Posted on 11/20/2023 7:47:06 AM PST by JV3MRC
The Washington Post threw a temper tantrum over “far-right economist” Javier Milei sending a shockwave throughout the world with his victorious presidential bid against leftist Economy Minister Sergio Massa in Argentina.
The Post attempted to denigrate Argentina’s president-elect as a “Trump-like radical” with “no governing experience” who rode a “wave of voter rage” to victory with 56 percent of the vote. The rag characterized Milei’s win as a “stunning upset” over Massa, “the center-left economy minister who has struggled to resolve the country’s worst economic crisis in two decades.” Oh, who knew that voters didn’t want to reward the government bureaucrat overseeing Argentina’s most horrific inflation crisis in decades a job promotion! The Post, behaving like the pathetic excuse for a newspaper that it is, mourned how “Massa sought to stoke fear over a Milei presidency they argued could threaten Argentina’s democracy and way of life.”

Brought to you by the people who consider AOC or Omar or Rashida moderate left at the very most.
He is merely non-globalist. A "threat to democracy" because nobody likes him except the people.
They worry about Trump destroying democracy. To the left, democracy is great, unless the voters vote the ‘wrong’ way. Then it’s a ‘tantrum’.
Interesting. Thanks for posting.
Typical commentary from the WaPoo.
It will be interesting to see how he does. I’m sure Argentina has their own deep state and vested interests that will do all they can to thwart him.
If he cuts government and taxes he’ll be a winner.
Affirmative action in the media!
When do we want it?
Are we gaslit yet...
Are we gaslit yet...
I love how the establishment media gets more and more irrelevant by the day. All across the world, the people are totally ignoring what they have to say.
The Argentinians were absolutely ecstatic last night, too.
You could tell they saved themselves from the fate of socialism and if Argentina turns itself around quickly, other SA countries will follow.
It feels good to know that millions of insane leftists have just become a little more insane.
Of course, with our 30 years electoral follies of Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obamanation-Trump-Biden, and the accompanying economies each produced, we're not in a great position to criticize much of anyone.
WE are the (Neo) Marxists now.
OF COURSE they will hate Miliel.
The left seems anything that is not 100% “lock step” with them to be “far right”.
Most likely he’s a big government radical with a few ideals that do not align with the globalists.
