Celebrating socialism in Venezuela, by Takimag.
Those who do not remember history are condemned to vote for Bernie Sanders. Even though nations led by parties with the word “socialist” or “communist” in their names racked up the majority of bodies in the twentieth century’s democidal death toll, the term “socialist” does not induce the same kneejerk terror that the masses have been brainwashed into reacting toward “fascist” or “racist.”
Venezuela—which was robbed blind by its corrupt and recently deceased socialist leader Hugo Chavez—is plunging further into the centrally managed hellhole of hyperinflation, food lines, and street riots. Venezuela’s economic clusterfuck was hastened not only by a collapse in oil prices, but by the government’s aggressive push to nationalize private companies and then hand them over to moronic, untrained peasants.
