New York Mayor and 2020 presidential candidate Bill de Blasio recently apologized for reciting a Che Guevara quote.
On video before a crowd of union members in Miami, de Blasio was caught yelling, “Hasta la victoria, siempre!” which is the Spanish translation for “Until victory, always!”
“Hasta la victoria siempre…”

As he spoke to the crowd of striking airport workers, de Blasio added, “We will be with you every step of the way.”
This was the iconic slogan of Communist guerilla leader Ernesto “Che” Guevara.
De Blasio was forced to apologize for his remarks, which he highlighted on his twitter. He claims that he did not know that the phrase he used “was associated with Che Guevara” and “did not mean to offend anyone who heard it that way.”
I did not know the phrase I used in Miami today was associated with Che Guevara & I did not mean to offend anyone who heard it that way. I certainly apologize for not understanding that history. (1/2)

However, Florida Senator Marco Rubio was not buying it.
Rubio tweeted: “De Blasio studied Latin American politics in college, was a very active supporter of the Sandinistas in #Nicaragua & even honeymooned in #Cuba in violation of U.S. law. But he had NO IDEA he was quoting Che Guevara today. It was all just an incredible coincidence.”
But he had NO IDEA he was quoting Che Guevara today.
It was all just an incredible coincidence.

The New York Mayor was also criticized by Democratic congresswoman Donna E. Shalala who tweeted that de Blasio’s statement was “unacceptable” and noted the irony of de Blasio using it in Miami, a city with a large Cuban community.
It is unacceptable to quote a murderer like Che Guevara, especially in Miami, where so many people have suffered as a result of his brutality. The @iflyMIA workers protesting for better conditions deserve our strong support, but their efforts should never be tied to that murderer https://t.co/VBsGcudToA

For once, Democrats and Republicans came together in condemning someone who casually uses phrases from a brutal murderer.
As The West Adopts “Wokeism” As New Religion, Russia Bans Homosexual Marriage Permanently
On June 1, 2020, Russia officially enshrined traditional marriage — a union between a man and a woman— in its constitution.
Russia’s new constitution also officially recognizes the role that the Orthodox Church has played in the history and the development of the Russian state.
According to Deutsche Welle, 78 percent of Russian voters pulled the lever in favor of the Constitutional reforms which included the extension of Putin’s term in office and a guaranteed minimum pension.-
Russian President Vladimir Putin made a strong statement to the Russian people, indicating that they were ones in charge of their political destiny:
“I will outline my stand once again. It is clear, unchangeable and absolutely firm: the updated constitution, all the proposed amendments will enter into force only if you approve and support them.”
With this vote casted, Christian marriage is law of the land in Russia.
Unlike its western counterparts, which have embraced political correctness, Russia actually makes efforts to preserve its nation and promote decent values.
If a government is to exist, it should at least promote pro-social behavior and not undermine its historic nation via social engineering or policies that destroy traditional institutions.
Ironically, Russia is one of the few superpowers that gets that.
