Oh, look. The Venezuelans want their guns back.
We pro-gun, pro-second amendment people are on the right side of history. Always have been, always will be. Our Founding Fathers deserve our eternal thanks for their sacrifices and foresight that lets us have gun safes full of weaponry and the ability and knowledge to use them.
And unfortunately, they are proven correct, time and time again. Regardless of how ignorant the left is on the subject and how much they try to belittle us into thinking we don’t need guns, the 2nd Amendment is outdated, and that only duck hunting carries the stamp of approval by politicians…
They’re wrong. Terribly.
“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan teacher of English now exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News. “The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”
I suppose the Venezuelans are getting tired of prostituting themselves for survival, eating rats and dogs, giving their children away in hopes someone else can care for them, and dying in the streets of starvation and disease.
Oh, and violent crime is at record highs. According to Human Rights Watch, worse than a war zone. (But on the same level as Chicago probably.)
Then there is the 200% inflation this year. Which is a real kick to the groin when your currency drops by 2/3rds of it’s value and pushes the number of people living below the poverty line to more than 90%.
And if that’s not bad enough, Polio is beginning to hit them hard.
Freaking, Polio. Because there is no medical care. There ain’t even Toilet Paper.
Now they wish they could do something about it while ‘President For Life’ Maduro eats $275 steaks, cooked by that mustached guy who dribbles salt off his forearm, and tells his citizens…er…subjects that it’s good for the country to go on a diet and that the average 24lbs lost per Venezuelan is a good thing.
Too bad. Six years ago they voluntarily gave up their firearms. (What few they had.)
So when Maduro is crushing dissidents, there ain’t shit-all most folks can do about it. I suppose that’s because it’s pretty hard to protest when the government uses live bullets instead of rubber ones and you’re so weak you can’t hit swing a baseball bat or throw a rock.
But remember this Venezuelan Badass?
The high-speed, low-drag, special forces police officer who stole a helicopter, flew it over the Supreme Court building, and strafed it with machine gun fire and grenades? All while flying the flag with 350 Libertad written on it? (That’s the article in their Constitution that gives the people the right to oppose the government.)
Later this guy raided a police department, and stole a couple dozen rifles. (That’s how disarmed they are. Come to America, and we got a dozen AR’s within a ten mile radius for most of the red states.)
Maduro’s goons tracked him down and killed him after a nine hour siege. With 500 men against 10… one of the ‘terrorists’ being a pregnant woman. During the Siege, he uploaded a video online, covered in blood, stating that they had surrendered but the government wouldn’t stop shooting.
They did, after they made an example out of him.
But that’s socialism. It ain’t free shit. It’s the extreme power of a few over the multitude of weak and defenseless who are at their mercy.
And sometimes it really sucks to be right and watch millions suffer because of the same foolish morons we are co-habituating with in America. The same brainless lemmings who flock to ‘Democratic Socialists’ like Bernie Sanders and ‘Perpetually Stupid’ Ocasio-Cortez in hopes of free health care, forgiven student loans, a minimum living wage, no guns, and no Electoral College or Republicans.
Buy guns. Vote for Freedom. Or eat Dog Meat.
