[dropcap]T[/dropcap]hose who think Univisión's veteran "anchor" Jorge Ramos is just a bold and hard-working journalist are badly deluded. As our readers may remember Ramos just covered himself with infamy by trying his best to ambush President Maduro during a phony interview, the kind of stunt he has pulled before in the service of US imperialism with both Presidents Chavez and Morales.
In this video (unfortunately only in Spanish) a Colombian commentator, William Cardona, tears Ramos' entire stunt to shreds. Among other points he makes:
1. People eating from garbage trucks and garbage dumps are common in Colombia, Washington's star ally in the region, and prime accomplice in the garroting of Venezuela, as well as probably other nations with huge inequality gaps, including Brazil, Central America, and even Mexico. Ramos however is happy to choose Venezuela as the example, only to "prove" that socialism doesn't work, or that Maduro is inept, corrupt, or all of the above, just as Donald Trump recently proclaimed before an audience of gusanos and reactionaries in a ridiculous speech in Florida. Cardona states unequivocally that in Colombia, his country, he has seen on numerous occasions many people gathering around and following garbage trucks looking for things to recycle (and possibly sell) and for food and clothes, too. This is a daily occurrence, affirms Cardona. As well, says Cardona, dozens of people live by picking food from municipal dumps, by regular dumpster diving in various neighborhoods, or wherever great amounts of garbage accumulate.
2. Cardona further notes that the "evidence" filmed by Ramos suggests the situation was staged—a false flag—as the supposedly "homeless" youths dressed in a manner typical of the middle class. "They had a script to enact," says Cardona, alluding to several details giving the lie to Ramos' claims. These youths were simply "the protagonists of a shady show concocted by Marco Rubio and his sicarios" to simply provoke President Maduro, hiding behind the shield of "being a journalist." It quickly became clear, says Cardona, that whatever Pres. Maduro was explaining about the reality of his country was not going to be presented to the international audience, just the slanderous propaganda package facilitated by Ramos.
3. Cardona also says that Ramos should not strut around claiming to be a victim of some unfair roughhousing by Maduro and his people since he was never in any danger, and he had literally insulted the president calling him a murderer and a dictator. "I stopped Maduro...I put him in his place.." Empty braggadocio, worthy of poltroons. We wonder if he would display the same type of audacity interviewing an ISIS chieftain in his own lair.
