In the latest "socialist" deranged phenomenon plaguing Venezuela, in which "democratic socialism" aka "socialism of the 21st century" was elected "democratically," Maduro called for the Venezuelan forces to burn trucks bringing food, and medicine to Venezuelans.

The National Police under orders from Maduro burnt the trucks, and the people present didn't have the time to get to the first truck as they saw the food and medicine burning meanwhile they lack these products.

Venezuelan people got into the two remaining burning trucks and unloaded all they could before the trucks were consumed, one truck was completely burned with all the food and medicine. More than 20 people were injured in the altercations, and as they tried to stop the Venezuelan forces from burning the trucks.

One man was shot in the eye with a pellet gun and probably will lose his eye, and another woman showed where she was shot with pellets in her torso in a video I saw on Univision.

The national police used tear gas, pellet guns/shotguns, and force to try to stop Venezuelans from getting the food and medicine.

This is not the first time Maduro has done this as he continues to claim that "Venezuelans don't need charity, and that they are well taken care of by the socialist economy of Venezuela," despite the fact that the opposite is the truth.

The videos are in Spanish







Also of note, at least 56 Venezuelan soldiers fled Venezuela because of this latest stunt by Maduro.

Here is a video showing some of the Venezuelan soldiers deserting the regime of Maduro after this latest stunt.



Welcome to the reality of "socialism."

This nut Maduro sounds a lot like American Democrats ...

"Venezuela has no problem"

"There's no border crisis"

Socialism seems to be a "world-wide" mental affliction 😎

They just announced in Univision that more than 60 Venezuelan soldiers have today deserted, and that 80% of the soldiers are against Maduro.

BTW, i also saw a video of Maduro, once again, claiming that the people being aggressive are the "imperialists from countries like the U.S. and Colombia." The same BS socialist/communist revolutionaries like to spew when in fact the opposite is the truth. It is the socialist dictatorial government of Maduro which is not only aggressive, but also oppressive against the Venezuelan people.

The Venezuelans will turn to cannibalism any day now at this rate. We need to do air drops from a high enough altitude to avoid their anti aircraft systems so that they don't die. (In Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan among other nations in recent history we were pretty good at that, even in a war zone)

All jokes aside? Here's a reality angle: Maybe they should starve until they're willing to do more than throw rocks and shout in the street. When I used to be into the mechanics of a rebellion and rebel movements, I do recall the organization of the people into an effective force and the procurement of weapons being a responsibility of the oppressed citizenry. They don't need to fight the state militarily in the classic sense of a revolution such as in Cuba, they just need to grind society to a halt and get organized.

You mean to tell me no one can smuggle any food and medicine over rugged or rural stretches of the border? Mexicans can get hundreds of TONS of fentanyl, heroin, coc aine, and methamphetamine over our border but the Venezuelans can't work together for rice and aspirin? Maduro must've already built his wall.

Where are the socialism apologists who swear that Maduro's government is doing great things?

It's definitely not socialism's fault right? RIGHT?

First of all, in all socialist and communist regimes the citizens are disarmed. They were/are disarmed in Cuba, and in Venezuela among many other nations. So your claim that people should be able to arm themselves has no basis on reality, since the people are disarmed. The only people armed are the Venezuelan forces, the Cuban military forces present in Venezuela, and the Chavistas.

Second of all, to claim that what is happening in the southern border of the U.S. means that Venezuelans should easily get food, and medicine is once again wrong.

In the U.S. the democrats/the left are working full time to stop any enforcement of our laws in our southern border, and in many ways they are succeeding... In Venezuela the regime of Maduro controls everything, even when millions of Venezuelans are against it. Not to mention the fact that there aren't "billions of dollars being used to illegally get food and medicine into Venezuela." There is no "billion dollar infrastructure within Venezuela to help smuggle food, and medicine."

You are trying to compare apples with oranges.

I didn't even want to read this... just because it's too horrible and heinous to contemplate. How can any person do this? How??? I just can't wrap my head around it. At all.

Thanks for posting. Even if you did make my screen fuzzy for a moment there. I hate it with all my heart and soul, but we need to see it and know it.

You obviously haven't seen the new narrative.

It was a socialist utopia, until the US wanted to steal all their low grade, high refinement cost, crap crude. Because it's not like we aren't producing a ton of better quality crude or anything like that.

