Hey, violent opposition: Check out your victims

Diosdado Cabello just confirmed the death of a member of the 23 de Enero colectivo (armed paramilitary groups), allegedly shot in the head in the vicinity of the student protests in Caracas.

“Unfortunately, a soldier of the bolivarian revolution has been murdered in Plaza Candelaria,” said Diosado minutes ago. “Facism was there, there in front of the Prosecutor General´s building (Fiscalía). He was savagely murdered by facism. This is painful for us […] This was a provocation. ¿How much longer are we going to let our people be killed?” [for the original statement in spanish, click here]

Provocation, Diosdado?

Here is provocation in its all its motorcycle-riding, assault-rifle-wielding splendor:
