My new American Thinker post today discussed the growing government crackdown in Venezuela…..here is a portion of it:
“Mr Maduro is banking on two things:
1) The shameful indifference of so many other Latin American countries. The latest player in this shameful game of indifference is the president of Chile who said in a press conference that Chile will not support “….any movement that violently wants to topple a democratically elected government.”
Are you kidding me President Bachelet? With all due respect, are you insane?
How can any democratically elected leader refer to President Maduro as the product of an election?
Please don’t insult our intellegence!
2) The even more shameful silence from the Obama administration.
It’s hard to believe that the man who once said that “we are the change we’ve been waiting for” is quietly watching a government crack protesters’ heads without a loud protest.
Where is the United States? I guess that we are playing golf or telling young people to cancel their cell phones and buy Obama Care.
So Mr Maduro continues to crack heads and call for a further dialogue.
How can you speak with people who are dead, injured or bleeding from your violent treatment?
They will continue cracking heads in Venezuela until the world screams “Enough”.
The first government to scream should be the US!
We need to lead but maybe leadership is not in style these days!”
