I wonder how the loony left feels about Venezuela now? As we have seen throughout history, bad things can happen when the people are disarmed. This story crushes the liberal argument that our 2A isn’t necessary in modern times.

Unfortunately the loony left never accepts reality, only their made-up construct of an idealistic, impossibly ridiculous utopia, based on lies and disinformation…so I’m sure this won’t affect them a bit.

Facing the facts about Venezuela’s death squads

By Post Editorial Board

People hold placards that spell out in Spanish: “No more torture” during an opposition protest against President Nicolás Maduro in Caracas, Venezuela.AP

Death squads have returned to Latin America, this time on the left: A new UN report says government forces in Venezuela have killed at least 6,854 people since the start of 2018, and cites accounts by independent groups that put the total above 9,000.

To be clear, it’s the witnesses who call them “death squads”: They describe Special Action Forces, masked and dressed in black, careening into towns in pickup trucks with no license plates — and proceeding to break into homes, molesting women and separating out young men, then executing them. Afterward, the goons stage a scene to make it look like their victims were resisting arrest.

The government calls this “Operations for the Liberation of the People.” UN human-rights officials told The New York Times it’s in fact “an instrument to instill fear in the population.”

On top of the death squads, the report flags thousands of political arrests and widespread torture of political prisoners, including waterboarding, electric shocks, suffocation with plastic bags and rape.

Dictator Nicolás Maduro gave unusual access to the UN investigators, apparently because they were led by UN human-rights chief Michelle Bachelet, who as president of Chile declined to openly criticize the regime’s turn to repression before she left that office last year.

Bachelet plainly understands that other leftists need to tell the truth about Maduro’s reign of blood, which has forced more than 4 million citizens to flee the country. Too bad so many American progressives who once sang the praises of the Venezuelan regime seem indifferent to its horrors now.

Maybe they should revolt.
Oh wait … haven’t they been disarmed?

And why I NEVER will be.

To Die is the same potential ending, but to be unable to physically defend yourself is most sad. The Left/Liberal groups( with an “S”) who as the article describes, championed the “real progress” being demonstrated in Venezuela as it should be with us. Careful for what you wish for.

I suspect the very rich fat-cats are already targeted by their own for the sake of plunder.
