Ana Iris Simón

For those who speak Spanish, here’s a video of Ana Iris Simón, a young Spanish writer who says exactly what I always do. She speaks against globalization (“the global village ruined the actual village”), the EU that has proven terrible for Spain, the neoliberal capitalism that creates enormous suffering, the immorality of bringing in immigrants under the slogan of “we need young workers to pay our old people’s pensions” because who’s going to pay the pensions in the countries you strip bare of workforce? She says that young Spaniards need stability, permanence, jobs, and families.

Of course, the Left lost its marbles in response to the speech and is now calling her a fascist. She says that her parents had a better life than she does, so it must mean she’s advocating for a return to the Franco dictatorship. Even though her parents had her in 1990s when Franco was long in his grave.

  1. “her parents had her in 1990s when Franco was long in his grave”

    The left (broadly speaking) seems to be unable to process change and is forever stuck in some repressive past in defiance of reality… in Spain it’s pretending that Franco is still waiting in the wings, in the US it’s acting as if the Civil Rights or Women’s movements never happened….
