They have caused a lot of anger and discomfort. No contention or consideration. In La Moncloa they deploy forcefulness and censure against José María Aznar, after his words calling for the mobilization of civil society against a possible amnesty. "It is absolutely serious that a former president of the Government makes these types of statements, which look more like anti-democratic and coup-mongering behavior than those of a former president," has been the censorship from La Moncloa.
Without hesitation. Directly face to face. In La Moncloa they do not shy away from describing Aznar. They carry everything. Thick words that reveal the discomfort, even anger, caused by the reflections made at the inauguration of the Faes Campus, organized by the think tank he presides. Government sources state that their response has to be harsh and forceful because their statements are extremely serious, they state, because they consider that "they speak of national rebellion, not civic rebellion."
In its response, the Government has not hesitated to appeal to the management of the 11-M attacks by Aznar and his government. "It was he who lied to the Spaniards, it was he who used the largest terrorist attack suffered by our country," was the reproach launched by Isabel Rodríguez, government spokesperson, after the meeting of the Council of Ministers. "Whoever did all this has little credibility and his statements have no political or even moral value."
"We must say again, enough is enough! Spain cannot and will not return to a system based on exclusion, on sectarianism, nor on the programmed destruction of the nation. No one can remain on the sidelines of a task that confronts us. must be convened to ensure the future. No body, no democratic power, no social, cultural or intellectual leadership, not even the constitutional left that risks its own identity and its trajectory, no one, I insist, with a sense of responsibility, committed to the historic agreement among Spaniards", is part of the reflection that Aznar has presented.
Some words that, you understand, could not go unanswered. The Executive also considers that Aznar "is not a loose verse" and that is why they appeal to Alberto Núñez Feijóo. They demand the leader of the PP to ask the former popular leader to rectify. "Because of what his figure represents and the role he has in the PP," those words "would require Feijóo's immediate request for him to rectify them in the interest of our country, of constitutional and democratic values."
