@hierarchon, Castillo's leftist credentials are far over-blown.

He's more a populist than anything else. The thing that casts him as left is that the alternative is a corporatist with deep ties to mining and foreign interests in the country. And her dad who committed crimes against humanity.

Also, everyone in Peru is like super bigoted against displaced Venezuelan people.


@hierarchon, rose Twitter is famously bad at being able to categorize outside of the American left of center / right of center.

I've seen them yelling at the SNP for eating-up Scottish Labour's seats and that's funny.


@fineursine yeah, like Fujimori is *garbage* of course. and I could understand if they were like "despite our reservations, Castillo is better than the alternative". but to write this sort of effusive praise for him is just... bleh.
