On Sunday, November 24, Hondurans voted. Eight candidates contested for president. Only two mattered.
LIBRE party (Liberty and Refoundation) candidate Xiomara Castro challenged ruling National party’s Juan Orlando Hernandez. A previous article explained.
It said business as usual prevailed. Fraud, intimidation and vote buying were rampant. So were political assassinations. Democracy was nowhere in sight.
Honduras has none. Fascist extremism is official policy. A cauldron of violence and repression persist. Washington offers full support. It does so disgracefully.
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psake congratulated Honduras for a “peaceful” election. She lied saying so. She did again calling it “generally transparent.”
She urged Hondurans “to resolved election disputes peacefully through established legal processes.” Honduran rule of law principles don’t exist.
Fascist police states don’t operate this way. They do what they please. They do it unaccountably. They steal elections with impunity.
Sunday was no exception. Election rigging substituted for freedom, openness and fairness. They were nowhere in sight.
