It blows my mind that people in the Right-wing movement continue to peddle the idiotic rhetoric that Venezuela and its Soviet backer Russia are thwarting the New World Order.
Instead of accepting the simplest and most logical explanation, that Venezuela is still a Soviet satellite and a failed socialist state carrying on a long-range plan of enslavement, they choose to believe Soviet-seeded propaganda in the “alternative” media that the West is to blame for all evil in the world—exactly the perception that the Kremlin’s Operation SIG has sought to achieve in the world.
Having, myself, spent considerable time in the “workers’ paradise” of Venezuela, I can tell you that it is a complete communist hell hole. While moronic conspiracy buffs—most of whom probably have never stepped foot in South America—romanticize Venezuela for social media likes, channel subscriptions, and shekels, real Venezuelans are starving, being murdered, and are subjected to horrendous living conditions—all thanks to the Soviet Union’s collectivization of Latin America over the last century.
Yet, Madurophiles and Putinphiles alike have the audacity to engage in whataboutism, accusing the West of the all-too-familiar Marxist cliches of “colonialism”, “imperialism”, ad nauseum. Never mind the poverty and violence everywhere in Venezuela, the West is to blame for everything, everywhere, always. Forget that your neighbour is being forced to eat their house pets, we have anti-Zionism and anti-colonialism to save us!
I remember seeing anti-Zionist, pro-Palestinian graffiti on slum walls as I rode a bus through Venezuela’s capital city Caracas (Caracas has the highest murder rate in the world) and in other places. Back then, I didn’t understand the close relationship between Marxist states and anti-Zionism. I, too, was almost sucked in to believing that Chavez and his socialist masonic Bolivarian utopia were thwarting the New World Order. Fortunately, I eventually woke up. However, I guess this superficial, Soviet-bred anti-Zionist gambit vindicates the failed socialist state of Venezuela in the eyes of the armchair anti-globalist keyboard warriors who portray themselves as experts. Blinded by their political zeal and bankrupt geopolitical analysis, this shows that they don’t care about real people, like the Venezuelan people. Like with every communist dictatorship, the people are just indispensable tools. These fools are so out of touch with reality that they think that Venezuelans care about rigged dialectical ideology more than what they will eat and with what they will clothe themselves. Also with every communist dictatorhip comes a completely criminal and corrupt regime and utter disregard for the sanctity of human life. In Venezuela, you can hire a hitman for as little as $7 USD—demonstrating that Venezuela is every bit the mafia state that Putinist Russia and its other satellites are.
I also remember communist Cuban agent provocateurs being flown in to Venezuela to murder dissenters and stir riots during the constant unrest and populist discontent with Chavez and his socialist “reforms” towards the last half of the 2000s. There were constant riots and demonstrations. Apparently, Chavez took a page out of Lenin’s handbook: it’s easier for foreigners to kill disseneters than have locals killing locals. It seems that to the world, Chavez would hide all this by spouting shallow, superficial rhetoric about then U.S. President George W. Bush, like rambling on about Bush being a “donkey”. Only a fool wouldn’t see through this cheap opposition. Chavez was engaging in the all-too-familiar Soviet whataboutism while his people starved (the food shortages were going on under Chavez’ rule, too). In the end, Soviet communism remained in power in Venezuela, as it does today. It matters not which puppet president graces the podium.
It’s no surprise that Russia Today television lies when it denies the mass starvation, mass violence, and mass social upheaval in Venezuela, because it could never admit that communism is a failed evil and Satanic system. Furthermore RT, as an organ of the Kremlin, could never compromise one of its satellites, which is so strategic in its destabilization of the West in this final end game. They count on people not checking it out. Well, I was there. It’s all too real.
