Andrés Manuel López Obrador, president of Mexico, experienced one of his most bitter defeats last Sunday, April 17, 2022, when the opposition voted almost unanimously against his Electricity Reformcausing it to be discarded as it did not have the qualified majority to modify the Constitution.

This caused a wave of criticism from the official political movement, and members of allied partieswho even branded as “traitors to the country” those who voted against the Federal Executive’s proposal on energy matters.

José Ramón López Beltrán, the eldest son of AMLO, probably driven by anger at the defeat of the Electricity Reform in the Chamber of Deputies, decided to open YouTube and play some anti-system songof protest, a hard rock n roll like the ones he is used to from time to time.

He also added some emoji about rays, spotlights, lights, batteries, antennas, satellites and the flag of Mexico, implying that his motive is the defeat of the Electricity Reform. “No matter how hard they try, they won’t be able to stop us.”

Renegades Of Funk from Rage Against The Machine was the first to appear. It is a cover of Afrika Bambaataa, a key MC and DJ for the development of Hip Hop, as well as a peace activist who used art and music as his main weapon of protest.

The video also shows us one or another social fighter of great fame in the world, including well-known faces in Latin America such as the revolutionary Ernesto “El Che” Guevarathe indigenous activist Rigoberta Menchú, or the American peasant leader César Chávez.

In the voice of journalists specialized in rock, such as Mario Valencia, RATM is about “the last great protest band that managed to place itself in popular taste”, in addition to a group of musicians who transmit a spirit of rebellion necessary to fight against conformism and systematic oppression.

The also director of the documentary trapped in metal about the Mexican Heavy Metal scene he warned in an interview with Infobae Mexico that this song lets see the true value that artists have in a society constantly in struggle, where they can come to be seen as great revolutionaries “on a par with figures like Malcolm X”.

For this reason, he considered that using it as a kind of anthem for the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is more like “fall into the rhetoric of exalting your figure” as a politician, which he considered an essential part of the Fourth Transformation (4T).

“A true leader does not seek to impose the cult towards his image, but to act for the benefit of his community,” Valencia assured in an interview with this medium, after considering that the Bambaataa song it cannot be linked to any president interested in “watching over his own interests.”

In addition, his reading about the reasons that led AMLO’s eldest son to dedicate said theme, reversed by RATM, is a “an adolescent attempt to be provocative through music”.

And he linked him, in this sense, because of the rancor he might have for members of the opposition, who recently They exposed him for the millionaire house he lives with his wife, Carolyn Adams.

Like when a high school kid feels misunderstood and needs to show some level of superiority through a song. López Beltrán has been one of the opposition’s favorite targets since the Gray House scandal. Being this object of ridicule and disdain on networks, he uses them to show mettle, ”concluded the filmmaker and music analyst.
