This government is not Kirchnerist (or is it?)


The new story of Cristina's followers is to repeat everywhere that it was not she who was ruling these years.

A new

story K

has been advancing at a steady pace and will seek to consolidate and grow in the coming months of this electoral year:

this government is not Kirchnerist.

It never has been.

The strategy for the accounts to close is as follows: the governments of Néstor and Cristina ended in 2015. They lasted 12 years.

It wasn't magic.

That's where poverty began to skyrocket with the Macri government (Cristina stopped publishing those indices in 2013, two years before she left) and everything got worse hand in hand with galloping inflation with the government of Alberto Fernández, who managed the economy at his own discretion. whim and ignoring the wise advice of her mentor, the vice president, who would therefore be

completely oblivious

to the economic and social catastrophe.

What responsibility would someone who stopped governing eight years ago have?

Sooner rather than later in the Kirchnerist iconography, this government - that of Cristina, vice president and

convicted of corruption

- will be as

alien and distant

as Kirchnerism itself perceives the Peronist governments of Menem or Duhalde from a distance.

The story is not new in terms of the times of its formulation -with nuances, it has been hinted at since the defeat in the mid-term elections-, but it is as a

unified general strategy

, with claims of massive scope.

It started from the Instituto Patria and has been spreading strongly at the hands of Máximo Kirchner, Cuervo Larroque, deputy and economist Fernanda Vallejos ("

Alberto Fernández

- whom he had previously called



cannot even beat the figurines"

), time that goes down to broad sectors ranging from the actor Darío Grandinetti (

“I want

Cristina to return

and make the enemy visible”

) to the anonymous militant who camps out on July 9 and, when a microphone is brought up to her, rants against Minister Victoria Tolosa Paz and against the President, although he is quick to clarify, without anyone asking him:

"This government does not belong to Cristina

. "

Did they tell you on the bus, on the way to the march?

On the radio and official channels these days the parade of guests, panelists and militant journalists who

harp on the same idea

is incessant .

This Wednesday's photo of Alberto Fernández with Joe Biden and the negotiation with the Monetary Fund accelerate the "takeoff" process, reinforced by a certain disorientation that caused, on the sidewalk across the street, Macri's resignation from being a candidate.

Cristina took advantage of the fact that a US senator who is an ally of Trump requested that an investigation be made as to whether sanctions apply to her after being convicted of corruption in Argentina to

deduce that she is outlawed


"As you'll see, everything matches everything

," he tweeted.


one story links to the other.

Who will dare to tell her, among her own hosts, that she

is part of this government

and that

she is not banned

because she can present herself to whatever she wants while her sentence is not final, something that will not happen this year?

A government of Alberto without Cristina will be impossible to sustain in the history books -with Alberto adjusting the cabinet to the wishes of the vice president, waging useless battles in her name and handing over to La Cámpora the main

coffers of the State

throughout his term-, but the self-exculpatory imagination is a washing machine of consciences that works, at least, inwards.

Hard Kirchnerism will support this new story seeking to repeat the


hit .

That experience -an idea that Dilma Rousseff passed on to Cristina in 2017- closed them on all sides and lowered the militancy as an indisputable emblem of victimization.

If a court acquits,

did they see that Cristina was innocent?

If a court sentences,

did they see that we warned them how they were going to persecute her?

If a court is not defined,

did you see how they have it threatened?

Used like this,



a tool for perpetual impunity


an armored tunic that covers Cristina with automatic innocence, even on top of the compelling evidence.

The idea of ​​definitively


Alberto's government as if Cristina had never integrated it -even establishing that having chosen him to lead the formula has been an example of generosity that became a boomerang of ingratitude- serves in the double strategy of the other story of Cristina banned (

"They don't let her come back"

, as if she hadn't been there these years) and the operative outcry.

If Cristina were finally a candidate for something -perhaps she will revisit the scenario of facing a judicial future without privileges-, remember:

she had nothing to do with this government.

The problem with the idea is



It is a speech to the faithful, swept away by the first autumn breeze as soon as it steps out onto the sidewalk of the royal country.
