“Rusito”, ¿una expresión cariñosa o discriminatoria? Por Daniel Muchnik

Uno de los argumentos desaforados que usó la Presidenta de la Nación para denostar a los participantes y dirigentes que concretaron la huelga del 31 de marzo fue acusar de “oligarcas” a los que la cumplieron al pié de la letra. Y a denostar al gremialista Luis Barrionuevo por llamar “rusito” al ministro Axel Kicillof. Todas las acusaciones de la Jefa de Estado se dirigieron a la base que siempre sostuvo al peronismo, al movimiento obrero, que ahora reclama por la tremenda injusticia del impuesto al trabajo.

Cristina es dueña del “cristinismo” pero no de aquello que alguna vez pergeñara el “líder”. Néstor Kirchner, en 2003, había prometido modificar el sistema impositivo que nos rige y actuar con justicia: es una deuda grande de la “década ganada”.

Corresponde una crítica a la Presidenta por no haberlo cumplido y mantener la presión fiscal más alta de la historia argentina para disponer de una distribución caprichosa y veleidosa de los fondos públicos.

Barrionuevo, indudablemente, se equivocó y mucho. Algunos lo tomaron a la chacota. No se podía esperar otra cosa de un hincha fervoroso de Chacarita Juniors que mantiene una vieja tirria con Atlanta, equipo identificado con la colectividad judía, aunque poco tiene que ver.

Al día siguiente Barrionuevo insistió en un grave error: para salvar su nombre dijo que tenía “amigos judíos”, típico argumento de los antisemitas cada vez que se sienten criticados. Barrionuevo contratar con urgencia un asesor de prensa.

Argentina es una nación receptora de dispares inmigraciones. Decenas de veces me llamaron “ che, rusito”, como yo he llamado “ gallego”, “vasco” o “gringo “ a cualquier compañero de trabajo. Para molestarse basta tomar en cuenta el tono con el que se pronuncia la expresión “ rusito” y, en eso, los afectados tienen una sensibilidad especial. Importa cómo se dice, la forma, la oportunidad, y el lugar en que se usa. Hay un radar especial e inexplicable por parte de las supuestas víctimas. Lo digo por experiencia. De ninguna manera es antisemita tenaz y activo quien usa el término de “rusito”.

Pero Barrionuevo salió de encuadre y en un día especial. Su expresión no ayudó a una protesta válida.
