Gerardo Morales harshly criticized Javier Milei
Gerardo Morales is one of the members of the Juntos por el Cambio national table and although there are many leaders in this space who would welcome a political alliance with the libertarian leader Javier Milei, he once again made clear his open rejection of any possibility of rapprochement with the deputy of La Libertad Avanza.
“Hitler also said this, ‘the German government has taken away our freedom’, ‘let’s be free’, ‘I am going to solve inflation with a stroke of the pen’, we must end the political caste”, was the controversial comparison launched by the Governor of Jujuy alluding to the legislator’s catchphrases, during an interview on the Verdad Consecuencia program of the Todo Noticias signal.
The governor’s reaction arose after observing a staging in the National Congress, where an influencer and supporter of Milei targeted the national deputies, bringing each one a shovel to propose that they “work.” The only one to whom they did not take the tool was precisely the deputy of La Libertad Avanza. “Fighting lefties is a full-time job,” defended the architect of the campaign, Mauro Stendel.

After witnessing the coverage of the curious event, Morales defended political activism and strongly attacked. “Milei takes advantage of the angry situation of a group of Argentine society that is right, but to ask him things that don’t make sense. She is a person who has not ruled anything. Here you have to govern a country. I am sure that more democracy is needed,” said the Jujuy leader, who is also president of the Radical Civic Union, one of the parties that make up the backbone of Together for Change.
The libertarian economist is a disruptive figure that has emerged in recent years among the Argentine leadership with good acceptance in the electorate, and the consequences that his irruption will bring generates uncertainty in the two majority political spaces up to now in Argentine politics, the pro-government Frente de Everyone and the opposition united in Together for Change.

Faced with this unknown, there are sectors of the opposition that see the possibility of opening the doors of space to Milei and her followers with good intentions. Morales is one of the staunchest critics of that possibility. “Milei is placed in Argentine politics so that the worst caste in Argentine politics continues to govern, which is what he justly denounces, which is Kirchnerism,” he insisted without duplicity.
The controversial comparison that Morales used to refer to the libertarian had already been used by another of the leaders of the opposition alliance, Elisa Carrió, who said that the economist did not have “emotional balance.” On that occasion, Milei made known the offense that the statements of the founder of the Civic Coalition represented to her and accused her of trivializing the holocaust.

On the other hand, the public confrontation between Morales and Milei has numerous precedents. The libertarian deputy insulted the governor of Jujuy on more than one occasion, whom he points out for his long career in public administration.
After the radical’s statements on television, it was Stendel himself, promoter of the campaign in front of Congress and who ultimately unleashed the new and unexpected controversy between him and Morales, who was in charge of responding to him.
“The Gerardo Morales parasite compares us with Hitler for giving his deputies shovels? It doesn’t surprise me coming from a guy who has lived in the East for 23 years. He terrifies them of losing their tongo ”, he wrote on his networks.
