Young, dumb and full of … it

9 March 2012

Our young conservatives in action:

The Federal District Assembly hosts the “Parlamento Juvenil” every year, a moot assembly for the various political party’s youth wings to not only present some talking points to their party elders, but to audition for a possible future role as potential candidates for public office.

Juan Pablo Castro, a PAN activist from Jesuit-run Universidad Iberoamericana, certainly made an impression… but probably not one that bodes well for a future career. Yeah, attacking Lopez Obrador is good for your PAN creds, but his diatribe on abortion and same-sex marriage, laced with words like “faggot” (jota) got him pulled off the podium. Maybe he does have a future in politics, managing to tweet a non-apology for using words that”may have been” offensive… although I think young Señor Castro may have a a better future in another field of political endeavor… with his mouth, he might make … oh… Cardinal of Guadalajara some day.

    The right in every country seems to have a pretty good grasp on hatefulness, bitterness, divisiveness, stupidity and utter lack of intellectual argument. As the right has slid further right (wherever) they have abandon even attempting to “think” and propose rational policies (even if based in RW views), and simply defaulted to ugliness.

    That pretty much sums up the right to me these days: ugliness. Prejudice. Old thought patterns that sound antiquated, even when spoken by a young pendejo such as this one.
