PAN members protest in the Senate due to controversy over AMLO and Santa Muerte

During the session, the PAN Senators displayed a banner with a photo of the controversial Santa Muerte shirt supporting López Obrador.

Senator Lily Téllez posed in front of it with a rosary in hand and exclaiming “stop the devil” in addition to offering a speech accusing Lopez Obrador of “defending Santa Muerte.”

Téllez demanded that Obrador “respect the secular State, that he stop praising diabolical symbols because it is a lack of respect and an offense to all Christians in Mexico.”

An image published on Morena’s social networks sparked controversy in national politics. “A real man never talks trash of López Obrador,” says the photograph in which a person appears wearing a t-shirt with the image of Santa Muerte.

It is well known in all of Mexico that the cult to Santa Muerte is linked to the cartels and criminal groups.

However, the photo went from being a publication to being questioned by opposition politicians, by the Catholic Church and even in the Mexican Senate, where this Thursday, April 25th, banners with the image were displayed, which caused a debate between legislators.

The controversy began on Saturday, April 20th, on the official account of Morena en X where a photograph was published with the image of the “Santa Muerte”, a message in favor of AMLO and a “Good morning!”

Some users perceived this publication as a threat or a narco-message.

Xóchitl Gálvez, presidential candidate of the PRI, PAN and PRD, joined the criticism and assured that in Morena “No longer hide their ties with the cartels and Santa Muerte.”

A video from several months ago was also shared on networks in which Jenaro Villamil, head of the Mexican Public Radio Broadcasting System, appears wearing the shirt with Santa Muerte and in a message in support of López Obrador. The communicator accompanied the video with the legend #CamisetaDeLaChaviza, stating that the image originates from a meme.
