Squad Blames U.S. Sanctions for Hunger in Socialist Dictatorship That Nationalized Everything

Published

on

The treason lobby is at it again.

A group of 18 progressive House Democrats sent a letter to President Biden, urging him to lift all sanctions against Venezuela that “exacerbate the humanitarian situation” in the country.

The signatories include Rep. Ilhan Omar, AOC, Ayanna Pressley, Andy Levin, and Rashida Tlaib.

This letter comes after DSA members held a lovefest with Maduro, Venezuela’s dictator and the head of a drug cartel targeting Americans. 

“Over the course of the crisis, Venezuela has experienced the second largest documented peacetime economic contraction in modern history. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, the number of undernourished Venezuelans quintupled in only five years,” the letter claims and then blames America. “The suffering of the Venezuelan people is a tragedy. Though this tragedy is the result of various factors, numerous studies have shown that U.S. sanctions have been one of the leading causes.”

The United States is not blocking food shipments to Venezuela. As a matter of fact, we’re the ones providing food aid.

The Democrat letter blames Trump’s sanctions, but Venezuela was facing hunger before Trump even took office. 

This is an article I wrote in early 2016.

A mob of starving people advanced on the presidential palace chanting, “We want food”. They were met by soldiers and police dispatched by the tyrant from his lavish palace decorated opulently with a golden sun, giant rock crystal mirrors, sparkling chandeliers and towering oil portraits.

The scene wasn’t 19th century France, but 21st century Venezuela. 

And if you are wondering why you haven’t seen it on the news, it’s because Venezuela is a Socialist disaster area that was once being used as a model by the left. Now it’s a place where the vast majority of people can’t afford basic food staples and a third are down to two or fewer meals a day. 

The left-wing sociologist running the Venezuelan economy doesn’t believe in inflation. Last year he wrote a pamphlet in which he insisted that “Inflation does not exist in real life.”

Inflation certainly exists in Venezuela which has seen 500% inflation. The Socialist regime responded with price controls. When stores and farmers wouldn’t sell at set prices, soldiers were sent in to take them over. Crowds initially cheered all the subsidized products. But they wouldn’t be cheering for long.

After the fun of electronics stores forced to discount televisions at gunpoint, there were no more televisions. And no more cars. Then no more toilet paper, milk and other basic necessities. 

The Socialist government tried to solve its money problem by printing more money. But it wasn’t able to pay for the money it wanted to print because of the inflation which officially did not exist.

Venezuela needs 10 billion bank notes in its new inflationary economy, more than America, and it can’t pay for them. Or pay for anything else. It can’t afford to import food and it refuses to pay fair prices at home. Meanwhile eggs, at the official exchange rate, run to $150, McDonald’s fries for $126 and a pound of coffee for $85. Socialists may not believe in inflation, but inflation believes in them.

No wonder the people are starving.

Teachers sell passing grades to students in exchange for milk and flour. Lines at government stores are endless and an entire economy has been built on buying and trades spots on food lines. Fingerprint scanners are used to enforce milk rations. And a heavy military police and military presence is required to stop mobs of starving people from grabbing the food as soon as it arrives.    

Sound familiar?

The Squad certainly hopes you don’t think so. But that’s how socialism works. And it’s why Venezuela is starving.
