Chavisteria of the day: Barreto promotes Cuba

Newspapers have been carrying this week end this lovely advertisement from Caracas mayor at large office (click to enlarge).

In this ad Barreto glorifies the inauguration of a rather small looking facility. I have seen bigger works inaugurated by Chavez that did not deserve a half page in El Universal....

However the ad has everything, two images of Barreto, one a montage with Chavez on the top right, where they are pointing to the future I suppose. It also has the words "comrade Chavez". and a few tired slogans. It even has, one wonders why, the logo of the Copa and the logo of Barreto own pet TV, Avila TV, where he plays at having his own TV just as Chavez has a half a dozen at his service. It is almost quaint.....

But that is not the most offensive thing. The Cuban flag floats over the facility and even hides the Venezuelan flag. Provocation? Deep brain washing of the town hall PR personnel? Plain incompetence? Extreme sycophancy? True, there are surely a few Cuban medics in it but the bill is footed 100% by Venezuelan monies....

Obviously there is a psychological pattern to Barreto's behavior...

-The end-

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.
