During the announcement of the creation of the new “Vice-ministry for the Supreme Social Happiness of the Venezuelan People,” President Maduro again mentioned “the trilogy of evil,” conformed by opposition leaders María Corina Machado, Henrique Capriles Radonski, and Leopoldo López.
Maduro called them “fascist parasites and enemies of the Fatherland,” and argued that they are behind the economic war he claims is being waged against the country.
“I call on the People to recognize these enemies of the People and the Fatherland, enemies of the future, who do not want to show their faces. They are untouchable princes and princesses. There is no one in the media that dares to criticize them. The parasite of Miranda [Capriles] abandoned his post as Governor, and there are constitutional mechanisms to strip him of the post …ah but he is a bourgeois prince. They are the ones sabotaging ¡People recognize them! They are the trilogy of evil, they have Washington’s blessing,” explained Maduro.
He also made a warning against the “trilogy of evil”: “we will have no remorse, we will not be moved by tears [lloriqueo que valga], you have to pay for what you have done to the People. (…) We are preparing an effective offensive. We are going to take them down from their posts through constitutional means.”
