Protests in Bolivia over an election which returned President Evo Morales for a 4th term — but which were found to be unsound by the Organization of American States

I joined BBC Ulster’s William Crawley on Wednesday for discussion of developments in Bolivia, where President Evo Morales has resigned and left for Mexico, and how the narrow “anti-imperialist” rhetoric of some commentators stands in the way of understanding the situation.

The other participant is socialist Phil Kelly who unwittingly proves the point by opening, “The US represents the greatest threat to humanity on the face of the planet” — and then failing to answer basic questions about Bolivia and other countries such as Syria and China.

The “blame US first” line on every occasion erases local situations and people.
