Present-day conquistadorism:

TikTok captures an angry mob booing a tourist who climbed a protected Mayan pyramid in Mexico: 'lock her up'
The woman can be seen walking up the pyramid and dancing on the steps. She is followed by what appears to be a member of security who gestures for her to come down.

A gathering crowd can be heard shouting at the woman as she makes her way down the steps. At the bottom, she's met by a throng of people who boo her and throw water in her direction as she's escorted away. The chants from the crowd, mostly in Spanish, include, "out," "lock her up," and "jail!"

The caption on the TikTok video reads, "this is so disrespectful… don't mess with my Mexican people."
A statement provided to Insider by Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History confirmed the woman, identified as a tourist, "breached the ban to access the steps of El Castillo, affecting the operation of the site."

"White" colonialists never believed that laws in "non-white" countries apply to themselves:

Oh, but haven't you heard?  She's special -- the rules don't apply to her.

let me guess..she is an influencer???  Thinks rules does not pertain to her??

And False Leftist commenters still do not understand Ahimsa:

Two wrongs don't make a right. She was wrong in climbing, but people are wrong in the violence they showed and even assaulted the woman by pulling her hair. Violence never solves anything and we live in a world that promotes violence on a daily basis.

She wasn't smart, but there was no need for physical confrontations. Very uncalled for - as if that was going to make the situation better.

She needs to receive the Otto Warmbier treatment.
