MUST WATCH: Ami Horowitz annihilates the left's love of socialism with footage out of Venezuela

StaffRebel Columnist

With more and more liberals going farther to the left and embracing socialism, Ami Horowitz went to Venezuela to expose just how bad socialism is.

Speaking to locals, they tell him that they pass out because food has become so scarce. People stand in lines for hours just to get something to eat.

One girl tells Horowitz that she began standing in line for food at 2am and was only able to get a can of milk. And that's only because she got lucky.

And how is the government fairing? Just fine. “They have their mansions, food, new cars. They are comfortable,” a woman says. “We can't have anything without fear of being robbed.”

Near the end of the video Horowitz asks a young woman what she thinks of liberals wanting to bring socialism to America. She replies, “They would have to live what we are living so they can see for themselves that nothing is good, so they see this is only a nightmare for us, a terror.”

I spent two weeks in Venezuela sixteen tears ago. Caracas then was a no go zone for tourists. What a beautiful country spoiled by socialism. During my time there, I traveled quite extensively. The beauty and warmth of the people was memorable. They don’t like Americans so i always wore the Canadian emblem somewhere on myself. It was dangerous to the extent that all hotel security carried 12 gauge shot guns everywhere. The police were corrupt, and the difference between the haves and have nots was staggering. This is what left leaning socialism gets you in the end. Our pampered younger generations who demonstrate against whatever their left wing professors tell them untruths about, swallow their bullshit everytime(and it takes years to get them back in the fold if at all). Impeach bin trudeau now!

Cathy R excellent comment.

Would like to add something. Joel Richardson of Joel’s Trumpet works with refugees in the Middle East, refugees who have been displaced and traumatized by ISIS etc. These traumatized people are coming to faith in Messiah in unprecedented numbers. The fastest growing religion in Iran right now, is Christianity. Yes, we have people coming to our shores who for the most part want to hurt us, but as Joel has witnessed, wherevervIslam goes, so does the power and its impact of our Messiah gets stronger. Christians, albeit persecuted, are becoming real and their faith solid. Often true repentance comes only through persecution. We can either fight it, or accept it and let Abba have His way in us. He has given us an opportunity to share the Good News of the Gospel to people who would otherwise not be able to hear.

Another one of satan’s many lies. Talk about the 1 percenters. Speaking of lies, an article in today’s NP about for all of Trudeau’s pompous spewing about his deep love for the middle class, he’s actually doing nothing for the middle class. Big surprise. It’s all about lies, indoctrination, wealth distribution and social engineering.

Where’s all the defenders of socialism we all know troll this site? No comments from the usual socialist suspects we all know check out these stories on a regular basis? Nothing to say?

“When Elie Weisel was asked to explain the root of his despair, he said it was not the torments he endured but the indifference of the world to believe what had happened and the instinct to minimize what had happened.’

Our world today is the same. A refusal to believe what is happening elsewhere will happen here. And an instinct to minimize what is happening.

Socialism has always brought misery where ever it has taken root. Sometimes it has taken a while sometimes it happens quickly like with Pol Pot. But it always brings misery.

CATHY R, right on, that’s exactly what the agenda is and there are many ways to deter childbirth.

So – from another angle (sorry to vex those who know where I’m coming from!)

From my soapbox: off-topic, yet on-topic – glad to see yet another country with a “spanking ban” has turned out so peaceful and prosperous promised, just like Sweden (I’m being sarcastic – it’s not true). Rather than the child protection system (as little as there is of it) running around apprehending children from being disciplined, they might turn their attention to the starvation and squalor, oh wait. No I change my mind. It’s better the Gov’t steal your kids if you can’t feed them, it’s better you go to jail too – you do get food there. Why didn’t I see this before?

Rebel Staff. Bill S-206 “The criminalization of parenting act” is running through Senate right now. Are any of you going to cover the War-On-Parenting movement? Or is the destruction of Family in Canada (as the EU is doing) not really much of a concern here? If so, happy to talk – you know where to find me. “Sh*t or get off the pot” as the adage goes…

Somebody send this to Ms. Klein and her hubby Avi Lewis.

Not one socialist government has ever lasted.

They always fail and their people always suffer immensely.

Cathy R, well said. I couldn’t agree more.

500,000,000 or 500 million I meant.

The description of the dichotomy between the two classes, the poor and the super rich, is apropos. That divergence is clearly visible here in Canada; on the federal level between Trudeau and his Liberal cronies, and we, the unwashed masses; and on the provincial level between Notely and Wynne and their cronies, and ordinary Alberta and Ontario citizens. They all live in the lap of luxury at the tax payers expense, and are running up debts that the nation and the provinces will never be able to pay back. The net result will inevitably mean an economic collapse that will make the great depression of the 1930s look like a time of universal affluence. The only difference between us and Venezuela is that we’re not as far down that road yet. Unless we can get these destroyers out of office, we’re all screwed.

Socialism/communism/islamism is rampant in the entire world because the UN is pushing it to demolish democracy and nationalism to gain full control. We are in a war against this demonic organization that has a grip on our libtard governments and the majority of people through MSM mind control/brainwashing. If you are not one of the ellite, you count for nothing and eventually will end up like the extremely poor starving people in this video when it overtakes your country. Countries have to take back control and get the hell out of the islamofascist UN. The UN’s sick agenda has a goal of depopulating the world to 500,000,000 million people and are in the process of it right now. It’ll all blow up in their faces eventually when the blind and coma-tized people start coming to their senses through people, who do not adhere to the MSM lies and unreality, enlightening them with the truth.

Socialism, fast-tracks death and decay of a nation. Those who support it have no idea what is truly means.

I wonder why none of the socialist loving left are moving there? They seem to hate our capitalist country so much.

I am so jealous of such a Utopia. Good bet Andrew Stephenson will not comment on this story.

Coming to Canada soon. Complement of King Rat Trudeau. Butt sniffing Muslims will be the privileged class. Canadians will be forming circles at the back of the line.

Betcha the lugenpresse never shows this video in its entirety!

So much for the pie in the sky socialist dream. Socialism is like that in Canada, too, only to a lesser extent right now.
