Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!
Public Works Minister Diosdado Cabello says the residents of Chacao who protested the illegal armed seizure of the old Chacao market on 28 March are a “fascist mob.”
The old Chacao market no longer operates. Last week the market was forcibly occupied at gunpoint by a mob of red-shirter chavista thugs supported by Metropolitan Police and national Guard troops armed with shotguns, machine guns, assault rifles, etc.
These uniformed thugs and red-shirted Bolivarian hooligans physically assaulted unarmed Chacao residents who gathered spontaneously to protest the illegal armed invasion of their public market, a public asset which belongs to the municipality of Chacao, meaning it’s up to Chacao’s democratically elected mayor, municipal council and residents to decide the future of the old market.
But Diosdado Cabello has the chutzpah to accuse unarmed civilians of being fascists. What a thug!
Several historical facts about Cabello:
*Diosdado Cabello is a traitor. This is a historical, public fact. He betrayed his oath as an army officer, betrayed the Constitution and laws of Venezuela, and betrayed the people of Venezuela when he conspired/participated in one of the two failed coups in 1992 which sought to topple democratically elected President Carlos Andres Perez.
*Diosdado Cabello is certainly corrupt. He didn’t have any personal wealth when Hugo Chavez was first elected president in December 1998. But today Diosdado is reputedly one of the wealthiest senior members of the Bolivarian revolution. And with the Public Works portfolio he now holds, Diosdado undoubtedly is growing even wealthier.
*Diosdado Cabello is guilty of conspiracy to commit murder. He conspired actively to commit mass murder in April 2002 against unarmed civilians. Together with President Chavez, Diosdado was one of the chief intellectual authors and executors of “Operation Knockout,” a plot hatched by Chavez and other senior regime officials to create a Bolivarian Tiananmen Square Massacre in downtown Caracas
As Vice President in those turbulent months of 2001 and 2002, Cabello also illegally abused the office of vice president of Venezuela to coordinate the violent actions of armed Bolivarian Circles against unarmed civilians and members of the opposition.
It’s said that “A todo cochino le llega su sabado.” It can be hoped that, eventually, Diosdado Cabello’s Saturday will dawn.
