Garrido Canabal, Tomás, 1891-1943, Mexican caudillo, governor of Tabasco (1921-35). A fanatical anticlericalist, he enthusiastically supported Calles's war against the Cristeros, largely peasant rebels opposed to the enforcement of anticlerical laws. He founded several Fascist organizations that terrorized Roman Catholics. Garrido Canabal was forced into exile in 1935, and his paramilitary groups were disbanded.
