Is Chile fucked?

Posted: December 28, 2019 in News, Politics, Stupidity, Uncategorized

It is my conclusion that Chile is, indeed, fucked.

The disparity between older and younger generations’ mentality is wide and unbridgeable. The poor refuse to pick themselves up and improve their own lives without outside assistance, and, in fact, find it quaint to resist help— instead finding some kind of reverse-psychological Newspeak “pride in poverty.” The rich simply leave for greener pastures. And the middle class are far too nonconfrontational to pick any sides. Or too busy thinking that they are poor when they are not. The “ghetto mentality” has really taken hold in Chile.

Previous protests have won a plebiscite vote to create a new constitution in April. That should have appeased everyone. Such a monumental thing has not been seen in Chile, let alone worldwide, since the famous “NO” vote of 1988 which ended Pinochet’s dictatorship. Chileans should be happy that they even have this ability, because other countries do not (and when it happened in the USA, the dissidents were summarily paved over into the bloody soil).

The moment to decide their own destiny is right there on the table but for some reason Chileans still wreck and burn their own neighborhoods. So, really, one must ask: what are they still protesting? Or do they simply want to wreck and burn shit?

The conclusion I have come to is that they simply want to wreck and burn shit. They want to pick fights with the cops. They want things to escalate into fatal encounters with the police. They want to steal and break things that they have not earned. There are no other reasons for what is happening here, barring major tinfoil hat shit and we’re not going to go there.

The cops are getting blamed by the popular media as being the cause of these major fires but looking at statistics and science and chemistry, my bet is that 99% of the fires set are by rioters wanting to blame the cops. Endothermic decompression of aerosol canisters containing chemicals that are largely non-flammable does not make a bonfire. The one fact that people seem to be overlooking is: these protests are wrecking and burning shit. It doesn’t really matter who is the cause. But I’m pretty damned sure that the shit wouldn’t be on fire if there were no fucking protests. Rocket science 101.

In my opinion, the best thing the cops could do is simply not show up. Best PR play, best strategic play, best military play. Leave these “nonviolent protesters” as the sole cause of destruction, fire, and mayhem, and let the people see who are the true terrorists. Maybe things would fizzle out quickly, as they tend to do when the guest of honor fails to show up at the party.

If not, let them march through burning and looting and when the zombie apocalypse gets bad enough that the people beg for help, then roll in and use real bullets to grind them into a fine red paste. It’s time for Pinochet Part II.

I don’t see that happening, though.  Chileans are too weak, immature, and unrealistic. They would prefer to cut off their nose to spite their face. Despite so much worldwide present and historical proof, abroad and in their own country, they still cannot see that socialism and communism do not deserve (or leave room for) second chances.

More WTF in Chile: an update

So, a little perspective on what’s going on in Chile.

Daily protests continue, albeit slightly less violent than before. Probably because downtown there is nothing left to smash and burn, and most commercial locations have literally welded plate steel over their storefronts.

Once in a while you still catch an underlying whiff of tear gas and that subtle background sizzling in your eye sockets.

Things have kinda calmed down. For now.

Overnight, an entire industry has popped up for private traffic directors. Folks don a brightly colored vest and collect coins from passers-by for the service of directing traffic, which is good considering that most of the traffic lights downtown were torn down, smashed, or spraypainted over by vandals.

Some of these people came under attack by the protestors– how dare they do something good, or constructive, or useful! How dare they try to help themselves or their families! Literally dragged from the intersections and beaten by angry crowds of bolsheviks.

It hasn’t stopped the others, though. And not everyone respects the “authority” of the traffic directors. When there is a protest going on, or rush hour happening, all bets are off since drivers want to GTFO ASAP.

So… what happened to get to this point?

