The media assassination of Nayib Bukele: why do the elites bet on the failure of El Salvador?
What Nayib Bukele is doing in El Salvador is dangerous for the elites, not only because it exposes their inefficiency and sets an example to effectively solve problems in most of our nations, but also because it would drastically compromise the power and pockets of those involved and benefiting from poverty factories in our region.

Why is Nayib Bukele so loved within his country and so hated outside his borders by international organizations, NGOs, and other political leaders? The answer is simple: Bukele's management in El Salvador completely exposes the ineffectiveness of the political solutions promoted by the U.N., the IACHR, and other organizations, which have been followed to the letter by many left-wing leaders in the West.
While El Salvador continues to flourish, thanks to Bukele's contrarian approach, the rest of the world sinks with impunity, attacks on institutions, public distrust of politicians, and increasingly dysfunctional economies.
Recent polls show that Bukele, who has not hesitated to pursue criminal gangs and deal with crime firmly, surpasses 90% approval in his country, while on the other hand, leaders like Gustavo Petro, Gabriel Boric, Lopez Obrador, or Alberto Fernandez, who ask to "negotiate" with those who have killed, stolen, and corrupted our societies with kid gloves, see their popularity plummet.

Bukele has been portrayed by the Western mainstream media as a tyrant who violates the human rights of poor terrorists who have plagued El Salvador for decades.
Meanwhile, large headlines and awards are given to figures like Gustavo Petro who, besides belonging to an actual guerrilla and terrorist group in the past, currently negotiates and whitewashes the crimes of these types of organizations in Colombia.
If someone had dared to predict 10 years ago that the president of a small Central American country would suddenly start making headlines in newspapers throughout the West, and that his figure would generate so much "controversy" worldwide, he would have been immediately ridiculed.
It is likely that, since Fidel Castro, a political figure of such a small nation has not raised so many attacks, curiosity, and support, although, in the case of the deceased Cuban leader, he was on the opposite ideological side with policies that are now fiercely defended by the mainstream media that is trying to assassinate Bukele's character.
The existential problem that Bukele represents for these organizations and other politicians in the region is that he shows a path that has proven successful in cleaning up crime from our societies and allowing our countries to prosper and achieving this would leave many NGOs, politicians, and journalists without a job.

Of course they are just trying to adjust to reality, which is even better.
Can’t wait for them to upgrade it even more, once we announce our budget SURPLUS for 2024 😎 https://t.co/OegNYKBOYO
Think about it, if hunger and crime were eradicated in Latin America tomorrow, what would the directors, officials, and workers of the U.N. for the continent, NGOs, and political and media activists who profit from "helping" oppressed social classes in our countries live on?
What would happen to all these bureaucrats if the power of the market and capitalism were to significantly reduce poverty, proving its uselessness? How would they finance their luxurious lifestyles?
What Bukele is doing in El Salvador is dangerous for the elites, not only because it exposes their inefficiency and sets an example to effectively solve problems in most of our nations, but also because it would drastically compromise the power and pockets of those involved and benefit from poverty factories in our region.
In this era where progressive policies have emerged as a single, absolute, and irrefutable truth, where uniform thinking is encouraged, and where big bureaucrats and organizations are qualified to tell us what is true and what is false through their fact-checking machinery and allied media, speaking the truth is absolutely dangerous. But it is even more dangerous to execute it and expose their evil plans. This is why Nayib Bukele's policies in El Salvador to end crime and dismantle the power that states have over the economy through fiduciary money, and soon through completely centralized digital currencies, make him public enemy number one of the established power.
Whatever happens in the future, the president of El Salvador will be portrayed in history as a man who swam against the dominant narrative in an era where not consenting to the impositions of the European Union, the U.N., and the elites of the Democratic Party in the United States is equivalent to seeking a media and political assassination. Many people do not succeed in this struggle between good and evil because they do not have the resources or popularity of Bukele to face these threats and slanders.
Fortunately, Bukele has known how to swim in this sea of "awakened" sharks to stay afloat and generate positive changes for his country, which has translated into the support of over 90% of his population, an absolute record worldwide.
The Salvadoran leader has demonstrated not only that good and efficient governance is possible, but also that it is possible to be loved, respected, and move his country forward, despite the dominant narrative attempting to crush him. All it takes is to remain firm in the principles and moral convictions of a true leader.
