Argentina Elects "Far-Right" Anti-Abortion Pro-Gun Anti-China Libertarian as President and the Left Wing Melts Down

farrightargentinian.jpg

Who is this guy and does he have locks on his garbage

Libertarian outsider Javier Milei swept to victory in Argentina's presidential election Sunday, vowing to halt decades of economic decline in a country reeling from triple-digit inflation.

The self-described "anarcho-capitalist" pulled off a massive upset by ousting the populist Peronist coalition which has long dominated Argentine politics.

With 55.7 percent of the vote, Milei thumped his rival, Economy Minister Sergio Massa, who won 44 percent of the vote and rapidly conceded defeat.

"Today begins the reconstruction of Argentina. Today begins the end of Argentina's decline," Milei said in his victory speech. "The model of decadence has come to an end. There is no way back."

Latin America's third-biggest economy has suffered decades of crises under interventionist governments big on welfare that resort to printing money to finance spending, fueling inflation, while borrowing heavily only to default on their debt.

Access to dollars is strictly controlled, leading to a thriving black market for greenbacks, and analysts warn the peso is ripe for a sharp devaluation.

"There is no room for gradualism... or half-measures," said Milei.

Milei's main platform has been a plan to ditch the ailing peso for the US dollar and "dynamite" the Central Bank to do away with the "cancer of inflation."

...

Thousands of Milei supporters waved flags and chanted "freedom" as they celebrated outside his campaign headquarters.

"We are tired of Peronism. Milei is an unknown, but better a madman than a thief," said 50-year-old writer Nacho Larranaga, wearing the blue-and-white Argentina flag as a cape.

Milei, a 53-year-old economist with wild hair and thick sideburns, has drawn comparisons with former US president Donald Trump and Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro for his abrasive style and controversial remarks.
...

Milei had vowed on the campaign trail to cut ties with his country's top trading partners Brazil and China, saying he would not "do business with communists."

At Twitchy, the left is melting down, with the Washington Post declaring that the election was a contest between the "far-right" on one hand and the "center-left" on the other.

The extremist left-wing media seized and pounced on this narrative:

Martin Gurri
@mgurri

I have seen Milei described as "far right" (CNN, NYT), "rightwing populist" (AP), "libertarian" (Reuters), "far-right libertarian" (Guardian), "far-right outsider (BBC) - all these labels blend into a single screechy meaning...

He's planning some budget cuts.

He rails against the "shit neoliberals" and "leftards."



I can't vouch for all of this translation but the few words I picked out here and there do track with the claimed translation.

Abigail Jackson
@abigailmarone

"And since they can't beat us with real arguments they just use the repressive apparatus of the state with loads of taxpayer money to destroy us..."

Sounds familiar?

Apparently the words he's using to describe the left wing are zurdos de mierda, or "left-wing of shit." Or what many call "the shit left" or "shit liberals" in the US.

What's different is that the Argentine leftists held onto power until the entire economy was in total collapse, with inflation running at 140% per year. The Peronist Finance Minister, who was Milei's opponent in the election, campaigned on the idea that he would keep paying everyone off but somehow get inflation down to only 90% per year. Seriously, that was his campaign platform.

Blowing everything up began to look a whole lot better than the Same Old Shit Forever.

One of the only countries in central / south america with no large groups of indigenous people to speak of.

So most Argentines are, well, European looking, since they descend from Italians, Spaniards.

Oh, and war criminal Nazis. (I kid, I kid).

They also have had an influx of migrants from north of them that has shifted some demographics a bit there as well, and caused a bit of a backlash.

"far right" just means something the Narrative Speakers disagree with.

Which is how the BBC can call North Korean's government "far right", and American media can call Trump, Hitler, anti-abortion activists, people who want to pay less taxes, people who don't believe in castrating children, etc. etc. all "far right" although they have little in common with each other.

Here are a few of his thoughts:

"This is a society infected by socialism and what we need to achieve is to remove socialism from people's minds."

"Politicians are sociopaths who want to make us believe that we are mentally invalid in every sense because we cannot live without them."

