Faln Flim Flam

Here’s what makes me dizzy about the political question over FALN leniency, clemency and apologetics, which has been festering ever since Bill Clinton pardoned a boat load of ’em back in 1999 in order to encourage New York City’s Puerto Rican voters to turn out for his wife who was running for Senate the next year.

FALN wanted Puerto Rican independence.  Yet, the Clintons and Warren Wilhelm are pandering to FALN to pander to Puerto Ricans in New York, i.e. Puerto Ricans not in the place what FALN wanted to be independent.  If they think they love Puerto Rico so much, then why aren’t they in Puerto Rico?

In reality, Puerto Ricans are generally around a two-thirds Democrat constituency no matter what kind of terrorists do or do not have their sentences commuted.  That’s because the Democrat Party is the welfare party and PRs are welfare voters.  They would have turned out for Hillary Clinton in 2000 even if her husband hasn’t sprung the FALN terrorists out of the can.

Also, PRs don’t really want independence, because independence means both cutting themselves off from the American welfare state and removing the ability for PRs in PR to schlep to the mainland to take advantage of even more welfare.  Too, the blue team wouldn’t want it because they want PRs in PR to be able to move to the United States in order to import more Democrat voters.  Especially into swing states like Florida.

The Puerto Rican independence movement in general and FALN in particular were both creations of Soviet intelligence via Cuban intelligence to plonk PR out of the American orbit and into the Soviet one.  Though, in retrospect, that wouldn’t have been such a bad thing, though if it had happened, it wouldn’t have made any net difference on the immigration front, because there would have been some sort of open immigration wet foot dry foot adjustment act provision enacted.

This gives me an opportunity to link once again to a long form review of a book about a forgotten chapter of recent history.
