Following the elections held in Catalonia on February 14, 2021, the political landscape in the northeastern region of Spain is dramatically changed. The conservative Vox Party significantly over-performed election expectations as it became the fourth most powerful political force in the region, and seized the hegemony of the right.
RAIR Foundation Despite coordinated efforts of obstruction orchestrated by powerful left-wing elites, anti-constitutional separatists, illegals not invested in Spanish culture or history, and more violent left-wing groups, the Vox Party won its first seats in the Catalan parliament.
In their debut in Catalonia regional elections, Vox gained 11 parliamentary seats, formed their own parliamentary group and managed to gain the leadership of the right. The Vox Party now has more seats than the two most well-established conservative parties combined, Ciudadanos and Partido Popular (PP).
Vox’s rise has been fueled by its uncompromising stance against Catalan left-wing separatists after they declared independence from Spain in 2017. Vox vowed to enact constitutional reforms preventing the territorial disintegration of Spain.
Thanks to the uncontrolled Islamic immigration to the region, Catalonia not only has the highest Muslim population in Spain, but also the largest concentration of radical Muslims in Europe. For more than a decade, the American government has considered Catalonia “a prime base of operations” for Islamic terrorists.
As reported by Gatestone, “the Muslim population of Catalonia is higher — as a percentage of the total population — than the Muslim population of Austria (6.9%), Britain (6.3%), Germany (6.1%), Italy (4.8%) and Switzerland (6.1%), according to estimates by the Pew Research Center.”
Mass Islamic immigration has been a key component of the Catalan independence movement for decades. The left-wing leadership bribed Muslim immigrants into voting for Catalan independence with mega-mosques and free healthcare, among other things.
Meanwhile, many of the Muslim voters have only supported the separatist movement as a means to establish Sharia in Catalonia. Abdelwahab Houzi, a preacher in the Catalan city of Lleida revealed how Islam could conquer the region when he declared:
“Muslims should vote for pro-independence parties, as they need our votes. But what they do not know is that, once they allow us to vote, we will all vote for Islamic parties because we do not believe in left and right. This will make us win local councils and as we begin to accumulate power in the Catalan autonomous region, Islam will begin to be implemented.”
The Vox party and their leader Santiago Abascal, by contrast, has called for the complete abolition of Spain’s regional autonomy system and the outlawing of separatist parties. Abascal slammed the latest violent, politically motivated attacks towards his party and its supporters in a powerful speech. The leader condemned “the Government of Spain and the Government of Catalonia” for inciting and condoning violence against his party.
Below is a clip from Abascal’s speech:
Back in 2018, the regional elections in Andalusia put an end to 36 years of uninterrupted socialist rule in the most populous region of Spain and laid the foundation for a new right-wing coalition that includes the anti-Islam/anti-Muslim immigration party: Vox (“voice,” Latin).
Founded in 2013 by Santiago Abascal – a 42-year-old Basque who prides himself on traditions such as bullfighting, hunting and carrying a Smith and Wesson gun – Vox is now part of the country’s political establishment after winning nearly 11 percent of the vote and 12 seats in the regional election. Its plan for the region is called the “reconquest” of Spain, alluding to the Reconquista period, when Christian kingdoms reclaimed Muslim-held territory across the Iberian peninsula in the middle ages.
