TalCual: 1960s Style Nonsense in Today’s Venezuela
An economic blockade against the country does not exist, but the one chavistas have in their ideas is very much alive

By TalCual

The illegal National Constituent Assembly (ANC) returned last Tuesday when its members "debated" on the threats of imperialism and its local allies against the homeland.

It seemed like talking about the negative consequences that imperialism had for Latin America throughout history in some university cafeteria from last century.

Delcy Rodríguez, president of the ANC, opened "fire" against Mr. Trump, repeating the same well-worn arguments that members of chavismo believe justify the disaster going on in the country. According to the former foreign minister, Venezuela is not getting food and medicines thanks to the measures taken by the U.S. government last Friday.

This is the same person who at an OAS meeting claimed, with a bit of a nerve, that the country had enough food and medicines to supply three nations with.

The language used was kind of outdated, too. "Pitiyankis," sell-outs, lackeys, bootlickers, and traitors to motherland were some of the various terms used to describe the Venezuelan opposition, naturally all of them with lots of "love" in order not to contravene a law against hatred that members of the ANC will be passing soon.

If those terms, the praises to glorify the late Hugo Chávez and all the ass-kissing on Nicolás Maduro were removed from speeches, the interventions from the U.S. would be significantly reduced.

The members of the ANC still have no idea why the Berlin Wall fell, that Putin is not Stalin – even if they both have their similarities –, that they don’t look like Fidel Castro no matter if they grow beard, and that the world is a very different one from that of a few decades ago. An economic blockade against the country does not exist, but the one chavistas have in their ideas is very much alive.

This illegal ANC is a waste of time and money and is only good to suppress, persecute, defame and threaten. Its first victim was the former Attorney General Luisa Ortega Díaz, but next up are all the opposition lawmakers from the National Assembly (AN), followed by the candidates for governor of the democratic sectors for the elections to be held on October 15.

To this must be added all the Venezuelans who disagree with a corrupt and failed regime that is responsible for the serious situation of the country and that makes no decisions to improve their living conditions. This is yet another failure of the so-called Bolivarian revolution.
