  1. “The United States named…..” There’s your problem. The biggest warmonger on earth is the US. It’s laughable when the US calls out El Salvador. The country that invades everyone, drone bombs innocent civilians, incarcerates the largest population on earth and regime changes everywhere is calling out El Salvador?

    Who has Bukele invaded? Who has he drone bombed? You think he can control the two deadly gangs with soft tactics? There’s a reason El Salvador went without a single murder for 12 straight days recently. That’s never happened before.

  2. “El Salvador is not a democratic country. 
    Per The Economist’s Democracy Index 2020 report, El Salvador is defined as a “hybrid regime,” placing it one category above outright authoritarian states, but below flawed democracies, let alone full democracies. 
    El Salvador’s political culture scores a 3.75 out of 10, and its “functioning of government” notched a similarly low score of 4.29. Civil liberties came in at 6.18. In fact, no other Latin American country fell further towards authoritarianism in 2020 than El Salvador. […] In February of last year, armed soldiers and law enforcement personnel accompanied Bukele into the nation’s parliament building. The president demanded that opposition lawmakers approve his plan for a $109 million loan that he claimed would fund the military and police against criminal gangs. 
    In May of this year, the United States named five of Bukele’s aides as “credibly alleged” to be corrupt, including his Chief of Cabinet Carolina Recinos, and Rogelio Rivas, Minister for Security and Justice. […] Bukele’s anti-democratic impulses have also been on full display in his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic dragged on, Bukele repeatedly disobeyed Supreme Court rulings that called on him to respect human rights as he enforced quarantine rules. 
    Security forces have also reportedly detained people arbitrarily in containment centers, and according to Human Rights Watch, hundreds of detainees have been held in “overcrowded, unhygienic conditions that threaten their health.” […]”

  3. tldr; El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele has announced that his country will adopt Bitcoin as legal tender. The Central American nation is not exactly a shining example of human freedom and financial inclusivity. El Salvador’s political culture scores a 3.75 out of 10, and its “functioning of government” scores 4.29.
