TV in Venezuela last night broadcast government rallies and tried to pretend there weren't thoustands in the streets opposing the government.
Our Commie Obmao-adoring press did the same about reporting 1/10 of TEA Party rallies in DC and inflating 10x all the Lefty ACORN and union cretins who marched in their social justice parades.
Just a thought here:
When the government that said it would give you everything you need can’t do that anymore... You get people in the street demanding everything under the sun including their freedom from their government.
Largest oil reserves in the world, but no toilet paper, I would be mad as hell too...
NPR interviewed a guy this morning who they identified as the leader of the student protest movement down there. He was complaining about the government beating and shooting at students. But he said he did not support the political opposition. Instead he sought only reforms from the existing Maduro regime. My thought was, wow, your people are being brutalized and all you want is a better socialism. I hope he’s an outlier and that the broader movement is more willing to take out the socialist trash.
