Americna Stooges For Socialist Dictator

These people will soon to be "handled" as they arent democratic and pose a threat to our democracy and our basic property rights.

“The United States has a long history of inappropriately intervening in Latin American countries,” said the democratic socialists’ patriarch, Sen. Bernie Sanders, in a statement. “We must not go down that road again.”

Newly elected Rep. Ro Khanna of California, meanwhile, insisted that “the US should not anoint the leader of the opposition in Venezuela during an internal, polarized conflict.” Khanna also urged Washington to “end sanctions” against the Venezuelan regime. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez re-tweeted Khanna’s sentiment.

Though not an avowed democratic socialist herself, Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted: “A US-backed coup in Venezuela is not a solution to the dire issues they face. Trump’s efforts to install a far-right opposition will only incite violence and further destabilize the region.” Guaidó’s far-right affinities must be news to him and the center-left party he leads.

A statement from the elected leadership of the Democratic Socialists of America reads like an effort to mimic the hysterical tone familiar to students of Soviet diplomacy. If the red nostalgia weren’t already thick enough, the DSA alleges that US sanctions on Caracas are intended to “make the economy scream” — an expression attributed to Richard Nixon in his effort to squeeze the Allende government in Chile.

This “US-driven coup is totally unacceptable,” the statement continues, “and just the latest in a long history of US-backed coups in the region showing blatant contempt not just for democracy but national sovereignty.”
