Burn baby burn: Venezuelans torch effigies of Maduro and Castro brothers

resizer

Some Venezuelans celebrated Easter yesterday by burning effigies of their “president”  Nicolas Maduro.

The burning, flogging, and exploding of effigies of Judas Iscariot on Easter  is a tradition in some Latin American countries, where the feast of Christ’s resurrection is also known as “el dia de Judas.”

As often happens with holiday traditions, the burning of “Judas” — the apostle who betrayed Jesus — evolved into the burning of effigies of unpopular figures.

Yesterday in Venezuela the villain most widely represented in effigy was Nicolas Maduro, but others found their way to the hot seat too, especially some leading government figures, along with Fidel and Raul Castro.

Anti-government protesters burn an effigy depicting Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro in Caracas

 

At the University of the Andes, Venezuelan students torched an effigy of Fidel Castro AND a Cuban flag, to protest the intrusive role played in their country by Castronoid agents.

  1. On the Lehrer Report in a segment on Venezuela, Judy Woodruff managed “objectively” to discuss the issues there with the usual moral equivalence about the violent protestors and Maduro’s seeking stability, and without one mention of Cuba’s involvement in the whole business.

  2. Oh, but Woodruff “gets” it better than all those protesting Venezuelans, just as any and all media types “get” Cuba better than “those people.” She’s a professional, you know–but I don’t mean a professional journalist. And btw, she’s hardly the worst offender, just a routine MSM specimen.
