How well is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialism working out in socialist Venezuela?

Well, it looks like young people are getting more and more exciting about the prospect of voting in socialism. We have a $22 trillion debt, we’re running $1 trillion plus deficits, and now’s the time for the government to take over the economy and give everybody free everything!!! Well, trouble is, that’s actually been tried… in Venezuela.

The Daily Wire reports:

Once considered the wealthiest country in Latin America, Venezuela has become a socialist hellhole where girls as young as 14 are selling their bodies in exchange for a few bucks a “service” and heterosexual men are prostituting themselves out on the gay sex market. These desperate souls are trying to escape the economic policies advocated here in United States by the Left’s increasingly mainstream Bernie Sanders/Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wing.

A Fox News report from journalist Hollie McKay exposed the socialism-induced horror show on the trail from Venezuela to neighboring Colombia. “Thousands upon thousands of Venezuelans pour into Colombia over the crowd cross-country bridge, their faces gaunt, carrying little more than a backpack. Rail-thin women cradle their tiny babies, and beg along the trash-strewn gutters. Teens hawk everything from cigarettes to sweets and water for small change,” McKay reports.

Malnourished girls and women are selling anything they can, including their bodies, breast milk, and hair, to survive, reports McKay. Females as young as 14 are receiving a reported seven dollars on average “per service”; a woman’s hair might be sold in exchange for a measly $10-30.

And as desperate Venezuelans hand over their papers and identification to “pimp types,” sex trafficking has become the norm. Men are selling themselves, too: straight men, some being trafficked, are performing gay sex acts in exchange for money.

Well, is it really that bad to let strangers with STDs rape you in exchange for food? That sounds like a sex-positive socialist paradise to me!

But wait! There’s more socialist paradise:

Last year, The Daily Beast reported that starving Venezuelans had resorted to killing pets and zoo animals for food while dictator Nicolas Maduro and his fellow chubby elites maintained access to everything they need. “One morning in August at the metropolitan zoo in the torrid city of Maracaibo, workers were shocked to find the bones of a buffalo and some wild pigs inside their cages with clear signs of mutilation. Thieves allegedly stole the meat to eat what they could and sell the rest on the local market,” said the report.

Back in Venezuela, suicide is up, particularly with children and teens, health care is basically nonexistent since an estimated 55% of the nation’s medical professionals have fled the country, and at least 70% of the population are estimated to be suffering from acute malnutrition and starvation.

Wow, talk about animal rights. They’re so far ahead of us that they stopped keeping animals in cages! Yay, animal rights. And think of how good all these suicides are for the overpopulation problem? Venezuela has global warming on the run. After all, dead people can’t drive cars and emit greenhouse gasses. Everything is awesome when socialists rule. We should definitely elect people who want us to be like Venezuela. And Cuba. And North Korea.

  1. Since I’m not a misogynist and don’t want women to be forced into sex slavery to sell their bodies for food or face starvation…I don’t support socialism.

    Socialists are misogynists.

    Answer: Not well at all, but she can avoid that reality because she’s far away from the consequences of her policies.

    This is standard leftist behavior. R selected opportunism.

    Socialism: because you would resent being robbed by your neighbour but more than happy to get the government to do it for you without a twinge of conscience.

  3. “A useful idiot is someone who supports one side of an ideological debate, but who is manipulated and held in contempt by the leaders of their faction or is unaware of the ultimate agenda driving the ideology to which they subscribe.”

    Hence why Cortez doesn’t want to debate her beliefs. She wants to maintain her presuppositions that socialism will work. Usually, what happens. as with a person like Cortez is they will suffer a hard case of cognitive dissonance or, will be taken down the road to Reductio ad Absurdum town. So, to avoid the obvious, she never debates her beliefs.

    1. I just saw an article today where she opposed PayGo rules in the House, because she says it’s stupid to have to explain how your going to pay for government spending. This is a retarded bartender who has failed at life being elected because she’s a young minority woman with zero education, qualifications or achievements in life.

      1. I believe this girl is in for a rude awakening as the year progresses. She will continue to whine and cry about those that oppose her and her pathetic “Green Deal.” In fact, we are in for a treat as she continues to open her mouth and spew nonsense all the while complaining like a model snowflake that she is so opposed. She is so out of her league and she will realize that she missed one vital piece of wisdom…Count the cost. (That last line was wishful thinking on my part.) But since she lacks any real economics education, counting the cost is above her pay grade. She should at least have read Basic Economics by yours and my favorite economist Thomas Sowell. I wish he was around now, would like to hear what he would have to say about her. I suppose any putz can be elected nowadays. Maybe I will audit a political science class and run for office.

        1. Medicare for all (single payer) costs 32 trillion. I had a separate blog post on her response when ask how she intended to pay for it. You could literally get the same answer from a 6-year-old child. That’s who just got elected to the House of Representatives.


  4. Whenever people say “Socialism doesn’t work”, I respond “works for who?”. Socialists have a different concept of “works”.

    In terms of creating liberty and economic opportunities for the most number of people it is a miserable failure.

    But in terms of empowering and enriching a tiny ruling class while keeping the masses docile and living at subsistence levels, it works just fine.
