'Code Pink' Activists Occupy Venezuelan Embassy, Defend Socialist Maduro
You're no doubt familiar with the situation going on in Venezuela at the moment. The Venezuelan peeps are tired of feasting on roasted house cat while their socialist douchenugget of a leader gets to live it up with Salt Bae. So, a group of people are pushing back.
You'd think lining up against the guy starving and machine gunning his people to death would be a no-brainer. Alas, lefty groups like Code Pink are still defending Maduro:
Code Pink faced backlash Thursday and Friday as the activist group holed up in the Venezuelan embassy in Washington, D.C., claiming to hold the territory for dictator Nicolas Maduro.
The U.S. State Department ordered Venezuelan diplomats representing the Maduro regime to return to Venezuela, recognizing opposition leader Juan Guaido as the legitimate leader of the Venezuelan people — and Code Pink activists took over the vacated building, saying that they had permission from the “legitimate president” to stay there.
Yep, these peeps are actually standing behind Maduro's dictating ass. Even as he's using his tanks to pull a Death Race 2000 on his own people.
Some of these just "progressives" can't seem to take a hint. To them, the only bad guys are those heartless Republicans who want people to be poor and starve to death. The authoritarion butt dumpling who actively starves his peeps and keeps them in the poor house is a-okay though.
Lefties siding with dictators ought to tell you what they want for the U-S-of-A. Hint: it's not good. Entrusting the goverment with every aspect of your life almost always ends up leading to Venezuela. Yet the left refuses to learn from these mistakes, insisting "it'll work next time." Yeah, it won't.
While we're talking Venezuela:
