After the confession of the 20-year-old who falsely denounced having suffered a brutal homophobic attack in Madrid, the debate between political parties has continued on social networks. The most belligerent has been Vox, who has denounced a “book disinformation operation” to demonize them and has demanded the resignation of the Minister of the Interior, Fernando-Grande Marlaska.
He has been the national spokesperson for the training, Jorge Buxadé, which in a tweet has indicated that the objectives of this “operation” were two: the “demonization” of Vox and “pre-constitute false evidence.” «The left, the liberals, the media are discredited. No one is going to believe them. At least that is what we win ”, he added. The Deputy Speaker in Congress, Macarena Olona, has also been pronounced, qualifying as “vomitive” the “political use of homosexuals.”
For its part, the leader of Vox in the Community of Madrid, Rocío Monastery, has justified its rejection of the regional law against LGTBIphobia. Despite the fact that there have been no accused at any time –because there were no perpetrators, the Police has not identified anyone–, it has argued that this rule “does not respect the presumption of innocence”, which it has defined as “a legal aberration” .
They are the government of the hoax. They are capable of anything to demonize VOX.
We will hold Pedro Sánchez accountable in Congress.
Marlaska must resign. https://t.co/2ZskKEiOZw

The official accounts of the party insist on the resignation of the “prevaricating and corrupt” minister of the Interior and have announced that they will ask the President of the Government for explanations, Pedro Sánchez, in Congress.
Teodoro Garcia Egea, Secretary General of the Popular Party, also pointed to the Minister of the Interior. In another tweet he asked if Marlaska knew that the complaint was false “when he accused other political formations of generating hatred”: “If he knew, too bad; if not, worse ».
For her part, the president of Ciudadanos (Cs), Ines Arrimadas, has described the false complaint as “terrible” in an interview on Antena 3, where he has indicated that it does a “disservice” to the LGTBI collective. The liberal leader, in addition, wanted to recognize the work of the National Police and has joined the requests for the resignation of the minister.
“It is regrettable, above all, the use made by the Government”, has sentenced Arrimadas, who has stressed that Grande-Marlaska should be “the most responsible” and is the one who has “more information”. It is not the first time that Cs requests the resignation of the head of the Interior, as Arrimadas herself recalled, very critical of his career. Specifically, he recalled the judicial setback for his action in the immigration crisis in Ceuta, the irregular dismissal of Diego Pérez de los Cobos or the report that “was invented” to minimize the harassment of Cs in the LGTBI Pride 2019.
43 percent increase
The Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, asked yesterday that “the tree does not prevent us from seeing the forest” and assured that, in the first half of 2021, “hate crimes against the LGTBI community have increased by 43%.”
In the same line speaks the PSOE. “It is regrettable that this false report is being used. With this false complaint, the main injured party continues to be the LGTBI collective. The most reactionary sectors are using this false accusation to once again play down its importance », said Felipe Sicilia.
It is true, the leaders of VOX do not go out to hunt down people from the LGTBI collective, they are content with firing bullets of hate from their comfortable seats. pic.twitter.com/UHrAx2bzK4
