Unequivocal condemnation of all violence on either side of the ideological divide is the only acceptable message to send.
The Spanish government and media want us to believe that fake news bankrolled from abroad, especially Russia, interfered in the Catalan election and at the same time would like us to ignore the massively expensive homegrown production of alternative facts, fake news, post truth, hysterical exaggeration and racist demonisation.
