    Journalist Max Blumenthal was arrested on October 25 and charged with “assault” in a political case that he says is “completely false” and “manufactured” by Venezuela opposition supporters.

    From April to May, supporters of Juan Guaido’s attempted coup in Venezuela surrounded the Venezuela embassy in Washington, D.C. They engaged in verbal and physical assaults that authorities largely permitted.

    Blumenthal, the editor of The Grayzone, reported on antiwar and international solidarity activists, who attempted to protect the embassy from the right-wing opposition.

    According to Grayzone reporter Ben Norton, “A team of D.C. police officers appeared at Blumenthal’s door at just after 9 AM, demanding entry and threatening to break his door down. A number of officers had taken positions on the side of his home as though they were prepared for a SWAT-style raid.”

    Looks like the American Gestapo bagged another one! Who’s next?

    All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

    “Land of the free.” It takes a SWAT team to arrest a journalist.

      It takes a phone call to arrest a journalist. The SWAT team on bogus case is pure intimidation and psychological warfare.

      Aloha!
