Jorge Javier Vázquez, Tamara Falcó and black Spain… or very black

The first chapter of the new comedy of entanglements of this Spain of ours -which is increasingly seedy- begins on Netflix. The platform has recently released a series about Tamara Falcó, the most popular famous ill-loved of the moment. The Marquise wakes up the day after her birthday in a room at the Ritz Hotel in Madrid and confesses to her (ex) boyfriend, Inigo Onieva, his sensations after having reached the fourth decade of life. The one that marks the equator in the best cases and encourages taking stock of the results obtained to date, which are usually much poorer than what was desired at twenty.

Tamara Falcó… Youth is a less elastic stage than it seems. It can be slightly elongated, but if abused, the existence takes on the appearance of a deformed object. The forms that the false youths acquire, with their constant efforts to hide their age with quips, become monstrous. The daughter of Isabel Preysler and the Marquis de Griñón has that aura, which may be less than it seems… but it magnifies her pretended ingenuity and her undeniable gift with people. But that touch of eternal teenager sings at the age of 40, which transforms his docu-series in a decadent product, in the style of disenchantmentthat Panero film.

Leopoldo María tried to imitate Mallarme and Baudelaire while Michi drank gin to try to enlarge his character, which was already too big at the time. talluditus so that his pose as a young rebel would seem congruent.

Tamara Falcó decides in his series to rehabilitate a couple of rooms in the palace that he inherited from his father to set up a restaurant with a mobile kitchen. His mother is against the idea. Boris Izaguirre -in all Catholic Courts there is a fickle confessor- encourages her; Y Mario Vargas Llosa watch from the chair. The girl is bored. The girl wants to set up an innovative hotel business, like so many other ‘well-off’ heirs of the Madrid town. The girl travels to Paris and New York to import ‘the unknown’. The girl becomes spoiled when she is contradicted. Let no one dare tell the king that he is naked and that his project is a martian.

While Netflix viewers ‘tasted’ this portion of scented offal, the news broke that Íñigo Onieva betrayed Falcó. Cuckolds always attract the vulgar because the misfortunes of others always help to lessen their own sorrows. There is nothing better than analyzing the causes of the sentimental failure of a famous person to cope with the tedium of an unhappy marriage or an unbearable routine. So the gossip shows -even the news ones- began to unravel every detail -real or invented- of this infidelity. They’re still doing it… and what’s left.

The hatred of Jorge Javier

While the Spaniards commented on their circumstances and their television series, Falcó went to Mexico City to participate in the ‘World Congress of Families’, organized by a group that the Spanish left-wing press has described as “ultra catholic”. Jorge Javier Vázquez all this squeaked him, so he wrote on his social networks the following: “Speeches like Tamara Falcó’s are harmful in a society that aspires to live in freedom. The way she has of demonizing those who don’t think like her is scary. Tamara Falcó has been crowned as the strongest representative of black Spain”.

What happened is the usual: the position that Falcó assigns to God and the Church in his personal, sentimental and family life did not please the television star, so he adopted the role of ‘demonizer‘. The same one he criticized in his message.

There is a very important difference between ‘don’t share’ and ‘don’t allow’. In this case, it is clear what Vázquez’s attitude is. It is the same as that of so many others who preach tolerance from positions polite, and it is that they consider those who differ from their concept of life as enemies. Like wrong people. That is what drives them to become Robespierres of social networks and press columns.

For sample, a button. Three days before, the television star signed an article in the magazine lectures which was titled: “Victoria Federica, as long as you continue to be so unpleasant, they are going to pass you through the media guillotine in a heartbeat.” Black Spain is always the others. The guillotine is well used when it is to defend my causes, which are just.

Tamara Falcó, new anathema

Tamara Falcó is a fairly innocuous character. Her superficiality is funny at first, but she gets tired after a while. For this reason, her series becomes difficult to digest from minute 20 of the first episode. That way of being, of a rich girl who is also affected by worldly matters -such as infidelity-, she is funny, but as a sitcom character would.

The true toxic element -black Spain- is Jorge Javier, like all those entertainment stars who suddenly change their register, when it suits them, and start throwing to the public political rants. In his case, in addition, resentment and proselytism are observed, which transforms him into a real time bomb for his audience, who surely, on several occasions, become aware of the problems through his speech.

It’s what the offended comedians don’t understand Movistar o the Buenafuentes. Satire, if it is not complete and does not address true power, loses meaning. It becomes propaganda. In party humor or in criticism of party arguments. Those of Jorge Javier, in addition, are not funny. In fact, his sectarianism is so bitter that he even gets upset when Falcó shows up to involve God in his personal life. Or when Antonio David Flores I was kind enough to remember that he has won all the lawsuits against Rocio Carrasco.

Be that as it may, it can be said that characters like Vázquez or Falcó herself would not be protagonists in a country in their right mind. But it is that Spain has long been gripped by despair. Almost nothing that happens in these parts can be explained without taking into account that feeling of disaffection, which leads us to observe more than necessary the opportunists and lower your arms those who find no certainty in the future. It is no coincidence that 28% of those who were of school age during the 2008 crisis (25 to 34 years old) do not have a high school diploma. Nor can this data be separated from another: almost 1 out of every 2 euros of the General State Budget project will be used to pay pensions (41.8%) or debt (6.9%).

When the future ceases to generate illusion, the distributors of artificial happiness -the one that leads to perdition- usually make a killing. The State is always willing to exercise this function in these cases. Also ‘los Jorge-Javieres’, who, when they don’t know how to control their ego, become what they are. Whatever it is. Said remains.
