Anti-Trump Puerto Rican Mayor Supported Terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera


 

Mayor Cruz supported one of the most dangerous domestic terrorists around. In the end, he was sentenced to 55 years but whose sentence was commuted by Obama. A Marxist. But of course. No doubt Cruz will run for Governor so she can turn this hell hole into the next Marxist Utopia:

Carmen Yulin Cruz, the anti-Trump Mayor of San Juan who has used the national spotlight of Hurricane Maria to attack Trump, has a long history of supporting convicted terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera, a Puerto Rican radical who ran a paramilitary group that waged war against the United States.

Since May 29th, 2012, Cruz has used her official Twitter account 49 times to lend support to Lopez, a man arrested by the United States government in May of 1981 for seditious conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to transport explosives to destroy government property, among other charges. Later that year, Lopez was sentenced to 55 years in jail for his various crimes.

Indeed, Cruz and Lopez appear to be not just friends, but close friends.

Several months after President Obama commuted Rivera’s sentence just before he left office, a decision so bizarre even CNN’s Jake Tapper didn’t understand it, Cruz tweeted a selfie of herself with a man who closely resembles Rivera, with the caption reading “Welcome #OscarLopez”

However, this is hardly surprising, given her long history of using her political clout to advocate on the convicted terrorist’s behalf. On September 20th, 2012, Cruz tweeted a picture of herself posing with street art of Rivera, writing “Free Oscar Lopez Rivera.”

Most Americans may not have heard of Lopez, or the organization he helped lead, the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (FALN), a radical Marxist Puerto Rican independence group. With the focus of post-9/11 terrorism falling almost exclusively on Islamist radicals, the violent nationalists of yesteryear—Puerto Rican, Cuban, Croatian and Jewish—have faded into obscurity. But during the FALN’s explosive heyday under Lopez’s leadership, the group was anything but obscure. In fact, from 1974, when the group announced itself with its first bombings, to 1983, when arrests finally destroyed its membership base, the FALN was the most organized, active, well-trained and deadly domestic terror group based in the United States.

The FALN was responsible for over 130 bombings during this period, including the January 1975 explosion in Manhattan’s historic Fraunces Tavern, which killed four and wounded 63. In October of that year, it set off, all within the span of an hour, 10 bombs in three cities, causing nearly a million dollars in damage. In August 1977, the FALN set off a series of bombs in Manhattan, forcing 100,000 workers to evacuate their offices; one person was killed, and six were injured. In 1979, the group even threatened to blow up the Indian Point nuclear energy facility located north of New York City. It later sent a communiqué warning the U.S. to “remember … that you have never experienced war on your vitals and that you have many nuclear reactors.” In 1980, FALN members stormed the Carter-Mondale election headquarters in Chicago, and the George H.W. Bush campaign headquarters in New York, holding employees there hostage at gunpoint. In 1981, they plotted to kidnap President Reagan’s son Ron. Plainly, the group was deadly serious about its objectives—a free, independent and socialist Puerto Rico—and zealous in its pursuit of them. More at Politico

    We not only require more conservative politicians, but we also desperately need sanitation engineers to help us dispense with the filth that is the democratic party.

    The Puerto Rican voters, again, no smarter than most US voters will surely deliver the governorship to the leftist Cruz even as she continues to hold up the ample aid and money sent there in order to score political points against Trump and the right. The glaring difference between the workers paradises of Cuba and Venezuela, neither of which have employment for their long suffering people, will be the US subsidizing a possibly communist PRS. And yes kiddies she will take the money from the hated capitalist gringos while espousing her hatred for Trump. And the right. Surely the PR people will vote for statehood next time around and thereby delivering a blue state to the democrats.
