Free Speech Campaigners Slam Labour’s Venezuela Hypocrisy

The likes of Diane Abbott, Owen Jones, Grahame Morris et al are the first to speak up about human rights abuses committed by allies of western governments. Freedom of speech campaign group Index on Censorship has condemned those same Labour loonies for their double standards of refusing to condemn the state sponsored violence in socialist Venezuela:

“The point of universal rights is that they are universal. It’s not a credible position to condemn the violence and rights violations of regimes you dislike and then to stay silent on the same actions carried out by people whose politics you support.”

For shame…

    Hypocrisy from the left? So what’s new. The central defining characteristic of a lefty is stinking rank hypocrisy. Others include, living in a fantasy world, mass delusions, lack of mathematical skills, inability to understand money and a complete inability to understand when a system has been tried hundreds of times and failed every single time, that it does not work.

      Nothing new about hypocrisy from the Left, was it Tony Benn who signed the Book of Condolences when Stalin died? Lots of senior Labour and trade union people visited the USSR in those days and came back with stories of it being a Workers’ Paradise with shops full of goods, fantastic hospitals …… Of course they visited the places only available to the :Politburo and their cronies.

          There are two types of socialist:-
          1. Those brought up in poverty such as E Bevin who just want a decent days wage for decent days work , who were physically and mentally resilient and live their lives without rancour and resentment.
          2. Middle class socialist whose belief in social justice is just a front for rancour and resentment because of some inferiority complex. Perhaps they were not loved by their parents or were spoilt rotten, or less attractive than their peers or not physically and tough as their peers or not as bright as their peers.

      There are apparently no depths too deep that this government will not plumb in their desire to destroy the lives and livelihoods of British people, all done without shame as we can see by David Cameron lecturing Church leaders on morality.

      Socialism is our future says:

      This is because there are calls for ATOS to pay for all the tribunals re the wrong decisions they make

      So private companies paid £half a billion to make the blind work

      – then the job centre sanction the blind for missing their appointment because they could not read the letter sent to them (not in brail)

      — then the blind forced to pay £250 to appeal 2 wrong decisions

      — but the other option has been put forward today

      And if the blind dare to try to appeal the injustice of Job Centres and ATOS – Cameron set to employ 10,000 magistrates and enforce instant INJUSTICE Liberal, Labour and Tory MP style

      There appears to be plenty taxpayers money available to enforce INJUSTICE – we cannot pay benefits – but today a Tory Think tank calls for 10,000 new “magistrates” to be employed to enforce “instant injustice”

      Of course they won’t just be in police offices enforcing “on the spot justice” –

      They will be in ATOS offices, they will be in Job Centres, they will be in Doctors offices
