Inside Venezuela's Orwellian nightmare: Gunshots and Explosions

Jay FayzaRebel Columnist

Venezuela has become one of the most dangerous places in the world, thanks to a Marxist dictatorship that has ruined the nation's economy and democratic system.

Since Hugo Chavez became President of Venezuela in 1999, his party has implemented a form of socialism funded by profits from oil exports.

When the price of oil dropped, the socialist policies became unsustainable and the country entered a crisis.

WATCH my interview with a Venezuelan dissident to see his warning for leftists looking to implement the same ruinous policies elsewhere.

I grew up in a communist country. What’s happening in Venezuela seems familiar to me. It’s just the natural course of that defunct system. It’s pretty dumb for a country to put all their eggs in one basket to begin with. They should have left the oil industry in private hands and used the royalties to develop the rest of their economy. Oh well..

It’s interesting how Venezuela has completely fallen off the msm’s radar. Seems like just yesterday they were lining up to sing the praises of Hugo Chavez and his communist miracle. It’s not unlike their silence and eventual smug nay-saying about the freedom movements that sprang up in eastern and central Europe in the 70’s and 80’s. Fortunately those were successful. For various reasons that would be worth exploring, Venezuela isn’t and is unlikely to be. The frightening thing is, as many contribs in this discussion have pointed out, that among Canadian leftists the idea of a centrally controlled resource-based economy was once very popular. When the revolution came all those industries would be nationalized and run by loyal apparatchiks, for the good of us all. Glad it never gained traction but among some leftists the dream lives on. What’s going in in Venezuela needs to be publicized and it’s up to new media to do the job.

Let this serve as an example for what is coming to Canada.

Does anyone really believe that the Progressivist-Sodomites will really give up power?

Does anyone believe that they will just walk away when they are routed?

They will not; they intend to remain and turn events in their favor by violence.

Everyone must be ready and prepared to fight back and destroy the Progressivist-Sodomites and their fellow travelers.

They must be rounded up and executed, wholesale and without trials.

No need for trials, as their associations will be proof enough of their guilt.

The true heroes will be those who have the blood of liberals on their hands.

My heart goes out to the people of Venezuela. Such a beautiful country being ruined by this treacherous government. How can trudope stand with this violation of human rights and the Cuban troops being used. His daddy (fidel) would be so proud of him. The left wingers are oh so silent about this .

Drew Wakariuk, you’re right but they don’t just ignore the little dick-tator, they praise him and support his various Canada destroying decisions. It’s all very sad. Every boomer in the country must be there on voting day to do their job.

Allan Peterson you got that right , and especially after years of calling Harper a dictator, they ignore an actual dictatorship in the making.

Maurice Potvin the lefty hypocrites will not say a damn thing about Cuban intervention , but the second the US even suggests something they will lose their minds.

This situation will be water off a ducks back for our leftie pals here in Canuckistan since:

1. They never learn from their mistakes.
2. They never learn from the mistakes of others.
3. They refuse to exercise discernment.

Poor Venezuelans who used to dance in the streets at festivals. The White House has issued a warning to their gov’t today with the freezing of the assets of their President.

The guest is more right than he knows. When you and I read 1984, we see it as horrible state that no one would be interested in. We tend to assume that everyone agrees – but that’s wrong. When Lefty’s read that book, they think it’s a blue print for setting up the perfect society – like the movie Divergent. They love it!!

Ever notice in those types of movies the society is never very large? It’s not just because Lefty’s believe in depopulating the planet, it’s because you could only set something like that up if you have a super-tiny population.

There’ll be Venezuelan refugees knocking on our door soon, but PM Empty Suit won’t let them in, because, after all, Venezuela is a socialist workers’ paradise and a model for Canada – why would they want to leave?

BILL ELDER…It looks as if the road WE are on is the one you speak of.

It takes a special kind of weapons grade stupid to bankrupt a resource rich nation -

I would have thought Sean Pennezuela would have things under control by now. With help from Oliver Stone and Michael “Jabba the Hut” Moore, a fine propaganda documentary should already be underway. Instead they are rationing grass clippings at the local supermarket. To all you deranged Bernie supporters, he is in love with that “social democracy” as well. WAKE UP ….what if Rod Loyola takes over for the walking wrinkle, Notley? Fools actually think this COULDN’T happen here, give the dippers another term and it will be our blood in the streets.

Jihadi Justin’s plan for Canada with a Sharia twist………………..

So from a well to do stable constitutional democracy, Venezuela has degenerated to the point that the interviewee is calmly assessing propane bombs vs gun shots as a matter of course.

His warning about not electing socialist degenerates is a little too late for Canada.
commented 2017-07-31 18:11:43 -0400
Witness the future, that is in store for Canada under Trudictatotship. We are being dragged down to hell, with the current Government calling the shots.

I certainly don’t want to encourage foreign (US) intervention in domestic squabbles, but those people are living through Hell through no fault of there own! Besides, foreign intervention is already taking place in the form of the Cuban army, making an untenable situation 1000 times worse. If the citizens could identify one leader who could liaise with the US military, and the US military could train a civilian army, equip them, and then act in an advisory capacity, perhaps that would work out. Of course, that hasn’t worked out to good on other occasions. Gosh, it’s hard to know what to do, but the situation down their is horrendous. Those poor citizens of Venezuela!!

Jay, thanks for interviewing this gentleman; what terrible oppression he is living under. We need to heed his warning.
