For Puerto Ricans who support self-determination, it is truly mind-blowing that some Democrats have the audacity to offer statehood as a solution on the question of Puerto Rico’s political status. At a time when Congress cannot come to grips with its responsibility to decolonize Puerto Rico – let alone guarantee a process of negotiation – support for statehood becomes suspicious at best, seeming way too much like political opportunism. The disconnect between the Puerto Rican reality and pro-statehood declarations is dismaying.
Ill-informed support for statehood is based on several myths:
Puerto Ricans are Americans: False. The Puerto Rican national identity remains an ethnic identification of peoples without a national citizenship of their own who live in a territory they call “their country.” This does not obscure the reality that Puerto Rico constitutes a nation, which has had a colonial relation with the United States since 1898. Ambiguities were created by Public Law 600and by the portrayal in 1953 at the United Nations of the Commonwealth as “a compact” between both nations. As the Harvard Law Review clearly stated in 2017: “Puerto Rico’s heart is not American. It is Puerto Rican.”
Puerto Ricans in the U.S. have struggled for civil rights, but the political, societal and constitutional reality of Puerto Rico is altogether another issue. You cannot erase a nationhood by overlooking its existence and assume that “Puerto Ricans are Americans.” Such statements constitute a classic strategy of assimilation that negates Puerto Rico’s right to exist.
Most Puerto Ricans support statehood: False. Puerto Ricans have rejected statehood in five plebiscites held since 1968. The 2017 plebiscite was boycotted by all anti-statehood Puerto Rican parties, resulting in statehood receiving 97 percent support, with only 23 percent of registered voters’ participation. The 2012 plebiscite, so far the only one held the same day as local elections, was boycotted by one of the major political parties, resulting in an avalanche of blank votes, pro-independence and pro-Free Association, which outnumbered pro-statehood votes. Statehood persistently has lost support since the 1993 plebiscite (788,296 votes in 1993; 728,157 votes in 1998; 834,191 in 2012, and 502,801 in 2017).
While in power, pro-statehood administrations have corrupted the Puerto Rican government to the point of its collapse, making this faction incapable of leading any future political project. In summer 2019, the pro-statehood governor Ricardo Rossello was ousted.
Civil rights in the U.S. are not being addressed by making Puerto Rico a state. As an unincorporated territory, Puerto Rico has a different constitutional reality, and its urgency is not related to civil rights but rather to our human right to decolonization. Since 1998, the only political option gaining support is Free Association, a negotiated compact in which both countries become freely associated.
Puerto Rico is not a country: False. The Foraker Act, the first law passed in Congress concerning Puerto Rico, stated that Puerto Ricans “shall be deemed and held to be citizens of Porto (sic) Rico.” Fifty years later, Public Law 600 recognized Puerto Ricans as “peoples.” In 1953, in a push to get international recognition for the Commonwealth as a pact between the U.S. and Puerto Rico “forming a political association, which respects the individuality and the cultural characteristics of Puerto Rico [and] maintains the spiritual bonds between Puerto Rico and Latin America,” the United States pursued Resolution 748 at the U.N. General Assembly, allowing the U.S. to cease delivering annual reports on Puerto Rico’s colonial status. Our nationhood has withstood all attempts to be assimilated. Puerto Ricans refer to Puerto Rico as “el País” (the country). Puerto Ricans are a nation, and its people are in Puerto Rico and in its global diaspora. We are not American expats living in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a domestic issue: Partially true. Puerto Rico is a domestic issue as much as it is an international issue. The U.S. took over Puerto Rico through invasion, bilateral negotiation, and a peace protocol, normalizing the relationship through Supreme Court decisions known as the Insular Cases. The U.S. scored a diplomatic victory with U.N. approval of Resolution 748. Even though Puerto Ricans at the time already were U.S. citizens, and even if the country’s political fate was thought to have been sealed, Puerto Rico today again faces the important issue of sovereignty.
Furthermore, the persistent federal mismanagement of the humanitarian crisis following the 2017 hurricanes will continue to be an international issue, as economic, political and social conditions deteriorate. Puerto Rico is a pending international issue with multilateral repercussions.
Puerto Rico has no option but statehood: False. Puerto Rico’s status question can be resolved with strong bipartisan commitment. Inspired by its anti-colonial foundational spirit, guided by its experience with the freely associated republics in the Pacific, and in compliance with international law, the United States has available political options that Puerto Ricans would be ready to discuss. In fact, many Puerto Rican professionals agree that negotiating a compact of Free Association with the United States is the correct mechanism for finding a reasonable political solution to this issue.
