The easy answer, of course, is they’re on the side of the socialist dictatorship. These morons parade around America every week with some delusional romantic nostalgia about recreating the 1960s, when in reality they haven’t got a clue what a real struggle is all about.
When you do see people actually fighting for their lives, their silence speaks volumes.
Gunmen killed two more people during political unrest in Venezuela on Monday, bringing the total number of deaths to 12 this month, as anti-government protests entered a fourth week with mass “sit-ins” to press for early elections.
A 42-year-old man who worked for local government in the Andean state of Merida died from a gunshot in the neck at a rally in favor of President Nicolas Maduro’s government, the state ombudsman and prosecutor’s office said.
Another 54-year-old man was shot dead in the chest during a protest in the western agricultural state of Barinas, the state prosecutor’s office added without specifying the circumstances.
Seven others were injured in both places.
The latest deaths come amid a month of protests that have sparked politically-motivated shootings and clashes between security forces armed with rubber bullets and tear gas and protesters wielding rocks and Molotov cocktails.
Eleven people have also died during night-time looting.
Other than leftwing violence seeking to shut down opposing voices (see Cal-Berkeley), we haven’t see our government cracking down on the alleged “resistance” here; and let’s face it, these people couldn’t resist a four-year-old tossing snowballs at them. Yet the media portrays them as some heroic freedom fighters in the face of Trump, while pretty much ignoring government-sponsored murder of the opposition in Venezuela.
The ruling Socialist Party accuses foes of seeking a violent coup with U.S. connivance, while the opposition says he is a dictator repressing peaceful protest.
The opposition’s main demands are for elections, the release of jailed activists and autonomy for the opposition-led congress. But protests are also fueled by the crippling economic crisis in the oil-rich nation of 30 million people.
“I have an empty stomach because I can’t find food,” said Jeannette Canozo, a 66-year-old homemaker, who said police used rubber bullets against protesters blocking a Caracas avenue with trash and bathtubs in the early morning.
What was not long ago the wealthiest country in Latin America, sitting on some of the world’s largest oil resevres, is now in economic freefall, ranking dead last in Latin America. Bottom line is socialism fails everywhere, except in the eyes of the America left and media.
When Maduro’s dictatorship falls, then the media might notice, but they’ll blame Trump anyway.
