Howdy, folks, and welcome to our 50th installment of VenOpIronía! And since this one’s extra-special, it doesn’t even take place in Venezuela, but right here in Canada. And even this far from Caracas, the Venezuelan oppos can’t help but show their true, “peaceful” (note the quotes), “democratic”, “free speech” face:
That’s Julian Ichim, from Kitchener-Waterloo, telling the hard truth about our widdle fascist friend, MariCori, up there at the lectern, in Toronto, yesterday. And as you can see, he gets handled very peacefully (by being roughed up), and his free speech is heard (by him being silenced).
This little shindig was put on by a group calling itself the Canadian Council for the Americas. Obviously some kind of imperialist “pro-business” front group. Certainly they don’t represent the people of Canada, since this is the first I’ve heard of the fuckers. Apparently, all they ever do is host rubber-chicken luncheons at overpriced venues where right-wing twits from other parts of the continent come to peddle their obsolete regional politics and capitalist economics. Wowzers!
Also, their website is a bug-ridden, unprofessional piece of crap. And their sad little Facebook page only has 84 “likes”. Which is kind of pathetic (and ironic in itself), considering how their self-appointed task is to improve business relations between Canada and those peons sitting on “our” natural resources down south, or something like that.
Even outside of Venezuela, those oppo-fascist ironies just keep on coming, eh?
