Not so long time ago, during Zapateros’ mandate (the former socialist Spainistan President), the Partido Popular (PP) and its more ultra-fascist line decided to critizise the lack of defense of the Spanish identity by its government. This was theoretically based on his weakness (they called him “bambi”) in several key issues: an excessive position for dialogue in foreign policy; a too opened management of the Catalan and Basc nationalisms, or his isolation within the
starting the financial crisis. The
conclusion by the more Castellan-Spanish Extreme Right was always the same:
Bambi-Zapatero has diminished all what is related to the grandious concept of “ ” and of “being
It is absolutely amanzing to see now how in less than 6 months in power, Spain has never before been so directly and viscerally attached, till the point of ridiculing both internally and specially internationally, in many aspects, events and fronts. We are going just to focus our attention in those more histrionic, presenting them the more to the less serious:
Foreign policy. During the recently done French elections’ Campaign, Mr. Sarkozy dedicated a sustainedand systematic aggressive narrative against the “Spainof the socialists”, trying in this way to attack its rival, the Frenchsocialist Holland. Sarko had no mercy with Spainistan unemployment rates, corruption and the Economical Apocalypsis, not precisely helping the government of Rajoy (also liberal) to improve their public image for the financial markets. No news from Rajoy.
rose up in front of the megalomaniac Spanishness of the PP’s ultra-right. First,
Argentina, with the public
nationalization of the Spanish monster gas company Repsol-YPF;
afterwards, with the nationalization of the Spanish electricity company Red Eléctrica
Española. Both gave us two direct punches not only to the Economy, but also to the
Spainistani Foreign Policy. No news from
García-Margallo (the Spainistan Foreign Policy Minister) and some pathetic news from José Manuel Soria
(the Spainistan Minister of Industry). Bolivia
National policy. As we already said in our previus POST, the ultra-right Esperanza Aguirre tried to politicize a sportive event when she attacked directly the identity of the Basc and Catalan nationalisms, besides counting with the complicity of the Spanish TV, that tried to manipulate the reality in order to hidden the whistling against the Spanish Hymn. The final ended up with the senyera and ikurriña (Catalan and Basc flags) tied up together in brotherhood against the most rancid and aggressive imperialist Spanish nationalism. No news from Esperanza Aguirre.
Finally, in sports, and again with our French friends, a campaign was done with the puppets of Canal+ (guiñoles in Spanish), attacking and questioning the successes of Spanistan Sport (in soccer, tennis, cycling…), suggesting in a sharp and direct way the use of illegal drugs by Spainistan sportsmen (SEE VIDEOS BELOW). Also, in society events, last weekend took place Eurovision, in which Spainistan was once again object of fun by our English and Dutch colleagues; they suggested that given the Spanish economical situation, our representative was kindly asked not to win the competition as, in case this may happen, Spainistan would not count with money enough in order to organize Eurovision next year…
Curiously enough, these two last events DID genrate a reaction from the government of Spanistan!. The question of the puppets became a question of national interest, with the Ministers of Interior and Foreign Affairs doing public statements about it, aggressively saying that a letter would be sent to the French Government (whilst nothing was done related to the shameful statements of Sarkozy!!!). For Eurovision, the reactions by some Spainistan Television shows affiliated to the PP have gone beyond xenophobic violence in their speeches…
It is impossible for us to add something else. This is the level of politicians, identity and representation of Spainistan.
A group of hurt former Spaniards.
