Victims of Socialism in Venezuela Warn U.S.: 'Don't Fall for It,' 'People are Eating from Trash Bags' | CNSNews
Victims of Venezuelan socialism who have come to America recently attended a Venezuela Freedom Rally in Washington, D.C., where Campus Reform asked them for their message to Americans who support socialism.
“Bernie Sanders is your enemy. Do not ever, ever get involved with this individual or any of the other socialists,” one man who escaped Venezuelan socialism warned. “People are eating from trash bags in the streets,” one woman said. “In Venezuela, there is no food, no medicine, education. No, nothing, nothing,” another woman added.
Others warned Americans not to fall for socialism’s false promises, and to beware its gradual usurpation of citizens’ freedoms:
I wish American young persons would listen to Venezuelan refugees about socialism. Socialism began there with a charismatic figure and lofty promises, including social justice for all. It ended up, well, with people fighting over scraps from trash bags. You shouldn't contrast this with crony capitalism, what we have now in the US. Resist the cronies, not capitalism.
