After last weekend the Conservative Action Political Conference (CPAC), which brought together extreme right groups in one place, the head of the Government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaumquestioned who brought the extreme right to Mexico.

During a press conference, this Monday, November 21, the local president condemned fascism and attributed to the National Action Party (PAN) the arrival of radical right-wing groups in the country, after the meeting that blue and white militants held in 2021 with the leader of the ultra-conservative Spanish party, Vox.

To an express question about his opinion regarding the CPAC, in which the actor participated Eduardo Varastegui As a representative of said organization before Mexico, Sheinbaum launched himself against fascism.

“Fascism is atrocious, the only thing that fascism brings are atrocities that have to do with discrimination taken to the last level, which is annihilation or forced disappearance by the State or, where appropriate, hatred of women” , said the head of government.

The former delegate from Tlalpan explained that these organizations also perpetuate violence against women: “I heard arguments, for example, that it is false that women earn less than men in a company, that if that were true, there would be majority of women in a company; arguments that are neither religious nor scientific, they are hateful; because religion leads you to love your neighbor and science leads you to know the truth of what happens in nature”.

“What they represent is hate, the only thing they defend is themselves, their ethnic group, their own thought. They are against democracy, they are against freedoms. What they defend is hatred, discrimination and atrocity, which is what fascism represents.”

He stressed that he does not agree with these positions, but that it should be observed which groups in Mexico are related. “What you have to see is who brought these groups too, because whoever met with Vox, the Spanish far-right partyhere in Mexico City was the BREADthe PAN brought it, so you have to see who these groups are linked to.”

The aspirant to be president of Mexico asserted that in the capital of the country there is freedom of expression, but that is not why certain expressions should not be condemned. “Latin America has already experienced fascist regimes And we don’t want that to come back ever again,” he reflected.

On whether the capital’s president considers that a far-right party in Mexico or in the capital, he explained that not because “the city is progressive, it is liberal. There may be an agreement on one way or another of doing politics, but very few people in Mexico City defend these groups.”

However, he emphasized that attention must be paid to who is “associated with these groups, so that people make the decision of who they support, who they do not support.”

For its part, a few days ago a concert was held in the city under the ideology of the extreme right, for which reason the event hall where it was held was closed by the local authorities.

Faced with the case, the secretary of the capital’s government, Marti Batres Guadarrama also pointed out that these expressions began after the PAN signed the Madrid menu with Vox. Said document, signed by the PAN coordinator in the Senate, Julen Rementería, is committed to stopping the advance of communism in the world.
