August, 2021.- Lies, dishonesty, manipulation, blackmail, terrorism, simulation, deception, false messages and images, incitement to violence, pressure on other governments in exchange for crumbs or forgiveness, promises to pay the naive wrapped in bombs, They are part of the communication script of the current White House administration to punish the worthy people of Cuba.
Powerful mass media and “social” networks spread lies to stimulate hatred. It is no longer the theory that is attributed to Joseph Göbbels, Adolf Hitler’s campaign manager: “A lie repeated a thousand times becomes true”, the United States government, with the complicity of perverse intellectuals, analysts, politicians and leaders , they repeat falsehoods millions of times to induce and justify the invasion.
The manipulative large or small media at the service of powers, oligarchies and corrupt and subject governments do not mention the economic, financial and commercial blockade imposed by the United States on the largest of the Antilles, nor do they mention the 243 measures signed by Donald Trump, nor the communication campaign to subvert order on the island.
The media echo the lies without even a fact check, and assume the shameless, cowardly and hippocratic role of bowing to the White House’s designs in the dangerous unconventional war against Cuba.
Recently, the President of the Republic of Cuba Miguel Díaz-Canel, denied the calumnies contained in the new statement by Josep Borrell, high representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Policy, who avoided calling the US blockade by its name and supported the riots promoted from the United States on July 11, an open demonstration of the support of that organization for the imperial interventionist farce against the archipelago.
“It is incredible that the EU High Representative does not mention the cruel and genocidal blockade. He lies, slanders and assumes the imperial interference farce against Cuba. Is it lack of courage or submission? “Diaz-Canel tweeted.
The Minister of Foreign Relations, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla described the statements as “regrettable, hypocritical and outrageous.” He asserted that, about Cuba, Borrell lies and manipulates.
The French journalist Ignacio Ramonet reconsidered: “Trump, being president of the United States – a country that used to be defined as a great democracy – is the first president who in a shameless way and with a kind of indifference towards what one might think, emits big lies. He has invented this concept that must be reflected on: “the alternative truth”, the idea that each one has the truth of him “. 
Current US President Joe Biden unashamedly follows the examples of his predecessor. It is the same Nazi philosophy that the US administration uses to bring dignified peoples to their knees.
Biden’s hypocritical and insolent statements constitute a mockery of international public opinion: “We express our support for the Cuban people and their cry for freedom and relief from the tragic consequences of the pandemic, and the decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have suffered. been subjected by the authoritarian regime of Cuba.
He loses more credibility when he simply states: “The Cuban people are acting with courage in claiming their fundamental and universal rights. These rights, which include the right to peaceful protest and the right to freely determine one’s own future, must be respected. ‘
He maliciously confuses the vandalism, looting and physical assault of criminals, worms and mercenaries paid for by his administration and for “peaceful” protest.
José Martí describes them: «Those who have no faith in their land are seven-month-old men. Because they lack courage, they deny it to others. The difficult tree cannot be reached with the scrawny arm, the arm with painted nails and a bracelet, the arm from Madrid or Paris, and they say that the tree cannot be reached. The ships must be loaded with these harmful insects, which gnaw at the bone of the homeland that nourishes them.
Urged by the US they even threw stones at a pediatric ward of the hospital in the municipality of Cárdenas. With what morals is Joe Biden going to call on the island’s government to “listen to his people and attend to his needs in this vital moment, instead of enriching itself?”
Biden should worry about his internal problems. This year a cable denounced: The acts of violence and police brutality grew in the United States (…) A report by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, one of the thinking tanks based in Washington, the capital, published by The Washington Post newspaper , notes that these violent acts are predominantly provoked by far-right extremists and racist elements such as white supremacists and enemies of Muslims.
The Cuban people have all the occupation of their government. The strength is in unity and support for the Revolution, while Biden hides the reality from US taxpayers by using millions of dollars in spending to suffocate the people of Cuba and fuel subversion.
José Martí’s warning in his essay “Las Américas” is valid: the “neighbor warning” that stalks and disarms the weak, and then uses force and his submissive allegations open the doors for him. The National Hero pointed out: «There is no bow that cuts through a cloud of ideas. An energetic idea, flamed in time before the world, for, like the mystical flag of the final judgment, a squadron of battleships. Peoples who do not know each other have to hurry to get to know each other, like those who are going to fight together.
Sanctions are imposed on the Cuban police for repression on the same day that there is all the evidence that in 2020 the US police shot and killed 1,11 people. What repression are they talking about? They do not have the minimum of morals to point to anyone and much less to the forces of order on the island, which is made up of men and women of the town. Honest men and women.
Solidarity towards the island beats in the United States itself when the Puentes de Amor movement travels to cities in that nation to ask for the lifting of sanctions against Cuba and to outline strategies together with other North American groups that fight for social justice.
The Prensa Latina news agency states that Puentes de Amor made a walk in recent weeks from Miami, Florida, to Washington DC, where it was joined on July 25 by numerous people in front of the White House to sue US President Joe Biden, the end of the blockade and the sanctions against the Cuban family.
The United States with its absurd policy against Cuba is isolating itself from the world, while the largest of the Antilles receives the support of various countries, which defy the announcements of interference in internal affairs on the island while alleviating the situation caused by the COVID-19 and the lockdown.
Andrés Manuel López Obrador, President of Mexico, ratified his rejection of the US siege and interference in the country’s internal affairs.
“There is a delicate situation in Cuba because they suffer from an inhuman blockade, an extreme measure, typical of medieval times that shows a great backwardness in foreign policy, and has nothing to do with the fraternity that should exist between the peoples of the world.” , Lopez Obrador sentenced.
An American artist wrote to me: “I see brave and intelligent individuals, but crowds of ignorant people who don’t care about anything except themselves and their wallets. One of the obvious things is that the corrupt and ineffective educational system here has culminated in the creation of widespread idiocy. That makes me want to scream! “
We must always appeal to José Martí: «The disdain of the formidable neighbor, who does not know her, is the greatest danger in our America; and he urges, because the day of the visit is near, that the neighbor know her, get to know her soon, so that he does not disdain her. Out of ignorance he would come, perhaps, to put greed in her. Out of respect, after he met her, he would take his hands off her. You have to have faith in the best of man, and distrust the worst of him. The best must be given an opportunity to reveal itself and prevail over the worst. If not, the worst prevails. The peoples must have a pillory for those who incite them to useless hatred; and another for those who do not tell them the truth in time “.
