Stefan Molyneux: Venezuela is sliding into a Stalinist hell. Where is the American media?

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator
 

Stefan Molyneux notices that the US media consistently refers to left wing unelected dictators as "President" and right wing military style dictators as "Dictator" -- no matter what the consequence of their policies are to the people within their respective nations.

What is happening in Venezuela is biblical in its horror. Yet there is virtually nothing about it in the MSM. 

It is very cynical to suggest that this is because it was a socialist/communist dictatorship that brought all this horror to its people and so the media wants to hide it.

But what else can it be?

Here is a great piece on how Venezuela has gone totalitarian on comedians here at The Rebel.

Also, an interview with a Venezuelan dissident who fled the country to Canada during the middle of Chavez's reign, and described the decay of the nation leading up to where we are today.

When Stefan Molyneux was speaking of the evils of price contols was he refering to Pierre Trudeau’s version:

“More to the point, where exactly is Sean Penn…”

Exactly, GORD HIGHAM.

Oh where, of where has my little Sean gone,
Oh where, oh where can he be?
Caracas on fire and no cameras around,
Oh where, oh where can he be?

Oh where, of where has my little Sean gone,
Oh where, oh where can he be?
With his balls so small and his ego so long,
Oh where, oh where can he be?

Oh Wow JOHN LANDRY! So poor old Hugo Chavez had no choice but to set his country on a path to socialist ruin?… By the way, did the basic fact escape you that they still HAVE their oil in the ground? So the reason for their misery is maybe shit poor economic planning?

Stefan makes a lot of sense and I enjoy his videos. Of course socialism sucks, but what happens is desperate people seek it out as a solution to their problems. Cuba in order to protect itself from American imperialism sided with communism, Venezuela, in order to protect itself from Western Oligarchs choose socialism and nationalism to keep the oil for it’s people. Chavez did a pretty good job considering the pressure the US put him under, but it appears Venezuela must now capitulate and let the Oligarchs take over the oil fields.

More to the point, where exactly is Sean Penn, oh wait, he’s over in Cannes bombing on the big screen. Well maybe Danny Glover can fly down with a care basket or two, er wait he’s too busy making campaign videos for Bernie Sanders.
Perhaps Oliver Stone can spare that silver spoon in his mouth…
I know, Courtney Love can hold a benefit concert… Don’t Cry for me Venezuela

All joking aside, it is only in time of crisis do you really know who your friends are.

From Canadian Press:
“Caracas, Venezuela – Tire maker Bridgestone is selling its business in Venezuela after six decades in the country, the latest blue chip company to abandon the country as a result of runaway inflation and strict currency controls.”

Stefan Molyneaux, FreeDomainRadio, is a very bright star in this epic struggle to protect rationality and truth. Bookmarkable for regular website visits, highly recommended.

Proof socialism does not work

No surprise

Now, tell this to the university profs and their little suckers that tag along with them top get a passing grade.

As for the media?

They want nothing of this.

But you can be certain they are aware.

The reason the MSM studiously tries to ignore the utter degeneration in Venezuela is because IT is the real “An Inconvenient Truth”, unlike Al Gore’s fairy tale of the same name…
