Camila Vallejo y Jose Vicente Rangel: generaciones distintas, un mismo fraude.

El otro día la afamada lideresa del estudiantado chileno, ese que reclama por una educación "gratis y de calidad", viajo a Cuba a ver a Fidel, peregrinación obligatoria de cualquier wanna-be líder de la izquierda arcaica de nuestro continente.  Yoani Sanchez, que sí es una resistente de verdad en condiciones que la pobre Camila no puede ni imaginarse en su glamoroso Santiago con un Internet y Twitter velocícimos para organizar protestas, le pidió visita, para que conozca el otro lado de la moneda en Cuba donde si la educación es gratis hay serias dudas en cuanto a la calidad.

Pues bien, la Camila no se dio ni por enterada y no iba a perderse babearse frente al las imágenes ya momificadas de la idolatría castrista.  Nada menos que el propio Silvio Rodriguez, otro afamado defensor de la libertad, salio a defender la postura insostenible de la lidereza estudiantil.  Aparentemente en Chile ya se están dando cuenta y a pesar de todo su glamour y protagonismo no logró ganar las elecciones estudiantiles allá.  Aunque siempre existen apologistas que se la hechan de críticos inteligentes diciendo que la dichosa vista fue y no fue.

En fin, es una pena que una mujer con potencial como Vallejo pretenda minimizar los males de Cuba para maximizar los de Chile que ha pesar de sus claroscuros es hoy en día uno de los países mas prometedores de nuestro continente.  A 23 años y ya ella es un fraude de la izquierda arqueológica.

Por lo menos Jose Vicente Rangel en Venezuela es un fraude cónsono con eso de la edad ideo-arqueológica del aprendiz a dictatorzuelo que el defiende.  El problema de JVR son los cagatintas que reportan sus profundidades investigacionistas (lo bueno del chavismo es que uno puede inventar cualquier palabra).  Fíjense que hasta este humilde bloggero aparece en un articulo de Aporrea firmado por la AVN reportando sobre alguna presentación televisiva del Mike Wallace criollo (Not!)

Si bien han detectado que escribo mas frecuentemente en inglés que en cristiano (o sea, exploraron el blog), no cavilan en decir que soy parte del elenco electoral extranjero de Capriles a pesar de mis frecuentes reservas con dicho candidato expresadas durante las primarias.  No hay matices.  O sea, sí, ojearon pero si leyeron no entendieron.

Me halagan también con ser una inspiración a Stratford en eso de que me robaron la idea de chavismo=peronismo aunque ni ese merito tengo (lo tiene el constitucionalista Alberto Franceschi que fue el primero en mencionar el "balcón peronista de Miraflores" allá en el lejano 99-00).

No tienen que leerse todo el mamotreto de AVN/Aporrea, basta con el párrafo "9" donde ademas de confundir "bloque" con "blog" califican a este social demócrata liberal y defensor de derechos de gays y féminas como un ultraderechista furibundo.

¿Porque será que cualquiera que no se comparte 100% los lineamientos de Fidel y sus secuaces tiene que ser un ultraderechista furibundo, con todo aspaviento?  ¿Por que no nos ayudan y definen quien está entre ellos y los ultraderechisitas porque esa definición no la conozco ni se de ella?  Pero me temo que para ellos no hay nadie en el medio.

El fraude intelectual sigue a estas alturas a pesar de todas la evidencias aquí o en La Habana.  Es que todavía a estas alturas hay quienes creen que funcionará alguna vez. Bueno, si funciona para esos ávidos de carreras políticas exprés como el Hugo o la Camila que siempre logran conseguir suficiente resentidos para llegar a algo.

    1. "O sea", mi ínclita Syd, ya se usaba en el Norte de Valencia en 1985.
      Eso debió de haber llegado a la zona francófona de San Felipe a más tardar en 1990, pero en el Cerro 'e Marialioza no lo vas a oír.

      En cualquier caso: he escuchado ya varias veces a esa Vallejo. No me parece más que una cara bonita. Es una hijita de papá que aprendió algo de teoría marxista y sabe repetir algunas aseveraciones correctas que muchos saben, con una serie de propuestas que no tienen sentido.

    The topic of Chileans in Cuba reminded me of Persona Non Grata Jorge Edwards’s book about his experience as Chile’s ambassador to Cuba. Allende renewed diplomatic relations with Cuba, and chose Edwards as his ambassador. Cuba expelled Edwards after several months, considering him not servile enough.

