The Native people of Bolivia contemplate the Planter coup against their President
This will be a thread for serious discussion of the brutal terrorist coup that has been perpetrated against the majority of the Bolivian people, who have democratically elected their President Evo Morales. Any right wing trolls will be removed from this thread, but if genuine right wingers have something genuine to say (unlikely though that may be) they are welcome to do so.
The situation seems to be that after weeks of US backed terrorist attacks in Bolivian cities, traitors in the Bolivian Army have forced the democratically elected President to step down.
The big question now is - Will the coup succeed? Morales stepped down without much resistance. Is he confident that the majority will not be intimidated into silence? Morales had nationalized the nation's natural resources and used the money to uplift the poor - mostly Native people. This enraged US multinationals and the white colonial Planters, who have "owned" the country since the time of Cortez.
The Native people have enjoyed 14 years of being ruled by one of their own - Evo Morales. That's 14 years when they didn't have to bow down and tug the forelock to the Planter. Will they be willing to get back down on their knees again? It seems Morales is confident that they won't - and that the coup will fail.
Here is a detailed article that explains the criminal backgrounds of the coup plotters. You might ask why Morales hadn't dealt with these scum a long time ago. I'd ask that myself. As in Ireland, the threat of Planter violence is always the underlying reality of politics.
