We witnessed horrifying images coming out of Venezuela on Tuesday. The Pro-Maduro forces were apparently running over protestors in the streets.
Venezuela has struggled with food and water concerns along with blackouts in recent months. This certainly sounds like a great place to be right? Well it is a great place according to an article over at Bernie Sander’s Senate page. In the article, it says that the American dream is more apt to be realized in Venezuela. Excuse me? This is the American dream? Scrambling for food and water while worrying about being killed by my government’s military forces does not sound like the American dream to me. In a quick look at Bernie Sanders recent twitter releases, he has said nothing condemning these actions by the Venezuelan government. Is this the America that Bernie Sanders wants us to become?
Apparently Sanders is not the only Democrat who has no problem with what is happening in Venezuela either. Representative Omar from MN says that what is happening in Venezuela was caused by US bullying.
Representative Omar continues to prove over and over again that she is out of touch with America and American values. Apparently we should reward bad behavior of dictators and socialist regimes to help them see the error of their ways by giving them help. Another outspoken Democratic leader has been silent on the Venezuelan crisis as well. Representative Ocasio-Cortez has not mentioned Venezuela once over the last few days on Twitter. Instead of speaking out against the violence, she was more interested in promoting herself and her documentary.
This type of leadership on the national stage is what has weakened our international relations. President Obama started the apology tour of the US and the rewarding of bad behavior (recall Iran and the nuclear deal). When will the Democrats call out these socialists for who they really are? This poor leadership is destroying the American dream, or what is left of it anyway.
