Skip to comments.Progressives On Socialist Hellhole Venezuela: Hey, It's Better Than The U.S.

Well, if you want to lose faith in humanity and see the stupidity of hipster liberals in New York City, this is the video for you. Ami Horowitz took to the streets to talk about income inequality with some of the most insufferable people on the planet: progressives. Of course, they all felt it was a critical issue. One man was a member of the Working Families Party in the state. So, which country can we look to for guidance in solving this issue? How about socialist hellhole Venezuela? It’s the nation with rolling blackouts, inadequate medical supplies, no toilet paper, no food, and rampant crime. Venezuelans are looting to survive, where people are eating pets and eating out of trashcans. With food supplies running low, government-run committees have been set up to assisted with distribution, but for those who have criticized the government, no food for you. That’s 21st Century Socialism.
Viva La Venezuela!
And apparently this is what these kids want (via Daily Wire):
Horowitz then asks the interviewees, all of whom no doubt are "still feeling the Bern," if they think that we should model ourselves on another country that promises "income equality": Venezuela, which, he explains, is in the midst of an economic death spiral to the point where it is experiencing dire food shortages and frequent violence between citizens and police forces. Despite the hellish reality of Venezuela’s failed socialist state, all of his interviewees still thought Venezuela’s day-long food lines would be preferable to the United States’ selfish, "undignified" capitalistic system.
“Even though there’s some downside, there’s some violence there and some food lines," Horowitz says to bandana guy, "but still everyone has to do the same thing — they wait in line equally."
Though the young man appears to be quite knowledgeable about Venezuela, nodding and agreeing with Horowitz' description of its crisis situation, he still agrees with Horowitz that it’s better to "wait in line equally."
"That is, I think, a fair system," says Horowitz.
"I agree," says bandana guy emphatically.
Interviewee after interviewee agrees that modeling ourselves after Venezuela is a great idea because America is just too unfair and "undignified."
"If you gotta wait in line for stuff, we should all wait in line together," says Horowitz.
Either these people don’t read, don’t care, or don’t know. Regardless, slamming America while idolizing a left wing nation that’s an economic nightmare; that’s progressivism for you.
Well that shows what @$$h0!es progressives are
Delusional. Shared misery is better than merit-based and effort-based prosperity? Losers.
The mental growth of progs seems to go haywire and cease advancing at the age of 7.
Socialism: Everyone waits in line equally.
We can set up a go fund me page to get one way tickets for those sorry aholes and send them to Venezuela.
We need to start crowdfunding moving these jokers out of this country for their own good.
Project Progressive Exodus!
I’m not into self-flagellation. Socialism and Marxism is evil because it eliminates freedom. These morons couldn’t think their way out of a wet paper bag.
Has venezuela closed down immigration from the US?
A country floating on oil that is socialist/communist, but runs out of food, beer, and toilet paper. Everything leftists touch turns to crap.
President Trump made a few negative comments about Venezuela, so progressives are now convinced it must be a swell place.
Just once I wish the president could talk down eating dog poop.
They are agreeing with someone self identified as a “progressive”. To do differently in New York City is to be shunned.
It is not surprising that he could get many to agree.
The Founding Fathers had an inclination that their new form of government by the people could possibly fail. Inherently most people, (assume the typical demographics and types),want to be ruled,are lazy and plain stupid. Socialist politicians know this so they co-opted the educational system,infested the media outlets and subjugated groups to divide. They also made our Constitution work against us. It’s been going on for over a 100 years. I am not a bit surprised sh*tholes like Venezuela and Cuba are admired. It’s no wonder the Soviet Union was once loved by the Socialists and now is not in favor because Communism collapsed. The left and their new ally Islam are the greatest threats to the world and must be destroyed.
No one in the Venezuelan socialist party has to wait in line or eat their pets. Some people are more equal than others.

“Socialism: Everyone waits in line equally.”
But they don’t. Some people are in the front of the line, and some are in the back. Nothing equal about that. It’s not enough for everyone to be standing in line. Everyone has to be first in line.
Didn’t think your IQ could go below ZERO
“Socialism: Everyone waits in line equally.”
Yep, except for those who are “more equal” than the others.

who doesn't have toilet paper.)
