the emperor has no clothes


long live the emperor!


Francis went to the peripheries on January 18th in Lobito Beach (Playa Labito) in Iquique, Chile, home to nearly two dozen migrant slums to celebrate his mess.  Preparations were made for over 300,000 fawning fans but according to television reports only 90,000 (if it was that many) were in attendance.

Here’s a screenshot of the January 17th meeting Francis had with the youth of Chile at the Shrine of Maipù at the Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Carmen in Santiago, Chile.  As one can see the turnout wasn’t very good.




*Thanks to Antonio Socci for pointing this out on his facebook page.



So the question is: 


Do the citizens of Chile not like Argentinians very much?


or 


Are the medias covering up Francis’ unpopularity?

  1. They definitely are covering up for his INCREASING unpopularity. The wedding stunt on the airplane (that we are now discovering was really pre planned, and not a 'spur of the moment impulse' at all) was meant to be a 'quick fix' for this disastrous trip of his. (that they knew wouldn't turn out well) What they may not realize is how transparent he really is.

  2. Don't you know? The Americans are keeping the Chileans in poverty, on purpose! Damn capitalism!

  3. I have lived here in Chile for almost 5 years.
    NOTE: In almost every Chilean joke an Argentinian is the butt of the joke. The Pope in this case, proves this to be true.

    There is a saying here in Chile when asked about his visit:
    Pope Who?
