“A prince of darkness has returned to hell.”

Posted by Charles II on June 25, 2015

Honduran oligarch Miguel Facussé was widely reported to be a narcotrafficker and mass murderer in Honduras. From DemocracyNow:

Diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks showed the United States knew of Facussé’s role in cocaine trafficking but continued funding Honduras’ military and police, who reportedly worked closely with Facussé’s guards. Facussé backed the 2009 coup that ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya;

In response to Facussé’s death, Chuck Kaufman of the Alliance for Global Justice told Colorado radio station KGNU, “A prince of darkness has returned to hell.”

By the way, this is Colorado’s KGNU, not Missouri’s WGNU, a radio station that inexplicably broadcast Earl Holt III while proclaiming:

We want to draw citizen elements together in a spirit of harmony and brotherhood; leaving behind confusing, divisive or rudely confrontational attitudes and language.

It must be Prince of Darkness Day or something.

  1. Thanks for this, Charles. It’s a sign of how bent out of shape the Anglo-American fear of COMMMMIEEEES!!!! has been that the US helped the murderous oligarchs and did its best to topple Chavez in Venezuela. (And the US did inherit its shockingly reactionary policies from the UK, and held to them even as the Brits themselves got less reactionary and dumped their empire.)

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