Congress will serve the cause of Puerto Rico and the United States by understanding and accepting that Puerto Rico needs decolonization, through a process of dialogue and negotiation. Statehood goes against U.S. political and economic interests, and actually never has been on the negotiating table. Sovereignty serves the interests of both countries, and currently is Puerto Rico’s only feasible solution for decolonization and economic development.
Controlled opposition protests have been happening not just throughout the 50 US states but on 3 continents worldwide, from London to Seoul to Melbourne.
Why would the people of Europe, Asia and Australia care so much about the alleged murder of a black man that they would feel compelled to actually take to the streets and protest over it, given the incident didn’t even even happen in their country?
For those following the worldwide conspiracy closely, these kind of things are clues that this whole event – race baiting, agent provocateurs, conveniently dropped off pallets of bricks, looting, Antifa, BLM (Black Lives Matter), government-sanctioned controlled opposition protests and more – is yet another piece of social engineering from the NWO (New World Order) script.
The same old race-baiters are behind the BLM and Antifa violent protests
It’s a blatant divide-and-conquer tactic devised to distract people away from the serious rights and freedoms that are being destroyed under the guise of fighting a pandemic.
It’s a transparent ploy to stoke and then exploit racial tension. So, let’s take a look at how the NWO manipulators are doing it.
Controlled Opposition Protests Actively Encouraged By Government
The first clue things are not as they seem in the Matrix is that numerous government officials have been telling people to protest! That’s right; not only have officials stated they have no problem with people demonstrating, they have actually encouraged and promoted it.
When has government ever done this in the past?
Why on earth would self-interested politicians want people to protest against them unless it was part of their plan?
What self-respecting activist needs to be formally and officially invited by the government to protest?
If red flags haven’t gone up for you when you hear that, you need to seriously develop your skepticism and bullshit detect-o-meter.
What would you think if a bank formally invited thieves to come and rob it that night, and rolled out the red carpet for them to do so?
– its serves the NWO agenda for people to be focused on imaginary, inflated or unimportant issues (race wars) rather than actual and essential issues (the destruction of freedom and inherent rights);
– whether people protest or not, stay at home or not, social distance or not, wear a mask or not etc., has nothing to do with science, reason or logic and everything to do with how it serves the NWO agenda.
For instance, when COVID was the focus in March-May, it served the ruling class for everyone to be OCD and scared of everyone and everything around them.
Now, it serves the ruling class for people to protest, which is why social distancing has dropped off the radar and no one seems to care about enforcing or performing it anymore.
When authorities tell them to stay at home, they obey.
When authorities tell them to be scared (immensely scared), they obey.
When authorities tell them to social distance, they obey.
When authorities tell them to wear a mask, they obey.
Now, when authorities tell them to dutifully protest, they obey.
So tell me: where were all these protestors 3 months ago when a coup was being pulled off to permanently transform society? Hiding in their houses like scared little mice, most of them;
– Social engineers are telling you how to think, how to feel and what you allowed to be angry at.
You’re not allowed to question the scientific basis of the fake pandemic; you’re not allowed to be angry at forced contact tracing surveillance and vaccination; but you may be angry at racism, as long as it’s white on black racism.
How do you like being told what to feel?;
– These controlled-opposition protests are corporate-sponsored. Nike, Amazon and all the big corporate giants can’t tell you fast enough how much they deeply care for black people.
Sure, some of this is good old-fashioned virtue-signalling (look at me, look how pious I am) and market posturing which will be calculatedly exploited to increase profit.
However, it is also more evidence that this entire phenomenon is scripted by the big players who are in on the agenda and are collectively and systematically promoting it;
– As with any MSM-reported event, we have to question everything.
If Floyd was really killed by police officer Chauvin as depicted in the video, is it just a coincidence that they both knew each other and worked as security for the same club (as reported here)?
“We acknowledge, respect, and celebrate differences and commonalities. We work vigorously for freedom and justice for Black people and, by extension, all people.
“We intentionally build and nurture a beloved community that is bonded together through a beautiful struggle that is restorative, not depleting.
“We are unapologetically Black in our positioning. In affirming that Black Lives Matter, we need not qualify our position. To love and desire freedom and justice for ourselves is a prerequisite for wanting the same for others.
“We see ourselves as part of the global Black family, and we are aware of the different ways we are impacted or privileged as Black people who exist in different parts of the world.”
