The racism here cannot be ignored. The unconstitutionally self-proclaimed 'president' of Bolivia carries a ginormous bible into the presidential palace, saying 'The bible returns to the Palace'. This reference is to the ouster of Bolivia's first indigenous president, Evo Morales.
She previously tweeted (since deleted): "I dream of a Bolivia free of indigenous satanic rites, the city is not a place for Indians, they must go to the highlands or lowlands!" This racist sentiment towards Evo Morales & Bolivia's majority indigenous is a huge part of the #coup.
The 'whiter' and wealthier Bolivians have hated Evo Morales since before he came president, and they have actively tried to overthrow him since. These groups have fascist tendencies, neo-nazi roots (many settled in Bolivia after WWII), and will persecute & repress the indigenous.
They see this as a 'righteous' battle against the 'ungodly' indigenous majority, similar to most white supremacists who use religion to justify their hatred, violence and undemocratic actions. Fascism is on the rise everywhere, and the #BoliviaCoup is its victory.
