Venezuelan dictator Maduro claims to have foiled “fascist” assassination plot

Oh, the perils of being a Latrine American dictator…

…and the blessings of having Cuban agents to keep you safe and in power.

And, oh, the wonders of having someone to blame for everything.

From Deutsche Welle:

Venezuela thwarted a US-linked plan to assassinate President Nicolas Maduro and seize power from his socialist government, Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez alleged on Wednesday.

Active and retired military officers were involved in the plan, which was set to take place on Sunday or Monday, he said, accusing Chile and Colombia of also being involved in the alleged coup attempt.

Rodriguez added that opposition leader Juan Guaido was planning “a bloodbath.”

Guaido, who has the support of the United States and about 50 other countries to replace Maduro, dismissed the attempted coup claims as fiction, saying the media had “lost count” of how many times the government had alleged this.

In a nationally televised address, President Maduro accused the US of being responsible and that Colombian President Ivan Duque was also involved as his “complicity” was “evident.”

The Venezuelan leader said he would be unforgiving of any attempts at a coup d’etat.

“We would be ruthless in a revolutionary counter-offensive against a attempted fascist coup — ruthless!” Maduro said. “That’s not called politics,” he added. “That’s called fascism.”
