Fascist Deputy Tascon loses Mickey Mouse rights

July 12, 2006

yesterday we saw
fascist Deputy Luis Tascon outraged. Why? His Mickey Mouse
rights were revoked by the Homeland Security Department of the US, which
cancelled his visa, reportedly along with a couple of dozen other Deputies. Tascon
has been the only one to complain publicly so far, calling the measure a “provocation”.

Well, the
fascist Deputy will no longer be able to go to Orlando
or shopping in Miami.
Only a month ago he was seen on his way to Seattle to visit that XXth. Century
Capitalist company Microsoft as part of his duties in the committee that makes
decisions on the implementation of open software at all levels in Venezuela. I
guess no more trips to Redmond
either. The oysters and the salmon will be sorely be missed!

The Deputy
was kind enough to provide us with the specific
of the Immigration and Naturalization Law which induced the
measure. It happens to be section 212 (a) (3) (B) which

B) Terrorist activities-

(i) 3/ 4/ 4a/ IN
GENERAL.-Any alien who-

(I) has
engaged in a terrorist activity,

(II) a consular officer, the Attorney
General, or the Secretary of Homeland Security knows, or has reasonable ground
to believe, is engaged in or is likely to engage after entry in any terrorist
activity (as defined in clause (iv));

(III) has, under circumstances indicating
an intention to cause death or serious bodily harm, incited terrorist activity;

(IV) is
a representative (as defined in clause (v)) of–

(aa) a terrorist organization (as defined in clause (vi)); or

(bb) a political, social, or other group
that endorses or espouses terrorist activity;

(V) is a
member of a terrorist organization described in subclause (I) or (II) of clause

(VI) is
a member of a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), unless the
alien can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that the alien did not
know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a
terrorist organization;

(VII) endorses or espouses terrorist
activity or persuades others to endorse or espouse terrorist activity or support
a terrorist organization;

(VIII) has received military-type training
(as defined in section 2339D(c)(1) of title 18, United States Code) from or on
behalf of any organization that, at the time the training was received, was a
terrorist organization (as defined in clause (vi)); or

(IX) is the spouse or child of an alien who
is inadmissible under this subparagraph, if the activity causing the alien to
be found inadmissible occurred within the last 5 years, is inadmissible.

Unfortunately, they did not say which of the eleven sections was applied
to Tascon. In the past he has made some outrageous statements and he was
reportedly Chavez contact with the FARC in 1998-2000, before Chavez broke
visible contact with that group.

I guess
Tascon took offense to his visa being revoked calling the action a provocation, in contrast to many others who
have received the same treatment but stay quiet about it such as Tal Cual
Editor Teodoro Petkoff, Tascon’s Fellow Deputies in the Assembly and the “nuveau”
rich revolutionaries businessman, many of which, have also had their visas

The Florida economy will miss him.
