Now why does Florida feel different in the US? Ad why is this guy pro Catalan independence? Spain is a country and that means unity, not the opposite. Catalonians don't think being part of Spain is beneficial for them; and they pact with the government for privileges. Which is all very good, but how about other communities? Other communities have none of that. I call that discrimination. So for all I care, they can leave. One observation: the Crown of Aragon was created in the 12th century, by means of the marriage between Ramon Berenguer IV, Count of Barcelona, and Petronila of Aragon. And yes, it was in the 16th century that the concept of Spain existed, only after joining the kingdoms of Aragon and Castile together; with the conquest of Al-Andalus, which was completed in 1492, same year as Columbus' arrival in America; and the later annexation of Navarre. This is why Isabel is not the Queen of Spain, but of Castile, which is the territory over which she reigned before marrying King Fernando of Aragon. Spain did not exist yet.

Perfect example of ignorance, stupidity and silly jokes. Catalan nationalism is deeply racist, intolerant and opposed to democracy. As for taxes, obviously he is not well informed. Aswell as he lies about history. So sad to watch an ignorant talking so much bullshit.

If you want to talk about this subject get your facts right from a serious source and don't embarrass yourself repeating ridiculous pro-independence propaganda. These people have gone so far as to suggest that Columbus and Cervantes were both Catalonian, for an example of just how deluded they are. How about if one of the non-original 13 states unilaterally decided to declare itself independent because once it wasn't part of the USA. Or if one of the original 13 states declared its independence because that territory existed before the USA was created. Oh, yeah, right, I'm sure America would be alright with that, no problem... A nation's Constitution is its supreme law, it is there to be obeyed and respected by all. There are no Catalonian political prisoners in Spain. In Spain there are Catalonian politicians who are prisoners for breaking the law, specifically for sedition, though it is highly probable that they should have received a much harsher punishment for rebellion. If anything, Spain has shown a great deal of patience with these people time and time again.
So that's why people keep asking me if I want indépendance when I tell them I am from Barcelona. I'm like: How the fuk u know about Catalonia and independence?

One correction it wasn't Isabel of Spain it was Isabel of Castile and when she married her husband is when Spain was created, and Catalonia was one of the initial part of Spian and one of the region that was better been treat in Spain history

Look, I understand these people have to entertain their viewers, therefore making fun of everything. Also people from the United States are the only intended audience. But after seeing this kind of misinformation and ignorance I really understand why everyone there thinks we are primitive people still living in shacks. Also I hate the way he gives advice like if their country had existed more than 250 years. Not that I’m proud of my country, actually there are a lot of ignorant people here too. But please don’t make it worse, we’ve got enough with what goes on here.

Note how all the comments that state that he doesn't know what he is talking about come from people who I presume are spanish by their nicknames. You wouldn't even recognize that you have made an historical mistake with Catalonian even if the rest of the world told you that. It doesn't matter the independence is written in the stars and is a consequence of our past and all the stupid and arrogant actions taken by the Spanish government. Whether you like it or not it will eventually happen.

Freedom of speech is one thing. But talking without any idea of what you are talking about and with a total lack of respect for Spain is quite different. But hey, at the end of the day it's all a matter of making noise to make more money, right?

Remeber only 50% of Catalans want independence. So declaring independence is not morally ok, its illegal, and the people where never properly asked. Basically its like if California wanted independence because 50% of them though they were too rich and they were giving hand outs to the rest of the USA. Its actually quite embarrasing.

Aaaaaaan they are so sweaty that Americans are just English folk who moved from the isles and were angry Beacouse taxes. There are no true natives American anymore. Well, there are. The British only killed like 95% of them. And the call us murderers when almos 60-70% percent of today's South American population is of native race. Becouse we did not slaughter the natives, even if England and France and all of them would say otherwise. But hey, let the lies be told. P. D: YEAH FUCKERS, WE GOT A KING! DEAL WITH IT ALREADY.

hey guys... some facts about this topic.... 1- +20% of the GDP from +20% of the population in the country it´s not a mystery, specially cause they had most of the industry for many decades... so in fact it´s pretty low GDP percentage. 2- they never been independent, they were part of the kingdom of Aragon... read history first Sr. 3- not "own culture", I challenge you to cross provinces and find any difference. 4- own food? every corner of Spain it´s got a million dishes so not much of an achievement. 5- dictator franco cancelling .... DANCING????? are you serious hahahahaha, regional dancing /music was one of the few things the country had after the war and was 24/7 promoted in a way to UNIFY people. 6- I guess this happens when somebody who has no idea about the country talks about it from a teleprompter after reading a couple of articles. 7- may be a comedy show but damn it´s bad at facts.

Totally misinformed and ignorant cover of the story. Let's talk about bullshit but let's forget we have a constitution from 1978, after Franco died, that Catalans voted for massively too. Let's forget the high constitutional tribunal already told the catalan government that the referendum was illegal (although no big consequences came from it). There were consequences only after the regional government declared unilaterally independence...sort of. The very next day, Puigdemont fled the country to Belgium as he knew what he was doing was illegal from the start. Dissapointed to say the least on the show.

Ya pero si dan tanta información tergiversada y nos llaman fascistas cuando EEUU puntúa peor en todos los indices de democracia, se te hinchan un poco las pelotas, eso por no hablar que fue un referendum donde quienes lo convocaban, contaban los votos, eran miembros de las mesas eran los mismos, sin interventores de otros partidos en las mesas y ninguna garantía democrática, Franco hizo dos referendum de la misma manera y eso no lo hace un democráta.
