Independent journalist and Latino Rebels contributor Roberto Lovato made a Wednesday morning Democracy Now! appearance to discuss the politics behind Venezuela and Elliott Abrams.

“When I see Elliott Abrams on, in front of Congress, it stirs my subconscious, and I think it stirs the subconscious of the entire country, that wants to forget, but won’t and shouldn’t forget, what happened in Central America in the 1980s,” Lovato said. “So, many of the actors, many of the tactics and strategies, many of the political alliances we’re seeing around Venezuela have already—you know, that’s why you bring in Elliott Abrams, a cold warrior, a dirty warrior.”
