Good God, what’s going on in Mexico? Looks like Mexico’s congressional tribunal was the scene of an knock-down, drag-out brawl as leftist politicians attempted to impede conservative President-elect Felipe Calderon’s inauguration. Pictures are worth a thousand words in this case.
Felipe Calderon’s inauguration as President of Mexico went through a grotesque event when “diputados” from the left and the right went to blows with each other in the congressional tribunal where the swearing in was going to take palce. The leftists’ objective was to impede the inauguration ceremony of Calderon. However, members of the PAN, Calderon’s party, blocked them with pushing and screaming, and finally both groups remained in the room, swearing that neither will leave.
This just makes me sad. I won’t pretend to be objective. I am angered at the fact that the Mexican left can’t catch a break because corruption is built into the system. And, I can identify with those who were so pissed they wanted to do something at the last minute (harken back to our own “democratic” elections), but unfortunately, after months of protest and other acts of civil disobedience, it may be time to call it quits.
