Bolivian President Evo Morales is Out, His Supporters Want Civil War

Published

on

On November 11, 2019, the former president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, who resigned due to pressure from protestors and the military, received asylum from Mexico.

To say that Bolivia is going through political chaos is an understatement.

Morales left office on Sunday and was granted refuge “for humanitarian reasons and in light of the urgent situation Bolivia is facing,” according to Mexico’s foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, during a televised statement on Monday.

Now, there is a major power vacuum in Bolivia where various politicians are vying to succeed Morales.

Supporters of Morales are now coming to the former president’s defense.

In fact, Aurora Intel highlighted how “Thousands of Morales supporters (some of which are armed) are currently marching through El Alto towards La Paz while chanting “Now yes, civil war” #Bolivia

 

Morales originally said he was deposed in a “coup”, but then softened his rhetoric on Monday afternoon and called for an end to violence in Twitter messages.

“We can’t have a confrontation between Bolivian brothers,” he stated. “I am making an urgent appeal to resolve any differences with dialogue.”

The entire political crisis started when Morales claimed an electoral victory during the October 20 elections, which protestors and international observers believe was rigged.

Following the election results, demonstrators filled the streets and put the country at a political standstill. Eventually, the general of the Bolivian armed forces Williams Kaliman called for Morales to step down.

Morales was a staunch ally of the Venezuelan regime — the standard-bearer for Latin American socialism — and positioned himself as one of Latin America’s most charismatic leaders after the death of Hugo Chávez.

Having served in office since 2006, it appears that Morales has worn out his welcome.

Bolivia will need a genuine right-wing government to move forward.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
