Commenting on the wave of gang violence that has swept El Salvador, Bitcoin maximalist Max Keiser claims that this is a false flag event by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). He added that it is a “shameful shame” that some Bitcoiners refuse to connect the dots and see it for what it is.

Keizer has often publicly slandered international bankers and what he calls their “fiduciary Ponzi scheme.” A well-known example of this was during a interview at Bitcoin Miami 2021 when he tore up a ten dollar bill calling it trash.

“Here is a ten dollar bill, this is garbage. You people in South Africa, you have your rand, right? That goes to zero. This also goes to zero, the euros go to zero, the yen goes to zero, the Chinese currency goes to zero. Everything goes to zero against Bitcoin.”

In response to gang violence, Keizer calls on bitcoiners not to “be cuckolded” and reject false narratives.

Gang Violence in El Salvador Rises in Record Wave of Murders

El Salvador is under a state of emergency following gang violence that saw people being shot at random in the streets of its capital, San Salvador, on Saturday.

The country’s parliament invoked emergency powers on Sunday morning, which suspended some civil liberties. This move includes expanding the scope of arrestable offenses, restricting public gatherings, and allowing the interception of communications. The measures will last for 30 days.

Sixty-two people were killed, marking the bloodiest day in the country’s history since the end of its civil war in January 1992.

Following the election, the Bukele government is alleged to have brokered a secret truce with gang leaders by providing financial incentives and preferential treatment to keep the peace. However, Paul J. Angelo, fellow for Latin American studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, speculates that the gang leaders are now trying to change the terms of the alleged deal.

“The terms of the previous pact with the Bukele government may have been untenable and the gangs may be trying to change the terms of that pact.”

Is it really about Bitcoin?

Keizer has a different opinion on the matter. Instead of gang leaders trying to negotiate better terms, he claim (it is International bankers are behind the violence at a false flag event. This, Keizer claims, is an attempt to stop Bitcoin.

A false flag operation is an act committed that disguises the real source of responsibility and blames another party.

Sharing Anecdotal Evidence of Game Developer Keiser’s Claims manuel covers said he noticed an increased frequency of violence during the Bitcoin conference last year. He wonders if it’s a coincidence that the impending release of the volcano bonds comes up against the worst day of gang violence in the country’s recent history.

The volcano bonds, if successful, would turn the legacy financial system on its head. In that, for the first time, a nation-state would have generated funds through Bitcoin.
