Angelina Jolie: “Well-intentioned” but wrong about Venezuela

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

We all make fun of Hollywood celebrities who get involved in causes they know nothing about. In this case, I really think actress Angelina Jolie’s heart is in the right place, but regardless: Facts matter more than feelings, especially in situations where human life is at stake.

Watch as I fact-check her recent speech about the “causes” of the crisis in Venezuela, point by painful point.

As a practical test of “reality”, Angelina should arrange to have a few hundred dogs, now facing adoption in US shelters, shipped to Venezuela, and see how long they remain “pets” rather than “dinner”… Stunned c%#&!

Muta Ween, Considering Venezuela is a collapsed country I see your point. Before the entire world is taken over by communism (which is the UN’s agenda 21 plan and is in progress right now) it needs to be wiped off the planet (ideally) which could set off another bloody ww or at least stopped in it’s progression. We (the free world) either fight now by getting out of the UN or become the eventual grovelling slaves to the UN and their goal of world-wide communist domination which is the worst, violent, deadly system the world has ever known.

CATHY R writes “they need to kick socialism/communism out of their country forever”.
Belling the cat was a great idea by the mice , but it’s a wee bit more difficult in practice.
They have the guns ,we , the mice don’t .
ROBERT GREELEY , Wish I was at your table when these fools interjected their ignorance of Venezuela and Marxism into your conversation. Having worked and lived and shopped in the now vacated shelves in the Supermercados in Barcelona ,Venezuela , I can usually shut them down with first hand observations and knowledge. You don’t learn about communism by reading a textbook.You learn by experiencing that life of misery .

Jolie may have good intentions, but her wilful blindness to the evils of socialism is beyond the pale.

For once, Angelina should start listening to her father. He’s more knowledgeable, sensible, mature and insightful. Where does she think she got her passion for justice from?

Liza R.

That’s why I kept it short Liza..they were all over the place. One shot was we were drinking him up to roll him! The other was… we were ripping him off because he didn’t understand english and they thought he was buying!!

He really didn’t like Venezuela back then..that’s why we were trying to be extra friendly and don’t worry about the food and drink, canucks are different.

My bud and i were in a whatda?… hell just happened here!

Luckily the Manager knew both of us and we had a tab running…The Manager knew we were paying for it at the end of the night.

And in the meantime…the Venezuelan Lad is getting kind of apprehensive because of these wingnuts! There was absolutely no reason for them to interfere…that’s why I feel that was my first encounter with a liberalist globalist…They go by feelings..not facts.

“Two ladies and a male sitting not too far from us started to voice their opinion of what they thought what was appalling and disgusting that we were trying to show the Venezuelan Lad that Canadians are a good lot ..and you will like it here.(My friend & I were buying) "

Robert do you mean that they were self flagellating, self loathing Canadians? I don’t get why they were disgusted with you being friendly to the Venezuelan?

A blast from the past…

A good buddy of mine and I were at a Restaurant Bar in a Mall.. We noticed a young lad approx. the same age as us having a problem communicating with the Waitress..We invited him over to our table…Problem solved..

We ordered food and beer always asking if he wanted another one…We touched on what was happening in Venezuela at that time..his answer was basically glad to be where he was at the moment drinking beer and eating good grub with his two new buddy’s.

Now looking back in retrospect..what happened next was my first encounter of the liberalist globalist kind..

Two ladies and a male sitting not too far from us started to voice their opinion of what they thought what was appalling and disgusting that we were trying to show the Venezuelan Lad that Canadians are a good lot ..and you will like it here.(My friend & I were buying)

To keep it brief..the threesome had no clue what was truly happening at our table. But they started a beef anyway without facts.

After the beef..we made sure the Venezuelan Lad made it home safely according to his ID and the Manager of the Restaurant..

The threesome almost ruined a good moment in time…but they didn’t.

The Venezuelan Lad shook both our hands and said…“tanks Canooks eh!”

They’re sitting on the world’s largest proven oil reserve & they have it import & ration oil. They were praised by celebrities & America’s leftists as an example of socialism that works & now they’re reduced to eating their pets.

Hollywood socialists are all gut and no brain. They feel rather than think. That’s why they say and do such stupid and idiotic things.

Typical lefty and another example of the Three Pillars of Leftiedom:
1. They never learn from their mistakes.
2. They never learn from other people’s mistakes.
3. They refuse to exercise discernment.

I don’t think she’s stupid. She has to understand who and what is responsible for the misery in Venezuela. What is her end goal here?
That country sure is a good example of the destruction that happens when the government nationalizes resources.
Many millennial’s I talk to have no idea the state of Venezuela or how it got so bad, they probably think its Trumps fault. Maybe some of them who can put two and two together might figure it out with Angelina bringing it to the forefront.
I’m not sure what she wants, if its to let them into North America the answer should be no and we have our own homeless and poor to take care of and spend our money on. If it is to shame the Venezuela government, then I don’t have a problem. Socialism is cancer. That graph was pretty clear for anyone who doubts it.

At least Angelina Jolie is trying to bring attention to Venezuela but sending donations for food and clothing is not going to help them much. They need to kick socialism/communism out of their country forever. This barbaric system needs to be abolished from the face of the earth.

Great commentary. I would love to see Ben pick apart more celebrity leftist ramblings like he did in this video.

This is the same robot-programmed, Hollywood-lefty ‘celebrity’, degenerate nut-bar who hacked off her own tits because she thought she could get breast cancer…I don’t listen to crazy people…especially those who mutilate themselves!
That crackhead/meth addict look is very unattractive – unless you’re into that post-apocalyptic Zombie, skeletal look…
The only good commie is a dead commie!
