According to the Chile Electoral Service, 62% of voters rejected the proposed progressive constitution in a referendum on Sunday which would have put a strong focus on social rights, indigenous rights, gender equality, sexual diversity, environmental regulation, and, evidently, climate change.
The Chilean people basically said fuck all that shit.
And they’re right.
If approved, Chile would have become a far-left hellhole where the less fortunate would have been fucked over, as it is always the case with progressivism.
Chile’s 36-year-old President Gabriel Boric admitted defeat:
Today the people of Chile have spoken, and they have done so loudly and clearly. They have given us two messages. The first one is that they love and value their democracy … The second one is that the people of Chile were not satisfied with the proposed constitution and, therefore, have decided to reject it in a clear way at the polls.
He didn’t pick up on the third message: go fuck yourself scumbag.
Now, the mainstream media would have you believe that Chileans don’t want a break from the country’s authoritarian past, they don’t want to move “forward”.
They’ve just rejected the horseshit.
