Everyone likes to claim free speech even when they are spouting fake news, that's the trouble. Of course there should be free speech, but half the time it is simply not true what people say, there are no facts , just emotions. Then they hide behind the free speech arguement while stirring up xenophobia with untrue, provocative comments. Should it just be a free for all for whatever the hell anyone wants to say, even though there is no truth to their comments, and they insight more animosity and hatred?Gloria wrote: ↑Tue Jun 18, 2019 9:11 pmWould anybody dare to make any comments in a world of contradictions and hypocrisy where the right to express yourself is constantly oppressed and labeled as discriminatory, xenophobic or racist. Not matter what you do or say, in favor or against especially in immigration issues will always be considered offensive and in some cases even "inhuman" by the general public however behind closed doors is completely different. Freedom of speech is gone forever? or probably never existed? And because of it, little groups are raising their voices of discontent.Chile was not ready for this unfortunately invasion. Chile´s a poor nation. In Santiago are trying to "keep up with the Joneses" in the meantime in towns and small cities there are 1000´s of families without homes, electricity or basic necessities, health institutions are "dead on arrival" and the list goes on and on and the gov. is giving priorities to the avalanche of poor, unskilled immigrants that are paying zero taxes and taking advantage of chilean "benefits" haitians in particular. They are not even capable of learning the hosting country´s language and interpreters have to be hired or demanding that some institutions learn "creole"....that´s what´s called to have big balls.....and speaking of balls they are already procreating like rabbits.....and for that reason chileans are pissed beyond comprehension. Some are saying in public...." they are human just like us"... behind doors.."but don´t bring them to my neighborhood". Immigration will not be affected, correct but at least the flow was slowed down due to Piñera...thank you Mr President.tiagoabner wrote: ↑Mon Jun 17, 2019 10:04 pmAny thought on this news article?

It seems these guys are spreading anti-Haitian propaganda in Valdivia. Not sure how effective that would be in terms of affecting immigration - most likely not at all - but I'm kind of surprised. I always thought Chileans were more of the passive-aggressive types.
That's the issue, not free speech per se.
The whole supposed Haitian backlash is a false flag issue perpetrated by those that can finally air their racist attitudes under the guise of wanting to protect Chile from an invasion, wink wink nudge nudge.
The mentality seems to be "I can finally say I dont like blacks because they are a threat to Chiles economic and social success" It is generally started and stirred up by disngenenious people/politicians who see a chance to hide what's really going on economically and socially, it's a distraction strategy to divide the population and continue the status quo.
You claim Chile is a poor county, well if that's the case it sure as hell was before the Haitians got here, its nothing to do with them, and while people carry on with the victim mentality (they stole my job, they dont integrate blah blah blah) towards immigrants it will continue to be poor . Even though technically it's not that poor, it's wealth is badly distributed and many are denied the same opportunities.
Its incompetence, corruption, greed and general laziness and whatever else by vested interests who want to keep the economic and social status quo by keeping all the spoils and opportunities for the 7 families and those that run the show. Poor? Chile should be one of the richest countries in the world.
