Their campaign slogan of "No Fat Chicks" didn't play as well as expected with the electorate.

Is this a Spanish Inquisition joke or a Spanish Civil War joke?

"The Socialists' campaign was terrible," Andalusian health worker Carmen Martínez Gómez, one of half a million voters who abandoned the PSOE last weekend, told Al Jazeera. "In their manifesto there was nothing positive, just criticism of the rest. I couldn't see the point of voting for a party that was so negative."

oh ffs -- "the PSOE pointed out that things aren't exactly fine and dandy everywhere -- that the move toward privitasation of healthcare is bad, that there's problems with gender violence, that the ultra-right are generally dilholes, etc.  Why can't they be more upbeat? I guess I don't have any choice but to vote for the conservatives."

Cripes -- Spain is trying really hard to import American-style stupidity and like the worst parts of our government along with it.

This is worrying, as right wing parties are making gains everywhere. Remember France and lets not forget the old US of A aka Gilead.

The Partido Popular aren't even the worst, although just like everything they're steering to the right lately.  Vox are the real sh*theads.  They're the ones that do sh*t like show up at Franco's remembrance mass, put up anti-immigrant ad campaigns, make references to guns that sound kinda like US gun culture, support the outlawing of abortion (they were right there celebrating the USSC decision the other day), etc.

So the socialists got PP'ed on.

Francisco Franco said he would be back.

Probably helps that PP ditched its monarchist leadership earlier this year

This is what happens when center-right and  -left parties abandon the working class.

New Rising Sun: show up at Franco's remembrance mass


... people still celebrate Franco?

Let me guess, mostly people who think the church should play a greater role on people's lives?

Absolutely. And a lot of it goes right to misogyny and racism and just uses economics as cover. I've been deciding whether to stay in Andalucia, and this goes in the Con column.

So for the millionth time people woke up to socialism and the death worshiping economy destroying consequences of going down that road.

And right wing isn't making gains, the left has gone so far left into lunacy land that normal lefties have become right wing conservatives by comparison.

In case you losers missed it 2/3rds of those that changed parties this year favored republican over democrats, enjoy November I shall sip your tears and become stronger.

I beg of you please please keep retreating into your bubble of woke intolerance, please continue rioting and burning and killing innocent civilians and cops, please burn down the buildings in states that had before and have after free access to abortions post SC ruling, but buildings still need to be burned down cuz reasons. Just 3 more months please thank you.
