In a supposed campaign hitchhike in the face of the decline of Together for Change in the voting intention polls, Mauricio Macri took Patricia Bullrich to the stage of the main forum of the regional right, the Libertad Foundation meeting.
From there, the candidate maintained that the coalition to which she belongs is as if “landing in Normandy” to wage “a final battle” against Kirchnerism, and accused Javier Milei of not “having the back, courage and temperament” to govern the country.
“We are not going to run so that a new group, which has rights but is not going to have the back, the courage and the temperament, the strength and the decision to say ‘enough, they are not going to prevent us from governing’, tries to reach the government” said the former security minister in front of right-wing leaders and presidents who ended their positions amid scandals and events of social conflict.
Some of the guests were former presidents Sebastián Piñera (Chile), Mario Abdo (Paraguay), Vicente Fox (Mexico), Iván Duque and Andrés Pastrana (Colombia) and José María Aznar and Mariano Rajoy (Spain).
Unlike other opportunities, the Libertad Foundation’s invitation this time was held in a public building, the Buenos Aires Legislature. This time the forum is called “IInd Meeting of the Freedom and Democracy Group.”
Juan Guaidó, the legislator who for a time called himself president of Venezuela, and the Brazilian senator and former judge Sergio Moro, promoter of the conviction against Lula Da Silva that this year the Court of that country rejected for very serious errors in the process.
Bullrich vs Milei
The presence of Patricia Bullrich as one of the first speakers at that meeting was an effort by Mauricio Macri to position her in one of the most recognized stages of the Ibero-American right and also an attempt to dispel rumors about an increasingly clear rapprochement between him. and the far-right candidate Javier Milei.
Precisely, the leader of La Libertad Avanza was one of the two targets chosen by Bullrich for his speech with a military tone, in which he spoke of “fighting battles”, not avoiding “combats” and “disembarking in Normandy” as the troops did. allies in World War II.
He also reviewed with singular interpretations about “the fights” that Together for Change waged against the Peronist governments of the last 20 years, such as “the murder of prosecutor Nisman”, “the lock law against the press” and “the use of the people’s vaccines to vaccinate themselves.”
The most notable thing about that summary was the accusation against Kirchnerism of “trying to overturn our government (between 2015 and 2019)”, because “their logic is ‘either we govern or no one governs’”.
Macri and technology
The one who kicked off was the Chilean Sebastián Piñera, with a brief speech in which he gave the pass to Mauricio Macri. Standing in front of the lectern, the former Argentine president gave a particular interpretation of this moment in history where there are “more and more dissatisfied and frustrated citizens despite the tremendous advance of technology.”
As if society’s satisfaction had to do with technology and not with the distribution of wealth, Macri considered that the sources of social conflict expressed in several countries have to do with “the amount of information we consume.”
“We are in the era of the revolution of expectations, because part of this technological revolution is the amount of information we access (…) And that uncontrolled expectation has led us to very big crises like the one Sebastián suffered in the fires of Santiago, where there was no common demand,” he said in reference to the massive protests for a constitutional reform in Chile and for the fall of the neoliberal State installed by the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.
“The same thing that the French suffered with the yellow vests,” he added and, showing his cell phone, he added “all because of this diabolical device that has filled us with freedom.”
