“Democratic socialists” silent as Venezuela limits fuel to political loyalists

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Late in 2017, Venezuela began ramping up its political surveillance of their citizens in preparation of a coming election.

The government brought in something called the Homeland Card. The card isn’t ID, but it does allow the government to track the needs and political leanings of their citizens.

Unless Venezuelans register for the Homeland Card, they can’t vote, access public health care, universities or subsidized food.

Fifteen million Venezuelans have already signed up for the card. Many others will starve to death, if they don't.

And now the government will use data gathered by the card to direct the limited fuel supply of the ironically oil rich Venezuela, to those politically loyal to President Maduro.

Where are the democratic socialist media darlings like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders and Rachel Notley, to stand against this electronic Stasi in the form of a plastic card?

Comrade Notley wants us all to be good little prolls and let her minions live in splendor. We’ll be eating mice and our pets someday UNLESS conservatives get off their rumps and explain to low-information voters why Notley and crew must go.

Tom Bradly. YOU CARE! That’s why you’re pretending not to, you’re upset they messed up your march to paradise. Serves you right. You were foolish for thinking it would ever work out in the first place.

I give a heck about Venezuela . I lived and worked in Venezuela . I have friends who have left .Friends who want to leave .Friends who can’t find work, food .
This is what communism does to a country,an economy and a people.
And it took only fifteen years .
I get enraged when I see the word democratic in front of socialist. There is no democracy in socialism Period. Only the equality if despair .

Michael Moore should really spend the next 10 months in Venezuela…he won’t resemble Jabba the Hut at the end of his “diet”.

But…but…it just wasn’t implemented correctly. No…it failed because it was!

Yes indeed, in a socialist state, party members are more equal that others.

And time for Sean Penn, Oliver Stone, Michael Moore and Danny Glover to once again sing the praises of Maduro?
