    Sadly in this interview Democracy Now acted like the Fox News of the left defending this man the way Fox defends Trump. Lopez speaks about a 1992 vow by him and the other FALN members to never use violence. The trouble is that ALL the FALN bombings of innocent civilians occurred from the mid 70s to the early 80s thus this vow means absolutely nothing. All in all 6 innocent people and another 83 were injured by Oscar Lopez's FALN. Neither Goodman nor Gonzalez pointed this out.

    He also said that HE never took part in any act where human lives were in jeopardy. Again an exercise in semantics. How do yo define 'taking part'? He was the founder, trainer and leader of the FALN for crying out loud. There is this thing called vicarious accountability. A leader is accountable for what his subordinates do. Using Oscar's logic Osama Bin Laden could not be held accountable for 9/11 because he didn't pilot any of the planes used in the attack.

    I love Democracy Now but in this particular case they are no better than FOX News. They asked some good questions but they allowed this man to avoid them or trivialize all the innocent deaths he was responsible in NYC and Chicago. He is no Lolita Lebron. A patriot is willing to sacrifice his life for his ideals. A cowardly terrorists is only willing to sacrifice the lives of others. Oscar Lopez and the FALN belong to the second group.

    In every place the Liberals overpopulate, all good things die, and the people devolve into hell.

    The U.S. colonial government of PR has returned its citizens to slavery. Decolonization requires war…this too applies to U.S. colonies all over the world.

    Puerto Rico should have been little cousin to communist China, then it would have been like Vietnam, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong etc…

    He shouldn't have declined. He should have given the right wingers the finger.

    Decolonize, Independence, and Full Reparations for these sweet and loving people and then for the rest of the world.
    The United Snakes caused this whole problem and many corporations there became rich from the islands exploitation. The Government had turned the island into a cash cow, barely putting collected taxes back into the island and its services while pocketing the rest.
