Cristina Kirchner’s Leni Riefenstahl Moment
May 4, 2012 President Cristina Kirchner of Argentina just spent tens of millions of Argentinean pesos at Young + Rubican in New York to advertise a nasty, cynical and dishonest political scam. Kirchner wants you to believe an untruth. Kirchner wants to persuade you that Argentina owns the Falkland Islands when it does not and never did. Certainly the Falklands for almost 200 years always flew the flag of England. Today- for over thirty years, the Falklanders loud and clear state that they choose to stay with the British Commonwealth and want Argentina to leave them alone. Over 90% of the very rugged islanders are full British citizens and want to stay that way. Kirchner does not care.
Here is Cristina’s very expensive and very dishonest ad. She features an Argentinean hockey player. We assume this is ice hockey. The ad shows him training for the summer Olympics
in England. The winter Olympics are not held in England- just the summer Olympics. We do not know if this wanna be Olympian althlete will succumb to field hockey, but we do not believe that field hockey is an officially designated Olympic summer game. We are not sure what he is training for but it is not, as the ad says, training for the Olympics in England this summer.
Nonetheless, the ad shows this Argentinean athlete, this hockey player, running up and down the streets of the Falklands primary town. The tiny pub is their largest and most prestigious.
The Falklands is almost a truck stop on some lost highway: few people, no urban development, certainly no hideous cement high rises and sacred condos so dearly beloved by tasteless Quitenos….but the Falklands do have a lot of sheep. Lost of sheep. The British came with sheep almost two hundred years ago when there was not much else on the Falklands and certainly no Argentineans nor Spaniards nor French nor any indigenous. Now they have sheep.
And Ms. Kirchner tells us that to train for the summer Olympics in England, the Argentinean hockey player must train on Argentinean soil….on the Falklands. Now we do not know if this is a video actually shot on the Falklands- camera crew and all or if this was a photo shop job.
What we do know is that under Cristina’s stupidity, no British camera crew could shoot such an ad on Argentinean soil, let alone the capital Buenos Aires. Cristina would send her paid Chavista bully boys…and now her Cuban spies and Cuban thugs after the British. That’s our Cristina….that is when she is not busy celebrating her theft of Repsol.
Somehow we liked Cristina a bit more when she was publicly stating that her now dead, but then supposedly alive husband Nestor enjoyed better sexual performance by eating Argentinean pork. She told us- and that they were proof- that this was more effective than Viagra.
And if you think that Rafael Correa is not teamed up with dirty Iranians moving businesses through and across Argentina as a shelter/ a cover with Iranian banks and terror criminals, you would be wrong. Thus far, these global criminals have hidden their crimes….their will has triumphed, a la Leni Refenstahl, even as the US president Obama continues, for reasons unknown to deem both Correa and Kirchner as dear allies, leaving Obama and every Latin president to look as dishonest and corrupt as the father of you-know-who, then ambassador Joe Kennedy did in the 1930s declaring that Hitler’s Nazis were also our allies. Then again, Peronista Argentineans were Hitler’s allies. The triumph of transnational criminal will. ….but not for long. Riefenstahl’s propaganda was funded by fascists to sell their political persuasions also. Both the Peronistas and the Nazis had a pretty bad record of protecting humanity while eschewing the overarching great central state and the great laborer, not unlike communists in that sense.
Recall too that in 1938, Adolf Hitler went in to propaganda overdrive using and abusing the Summer Olympics too.
Here is a Nazi bit of propaganda, which is appallingly still in usage today: support the Hard Left/ the communists, the Nazis/ the ALBA/ Montaneros, Peronistas/ Shining Path/Chavistas ….for they alone help the poor of the state and by the state.
The propaganda archives to mislead citizens is in fact a hall of shame. Be a Nazi- help the poor, they say. Be a socialist- help the poor. In fact, like all socialists, they helped their citizens to a very very early grave. You can see more here.
