This may seem like petty politics, but Melissa Mark-Viverito has moved to take control of Puerto Rican culture in New York and that has larger implications for the city, the state and the country. Melissa Mark-Viverito’s targeting of Taller Boricua to take over the Julia de Burgos Cultural Center, like the Puerto Rican Day Parade, is an attempt at imposing her radical vision on Puerto Ricans in New York.
Melissa Mark-Viverito’s FALN heroes were second-generation radicalized Puerto Ricans. Controlling Puerto Rican culture in New York is vital to repeating the process of radicalization. If the process succeeds, then the terrorist attacks can begin again. That is the monster lurking behind the parade.
The Puerto Rican Day Parade, like every cultural Puerto Rican event controlled by her allies, is about the ambition of a wealthy and powerful woman to indoctrinate Puerto Ricans with her hatred for America.
Patriotic Puerto Ricans who oppose Melissa Mark-Viverito’s radical separatist agenda have an opportunity to speak out and reclaim their community and their culture from radicals who once again want to use their sons and their daughters and their way of life as a weapon against the United States.
