Venezuela: First they imprisoned Leopoldo Lopez, now they’re going after Maria Corina Machado

Via Venezuela News & Views:

One month ago they jailed Lopez, tonight they are after Machado

Maria Corina Machado knew the moment would come and it came today in such a blatantly fascist way that one is speechless. Well, not for long until they find their way to a keyboard.

Let's start with this picture, full of angst, as Lopez and Machado were attacked one month ago, a few minutes before Lopez would be pushed into a Nazional Guard armored car.  The woman is stressed, is scared but is going forward anyway. A true courage that she has been showing every single day in the last month knowing full well that her turn was coming.

What the regime did today was to call for a parliament session that was cut short, without debate, before Machado could present her case. Cabello, the angry perpetrator, a pig in the most Orwellian sense, lifted the session to go personally to order the nation's attorney to make haste with a dossier that can allow for the high court to strip in a matter of days Maria Corina Machado of her parliamentary immunity. Cabello is so vile that he keeps correcting himself from saying "Maria Corina" to say only Maria, as if shortening her name would cut the immense prestige she has to somewhat, I suppose, diminish the immense contempt that Cabello inspires. You can watch a video compilation here if you have the stomach for it.

The proposal to disbar Machado was done by Tania Diaz, who has become quite the evil bitch. I am posting her pic today next because there is no other interpretation that her tight military blouse and ridiculous cap were a fascist statement.  I think that woman has become absolutely incapable of saying anything original, anything out of the party line, anything out of the self indoctrination that she has willingly subjected herself to.

There is no doubt that Machado will be disbarred and probably jailed soon. Panama has offered a right to speech to Maria Corina Machado at an OAS session next Friday and it is crucial for the regime that this does not happen, and that if it were to happen she could not speak as an active representative. I personally think it is too late for the regime to skip this, because even if tomorrow Machado is jailed it would be a nail more in the regime's coffin.  The brutal and ridiculous breaking up of relations with Panama by Maduro, instead of doing it with the US as it should have been if he had any coherence and courage,  is for all at the OAS to see. Barring Machado for attending is not going to help Maduro's cause.

    These people can be as inconsistent and incoherent as they want. It's the Latrine way.

    Ah, Tania, the chavista version of a Cuban castroite classic, the "miliciana." Those females who tried SO hard to prove their ovaries actually made testosterone, and that said ovaries were for the greater glory of the "revolution." Notice I didn't call them women, which would be undeserved. They were shrewish, mean-spirited bitches working hard for the Chulo-en-Jefe, the Maximum Pimp. I know of a particular case who was either a repressed lesbian or such a harpy that no man would go near her; she was fixated on Fidel and made a big show of her devotion, an often aggressively offensive show, including to her exiled sister in Miami, who supported her completely for years like an undignified fool. Yes, the type is quite familiar.