    There is a passage in the book about the visit to Cuba of a cadet training ship of the Chilean Navy. One of the Cuban visitors to the ship was Fidel Castro. Because Google Books has the book under severe snippet view, I cannot verify my memory, but I recall there being a passage telling of Cuban visitors to the ship leaving slips of paper throughout the ship with messages like “Don’t make the mistakes that Cuba did.”

  7. I think the trip and behavior of Camila Vallegos in Cuba was a mistake. If she wanted to go to Cuba and still be consistent with her motto that Chile should not be Cuba, then she should have visited Yoani Sánchez and gotten a different perspective. By getting to Cuba in the best 1970's style, she was forgetting what has happened in Cuba in the last forty years or more.

    Now, this is too bad, because I agree with Camila Vallejos main message. Education should be free and of high quality and society as a whole should pay for it. This has nothing to do with communism, socialism or capitalism, but everything to do with a society choice. Unfortunately, Vallejos trip to Cuba, and her inconsistent behavior, gives fuel to those that equate a legitimate request for free quality education with an archaic communist movement.

    1. You are right. But Camila and her cohorts took a wrong turn from the start, with a politicization of the thing as an anti Piñera anger from the start. As such it was seen as a fight between embittered losing concertacion that could not accept anyone but them in office. Never mind that Bachelet was also subjected to massive student protests.

  8. Like Bruni, I support Vallejo's efforts on behalf of Chilean students. But she made a big mistake in choosing to drink the Kool Aid in Cuba.

    Daniel, I disagree w/ you regarding Piñera. This is the government, after all, that changed Chilean textbooks so they would refer to Pinochet's rule as a "military regime" instead of what it truly was, a dictatorship. By changing those words in Chilean textbooks, Piñera wants to help rewrite history and diminish the atrocities of Pinochet's dictatorship. This is the type of president Camila Vallejo and her fellow Chilean students are up against. The students in Chile have no choice but to stand firm against Piñera. (And they never were as vociferous in their protests against Bachelet as they are now against Piñera.) This doesn't excuse Vallejo's naive embrace of Fidel, which is why her visit to Cuba will cost her dearly.

    1. ¿Por que tienes que estar en acuerdo o desacuerdo con mi opinion de Piñera ya que no he expresado opinion alguna al respecto? Lo que critico son tacticas erradas e ideologicas de Vallejo and Co. Eso no tiene nada que ver si Piñera es bueno o malo o si la causa es justa o no. En Venezuela habia causas justas en 1998 pero la metodologia usada nos llevo al desastre. Need I say more?

    1. It does. Both are crap states but a dictatorship is a clearer picture.

      Bruni, Guillermo,

      I agree with you education should be provided by the state and yet I didn't expect much from Vallejo. That woman is a confessed communist (or "communist"), in the Marxist sense of word, not in the Ronald-Reaganesque one.
      So: pity the discourse in Chile is led by two extremes.

  10. Bueno Daniel, no se si debes sentirte honrado de haber sido mencionado en el articulo, o molesto porque te acortaron el nombre y te mocharon la marca (Venezuela and News). O sea, te quedaste ciego porque te mocharon el "Views".

    En cuanto a la Srta. Vallejo, yo solo espero que se despierte y se de cuenta que ese dinosaurio ya no va p'al baile. Por muy justificada que sea la situacion Cilena en cuanto a la educacion y demas, identificarse con un dictador como Fidel en estos tiempos deberia ser un clavo en el ataud politico de una persona y no lo que fue en algun momento, como una especie de prueba superada.

    1. Roberto: ella es una comunista, es dirigente del Comité Central de las Juventudes Comunistas de Chile. Yo jamás he sido comunista, pero he leído un montón de documentos internos de los partidos comunistas.

      Vallejo es comunista declarada. Eso tiene implicaciones claras. Su respeto hacia el pluralismo solo va hasta donde piense que le convenga para aumentar su influencia. Eso ha sido así desde Rosa Luxemburg

      Muchos apoyamos educación de calidad pagada por el gobierno para todos y cosas de esas (sí, en base a impuestos) pero no tenemos nada, nada que ver con el régimen de los milicos cubanos.

      No me sorprende en absoluto que Vallejo apoye a ese régimen.

