Venezuelans deplore social injustice. If asked, they'll contest for what's right. They're not about to sacrifice cherished benefits. They shame how political Washington treats Americans.

On January 9, The New York Times headlined "Chavez, or at Least His Sash Is Set for Venezuela Inauguration," saying:

Chavez dominated Venezuela for years, it said. His "health crisis and the decision to proceed on Thursday with a quasi-presidential inauguration that he is unable to attend are producing a stream of bizarre developments and national angst about who is in charge."

Opposition elements ask "who's governing Venezuela?" On January 10, Chavistas rallying in Caracas "plan to don the (presidential) sash." 

Symbolically they'll represent him in absentia. Everyone having sashes was asked to wear them. Doing so supports Chavismo. The Times mocks the idea.

"To no one's surprise," it added, "the Supreme Court, full of Chavez loyalists," postponed his inauguration. An unspecified later date will be named.

"(D)eepening uncertainty could go on for weeks of months." Chavez's condition remains a "stubborn mystery."

The usual sources were quoted. Instead of wishing him speedy recovery, vilifying Chavez is fair game.

Opposition elements cry "crisis." Caracas Libertador Municipality Mayor Jorge Rodriguez Gomez disagrees. He supports Chavismo. "Where is the crisis," he asked? 

On January 10, the Washington Post headlined "In Chavez's absence, US works to open communication with Venezuela," saying:

He's a "58-year-old leftist firebrand." He hasn't been "seen publicly in a month."

"Maduro is considered an ideologue close to Cuba's communist leadership." He's "in lock step with Chavez's longstanding policy of distancing Venezuela from" Washington.

Normalization isn't possible. Bush and Obama officials spurn him. Destabilization is prioritized. Chavez believes America wants him dead. He has just cause to say so. 

Washington tried unsuccessfully for years to oust him. Dark forces never quit. They're hitting him hard while he's struggling to regain health.

American officials are "preparing for a post-Chavez scenario." They want US considerations prioritized. Washington wants full control.
