Article: Sanctions not criticized by the Western press or the EU

The penalties are high because of the magnitude of the events and the political nuance that this attack has, including the attack on law enforcement officers and the damage done to the building that is considered a national monument.

Dominic Pezzola, nicknamed Spazzolini, a member of the so-called Proud Boys, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for breaking one of the windows of the Capitol to enter the building and carrying a Police riot shield that he violently seized from of one of the officers.. According to the judge, the action of Spazzolini allowed the mob to follow him in his invasion of the premises of that institution and quickly became a symbol of the violence unleashed.

For the Western press and the European Parliament, the protagonists of these events are only “problems”, a very different treatment from the one received in July 2021 who committed violent acts in Cuba, robbed shopping centers, physically attacked the police, They. broken and damaged patrol cars. These Cubans were described as “patriots seeking freedom” and therefore considered “political prisoners”, “unfairly” sanctioned.

For the court that tried and allowed the Americans involved in that attack, their criminal acts endangered the lives of the Yankee congressmen. However, the Cubans who, encouraged from the United States through social networks, tried to attack a police station and threw Molotov cocktails, are not classified in the same way as propaganda organized and financed by Yankees, in their media crusade against Cuban. Revolution.

Other defendants from the group Proud Boys, also arrested for the attack on the Capitol, were convicted of seditious conspiracy and yet the Western press did not classify them as political prisoners, as they did the Cubans, who indicates the manipulation performed. which will damage the image of the Revolution.

Joseph Biggs and Zachary Rehl, accused along with Pezzola, received sentences of 17 and 15 years in prison respectively, without any journalist in the United States coming forward to defend the right to “show and do these things.” act.”

Similar actions taken against Cuban agents of public order, violations of them and even resisting a Police officer and obstructing an official procedure, as done by Maykel Castillo, known for Absorbduring the acts of defiance in the Havana neighborhood of San Isidro in April 2021, supported by the embassy of the United States, and other similar acts carried out by Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara, received the applause of the Yankee rulers and their European allies, however. with awards and resolutions of the European Parliament.

A large group of Capitol attackers were held for two years without trial and no one said a word about it, proof that if the Yankees had to put order in the riots, even if they have a political tone, they do. ignores human rights and They use all unimaginable force to crush them.

If the same thing happens in a country that does not agree to submit to its orders, things are very different and immediately the press in its service knows that it must follow the established script, it’s simple that.

José Martí was right when he stated:

“It is a great political spring to give time to die to what only enjoys a fictitious life.”
