The Ponce Massacre

In 1937, on Palm Sunday, the townspeople of Ponce held a peaceful march in favor of the independence of Puerto Rico. The marchers were unarmed men, women and children.

The U.S.-appointed governor of Puerto Rico, Blanton Winship, did not agree with this march. He ordered dozens of policemen and National Guard to stop it, even if it required shooting the unarmed marchers.

Juan Bobo Commits Election Fraud 

SAN JUAN, PR  – Juan Bobo has been accused of massive election fraud in his campaign for governor of Puerto Rico.
 
According to the current governor, Alejandro García Padilla , Juan is appearing before thousands of Christians and telling them to vote for him on Martin Luther King Day.
 
“This is an illegal campaign tactic,” said Padilla. “It violates the division between church and state. But even worse, Mr. Bobo is appearing at strange times, and his face is 30 feet high.”

FBI agents have been sent to 17 churches in San Juan, Ponce and Caguas, with orders to arrest Juan Bobo the moment he appears.
 
“I’m voting for him anyway,” said Maritza Carrión, a deaconess at the Church of the Holy Agony. “I want to see his head float on TV.”
