Debbie D’Souza is a native-born Venezuelan, who witnessed the destruction of her country under tyrants Hugo Chávez and his successor, Nicolás Maduro. She and her fellow Venezuelan expatriates, now living in America, are experiencing a creepy sense of déjà vu. What led Venezuela down the road of poverty and oppression, they say, is happening now in the United States.
Venezuela was demolished because of voter fraud. Back when the Venezuelan opposition led a recall vote on Chávez, the numbers ran 60-40% in favor of removing him from office. When the vote came in, mysteriously, that number reversed, and Chávez figured he would be dictator for life.
After Chávez died in office in 2013, his successor used the same tactics. Venezuelans who left know fraud when they see it. They probably weren’t overly surprised when leftwing Biden supporters employed similar tactics to steal the election from Donald Trump.
Another astonishing parallel is the current shortage of baby formula in the United States. Venezuela experienced the same problem in 2010. The shelves were bare. What did the government do? They embarked on a propaganda campaign to promote breast-feeding as a better alternative to baby formula.
“Just wait,” warns Debbie, “The Biden Administration is going to issue a statement that breast-feeding is the best thing for babies.” Debbie sees striking parallels between the left in Venezuela and in the United States. “It’s almost as if they drink out of the same cup!”
Her bottom line? America is on a bad road, and that road has already been traveled by Venezuelan socialism, which has spread the misery evenly. She points to contemporary American examples by referring to California as “Calizuela.”
