CARLES PUIGDEMONT AND CATALONIA’S “INDEPENDENCE”– a Dangerous Fool’s Errand

NO ONE IS INTERESTED: CARLES PUIGDEMONT, PRESIDENT OF THE AUTONOMOUS (REGIONAL) GOVERNMENT OF CATALONIA
Puigdemont and his rogue team of separatists 

Carles Puigdemont, as the President of the Government of Catalonia (Catalan: Generalitat de Catalunya), an autonomous regional government, should be held legally accountable– along with his rogue team of separatist politicians– for endangering the lives of thousands of people who took to the streets to protest and vote on an illegal referendum for the “independence” of Catalonia. This illegal referendum ignored the anti-independence wishes of over half the population in that region– a perfect example of socialist “democracy” by “consensus”– which means that a minority decides what’s good for the majority of us!

But let’s go back to the protests…

These “independence” protests, which on the surface appear to be spontaneous– are far from it.

These socialist-style “peaceful” protests are always orchestrated to challenge authority, while taking advantage of liberal media coverage, knowing full well that the mainstream media always paints law enforcement in a bad light. This manipulation of people’s emotions may work well for the socialist and or naive viewer– but it is an insult to the intelligence of millions of people who cannot be fooled, and who respect the rule of law.

Fortunately, hundreds of thousands of Catalans against illegal “independence” took to the streets on Sunday to show enormous support for law enforcement officers sent by the federal government in Madrid, and marched proudly– as they wrapped themselves in the flag of Spain.

Puigdemont should also be held legally responsible for the thousands of jobs lost across Catalonia, as corporation after corporation left the region, in order to avoid the political and economic nightmare created by the separatists. Frankly, I don’t know if these corporations will ever or should come back, with Puigdemont and his ilk in charge!

Catalonia

Catalonia is a region in Spain which enjoys an autonomy never seen before in the Spanish territory. During the last 40 years Catalans have enjoyed incredible freedom and benefits under a Spanish constitution– which the people of Catalonia overwhelmingly approved. So, this business of “independence” is simply a socialist-separatist ploy to advance a “social justice” agenda, which has little to do with language and culture. And if you don’t know the danger of a “social justice” agenda– all you need to do is look at the poster child of “social justice”– Cuba!

Which leads me to the next point…

Don’t you find it interesting (and revolting) that while Puigdemont and his rogue team of social justice warriors claim “freedom, justice and independence” for Catalonia– they are HUGE supporters of the Communist brutal dictatorship in Cuba?

Puigdemont’s speech on October 10: “An exercise in cynicism”

Puigdemont’s speech today before the Catalan (Regional) Parliament was not just an embarrassment– it was a string of empty words and lies to the people of Catalonia and to the people of Spain– and to anybody else who wasted their time watching and listening to him, including this writer. In the words of Ignasi Guardans, a Catalan lawyer and former MEP, Puigdemont’s speech was an “exercise in cynicism.”

Puigdemont, who declared today that Catalonia is “independent” (but in a back-burner-sort-of-way)– also wants to “dialogue.” There’s only one problem: there’s no one to dialogue with– because no one is interested.

So, it’s time for the Spanish government to apply Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, before the rogue “government” of Catalonia destroys the region, by continuing to put its citizens in harms way— along with their political and economic institutions.

Someone has to say the truth…

Hello readers from Spain!

Thanks for visiting!  Drop me a line through my contact form to share your views on the Islamic terrorism that is so deeply affecting Europe, as well as the geopolitical and economic situation under Prime Minister Rajoy’s government, in the framework presented below:

Given Catalonia’s ongoing separatist campaigns (greatly supported by socialist-separatists and even Islamists in that region) I am particularly interested in hearing  your opinion, and that of people in your neighborhood / community, on whether Madrid should invoke article 155 of the constitution and retaliate economically against Catalonia (including freezing the Liquidity Fund) in order to suspend Catalonia’s regional autonomy– should it continue to pursue separation from Spain.

By 2012, Barcelona, as the capital of Catalonia, was home to 11 mosques and 30 official Islamic centers and religious organizations, which were registered with the Justice Ministry of Spain and the Office of Religious Affairs of the Barcelona Town Council. The Islamic presence and political influence has continued to increase in Catalonia, particularly because separatists seek Islamic support of their separatist movement– in spite of the Islamic terrorist cells operating inside Spain, as covered in the New York Times article published today, titled “How a Secretive Branch of ISIS Built a Global Network of Killers”  (excerpt follows, bold added for emphasis):

Based on the accounts of operatives arrested so far, the Emni has become the crucial cog in the group’s terrorism machinery, and its trainees led the Paris attacks and built the suitcase bombs used in a Brussels airport terminal and subway station. Investigation records show that its foot soldiers have also been sent to Austria, Germany, Spain, Lebanon, Tunisia, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Do you feel that Spain’s government is doing a good job at preventing terrorism– considering the lack of cooperation from socialist groups like the Catalonian separatists, who for the most part have embraced the Islamization of their region?

Also, do you support the abolishment of same-sex marriage? Do you and your circle of friends, colleagues and neighbors feel that same-sex marriage was rammed down the throats of Spaniards– who for the most part still reject it?

How engaged are the people in your neighborhood, community or church against abortion? Abortion is an ongoing scandal and a crisis in Spain, considering that Spain is one of the ten most Catholic countries in the world, having converted millions to Christianity, particularly after its discovery of the New World. The abortion crisis in Spain was again painfully portrayed with the recent arrest and sentencing of Dr. Carlos Morin, who runs a house of horrors in Barcelona, where he has performed countless late-term abortions. The question is, how many more like Dr. Morin are conducting this massacre throughout Spain? How has your community reacted to the news of Dr. Morin?

Spain’s reality under the EU has been an economic and moral disaster. Given the EU’s socialist penchant for “consensus” (a code word for ignoring the will of the people)– do you feel that most Spaniards would prefer to leave the EU and follow the British example?

You may add any other comments about Spain’s reality. Thank you.
