According to a survey just released by the CIS, more than 90% of Spaniards are tired of political tensions. It can be seen that an environment unsuitable for breathing has been created. Detailed data add seriousness to the plot. Only 11% of respondents attribute the creation of such a climate to the media and journalists. Almost 54% – to politicians and parties, and the rest is lost even in the well-learned equidistant lesson of “all equally”. And now the best part: which side. Wins “evenly”, although with only 11%. Almost the same as Vox. That is, they listen to a series of barbarities that turned Congress into a pack, and only 11% believe that it is the fault of Vox, another almost 11% – PSOE and, wait, 6% – PP. This time, United We Can left it at 5%. The CIS, due to the size and methodology of its surveys, is much more reliable than other demographic companies and does not compromise on this issue. This is the picture of this society.
A terrible image that explains almost everything. Because, far from what the respondents believe, a rigorous analysis leads us to different conclusions. The far right carries tension in its DNA because it is an effective method of agitation, and in the PP it has been a hallmark of identity recognized for decades. This is part of his political strategy. Zapatero was riddled with bullets and insulted in such a way that they started talking about the “pre-war atmosphere.” Facts are measured by their results. Spain would not have achieved the level of corruption that it has achieved, the tolerance for corruption of those who vote for corruption without embarrassment, if the media worked the way it should in a democratic society. A problem that, in conditions of absolute impunity, has grown over time. Now, after a fruitful scouring of the extreme right and a blushing demonization of the positions of the left by social commitment, they see it is time for a decisive step. They succeeded. They are already in Castile and Leon, in Madrid, in Murcia, they want to gain a foothold in Andalusia and already see themselves in the state government. This is a triumphal walk with efficient employees and friends.
The government does not seem to realize the helplessness, the desolation that a progressive and honest society embraces in the face of the situation in which we find ourselves. The main sectors are working to place the government of Feijoo and Abascal in La Moncloa with all the consequences that this entails, and this is a lot. This is not a fair fight in the electoral process, but a collection of bad arts that come together at a critical moment because they did not know or did not want to resist the destabilization movements.
Of course, to a large extent, this reality suffers from unresolved errors. Spain has long had serious problems in the justice system and in the media, which covers a very dark network that has infiltrated the axis of this country. The fact that it seeps through like this shows where the scale of values, the critical spirit, and decency have remained.
He is clumsy – if it’s clumsiness – with the goals that the government under the presidency of Pedro Sanchez allows itself to score in several major ranges. Doesn’t he realize it, doesn’t he want to admit it face to face, or are we right, those of us who have always felt under surveillance in a democracy because of so many and so high-ranking unacceptable concessions?
How is it possible that in a democratic country there is a Council of the Judiciary that has expired for three and a half years? How to get the highest media rating for Feijóo, who sees no rush to renew it? How can this be tolerated without imposing governments on the social majority? The same one I had before the Pegasus mass skating and guilt. What are they waiting for to repeal the Gag Law and destroy the Penal Code that Rajoy and Gallardon did? For the extreme right to operate with these tools? And the same goes for the sinister law on state secrets, which requires at least the declassification of numerous dark moments in our history and thanks to which we learn about the exploits of various governments since the Transition period.
Dozens and dozens of written front pages that reinforce the rest of the media, “news” with “smells” of the same sign, the spread of hoaxes, the lack of context, confirm the painstaking work aimed at disqualifying the Government, hiding discrediting right-wing leaders and even praising them.
The same Lucia Mendez, editor-in-chief of El Mundo’s public opinion section, who says she is once again conducting a “conscience test” against Pablo Iglesias, almost simultaneously released this headline:

