The Mexican authority has handed President López Obrador a priceless political flag: a new and brazen foreign intervention, this time from the United States-Canadian pair. Eager to cause problems for the Obradorista government, that authority urged its North American counterparts to condemn alleged violations in terms of energy to trade agreements signed by Mexico and those two countries, the so-called TMEC (Treaty Mexico). called for. , United States and Canada).
Obviously, this is a complaint without legal basis, as the energy issue is left out of the agreement. But it is not about winning the case, but only about obstructing, obstructing, boycotting, quarreling. A subtle form of black propaganda, of dirty war.
After a few weeks, the case will remain, as they are popularly called in borage water. Or, as Sor Juana would say, a corpse, shadow, dust, nothing.
But, in the meantime, new foreign intervention has sparked outrage from the Mexican people and the resulting civilian support for President López Obrador. If the right wants to undermine it, it has achieved just the opposite. Or, sentimentally speaking, conservatism backfired.
Obviously the right guessed the wrong one. He ignores the fact that the anti-imperialist among Mexicans is always on the surface. And that it only takes a cause, no matter how small, to express itself, to emerge with the overflowing momentum, as it is happening now.
Conservatism believes, as is said of the thief, that everyone is of his position. So he thought that his call for foreign intervention would have the sympathy of a much wider segment of the population. And he was wrong. It only aroused the support of that third of the Mexican population with conservative, pro-Yankee, racist, Creole and finally anti-Mexican views.
And there they are, on that side, not to call it a band, environmentalists and nylon indigenous, declassified and disoriented middle classes, business and financial leadership, corrupt politicians under the patronage of public power and especially under the patronage of prosperous neoliberal regimes. About, as we all know, for more than three decades he partly sold and partly bought the country.
More than thirty years later, conservatism has not understood that only his attacks on López Obrador succeed, as can be seen now, in making him more and more strong.