There are several factions at play here:

  1. Overtaxed minimum wage employees and pensionistas (retirees) who feel the pressure of increased electrical costs and commute fares.
  2. Any and all workers (from poor to upper class) who see the future hopelessness of the AFP pension/social security system and believe, perhaps rightly, that their retirement savings will be worthless or completely unavailable when it comes time to retire.
  3. People concerned with the state of health care (honestly I think they are ignorant– health care in Chile is excellent compared to literally everywhere else I have been)
  4. Angry students who want “free” education.
  5. Bolsheviks who want “free” everything.
  6. Angry assholes who just want to wreck stuff.
  7. Angry assholes who just want to steal stuff.

The whole thing really started kicking off when the subway fares went up. By 4 cents per trip. There were mass protests and people jumping turnstiles to show their dissatisfaction. BUT– most of the people doing this were students, who already pay a reduced fare (at a roughly 70% discount).

Some say that the subway fare increase is the straw that broke the camel’s back in terms of social pressures in Chile. However, I disagree. My take on it: I think it was the subway and Carabineros’ general lack of ability to secure Santiago against the mass protest, which the people saw, and decided to take advantage of for their month-long drunken bonfire party. Hey, there’s nothing the government can do, we have free reign to do anything!

“Hey, I’ve always wanted to trash a hotel. And burn a subway station. And burn a church. And oh hey, look, dumpsters. What else can we burn? OOOOH A BUS! WITH PEOPLE! Wow, fire sure is fun to play with!”

And so they did.

What legitimate gripes people had (1, 2, 3) were quickly taken over and/or swept up in the bolshevik terror wave. And that’s exactly what it is. I’ve even heard that it was a planned attack– rumor has it that the PDI knew something was up– but since Chile has a bad history with intelligence organizations, Bachelet dismantled what remained of it during her tenure, and Piñera did not rebuild it (thinking it unnecessary), the threat was largely ignored or was not able to be dealt with properly. Some 80 subway stations were attacked or damaged simultaneously, 11 completely destroyed. Who knows if it was a conspiracy. Occam’s Razor says it’s just angry bolsheviks (4, 5, 6, 7).

A subway ticket office on fire.

What use is it blocking roads and setting fire to private property and businesses if you want government change? You’re not hurting the government, you’re hurting yourselves. I’ve had this conversation so many times and so many people agree with me. The most typical response from the most moderate Chileans: “Yeah we have problems that need solving but we’re committing suicide to try and fix them”

Chileans, as a culture, have a bad habit of not thinking things through. They are a bit naive/immature in their methodology. That much is clear with their behavior lately. The way to get better pay is not to burn businesses and send all those people into the unemployed worker pool. The way to get them to work faster and more efficiently so they can earn more money is not accomplished by burning the subway, putting up roadblocks, and smashing traffic signals. The way to win the hearts and minds of your fellow man is not through inconveniencing him or destroying his neighborhood. The way to keep the purchasing power of your currency is not to cause so much social unrest that you crash its value.

 

WTF is going on in Chile?

According to international news, “Piñera has been having some problems with protests.”

In reality, criminal vandals have destroyed the metro system, looters have smashed and stripped clean countless places of business, and riots of arsonists have been rampaging through cities, setting fire to businesses, churches, and residences.

Police headquarters and personal homes have been attacked, army bases attacked, and roadblocks are set up by “vigilantes” who think it’s fun to force drivers to get out of their cars and dance for the mob. If they please the crowd, they are allowed to pass. If not, the mob smashes or burns their car.

It all started about a month ago because of a 10-cent hike in the public transit fees. People began protesting nonviolently at first by either boycotting the metro or jumping the gates. Then they decided to take it to a new stupid level by wrecking and setting fire to the metro stations.

Supposedly the driving force behind these protests is that the people want constitutional reform. However, of all the people I have asked, “what needs to be changed about the constitution?” not a single one could give me an answer.

Essentially, people are just looting and burning shit because they can. There is no reason to any of it. Every single night, the trash piles are dragged into the street and set on fire by arsonists. The dumpsters are long gone– they burned those the first day. The metro remains closed, and the storefronts that did not get looted or burned remain barricaded and closed. What businesses are open are shuttered up and you have to enter and exit through a tiny opening in the steel plate. Everything closes at 4pm so that people can get home in order to hide from the mobs.