‘Ayuso saves the people of Madrid’ (the rich) from taxes, or he gets emotional and cries for the covid dead who couldn’t say goodbye to their family after sentencing over 7,000 of their protocol, as shown by that captivating video that should be put on a noose check with reality.
So, the PP, with Ayuso as a high-ranking representative inside, has a minimal share of the agent of tension, 6%, despite his insults even in the Madrid Assembly itself. Because this is not a political inconsistency and does not allow for any justification.
🔴 DIRECTLY | Monica Garcia, Ayuso: “I’m going to give you two pieces of information. About the words with which you answered my questions: “Bildu, Bolivarians, dictatorship (…) About what you said about me:” that I am in despair, my face is withered …” https://t. co/j7OV9MNKmo pic.twitter.com/99aOAwSFD8

We have witnessed the farce of EU funds for recovery from the pandemic. Trips Casado against the interests of Spain. Sowing doubts about its distribution, to which Feihoo, coveted, signed up. Although in April we were already told that he had such a cute “gesture” with Sanchez.
Luckily, Feijóo had this nice gesture in April. pic.twitter.com/JuiIT4jje5

Brussels was forced to deny any wrongdoing. But this was reported only by the independent press. We saw the guilt… “We can harass the TWE monarchy.” And the anti-corruption prosecutor rehabilitate Juan Carlos I even from commissions on the AVE to Mecca. Show curious voting intent tables with exact gaps. A TVE news anchor stands in front of a panel of quoted phrases that seriously blame the government for spreading the pandemic for not deliberately suspending 8M demonstrations. The report prepared by Colonel Pérez de los Cobos contained so many errors that even the judge who decided to carry it out had to reject it.
Disinformation operates in the propaganda of machismo and the parties that defend it, in the involution of women’s rights. Every measure taken by the Ministry of Equality is criticized and insulted. With Irene Montero at the helm, who didn’t get scared despite opposition even within the government itself.
Every day, in addition to manipulation, they provide us with discouraging news, which offers just the discovery of a device in an exclusive selection. The ones that make the gossips click to know what unpresentable said, I don’t know what about the other. Offerings of newly discovered miracle products or the already overwhelming hidden advertisements of some chain stores. All this takes time to get to know reality. In fact, it seems like a perfectly designed mechanism for hiding important information. And leaves you exhausted. And empty the little journalistic conscience that is.
At this point, it must be made very clear that whoever infects politics with outright lies does not deserve a place in government and that whoever distorts information is not only damaging to journalism but also to democracy. To the whole society. No journalist should hide behind the fact that he should eat, there are more worthy ways to do this than to support projects in the hands of shadow forces. More or less, because every time they appear with more impudence, waving their outrages. They walk with open faces, confident that the whole mountain is now oregano for them. They do not go to the commission or to the court, they are already in their sauce, in their pool of impudence.
History – if it is still collected, when it is with any certainty – will see those covers, headlines, programs and infected gatherings that exalted the real predators of such pressing issues as public health, assistance to dependents, people’s lives. And that they boldly and unfairly fomented any government action, no matter how positive, without missing a single one. It is difficult to understand that people show such a high degree of cruelty to enemies just because of their status. These slanderous cover-ups, these stinking lawsuits ending in dismissal without any consequences, should populate the walls of this dreary democracy to see if any of its accomplices are ashamed.
The problem of the manipulative press has complex solutions, but at the very least it will be necessary not to subsidize those who claim to inform and only manipulate with our taxes. It is imperative that, along with the media that do journalism (this and no doubt others), public television, which has more coverage for broad sectors, be strict. And for society to intervene and realize what it is losing, what is being taken away from it, blinding it with faces, asses, traps, practical jokes and colored lights. That he doesn’t even know who is doing this is tragic.
Draw the future raw. Even PNV, the crutch of the government, is talking about early elections before Christmas. It remains to be hoped that common sense will prevail, but there is a definite and a thousand times publicized danger of sitting on the right – the ultra-right – in La Moncloa as well. Positions in Europe are an attractive direction and relaxation after the work done. And so, throw in your towel in front of the sea, if possible, with springs in your hair, and gazing at the endless horizon. Perhaps with a poem in hand as a way out. About William Ernest Henley, who freed Nelson Mandela in prison and yesterday reminded me of a friend: Invictus. Because there are such things as courage and dignity that even the meanest person cannot take away.
