To some, the practice of bullfighting (largely an Iberian and French phenomenon) seems needlessly cruel.
But the battle between man and beast in the arena is not a sadistic blood sport, it is a rite. The practice originates with the practice of slaughtering a bull as tribute to Mithras (the God of Aryan warriors) whose cult was spread to Southwest Europe by Roman soldiers. The bull is sacrificed yet honored at a bull fight.
Spanish matador Iván Fandiño died Saturday after being gored during a bullfight in the French region of Landes, the bullfighter’s communications department said.
Video shows the moment when Fandiño, 36, was gored by a bull after he tripped on his cape. The bullfighter then fell to the ground, where the bull hit him again. Other bullfighters quickly picked up Fandiño and removed him from the bullring, the video showed. He had already performed in a previous fight.
Fandiño was taken to a hospital with a wound on his lung and later died, CNN affiliate BFMTV reported.
The Spanish government released a statement mourning the death of Fandiño. King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain also shared their condolences on Twitter, and called Fandiño a “great figure of bullfighting.”
Fandiño was born in Orduña, in the Basque Country. His official biography says he dressed in the traditional bullfighter costume for the first time in 1999 and debuted as a picador in 2002. By 2011, he was performing in important bullfighting events across Spain.
His official Twitter account posted a photo of Fandiño holding a bull’s ear from Saturday’s previous fight and praised his devoted and solid performance. Fellow bullfighters posted tributes to Fandiño on social media.
Juan Del Álamo, who was performing with Fandiño on Saturday, described it as “the worst day of my life” in an Instagram post. He added he will honor his friend by “doing what [Fandiño] liked most.”
The pageantry of the bullfight continues to intrigue both locals and tourists to Spain and Southern France. The combination of finesse and bravery embodied by the matadors are a rare modern example of Aryan virility on display.
Which is precisely why Judeo-Leftists and Catalan cuckolds want it outlawed.
May you be granted a rematch in paradise!
