Andy Puzder: As Venezuela is devastated by Maduro, Trump is [confronting the evils of socialism]
Fox News ^ | Andy Puzder

With his stirring repudiation of socialism, both at home and abroad, President Trump is proving himself to be the very champion of liberty and freedom the world needs.

While previous U.S. leaders have opposed totalitarian regimes, no American president since Ronald Reagan has confronted the evils of socialism as forcefully as Trump is doing today by supporting the people of Venezuela as they retake their country from the corrupt socialist dictatorship of disputed president Nicolas Maduro.

President Trump deserves more credit than he is getting for taking this stance against an economic system that throughout its history has created nothing but poverty, despair and want – all managed by totalitarian elites.

...

Of course, these radical Democrats in Washington are outraged by President Trump’s tough approach to the Maduro regime, fearing that voters will see the parallels between Venezuelan socialism and the homegrown variety being pushed by the far left. Some Democrats are even claiming that the White House is backing a “coup” in the country as a way to detract from the president’s powerful message of freedom.

“A U.S. backed coup in Venezuela is not a solution to the dire issues they face,” Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said in a recent tweet. “Trump’s efforts to install a far right opposition will only incite violence and further destabilize the region.”

Of course, the president has never actually suggested staging a coup to oust Maduro; in fact, he’s focused his diplomatic efforts on supporting Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who became the country’s legitimate leader after Maduro blatantly rigged his re-election.

Sadly, pro-socialist Democrats have to resort to such obfuscation because the tragedy in Venezuela offers a poignant preview of what they have in store for America if they gain control of the White House.

What does the Left have to offer except socialism? Show everyone exactly what it is, and force them to defend it.

Alexandria Cortez-Ocasio: Maduro in a skirt

Why does anyone listen to Hispanics trying to tell Anglos how to build a successful nation? There’s no such thing in South OR Central America. Why would we want to turn the U.S. into such a place?

"Alexandria Cortez-Ocasio: Maduro in a skirt"

Actually, he should talk to her. She's got it figured out. He's having a hard time paying for social programs and keeping supermarkets stocked, etc., but all he has to do is pay for it. AOC said it - "You just… pay for it..”

Agreed. Hopefully inspiring millions more to do the same. Perhaps hundreds of millions or billions.

Surprisingly, at least two traditional Orthodox rabbis have been saying the same since before Trump was elected: Rabbi Mendel Kessin and Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi, very popular teachers and speakers.

You are certainly right about the identity of the enemy.

Marxism is straight from hell.

Envy (the dead)

A great weight loss program (starvation).

Free vacations (to the Gulag in winter)

Help with family expenses (Uncle Bob disappeared last night. One less mouth to feed)

New dining experiences (We’re having filet of Fluffy to night kids. Yum!)

Travel opportunities (Dad needs better job opportunities kids. We’re defecting to Haiti)

With socialism and Leftist ideology flooding the media in the U.S., it appears more and more that true-believing socialists aren't just totalitarian wannabes. Some actually believe that it is better for most of the population to suffer poverty and starvation than to embrace a society which permits some people, by hard work and ingenuity, to achieve more than others (yet in doing so raise the standard of living for all).

Bernie Sanders himself has expressed admiration for breadlines and, as late as last week, was still supportive of Nicolás Maduro.

In other words, "real" socialists believe suffering is honorable because a society that limits the personal achievement to mediocrity (and worse) is "morally superior" to capitalism which rewards exceptionalism.

How people can come to this view is a mystery.

Clearly it is part of that postmodern quality that produces the "good is bad" and "up is down" perception of those on the Left.

The question is "how do rational humans accept a twisted and irrational view that in inconsistent with the reality of human experience?"

Clearly these people have been successfully indoctrinated (in colleges/universities and elsewhere), but is there something else about the human mind that permits it to hold onto a belief system that is so clearly opposed to reality.
