In recent weeks, American journalist Abby Martin has embarked in falsely accusing the opposition in Venezuela, as well as journalists from Venezuela, and outside Venezuela, claiming the other journalists have made false claims that Martin, and Prysner work for the dictatorship of Venezuela. Martin and Prysner have also claimed these other journalists were inciting violence against the two for posting facts about Martin and Prysner.

We shall look at the evidence to see who is telling the truth of this.

If we look on wikipedia on who Mychael Prysner is, this is the information we get.

Michael Prysner (born June 15, 1983) is an American political activist. He is the co-founder of March Forward!, an organization of active-duty members of the US military and veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars who encourages current active-duty service personnel to resist deployment.

Prysner is a US Army veteran who served in Iraq. His rank was corporal. According to Prysner, his duties in Iraq included ground surveillance, home raids and the interrogation of prisoners, and these experiences led him to take a radical anti-war stand.[1][2]

In 2008, Prysner ran a write-in campaign for the US House of Representatives for Florida's 22nd congressional district (Boca Raton).

He is a member of Party for Socialism and Liberation.[3] He is also a member of A.N.S.W.E.R..[4]

In November 2011, Prysner was arrested in Occupy Los Angeles.[5] He was released after posting bail.[6]

Prysner is also a producer and co-writer for the program The Empire Files, with Abby Martin.[7][8][9]

He performed the rap "Skit 6" on the album Soundtrack to the Struggle.[10]

Not only is Prysner a member of "Party for Socialism and Liberation" as well as being a member of A.N.S.W.E.R., but according to Prysner himself his experience in the U.S. military "included ground surveillance, home raids and the interrogation of prisoners". Which would be an experience that is beneficial to the Venezuelan dictatorship of Maduro, since Prysner and Martin in essence work for the socialist dictatorship of Venezuela.

Here is a link to wikipedia about Abby Martin.

First of all, even though Abby Martin and Michael Prysner are Americans, their work is endorsed and published in Telesur, whose primary government sponsor is "the Venezuelan government". Other governments such as Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Uruguay, and Bolivia contribute as well to the news agency.

La Nueva Televisora del Sur, C.A. is a public company which has various Latin American governments as its sponsors. Its primary sponsor is the Government of Venezuela while other governments such as Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Uruguay, and Bolivia contribute as well.

Telesur does not allow any news that is critical of the dictatorships in either Cuba, or Venezuela. in fact, they only post news that is very biased in favor of these socialist/communist dictatorships.

Martin, and Prysner have accused journalists in Venezuela, and outside of Venezuela who are critical of the Venezuelan dictatorship and have claimed they work for the U.S./CIA, which sorry to say is not true.

George V Carrasquo, Profesor Ciencia Política, USB y UCAB. Consultor en Opinión Pública y Campañas Electorales posted in twitter some revelatory photos showing where Martin, and Prysner's loyalty lie.


Also, note that nowhere does Carrasquo "incites any violence against Martin and Prysner", he just exposed, alongside other journalists in Venezuela and outside of Venezuela that both Martin and Prysner are obviously working with the Venezuelan dictatorship.

In one of the photos we can see Michael Prysner together with two members of the GNB (Venezuelan National Guard). We can also see Prysner using the universal socialist/communist sign of the "closed fist".

Here is a photo showing both Abby Martin, and Michael Prysner posing with Freddy Bernal and behind all three is a photo of Chavez. Notice that Prysner is once again using the universal "closed fist" sign of socialists/communists.

In fact, the GNB( Venezuelan National Guard) has been caught in the past robbing journalists who try to expose the truth in Venezuela. in the following link you will find photos showing what the GNB does to real journalists in Venezuela.


In fact, another reporter posted the following in his facebook page. (You don't have to login to read this)

Reporter Ernesto Arce
June 3 at 8:17pm ·
Prysner told the standing room only crowd at a room in the First Unitarian Church on 8th street that Venezuela's 1 percenter elites are angry that they've lost full control of the country and its economics over the last two decades. While covering protests independently - although sympathetic of the government of Nicolas Maduro - he says waves of violent, anti-government protesters surrounded them. They claimed affiliation with a U.S. cable network so as not to rile the crowd.

"I have no doubt," said Prysner. "Had they known we were from TeleSur, they would have attacked and most likely killed us there on the spot."

