So Puigdemont declared the Free Republic of Catalonia and a few seconds later suspended it. The effect on the nationalists hearts:
For some believers, it was like… I don’t know, to find out they are actually Spanish!
A tragedy of non commensurable dimensions!
Jokes/retardedness apart, there’s a problem with what happened two days ago: after Puigdemont broke the hearts of some retarded Catalan, he signed off with some other mates and act of the day declaring the born of The Free Republic of Catalonia… and no mention to any suspension at all. This document has no validity whatsoever for it doesn’t have the necessary signatures of other members of the chamber, but who cares, they follow their own rules! but… it demonstrates their true colors.
After having declared the independence, with the support of less than a 50% of the electors (around 40% really), he pretends that he just wants dialog, and some people understand it in that way: political allies are pissed off, the retarded sweetheart (or sweatheart) in the pictures above doesn’t understand it, some others are really happy that he finally steps back and asks for dialogue… but the truth is that he has declared the independence.
Why to do it in that way? some people and analysts were saying days before that he would try to attempt a “rhetorical” unilateral independence declaration so that it wouldn’t be clear what the situation was, and become a country of fact, until they would get some international recognition. This might be true, but what I can see is a cynic that depending on who asks, would say that the Free Republic of Catalonia has been declared or not. Hence the confusion by many people. Why to do so? firstly he doesn’t want to go to jail, and secondly if the government takes any action (and they will), he will get a lot more of support from people who just got the other version, the one that says that he stopped the whole thing and asked for dialogue.
A cynic, a traitor, a liar, a joker, a person who is playing with his region and its people. He’s putting at risk the autonomy of this region (article 155, the card that the government is going to play is about that: retaking the control of a region that is breaking the law consistently).
So what is Mariano Rajoy, the Buddhist (no action man) president of Spain going to do? actually his special skill (not doing anything at all and let things settle on their own), is more or less working out this time. Firstly he’s asked Puigdemont whether or not he has declared the independence. Sounds silly, but it’s a smart movement if you care a bit about people’s opinion, and there are many eyes on Spain right now, and the government has done a very bad communication campaign, especially if compared with what the independentists have done.
After that, the government will ask the local government to stop their madness, to desists on their secessionist attempt. And if they don’t, after 4 or 5 days, everything will be intervened. I think that the nutter on the picture and others will die out of heart attack, but that’s life.
