Excellent point by Monica Showalter at American Thinker: We have an overabundance of leftists in politics and the media who are more than happy to share their thoughts, opinions and organic pasta recipes with us on both mass and social media. Some seem never to have had an unexpressed thought. And yet, they’re being strangely silent about all those Venezuelans who are sick of going without food, medicine, toilet paper or freedom, and who are risking their lives to stand up against their socialist government.
Even Democrats who have Congressional committee posts related to foreign affairs are tweeting about the Middle East, their canceled European junket and, of course, “Russia! Russia! Russia!” But nary a word about the biggest story of the day: the Venezuelan people’s rejection of socialism.
I know, I know: they don’t want to bring “socialism” socialism to America. They want to bring a different, special kind of socialism, the kind that’s as rare as a unicorn with a horn made of Unobtanium: socialism that actually works and leaves everyone happier, healthier and better off!
Yeah, that’s the kind that Hugo Chavez promised to bring to Venezuela, too.
Well, there was one Democrat in Congress who tweeted support for President Maduro, even if it put her on the same side as Vladimir Putin and the oppressive Venezuelan socialism she’s denied supporting. Bet you can’t guess who that was.
