The obtuse and the masks. Cartoon of 20/06/2021 in CTXT
It goes without saying that the turra that began with the announcement of the pardons for the prisoners of the ‘procés’ is going to climb to the top of our skulls to climb them and trample every neuron it finds.
When this coincided with another announcement, that of the imminent end of the obligatory use of masks in the open air, in El Mundo they came up with this headline of front page that it is over tontolar.
Headline: “Sánchez edulcorates pardons with end of masks”
This bizarrely worded monstrosity is the editorial. The collective opinion of the media is nothing more than an absurd and infantile blunder.
You know, there are still some who believe that if something is written in big letters it is true. Nor is there any trace of an intention to fix it in the subtitle.
However, Pablo Casado doubled the bet by rewriting the nonsense to add a stupid question.
He thus demonstrates that he is unbeatable when it comes to obtuseness. He manages a Max Mix of unconnected concepts that delights his fans and makes them dance like crazy.
The vice-president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juan Marín
, did not miss the opportunity to keep quiet either, and put that traditional intelligence-killing “but”.
“It is always good news that once and for all we can stop using the mask”, but he criticised
Pedro Sánchez’s announcement as “a smokescreen for pardons”.
It was a day for spinning masks with pardons and repeating a lot of nonsense. That was the party’s way of doing it. Elías Bendodo, Minister of the Presidency, Public Administration and Interior of the Junta, who was at a regional meeting of the PP in the Costa del Sol he snuggled in in his own way to the party:
“A smokescreen or not, with the one that is falling with the pardons there will be no mask that will cover the mouth to keep talking (…) There will be no mask that will cover the mouth to keep talking about what is this aggression to democracy, which are the pardons that the Sánchez government intends”.
Others, from the embers of what they say was a party, took advantage of the nonsense. Guillermo Díaz, spokesman for Ciudadanos in the Health Commission of the Lower House, said at a press conference in Malaga:
“They are using this announcement” (about the masks) “as a smokescreen to cover up the pardons”.
There were a few others who followed in the wake of the melody of this flute for the obtuse, but I don’t want to take up any more of your time, as you will have plenty of other nonsense to read.
