The candidate for national deputy for the New MAS, Manuela Castañeira, had a strong cross with a journalist who, in a live program, criticized her because questioned capitalism but used iPhone.
The controversy occurred when during the program Intractable, which is broadcast by America, journalist Gabriel Levinas lashed out at the left-wing candidate after a tense debate on the failures of capitalism.
It all started when Levinas pointed out the cell phone that Castañeira had on the table with a good eye. “You are a provocateur, I with my salary I buy what is sung to me“the candidate answered bluntly.
Quick reflexes, Levinas pointed out that the apparatus “was produced by capitalism.” The leftist leader did not remain silent and said: “No, human work, it’s a stupid, human work “, insisted on the origin of the manufacture of the iPhone
Faced with this response, the journalist redoubled his criticism: “Buy Cuban phone.” To which Castañeira responded, with a more indignant tone: “I buy the one that is sung to me with my salary and I will tell you one thing, that is the problem of the capitalists who think they produced everything.”
Before the serious gaze of the driver Alejandro Fantino and before Levinas’ insistent offensive, the candidate replied indignantly: “We talk about the system and you want to talk about what I am wearing and what I use. It’s a huff“.
“Do you know what the mistake is? This was done by human work, the same as the toilet and the toilet paper I used this morning and I hope you also use. What do you want, that I don’t use it? It’s stupid, “he added.
Levinas retorted that “it is stupid that you advocate all systems that have failed in the world,” and Castañeira returned that “human work makes technology, makes clothes, makes computers. Did Aristotle invent capitalism? “
“But please. What a low level, go back to study, what a low level”, Closed the leader.
