Ignoring the violent element in Spanish unionism is blind or propagandistic, but Spanish unity takes precedence over all else, including the truth
This is the pathetic state that politics in Spain has been reduced to. To outsiders it seems too surreal to be true. Catalans will tell you that surreal became the new normal some time last autumn and that this autumn the crisis will deepen.
it is important for for the international media to avoid misleading people, especially those uninvolved, with half-truths, omission, fanciful speculation and propaganda.

Ciudadanos are social and political pyromaniacs, unable to stop pouring petrol on the fire, as they see it burning a way to power. The legal abuse of Catalonia and the Catalans by the Spanish State since last summer has been dependent on the complicity and false testimony of Ciutadans.

The Nazis in Spain are those that tattoo swastikas, or similar, on their skin or glorify the Third Reich. The terrorists in Spain are those who have committed or incited intimidatory violence for their cause. To call a Catalan independentist a Nazi or a terrorist in 2018 is an abomination.
Do not cross the Spanish or you will live to regret it. Or not. It is obscene. It is, and always has been very obvious where the violence and hate are coming from in Catalan society, and with every day that passes it becomes clearer to the outside world too.
