Diego Armando already said it in the announcement of an educational campaign of the Generalitat: drugs, boys and girls, are very bad. Was Jaime Celada, a PP councilor – and municipal spokesman! – from Cabanillas del Campo, Guadalajara province, going to taja when he sang Cara al sol at a feast on December 31?
As if that were not enough, the man goes and sings it with his arm raised, as if he were in the semifinal of Got Talent, a talkative contest, where a jury is dedicated to giving encouragement and rope to alternative artists with an uncertain future. Thanks to mobiles, there is constancy.
And now what do we do with this public servant from Cabanillas del Campo, Madrid's commuter town and not an agricultural town, as the discerning reader might think? The answer lies with the PP, which has already opened a file on it, with the additional brown that Celada took a selfie with Núñez Feijóo, labeled "Ready".
I, as a Democratic opinion-maker, would remove him from office for a while because he has infringed the brand new Democratic Memory law, but I would give him a second chance in the form of a short course, like the one they apply to those convicted of corruption. Doesn't Spain have assistance resources so that those nostalgic for Francoism put aside Cara al sol and learn to choose more inclusive songs, such as La vaca lechera, Hoy tengo ganas de ti or Desde Santurce a Bilbao, so appropriate for binge eating that Do they end in drunkenness and exaltations of friendship?
The controversy would be settled if this Celada apologized to society and promised to banish Cara al sol to family privacy, although something tells me that this type of hymn, such as La Internacional, La Marseillaise or I like pipiribipipi, they tend to companies.
And thus, by the way, we would prevent a democratic society from stigmatizing the habit, in danger, of bawling popular songs at after-dinners. Because it is one thing to sing the hymn of the Falange with your arm raised and another to prohibit revelry in taverns, inns and eating houses. Ultimately, and for that matter of democratic health, it is about singing without singing.
