The late, great humorist George Carlin once opined: “Bipartisan usually means that a larger-than-usual deception is being carried out.”
With that being said, the incredible bipartisan support of the anti-government uproar in Venezuelan, which is being hailed as a victory for human rights and democracy by the entire political establishment and corporate media, has to raise some eyebrows.
To @jguaido, the National Assembly and all the freedom-loving people of Venezuela who are taking to the streets today in #operacionlibertad—Estamos con ustedes! We are with you! America will stand with you until freedom & democracy are restored. Vayan con dios! #FreeVenezuela

This is bad reporting. It's not a coup. Maduro is a dictator and Guiado is the legal president of Venezuela. https://t.co/dm4Kl3H3Zv

The fake news echoed the official opinion from the top, with only one key exception. Tucker Carlson of Fox News allowed dissident journalist Anya Parapil of the Grayzone Project to dispel what she feels is biased coverage of the developments.
Parapil recently spent time in Venezuela and saw no public support for the US-backed neoliberal Venezuelan ‘President’ Juan Guaido.

Because Parapil once worked for ‘Russia Today,’ no doubt Carlson will be called a Rooskie agent for allowing her point of view on the airwaves.
With such an abysmal record of foreign intervention, U.S. policymakers would be wise to be quiet and let the people of Venezuela make their own determinations about who should lead their nation moving forward.
