Savior of what’s left of Christian civilization and modern incarnation of El Cid, Teddy Roosevelt and Saint Michael the Archangel (according to Tucker Carlson) Vladimir Putin is accusing Pinochet’s secret police of poisoning a political opponent, namely the famous communist poet and Allende official Pablo Neruda.
More specifically Putin’s captive (literally!) media is helping spread a Western mainstream media propaganda meme about the poisoning. (but I thought the western media and Putin were on opposite poles propaganda-wise? At least that;s what Tucker Carlson claims?)
“The Government Junta of Chile was the highest organ of state power in the South American nation during the 1973-1990 military dictatorship. The period was characterized by repressive policies and extensive economic transformation. It is estimated that more than 3,000 people were killed, and tens of thousands disappeared during the military rule….New research into the remains of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda has confirmed that poisoning was the cause of his death in 1973, the poet-diplomat’s nephew Rodolfo Reyes has said.’ The rest here.
Post-Pinochet officials however determined that Neruda was not poisoned.