So far, so good. This is to be expected for an organization formed to stand up for Black rights. But look what it goes into next:
“We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location.
We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.
We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.
We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.
We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).
We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.
We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
Whoa! Wait a minute here. What does standing up for black rights and standing against racism have to do with sexual identity, transgenderism, “cisgender privilege”, feminism, sexism, misogyny and gay rights?
What is going on here?
A good 40-50% of their “What We Believe” page, which is like a mission statement, has absolutely nothing to do with blacks at all!
This is yet another clue that reveals that society is being steered in a certain direction which has nothing to do with genuine care for black people or a genuine desire to stop racism.
Many blacks are getting it, such as Candace Owens and this passionate and intelligent black man who tells his white friends that “All Lives Matter”, that they shouldn’t be feeling any white guilt just for being white and that they should absolutely not buy into the lie that white people today should pay reparations to black people today.
Obama Foundation Foreknowledge? Releases Poster Picture Of George Floyd … 8 Days Before He Dies
George Floyd was a troubled individual and a felon, who had done things in his past such as hold a gun to a pregnant woman’s belly. He apparently had meth and fentanyl in his bloodstream at the time of death. The below tweet from the Obama Foundation is dated May 17th:
Snopes predictably defends the Obama Foundation by claiming Twitter automatically updated the image from the tweet later on. Do you buy that?
Or was there a poster of Floyd prepared at least 8 days before he died? If so, this kind of foreknowledge is typical of psychological operations and false flag events where the entire incident is planned well in advance, the real orchestrators are hidden from public sight and the event is made to look like a random occurrence.
Questions To Consider In Looking Closely At BLM And The Controlled Opposition Protests
In this Instagram video, Tommy Vext does a great short analysis of how this thing works: the MSM focuses on BLM and Antifa, who are in turn funded by Soros, the Clintons and others. Agent provocateurs make it look like normal, peaceful Black Americans are violent and crazy. The same people who orchestrated the event control the MSM to direct people’s perception of it.
1. Why are people protesting in Australia, Korea and the UK over the death of an American black man?
2. Police brutality is rife over-militarized America. It happens all the time. Why is this death different? Why did the George Floyd video suddenly get noticed, and not the dozens of other videos of police being brutally violent? Why is an allegedly grass-roots social revolution enjoying sponsorship as if they were a sports team?
3. Why are we being led to obsess over race?
4. Why are we being led to hyper-focus on the idea that individuals should be defined in terms of their group identity – not their personality or – as Martin Luther King Jr. famously said – the content of their character?
5. As Douglas Murray writes in his article Why I won’t ‘take the knee’, when does this over-correction end? How much longer do white people need to apologize and prostrate themselves at the feet of black people for the crime of being white, even when they are not racist themselves and it’s 100% about what some white people (not even their direct ancestors) did to some black people generations ago?
“The current moment of over-correction appears to consist of an attempt to make all white people confess to some culpability in racist murder …
“Who will tell you when you have over-corrected for long enough?” and “How would you know that you have?” Perhaps most pertinently for the present moment is the question “How would you be sure that this overswing of the pendulum in one direction does not lead to its overswing in the other direction when it starts to head back?””
“An officer with the Saint Paul Police Department has been publicly named by someone identified as the officer’s ex-wife, who said his voice, walk and gas mask made her “90% sure” it was him. The Saint Paul Police Department has denied this. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, but it is a very safe bet that it’s a law enforcement officer of some kind. Disruptive police infiltration of protest movements is a historical constant in America, after all. It is the norm, not the exception.”
8. Who is pushing the idea of defunding the police? Why? While police brutality is a big problem in America, there is possibly a bigger problem: having no police at all.
This would create a power vacuum and likely lead to either mob rule (with more rioting, looting and theft), martial law or a new kind of force to “keep the order” which could mean national or international police.
If the latter, this would mean new police that are entirely disconnected from the community they are policing and its needs. Is the call to defund the police part of the New World Order strategy to create even less connection between the rulers/enforcers and the rest of us?
Conclusion: Protests Play Right Into The Government’s Hands
These protest and riots are exactly what the government wants. Government is pretty useless at taking care of most things, but if it’s one thing it excels at, it’s taking care of riots.
Governments love violence.
When people get violent, it gives the power-hungry control freak politicians the perfect excuse they need to mobilize the police and military.
Government has way more firepower than the people, so there’s no point fighting them int that arena. It won’t work.
