Joy! FMLN Terrorists Win In El Salvador

From an ecstatic Associated Press:

Salvadoran ex-rebels win presidency for first time

By Alexandra Olson, Associated Press Writer

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador – A leftist television journalist has won El Salvador’s presidential election, bringing a party of former guerrillas to power for the first time since a bloody civil war and ending two decades of conservative rule.

Mauricio Funes, a moderate plucked from outside the ranks of the rebel-group-turned-political-party Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front, became the latest leftist to rise to power in Latin America at a time of uncertainty over how President Barack Obama will approach the region.

With 90 percent of the vote counted late Sunday, Funes had 51 percent compared to 49 percent for Rodrigo Avila of the ruling conservative Arena party, said Walter Araujo, president of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal…

Funes, 49, rode a wave of discontent with two decades of Arena party rule that have brought economic growth but done little to redress social inequalities

Funes promised to crack down on big businesses which he says exploit government complacency to evade taxes…

The Obama government has assured Salvadorans it would work with any leader elected — a marked departure from the Bush administration, which in 2004 suggested that an FMLN victory would hurt ties…

Chavez said earlier Sunday that his government was not taking sides in the election, adding that Venezuela wants to broaden its relations with whoever won.

Of course Mr. Chavez bought this election for his communist friends in El Salvador.

But we have nothing to worry about.

Just like they did for Mr. Ortega in Nicaragua (and Hugo Chavez, for that matter), our watch dog media have assured us that Mr. Funes is now a reformed moderate.

And after all, when has our media ever lied to us before?

Heck, Mr. Funes – an ex-CNN “reporter,” is even one of our media betters.

    Remind me, he’s different from Obama how?

    I have a record [not available here] of crying loudly about Marxism and Communism creeping up and surrounding America. What’s going on in Mexico may look like drug violence and cartels to the media but it’s more of the same thing.

    The wealthy and elite you never hear of, the real Masters of the Universe in the background adore Communism. Communism is not political ideology. It is a criminal cabal, a mafia what wraps itself in the language and mufti of political ideology. It is vampirism, a cult of ravening. Wealthy and elite on top forcing all others to serve them. The Democrats are the North American franchise and you can understand them properly as S.P.E.C.T.R.E. Those who operate it are global, well connected and networked. The people I’ve known who are really wealthy – and they’re not on Forbe’s faux list – think competition is the greatest sin there is. They neither risk, nor compete. They buy, they rig, they plunder, they commit every sin under the Sun to enlarge their power and money is just a way to keep score. The real currency is secrets. Funes would not be in power otherwise. He’s ‘their’ man in yet another rigged, razor thin ‘election’. Deals were made, pockets lined, promises whispered to those who stood in the way and another domino falls. Has everyone forgotten the Communists’ domino strategy?

    Referring to communism in Indochina, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower put the theory into words during an April 7, 1954 news conference:
    “ Finally, you have broader considerations that might follow what you would call the “falling domino” principle. You have a row of dominoes set up, you knock over the first one, and what will happen to the last one is the certainty that it will go over very quickly. So you could have a beginning of a disintegration that would have the most profound influences.”

    And they earnestly, deeply, fervently, passionately strive to conquer America and sink their fangs deep into our jugular to suck us dry. If you can do the Vulcan mind meld and understand these are really and truly vamipical, then this battlefield strategy of flanking and surrounding will make all the sense. They’ve hated us from the beginning …. and Obama is their puppet. Like Funes.

    Hated us from the beginning …

    Upon the occasion of this upstart and brash United States of America printing its own currency at the end of the Revolution, without cost of interest and further, backed at par with gold and silver, the following opinion letter appeared in the London Times by the Exchequer of the Bank of England –

    “….if that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”

    … we’re the one that got away. Their lust will only be sated after we are a corpse.

    Glad to see that Funes won, but disappointed by the shallow coverage of the election by english news sources. The Nation has a very interesting interview with Funes on YouTube, but for the most part the tone and basic level of the content was captured by this newsy piece http://www.newsy.com/videos/el_salvador_s_leftist_leader/. El Salvador’s gang problem is definitely something that will impact Americans in the future and we should be paying attention to it and Funes.
