TalCual: Pope Francis & Capriles
The “evil” Henrique Capriles was invited by Pope Francis himself to have a private talk in the Vatican. And what has transcended from this stellar visit is that he requested the Pope to serve as mediator in an attempt to bring some peace and reconciliation among Venezuelans, who, by the way, seem eager for, according to several and varied opinion polls.

By TalCual

With their well-known vulgarity and shamelessness, President Nicolás Maduro and Congress head Diosdado Cabello, and therefore all the wild bunch from the Venezuelan left wing, have not stopped treating their adversaries, above all opposition leader Henrique Capriles, by making use of the most cruel adjectives.

Capriles, the leading member of the so-called “trilogy of evil” (he already has posters visible on public roads), gets all the “disgusting toads and poisonous snakes” going through the minds of the people of the chavismo regime, but three adjectives have been the most reiterated and resounding so far: Murderer, fascist and parasite. But it is not easy to get to Capriles with those words, not even with the “wise advice” of Pedro Carreño, a lawmaker on the Government’s side.

Well, that evil creature from hell (Capriles) was invited by Pope Francis himself to have a private talk in the Vatican. And what has transcended from this stellar visit is that he requested the Pope to serve as mediator in an attempt to bring some peace and reconciliation among Venezuelans, who, by the way, seem eager for, according to several and varied opinion polls.

Such events seem not to fit the profile the Government is trying to sell from this leader of the opposition and former presidential candidate.

And this has also put his insulters amid a quite difficult situation which, as said by Capriles himself, has forced them to a total silence that indicates the degree of impotence Francis has put them into. We have barely heard one or two small-time sergeants babbling about the local ecclesiastic hierarchy pulling some strings to perform some maneuvers against the Government.

The truth is that it does not look like a good idea to mess with His Holiness, who besides boasting that condition has set off a worldwide furor due to all the changes he announces or suggests practically every single day in an overwhelmed church due to the history of the world, with a “leftist” style that reminds us of Pope John XXIII.

So much enthusiasm he is causing that Forbes Magazine just ranked him among the top 5 most powerful on the planet despite the fact he does not have any military divisions in his charge, as once said by “comrade” Stalin.

Francis was taken to the highest position in the Catholic Church, among other things and according to Maduro, thanks to the influence of the ghost of Hugo Chávez in Heaven.

But beyond this delusion, is not this paradoxical situation showing us an outrage, insanity from the Government of ruling the country with the use of insults and aggressions, since we are all suffering an economic quake of too many degrees that needs the cooperation from many people to perform rescue efforts which, according to Rafael Ramírez (vice-president of Venezuela’s economic area) it would take around 50 years to fix? This is because logically there are only two propositions in the game.

Or perhaps the fantastic new Latin American Pope (this also counts and very much) is an accomplice of the trilogy of evil after conceding such promotional resource to Capriles, or the offensive and continuous adjectives against the opposition which all it does, as its name suggests, is opposing to something, are direct consequence of the ignorance and abuses in the use of a power that is way too big for those currently ruling this country.

If Francis, quite a busy man, wants to embark upon Capriles’ request, no matter whether he does through third parties, we believe in TalCual that the first task to be carried out is that of recommending our rulers not to treat the country as it was a local bar or a bordello, that certainly would make the foul air we breathe today more breathable.
