Venezuela to US: You should probably come participate in a “peace commission” on all this violence you’ve caused

posted at 6:31 pm on March 16, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

After over a month of blaming the widespread protests sweeping Venezuela on foreign imperialist agitators, and having expelled American diplomats as well as titled the U.S. Secretary of State a murderer, the Venezuelan government would now like to invite Washington to stop its obviously violent intervention tactics by participating in a “peace commission.” …They are really taking this scapegoatism-propaganda story to a whole new level, via the AFP:

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro urged Washington on Saturday to join a “high-level commission” to promote peace after more than a month of deadly anti-government demonstrations.

Maduro blames the United States for the riots, a charge US officials on Friday dismissed as “absurd.” …

Maduro, speaking at a rally in support of the armed forces, said he would propose a commission “for peace and mutual respect of sovereignty” between Venezuela and the United States that could include parties from both sides and the UNASUR grouping of South American nations.

The leftist president said he would name Diosdado Cabello, the head of Venezuela’s National Assembly, to lead potential talks with the United States “to speak while respecting peace for a dialogue among equals.” …

“The solution to Venezuela’s problems lies in democratic dialogue among Venezuelans, not in repression or in hurling verbal brickbats at the United States,” a State Department official said Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Yeah… fat chance, guys. In the same speech, Maduro evidently referred to these conspiratorial agitators as a whole lot of “Chuckies.” Yes, like the horror-film doll. via Reuters:

Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro warned protesters in Caracas on Saturday to clear a square they have made their stronghold, or face eviction by security forces.

Plaza Altamira, in upscale east Caracas, has been a focus of anti-government protests and violence during six weeks of unrest around Venezuela that has killed 28 people.

“I’m giving the Chuckys, the killers, just a few hours,” Maduro said, using the name of a murderous child-doll in a horror film to describe anti-government demonstrators who have made the normally genteel 1940s square a base of operations.

“If they don’t retreat, I’m going to liberate those spaces with the security forces,” Maduro added. “They have a few hours to go home … Chuckys, get ready, we’re coming for you.”

Riiiiight. If this violence in Venezuela persists, we might start hearing more about the possibility of sanctions and visa restrictions raised by Sens. Marco Rubio and Bob Menendez as well as a handful of House lawmakers pretty quick here.

“I’m giving the Chuckys, the killers, just a few hours,” Maduro said,

Does Maduro know that Chucky never really dies? He always seems to come back.

I confess, it was me. I snuck down there and told a bunch of people that MrObama said that Maduro’s mother wears combat boots.
Hey, who knew they’d get their tighty-whiteys in a twist over that?

Don’t hold your breath Venezuelans…

Obama wants you socialized and he wants America socialized. You’re asking for a loser to come visit.

/Obama = Loser.

“And make no mistake…Another reason for the widespread violent protests is due to Venezuela’s toilet paper shortage,also the fault of the US.” Pres.Nicolas Maduro

sooo, homeboy kicks the US out, then blames all the violence on the US, then threatens the US that they better get back there and help fix it and does so by calling them murderous dolls……

okaaayyyy…../shakes head/

Obama will probably be stupid enough to fall for this.

Warner Todd Huston on March 16, 2014 at 7:29 PM

You’ll beeee sorry:

In a speech at a military rally, Maduro also alleged that right-wingers in the State Department and Pentagon were recommending extreme measures against the Venezuela government, including economic sanctions and even his assassination.

“President (Barack) Obama, if this message reaches you,

you should know that it would be the worst mistake of your life to sign the authorization of the assassination of President Nicolas Maduro,”

he said in a high-octane speech recalling his predecessor Hugo Chavez’s spats with the United States.

The U.S. government says Maduro, like Chavez, is inventing “imperialist” threats to distract Venezuelans’ attention from their domestic political divisions and economic problems.

Perhaps we could send experts like Ed Asner, Sean Penn, Paul Krugman and Harry Belafonte down as observers to explain to Maduro that he has been too conservative and timid, that his stimulus was to small and he made too many concessions to the “Banksters”. Poor Maduro is a rookie compared to these veterans of good government science./

She does look a little like Chucky though and if you are living in a fantasy world anyway and one lie is as good as another, I mean what the Hey.

That’s nothing. Wait till he reveals the super-secret U.S. plan to drop specially-trained commando squirrels in Venezuela to irradiate all their pineapples and steal all their walnuts.

This is a guy who I suspect practices screaming and grimacing in front of a mirror. Like most dictators, he fails to understand three things;

1. “Rap artist” and “Head of State” are two entirely different categories of employment.

2. The cow doesn’t give any more milk after you’ve shot her dead.

3. Crazy does not equal smart, no matter what Marx said.

Of course, The One and JFKook don’t get those three, either, anymore than Hillary!! does. So they’re even.

Just be truthful, admit you and your version of communism failed and you want a massive bail out from your enemy.

Yep, obama is stupid enough to go along with that.

Diluculo on March 17, 2014 at 3:05 AM

possibility of sanctions and visa restrictions

LOL. Visa restrictions? Wow, that’ll really sting.

Because we know how strict Obama is about enforcing visas.

AZCoyote on March 17, 2014 at 4:12 AM

Seriously?! The United States has fallen so far in the eyes of the world that even a 2nd/3rd World punk like Maduro thinks he can call Obama / the U.S. out in front of the whole world?!

What a sad day for this country! :(
