What’s Happened to Chavismo?

HAVANA TIMES – Cartoonist Manuel Guillen gives us his vision of the current state of the populist policies funded by the oil revenues of the state PDVSA company that marked what is called chavismo (from Hugo Chavez) in Venezuela, now facing a severe economic and political crisis.

    There is no excuse for insulting the Canadian NDP by suggesting that the members of that party would concur with your nonsensical parroting.

    If as you claim, Obama recognized “the great progress made by the Cuban people” why was the venemous letter dated March 28th, 2016 and purportedly written by Fidel Castro read in full on Mesa Redondo and why did Bruno Rodriguez Carilles make his speech of March 29th, 2016 saying that there would be no reciprocity?
    As for the current Jesuit Pope (Fidel Castro is an ex-communicated Jesuit and Stalin was another), his support of the communist oppressors in Cuba is in direct contradiction with the views and actions of Pope John Paul II who openly supported the oppressed represented by Solidarity against their communist oppressors in Poland. You may find the subject of the Cuban people suffering repression a matter of humour enabling you to “laugh and laugh and laugh” but that only serves to consolidate the view that you have a sick mind.

    Confront the authorities? You really don’t get it, do you?

    Not at all. They were duped because they believed in all that socialist BS.

    First, I am far from being a right-winger, not to mention old. Second, even progressives like me, once made aware of the tyranny of the Castro dictatorship, should come to reject the revolution. Neither universal health care nor public education should have cost the Cuban people their freedom. While we can applaud successes in both of these areas, we decry lack of basic human rights as the price.

    You two old right wingers make me laugh and laugh and laugh. You are from another time and another place that never really existed. All you seem to do is complain about the revolution and the great progress made by the Cuban people which even the Pope and Obama recognize.
