Juan #Guaido is probably the world's most famous LARPer.
Jen Psaki at press conference: We have to deal with the Taliban because we’re dealing with a “reality world here.” So isn’t it time to recognize the “reality world” in Venezuela and talk to President Maduro—and stop the farce of recognizing the powerless Juan Guaido???

Replying to @JoseJuMarti
Communism is good in theory, but in practice it usually just ends up being destroyed in a military coup financed by the CIA.

11 mercs decided to head to Taiwan embassy fully 24hrs AFTER killing #Haiti president. So it’s not on the spur of the moment. They hang around in the embassy for 10hrs. I guess they were just there for bubble tea. Of course NYT and other MSM would not ask questions.

12 years ago today U.S.-trained soldiers overthrew President @manuelzr in a coup that @BarackObama and @HillaryClinton wholeheartedly supported. As a result, Honduras is now a neoliberal fascist narcodictatorship, and Hondurans are forced to flee to save their lives. #RootCauses

Suicide attempts among girls ages 12-17 in the US are up 51% during the pandemic. Even as we fight COVID, we must also address the mental health impacts the pandemic has caused.

Tony Blinken made a big deal about his stepfather’s survival of the Holocaust when he was nominated for Secretary of State. Now that he’s in Ukraine to pledge more weapons & aid, he has nothing to say about the officially backed Nazi march that took place in Kiev last week.
Live: A rally led by #neonazi and radical nationalist organizations in honor of the SS Galicia division is underway in downtown Kyiv. The Kyiv mayor reportedly supported this rally. This is the new low for #Ukraine. redirect.invidious.io/watch?v=qG_-K4p5…

Colombia's far-right oligarch drug lord / ex president / US asset Álvaro Uribe (the real power behind President Duque) said rowdy teenagers protesting neoliberal austerity reforms is "vandalistic terrorism," egging on the cops shooting them. It was a green light for the massacre
As footage goes viral of Colombian police murdering an unarmed protester, top US ally/ex-president Álvaro Uribe tweets a message in praising cops using their weapons to "defend their integrity." Not a single US politician, even the "progressives," will condemn this.

Colombia's US-backed far-right regime is trying to ram through neoliberal austerity measures that drastically increase taxes on poor and working-class people. This led to a huge popular uprising in recent days So Colombian police are massacring protesters to crush the opposition
Urgente: están matando a los manifestantes en varias ciudades de Colombia. Están asesinando a la gente que protesta contra una reforma criminal. Un genocidio por alzar la voz. Que el mundo se entere de lo que pasa en nuestro país .
