As many people know, Chile is one of my favorite countries on Earth; so when I saw that the Commies had been routed in the last elections there, I did a little Happy Dance:
Chile’s most prominent right-wing party has romped an election on Sunday night aimed at selecting members for the constitutional assembly responsible for drafting the country’s new constitution.
The assembly was tasked with creating a new constitution to replace the one that was implemented during the military rule of General Augusto Pinochet which many credited for making Chile the most prosperous country in the region.
Needless to say, the Commies wanted to get rid of this horrible thing because Commies:
A draft by a predominantly left-wing assembly was overwhelmingly rejected in a national referendum. The draft had proposed numerous changes, including replacing the Senate with a Chamber of Regions and recognizing Chile as a “plurinational state,” granting indigenous groups additional rights and guarantees.
It also guaranteed several social benefits and environmental standards, making it one of the most progressive constitutions worldwide.
But unfortunately for them:
The proposal was turned down by 62 percent of voters in September 2022, prompting the latest election.
The Republican Party, led by conservative firebrand José Antonio Kast, emerged victorious with 22 seats after winning over 35 percent of the votes.
Here’s what happens next:
The assembly will now face the challenging task of reconciling the conservative majority’s ideas with the demand for change that sparked the process. Starting from June, the newly appointed constitutional councilors will have a four-month window to deliberate, converse, and implement alterations to a new constitution.
A final decision from the voters on the redraft will be made via another vote in December. If Chileans reject the updated constitution, the country will retain its previous Pinochet-era constitution.
Looks good for our side, huh? A decisive (conservative) majority is about to set about making changes to the national constitution, if needed.
Well, the Left aren’t going to let a little thing like a popular majority interfere with their plans, of course. So in typical fashion, they’ve responded the way they always do in such situations:
Unidentified hooded men attacked the home of conservative Republican Party lawmaker Héctor Urban on Tuesday evening. Urban was recently elected to help draft a new constitution for Chile.
The attack at Urban’s residence took place hours after a group of unidentified men set a vehicle on fire that belonged to the local Victoria Municipality and opened fire on the government official that drove the vehicle, seriously injuring one of his legs. Urban’s father, René Urban, a farmer who was presently working at the scene of the fire, also had his truck shot at but suffered no injuries.
Unknown assailants also attacked a police station in the town after the attack on Urban’s residence on Tuesday evening. Two members of Chile’s Carabineros law enforcement gendarmerie were reportedly injured with pellets.
Yeah, “unidentified gunmen” — probably some of those White Christian supremacist groups that we’re always hearing about.
These scumbags are the brothers-in-arms of those Leftist bastards who violently demonstrated outside the homes of our conservative Supreme Court justices and made death threats against them around the time of the Dobbs (anti-Roe v. Wade) decision.
