The nazis called themselves socialists, hated capitalism, and have a party platform with 4 times as many ideas that would appeal to the modern left over the right.
Nazi has become the new favorite smear of the left, and anyone who doesn’t agree with every plank of the progressive wing of the democrat party is rapidly getting the label. Surely, there are real nazis out there, but their numbers and influence are so insignificant that to fear them is simply laughable. No, we’re not talking about the few skinhead lunatics with swastikas tattoos and SS memorabilia who blame “the Jews” and minorities for all of their problems, but normal people who simply don’t subscribe to the madness that is the platform of the modern democratic party. And, as if giving everyone you disagree with a Nazi label isn’t bad enough, an ever-growing number of leftists find it acceptable to assault anyone they label a nazi.
The rationale seems to be that the left are obviously as far from the nazis as a political movement can be; therefore, the rest of us must be “literally nazis” who dream of stuffing Jews in ovens as we goose-step around our split-level houses in the suburbs.
The Venezuelan Government will force citizens to leave their jobs and work on farms for up to 60 days at a time. The stated reason for this measure is to address food shortages in the socialist utopia.
Amnesty International responded by saying ” Venezuela’s new system is equal to forced labor. We’ve gone back 162 years, restoring slavery”.
Luckily we live in the United States of America and nothing like that could happen here. OR COULD IT?

In Hugo Chávez’s socialist utopia of Venezuela, the people are supposed to be equal in both opportunities and outcome. Of course, as anyone who understands socialism in action knows, the connected are more equal than others. The government awards them special privileges and subsidies that the average citizen has no access to. Take María Gabriela Chávez for instance. Daughter of the late Hugo Chavez, she has amassed a fortune of $4,200,000,000 while the citizens of Venezuela become poorer and poorer.
The billions in María Gabriela Chávez’s bank accounts are not some anomaly of “poorly implemented” socialism, but exactly what absolute power provides.
