In a new attempt to discredit freedom of expression, the number two of Chavismo, Diosdado Cabello again attacked Infobae for reporting on the attacks that armed Chavista groups perpetrated in Venezuela, during the regional and municipal elections on Sunday, November 21.
Hair referred to a note published by infobae that reports the repeated acts of violence that occurred in various regions of Venezuela and that they left the balance of one dead and several wounded people.
“Shootings, threats, robberies and beatings: the videos of the attacks of the Chavista groups during the regional elections in Venezuela,” read Cabello on a billboard where he has a clipping of the title of the note. Later he added in all challenging: “These are already tired,” while he crossed out the letters of the headline with a red ink marker as a symbol of rejection of the media.
This is not the first time that Chavismo has attacked Infobae. In fact, Since 2014, the media has been the victim of a blockade by the Nicolás Maduro regime, which does not allow Venezuelans in the country to access the news site and have the possibility of free information.
During his television show, With the Mallet Giving, broadcast on the state channel VTV, the also vice president of the Socialist Party of Venezuela (Psuv), insulted the Mission of the European Union who traveled as observers of the regional and municipal elections that were carried out in the Caribbean country last Sunday, November 21.
“These people believe that we are a colony. I already had the report done. Also they say they come in January. How is it that you think you can come to Venezuela when you feel like it? No, compadre, that is not so! “, declared Cabello.
“What is her name? Queen Isabel? Maybe that name was given to them thinking of Queen Elizabeth … They play the role of stupid, because this gives us neither cold nor heat. I read it so you can see how skewed this preliminary report is. They and who come in January … they should come is in carnivals, disguised ”. Hair said mockingly.
However, the Chavista leader called the head of the observer mission, Isabel Santos, a liar for the publication of the report, which Cabello said had been prepared before the elections.
“Madam, why don’t you read Venezuelan law before sticking your tongue where it shouldn’t?” Cabello said referring to Santos.