Both Prysner and Martin lied claiming they were affiliated witha U.S. cable network when in fact they were, and are working for the dictatorial government of Nicolas Maduro.

I do not condone any violence against these two socialist reporters, but the truth is the truth. When several reporters pointed out facts about these two, as well as photos showing that Martin, and Prysner posed with elements of the Maduro dictatorship, both Martin and Prysner claimed reporters from Venezuela, and the U.S. were inciting violence against them, when in fact those other reporters were just showing the truth about these two socialist journalists.

Thanks, btw I did forget to mention that Abby Martin, and Michael Prysner were also posing with Freddy Bernal (behind them is a photo of Chavez). Bernal has been regarded as "Chavez's most trusted mayor in Caracas".

Freddy Bernal is the ex-mayor (2004–2008) of the Libertador Municipality in Caracas, Venezuela and a member of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV).
The BBC described Bernal as President Hugo Chavez's "most trusted mayor in Caracas", adding that the "opposition regard him as ultra-revolutionary".[2] Bernal was also a leader of the Bolivarian Circles.[5]

Added that info on the op.

Closed/raised fist isn't necessarily a socialist or communist thing though is it? I thought it was just a general symbol of resistance to authority?

No. It is the sign of socialist/communists. How could it be " general symbol of resistance to authorities" when socialists like these two are working for the socialist dictatorship of Maduro? Communists like Maduro, Chavez, the Castros etc have also used this sign alongside many others. The closed fist is a sign to oppose any other type of government or economy not based on socialism. But socialist/communist nations have used it since the 1930s.

Every group/person that uses the closed fist is a socialist/communist/revolutionary.

Iconography based around the fist can regularly be seen in early propaganda by labour organisations, such as a famous 1917 propaganda cartoon by the Industrial Workers of the World, a revolutionary US trade union.

But it was the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39, when the Popular Front or anti-fascist salute was used as a greeting by Republican forces fighting Franco's Nationalists, which truly popularised it.

Though the Spanish Republicans were defeated, their salutation was adopted by left-wingers and opponents of fascism in Europe. To this day the clenched fist holding a rose remains the logo of the Socialist International, to which the UK Labour party is affiliated, as well as a number of European socialist parties including those in France and Spain.
Image caption Socialists, such as Tommy Sheridan, have used it for a long time

In turn, it was incorporated into the symbolism of a range of radical groups. These included the feminist movement, whose image of a fist inside the female gender symbol was popularised during protests against the Miss America Beauty pageant.

Black Panthers, the various socialist, and communist parties, BLM and sympathizers of BLM among other socialist/communist/revolutionary groups use the clenched fist as a symbol of their far left wing ideologies.

It's ironic that it began as a counter against fascism, when fascism is another branch of socialism, and supposedly the clenched fist is "against repression on groups with far left wing ideologies", but in truth those who use it either ignore or dismiss the fact that over 110-160 millions of people have died because they would not be a part of such far left-wing ideologies, and many millions more have been imprisoned for not "submitting" to socialism/communism".

In sum the communist probably have murdered something like 110,000,000, or near two-thirds of all those killed by all governments, quasi-governments, and guerrillas from 1900 to 1987. Of course, the world total itself it shocking. It is several times the 38,000,000 battle-dead that have been killed in all this century's international and domestic wars. Yet the probable number of murders by the Soviet Union alone--one communist country-- well surpasses this cost of war. And those murders of communist China almost equal it.

The above is only showing the murders of civilians, and not the body counts of wars, and it is not showing the tally from "socialism".

Socialists/communists tend to claim that "they fight injustice and want to bring equality to all, etc". Yet these ideologies have spawned the most authoritarian, repressive dictatorships in the 20th and 21st century.

Great work! During the past week I confronted her on her fb fan page, and she clearly told me the Venezuelan government is her client. Her "news reports" are a commodity produced with money from the Maduro regime to be broadcasted on this government owned TV channel. Her reports are totally framed and bias. On her previous video, I questioned her on why she associated 38 deaths to the opposition when several of the deaths she was counting were not demonstrators, but looters who died electrocuted by accident. After I sent her that question on a public post she blocked me from her fan page.

I commented about her lies on her latest video in teleSUR, and a bunch of her followers started to bash me. Below is the link to the debate in case you may want to join:
