It is a nation that was often pointed to by Hollywood and media elite as a socialist utopia. Actor Sean Penn embraced its former socialist dictator and the country’s “socialist revolution” which he hoped would spread across the globe. Filmmaker Michael Moore gushed over the lie that Venezuela provided free healthcare and education to the poor. (These were official publicly declared policies by the dictator regime – the reality was far different but Mr. Moore was either too ignorant and simply ignored that reality.) And now, bloodshed is rampant as people are starving, homeless, and increasingly hopeless.
Socialism kills. It always has. It always will.
Longer and longer food lines in Venezuela has led to the recent and bloody violence depicted below:
What has Sean Penn, Michael Moore, or the Mainstream Media said about the violent hardships now gripping the Venezuelan people? NOTHING. A recent Lifezette report put it this way:
Study finds ABC, CBS, NBC barely cover left-wing catastrophe, avoid word ‘socialism’
Out of approximately 50,000 total evening news stories on ABC, CBS and NBC combined in the last four years, just 25 have covered the ongoing crisis in socialist Venezuela, according to a Media Research Center study published Tuesday.
…“The network evening news programs seem allergic to reporting on the ongoing crisis in Venezuela,” Ciandella told LifeZette in an email. “Even worse, the few times they have managed to cover the widespread poverty, starvation and government oppression in that country, they somehow find ways to do that without mentioning the word ‘socialism.’”
Millions of people are suffering but America’s Mainstream Media doesn’t care because honest coverage of that crisis requires having to report on the threat that is socialism. These elite have never cared for the working class. They see a nation’s population as pawns meant to be manipulated and controlled via lies and perception. There is no honest reporting. It is all predetermined manipulation.
Venezuela is dying and the American media doesn’t care because to actually care would force them to admit to the American people that they’ve been lying to them all along.
