Nazism alive and well in Canadian university

A professor at the university of Ottawa, Susan Spronk, has published an article defending the Venezuelan regime’s brutal repression of protesters, a repression which includes shooting people to death at point blank range, torturing them, raping them, and disappearing them, not to forget incarcerating and detaining them in the hundreds and thousands. Her blatant propaganda

China controls all U.S. Internet?

We have heard about the U.S. government’s back doors into internet servers and hubs. Anything the U.S. can do, China can do as well. They just need physical access to the device during the production stage. In every home where there is Internet, there is a modem. For instance, Comcast has Xfinity modems. Where are

Glory to the Brave People

Gloria al bravo Pueblo. That’s how Venezuela’s national anthem starts, and now they have really shown that they are worthy of those words. They have risen up against a regime that for over a decade has used intimidation and implicit threat of violence against protests in order to make people passive and submissive. The Venezuelan

Oligarker är också judar

Venezuelas heroiska uppror söker regimens vänner nedvärdera genom att kalla dem som protesterar “fascistiska oligarker”. Detta argument är likvärdigt med att kalla dem “judesvin” som man gjorde på 1930-talet. Det är dags att vi börjar betrakta likvärdiga beteenden på samma sätt. Så, varför är egentligen rasism förbjuden? Om man får vara lite cynisk så finns

Varför protesterar venezolanerna?

Härom dagen skrev Helsinki Times att det är ett “mysterium” varför venezolanerna protesterar. Det är det naturligtvis inte, det enda mysteriet är hur en så idiotisk formulering kunde smyga sig in i tidningen, för den avslöjar bara journalistens oförmåga att göra sitt jobb och navigera förbi regimens penetrerande propaganda. Men nu finns det en hjälp

Sverige, Ryssland och kriget

Vad har Libyen, Syrien, Ukraina och Venezuela gemensamt? Innan jag kommer till det vill jag fästa din uppmärksamhet på att Sverige redan är inblandat. Den venezolanska diktaturens försvarare bedriver cyberkrig mot alla som försöker hjälpa till att sprida sanningen. För att propagandalögner skall fungera måste man också undertrycka sanningen. Det gör regimen genom att systematiskt

Facebook censures Venezuelan call for help

Facebook has censured an image posted in protest against the crimes against humanity committed by the dictatorial regime of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela. His thugs undressed a protester and forced him to walk naked. In protest many in Venezuela have also got naked, and today there was a naked march in Caracas to call attention

Hur Venezuela liknar Sverige

Det pågående upproret i Venezuela kan för en svensk publik bäst förklaras genom att gå tillbaka i vår historia, till Kalmarunionen, Engelbrekt och Gustav Vasa. Det är oklart hur det egentligen gick till när Sverige gick in i Kalmarunionen, och om det gick rätt till när Sverige hamnade under dansk överhöghet. På samma sätt är

The Battle for Democracy in Venezuela

On April 14, 2013, the Cuban regime stole the presidential election in Venezuela and gave the victory to their Colombian man, Nicolás Maduro. People took to streets all over the country but were gunned down. The candidate who really won the election, Henrique Capriles, caved in and called the protests off. At this point the

Queen of Shame: Elizabeth II

Last Friday, the Organization for American States (OAS) voted to hold their meeting behind closed doors, and then they took the ongoing crisis in Venezuela off the table. They needed two thirds majority to do this, which they barely got, so the votes of each country mattered. Among the 22 votes counted in favor of
