Labour MP Uses McAlpine to Gag Venezuela Critics

Loony pro-Chavez Labour MP Grahame Morris (above centre) is getting very tetchy this afternoon, threatening to sue anyone criticising him for his stance on the country and comparing himself to Lord McAlpine:

Go back to March last year, before Maduro ordered the arrest of the opposition leader and Venezuela descended into state sponsored violence, and Morris was full of praise for the tyrant responsible:

Still the likes of Morris, Owen Jones and Diane Abbott refuse to condemn the violence…

      Socialists don’t condemn the violence, because they support it.

      Let’s not be naive. Socialists believe in silencing and killing their opponents. Just like they like to rig elections. They even do that here. The constituency boundaries have been gerrymandered so that Labour have an inbuilt advantage. they also like postal voting for the incumbent’s adbvantage it gives them in their rotten boroughs.

      If they had the chance they would also shut us all up at the point of a gun.

        The Critics says:

        They cannot condemn Maduro. If they did, they would have to admit to a failing of socialism,which they are genetically unable to do. By their own blinkered thought process, they believe the only alternative to their beliefs is right wing nastiness. The other thing which fuels them is the need for a hate figure who represents right wing nastiness; Maduro is actually doing many of the things they attribute to right wing tyrants.

        They are not programmed to deal with this and have no idea what to do. Who can they hate/blame on the right? They will go into default response mode.

        1.Lash out at perceived right wing nasties to deflect attention from their problem.
        2.Say nothing

        They are utterly predictable and continue to prove it every day.

    It is only the right-wing capitalist media and its lackeys that spread lies about Venezuela, making up stories of demonstrations against the people’s government.

    The Venezuelan President correctly bans such tools of Yanqui oppression from libelling the correct socialist news of the people’s victories.

    It demoralises the working class to hear of such slander against socialism, which only fails because people want things they aren’t entitled to have.

        I have visited Seaton Holme in Easington. It is possibly the oldest Grade I domestic residence in England.

        There is not much to speak for elsewhere in Easington and that goes for their MP too.

        My remark was made as an ironic reference to the complete lack of equivalence in his tweet. The man either has not got a brain worth pickling or he thinks everyone else’s brain is actually pickled.

        If it upsets him, then tough!

        He ought to carry a feeling of responsibility for the deaths and suffering in Venezuela, for the rest of his worthless, miserable life. Bastard.

          He is just another socialist sociopath.

          It is really very simple: If you support a regime in a foreign country you of course take a risk – even if it is the US for example.

          Now, if that regime does something like shooting a bunch of unarmed students dead using undercover officers, then you have a choice:

          i) Condemn, and prove conclusively that you do not support such actions. So you supported in the past, but not what is going on now. Job done.

          or:

          ii) You do not condemn.

          Recall Archbishop Tutu:

          ‘If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.’

          Now Morris is far from neutral in this situation. An awful lot can be extrapolated from that, and extrapolated accurately.

          Get your irony etc. which is cool, just had a sense of humour bypass because I am seeing a lot less that can be written off and ridiculed in Labour now :-)

      In that case why is it middle-class students that are protesting and not the poor? Because I was somewhat under the impression that too much socialism in Venezuela had served the poor quite well up to a point but has thoroughly fucked the middle-class future doctors, lawyers, engineers, architects and others right in the ass.

    On the “progressive” blog site Left Foo Forward, the Labour MP Grahame Morris (chair of the Labour Friends of Venezuela and my MP) wrote of Chavez as a true democrat whose economic policies had transformed the country and “dramatically” improved “the lives of the overwhelming majority”.
