Vox & Controversial Video

SAL Video ClipThe spokesman for the Salobreña branch of the far-right Vox party, Manuel Martín Montero, has criticised a music video shot in Salobreña inciting violence.

Sr. Martín is highly critical of the fact that the streets of Salobreña were used as locations for a music video in which a singer appears brandishing a knife, threating violence because it incites young people to violence, male chauvinism and drug consumption,he considers.

He is referring to the music video by Khaled y Arzvr, entitled Yo Paso a Buscarte in which locations include Barrio El Molino.

During the video one of the singers pulls out a large kitchen knife suggesting, according to Sr. Martín, that it is the only way of dealing with ‘confrontations.’

Furthermore, the song contains lines, he says that the singer would “machete those who disagree with him” and would normalise drug consumption in the case of a broken heart. Sr. Martín considers this scandalous.

Editorial comment: just a few points… first of all, it isn’t ‘music.’ Moving on from what the ‘singer’ considers his masterpiece to be, the fact is (and most importantly) that both Vox and the group are feeding off the publicity from this confrontation.Vox needs people like Khaled y Arzvr to prosper and this… group, needs parties like Vox to gain cred and sell ‘songs.’

    The article is a press release from Vox with an editorial footnote saying that both the said party and the (for want of a better word) group are feeding off each other. This just goes back to the Sex Pistols‘ “Bollocks to the Queen” who were viewed as anarchists bent upon destroying “western values.”

    No mention in the article that the video was made by a Muslim group intent on destroying westerners. The article seems to focus on VOX objecting to the video.

    We realised that when we ran it, but the editorial was critical of both Vox and the group, pointing out their linked objective in a negative light, thus hopefully not transmitting the message that they had hoped for. Besides which, even though I personally detest Vox, we have to attempt at least some impartiality when it comes to reporting in the main article

    Interesting editorial comment, which I agree with but the irony is that by running this story YOU are feeding the publicity for both sides.
