Starving Venezuelans' Warnings To The US: "Socialism Is A Big Lie!"

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,
Lured in by the lies socialists tell about how great it would be to have government control every aspect of everyone’s lives, Venezuelans are now disgusted with how much they have suffered.
Some are even warning the United States about their horrific daily lives in socialist Venezuela.

Venezuela is a perfect example of a democrats dream “democratic socialism.” However,people are starving and digging through trash cans in order to find the least rotten foodto eat.
“You do not ever want anything close to socialism,” one Venezuelanprotestor told Campus Reform, a college news website.​
During a recent rally at Washington, several other Venezuelan victims of socialism also warned against the dangers of bringing the disastrous form of totalitarianism socialism onto American soil.
The Epoch Times reported that another Venezuelan said:
“People are eating from trash cans in the streets, so how has socialism helped?” another protestor said.
Socialism is a big lie to people who are disadvantaged. It actually makes them worse off.”
But politicians bank on being able to convince people to give them more power under the guise of taking care of them, and historically, people continue to fall for the lie and become starving slaves to the government.
Venezuela has been spiraling into deeper political chaos, which exacerbated by its ruined economy, massive inflation, starvation, and the inability of the citizens to fight back at all.
“No Venezuelan can like socialism, because we’ve seen it put in place very well,” a protestor said, according to Campus Reform.
“It is not a game. It is not a game.It is not the route to go … don’t fall for it,” another protestor, who still has family in Venezuela, told the news website.
“We always talk about the Nazis … but nobody ever talks about the socialists or communism. It has killed more people than Nazis did,” he continued.​



Regardless of the warnings, or the actual historical facts, many Americans are still all too convinced that by becoming a slave to the government, their lives will be improved. The problem with socialists is not that they want to be enslaved and owned by the government, which they do. The problem is that they want the rest of us to be enslaved right along with them.

Let's stop this laughable horseshit about the "starving" Venezuelans.

Particularly when the "starving" people are pictured shopping at WalMart.

FFS, look at the climate - - get a few packets of seeds and within a few months you'll have more than enough food in your backyard.

You're not starving until you have to resort to cannibalism.

That might work if you got time to guard those seedlings from theft 24-7. --and superior numbers to avoid being over run by mobs for them. I figure they would rather be out scavenging than watching growing seedlings that will inevitably be stolen from them.

How many WalMart shoppers do you suppose could identify a potato plant?

Laughable horseshit???
Look at the shelves in that Walmart. Empty. And those few packets of seeds, if you can get them, take months to grow and produce vegetables. And just vegetables, not beef or pork. And you measure starvation by the number of cannibals in society? I don’t want to live in your socialist neighborhood, Mr. Rogers. I don’t know if you are a socialist, but all socialists are deluded nut jobs.

Have you not read the accounts of Venezuelan farmers inundated with hordes of city folk descending on their fields and pastures looting crops and slaughtering animals right in the fields and carrying off the parts?

You also have understand human nature, desperate and jealous neighbors may not know what you are growing but destroy whatever you have because if they have nothing everyone else better have nothing.

And they'll know who to rob because it will be those guys who are not emaciated skeletons with a dead look in their eyes.

... And be sure to wear over sized pants so it looks like you lost a lot of weight.

That's correct - - laughable horseshit is precisely the term to describe these stories about "starving Venezuelans".

Snowflakes around the world are aghast that one section of shelving is mostly empty in that WalMart picture. Let's ignore the fact that the section behind it is full of stock. As is the aisle at the end of the shelves.

Educate yourself my friend, and start with the Holodomor. Take a good look at pictures of the Ukrainians who were actually starving to death and let me know how they compare to that Venezuelan WalMart shopper.

Meanwhile, A51, I’m seeing interviews of Venezuelan citizens who’ve made it into the US and have experienced the crisis back home or have relatives living through it telling us that Venezuela is a hell hole right now. They tell us that people are eating out of garbage cans and cooking dogs, cats, pigeons and zoo animals to survive. But I guess we should ignore those first and second hand accounts because leftists in universities and media tell us to? And the holodomor was a completely different animal. A forced starvation is different than a socio-economic crisis where food and other commodities are in short supply. Hey, let’s have some of that here.

Thank you for reiterating what I've been explaining to you. A few empty shelves in WalMart doesn't quite equate to the catastrophic Holodomor.

That was a legit starvation and claimed MILLIONS of victims. How many people have died from starvation in Venezuela? Dozens? Hundreds?

That’s hardly the point. Their lives are a mess from socialist policies and a socialist government. Everything they need is either exorbitantly expensive or nonexistent to purchase, even if they had enough cash. But, according to your logic, if they aren’t dead yet, everything must be OK. “Hey look! We haven’t murdered them all yet! We’re great and socialism works!”
