Leftist dogma has it that they and they alone speak for ‘the people’ in the struggle against freedom and the private sector advancing society. They also are the authority on how much one is to keep of their earnings. After all, their taking of someone other people’s money is perfectly acceptable on their moral compass, but one keeping it is ‘greedy’.
But when it comes to defending their collective faith in Socialist ideals dogma goes by the wayside. Case in point this urgent announcement: Emergency Days of Action to STOP U.S. INTERVENTION IN VENEZUELA
“Make no mistake; what has been happening for the last two months in Venezuela is a counterrevolution by the most reactionary forces of the opposition to President Nicolás Maduro’s government.”
“The corporate media – the voice of the Pentagon and White House – has set up an international campaign of blatant lies that try to present the terrorist actions of the fascist hoards [sic] as repression from the Revolutionary Government”
This is from the ‘International Action Center’ an organization of Marxists desperately trying to hold onto the failed concepts of their archaic ideology.
Apparently they take little issue with the GNB and PNB shooting protestors in the streets, and the arrests and oppression of thousands. Or that the people are having to eat garbage and dying in hospital under the tender mercies of “MaduroCare”.
And they take little notice that the regime is actively going after those who would report on the carnage on the streets. They have little concern over the mounting death toll of 68 days of protests against Socialist oppression. In point of fact, they hardly mention these events and instead made up their own narrative to explain what is taking place.
No, they are more concerned about maintaining the crumbling facade that is the immoral and archaic evil that is socialism no matter the cost in human lives.
Those having to live this horror have their own commentary about the ‘help’ offered to their oppressors in the Caracas Chronicles: The Jurassic Left Doubles down on Maduro
Millenarian “Leftists” aren’t interested in the least in the real Venezuela or in the wishes of its real people. They only want to protect their “vanguard” in power so they can keep alive the illusion that “Socialism” is the future; that the “Revolution” is inevitable and that some idealized abstraction of “The People” — which has absolutely nothing in common with the actual people you meet if you actually go to Venezuela — will win in the end.
What’s at stake here isn’t what happens to Venezuelans. What matters to them is the integrity of their doctrinal system, of its symbols and shibboleths. Preserving this, looking out for its integrity matters to these guys. Whether Venezuelans eat or starve? They couldn’t care less.
Consider that the national socialist left is taking a major risk here showing their blood soaked cards in defending their Marxist faith. They are siding with an oppressive regime against those who they purport to champion. They are clearly more concerned about the fate of their archaic ideology that what really happens to the people under the hobnailed boot of Maduro.
