The unrest in Honduras so perfectly fits the pattern of leftist insurrection that even those with little or no knowledge of such plots should be able to recognize it for what it is.
The plot goes something like this:
-A corrupt leader who is somewhat popular becomes power hungry.
-The U.S. and international community see the leader as a useful tool for their own mischief and mayhem.
-Pro-liberty forces within the country oust the corrupt yet well-connected leader.
-The global news outlets report sensationalized (and often fabricated) stories of the horrors the interim government is committing.
-There is an outpouring of support for the deposed corrupt leader by neighboring leftist/socialist/communist national governments and usually the U.S. government as well.
-Leftist/socialist/communist provocateurs are sent in to recruit willing dupes, incite rebellion, and goad police into harsh responses.
-The U.S. and international community bring sanctions to bear on the interim government.
-(New twist for the internet age) Blogs and internet posts by Hondurans revealing the true sentiments of the people are suppressed, with all the blame being placed on the interim government. Internet sources in the U.S. supporting the deposed corrupt leader are given great credibility and support by tax-free foundations and our own government.
-Demands are made to reinstate the former corrupt leader.
-The global news outlets report about supposed huge support (that really doesn’t exist) for the former corrupt leader.
-More leftist/socialist/communist provocateurs and outsiders are brought in to deceive the people into ever more violent rebellion.
-The willing dupes descend into ever more violent protests.
-The interim government, in attempts to restore order, takes harsh measures to quell the leftist incited violent rebellion.
-The U.S. and the international community condemn the interim government.
-The U.N. steps in to facilitate the reinstatement of the corrupt former leader.
-The global news outlets report how wonderful everything is now that order is restored.
It’s a pattern that has been repeated time after time with the assistance in many cases of our own CIA and other covert agencies. It’s been called regime change by our Presidents and nation building by others. The reality is that it is deception.
All this could have been averted by our government simply recognizing the interim government in their legal removal of a corrupt and power hungry leftist.
You can bet that if Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, Lula De Silva, and the OAS are supporting Zelaya, there’s something rotten in Honduras.
Good luck to those supporting liberty and the rule of law in Honduras. They’ll need it with the U.S. and the world against them.
