The unreasonableness of wanting to be free

According to Reuters and the Associated Press, wanting to be free and demanding respect for human rights is apparently quite an unreasonable position. It seems that people who stand for freedom and are willing to fight for human rights are nothing more than cretinous hard-liners.

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Proud to Stand With the "Hard-Liners"

This week, both Reuters and the AP have stunningly labeled Venezuelan opposition leader, Leopoldo Lopez, as a "hard-liner."

Here's Reuters:

"Tens of thousands of protesters against President Nicolas Maduro's government blocked Caracas streets on Tuesday after the arrest of hardline opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez."

And AP:

"President Nicolas Maduro’s government is giving three U.S. Embassy officials 48 hours to leave Venezuela after Washington came to the defense of an opposition hard-liner accused by Venezuela’s leader of responsibility for bloodshed during anti-government protests."

Apparently, for these news agencies, anyone who opposes authoritarianism is a "hard-liner," while those who seek to embrace and conduct business with authoritarians are "moderates."

Today Venezuela stands with the "hard-liners."

And we are proud to stand with them.
