«The 42nd front of the farc that bears the name of the late Manuel Cepeda Vargas; daily in honor to him perpetual massacres against the Colombian people «
Cepeda Vargas, was a leftist ideologue, perhaps the one who best applied the concept of the different forms of struggles to achieve power, not in vain his comrade Álvaro Delgado describes it in his book All time past was worse: “as an unscrupulous man who fell in love with the Monster that he created together with the communist party (farc), with how Manuel Cepeda Vargas helped the farc to cleanse the communist party of all those who got tired of the massacres and violence that the farc executed.
For his part, Steven Dudley in his book “Armas y Urnas” (weapons and urns) with a single sentence shows how monstrous Cepeda Vargas became: “Manuel Cepeda was an ‘orthodox’ communist who first marginalized the democratic socialists (…) who defended the combination of all forms of fighting. Using both legal and illegal means to take power was Manuel’s creed and, as a member of the PC, he had among his responsibilities to maintain contact with the Farc (…) his indiscretions cost him his life.
Thanks to their tenacity in defending the armed struggle regardless of the method, the FARC have christened their most bloodthirsty front with the name Manuel Cepeda Vargas, it is not in vain that the FARC front that does not mind destroying an entire town In order to assassinate a few soldiers, bear his name, you just have to see how his friend, a member of the communist party Álvaro Delgado, describes him, and how he is shown in the book, weapons and urns, in which they unmask a man who he helped to annihilate his own political party to justify the armed struggle, for a sinister character like this, the popular adage that says the end justifies the means fits very well
The farc learned very well from their teacher and as the book weapons and urns shows, the farc by order of Jacobo Arenas undertook it against the Patriotic Union in order to justify their armed struggle by murdering hundreds of them, it is for this reason that It is unconvincing that both the Patriotic Union and Manuel Cepeda have died at the hands of State Organizations, because in principle it was the same FARC who persecuted those who demobilized, as they do today by assassinating deserters through court martial.
Manuel Cepeda was assassinated in Bogotá on August 9, 1994, and the Colombian State, in the absence of a legal defense policy, was condemned by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights to recognize the murder of Manuel Cepeda and to write a biography about his life. showing him as an integral man, to cleanse the memory of a being that really, if his life was as his comrades in the struggle paint it, has done a lot of damage to our country and rivers of blood have flowed in his hands.
However, this chapter would not end here, as Carlos Castaño Gil himself, creator and Head of the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, in his book my confession, on page 213 confesses to having directed and ordered the Self-Defense Command that ended the life of the Then Senator Manuel Cepeda, in retaliation for a murder ordered by the FARC out of combat, that is, for Castaño Gil, the death of Manuel Cepeda would be a blow that would hurt the FARC.
The Supreme Court of Justice declared the evidence illegal, as it was not provided in due time to the process, thus leaving the belief that State agents were the ones who murdered the UP member, but Carlos Castaño’s testimony is corroborated by his brother-in-law Jesús Emiro Pereira, a confidant of the head of the Self-Defense Forces, assured that he accompanied the command that would take Cepeda’s life.
His son, now senator Iván Cepeda Castro, who has always been a member of the Left wing party and who even lived in communist Cuba during his childhood, was elected senator for the Democratic Pole party, has waged his most stubborn struggle to try to prove that his father was not killed by Carlos Castaño, but by the Colombian State and thus clear the name of his late father, even when Castaño confesses to having ended the life of the last UP senator, Cepeda Castro has tried for all their possible means for the death of his father to be recognized as a crime of the State, but it seems that his interest was not to clarify his death, but rather that in the memory of Colombians I was impressed that it was the Colombian State that took his life.
Now Iván Cepeda Castro as founder of the Manuel Cepeda Vargas Foundation and from his jurisdiction as defender of human rights of State victims has proposed to tell the story of the conflict through organizations such as Memoria Historica who is presided over by the confessed former ELN guerrilla Leon Valencia, if Iván Cepeda has tried to distort the story of his father’s death, how can we expect the story of the conflict to be told? perhaps in the same way in which he tries to hide that the death of his father was executed by Carlos Castaño.
Iván Cepeda is also a recognized detractor of the Military Forces, we must remember episodes and verbal confrontations such as the one he had with retired general Jaime Ruiz who made mention of the son of a late guerrilla leader who always opposed the military jurisdiction, and that It is the reality, Cepeda at the beginning of 2013 demanded the military jurisdiction and finally the Constitutional Court declared him unenforceable. It is really a shame that Colombia is one of the few countries in which the military is judged by the ordinary justice system, which knows nothing about issues, procedures and actions within an armed conflict. But at the same time that Cepeda asks the military to pay for their blunders in the conflict, he asks the farc for committing forced disappearances, laying breakthrough mines, recruiting boys and girls for war where they are raped and later forced to abort, for to attack the civilian population, for kidnapping and extorting they are sentenced to a seat in Congress.
Now let’s talk about Ivan Cepeda’s ties with the José Alvear Restrepo Lawyers Collective, who had the Colombian State convicted of Manuel Cepeda’s death, and who defends the interests of Iván Cepeda in his prosecution process, in addition to the great friendship between Iván Cepeda and Alirio Uribe, former president of that Collective, ex-M19 combatant and who on September 30, 1985, together with 30 other bandits, hijacked a truck, thanks to the reaction of the authorities, 28 were discharged, who before dying blew up The truck killed several civilians with a grenade, only two terrorists survived, including Alirio Uribe, Now in our time posing as a dignified and intellectual man with Iván Cepda they wrote a book defameting former President Uribe called «On the paths of Uberrimo» , this group is recognized for hosting and defending only victims of the State and the paramilitaries, but episodes such as the case of Mapiripán, where that Collective condemned the Colombian State for said massacre in the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. But later, it was possible to prove that of the 20 direct victims that this group presented, 12 were false, of which 2 corresponded to people who were killed by the farc prior to the massacre, 3 were active members of the farc, 2 were alive and 1 had died of natural death, among others, and in part, they asked for precautionary measures for a FARC guerrilla named Rusbel Asdrubal, who later demobilized. In this episode, we Colombians had to pay a sum close to $ 3,000 million colombian pesos for each false victim.
