More proof of the use of the Tascon Fascist list right at the top

November 22, 2005

I still
remember when I first started talking about the Tascon list and how it was
being used to violate the most basic rights of Venezuelans, that pro-Chavez
readers of this blog began questioning whether this was true or not, while people
I knew well were being denied jobs, their ability to deal with the Government
or even basic services like getting a passport or an ID number for the basic
fact that they signed the petition to recall President Hugo Chavez, a right in
the Venezuelan Constitution, put in by Chavez himslef. In time, the evidence
mounted, case after case of the use of list became public, of how it was being
used throughout the Government to deny the rights of people.

Then the ultimate
proof came out: First it
was the memo in which Chavez
asked the President of the Electoral Board to
hand over the petition database directly to Tascon, for which the Presidency
provided Xerox machines and personnel to copy the thousands of pages containing
the names of those that signed. Then, in his verbosity, the chief blabbermouth
of Venezuela told Deputy Tascon in his Sunday radio program that it was time to
put away or “bury” the list
. Those same readers never said anything and
most of them have continued to support this Government despite this clear
evidence of fascism, absence of the rule of law and abuse of the rights of people
that went right to the top.

Today, Tal
Cual revealed a conversation
between Rocio San Miguel, the former legal council to the National Council for
Borders and her former boss Feijoo Colomine, the Executive Secretary of that
Council. The Council is directly dependent from the Vice Presidency of the
Republic. San Miguel was not only fired from her job at the council, but also
from her teaching job at the School
of Air Wars for signing
the petition to call for a referendum to recall Higo Chavez. Moreover, her
husband, an Air Force Colonel, has had no assignment and has been at home ever
since his wife made her accusations public.

San Miguel
tried to go through the Courts but because the judicial system is controlled by
the Government, her case has gone nowhere. She is now planning to go to the Interamerican
System for the Protection of Human Rights. Today, San Miguel revealed the same taped conversation she had try
to use in her case
in which the Secretary General of the council,
recriminates her for signing the petition and tells her directly that the
decision to get rid of the people was made by Vice-President Jose Vicente
Rangel directly. In any country where decency prevails the Vice-President would
resign in the face of such an accusation of repression, abuse of power, human
rights violation and plain fascist behavior. In a country with the rule of law,
he would be indicted. In the Venezuela
of the revolution, this will not even be considered by these heartless crooks
without scruples. For those that do not speak Spanish, here are some excerpts
from the conversation between San Miguel (SM) and her boss Feijoo (F):

SM: This makes me very sad. In some
fashion Thais and I will move forward, but I don’t understand why they meddle
with Magally and with Guerra (Others fired), for only signing…how can you collaborate
with this?

F: Well, I am not going to argue,
because…the alternative is that I resign, see? And I am not going to do that

SM: But are you conscious that an
abuse is being committed??? Your Government has claimed thousands of times
about any citizen having the rights to exercise what they put in the
Constitution. And why that retaliation? I understand if you are a Minister, you
are fired, but we have technical jobs, I don’t go around making political statement
s of any sort.

F: There are decisions that are being
made, they make them, and I did not like it…I do not agree…But the Government
has made a decision

SM: To kick out all its employees that

F: Well, at least Jose Vicente (the
VP) made the decision in our case …The VP signed it.

There you
have it, evidence of fascist behavior right at the top once again. Anyone care
to defend it? How much are you willing to support and collaborate with this
type of behavior?

That is
why this post is going in the category: Tascon Fascist list. And it is a long list
of fascism and abuses by this silly “revolution”!
