Latino female feminists are known to engage in these kinds of church attacks.
It’s always funny to watch them do the “STOP OPPRESSING ME!!!” bit while they literally oppress and attack peaceful people and institutions.
Groups of pro-abortion feminists in Mexico City, Guadalajara, and several other Mexican cities rampaged through the streets on Sunday in a pro-abortion “march” last Saturday that included attempts to set churches and government buildings on fire, spray-painting of graffiti, vandalism, and attacks on bystanders, including reporters.
However, in Guadalajara and Mexico City, Catholics responded to the call to line up in front of their churches to protect them from the vandalism that churches have suffered in previous marches by feminists. The Catholics held banners of Our Lady of Guadalupe and chanted “Viva Cristo Rey,” in imitation of the Cristeros, who defended the Catholic faith from government oppression in the 1920s.
They formed a human shield-wall and chanted “Viva Cristo Rey,” these oppressors! Can you believe the nerve of these patriarchs!?
In Guadalajara, hundreds of Catholics lined up around the city’s cathedral to protect it from the marchers, and no damage was inflicted on the building, despite the fact that the marchers’ rout took them directly next to the building.
In Mexico City, the women tried to set fire to both the gates of the city’s cathedral and the national Chamber of Commerce building. They spray-painted graffiti on sculptures on the Paseo de la Reforma (the city’s main avenue), as well as on the national Government Palace, on walls of businesses, parts of the subway, and on sidewalks. They chanted, “Abortion yes, abortion no, that is something I decide!” and held signs demanding “legal, safe, and free abortion.”
Their attempts to set fire to the city’s cathedral were impeded by the shutting of the gates in front of the structure, but attempted to set fire to the gates themselves, until they were repulsed by police.
Are the police forces even allowed to oppose the Will of the Vulva? I don’t think they are. These feminists should examine their feelings in case what the police did was a form of rape and promptly denounce it, because it certainly looks like a form of rape under current year and first world standards.
The women and girls, some of whom seemed to be teenagers from local high schools, wore green headscarves and shirts, many of them hiding their identities by covering their faces. Some wore witches costumes or dressed as nuns in acts of mockery of the Catholic faith. Others held red flags with the communist symbols of hammer and sickle.
In Guadalajara, where this reporter witnessed much of the march, many sprayed buildings with pro-abortion graffiti, including at least one church in the hours before the march. Some simulated perverse sex acts in front of an elderly man who called out “Viva Cristo Rey.” Others attacked a reporter for the eminent newspaper El Universal and damaged his camera. The reporter, who wished to remain anonymous and said he was merely doing his job in covering the march; organizers had previously warned that male reporters were not welcome and might be attacked.
The women and girls call themselves “Marea Verde” (“Green Tide”) in imitation of a feminist pro-abortion movement in Argentina that goes by the same name, and which called for pro-abortion demonstrations in multiple countries to achieve the legalization of the killing of the unborn.
As LifeSite has reported on many occasions, similar feminist marches in Argentina have repeatedly resulted in attacks on Catholic churches and on the Catholics who have lined up to defend them. In March of this year such rampages occurred in Argentina, Spain, and Uruguay, where berzerk feminists also sought to set Catholic churches on fire and chanted anti-Christian slogans. Other similarly violent and vandalistic marches have been taking place in Mexico City in recent weeks.
Argentina’s “Marea Verde” is also known to do this kind of stuff.
No consequences, yet they are the oppressed ones.
Jaime Cedillo, president of the Jalisco division of the National Front for the Family, noted the sharp difference between the violent and aggressive feminist march and his own organization’s peaceful march the week before, in which an estimated 250,000 people demonstrated in favor of life and family. He believes that the feminist Marea Verde organizers, who were from other countries, managed to obtain access to local public and private schools to ideologically indoctrinate the students and to incite them to join a movement they don’t fully understand.
“In reality, these are international movements, definitely, and here we could see the infiltration of foreigners, that’s a fact,” Cedillo told LifeSite. “They riled up students from high schools. We could see many young women, many young girls, who don’t yet have the ability to be taking this type of attitude, and we can see how excited they are, shouting, very loud, that really doesn’t correspond to a demonstration of this kind. They’re ideologically indoctrinated, and convinced of a cause that they don’t even understand.
“But in any case it is an international expression, which is seeking to position gender ideology, and particularly, to introduce abortion in all countries. We shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that abortion is a big industry, a big business, and there are international forces that seek to impose this in our country as well,” Cedillo added.
Women are not going to change their minds about this if you show them some science or reason why their “fetus” is human and the same as a baby.
This “oh, if only women understood reality” point of view assumes that men are able to convince women through dialogue, arguments, reason and evidence. This is not the case.
If you don’t change women’s feelings about this, they’ll just dismiss every argument against the killing of babies with “I don’t care, it’s my body” or whatever.
The process of persuading women has to focus on changing what they feel and how they feel about stuff. Their limited capacity to reason is just a tool that they have to reinforce what they feel, and what they feel is based on the circumstances they’re put through.
Women in the West are objectively privileged yet they think they are oppressed because they feel oppressed, and they feel oppressed because they have too much freedom. You could think of it as a kind of paradox, but the more freedoms women have the more oppressed they feel because the more freedoms they have, the more stuff they’re supposed to do and they are biologically averse to responsibility and expectations.
It just stresses them out.
They feel the most free when they are objectively oppressed because most of the weight of responsibility and expectations is off of their shoulders.