Now Iván Cepeda has lined up batteries against the Democratic Center, a party chaired by former president Álvaro Uribe Vélez, whom Cepeda wastes no opportunity to persecute and defame.
Iván Cepeda, despite having said that his problem was with the head of the extreme right (Uribe), says that he has no personal problem with Uribe, and the most paradoxical thing is that most of the complaints that Senator Uribe has today have been promoted by Cepeda, whom Uribe himself has accused of meeting with paramilitaries in prisons to buy testimonies against him, and according to a statement made before the prosecution, at least two paramilitaries accuse Iván Cepeda of trying to buy testimony against the former president .
Cepeda has repeatedly accused Uribe of having links with the paramilitaries and even of being the promoter of coexistence, not mentioning the fact that the self-defense groups were created by Castaño Gil in the 80s and that coexistence was created as a legal figure through Decree 356. 1994 in the government of then President Gaviria. Cepeda intends not to mention that the paramilitaries who demobilized, imprisoned and extradited it was Uribe himself who he accused of being a paramilitary, but in light of this fact he affirms that he did it to hide the truth, even when the government at that time conditioned the extradition of the paramilitary chiefs that the prosecutor’s office and the Colombian government could carry out the pertinent investigations in the prisons of the United States, a truth so real that Iván Cepeda himself has met with paramilitaries in North American prisons. Cepeda also hides the main reason for the extraditions, and it is that the Uribe government, through the Justice and Peace Law, conditioned their permanence in it to the paramilitaries not to continue committing crimes, but as they continued their criminal activities from prison, they extradited them, hence many former paramilitary chiefs want to take revenge on Uribe and so far there are many paramilitaries who were excluded from the Justice and Peace law who have declared against Uribe, this is a juicy breeding ground for characters who hate Uribe obtain false testimonies, complemented with all the propaganda and disinformation with which they have exposed the opinion against the head of the democratic center.
On September 17, Congressman Ivan Cepeda supposedly held a debate against paramilitarism, but from the beginning he showed that his objective was to stand against the honor and person of Senator Uribe; As it is unconstitutional for one senator to hold a debate against another, he camouflaged said debate by arguing that it was against paramilitarism, but when observing the debate he only focused on Senator Uribe’s public, private and family life, introducing demagoguery and lies that easily former President Uribe managed to dismiss. In the debate promoted by Cepeda, supposedly against paramilitarism, we did not hear the name Carlos Castaño, creator of the Self-Defense Forces, nor the historical background or the reasons that led this character to create said organization, nor the impact that the FARC had on the creation of this monster by assassinating, kidnapping and extorting peasants and businessmen, the debate was only Álvaro Uribe Velez from beginning to end.
Now, there is a question that always assails Colombians and it is; What is the reason why Iván Cepeda hates Uribe so much? Reflecting on the subject, we see that his hatred is such that it allows him to meet in prisons with paramilitaries and seek testimonies against Uribe as certified by the INPEC, we see how every day he seeks a way to attack the former president, such as with an unconstitutional debate in the one that intends to act as a judge and «show» Uribe’s links with paramilitarism, links that he has not been able to demonstrate before the courts.
So far I do not know of an alleged reason why Cepeda distils so much hatred against the now senator Uribe, because while he speaks of forgiveness and forgetfulness for the farc he refuses to forget the reasons for his personal hatred, Colombians do not understand what the reasons are From so much resentment, if during Uribe’s period the opposition was able to exercise politics again, indeed, it was one of the periods in which many leaders of the Left were able to return to the country from their exile to engage in politics, where fewer deaths of leaders of the left wings, trade unionists and journalists there were.
Of course, there was a comprehensive defense of the State against the armed left wings of this country, since they were attacked militarily, politically, economically, propagandistically and above all, drug trafficking was attacked, a fundamental pillar of the economy and financing of armed Marxist groups. , all these achievements in security are obvious and the radical and armed left wings party of this country was deeply wounded to death, so much so that there were massive demobilizations, which implied a disastrous loss even worse than the casualties given to these left armed groups Because a combatant who demobilizes is because he managed to change his thinking, because he was disappointed in those ideas; meanwhile, that a combatant who dies on the battlefield was someone who died faithful to his ideals. The great demobilizations of guerrillas show the great ideological crisis that the Uribe government caused within the armed left , it is obvious that this affected and also damaged the political left wings party. Perhaps Cepeda’s hatred against Uribe can be explained when on February 4, 2008, more than 11 million Colombians marched in repudiation of the farc, and only a month later the representative to the chamber Iván Cepeda called a counter-march in against the paramilitaries who at that time were already in the demobilization process, seeking to overshadow the political defeat of the Colombian people against Marxism, but the curious thing about the matter is that the farc on their anncol page promoted that march and it is said that in several municipalities the farc forced the citizens to march. Perhaps this could shed many light on the matter and why Iván Cepeda categorically condemns any threat made by alleged paramilitaries, or how he overstates any act committed outside the law by a member of the public force and remains silent in the face of the murders he commits daily. the farc, 8it would be good to ask senator Cepeda if the victims of the farc do not have human rights or the human rights of whoever he is defending.
