Trotskyite groups are notorious throughout the world for their extreme sectarian tendencies. The organizations rarely last long, frequently splintering into tiny groupuscules over political disagreements. Unsurprisingly, then, the so-called “left” opposition in Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Cuba — which is celebrated by Trotskyite groups like the ISO — is in fact infinitesimal and insignificant. Nils McCune, a socialist and environmental activist who has lived in Nicaragua for years, explained in an interview on our podcast Moderate Rebels that one of these parties, the Movement for the Renovation of Sandinismo (MRS) is a tiny group that is irrelevant in the country. Unable to mobilize popular support, this “left” opposition can only lobby the US government for regime change.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—This all comes out as we learn that Facebook is attaching warning labels to posts from outlets sponsored by governments which have not been absorbed into the US-centralized empire like RT and CGTN, but attaching no such label to outlets funded by imperial governments like BBC and Radio Free Europe. There is not any discernible difference in the degree of bias shown in state media from unabsorbed nations like Russia and China than there is in state media from the US and UK (or oligarchic media from the US and UK for that matter), but Facebook causes its 2.6 billion active users to look at one with suspicion but not the other.

Concerning demonstrations in some countries, Pompeo said those riots are not an expression of “people’s democratic will.” Pompeo said these statements today during a speech at the University of Louisville. He is delivering these statements as people are rebelling against neoliberal economic policies in Chile and Colombia, as well as protests that erupted in Ecuador last October; all of these countries are U.S. allies and neo liberal projects.

RT.COM—Ben Norton: “The corporate media has been spreading a lot of lies and distortions to justify the right-wing US-backed coup in Bolivia. The top court ruled Evo was allowed to run again for president. He won re-election fairly. The opposition is overthrowing democracy.”
