Pablo Duggan’s apologies to Javier Milei

He then explained that “Nazism was not an authoritarian or rigid style in the use of power, but rather it was an ideology that sought to impose the supposed Aryan supremacy over the entire planet, eliminating (murdering) all other human beings considered inferior.” “.

He then justified his unfortunate sayings: “He spoke of ‘aesthetic superiority’ And that made a lot of noise to me, and the idea immediately came to mind. Nazi concept of racial superioritywhich was one of the main arguments and banners of Nazism, and that was what I expressed.

I understand that the words used could have been misinterpreted and generated understandable discomfort in Javier Milei.but since that was not the intention, and the speaker also shares the commitment to fight against any act that involves trivializing an event as aberrant as the Holocaust, I consider this clarification to be appropriate along with this request for apology.” , hill.

Just a few minutes later Milei’s response came: “Thank you very much for your apology, which is welcome.. Greetings”.