      Espero que en Chile pronto movimientos social demócratas y cualquier otro tomen el liderazgo en esta discusión.
      Lamentablemente, la prensa extranjera y la misma nacional van a darle más cámara a una cara bonita de ojos verdes que se sepa expresar bie porque pasó su infancia en un ambiente burgués enamorado con ideas comunistoides, un ambiente donde pudo practicar las técnicas de la retórica.

  11. Kepler,

    I am no expert on Vallejos, but what I read is that Her FATHER is a long standing communist. That's the problem. The sons and daughters of communist people are very often strongly emotionally attached to an utopic idea of the communism and revolution.

    When I grew up, my parents allowed us to be, intellectually, whatever we wanted. Whereas in my limited experience, communist parents, specially if they were persecuted, imprinted a particular way of thinking to their children.

    So her going to Cuba and embracing the regime maybe a childish thing, after all.

    1. Bruni,
      Claro, los hijos son influenciados por sus padres. Mis padres actuaron de una manera similar a los tuyos y me permitieron buscar y discutir ideas de donde fuese. Los de Vallejos probablemente no fueron así. He conocido a gente nacida en Europa de padres chilenos exiliados que realmente viven aun el trauma de 1973 y ven a cualquiera "de izquierda", incluso al milico Chávez, como un tipo que va a rehacer lo que ellos piensan que Allende estaba haciendo.

      Un par de esos europeos de padres chilenos les cayeron a golpes a una pareja de venezolanos que había sostenido una pancarta de protesta a Chávez...en pleno centro de Bruselas.
      La policía los conoce.
      Los traumas e ideologías que sus padres tengan no los puede eximir de responsabilidad.

  12. It's no wonder the media would be fascinated by Camilla, just like pictures of Che Guevara are still cool - a visit by an attractive, flamboyant " rebel" student leader to Fidel Castro is definitely cool.Not so if she were to be visiting Marco Rubio in Florida and promoting free market ideas in Chile ; That wouldn't even make the back pages.

    What I find most appalling about Ms. Vallejo's embrace of Fidel Castro is the simple intellectual dishonesty of it all. Who elected Fidel and his brother,....to anything? What was the choice of the Cuban people? What was their say in the matter? If it was OK for Fidel to have no elections for 60 years, thus depriving millions of people of a voice in their own government, why wouldn't it be equally OK for Pinochet to do the same? Why? What if all governments in the world were run by people who seized power, declaring themselves to be the 'will of the people,' then stifled any dissent by political opponents? What if the United States had such a government? The world would quickly descend into a North Korean-like darkness that could never recover. Frightening. It is the intellectual dishonesty by this young, attractive Chilean political wannabe that is so disheartening. Can't you see the hypocracy? The lie is staring in her face, but she doesn't quite get it. How very sad.

    Regarding dictatorship/regime: that is the call of the Chilean people. What many people either ignore or are not aware of is that three weeks before the coup, the Chamber of Deputies passed by 81-47 a Resolution which some have called the “Declaration of the Breakdown of Chile’s Democracy.” An excerpt follows.

    "5. That it is a fact that the current government of the Republic, from the beginning, has sought to conquer absolute power with the obvious purpose of subjecting all citizens to the strictest political and economic control by the state and, in this manner, fulfilling the goal of establishing a totalitarian system: the absolute opposite of the representative democracy established by the Constitution;
    6. That to achieve this end, the administration has committed not isolated violations of the Constitution and the laws of the land, rather it has made such violations a permanent system of conduct, to such an extreme that it systematically ignores and breaches the proper role of the other branches of government…"


    In general and in specific, the Resolution could be interpreted as an invitation to a coup. Allende himself called it such. The democratically elected members of the Chamber of Deputies would not have passed such a strongly-worded resolution by a commanding 63- 37% majority if their constituents, the Chilean people, were not also disgusted with the Allende government’s repeated violations of law and democratic procedure.

    I wonder what Ms. Vallejos and her parents think of the Resolution.

    José Piñera, the President’s brother, did this translation of the Resolution.

    1. Or arguably an invitation to uphold Article 350 of the Venezuelan Constitution, or the Declaration of Independence: "whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government..."

      If a non-democratic government is kicked out and replaced by a democratic one, can we actually call that a coup? (Not to say that's what happened in Chile in 1973 - or Venezuela in 2002.)

      For a communist or similar, all is forgiven because there is a presumption of sincere solidarity with the People. For the rest of us, nothing is tolerated, because it is assumed that we all are against the People. Whoever came up with this marketing jewel deserves a prize.
