Unrest Signals Civil War II in Spain

Evidence suggests that Spain’s far-left socialist regime, a coalition of leftists, is giving the green light to far-left violence set to provoke the conservative right. If successful, the strategy could lead to Civil War II in a winner takes all tussle.

The arrest on Feb. 16 of artiste Pablo Hasél by Catalan police prompted a wave of violent riots by extreme left-wing groups, causing widespread damage, particularly in Barcelona and Madrid, and leaving scores of police officers injured.

The rapper’s arrest was in connection with the lyrics of his songs in which he provocatively praises extreme left-wing terrorist groups. Among the insurrectionists arrested on Wednesday, Feb. 17, a majority belong to vicious ultra-left groups similar to the notorious Antifa and Black Lives Matter groups.

The government coalition led by Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has come out in support of the violent rioters. Pablo Echenique, spokesman for the Unidas Podemos group in the Congress of Deputies, expressed his full support ‘to the anti-fascists who ‘demand justice and freedom of expression in the streets’.

At first, such support failed to draw condemnation from the governing Socialists. Far Left Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez remained silent. Only the leaders of the centrist Ciudadanos party, the centre-right Popular Party (PP) and right-wing Vox party condemned Unidas Podemos’ attitude. Only on Friday did Spain’s Prime Minister, Sánchez, timidly condemn the violence.

MEP Hermann Tertsch, from the right-wing Vox party, sitting in the European Conservatives and Reformists group together with the Polish Law and Justice Party (PiS) and the Italian Fratelli d’Italia party, says:

‘We see in Spain some absolutely unusual scenes in a democracy for Western Europe. We see brutal violence and assaults on the streets, violence. This insurrection is encouraged by the government. This had not been seen in Spain since the Republic (Spanish Civil War 1935-1939), since the war (World War II 1939-1945), since a government that also included communists and socialists pursued all those who did not think like them.’

The Spanish MEP was referring to the Popular Front government in 1936 and the left-wing violence that led to the Spanish Civil War which opened the way to Francisco Franco’s governance, who governed Spain from 1939 to 1975.

This was after an event held on Feb. 6 when Vox supporters were assaulted by eggs, firecrackers and stones hurled by several hundred pro-independence and left-wing activists. Several Vox supporters were injured and the Vox campaign van was seriously damaged.

According to Vox leader Santiago Abascal, members of both Pedro Sánchez’s government and the Catalan pro-independence government are encouraging violence. Many opposition politicians remain silent. But, Pablo Casado, the leader of the Popular Party, did issue a condemnation of the attacks.

Unfortunately, the violence in Barcelona was not an isolated incident. Vox criticised those in charge of the Mossos d’Esquadra, the Catalan police, for doing nothing to protect its campaign, allowing violent opponents to gather nearby. The region is ruled by pro-independence political leaders who strongly despise Vox.

Only on Feb. 11, the Electoral Commission responsible for supervising the campaign, called on the Catalan authorities to take the necessary steps to prevent such violence and to identify the perpetrators. On the same day, Abascal and his supporters saw their campaign meeting once again disrupted by threats from activists who were allowed by the cops to stand within stone-throwing distance in Tortosa, Tarragona province.

Vox also had its account blocked by Twitter during the election campaign, unlike the Unidas Podemos spokesman, whose account continued to function smoothly several days after his enthusiastic support for the rioters on Feb. 17.

In 2018, after regional elections that allowed Vox to enter the Andalucian parliament, the leader of Podemos Pablo Iglesias called on Spaniards to mobilise in the streets to ‘curb the far right’. He said he was ‘proud of those who don’t want the fascists to come back.’ Iglesias is now Deputy Prime Minister in the Sánchez government. Furthermore, the far-left extremist is facing charges relating to the dodgy funding of elections.

During the last national parliamentary elections in 2019, Sánchez made the demonization of Vox the central axis of his strategy to denounce agreements passed by PP and Ciudadanos coalition governments at the local level to get the necessary support of Abascal’s party in regional parliaments.

The Deputy Secretary-General, and therefore number two, of Sánchez’ PSOE, Adriana Lastra, even shouted at a campaign meeting in Gijón, Asturias, referring to Vox: ‘We can call them far-right. We can call them extreme right. Do you know what they are? Fascists! They’re Fascists! May Fascism return to its cave, from which it should never have come out!’ Source

  1. “The region is ruled by pro-independence political leaders who strongly despise Vox.”
    Does Vox supports Catalonia (and its voters) remaining part of Spain??! They should support Catalonia (and its voters) being cut out of their country without delay!

  2. A few years ago I read a book by a professor called 1936: The Last Crusade of Spain. It went into the objective reasons WHY Civil War broke out in Spain; to stop the violent communist takeover. I freaked out leftists in college when I told them I admired Franco. Hopefully the next Franco in Spain is waiting to defeat another communist takeover of Spain. I much admire that young Spanish lady (Isabel Peralta) who courageously pointed out “WHO” is causing problems for our people.
