Yesterday was the anniversary of Hugo Chavez’s revolution. Hugo has been a busy boy. He has shut down TV & Radio stations that dare to present opposing views. He sic’ed his legal (and sometimes illegal) attack dogs on journalist that dare investigate him or his minions for the plethora of crimes that they commit every day. It is the Chavez that has dismantled Police Departments deemed politically unsafe but in doing so, criminals have had a field day murdering their merry way into riches. And of course, to “reduce the increasing crime,” Chavez has disarmed the population in order to “keep them safe.”
The result has been a total debacle in security for the average Venezuelan. He cannot find news other than those approved by the Red Government, He is unsafe both at home and in the streets and he cannot speak his mind and address grievances for fear of being attacked. And being disarmed does not help one single solitary thing.
And while TV stations were present at the time of the happenings above, these images were not transmitted live.Why? Because thanks to Venezuela’s equivalent of The Fairness Doctrine Law, all broadcast media is mandated by law to transmit immediately and concurrently, any government message or event as they demand it. The second all stations were focused on Chavez, the police attacked demonstrators sitting peacefully at a local square. Twitter messages and uploaded pictures to photo hosting accounts or video to Youtube filled the blackout vacuum. Still the result was the same: Chavez and the Repressive Police won, Subjects lost. And he has announced that Twitter, Facebook and the Internet in general are contra revolutionary tools and as such they need to be addressed.
Jump across the Caribbean and one day in a Tea Party that happened somewhere in the US, a man addressed grievances as per the First Amendment.
With a small reminder of the Second Amendment.
We keep telling you, it ain’t about duck hunting and politicians know it. That is why they are so scared of the 2A.
