He is very involved with the BLM group. His profile picture had a BLM flag on it but then he took it off. Please make your way to the Facebook page of: Concerned Citizens of Miami Springs and you can read more about him and what he stands for. Miami Springs does not need a BLM supporter on council who wants to defund the police. I am not saying that Vincent Medel is the best but he is certainly a far better candidate than Vazquez. Please do your research and do not let him and his merry followers ruin this town.
I'm not crazy he's a relative newcomer to Miami Springs. He's a New Yorker, not a Miamian.
Based on what I have uncovered via the Internet and other sources about Mr. Vasquez' Marxists leaning ideology, I must concede that Vincent Medel is the better choice for Miami Springs, our domestic tranquility and our quality of life.
Vincent Medel is a terrorist! We don't need this sort of person on the city council. He is part of the Proud Boys that he brought into our community. We're just lucky that these terrorists haven't attacked our city yet. "Defendant -- dressed all in black, wearing a tactical vest -- led the Proud Boys through the use of encrypted communications and military style equipment, and he led them with the specific plans to: split up into groups, attempt to break into the Capitol building from as many different points as possible, and prevent the Joint Session of Congress from Certifying the Electoral College results," prosecutors added. As part of their efforts, the group distributed Chinese-made Baofeng multifrequency radios, planned to meet at the Washington Monument at 10 a.m. and intentionally abandoned President Donald Trump's speech railing against the election to get in position to overtake the Capitol, prosecutors said. "Defendant and those he was leading were not present for any part of the speech, because hearing the speech was not in their plan," the Justice Department filing said about Nordean. "While other persons who would later participate in the Capitol riot were watching former President Trump speak, Defendant was leading Proud Boys members on a march around the Capitol and positioning them at an entrance to the Capitol grounds that was guarded by only a handful of Capitol Police officers."
Whoa! VM is making you go mad with accusations!
Vincent has the advantage of being the best known candidate among the 4 people running.
Vincent has also lived in Miami Springs longer than the New Yorkers, Victor Vazquez.
I hope Vincent wins.
Here are a few facts about Vazquez support of BLM.
Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization run by three avowed Marxists — go check. Black Lives Matter has been planning to destroy the police for three years. They’ve finally gotten stupid Democrat mayors to agree with them,”
Black Lives Matter is both a diverse social movement and the name of a national organization — whose leaders include co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who described herself and fellow co-founder Alicia Garza as “trained Marxists.”
Black Lives Matter isn’t about black lives. It ignores the 8,000 to 9,000 black lives taken by other blacks every year in minority communities across the nation. Those black lives, and the lives of African American police officers, don’t matter.
BLM is out to restructure the American way of life through Marxists Ideology under he guise of racial equality.
Those who do not study history will not have learned anything from it and are bound to make the same mistakes of the past.
"In December 1961, Castro made clear what most U.S. officials already believed. In a televised address on December 2, Castro declared, “I am a Marxist-Leninist and shall be one until the end of my life.” He went on to state that, “Marxism or scientific socialism has become the revolutionary movement of the working class.” He also noted that communism would be the dominant force in Cuban politics"
As you can see, that has worked really well for the Cuban people. Why in the world the Democrats are embracing the empty promises of Marxism/Communism is a mystery to me and those who promote it are cancerous, divisive and destructive people who hate this country.
@sanchopanza ~ How many white supremacists are sleeping in your bed? And do they say thank you for your BJ. You fascist lowlifes need to find another country, we're not having that crap here in the USA.
My feeling exactly my little Commie pinko friend. go to Cuba or Venezuela and fly the BLM Marxists flag until you drop.
BTW; is that Garcia's golf kart that the fat man is riding around in?
Birds of a feather. . . . . .
Here is the truth about BLM which is supported by Victor Vazquez.
Visit the Black Lives Matter website, and the first frame you get is a large crowd with fists raised and the slogan “Now We Transform.” Read the list of demands, and you get a sense of how deep a transformation they seek.
One proclaims: “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear-family-structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another.”
A partner organization, the Movement for Black Lives, or M4BL, calls for abolishing all police and all prisons. It also calls for a “progressive restructuring of tax codes at the local, state and federal levels to ensure a radical and sustainable redistribution of wealth.”
Another M4BL demand is “the retroactive decriminalization, immediate release and record expungement of all drug-related offenses and prostitution and reparations for the devastating impact of the ‘war on drugs’ and criminalization of prostitution.”
The goals of the Black Lives Matter organization go far beyond what most people think. But they are hiding in plain sight, there for the world to see, if only we read beyond the slogans and the innocuous-sounding media accounts of the movement.
The group’s radical Marxist agenda would supplant the basic building block of society — the family — with the state and destroy the economic system that has lifted more people from poverty than any other. Black lives, and all lives, would be harmed.
Theirs is a blueprint for misery, not justice. It must be rejected.
This guy looks like un postalita. For a history teacher, he doesn't know jack about Springs and its history.
@sanchopanza, You're a friggin moron, go back to Cuba you idiot f*cking wetback, we don't need your kind here
I see that you are a very well educated Liberal Marxist Democrat who adheres to your party's principles of inclusivism and maintains an open to mind to opposing points of view. . . . . NOT
Don't you hate it when someone removes the veil of BS and shows others what your organization is really all about?
Your boy is a Puerto Rican; can he stay or do you want to ship him back to Puerto Rico?
I just received the mail "vote for me" card from Vazquez.
"As a retired US Airforce Disabled Veteran and the son-in-law of a former police officer, I understand the importance of keeping our families and our City of Miami Springs safe" and that shows as a direct quote from Vazquez; where do I start,
"Retired USAF Disabled Veteran"; you need to do better than that. Was it a service related injury or was it a car crash while on pass that got you "retired" Make public the reports that documents that incident.
"The son-in-law of a former police officer" Did your father in law know that you were a BLM supporter and openly advocating the defunding of the police; Please BE REAL!
"I understand the importance of keeping our families and our City of Miami Springs safe" . That must be the reason that the front of his house looks like a parrot cage with all of the Hialeah wrought iron a-la-San Juan? This guy is a fraud and a Marxists Wolf in sheep's clothing.
"The police are the first responders to a broad range of public-safety issues and serious crime .Therefore I pledge to work diligently with Law Enforcement. . . . . . ."
Ask any of our officers if they believe this crap and look at this guy favorably.
Beware; NOTHING IS WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE.
