(Caravan UPDATE) Socialist reporter: “This is a crisis made in Washington”

David MenziesMission Specialist

Liberation News reporter Gloria La Riva has been here in Mexico to cover the caravan almost as long as we have — but she's come to some different conclusions...

She emphasizes the children taking part in the caravan, even though I saw far more adult males than mothers with babes in arms.

It doesn't take long for our conversation to veer from what she's seen on the ground, to leftist ideology. Gloria is a self-described socialist, and what she tells me pretty much lines up with that worldview.

For example, she says the U.S. government is "extremely racist." So naturally I asked her why all these migrants were so eager to enter a "racist" country, and she explains that they "aren't really aware" of this “racism,” you see...

She also claims that "there are no legal means" for these people to come to the United States, and that this too is evidence of systemic racism.

La Riva seems to base a lot of her positions on anecdotal evidence, underpinned by socialist talking points.

But what do you think? Tell me in the comments!

PS: Stay tuned for Part 2 of this conversation, when La Riva doubles down on her "blame America" position and has some... interesting things to say about Venezuela!

Excellent interview David Menzies. She certainly revealed her agenda.
Reminds me of Kkkkkatie in The Way We Were.

A few questions come to mind. Is she against all the left wing celebrities that agree with her, even though they make staggering amounts more than the rest of us? If an overtaken cruise ship full of thousands of white Europeans were about to invade, does she think conservatives would be ok with that? Does she think we would not want them vetted? Why are the left to stupid to realize that it is not race that determines who we welcome into our countries? It is character.

After 70 years of the Russian experiment . . can anyone still parrot that nonsense? When the real Communist Party takes over, this type will be the first to be purged.

Every Mexican Honduran and Guatemalan trying to storm into America is a nationalist. They are patriotic and flag waving sons of their homeland. That is considered noble and heroic. But only Americas, the great white racists are forbidden to be patriotic or express anything good about 250 years of American history. Even if those people do settle in the US they will still be loyal to their old country and teach that to their children They are not immigrants as much as they are colonists.

Crazy people – like that delusional commie retard you interviewed – should be locked up and receiving treatment from mental health professionals for their mental disorders…not walking around breathing free air and spreading their lying nonsense about.

That’s the point isn’t it??… The boundaries of nations are being “tested” by international socialists to see how much they than penetrate US national laws… Now just “transpose” this same caravan to the borders of, say, Russia, or China, or even Mongolia or Timbuktu, and see if they would be “welcomed” or “entertained” for serious discussion… It’s all BULLSHIT!

Socialists are the most ignorant people that have ever walked the Earth. And why is it they act the most concerned for others while they do less than anyone else for other people? As if placing burdens and demands on others somehow makes them great people.

The stupidity of the left is mind boggling.

You might be more right than you know. Part way through this fascinating video, Yuri, besides referring to Lefty’s a useful idiots over and over again, he also states they’re lost. There is no point trying to bring them back or engage them.

You’re so patient. I wonder where she gets her news.
commented 2018-11-06 19:58:17 -0500
These left wing loud mouths will always find a way to blame somebody else and demand some sort of rights.

Build that wall!

Those socialists are so disconnected from reality that it’s impossible to put some sense into them. They have no clue of economics, even praising Venezuela. This is beyond insane. She wants to bring all the poor of Central and South America into the US and wants everyone to have free health care. Money grows on trees for her, I guess. She probably has had a spoiled, comfortable life so far. Until the welfare state abruptly stops and goes bankrupt, there is nothing we can do with those lunatics.

It is so frustrating to listen to this woman. She could not be more wrong about just about everything. One question, does she have children or cats? Her brain is a toxic wasteland. I would feel sorry for her except that she is doing damage and there are many more just like her.
She’s not a socialist, she is a communist. Communism serves social justice from the barrel of a gun. Every country has a right to decide who comes in, how and when.

Looks like this Gloria La Riva is another run of the mill, cooker cutter, agenda pushing, UN loving, socialist just like her comrades at CTV, CBC, Global, CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC. BBC and the like. All collectively fueled by Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The “crisis” would only worsen if the “caravan” was granted access. The flood gates would open. The “little children” would get trampled in the stampede.

How ironic that “socialists” fleeing other socialists always look to market economies for safe haven. Then once safe, they vote for more socialists…