Check this out:

Venezuela soldiers abandon posts at Colombia border


"Welcome to the right side of history", he told soldiers who had abandoned their posts, adding that soldiers who joined them would be guaranteed "amnesty."


Thank Heaven for small wonders in times like this, right? It's good to know that even under such duress, so many people still put their conscience and humanity first.

Your link has a great timeline at the end too -- thank you for posting it!

Or the fact that fracking has been so successful that it has effectively forced OPEC to drop the price to the point of collapse. Socialist VZ couldn't manage and the price of their # crude remained the same rather than being priced at market value. No one bought from VZ, whole economy collapses, definitely the US' fault..Right?

American leftists are some of the dumbest people on Earth to be espousing the virtues of socialism in the post-Soviet era.

You forgot that American leftists are also AGW cultists, so Venezuela's socialist Utopia should ban fossil fuels to become one with the planet.

I guess what they mean by being one with the planet is that the population should become room temperature as quickly as possible, thus removing their carbon footprint...

Democrats won't like Venezuela next year for the same reason they hate Russia now.

The socialist thing didn't work.

I'm not convinced AGW theory is wrong as many of my fellow conservatives assert.

I am convinced liberals will use anything to implement socialism wherever they can.

They LOVE nationalization of industry and that has been the goal of the liberal use of AGW.

MY position is that the problem has a scientific and engineering solution. If we caused it then we can change it. We did it with the ozone layer, we can do it with the increase in greenhouse gasses as emitted by our activity.

We need to SELL our way out of this problem not tax and enslave and impoverish our way out. The tech is there. We don't need the left's socialism and slavery.

This is what needs to happen and the quicker it does the better for Venezuelan's. If they can deal with this without outside military influence, the transition of power will be a lot less violent. The more citizens on the same page the better.

One way or another Maduro is going down, best for them not to prolong the inevitable. After this takes place it will be much easier for humanitarian aid to deliver the help and support they need. Then comes the long road to rebuilding and restructuring their country, sooner the better.

Meanwhile democrats wants to bring socialism here. Hope you are all seeing the preview on what may happen here in the U.S if the socialists have their way. I have a couple of friends from venezuela i play an mmo with. Trust me, its bad, very bad. The reason they play the game is to try to sell the ingame gold they make to try and survive. and honestly i don't blame them.

I asked her to write a letter and her testimony in english so i could post it here. But she hasnt sent it yet. I believe the words of someone i know than some mainstream outlet. I did take screenshots on what she told me but her name is on there and I do not wish to put her in harms way.

Maduro needs to go. He is a dictator

I think we pollute too much. We do need to fix that.

I'm not sold on AGW because the math isn't actually there to prove it, no matter how much they cherry pick stuff.

Is our climate changing? Evidence is there to suggest that... we should be sliding into another mini ice age.

Did humans and cow farts do it? We may have nudged it here or there or somewhere, but I don't think in the long run that what we do on the planet had that much of an impact.

Will taxing the hell out of everything fix it?

Just... no. It's a rather blatant power grab.

So I'm on the same page as you, I think.

None of which has to do with Venezuela probably, so sorry mods for the thread drift.

I think we can get rich as hell doing it. So-called "Green" technology has been proving itself over the last 5 years or so. It's not 100% environmentally friendly, but it is better than our existing technology. Demand for cleaner sources of energy is rising. This is a good thing for many reasons.


Venezuela should be using their oil to manufacture the advanced plastics and other materials technologies so derived for alternative methods of power generation. Instead of trying to sell garbage crude they should be using it to manufacture pharmaceuticals. There are many things oil will still be used for in the future. I just don't think that it should be used for energy anymore.

The Venezuelan people acquiring arms and fighting isn't even the least bit realistic, I guess that line was misleading when I said the people are responsible for getting armed. In Cuba, Castro, Guevara and men who mostly died upon landing at the beach had to get a boat to go there.

The only substantial points were that the people could be more organized, and if they are, we aren't hearing about it even though they'd make GREAT stories. Also, the wall comment was a joke, a pun, it wasn't serious. I do think if they tried hard enough and most likely do (hopefully, we just don't hear about it), they could smuggle supplies in certain ways and over certain parts of the border.
