Clinton, Act to Avoid a Massacre in Honduras

“I'm a teacher, not a member of an elite class. We are not creating violence, there are no 'death squads,' and you should perhaps read a Spanish language news source so you don't sound so much like a CNN-bot.”

“Honduras

Honduras had death squads active through the 1980s, the most notorious of which was Battalion 3-16. Hundreds of people, teachers, politicians, and union bosses were assassinated by government-backed forces. Battalion 316 received substantial support and training from the United States Central
This is who you're supporting:

Intelligence Agency.[51] At least 19 members were School of the Americas graduates.[52][53] Seven members, including Billy Joya, later played important roles in the administration of President Manuel Zelaya as of mid-2006.[54] Following the 2009 coup d'état, former Battalion 3-16 member Nelson Willy Mejía Mejía became Director-General of Immigration[55][56] and Billy Joya was de facto President Roberto Micheletti's security advisor.[57] Another former Battalion 3-16 member, Napoleón Nassar Herrera,[54][58], was high Commissioner of Police for the north-west region under Zelaya and under Micheletti, and also became a Secretary of Security spokesperson "for dialogue" under Micheletti.[59][60] Zelaya claimed that Joya had reactivated the death squad.[57]”

Clinton, Act to Avoid a Massacre in Honduras

“I live here in Tegucigalpa and I doubt this author has ever visited the country. The force used by police is a result of action by the rioters, who have looted, burned, spray-painted, and terrorized this city. The American media is only reporting on the 'innocent' demonstrators--who are in fact people that don't hold jobs or have been purchased by one of the 77 bank accounts under Mel Zelaya's name. Can you not see, readers, that Zelaya is a cartoon-character of a dictator? Smiling, acting, trying to stay in power to control, and sneaking into his own country and then calling on his uneducated supporters to create violence? How is this not apparent to the world out there? Wake up. This is a dangerous man and he is creating a hostile situation, not the other way around.”

“Why don't they have jobs? Could it be they're ruled by oligarchical tyrants such as you who greedily horde the country's wealth while cowardly hiding behind the military, police, a corrupt Supreme Court and death squads? You want to see who's responsible for violence? Take a look in the mirror.”
