In his tweet (better catch it now before he takes it down), U.S. Senator (and murderous War Criminal) Marco Rubio gloats about the power outage in Venezuela:
“Today another transformer explosion at the German Dam in Bolivar State caused another massive blackout. The result? Critically ill patients have died, the Caracas metro remains out of service & few if any flights have arrived at or departed from Caracas in over 20 hours.”
Putting aside the fact that Rubio himself has been leading the charge to oust Maduro; and that this self-proclaimed “Follower of Christ” is, with all certainty, himself responsible for concocting most of these crimes and dirty tricks against the Venezuelan people; what struck people most about Rubio’s tweet is its sheer ignorance.
For example, there is no such thing as a German Dam in Venezuela, as a schoolchild could have discovered, using basic internet resources. Knowledgeable people on Twitter rushed to correct Rubio. As the Russian press reported, a Spanish-language journalist named German Dam (yes, that’s his actual name) had reported on the blackout. Just guessing here, but it seems like Rubio, while pleasuring himself on Venezuelan misfortunes, must have read a google-translated version from Spanish to English, in which the name got garbled into an adjective-noun combination. Wonder what that says about Rubio’s supposed bi-lingual capabilities? (Recall that Rubio strives to gain Hispanic brownie points from the Cuban diaspora, as a supposed refuge, even though his family left Cuba before Castro took over the government.)
The journalist Dam himself corrected Rubio on his Twitter feed: “My name is German Dam, I am one of the journalists who published this information.”
This, once again, speaks to the strange combination of extreme criminality and extreme ignorance, as exhibited by the American political elite. Mafioso Rubio is such an ignorant fool, he makes Tony Soprano look like Kierkegaard. One would hope that Rubio’s constituents would recoil in revulsion and vote him out of office at the next opportunity; but, alas, the American Senate is set up in such a way that it is highly unlikely, if not completely impossible, to remove a person from that pig’s trough, once they have settled in.
