John Oliver, a renowned 'progressive' TV host based in the US made us a great favor. He proved, once and for all, that: first, US 'progressive' ideas have nothing to do with 'left'; second, US corporative mainstream media is made of nothing but utterly and pitiful Orwellian propaganda without a single shred of logical reasoning, facts or truth; third, US citizens (those sneering jellyfishes attending the show and all the fans of Last Week Tonight) are far more brainwashed and stupid than the most retarded being living inside North Korea borders.
But let's be fair. Let's watch the totality of his preposterous deprecation of Venezuela:
The US faked left
Then, of course, one must search about and debunk this childish propaganda mixed with pure LIES. I propose both. I watched Mike Prysner's analysis on John Oliver's lies and I highly advise you to watch it too. Compare the childishness of John Oliver's non-arguments (Maduro eating a banana) with the deepness of Mike Prysner's counter-arguments based on facts such as official UN statistics, footage contradicting John Oliver's assumptions, articles of the Venezuelan constitution, etc.)
Real left debunking US crap
Having watched this special episode of Empire Files (one of the most brilliant and provocative TV shows on Venezuelan Telesur English), one should do some research too. To check the facts, of course. Aren't Western lying media supposed to adore 'fact-checking'? Well, so let's do it! Let's fact-check all the lies and offenses John Oliver said live on HBO (US mainstream lying media).
Let's do it. If we do so (and I did it before John Oliver's show on Venezuela and Mike Prysner's reaction), we will easily understand why John Oliver is a scandalous liar working on an Orwellian US media, and why Mike Prysner is so right.
The idea is to invite you to watch a list of unmissable documentaries and debates on this hot issue. And, even better, to read unmissable books and documents (including US declassified documents) on this same hot issue.
Most of the people breathing in and breathing out in this round-shaped rock are pretty sure Venezuelans live under the brutal rule of a mad dictator. Yet, all those thinking likewise, spent zero seconds of their lives researching about Venezuela. All they (don't) 'know' was 'learned' watching the same mainstream media that were 100% sure about plenty of lies with outrageous consequences:
- Saddam's weapons of mass destruction - PROVED TO BE WRONG
- Genocide of Bosnians, Croatians and Albanians by Serbia - PROVED TO BE WRONG
- Lybians massacred by Kaddafi - PROVED TO BE WRONG
- Russian interference on US biased and undemocratic elections - PROVED TO BE WRONG
I mean, if you think Venezuela is a dictatorship where the people are starving, you probably are a victim of your own illogic approach towards reality. Of course, you can't count on those who lie to you all the time about every important political issue... to be the source of information about the Venezuelan political situation! Of course, you can't! And by the way, if you believe Venezuelans are starving to death and you have no idea that, in Yemen, millions of people are literally starving to death thanks to the unspeakable genocidal crimes committed by 4 terror states (USA, UK, Saudi Arabia, and UAE), you definitely need to do some research. So let's start researching!
A few months ago, the US journalist Abby Martin (host of Empire Files) did this series of short-documentaries on the so-called Venezuelan economic crisis:
Abby Martin & Venezuela's Minister of Economic Planning
Abby Martin Meets the Venezuelan Opposition
Inside Venezuela's Markets: Propaganda vs. Reality
Abby Martin Fact-Checks "No Free Press in Venezuela" Claim
Venezuela's Constituent Assembly: Dictatorship or Democracy?
Venezuela's Defense Minister Responds to Criticisms & Trump Threats
Two days ago, another brilliant US citizen, Lee Camp, interviewed Abby Martin for his show Redacted Tonight VIP (his main show Redacted Tonight is even better, hyper-critical, hyper-informative and hyper-provocative). As you can guess, they talked about John Oliver's piece of pitiful propaganda.
John Oliver's main 'concern' about Venezuela is the bad shape of its economy. He had some fun vomiting childish and empty anecdotes, but he never mentioned the reasons behind the so-called economic crisis, and he didn't expose the US and Venezuelan criminal sociopaths behind it. What a shame!
To debunk all the childish lies about the Venezuelan economy, you can read the report made in the US on the economic and social indicators of Chávez administration.
And to understand why and how artificially created from abroad is the economic 'crisis' in Venezuela, read this book:
US INTERFERENCES IN LATIN AMERICA
Oh man, 3? Really, only 3? John Oliver said the US only interfered in 3 countries! What about Nicaragua 2018 (now)? And what about Venezuela 2002-2018? And Honduras' coup d'état in 2009? And Haiti's coup d'état in 2004? What about the bombing and military occupation of Granada in 1983, one of the tiniest nations on Earth? And the dozens of years of proven and recognized terror acts against Cuba (shooting down civilian air-crafts, poisoning water supply facilities, burning and infecting plantations with deadly bacterias, etc.)? And Brazil 1964? And Panama 1989? And the coup d'état in 2002 against Hugo Chávez? And so on...
2 incomplete lists of US criminal and illegal interventions in Latin America:
But sure, lists are not enough. We must fact-check what is said in these lists. A perfect document where to start searching about US criminal interventionism in Latin America is the book What Uncle Sam Really Wants, by Noam Chomsky:
- What Uncle Sam Really Wants (PDF)
- For a list of Noam Chomsky's books in PDF in English, Spanish and Portuguese click here.
