Our daily fascist dose: fascismus turismus

Apparently Laureano, the Friday satire column of Tal Cual, was going to do a stand up in the Venetur hotel of Puerto Ordaz. Some local chavistas got wind of it, made a ruckus and had the show canceled.
.
There is one problem, Venetur hotels are state owned and there should be no discrimination  But it is, it is officially sanctioned, and the tweets of the tourism minister indicate that even a blogger like me, not even there for a show, could be expelled in the middle of the night. Amen of other well known journalists. It starts like that, a comic stand up is banned and next thing you know......

My translation starting for the bottom. Keep in mind that this is the Tourism Minsiter of Venezuela, Alejandro Fleming, the guy that is supposed to make Venezuela attractive for tourists of all types... (I tried to keep the use of capital letters)
  • Too bad that leaders of the world did not speak the truthful truth (it is not redundant) [sic] of our leader, before he became universal!
  • The difference between our leader and "the leaders of the world"  is that our Comandante Chavez made history, the others are footnotes
  • In Venetur Hotels there will be no one allowed [to present a show] that has offended the memory of Comandante Chavez
  • And I take the opportunity to repeat to all Managers of Venetur Hotels that it is an order and that they should be watchful, that is why they are managers
  • Thanks to the Compatriots for alerting us! That is Social Control! To Venetur Hotels the right WILL NOT COME BACK in none of its forms!
  • The Control exerted by the Popular Power is the perfect formula to reach the Perfect Management!!!
See, you cannot make up shit like that!  You have it all, segregation, official snitches, and well organized at that as an official duty, threats, insults, abuse of authority, I am the boss, personality cult, Orwellianism, etc... All in little bits of 144 or less.

Fascism, in short, is short.

PS: As an amusing note. I checked who Fleming re-tweeted.  Among all the mandatory officials to be retweeted, I was surprised to find a former soap opera heart throb of RCTV, Manuel Sosa, one of those who cried when the network was closed in 2007. Well, like other soap operas stars he made his transit to chavismo. There are pictures of him on his tweeter (forget his web page, it sucks). One I put below, tricolor fascist arm band included. But there is one where he is visiting Chavez casket with Maria Gabriela Chavez next to him....  

That is what fascism do to people....... and easily on air brained Venezuelan soap actors.....

Note that "el pueblo" around, the real sincere mourners, are not wearing arm bands, yet.... but he is an actor, who can tell his grief?

  1. How much longer until people are beaten and killed on the basis of such "tweets"?

    So the official memory of Hugo Chavez is more important than the lives and freedom of living Venezuelans.

    Wasn't Nicholas Maduro real cute last night in his presentation, wearing a military style brown shirt? What does he remind you of? Shit is not the correct answer, although could be a close second. SIEG HEIL is more like it.

  4. Daniel,

    The link below is to the "The Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2013" produced by the 2013 World Economic Forum. Out of 140 countries compared, it will be no shock to most of us that Venezuela is at or near the absolute bottom of the rankings.

    I thought you might have some fun with this.

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.
