Yesterday I posted how the leftist dreamy-eyed view of Canada is a "mirage."
Meanwhile, a nightmarish socialist experiment has been going south, south of the border.
Venezuela is being devoured by socialism.
One of my friends posted this great comment about the media's disinterest in the disintegration of yet another Workers' Paradise:
This is a story that doesn't get near enough attention: that all the chaos and violence and oppression going on in Venezuela is the result of a full-bore implementation of leftist policies. I notice the media never delves into the root causes of everything down there - they just gloss over it and focus on the current disastrous situation with no explanation for how it got this way.
At least most of the members of The Five aren't glossing over things as they discussed the consequences of socialism.
But it's not just the media that love to fawn over socialism, even while, pretending to have "never heard of Venezuela". Lefty Democrats wax poetic about the joys of so-called social justice democracy.
The problem is: Democrats don't actually believe in Democracy.
Most of us like-minded folks feared that if Hillary were elected, the US would eventually (soon?) follow Venezuela into anarchy.
