If Gilbert Collard cites a local radio to support his words, it turns out that his assertions are false. A crèche was indeed damaged, but the municipality hastened to to re-establish facts. “In view of the comments on social networks that claim that the person who attacked the nursery is of North African origin, we deny this information. He is from Calahorra, Spanish and white”said the official Twitter account of the town hall of the commune.
The city councilor, Elisa Garrido, also wanted to clarify the situation, lashing out to the people who have exploited this degradation by making remarks with racist overtones. “NO, the one who damaged the Calahorra nativity scene does not correspond to the profiles imagined by certain hateful spirits who take advantage of any opportunity to sow their resentment. No to xenophobia”insisted the city councilor on Twitter.
