It is usual that Isabel Diaz Ayuso say imbecilities, and it is also common for them to go unnoticed, or worse still, to be integrated into political life as something normal or, at most, as an almost funny eccentricity. The president, protected by its related media and a court of businessmen that his business owes him, he knows that his words are hardly penalized or even praised because outrageousness is increasingly being equated with intelligence, as if saying something out of the ordinary was by definition brilliant. The latest occurrence has been to say that “in Madrid there are no social classes”, and this is said by the president of a community that effectively has the second highest average income in Spain but, at the same time, with over a million people living on the poverty line. This past weekend she had the courage to accuse Catalan nationalism of creating “corruption” just a few weeks after she was caught red-handed in the shady matter of the masks in which her brother was involved: anyone else would have opted for keep quiet, after the late Secretary General of his party himself denounced him in public, but she, grown again by the flattery, has decided to be true to her character and act as if nothing had happened. However, with these statements she has managed to cover her previous ones, the ones she made in her patriotic speech on May 2. Because if Ayuso’s statements on politics and economics are fascinating, the historical ones have no loss.

In his speech he left one of the great pearls of the year: “from the Romanization, the Visigothic monarchy, the Spain lost by the Muslim invasion, which makes us persevere for almost 8 centuries to continue being European, free and Western” to later emphasize that “The Spanish monarchy is universal because it is Catholic.” But these nonsense do not come alone, and connect with the fine tradition of the FAES and the extreme right Spanish. Without going any further, last fall Aznar vindicated Catholic Spain against “indigenism”, which he equated with “communism”. Ayuso’s decomposed ideological mush, then, is nourished by traditional Hispanic supremacism, atavistic hatred of the left, and Catholic-monarchist fanaticism, all seasoned with state-of-the-art neoliberalism. That is to say, what may seem like a ’boutade’ is actually a speech cooked over a slow fire for many years by the radical right, to which Ayuso gives a plus of cheekiness with his skillful appropriation of ‘freedom’, with the one that won the elections and a demand for the free market, which consists of covering up the corruption that surrounds her with her pretended love for capitalism. Attention, then, because her imbecilities are actually less imbeciles than they seem. And on the verge of gaining absolute control of the PP in Madrid, it is no coincidence that Ayuso has come out of the cave he got into because of the famous masks and now returns without fear to the usual verbiage: he feels strong and, what is more important, feel protected again. She knows better than anyone that the most important thing in politics is to resist and let time pass. With the masks duly forgotten, it is time to return to the front as if nothing had happened: there is only memory for the last corrupt, and Almeida’s cousin has served to cover up Ayuso’s brother. It is even possible that we will soon hear the Piqué on duty telling us from here that he is envious of the vitality of Madrid against the decadence of Barcelona.
