Alberto Fernández expressed solidarity on Monday night with the leftist leader Myriam Bregman, who suffered a attack with anti-Semitic expressions by the former counselor of the Magistracy Alejandro Fargosi, who is also a member of the political party Valores Para Mí País.
“With deep regret I have read the anti-Semitic expressions made by @fargosi. My solidarity with @myriambregman, a fighting political leader, deserving of all respect, “wrote the president on his Twitter account, to support the candidate for national deputy of the Left Front (FIT) for the City of Buenos Aires.
In the same social network, the recipient of the support responded to the publication of the head of state with a simple “Thank you so much”.
Fargosi had posted, also on Twitter, a discriminatory flyer in which Bregman was identified as “Jewish militant of the Left Front”, accompanied by a phrase that the leader never uttered: “I do not sing the anthem because it does not represent me and because I am from the left.”
“I did not say that,” Bregman clarified this morning in statements to Radio 10, adding that “the idea they want to convey is this of a Jewish militant, is deeply anti-Semitic“, by” a professor at the Faculty of Law and who was a member of the Council of the Magistracy. “
“I am not going to naturalize that they call me a Jewish militant in a derogatory tone because of my surname and my family origin,” said the FIT leader, and stressed that “these things should not be naturalized, it must be deeply repudiated“.
Fargosi himself later apologized, also on Twitter: “You always learn something. Today I learned that if you use someone else’s flyer, some believe that everything you say is endorsed. It is logical. I deleted a tweet because that flyer could be interpreted as anti-Semitic , something that I cannot even conceive or be. I apologize whom I may have offended. “
Anyway, before eliminating the damnable entry, he justified himself before several of the criticisms received, and even held his posture to reply to the President: “It seems to me that you interpret what I say the same as you interpret the Penal Code, President. I trust that you do sing the anthem.”
