, these intellectual types always seem to be among those who see something positive in communism, – as long as they don’t have to live under its iron fist.
When the Cuban Revolution began, Mexico’s PRI party didn’t condemn Fidel Castro and it abstained from an Organization of American States (OAS) vote to expel Cuba. There was definitely compromise ere. The expedition led by Castro in 1956 had set sail from Mexico, and Mexico then defended Cuba via diplomatic measures… Then, in the 1970s and 80s, all varieties of Marxism had become “a common language” in public universities in Mexico. Almost sounds like our colleges and universities in this country. They were definitely leaning far left at that time–and today they are so far left some people are falling off the edge!
Lopez Obrador would become the populist Caudillo of the Mexican left. He ran for president in 2006 and came within a fraction of a percent of winning, so naturally, he accused the government of election fraud. The New York Times claimed the Mexican Revolution had “absorbed and transformed (and sidelined) the Russian revolution.” Actually what happened is that the Russian Revolution had taken on a more Mexican flavor that previously.
Blair Coan, in his book, The Red Web written in 1925, noted that “Mexico is today, was yesterday, and will be tomorrow, the most fertile incubator of Bolshevik revolution on the American continent.”
And while many changes have occurred since he wrote his book, I think has basic premise is right on the money.
