Tit for tat … “In 1946, Pres. Harry Truman appointed Jesús T. Piñero as the Governor of Puerto Rico.
In 1948, Piñero returned the favor by passing Law 53, aka the Law of the Muzzle.”

WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

In 1946, Pres. Harry Truman appointed Jesús T. Piñero as the Governor of Puerto Rico.

In 1948, Piñero returned the favor by passing Law 53, aka the Law of the Muzzle.

Law 53 made it a felony to criticize the US, to say or write anything about Puerto Rican independence, to sing La Borinqueña (the national anthem), or to own a Puerto Rican flag.

Law 53 violations were punishable by ten years in jail.

Immediately after signing Law 53, Gov. Piñero took a night flight out of Puerto Rico. He could “not be located” for several days.

Here is a photo of Piñero and his good friend, Pres. Harry Truman.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
