Socialism yeah! Feel the Bern!

Funny how Socialism tells people they'll take from the rich and give to the little people, yet starving citizens are a common scene among Socialist countries.

I guess once Socialism takes from businesses and the wealthy they seem to always conveniently forget to give that money to the poor.

That part isn't talked about much when discussing Socialism.

Socialism means taking from every worker so that the public servants can line their pockets and fill their bank accounts with money. To keep the mob under control, they give them chicken feed.

Let's hear it from the peanut gallery!

UPDATE:

Venezuelans so hungry dey eatin' zoo animals...

Police believe thieves steal Venezuela zoo animals to eat them
August 16, 2017 - Venezuela authorities are investigating the theft of animals from a zoo in western state of Zulia that were likely snatched to be eaten, a further sign of hunger in a country struggling with chronic food shortages.
Quote:
A police official said two collared peccaries, which are similar in appearance to boars, were stolen over the weekend from the Zulia Metropolitan Zoological Park in the sweltering city of Maracaibo near the Colombian border. "What we presume is that they (were taken) with the intention of eating them," Luis Morales, an official for the Zulia division of the National Police, told reporters on Tuesday. The chaotic collapse of the country's socialist economic model has created chronic food shortages that have fueled malnutrition and left millions seeking food anywhere they can find it, including in trash cans and dumpsters.

President Nicolas Maduro blames food shortages on opposition protests that have blocked streets and highways and a broader "economic war" led by adversaries with the help of Washington. But zoo head Leonardo Nunez said a wave of thefts that in recent weeks had affected 10 species including a buffalo, which he said was cut into pieces, was orchestrated by "drug dealers" seeking to sell the animals. "They take everything here! The animals weren't stolen to be eaten," Nunez said in an interview on Wednesday.

Mauricio Castillo, a former zoo director, said thieves had made off with two tapirs, a jungle animal that is also similar to a pig that is described as vulnerable to extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Shortages have also left zoos without sufficient food to feed animals, with some 50 animals starving to death last year at a Caracas zoos, according to a union leader. The government denied the animals had starved, insisting they had been treated "like family."

Socialism proves to be a failure in Venezuela...

Venezuela's Problem Is That 'Socialism Has Been Faithfully Implemented' There
September 19, 2017 | During his speech at the United Nations on Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump condemned the authoritarian, socialist regime of Venezuela, emphasizing that the South American nation's problem "is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented."
Quote:
Trump added that wherever socialism or communism is implemented, such as the former Soviet Union, Cuba, and Venezuela, it leads to political repression, executions, "anguish" and "failure." "We call for the full restoration of democracy and political freedoms in Venezuela," said President Trump. "The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented," he said. "From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure." "Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems," said the president.

Preceding those comments, Trump said of Venezuela: "We have also imposed tough, calibrated sanctions on the socialist Maduro regime in Venezuela, which has brought a once thriving nation to the brink of total collapse. "The socialist dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro has inflicted terrible pain and suffering on the good people of that country. This corrupt regime destroyed a prosperous nation by imposing a failed ideology that has produced poverty and misery everywhere it has been tried. To make matters worse, Maduro has defied his own people, stealing power from their elected representatives to preserve his disastrous rule.


Venezuela's socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro, left, and former Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

"The Venezuelan people are starving and their country is collapsing. Their democratic institutions are being destroyed. This situation is completely unacceptable and we cannot stand by and watch. "As a responsible neighbor and friend, we and all others have a goal. That goal is to help them regain their freedom, recover their country, and restore their democracy. I would like to thank leaders in this room for condemning the regime and providing vital support to the Venezuelan people.

"The United States has taken important steps to hold the regime accountable. We are prepared to take further action if the government of Venezuela persists on its path to impose authoritarian rule on the Venezuelan people. "We are fortunate to have incredibly strong and healthy trade relationships with many of the Latin American countries gathered here today. Our economic bond forms a critical foundation for advancing peace and prosperity for all of our people and all of our neighbors. "I ask every country represented here today to be prepared to do more to address this very real crisis."

Everyone who isn't stupid ought to recognize the failure of socialism and the wisdom of Trump's description of Venezuela. Mob rule like we are seeing emerge here courtesy of violent Leftists like Antifa and the Bernie Bros is what catapulted the socialists to power in Venezuela.

I suspect Antifa's goal is to establish a socialist government here. And somebody said it: Antifa means Anti First Amendment; not "antifascism".
