At the end of 2018 Monica Garcia She was still the president of the Podemos parliamentary group in the Community of Madrid. The Errejonista deputy in the Madrid regional Parliament was about to join the lists of More Madrid. She had not yet starred in that unpleasant episode for which she earned the nickname of ‘gunslinger’ when in a plenary session of the Madrid Assembly, she made a gesture with her hand with which she simulated that she was shooting the Minister of Economy of the Community of Madrid, Javier Fernandez-Lasquetty. She hadn’t even started to be known by the acronym MeMaattending to the definition of herself as a doctor and mother that García herself has in her official Twitter profile, although no one escapes the double meaning of the nickname.
For those dates, December 21, 2018, with the pistolera MeMa Seated in the first row of the Madrid chamber on behalf of the purple party, the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) presented the news of its digital dictionary, which for the first time included the word meme, which it defined as “an image, video or text, therefore general distorted for cartoonish purposes, which is disseminated mainly through the internet”. It is a neologism imported from English, which was coined by the biologist Richard Dawkins, and although it may seem so, it has no relation to the words memo and meme, which are synonymous with silly, simple and foolish. Although in the case of Monica Garcia the play on words is obvious.
This Wednesday Mónica García starred in a new comic episode of those to which we are so accustomed. In the morning, he demanded the resignation of the vice president of the Community of Madrid, Enrique Ossorio, when he saw in the far-left press that he had received the 195.82 euros that correspond to him as the thermal social bonus that Pedro Sánchez approved for large families . “Such a lack of public ethics is not tolerable,” she said. It was quickly discovered that she had also requested and collected the same amount at her house, to which she has the same right as Ossorio, since they are also a large family. She took a few hours to react to this discovery and justified it by saying that “it took me hours to find out.”
After requesting the resignation of the vice president of the Community of Madrid, Mónica García explained herself by saying that hers has been a mistake «I do not make any excuse, I recognize the error. I don’t want to charge that, I don’t need it.” Coincidentally, the same thing that she said when in 2021 it was discovered that she had requested to irregularly collect 13,000 euros from the Madrid Assembly while she was on leave from work. She had to return that money and she also said that she had requested it due to “an administrative error”. And since she says that she is going “to study if there is a way to return it to the central government” and Ossorio has defended that she has the right to collect it as a large family and has advanced that, as such, she will receive all the aid to which she can access; he insists on asking for his resignation. A meme.
But the list of far-left politicians who are a meme does not end with Mónica García. In the declaration of assets and income of the deputy and spokesperson for Podemos in Congress, Pablo EcheniqueIt also appears that he has requested and received aid of 3,569.03 euros under the Dependency Law, despite receiving an annual salary of close to 130,000 euros and having been sentenced for not paying Social Security to his assistant. We would have to ask ourselves if it makes sense that, with everyone’s taxes, we subsidize the rich for the purchase of a latest-model electric car, aid for the dependency of someone who earns 130,000 euros a year, or the payment of gas for a deputy who lives in an attic with views of the Retiro. But the ones who should be the most silent are precisely the left-wing politicians who make electoral propaganda with all that aid, ask for it for themselves and then criticize the others.
