The anger and insults from some Vox and Podemos readers lately can be explained by not using the frame, words or classifications they prefer, or with enough vehemence against whatever it is they see as most significant from a tribal perspective. They do not own public discourse.
The first example was the Podemos outrage over this tweet, where I remarked on a politician and some voters instead of writing something like "BRAVE LEFT LEADER PABLO IGLESIAS COURAGEOUSLY FACES UP TO FOUR NEO-NAZIS IN MADRID, WORLD HAS SEEN NOTHING LIKE IT SINCE CHURCHILL".
The second example, from the opposite extreme, was this tweet about Vox and what happened in Vallecas last week. Vox anger and insults rained down, poured down, for not describing the aspects of the event that they chose in their terms and with their level of tribal anger.
And this morning the Vox crowd is back. Abascal took a "THE VALLECAS BRICK" all the way to Congress.
Right. Just like Catalan separatists for the past nearly 10 years, while we're on that subject. Vehement, demanding, angry, tribal populism, especially if you use words, frames or ideas that are outside the morality, ideals or desires of the tribe.

Gran parte de los cabreos últimos, de un bando u otro, desde tuiteros anónimos hasta diputados nacionales, se pueden explicar por no usar el marco de referencia o taxonomía política que preferirían ellos al hablar de un acontecimiento, ni con la vehemencia exigida.
Pero el espacio y el debate públicos, la selección de temas y el uso de las palabras, marcos, etiquetas y referencias no pertenece en exclusiva a los políticos.
Y el mecanismo parece ser: o uses los términos y marcos tribales nuestros, las etiquetas para los asepectos de los acontecimientos que yo prefiera, de la manera que yo exigo, o montamos un pollo y te van a llover insultos de todo tipo, que también suelen ser tribales.

"EMA confirms overall benefit-risk remains positive" is the evaluation.

El CIS para Madrid: mayoría del PP y Vox, por los pelos. Image
Aaaamigo, no sabía yo esto:

La Asamblea de Madrid elegirá 136 diputados, cuatro más que ahora, lo que sitúa la mayoría absoluta en 69

Entonces, sí, el CIS da empate, 68-68.

abc.es/espana/madrid/…
Y comparando el CIS con los escaños actuales: Ayuso se come a Ciudadanos, entero.

- el PP sube 29
- Podemos sube tres
- el PSOE sube uno
- Más Madrid igual
- Vox pierde tres
- Ciudadanos desaparece Image

Cantó ahora con Losantos se describe como “independiente” pero que el tema es ir en las listas de PP.

—“¿Y cómo te vas a organizar?”
—“Pues como me digan”
Entonces esta mañana Cantó le ha mentido a Losantos en la radio.
Habrá que ver qué dice la ley sobre las fechas del empadronamiento o la vinculación necesaria y luego lo que Cantó entiende por esa fecha. ¿Cuándo es "hace unos días?
