Univision News Crew Detained in Venezuela for Asking the 'Wrong' Questions
We've long been warning you of socialism being a giant sh*tshow suckfest where individuals have zero rights. All along, lefty socialist sympathizers tell us "you're crazy man, socialism is sweet and loving and respects everyone's rights."
Tell that to this Univision crew who were detained in Venezuela for asking the "wrong" questions:
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos and five members of his team were detained and later released in Caracas, Venezuela by President Nicolas Maduro on Monday during an interview in which the embattled president"didn't like the questions" he was being asked, the network said.
Ramos, 60, was interviewing Maduro when the president "became upset with the line of questioning and ordered the seizure of the video and Univision equipment, including TV and phones, as well as the detention of the journalists," Univision reported.
Along with Ramos, the network confirmed journalists María Martínez, Claudia Rondón, Francisco Urreiztieta, Juan Carlos Guzmán, Martín Guzmán were also detained for two hours.
Ramos said Maduro cut the interview short when the anchor showed him footage of children picking through garbage in the street.

In authoritarian dictatorships, one misplaced question and it's off to the gulag. Where you can think about your "crimes" over a few years of hard labor. Therein lies the difference between living here and living there. I, for one, want no part of that socialist bullhickey.
