Check out the videos below:
Seriously. Force yourselves to watch them. Now, to all the comeflores around (they know who they are), please answer this simple question:
Instead of criticising those who are protesting, and the opposition leaders that have supported and encouraged said protests, what exactly do you propose?
Let me venture a few guesses:
1- Stay at home, pretend Venezuela is like Switzerland and do nothing, therefore such violence wouldn't have occurred.
2- Keep "negotiating" with the regime that orders its security forces to deal with demonstrators in the way shown in the video.
3- Keep pretending that the regime with which you are "negotiating" -same one that has armed vigilante gangs that are killing and terrorising protestors with absolute impunity- is democratic, and therefore dialogue is the way forward.
4- Keep participating in elections, for, y'know, one day the regime just might allow one of your representatives to win.
5- Keep thinking that dialogue with a regime that does the stuff described above will surrender power one day, y'know when you guys manage to produce a kick ass, wonky manifesto that will turn, as if by magic, chavistas into opposition voters.
Am I wrong? Looking forward to your answers...
