AMLO’s love and affection for Cuba’s dictatorship is not felt by all Mexicans

Thankfully, not all Mexicans share the same love and affection their president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has for Cuba’s corrupt and murderous communist dictatorship.

Mexico Rejects AMLO’S Admiration for Cuba: An Interview with América Rangel

The congresswoman from the National Action Party (PAN) has launched a formidable campaign to raise awareness of the brutalities of the communist regime in Havana and has singled out the Mexican president for his dishonorable conduct.

The Cuban dictator’s visit to Mexico has prompted a great controversy. Díaz Canel’s presence is only half of it. The conduct of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) and his statements of reverence towards Cuban communism has left many in shock. Mexican society, for the most part, has felt insulted and has demonstrated a general rejection for both, the state visit by the head of a sixty-two-year-old Marxist-Leninist dictatorship, and the pronouncements of apologia by AMLO.

The fact that this all occurred on the day Mexico celebrates its 211th independence anniversary, in an official national holiday and celebration, is abominable, as judged by international reactions, but especially by Mexicans themselves.

El American had the opportunity to interview congresswoman America Rangel Lorenzana from the National Action Party (PAN), Mexico’s conservative party founded in 1938. The congresswoman representing Mexico City has launched a formidable campaign to raise awareness of the brutalities of the communist regime in Havana and has singled out the Mexican president for his dishonorable conduct. This, Rangel believes, is unbecoming of a head of state in a republic.

Involving herself in politics since she was 15 years old, the very qualified Mexico City representative demonstrates that she is assuredly up for the fight and defend her country from socialism. Rangel’s work has demonstrated that. First, by getting involved in the intricacies of the PAN where she was instrumental in guiding the party’s platform and principles. Since 2018, she has taken the good fight to Congress, as one of its members.

  1. Yes and no. All Mexicans are not the same, but history shows the majority are, uh, problematic, to put it charitably. It is that majority which made AMLO president, and he’s not the real problem–THEY are.

  2. Maybe I’m cynical, but I’m reminded of the Spanish “right” being (or sounding) much more anti-Castro when they were not on power, only to sing a much softer and more subdued tune when they were. We keep thinking the world is bound to do right by Cuba, but that’s largely a fantasy.
