Era would implode if an American artist releases a song like that.
I think issues of diplomatic relationships with a friendly country should be treated in more nuanced ways than just “Spain should apologise for their colonial behaviour”. Particularly when the person making such comments is a fucking head of state.
I didn’t even learn about what we did to the yaquis until I left Mexico. I doubt anybody inside the cabinet will even make an allusion to that, especially since they like playing the victim.
Yeah I agree with that. Politicians (at least not in Mexico) usually not from 'the people' or get there without the help from one 'above' them.After the "every time you eat tacos de carnitas you are celebrating the fall of Tenochtitlan" thing I wasn't expecting something as crazier as this tbqh.
What did they expect to gain from that? Apologies surely not.
Do you remember when the King of Spain shouted to Hugo Chavez "Por qué no te callas?" in the middle of an international meeting?
I do believe they owe the whole Latinamerican countries at least an apology, sure. But at the same time I think that the president and his administration are taking decisions with their stomach rather than using their brain.
I like this text that talks about the ones that are the current administration:
A far right political party in Spain. Per Wikipedia:
Vox takes a pro-life stance on abortion and opposes same-sex marriage because they consider the Spanish word for marriage, "matrimonio", to be etymologically inadequate for same sex couples. Vox seeks to create a new type of union, called a "civil union", to replace same-sex marriage.
Starting with a focus in economically liberal stances and recentralization proposals, the focus of their message shifted towards stances compatible with European right-wing populism, endorsing anti-Islam as well as criticism of multiculturalism, but at the same time promoting immigration from countries of Latin America in order to repopulate Spain. Their view of European Union is that of a soft euroscepticism, arguing that Spain should make no sovereignty concessions to the EU, because they consider Spanish sovereignty to reside in the Spanish nation alone. They propose to eliminate Spain's autonomous communities. In addition, they seek the return of Gibraltar to full Spanish sovereignty.
Vox is considered antifeminist, and wants to repeal the gender violence law, which is considered as "discriminant against one of the sexes" and replace it with a "family violence law that will afford the same protection to the elderly, men, women and children who suffer from abuse".
The party pleads for the closure of fundamentalist mosques as well as the arrest and expulsion of extremist imams.
According to Xavier Casals, the warlike ultranationalism in Vox, unifying part of its ideology up to this point, is identified by the party with a palingenetic and biological vision of the country, the so-called "España Viva", but also with a Catholic-inspired culture.
