NY Times published a video where @Joannahausmann attacks me & others who say no US war on #Venezuela. NYT didn't disclose: her dad is the economist working w/ Guaido to privatize VZ's oil. Last VZ gov't he worked for imposed IMF austerity & massacred the poor when they protested.
Joanna Hausmann claims she's not a military hawk. Meanwhile her neoliberal economist father has called for “D-Day Venezuela”: a foreign military invasion of #Venezuela to overthrow the government. What US regime change does he want to replicate in Venezuela: Iraq? Syria? Libya?
Hausmann dismisses US protests against regime change in #Venezuela, because where are the Venezuelans? Um, they're at the massive anti-war rallies in #Venezuela, where 86% of the population opposes foreign military intervention... not safe in the US like she is.
Hausmann talks about inflation & shortages of food & medicine in #Venezuela, while completely ignoring US-led economic warfare designed to worsen these problems. US sanctions cost Venezuela $30M per day & have blocked billions in shipments of needed food & medicine.
Hausmann claims that sanctions have nothing to do with #Venezuela's economic crisis, a shockingly ignorant claim for the daughter of an economist. Actually, opposition-aligned economist Francisco Rodriguez said US sanctions could cause VZ's economy to shrink by 26% this year.
Hausmann admits US interventions in Latin America have been disasters, but "the mistakes of the '80s" shouldn't stop us from intervening now. Why didn't she mention the 2002 US-backed coup in #Venezuela, or the 2009 US-backed coup in Honduras, now a violent failing state?
Hausmann claims Guaido's only role is to oversee new elections in #Venezuela, when her own father & other Guaido cronies have been traveling the world promising the global economic elite that they'll sell off VZ's oil the morning after overthrowing Maduro. mintpressnews.com/ricardo-hausma…
Hausmann repeatedly claims #Venezuela is a dictatorship without free elections. The truth is, even though the hardline opposition boycotted the 2018 VZ election & tried to block international observers, they came anyway - & declared the election legit. venezuelanalysis.com/analysis/13899
Hausmann telling liberals to support US intervention in #Venezuela for "human rights" is disingenuous BS. US-led economic warfare is making Venezuelans suffer. The Hausmanns just want to return VZ to a time of elite rule when poor, Black & Indigenous Venezuelans had no rights.
