White House Tries to Link US Protests to Venezuelan Government: Allegations appear to hinge on Max Blumenthal's t-shirt

The best part of a major, nationwide protest movement is having someone to blame. This weekend, the new narrative embraced by the White House would pin large US protests against police brutality on Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro.

The Trump Administration has had a problem with Maduro for a long time, and in just the past few months had also accused him of being involved in the drug trade, justifying a bounty on his head that culminated in a failed invasion by a private US company.

The White House is refusing to offer any proof on this, saying it was “non-open source.” Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) cited certain news reports from Latin America. The whole thing, incredibly, all falls back on Max Blumenthal’s T-shirt.

Blumenthal, from TheGrayZone.com, was shown in a DC protest as wearing a T-shirt with “Hugo Chavez eyes” on it. This was taken as a sign of Venezuelan links to the protests, and doubled down on with Blumenthal having interviewed Maduro, and been photographed shaking his hand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, WHO in the White House is off their meds, in order to come up with such an unhinged linkage?!?

Apparently in the operative collective-think of the White House, reasonable people living in our inner cities, who are consistently exposed to a steady diet of police violence, have absolutely no reason to be upset when that violence resulted in the death of an unarmed man.

Was Floyd an angel?!? The short answer is, absolutely not; but in light of the fact that he was already subdued and in custody, why did this cop believe he had the right to asphyxiate him with the hold he used?!?

I cannot believe for one second that he didn't know what he was doing, and what the ultimate outcome would have been.

There is a great deal we urgently need to fix in our own back yard as Americans, before we lecture other countries about their perceived "wrong-doings."
