The Govt and its allies are trying to legalise violent acts like today’s savagery, August 13th, against the opposition’s peaceful march and other recent similar deeds, with the only goal of controlling Venezuelans. I know that calling Venezuelan Govt a tyranny will be considered as imaginative or even fictitious. But reality is clear in this respect.
We can mention, on one hand, the “MSM Crimes Act“, which Chávez’s regime is trying to impose on us. Its purpose is not only to imprison or punish journalists and media executives for their way of reporting the news. No, it’s purpose, much more sinister, is to imprison any Venezuelan for expressing his own free opinions.
Their real goal is to spark dread among the population, accusing cinically the independent MSM of “attacking Venezuelans’ mental health”.
In any case, what’s more enraging is the way Chávez expresses himself lately, shouting that FARC are not terrorists or giving violent speeches, insulting or swearing at his supposed “ennemies” (“pitiyankees”, “we are going to pulverize them”, “just give them gas of the best sort”, “rubbish yankees”,…).
The kingdom of no punishment for his followers
“If you see her, don’t hesitate to shoot”. Those words, with Chávez, are pure routine. My particular experience allows me to say it clearly. Of course, this can’t be shocking at all if we consider that his strategy is precisely built on hate, on pulverising his opposition. The fortune of thinking differently is the root of this new danger that creepingly, menaces millions of Venezuelans*.
*(More information in the Spanish blog Elentir here, which shows the threatening menaces against me in the forum of a pro-Chávez site, with total impunity. Among other things, you can see screen captures of those menaces. That is, the kingdom of no punishment against his followers). [T&P NOTE: The blog post about those menaces in T&P can be found here].
Just consider another truly grave deed happened on Aug 13th: the savage behaviour of the police and Chávez’s armed gangs, against the students’ march formed by deans of university, professors, journalists, parents, just to deliver a document to the National Assembly, in which they rejected the project of a new education Law, Communist-style. Law which was passed against the majority of the Venezuelans. Several people were hurt after the brutal beatings.

On the other hand, some days ago, it was also notorious the attack of a group of armed men riding motorcicles, friends of Chávez, on Globovisión TV Channel, attack that could have caused a massacre. The regime is speaking night and day of the arrest of this attack’s authors, whose leader is the so-called “revolutionary colleague” Lina Ron. But of course, everyone knows that this is just a distraction and that soon they will be free again.
Massive shut of MSM
Moreover, this Castro-Chávez revolution of “Fatherland or death” wants to accelerate the imposition of the ruling way of thinking. That’s the cause of the shut down of 34 radio stations and one TV channel. Around 200 are also threatened.
As a conclusion, in this terror escalation, the reason of everything is the regime’s urgent need of legalising adoctrination, repression and punishment on dissidents. Or, to say it plainly, to make everything they want without any Law to stop them from it.
