Maduro reveals plans to further Cubanize Venezuela

130404210402-venezuela-maduro-nicolas-040413-story-top

The strings that link Castronoid puppet Nicolas Maduro to Havana became a bit more visible yesterday.

Having dismissed his entire cabinet last week, Venenozuelan president Nicolas Maduro addressed his nation yesterday to reveal the identity of his new ministers.

He also announced the creation of "five revolutions" that will do away with the old "bourgeois" state and create a socialist utopia led by "the people."

A cousin of the deceased dictator Hugo Chavez stands out among the new ministers: he was placed in charge of the country's oil production.

For this story go HERE (in Spanish).

Maduro also railed against the Spanish newspaper ABC, saying that it "underestimated the intelligence of its readers by publishing lies."  This is nothing new.  The Chavista government has been accusing ABC of lying for years, and leveled that charge repeatedly when ABC kept reporting the truth about Hugo Chavez's imminent death.

This latest attack on ABC was prompted by an article that exposed government plans to further radicalize the Cuban colony.  The article quoted government documents that spoke of  creating "fighters with a new ethic, with a new value system superior to the decadent anti-value system of capitalism."
