In the double yardstick of the Spanish left, something to which we are more than accustomed, there is a symptomatic and recent case, which has to do with two women, both in positions of power. And where it is evident that for the proges and their echo chambers it is never the what, but the who. They speak out or remain silent based on their petty political views, regardless of the truth or facts.
Ana Botella was the target of a fierce ridicule campaign for her intervention in 2013 before the International Olympic Committee in the Madrid 2020 candidacy, in an Olympic Games that Tokyo finally won, for a phrase that is already recent history of Spain and is part of popular culture and the collective imagination. Although the truth is that during her presentation, she performed in a more dignified manner than other politicians who were not given to venturing to speak in English.
However, since the embarrassment of Yolanda Díaz in her appearance before a foreign journalist, the most sectarian left that we suffer has not said this mouth is mine, nor made any allusion to the act, except for timid remarks to say that Núñez Feijóo does not defend himself in English either. , although the Galician never accepted with a smile a question in the language of Shakespeare while pretending to take notes.
The self-criticism of the left is usually negligible, and no one from the party or those around it has asked public representatives to be better prepared, especially when they have a vice-presidential position and the international media are interested in the Rubiales case, the new horse of battle of gender ideology and its media terminals in the industry of institutional feminism.
The left tends to suffer from a double standard, opportunism and hypocrisy that is latent in all areas of political and social life. Likewise, this past Monday Yolanda Díaz was at the Callao rally convened by the 8M Commission of the Madrid feminist movement for Rubiales’ kiss to Jenni Hermoso, in the same week that more sentence reductions for beneficiaries of the Montero Law have been known and also group sexual assaults, for which they have not made any statement or written messages of support to those affected, since in these cases the representatives of feminism are neither there nor expected.
