Chile REJECTS Woke ‘Socialist Policy Wish List’ After Mandatory Voting
Chile was on the brink of Marxism, as President Gabriel Boric was pushing for a new progressive constitution that has been “resoundingly rejected.”
South American communists and socialists were hoping to turn the nation woke, by scrapping the original Chile constitution that was written by the previous anti-Communist leader Augusto Pinochet.
Per the AP:
With 99% of the votes counted in Sunday’s plebiscite, the rejection camp had 61.9% support compared to 38.1% for approval amid heavy turnout with long lines at polling states. Voting was mandatory.
The approval camp conceded defeat, with its spokesman Vlado Mirosevic saying: “We recognize this result and we listen with humility to what the Chilean people have expressed.”
Boric, who had lobbied hard for the new document, said the results made it evident the Chilean people “were not satisfied with the constitutional proposal that the convention presented to Chile.”

The National Review explained the dangers of this new progressive constitution that would “create an unequal justice system and grant more rights for those who claim indigenous ancestry.”
“The proposed Chilean constitution reads like a longer, more woke, and even more socialist version of Venezuela’s constitution,” NR reported.
“Like Venezuela’s, it uses masculine and feminine pronouns in every instance, in an aim to be inclusive,” the outlet added. “Even though the masculine plural is traditionally understood to be capable of referring to women as well.”
NR would describe the rejected constitution as a “socialist policy wish list.”
If Chileans had not voted the way they did, the nation would have been turned into a “plurinational and paritarian” republic. One that divides citizens based on their sex and ethic heritage.
The government would give reparations for all forms of past discrimination. In addition to legalized abortion up until birth, forced gender ideology, and a government-paid healthcare system.
The new constitution would have also allowed the Chile government to seize retirement savings, and abolish for-profit education.
More from NR:
Perhaps the most concerning part of the proposed Chilean constitution is the erosion of the division of powers and the legal inequality it would create in the name of social justice.
It would replace the senate with a nearly ceremonial “chamber of regions,” and it would allow congress to set its own election method by simple majority.
Seats in every legislative body would be reserved for indigenous groups according to their share of the population.
Those registered in a public electoral registry of indigenous people would be able to vote for such representatives in addition to voting for nonindigenous representatives.
In other words, a segment of the population would have double representation.
Thankfully, this woke constitution was massively rejected by the Chilean people. Thus preserving decades of successful policy and unrivaled prosperity.
