No, this is not a music post. You may be thinking of these guys, Los Lobos, meaning "The Wolves", a decent band who unfortunately are mostly known for their good cover of RichieValen's La Bamba. (I guess only Hispanics can do this - others would be accused of cultural appropriation. Yeah, and take off those silly sombreros, frat boys, andele, muchachos!)
"Los Resentidos" is Spanish for "the resentful ones"*. I learned it recently as I listened to a whole hour interview (by Stefan Molyneaux) of a dude named Humberto Fontova that was discussed on Peak Stupidity exactly 2 months back in our post A Cuban's personal history from start of La Revolución. Peak Stupidity mentioned "Los Resentidos" in a post 3 days later called None dare call them Commies. In case you don't recall, Mr. Fontova is an assimilated-to-Cajun (at least he sounds like it) former Cuban who got out of that country in October of 1961 with his Mom, brother, and sister as Castro and his Communists took the country over. His Dad had been detained but was able to get out and rejoin the family. (That story is in beginning of the interview.)
Humberto Fontova was a 7 year-old, as I recall, when the Communists took over, but I'm sure he got a lot of the story from his Dad too. I have this video starting at 56:09, but nothing is stopping you from watching the whole interview here.
Interviewer Stefan Molyneux: "... and left behind are these baleful, gollum-like resentful people, as you point out, Che, a failed doctor, Castro, a failed lawyer and people who just can't get it together ..."
Humberto Fontova (57:40): ".[in the early years] .. nobody ... well, yeah, they called them [Castro and his radicals] Communistas, but mostly they called them Los Resentidos, the Resentful Ones."
HF (58:04): "I'm here to tell you, probably 80% of the people who joined Casto's and Che's movement in early years had never heard of Marx or Lenin."
I've written the same many times about the modern culturally destructive ctrl-left: It doesn't matter that they don't have a clue about the theories of Marx or Lenin. This concept of "The Resentful Ones" is something I'd only mentioned in the 2nd of the posts linked-to above. I wanted to write a little more about this.
Let me first repeat something from the 2nd of those 2 posts linked-to above, about the timeline here. This Cuban revolution, in the history of Communist revolutions, is not recent history:
Let's think about the timeline. It's been 62 years since Castro's Communist takeover, while Castro's takeover was 42 years after the big one, Lenin's Bolshevik takeover of Russia in 1917. It's hard to believe, but Castro's revolution occurred just 40% of the way in time from Lenin's heyday to today.If you go back to century-and-4-years ago Russia, well, there were likely a hell of a lot of people who had a lot to gripe about. It was a stratified society with whatever middle class it had being pretty dirt-poor compared to the worst of the American ghetto today. Most of society had a good reason to be resentful if they didn't believe the people up in the Monarchy deserved their status. The Communists trying to work their "magic" in 1920s-'30s Germany had lots of people who could have harbored very deep resentments (I know of one particular guy, at least, but then he went in a different direction ...).
When you have a huge middle class like America had up through 25 years ago, it's pretty hard to stir up resentment. Sure, there are the many outcasts in the high school halls and bathroom stalls - be cool or be cast out** - but at some point, one graduates. If you've got your own opportunities, you get that "TECH" job or become an engineer, while the high school jocks become used car salesmen or, worse, marketing executives, and you don't look back. OK, you can go to the reunions with ... well, maybe an escort at the 5 year mark, until you learn something ...
I digress yet again. This is one of the reasons why the Globalist and Communist scum have wanted to wipe out, and HAVE BEEN wiping out, the American White middle class. There are other reasons, of course. Greed and lack of any "noblesse oblige" (see this review of Tucker Carlson's Ship of Fools.***) come to mind. Hatred of competition in business and political power is another. However, if they can make Americans poorer, after all the years of "those boomers" (especially) living large and having a real time, there will be some real mass production of Los Resentidos. There has been, in fact. They are the modern ctrl-left.
In case the reader is just sick and tired of all this "Commie pinko!" talk, well, I'm trying to get a handle on the modern ctrl-left. It would be wise not to let this country go down the same path as Cuba. There are lots of distractions - the genderbending, "pride", black worship, and immigrant promotion are all grave ills of society, of course. They are just all part of the traditional-culture-destroying, society-destroying, work of the modern Resentidos. If you haven't watched, go to at least 58:45 or so, and let Stan Molyneux and Humberto Fontova explain how the situation in modern America is very much like that of the left in Castro's and Che's revolutionary time and place.
PS: I can't roll my "r"s like Humberto Fontova, so bear with me, or keep his voice in mind, next time you read about "Los Resentidos" on Peak Stupidity.
* Yeah, it's probably the easiest language for we English speakers to figure out.
** Sigh ... Rush from Subdivisions if you really had to ask!
