113 Mexican Politicians Have Been Killed Since September

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

The number of Mexican politicians killed since September continues to rise. 

Recently, a politician was killed while taking a selfie and another was shot in her home just off the coast of Cancun.

The New York Post reported that a Mexican politician who pledged to defy organized crime was shot dead as he posed for a picture with an admirer, according to reports and video (fwd to 35 secs in and watch the man walking from the bottom left)

Congressional candidate Fernando Purón had just finished an election debate in the border city of Piedras Negras on Friday night when a woman holding a selfie stick asked him to take a picture, the Vanguardia reported.

Rosely Danilu Magaña, a municipal councilor candidate for the Isla Mujeres, located just off the coast of Cancun in Mexico passed away on Monday night after suffering from gunshot wounds she received on Saturday during an attack in a campaign event. The candidate for the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), was attacked when leading a meeting with other political activists at her house.

Mexico’s Political Violence Indicator released by the Ettelek consultancy confirms that Magaña is the 113th politician or candidate to be killed since September 2017.  Political campaigns in Mexico are over on June 27, four days before one of the country’s most important general elections in recent history to take place on July 1. More than 1,000 candidates have dropped out of local races ahead of the July 1 elections because they fear being gunned down.

Proving the drug war isn’t working, Mexico registered a record 29,168 homicides in 2017, which is the 11th year of the country’s crackdown on organized crime.

Drug cartels are suspected in many murders of politicians, which take place in regions already plagued by gang violence.

There is not a better example of the inevitable failure of ruling classes that the constant killing of politicians in Mexico, says Federico Estevez, a political science professor at the Autonomous Technological Institute of Mexico. The murder of political candidates “creates enormous insecurity, which is felt and bemoaned by the public — and it’s held up in the faces of the politicians for their incapacity to do anything about it,” said Estevez. 

There’s no bigger example of failure out here today than that.”

“Unfortunately, not all those in power do their job — some are even in cahoots with criminals,” Estevez said.

Simpler. Legalise everything. No illegality, no profit.

Recreational drugs are simple and cheap to make. As soon as they are legalised the supply jump will drive profits to zero. The criminals will be bankrupted in 2 years.

It's the illegality which increases risk, increases costs, restricts supply.

The War on Drugs is nearly 50 years old now. It's a great big history of FAIL all round.

Hell, it's not even as if we've got an excuse, exactly the same thing happened with alcohol.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Not to mention that the quality could be controlled and many deaths as a result of contaminants (fentanyl etc.) avoided. Also, legal drugs can be taxed. Now at this point one has to start asking questions because Gubmin is generally not slow at recognizing new opportunities for taxes? Unless, of course, another part of Gubmin is already making more on maintaining the illegal flow? And in untraceable cash; so much easier to spread around to maintain the status quo?

@ Chris2,

Mexico has been a "failed state" for centuries. Remember Pancho Villa? Just a Mexican gang leader from an earlier time.

As the US demographics change, expect the US "political" system to look more like the make up of the population. In other words, the Hispanics from Central and South America will turn the US into another one of their shithole states.

Yes, judging from the way the CIA runs its other drug ratlines, these people are at least trained in basic intelligence operations by the CIA. They could well have CIA-NSA information sources helping them deal with the Mexican police force.

Of course the CIA wants a cut of those drug sales! Jesus, they started the large-scale importation of cocaine in the Iran-Contra episode, remember that?

Black budget is everything for our Deep Black Swamp, necessary to pay off all of the politicians and police who otherwise could easily fubar their budget.

It was imported from the north with the Merida plan: US to give 1 billion USD in cash so that mexgov would buy weapons and helicopters etc. to declare war on the six big name cartels.

 

It was a resounding success /Sarc: Now mexgov faces some 50 different cartels -Offspring and splinter groups from the original- all of them much more violent than the original six.

 

If there's demand, there will be supply. Market rules.

I tell people I'm not interested in travelling outside of the country or to Baltimore and I'm not kidding, would avoid Illinois also.

UK is a mess... 

France is a joke..

Germany the problem

And it's getting close to needing a wall built at the Canadian border and making them pay for it like Mexico

People never look for the simple answers. Like in Genetics. Spain was invaded by the Moors in 711 and the Moors stayed and raped the area for 500 years turning the blond haired blue eyed Spanish into dark skinned, brown eyed assholes. They then traveled the world via the Spanish fleet doing exactly what the Moors did to them only in South America and the Pacific. Killing and raping the Indians, so what you actually have is a significant genetic trait of the Moors/Arabs in the South American Spanish. And where do you find the highest concentrations of murder in the world? Central and South America, and Arab areas. And Africa of course.

While yours is an interesting theory, Mexicans are mestizos.  The Moors did give our women dark hair, brown skin and shapely figures. The Aztecs gave us the unnatural urge to want to cut your heart out and eat it if you harm our families.  It is our penchant for el despota that drives the Anglo Saxon half of me nuts.

Why did you stop there? Why no word about the white atrocities around the world. What about what the British Empire did to many nations? And the White Americans helping to 'liberate' Europe from the nazis?

Here are a good interview that exposes the American lie in WWII. American soldiers were heroes? They committed atrocities even against white people:

That is the Saxon part.  Read James Waller’s Becoming Evil and you will come to understand that the monster walks among us as a shape shifter and he has appeared in every race and every culture.  https://www.amazon.com/Becoming-Evil-Ordinary-Genocide-Killing/dp/0195148681

This is why the Second Amendment is so important.  It is the only way that a minority can stand in the face of the tyranny of the majority.  An armed citizenry is the only check against genocide.

If Muslim genetics is what causes a sudden desire to enslave, rape and generally be unpleasant to an innocent, previously happy nation, perhaps you could explain the German colonisation in Africa, (all blond and friendly, the Germans back in the day), or the Dutch, or god forbid the Belgian behaviour in the Congo. Best not to mention the Brits - they were all so upright and playing with a straight bat etc, that they should be excluded from any conversation about the dreaded Muslim influence around the world.

Either you are very, very dim, or you work for the gatestone institute.

The Bolsheviks are destabilizing EVERYTHING.  There is also a genocide pending for 2-25 million in Yemen as we speak.  It's kind of a big deal.  Their favorite weapon has always been mass starvation and chaos (ask 30 million Russian and Ukrainians).  They have a hundred million out of the workforce and 43 million on food stamps.  They decide when they stop eating.  They funded all of the terrorism including narco-terrorism in Mexico, obviously.  Seeing the picture here?  Just wait until they completely destabilize Mexico, central America and South America.

Can the British people please help the people of Mexico by sending you replacement politicians? Will start you off with Tony Blair and his cabinet and then the rest of the Eton crowd.