I can’t keep my windows open because tear gas and the smoke from burning trash will waft through.

There is no mainstream media coverage of this at all. And I really don’t know why.

 

Dear Mr. Trump

This is your chance to prove to everyone that businessmen are not scum-of-the-Earth evil masterminds who wring their hands in quiet mirth as they rain destruction down upon the dirty brown people of far off lands, and that we are, in fact, the source of jobs, investments, prosperity, and a welcome benefit to mankind and its quality of life.

It’s hard enough as it is to tread against the mindless current of the media and popular leftist business-hating culture.

You’re starting to fuck it up for all of us. Think about what you’re doing, man.

Shia Leboeuf’s celebretard art installation “He will not divide us” has finally divided us.

It started with Shia himself attacking an attendee and being arrested for assault. Originally created as a “peaceful protest” to “bring people together” where anyone was encouraged to record their statements on a camera which would repeat the video in perpetuity, the street found its own use for things and soon crowds of people started showing up, including those with opposing views.

“The installation created a serious and ongoing public safety hazard for the museum, its visitors, staff, local residents, and businesses.” – Museum of the Moving Image

Opposing views are not welcome in the world of political correctness, and so Shia physically assaulted an exhibit attendee, and, as he was carted away in handcuffs, his parting words of tolerance and peace were, “How are we going to make this shit okay to be a Nazi out here?”

“Over the course of the installation, there have been dozens of threats of violence and numerous arrests, such that police felt compelled to be stationed outside the installation 24 hours a day, seven days a week.” – Museum of the Moving Image

Opened on January 20, the exhibit ran a mere 5 days before Shia’s arrest and was shut down less than 2 weeks later.

“The Museum Has Abandoned Us.” Shia tweeted after the exhibit’s closing, completely ignoring the fact that it is his own fault, and it all went fine until he attacked someone.

HAHAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAAAAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA etc, etc, etc.

 

Celebrity douchebags Shia LeBeouf, Ronkko & Turner have put up a website and art installation at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York, which is basically a rolling feed of other douchebags repeating “He will not divide us” as a protest to the election of President Donald Trump, who took the oath and was sworn in earlier today. They plan to run it for 4 years, or until their wishes come true and democracy is thrown out in favor of some fucked up pre-school logic system where the guy you cheer for always wins and everyone gets a trophy just for showing up.

No, he will not divide us. You fuckwits are dividing us just fine without his help by protesting the democratic process.

Get over it.

Get a haircut.

Get a job.

If you want the Uruguay experience:

  • Take a blanket and soak it with water.
  • Get a filthy dog and soak it with water.
  • Drill holes in your roof.
  • Break half your plumbing, short out half of your electrical system. Not just half-assed breaking, no, make sure that shit’s leaking into the walls and shorting stuff out everywhere.
  • Rip out all your insulation.
  • Then turn the AC down to 50 degrees, and lay under the soggy blanket with the wet dog so you can experience what everything smells and feels like here (Obligatory Mold Smell + dog ass), while you try and get a bunch of disinterested, hopeless, unskilled morons (extra-special drooling short-bus morons) to fix all the broken stuff. Using all the wrong tools (bubble gum, masking tape, and coat hangers get you bonus points).
  • Oh, and pay 3x as much as you normally pay for the cheaper version of the stuff you usually buy.
  • Then fire some morons, and help them sue you.
  • If you want to get around, buy an ancient piece of shit car from 1970 and spend US$8000 on it.
  • Then pay $8 per gallon to fuel it.
  • Call someone to deliver something tomorrow, but then tell him you really meant next week but hey, why not just do it in a month, or not at all, if that’s what suits him. After all, you are a paying customer!

I’m sure I am missing about 500 other things but this should get you well on your way.

No, I didn’t tag this as humor because it’s not really funny.
