Nicaragua; another communist paradise

| July 17, 2018

Last week, hundreds of Nicaraguans were trapped inside a church by their government’s sharpshooters after they had taken to the streets to demand the resignation of Daniel Ortega, the Castro puppet who has been president of the Central American country a couple of times over the past few decades.

The standoff was the latest in a series of clashes between government forces and protesters who are demanding the resignation of President Daniel Ortega and a return to democracy in Nicaragua. In recent weeks, protesters erected barricades in cities across the country to keep out government forces, including at the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua (UNAN), which students have occupied over the past two months.

In recent days, gunmen in plainclothes, who appear to be coordinating with police, have been leading a charge to break through the barricades. Convoys of these gunmen, known as turbas, swept into cities south of the capital, such as Jinotepe and Diriamba, earlier this week and clashed with protesters in attacks that left at least 21 people dead.

According to AFP ten more people were killed yesterday, on Monday, as pro-government forces reduced the barricades;

Residents and rights groups had earlier said that troops used mechanical shovels in the early hours of the day to clear barricades in at least three areas.

“They are going to destroy Masaya, it is absolutely surrounded,” Vilma Nunez, president of the Nicaraguan Center for Human Rights (CENIDH), told AFP.

“We are being attacked by the National Police and paramilitaries armed with AK-47s and machine guns in our indigenous neighborhood of Monimbo,” said Alvaro Gomez, a resident. “We are resisting with homemade bombs and stones.”

I guess that most of the pro-communist folks in the United States are incapable of seeing that communism is a suicide pact among populations that elect people like Ortega and Venezuela’s Maduro to political supremacy.

The semi-official website El 19 Digital said that government forces had “liberated” the town of Niquinohomo as part of a “clean-up operation” in several southern towns, including Monimbo.

Monimbo has been a center of resistance against the government of President Daniel Ortega since a wave of protests began April 18 over a since-aborted pension reform plan.

Since then, violence has claimed over 270 lives, most of them civilians, according to CENIDH.

    Communism is the goal of socialism, plain and simple, IDGAF what that moonbat who got himself banned says.

      Lars Taylor is a dipshit with delusions of genius, a tenuous grasp of the written English language, and a comically-overblown idea of his own importance. He’s also a proven liar who blames his self-inflicted problems on those around him, as well as an oathbreaking piece of shit who supports the subversion and destruction of the Constitution of the United States.

      Did I leave anything out?

        Ummmm….
        Uhhhhh…….
        Never mind, it was too much of a visual to pass on here…

  2. JacktheJarhead says:

    Funny, I have heard nothing about this in the MSM! I am SHOKED! SHOCKED I SAY! Communism doesn’t work, period! No matter how many times someone says it has not been done right, it always ends in the same way. Bloodshed.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      They would have worked, if only they had killed all of those “reactionaries,” “counterrevolutionaries,” “antisocial types,” “capitalist traitors,” etc. Then true communism could have been peacefully achieved once all those people were dead!

      Karl Marx is burning in the Special Part of Hell, normally reserved for child molesters and people who talk in the movie theater.

  3. Ex-PH2 says:

    Gee, and we thought it was just Venezuela that had those issues. What’s next? Starvation plans?

  4. Roh-Dog says:

    Marxist theory just hasn’t been properly implemented, DUH! The People can’t accept and submit to the glorious benevolence of the State. Totally Capitalism’s fault.
    This time will be different…just ask DU.
    Speaking of, wtf is Claymore?

  5. Hondo says:

    Remember: “Don’t Fear the Commie”.

    And also remember that 2 plus 2 equals 5 if the Politburo so commands.

    • rgr769 says:

      I think it was Winston Smith in “1984” who learned how that totalitarian (aka socialist) new math works.

      • The Other Whitey says:

        Decent people read “1984” and find a vivid warning of what could all too easily come to pass if leftists get their way. People like a certain banned poodle-molesting commie read it and become aroused at the thought of joining the Ministry of Love.

      • Hondo says:

        So did over 140M others. In the USSR and PRC alone.

        Of course, you’ll have to contact Miss Cleo to talk to them. They’re “no longer with us” due to deliberate actions taken by their Communist governments.

    HaHa…Bernies old friend.

    I’ll just leave this here….

  8. SFC D says:

    Socialism works. They’re just not doing it right. Isn’t that the mantra?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      The way to do it right is to follow Joe Stalin’s methods.

      Now the media are slamming dTrump for meeting with Vlad Putin, when they’ve spent so much effort inventing collusion between the two of them.

      They have no brains, and therefor get no headaches. They just give all the headaches to us.

      • The Other Whitey says:

        Remember when Obama actually promised to collude with Putin when he thought the mike was off?

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          …and the grin on Vlad’s face because he knew he had encountered the World’s Supreme Moron – priceless!

    Two things that have never worked, my Ex-wife and communism!

  10. Club Manager, USA ret. says:

    WAR STORY ALERT: The CIA under the guise of AR SOUTHCOM hosted an annual conference at the Albrook AS Club of all air forces in CA and SA. I was the club manager and my wife and I dined with a major and lieutenant from Nicaragua at the 84′ conference. The major was an okay guy but the Lt was a royal pain in the ass Communist who the major finally told to put a lid on his rhetoric. Pricks like him are probably what the people are now facing

    In New York, they win the Democratic primary for the House of Representatives.

    • Mason says:

      She’s better than the polygamist Somali married to her brother that MN Democrats are putting up for a house seat.

  12. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    The liberals mus love whats going on over there. Where are the in thing Ortega tee shirts?? Remember the Che and other dictator tees.

  13. Ex-PH2 says:

    Some day, Maduro will choke to death on his own tongue. Ditto these slimeballs. One dictator is no different from another. So what’s next? Mass shootings in both those countries? Neither produces anything worth bothering with. You’d think they’d snap out of it after a while, but Da Stoopid rules.

    Xi Jinping has President for Life in China. I guess they like his approach to a market economy. Vlad is exporting gas and oil to Europe because Angela Merkel’s wind farm notions are failing badly and people have frozen to death in the UK and Europe. (Thanks, you silly old cow!) I think Macron (France) and Trudeau (Canada) have to be twins grown in the same petri dish and separated at the blastula stage. They even look alike, and they are both idiots.

    Interesting times, indeed.

    I’m going to go turn the sprinkler on so that my lawn will stay green.
