After the armed attack on Cristina Kirchner many things changed in the political arc. The tension between the parties has decreased and an attempt is being made to give a message of union between the political spaces, although the president Alberto Fernandez denounced that the cause of the aggression were the generators of «hate speech» through the social networks.
At a press conference from Houston, USAthe Argentine president affirmed that there is a “discouragement caused by sectors of the right and left” but that “right wing prevail lately«. Following this, he asserted that “they give a comforting or hate speech that sometimes penetrates the heads of many people.”
As a result of this, he emphasized that «the use of social networks must be regulated in some way so that direct hate speech stops circulating there.” Of course, this would go against the freedom of expression in Argentina taking into account who would be “regulated” and under what conditions, two points on which he did not speak but which drew a lot of attention. «
«I think it has to be done. How society nobody wants what happened to Cristina Kirchner. There were people who threw torches at Casa Rosada, body bags and guillotines with my face or hanging. It is true that the media visualized it. You have to understand that it is not good for a society, it is definitely bad, “concluded Alberto Fernández.
Finally, the head of state avoided getting into legal issues and dodged the question about the progress of the investigation into the attack on the vice president. “Obviously there is a group of people who were working on it. Then I hope that the justice determines if there are other responsibles who financed the issue », he indicated.
