A Christian minister working with Venezuelan military defectors has admitted that US ‘aid’ is a ploy designed to ‘start a revolt’ against the government. Sergio Enrique Sanmiguel Muñoz, who works with the Colombian government, told investigative journalist Dan Cohen that:
What [the US and coup plotters] really want is for the population to rise up in insurrection. And when the tiny bit of ‘humanitarian aid’ enters in this way, the political death of the president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, happens.
The ‘man of the cloth’ doesn’t stop there, however:
The issue is not if Maduro falls. The real problem comes when the next two or three presidents take power in Venezuela. Because to change the system from socialism to capitalism requires a return to imposing taxes [on poorer citizens], and once again, a demand to paying for public services. And unfortunately, the last generation of Venezuelans are accustomed to the socialist system of assistance. This means there will be a clash, almost a civil resistance, to a new government that tries to impose a capitalist system in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
Sanmiguel Muñoz’s honesty further supports the testimony of former UN expert Alfred de Zayas, who has insisted that Western states have been ‘instrumentalising’ human rights “to destroy human rights”.
Venezuela, meanwhile, is not actually a socialist country but rather a social-democratic capitalist state. But apparently, even Venezuela’s social-democratic reforms have been too much for local and global elites to accept.
The admissions are quite stunning under the circumstances. Unsurprisingly, though, the US and British corporate press have yet to pick up on this report:
Cohen also told The Canary that he chose to speak to the minister because the US State Department recognises “student groups and the Christian Church as bodies they can use to advance its interests” in Venezuela. He said Sanmiguel Muñoz “was not suspicious”, and that “he was very friendly and open”. But the minister’s “handler” apparently became suspicious after the interview; and he asked Cohen if he was “a socialist” or “a communist”. Cohen replied that he was “a journalist”.
Sanmiguel Muñoz had previously filmed himself with a group repeating vulgar opposition slogans:
However damning the evidence against Venezuela’s coup attempt may be, it seems mainstream Western media outlets won’t give due prominence to information that challenges the regime-change narrative of the US-led coup plotters. If they won’t do their jobs, we must.
