I can go on an on about the corruption of the Organization of American States, the despicable acts of its president, and how it has become a tool for tinpot dictators and criminal regimes. But then again, I wouldn’t be telling you anything you didn’t know.
Today’s OAS Vote: Autocracy v. Democracy
Today, Venezuelan opposition leader, Maria Corina Machado, was invited to speak at the Organization of American States (OAS) by the Panamanian government.
The Venezuelan government and its allies were so afraid of what she had to say, that they made a motion to make it a private session, shutting out the public and the press.
The motion passed 22-11.
Which were the nations that supported secrecy and autocracy?
Obviously, Venezuela, joined by Brazil, Nicaragua, Uruguay, El Salvador, Argentina, Bolivia and the CARICOM nations.
Which were the nations that supported transparency and democracy?
Panama, which hosted Machado, along with the United States, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Honduras.
A shameful spectacle.
