L-I: Moyano, a few minutes ago

I have just watched a TV show where Moyano was interviewed by Carlos
Longobardi, that kind of son of a bitch as only Argentina can
produce. Longobardi, together with Daniel Hadad, is one of the
journalists of the Proceso, that is of the inheritors of the media
policies generated under the 1976-83 dictatorship.

He has interviewed, at the same time, Victor de Gennaro, Rodolfo
Daer, and Hugo Moyano. The interview showed that even a Daer is more
progressive, in his ideas (which are those that a bourgeois should
hold, if there were such an animal in Argentina), than the De la Rúa
government. But this is not what I want to comment.

I want to announce that Moyano has given another stride forward. This
time, on the political ideology. During the interview, Moyano spoke
of Machinea, the Minister of Economy, who declared that Moyano was a
"terrorist" and a "golpista" (that is, one who furthers or gives a
coup d'etat) because of his calls to fiscal rebellion yesterday at
the May Square. At this, Moyano simply said that "Well, then he is a
sepoy!  If he wants hard language, he will have it as well!"

This definition, which fits Longobardi as well as Machinea and many
others, is a word with tons of political wisdom and history in
Argentina. Moyano, by just uttering it, has put the stakes still
higher.

By the way, Machinea, who has the gall to speak in English to foreign
journalists in his own country, and has been learning in the USA all
that he needed to know in order to serve the IMF, ignores the
elementary fact that it was a fiscal rebellion at Boston Harbour that
set off the American Revolution!

Or perhaps he does know very well that it is for the Crown that he is
working.
