America is under siege right now.
It’s especially troubling because the enemy is attacking from within.
And one country gave a chilling warning about what’s happening in America.
The radical left in America has gone completely haywire.
They are using the tragic murder of George Floyd to push their radical agenda on the rest of America.
What started with peaceful protests almost instantly escalated into violence.
But the bigger problem America faces is the ideology that undergirds radical groups like Antifa.
The communists that infiltrated the United States never gave up on their dream even after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
They’ve hidden in plain sight in universities for decades and have been training generations of Marxists now cropping up in all walks of American life.
But one woman from Venezuela gave a chilling warning about what could come next.
“Statutes came down, [Hugo] Chavez didn’t want that history this way. And then he changed the street names, then came the [school] curriculum. And then some movies couldn’t be shown on TV channels, and so on and so forth,” she said.
Venezuela should be a stern warning to Americans.
As the woman points out, she never thought it could happen in her country, but it did.
Venezuela was one of the richest countries in South America with abundant oil reserves and other natural resources. Today, Venezuela is the poorest country in South America where items like toilet paper and hygiene products have to be sold on the black market.
Leftist celebrities in America praised Hugo Chavez when he first began his socialist takeover of the country.
Hollywood actors like Sean Penn, Danny Glover, and Susan Sarandon fawned over Chavez as a revolutionary.
But as is the case with all socialist governments, they always collapse over time because eventually there’s no more money to steal.
Companies leave the country (before they’re barred from doing so) because they don’t want their property seized, and wealth creators lose incentive.
Also, the government is terrible at determining prices based on supply and demand, so that creates huge inefficiencies and shortages.
Worst of all, the people in charge have to use an unbelievable amount of force in order to control the population.
That’s why socialism is inherently authoritarian no matter how often leftists claim it’s “peaceful” and “democratic.”
This socialist experiment has been tried many times and always ends up the same.
As Venezuela proved, a country can slip away quickly if freedoms aren’t defended every single day.
