What’s Going on in Venezuela? 0

David takes a look at what’s happening in Venezuela. He suggests that

(a) disturbingly large portion of “the left” is getting events in Venezuela really wrong, opting to stand behind Russia-backed strongman authoritarian Nicolas Maduro.

I’m posting this because I have no idea what’s going on there, except that I know it’s not good, and I know also that the U. S. press has a horrible record of misreporting events in Central and South America, so I think a perspective would be welcome. I will also note the David has some credibility regarding South American politics, as he’s originally from Buenos Aires.

(Here’s another perspective from Badtux.)
