What is the Chavez campaign doing this time around?
- Gassing students protesting, beating up marches of students walking hands painted in white and raised above their heads.
- Calling political opponents traitors, accusing them of conspiracy to surrender the country to foreign powers.
- Blackmailing the country with the argument that the sitting president (political party) is the only guarantee of peace for Venezuela.
- And the classical argument that all in Venezuela is getting better, that what lags behind is due to sabotage and simply to a lack of time to do all that needs to be done.
Amazingly, the campaign of Human Rights, of progress is held in Venezuela by the opposition while Chavez manages a classical old style right wing campaign.
Update: a couple of hours after writing the above lines I saw this perfect Weil cartoon to illustrate the harsh right wing campaign Chavez is subjecting the country.