Also, essential reading is this list of books written by the US-Venezuelan researcher named Eva Golinger. Please try to find and read the English versions of the following books:
Furthermore, we should understand why and how the US Terror State implemented and still implements all these despicable crimes against humanity. To do so, one must read this book:
Or, at the least, watch this documentary:
US INTERFERENCES IN VENEZUELA
And by the way, the USA interfered and keep interfering a lot in Venezuela. While the average Joe in the US loves the criminal Trump or hates the criminal Trump (and therefore loves the Clinton criminal gangsters) and buys the most absurd lie ever told (Russia interference in US elections), the US interferes in everything possible in Venezuela without the knowledge or concern of all those brainwashed Joes. Although all these illegal and often criminal interferences are paid by the US taxpayers, most of them never heard about the US organizations behind it:
- National Endowment for Democracy
- Council on Foreign Relations
- Albert Einstein Institute
- Freedom House
- International Republican Institute
- National Democratic Institute
- Hoover Institution
- American Enterprise Institute
- and others
If the average US citizen knew something about these institutions and about the hundreds of millions of dollars annually spent on these institutions whose the acknowledged intentions are interfering as much as possible in everything possible in order to destroy insubmissive leftist governments, first, he would be ashamed to talk about the Russia interference anecdote and, second, he would do or should do what the brave Ken O'Keefe did: renounce his US citizenship. And he should learn Spanish just to be able to read the book La Agresión Permanente in which, one by one, all these criminal US institutions are exposed!
Going back to the US interventions in Venezuela, it was absolutely ridiculous to watch John Oliver skipping the most obvious one: the US-sponsored coup d'état in 2002 against Hugo Chávez! I remind you that John Oliver was precisely talking about Venezuela! What a shameful circus!
Instead of explaining it, I propose 2 very interesting documentaries, the first by the best journalist alive, mister John Pilger:
War on Democracy
The Revolution Will not be televised
US INTERFERENCES EVERYWHERE
Yes, yes, instead of blaming Russia for the interferences Russia did not do, US citizens should focus on the criminal US interferences committed all over the planet. Yes, you do interfere a lot, not only politically, but also military and economically.
For instance, 1 million communists (plus relatives and friends) killed in Indonesia in 1965 was the USA's fault! The killing of the brave, socialist and democratically elected president of Congo was the USA's fault! If the USA wouldn't have intervened, killing Patrice Émery Lumumba in 1961, instead of a capitalist market of human slaves, Congo could be a prosperous socialist nation. Mohammad Mosaddegh was the head of the Iranian democratically elected government that was illegally removed in a CIA coup in 1953. And so on. There are too many examples! It takes several lives to mention all the US criminal interferences around the world.
But well, a perfect book to start exploring the omnipresent US criminal interferences is the book The Shock Doctrine, written by Naomi Klein:
- The Shock Doctrine (PDF)
By far, the Venezuelan Constitution is the most democratic constitution among the countries with representative democracies. For instance, it is possible to take down a government by collecting a certain amount of signatures, giving its citizens the power to remove a democratically elected government that doesn't do its job. And by the way, the US constitution, in many aspects, when compared with the Venezuelan constitution, is a very bad joke!
You want to know more about it? Just read it:
EVIDENCE OF TERRORIST 'OPPOSITION'
US media and the media of all US vassal states insist that the democratically elected government of Venezuela cracks down on 'peaceful' protesters and oppresses them. Not only this accusation is totally false (no evidence whatsoever), but worst, this "opposition" is NOT peaceful. It is not peaceful to burn pro-government people alive, burn public hospitals and universities and kindergartens, destroy dozens of tons of stored food, destroy and burn public transportation, close public roads, fire rockets against the police, exploding bombs resulting in the death of pro-government civilians and policemen, etc. You must be a jellyfish to buy such Orwellian false 'truth'. If you think otherwise, please try to act the same way in the USA or in the UK, and then tell me how did the police react (to your 'peaceful' crimes)?
Below there's a list of evidence of what I just said. I could show you more, but unfortunately, the censorship imposed by Facebook and Youtube / Google (2 US companies) destroyed a big part of the evidence. If you don't believe, count, in this article of mine, how many videos are no longer available:
And in this one, half of the links (to Facebook and Youtube videos) with evidence against Venezuelan opposition are no longer available:
Yes, Facebook and Youtube systematically censor critical information about all the crimes committed or supported by US Terror State all over the planet. Not only information concerning the US aggression on Venezuela, but also concerning US aggression on Syria, Libya, Yemen, Iraq, Honduras, Bolivia, Nicaragua and many other imperial aggressions occurring right now.
But well, let's check the evidence of terrorist acts committed by the US-sponsored 'peaceful' opposition in Venezuela:
1. Attempt to burn alive a pro-government citizen:
2. Two men burnt alive:

18. Tarek William Saab (a member of the Venezuelan government) condemning the several terror acts committed by the 'peaceful' opposition:
I think you got it. These US paid 'protesters' are not peaceful. They are violent, incredibly violent. They commit terror acts and not protests. To commit terror acts is, of course, called terrorism! Only a serious crisis of cognitive dissonance can make Western people believe otherwise. And yes, I said "believe" and not "know". Most of the Western human-jellyfishes no longer "know", they only "believe" in postmodern nonsensical misinformation said to be "highly likely" true by the Orwellian propaganda machine we call "mainstream media".
Viva Che! Viva Chávez! Viva Maduro!
