I wasn’t going to write again for a few days … I have some things to take care of … but … my wife and I were discussing the ineptitude of Venezuela’s opposition leaders. Ineptitudes such as Enrique Mendoza’s more-than-absurd statement that he/they will begin providing referendum results as at 2:00 p.m. on August 15, 2004, the day of the referendum itself.
Does he, Mendoza, really believe that people are complete idiots?
I rarely use words such as idiots, ridiculous, stupid, etc., … because I find such words degrading and lacking of human empathy or rationality. In this case however, I find it completely justified.
Mendoza, the criminal (and I call him criminal because of his direct complicity in the 2002-2003 sabotage of Venezuela), claims that the Venezuelan opposition has the “technology” to be able to do this.
Is he off his rocker?
Has he lost his mind?
To be very undiplomatic, I think he never had a mind … as far as conscientious, honest and logical minds go.
Who is going to believe such a farce?
How does he (or the Venezuelan opposition) acquire access to such “technology”?
Isn’t the National Elections Council (CNE) supposed to lead, control and manage information regarding the upcoming referendum?
Who does he think he is?
Does he think that every opposition-supporter is going to swallow this?
If in fact he (or the opposition) has access to such “technology” (allowing them to “broadcast” preliminary results), then doesn’t this mean that he and the US-backed Venezuelan opposition is involved in some kind of illegal, illegitimate or clandestine activity?
What is wrong with this guy?
Oops … I forgot … he is one of the irrational leaders of the irrational radical opposition … sorry, my brain had a slight malfunction there!
A few days ago, yet another radical opposition-supporter wrote to me sarcastically asking, “Then why did Chavez only start the social Missions (education and health programs) after the 2002-2003 industry stoppage?”
His response to the question was that Chavez only enacted these Missions at that time in order to win votes now (?). I almost fell off my chair!
Before being able to enact these nation-wide and all-encompassing social programs, the Chavez government had to recruit people to do it, they had to organize … and they had to pass laws through a democratically-elected National Assembly in order to facilitate financing and legality. This is a very lengthy process. Chavez had barely entered into power when the radical opposition (financed by USA tax-payers through the NED) began to sabotage Chavez, the Chavez government and Venezuela as a whole. They never gave Chavez or the Chavez government any reasonable amount of time (let alone, support) … and then they ask a question like this (?).
I don’t get it. Is it possible that the entire radical anti-Chavez movement has lost its ability to think? Is it possible that they have drank so much Black Label whisky that their brain cells have shriveled up and become mummified?
Are all these radicals now relics of an ancient past, soaked and prepared in preservatives for the continuation of their eternal journey into oblivion?
Seems like it.
Where have their brain cells gone to? Did they ever have any?
Oops … I am sure they did have some at some point in time because most of them are “doctores” or “licenciados,” … right?
Sorry about that … I had another mental spasm which was caused by a severe failure of my synapses due to an overload in complex information entering the processor of my feeble mind.
Coming back to Mendoza … OH! … I almost forgot.
What journalists from other countries might like to do in the next several days is to show up early at radical opposition-led “private” conferences (incognito) at the Tamanaco (Las Mercedes) or the Hilton (downtown Caracas, Bellas Artes subway station) … and watch these supposed leaders as they walk in and out of their so-called meetings. They have to go urinate once in a while … just go urinate at the same time and listen carefully … and watch. Some of these guys are totally drunk by 7:00 a.m. … and this is the truth.
There is nothing wrong with being an alcoholic. Many of us drink, and some of us drink continuously and sometimes excessively. What is not exactly logical is to put one’s trust in drunks to run a country if their drunkenness has over-boiled their gray matter, turning it into rancid oatmeal mush.
Of course, these supposed “educated and civilized leaders” will be more careful in hiding their true nature during the next few days … but then again, maybe not.
Oh yes, Mendoza … almost forgot about this guy … sorry, another brain malfunction. I don’t want to personally insult Mendoza the criminal. I just want to talk about his brain cells. Unfortunately, as most people know, the brain controls the body and all its functions … and without a functional brain, the body falters and fails … sometimes losing total control … like a badly-programmed robot. This is the case with this Mendoza character … I think. I don’t know him personally, but then again, I am not talking about him, but rather about his brain and the results of how his brain controls his mouth and his actions.
Why would opposition-supporters even listen to a guy like him? I cannot fathom it.
The Venezuelan opposition leadership (as it is to this day) is like a badly played out comedy … played out by really bad actors who think that the audience is made up of a bunch of brainwashed cult members who will applaud after every spoken phrase. Shakespeare would have had plenty of fun imitating the Venezuelan opposition leaders in a sell-out theatrical production. Such a production would be wonderfully profitable … and highly amusing.
The Venezuela opposition leadership, as it is today, is comprised of nothing more than a bunch of prehistoric people with prehistoric thoughts and prehistoric tactics. They have shown over and over their ineptitudes and their crass and lowly character … their lies, their arrogance and their criminal tendencies.
Just had a thought. Mendoza, Fernandez, Fernandez, Ortega and CAP would make a great team with Bush (the american criminal). They are all on the same wavelength: lie to their followers, manipulate them, brainwash them, use their tax-dollars to destroy lives … and of course … enrich themselves in the process. Blow up buildings and bridges and water purification plants and roads and hospitals and communications lines and electricity-generating stations and schools … and then award themselves the “reconstruction” projects. They threaten people, assassinate them, call for the death of their “enemies” … and murder innocent women and children in the process … without remorse.
One more thing … do Venezuelan opposition-supporters really think that a government can enact long-lasting, positive social measures and programs overnight?
Apparently most do! I am stumped.
And … by the way, I am not assuming that opposition-supporters are “gullible sheep” … far from it … I think that Mendoza is doing a good job of implying it … while laughing behind their backs.
