Following a full repudiation of the election, the inauguration, and the seating of dictator Nicolás Maduro by the Organization of American States (OAS), let’s just say respectable countries didn’t bother to make an appearance at Maduro’s inaugural.
The sorry little affair was covered in the press – Stamford Advocate has a good string of stories on it here – showing that only hellhole countries such as Cuba, Bolivia, and Nicaragua, all of which are pretty much run by leftist wannabe dictators of the same stripe as Maduro and Castro, showed up. Nice to see them standing up and being counted.
To show up for something as globally rejected as this – seriously, showing up to support the Maduro regime that is killing Venezuela, while all the world stands and points in disgust – says a lot about the intentions of these dead-end regimes.
Here’s the gross part: from Brazil, representatives from now jailed former President Luiz Inácio “Lula” da Silva’s leftist political party showed up, too.
This kind of shows you what a bullet Brazil dodged when voters rejected these guys outright last year and voted in Brazil’s new conservative president, Jair Bolsonaro, who sports a 75% approval rating among Brazilians. These guys had always been pals and supporters of the Venezuelan regime, and they went there this week to back-slap and show the flag. more here