Clearly, the social engineers have certain formulas they use to control the masses. One common tactic is for them to race bait, invoke massive emotion, stir up anger and create social unrest. It’s like flicking a switch.
Just when people were starting to become really fed up and angry with the ridiculous restrictions of the fake pandemic, the NWO controllers decided it was time to inject a new narrative into the mass consciousness. Stay alert and aware.
Nationally, efforts to defund the police have been broadly unpopular, with only about 20 percent of Americans favoring reductions in police forces. Citing publicly available data, commentators have asserted that the very idea of systemic racism by police is questionable.
“In 2018, the latest year for which such data have been published, African-Americans made up 53% of known homicide offenders in the U.S. and commit about 60% of robberies, though they are 13% of the population,” Heather Mac Donald wrote in The Wall Street Journal this week.
“In 2018 there were 7,407 black homicide victims,” she went on. “Assuming a comparable number of victims last year, those nine unarmed black victims of police shootings represent 0.1% of all African-Americans killed in 2019.
“By contrast, a police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.”
Mac Donald continued:
“A 2015 Justice Department analysis of the Philadelphia Police Department found that white police officers were less likely than black or Hispanic officers to shoot unarmed black suspects.
“Research by Harvard economist Roland G. Fryer Jr. also found no evidence of racial discrimination in shootings. Any evidence to the contrary fails to take into account crime rates and civilian behavior before and during interactions with police.”
Fryer’s work has also determined that when police pull out of communities, black deaths tend to increase.
Protests are a regular feature of democratic society, but, as Visual Capitalist’s Nick Routley explores below, they can occasionally cross over from non-violent demonstrations into civil unrest. Even protests that are largely peaceful can still result in arrests, violence, police aggression, and property damage.
Visual Capitalist’s animated map below looks at the last two decades of civil unrest in the United States using lists compiled on Wikipedia.
Instances of civil unrest eventually leave the news cycle, and we rarely have the chance to examine the bigger picture or see where they fit within a nation-wide pattern.
From this map we can see that certain cities, such as St. Louis and Oakland, have been disproportionately impacted by civil unrest. As well, universities have also been hotspots for rioting, though often for much different reasons.
Looking back over two decades, we see that instances of civil unrest in the United States have fallen into roughly four categories:
Economic and social injustice
Sports and event related riots
Politically motivated civil unrest
Reaction to police actions
Let’s take a look at a prominent example in each of these categories, to get further context.
Examples of Civil Unrest, by Category
1. Economic and Social Justice
One of the most prominent examples in this category is the Occupy Wall Street movement. The protests began in September 2011 in Downtown Manhattan, and soon spread through cities throughout the world.
In 2016, the Dakota Access Pipeline protests grabbed headlines around the world as protesters faced off against armed soldiers and police with riot gear and military equipment. By the time camps were broken up the next year, hundreds of people had been arrested.
2. Sports and Event Related Riots
Between 2000 and 2010, the majority of incidents plotted on the map are related to sports and events. This includes major sporting events like the L.A. Lakers championship win in 2000, but also the University of Maryland riot of 2004, where rowdy post-game celebrations crossed over into arson and property damage.
A more recent example is the Philadelphia Eagles’ first-ever Super Bowl victory in 2018, where celebrations eventually got out of hand.
3. Politically Motivated Civil Unrest
The political divide has been growing in America for years now, but those differences more frequently resulted in confrontations and civil unrest in 2016. After the election of Donald Trump, for example, protests erupted in many cities, with riots breaking out in Portland, Oregon, and Oakland, California.
Of course, the “Bundy standoff” – an armed confrontation between supporters of cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and law enforcement over withheld grazing fees – showed that not all civil unrest takes place in America’s cities.
4. Reaction to Police Actions
Some of the biggest flashpoints seen in recent years have been in response to people who were killed by police.
In fact, more than half of the points on our map were a direct response to incidents in which a person – typically a black male – died at the hands of law enforcement officials. In previous years, the unrest that followed was typically confined to the cities where the death took place, but protests are now increasingly erupting in cities around the country.
The Situation Now
The death of George Floyd – the latest black male to be killed during an encounter with law enforcement – has had a ripple effect, spawning protests in cities around the United States and internationally.
As our map showing the history of civil unrest makes clear, excessive force from police against black citizens is nothing new. The data shows that black men have by far the highest risk of being killed in an encounter with law enforcement.
Until these systemic issues are addressed, history may not repeat exactly, but the rhyme will sound very, very familiar
