Chavismo paratroopers

So today about 300 hundred students tried to go to the CNE, Venezuelan electoral board, a.k.a Electoral Ministry, to present complaints and requests on the electoral abuse of the regime. Not that anyone was expecting Chavez election minister Tibisay Lucena to comply, but it would have been nice for a change that she dispatched a secretary to receive the letter. Or at least earlier than what she eventually did.

Sure enough the march was intercepted. But not by the police or the Nazional Guard, by Tupamaros who are no better than storm troopers.  The march did not make it to the CNE. At this time 4 injuries are reported.

It is not idle to note that PSUV representatives NEVER have any trouble to reach the CNE offices whereas for opposition representatives it must be done discretely, off peak hours, preferably through back doors, if received at all. Tibisay Lucena gets obfuscated when State Department officials suggest that the CNE could act with more transparency. The regime went as far as suspending "talks" because Jacobson words were considered an interference. Worry not, Venezuela oil keeps flowing uninterrupted to the US since it is the last client left that pays in hard cash, and on time. They may be commies but they like greenbacks.

Of course, in Venezuela Tibisay is not obfuscated anymore, so used is she to give us the finger, or send paratroopers to quell native's unrest.

    It seems to me that the fact this entry has not provoked any response is that we have become jaded about are "normality". Of course ... what could we have expected, bouquets of roses? Such is life under the Regime.

    1. And yet it got more unique visitors than posts with comments....

      The thing is that I have learned long ago that some posts are complete or definitive enough not to elicit comments.


Comments policy:

1) Comments are moderated after the sixth day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the basic rules. I will be ruthless in erasing, as well as those who replied to any off rule comment.

This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
