After Day of Extreme Violence, Catalan President Announces Independence Has Been Won

Published

on

Shortly after voting for the referendum to leave Spain ended, Catalan president Carles Puigdemont announced that his people have “won the right to become an independent state.”

Puigemont added that he will be appealing to the European Union and looking into human rights violations by the Spanish police against the people in the prosperous region of Catalonia as they attempted to vote.

Sunday’s votes brought a wave of extreme and shocking violence from the Spanish police, who brutalized the young and elderly alike — as masked officers ripped ballot boxes from the polling places.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy claims that the referendum was only being brought on to create division and chaos in the nation, as it has been blocked by the courts as being illegal under their constitution. Supporters of independence argue that the Catalan people are distinct from the rest of Spain and should have their own nation.

“Police brutality will shame forever the Spanish state,” Catalan President Carles Puigdemont told a crowd as they loudly expressed their agreement.

According to the Catalonian Department of Health, 844 people were injured to the point of requiring medical assistance as they attempted to cast their ballots. At least 11 police officers were also injured.

The situation became so dire that the Catalonian Fire Department stepped in to fight the Spanish police and protect the voters.

Despite Spain’s government’s extreme measures to stop the vote from taking place, the majority of polling stations remained open for voting throughout the day.

“They share a distinct language, culture, and historical memory. They have as strong a claim to self-determination as any people,” DC-based lawyer Will Chamberlain, who has been closely following the events, told Big League Politics.

Chamberlain predicts that more powerful nations will force Spain’s hand by recognizing Catalonia, and that Rajoy will have to resign. The brutal violence, he believes, will make it far more difficult for nations to support the Spanish government on this issue.

As the world watched the events unfold in horror, Rajoy told reporters that he hopes Catalan leaders will now give up on their separatist goals and get back to political normality — referring to the vote as “illegal” and a “mockery.”

Given Puigdemont’s announcement and the situation in their streets, it seems highly unlikely that the people of Catalan will be backing down. If anything, it appears that the violence has only strengthened their resolve.

HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist

Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.

Published

New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.

Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.

Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.

More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.

Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.

Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.

Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
