What Desperate Venezuelans are Being Forced to do With Rotten Meat is Exactly Why Socialism is Horrible

Published

on

Things are getting really, really bad in the socialist nation of Venezuela, so much so that citizens in the country have been reduced to eating rotten meat.

Yeah, that whole “share the wealth” thing doesn’t seem to be working out too well for these folks now, does it? If only liberals could get it through their heads that no matter how many different ways you try it, socialism ends the exact same way.

The reason so much of the meat has gone rotten in the country is because refrigeration units have been shut down due to rolling blackouts. But that’s not the only reason.

Another reason for the rotten meat is that runaway inflation has made the currency nearly worthless. Venezuelans are unable to buy fresh meat, and have to settle for eating rotten meat.

“Of course, they eat the meat — thanks to Maduro,” said butcher Johel Prieto. “The food of the poor is rotten food.”

Prieto told The Associated Press that he ground up a rotten side of beef and mixed it with fresh meat in order to mask the spoilage.

The Venezuelan government has tried to slow its inflation woes by demonetizing the money, the Bolivar, and increasing taxes. According to the International Monetary Fund, inflation could climb to a staggering 1 million percent by year’s end.

The government has also revoked a benefit they were previously offering to citizens — lower gas prices — unless they now register for a state “fatherland” identification card.

This is absolutely horrifying in every conceivable way. There’s no other way to fix this than for Venezuela to abandon socialism and adopt a free market system. How they would do this and what it would look like to make such a drastic transition is up for debate.

If something isn’t done soon, lots of people are going to get sick and die from eating this rotten meat.

This, kids, is the fruit of big government. And the left wonders why so many folks don’t want it?

This may or not come as shocking to some people. Like Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib, freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar often finds herself on the wrong side of the issue. Here’s just the latest example.

To some, a godsend. To others, a disgrace. What cannot go overlooked, however, is that Obama lied to the American people about the strength of radical Islam while burying 470,000 documents related to the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound. Why? In order to win re-election in 2012. From Western Journal: In a detailed exposé in The Weekly Standard, journalist and author Stephen F. Hayes showed that Obama buried a staggering number of documents from Osama bin Laden’s compound, and essentially lied to the American people about the real status of Al Qaeda in order to win votes. […] A key piece of Obama’s re-election was the elimination of bin Laden and the claim…

FACEPALM: Ocasio-Cortez Repeatedly Refuses to Condemn Terror Attack At ICE Facility (Watch)

Just another day in the life…

AOC and her “squad,” which consists are far-left radicals like Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, and Ilhan Omar, are the gift that keeps on giving. They are virtually gift wrapping the 2020 election to President Trump. When pressed about the domestic terror attack by an Antifa activist at an ICE detention facility in Washington this past weekend, AOC would not condemn the man’s actions. Because that’s where liberalism is, nowadays. From Daily Wire: The attacker repeatedly called the facilities “concentration camps” in a manifesto that was obtained by the local media outlet. The media has repeatedly tried to tie manifestos of white nationalist terrorists to President Donald Trump, suggesting that he was somehow responsible for attacks on a synagogue and on a mosque. The media has not held Ocaiso-Cortez to the same standard, even though she single-handedly interjected the “concentration camp” rhetoric into U.S. politics. […] Ocasio-Cortez was asked about her rhetoric and whether she would condemn the attack. Ocasio-Cortez refused to answer the question.