"If the country were divided between those who produce on one side and the other side, the f*cking politicians, the syndicalists, this whole bunch of parasites, they would sink and die."

163 Argentina's Economy Minister Sergio Massa concedes defeat to populist in presidential runoff. Source: AP. Representing the center-left governing coalition, the pragmatic Massa fell short against a neo-fascist Milei - whose runoff campaign was bolstered by an endorsement from the third-place candidate, Patricia Bullrich.

Excellent link. one of the few that doesn't refer to him as a "libertarian" - which he isn't...He branded himself a libertarian early on - fooling a lot of low-information voters (particularly men).

Cry for Argentina. Their low-information voters really did them in - plus RW media and courts, which succeed in taking the likely winner, former Pres. Cristina Kirchner, out of contention (much like Brazil's Lula in 201.

Milei is wholly owned by elites who're licking their chops at the idea he'll mega-devalue and crash the economy - such that they could then buy everything worth owning for peanuts. Some U.S. and European CEOs are no doubt thinking the same thing.

If you had asked me a year ago whether a guy who praised Margaret Thatcher would win Argentina by 12 points, I would have laughed...

I suspect that continuing to deny Secret Service protection to RFK,Jr has turned Kennedy's political opposition to Biden into personal hatred of Biden. Just a guess.

I don't know if is still this way, but Argentina at least used to have a carrier wing. It doesn't have any carriers, but it has the aircraft and pilots. It cooperates with and drills with the US Navy.

Periodically, the carrier air wing trains with the USN, doing touch-and-go exercises on US carriers. These maneuvers are colloquially referred to as "Gringo-Gaucho Drills."

Dunno if they still happen.

1. It took decades of almost unbelievably inept and malicious governance to finally convince the majority of Argentinians to ditch the left. Sadly, I expect a similar timeframe here.

2. Milei is going to find out that Argentina's version of the Deep State will do everything in its power to thwart him. I hope he's prepared for the nastiness coming.

It was only close in the first round, 2 or 3 weeks ago. That was between a) Melei, b) the Socialist Candidate, and c) a more traditional "conservative" candidate. The traditional conservative took about 20% of the vote in that round, but in the runoff, almost all of her people voted for Melei.

Daniel Noboa, only 35 years old, recently became Ecuador’s youngest elected president. He had appealed to the country’s relatively young electorate during his campaign & also (reportedly) relied on the backing of two existing parties to support his bid - People, Equality and Democracy (PID) and also the Revolutionary and Democratic Ethical Green Movement (MOVER).

I was more shocked (although, I probably shouldn't be) that the AP article quote so severely skews the political leanings of the candidates.

Representing the center-left governing coalition, the pragmatic Massa fell short against a neo-fascist Milei - whose runoff campaign was bolstered by an endorsement from the third-place candidate, Patricia Bullrich.

In reality, isn't Massa an outright socialist? And Milei a populist with libertarian leanings?

there are two letters that Bolivar wrote, that bookended his career. The Letter From Jamaica, which laid out what he predicted the promise of Latin America as a young rebel planning to take on the Spanish Empire, and the letter he wrote to General Juan José Flores, which he wrote as he was dying, waiting for the ship to take him into exile.
"he who serves revolution plows furrows in the ocean"

Argentina was settled in a large part by Italians who had a history with anarcho syndicalism. A lot of them wound up in the cities working as laborers, and in the way south working for British wool companies, and when they held a strike against poor working conditions and pay, the Argentine Army put the strike down in the bloodiest way possible to avoid "contagion" of labor action in the cities. The rest of Argentina's history has reflecting this, as a vacillation between authoritarian rule and open socialist rule.

And a media that is so in the tank with the left that all they produce is lying propaganda.

Argentina has a paper ballot voting day, a Sunday, and every citizen 16 and older required to vote. From what I read about how that every citizen thing works, it sounds like, in effect, full implementation voter ID. Can't vote the dead, can't do the shenanigans done here with mail ballots.
