The Empire's New Threats

Interesting editorial by José Padrón González, a priest and social activist, in today's (4 Jan) edition of La Jornada (Mexico). He says Mexico is facing a new threat from the empire (meaning the United States). He writes:
With great surprise and incredulity we unhappily witnessed the triumph, as they call it, of pomposity and arrogance, of hatred and racism personified by a business magnate, the truest representation of the most powerful imperialism. And the whole world shook. What's next, we all wonder.
(Con gran sorpresa e incredulidad vimos descontentos cómo triunfó, según dijeron, la elección de la prepotencia y la soberbia, del odio y del racismo en la persona de un magnate, el más fiel representante del imperialismo más poderoso. Y se sacudió el mundo entero. ¿Qué viene ahora?, nos preguntamos todos.)
He calls on Mexico to improve its social justice internally, as a response to what he sees as increasing insults and threats to the nation of Mexico and to Mexican nationals living in the United States.
