The president of the government of the Balearic Islands, Francina Armengol, denounced this Friday the threats she received via social networks after Vox avoided condemning those received by Pablo Iglesias, Fernando Grande-Marlaska and the director of the Civil Guard, María Gamez.
“Yesterday, death threats, today the extreme right justifies it and then we all end up receiving threats from fascists”, lamented Armengol on Twitter, where he warns that “hatred breeds violence”.
Socialist politicians shared a screenshot of the comment a user wrote on his Instagram profile, where the subject regrets not having received an envelope with bullets, as happened to the United We Can leader: sending an envelope with bullets, ”this person wrote.
“The people who have raised the rights of this country do not deserve that we look elsewhere,” added Armengol, who called for “defending democracy against those who attack it”.
Also its vice-president, Juan Pedro Yllanes, of the purple formation, expressed through social networks his solidarity with Iglesias, Gámez and the Minister of the Interior.
“There is a part of society that actively participates in our politics that does not want our democracy to advance, they would like us to have a dictatorship,” he said, in a video posted on his Twitter profile.
“We cannot allow any measure to fight the political rival to be justified. We cannot allow anyone to be threatened, coerced, insulted or even attacked for the simple fact of being a political rival,” he added. .
