You've heard of skunks at the garden party? Such as still-ruling Nicaraguan socialist strongman, Daniel Ortega, who got his famous nickname from none other than the great Ronald Reagan? Well, now we have pigs at the garden party of democracy, the Organization of American States' Summit of the Americas, and this time, quite literally. At the globally watched summit, locals released a bunch of pigs through the streets of the Peruvian capital of Lima, around the Plaza San Martin, which is one of its main public spaces, spray-painted with the names of Venezuela's dictator, Nicolas Maduro, and Cuba's dictator, Raul Castro. And in the video of it, the local lefties squealed.

Here's a screen grab of the lovely spectacle from Peru's top newspaper, El Comercio, which features the actual video here.

They were praised for their socialist social programs which have since left Venezuelans starving and fleeing, and were feted at the summit itself as a great challenger to the yanqui imperialistas, which was what President Bush had to put up with when he went to the thing in Argentina in 2005, and Time magazine gushed about how late dictator Hugo Chavez would 'steal the show.' again. Hurl.

It got grosser still, when Chavez pressed a communist book so bad its own author repudiated it into President Obama's hands in 2009, which Obama called 'a nice gesture' and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton famously grabbed Chavez by the arm to show her great friendship with the ruinous brute. See all the photos from that disgrace at this Chavista website here.

Now Venezuela has been booted from the summit, getting an actual

-—Such as still-ruling Nicaraguan socialist strongman, Daniel Ortega, who got his famous nickname from none other than the great Ronald Reagan?-—

I thought former President Reagan coined that phrase for Panamanian ‘strongman’ Manuel Noriega.

Maybe he did for both.

Gosh, it looks like Venezuela too “just didn’t find the right people” who could make socialism work. Amazing how socialists never seem to be able to find “the right people”. Oh well, I’m sure it will be a big success the next time it’s tried.
