Venezuelan Ambassador to the UN, Samuel Moncada, denounces the U.S. media and propaganda war against the Caracas government.
“Despair for attacking Venezuela leads officials of (U.S. President Donald) Trump, his propaganda organs and his Venezuelan puppets to repeat any lie they find along the way. Fake news are weapons of destruction even in their ridiculous version”, the Venezuelan representative to the United Nations (UN) has censored in a message published this Wednesday in his Twitter account.
In another comment published on the same social network, Moncada has criticized the fact that the people who speak the truth in the United States are subject to threats and criticism from the U.S. Administration.
“In Washington, whoever breaks the single thought imposed from power by propaganda organs pays with “social death”. A congresswoman is considered an enemy of her country in the “court of public opinion” and threatened with death for revealing truths about Venezuela,” she has repudiated.
The Venezuelan diplomat alluded to Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who has attacked Trump for his support for the coup in Venezuela, and his threats to resort to military action to overthrow Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.
Omar is not the only U.S. lawmaker opposed to Washington’s coup agenda, as several other congressmen, including Democrat Bernie Sanders, have denounced Trump’s government’s recognition of the self-proclamation as interim president of Venezuela of Juan Guaidó, head of the National Assembly (NA) of the Bolivarian Republic, controlled by the opposition and in contempt since 2016.
In recent weeks, the U.S. has increased pressure against Caracas in favor of coup leader Guaidó; imposed new rounds of sanctions against Venezuelan entities and authorities; launched a psychological war against the country’s Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB), threatening to disobey the president; and if not, they will suffer consequences.
Faced with such threats, the FANB has repeatedly reiterated its support for Maduro’s government and has asserted that it works to guarantee the country’s sovereignty. The Chavista leader also has the support of 80% of the people, according to a poll conducted this February by the Venezuelan Institute of Planning.
