Gustavo Bolívar, Claudia López and Germán Navas Talero
The former representative to the Chamber of the Democratic Pole, Germán Navas Talero, continues to defend the message in which he asked to silence the mayor of Bogotá Claudia López. He even complained to Gustavo Bolívar, whom he asked to talk to, for the multiple criticisms that have been made of him, considering that it was a violent and threatening request.
Claudia López denounced a serious threat from Germán Navas Talero: “That is the dream of all misogynists and machos, that we remain silent and submissive”
On social networks, the former representative to the Chamber proposed “buying a silencer to silence the mayoress” for her statements about the construction of the first line of the Bogotá Metro
Bolívar, a possible candidate of the Historical Pact for mayor of Bogotá, went on a trip after resigning from the Senate. He toured New York, London and Paris, according to what he said, in which he took the opportunity to learn about the metro systems of each one of them as a result of the discussion of the design that the first line will have in the Colombian capital.
The former senator announced that he was returning to the country after his “unemployed” break to participate in the march called by President Gustavo Petro on February 14, on the occasion of citizen support for the reforms that will be based in Congress, such as health . He assured that he will be in the Plaza de Bolívar to support the president that he helped elect.
Germán Navas Talero and his history of attacks against Claudia López
It is not the first time that the former representative to the Chamber and next ambassador of Colombia in Sweden has attacked the mayoress of Bogotá for her position on the elevated metro
Upon learning of the announcement, Navas Talero also appealed for the former senator’s support, regarding the controversy that aroused for having proposed to silence the district mayoress. Not acknowledging the criticism, he called it bullying and likened his comment to the president’s requests to the president not to interfere in the city’s infrastructure projects.
Germán Navas complained to Gustavo Bolívar because “they set it up” by message to the mayoress
“Gustavo Bolivar (sic.) I am at your service. Now they put it on me for having asked the dictator for silence. It turns out that she can ask Petro for silence and I can’t ask her for silence. I want to talk to you,” Navas Talero wrote in response to the virtual mayoral candidate.
Criticism grows against Germán Navas Talero for his controversial comments against women in politics
The case of the mayoress Claudia López and the representative to the Chamber Jennifer Pedraza, has generated rejection in political figures, who have also requested that an investigation be initiated against them.
Hugo Acero, who was Secretary of Security of the Bogotá Mayor’s Office, questioned the former representative’s message. “It was not just silence, what you asked for was, in a violent way, to silence her @ClaudiaLopez, as some criminals have done who fortunately have not been able to,” he said.
The politician has remained active on social networks to support Bolívar as mayor of Bogotá, although he has not announced his decision. In addition, he has replied to messages that support him for having proposed “taking a collection to buy a silencer and silence the mayoress.”
Navas Talero continues to justify the request to silence Claudia López
“It would be good to know how many of those who write are the same ones who criticize me for asking the mayor to shut up. Let him not offend the president anymore, ”wrote the former representative in another of his messages regarding what was described by the mayor as misogyny.
Navas Talero also published an opinion column on the Cuarto de Hora website to call Enrique Peñalosa cynical, and although it was dedicated to criticizing the former mayor and asking him to “leave the president alone”, he pointed out that the “worst president that has ever had the city” is Claudia López, the only woman who has held that position.
“There are double-faced people who today tell me one thing and write another. I am a Petrista or not a Claudist. My knees were made to allow my body to move forward, not to sink them to the ground before the powerful, ”wrote the representative in another of his trills.
The type of messages that Navas Talero shares in which they insult the capital’s president
On his Twitter account, Navas Talero replied to dozens of messages insulting the district mayor, with classist and misogynistic messages, and supported the former representative’s request to silence her. However, there are few political endorsements that she has received in the midst of the controversy that she aroused. Her closest allies have decided to stay out of the situation.
Navas Talero is co-president of the Polo Democrático, but from that group they have not joined the discussion that he is engaged in maintaining.
