Let’s Get This Straight

So what we have here is:

  • A bunch of shrill, upper-middle-class, white, college-miseducated “feminists”, duking it out with…
  • People who actually survived, or have relatives who are trying to survive, the socialism-driven implosion of what was once a prosperous nation.

Yep, that’s what we have:

Liberal activists from the anti-war group Code Pink are refusing to leave the abandoned Venezuelan embassy in Washington, vowing to protect the building from a “hostile takeover” as the U.S. State Department labels them “trespassers” and calls on them to leave.
About 50 pro-regime activists have been living inside the building for several weeks in support of embattled socialist President Nicolas Maduro. In recent days, they’ve clashed outside the embassy with supporters of opposition leader Juan Guaido, who has called for a military uprising in Venezuela and has the support of the Trump administration.

Can there be a better example of Urban Progressive Privilege than people like Media Benjamin progsplaining actual Venezuelans?

It’s sort of the logical extension of former MN State Senator Larry Pogemiller saying on the record that he didn’t believe people knew how to spend their money better than government does.

Tax money, freedom, survival – all pretty much the same, isn’t it?

  1. I just had to look up Medea Benjamin. Here are the highlights, courtesy of her Wikipedia page

    “According to the Capital Research Center, Benjamin received millions of dollars from trust funds.[6]”

    “joined the Students for a Democratic Society.[7]”

    “From 1979 to 1983, Benjamin lived and worked in Cuba, and married the coach of the Cuban national basketball team”

    “She worked for a communist newspaper, initially describing the nation as “heaven”. However, after writing a piece about censorship in Cuba, Benjamin was deported.[7]

  2. Oh the irony! Gets booted from Cuba for publicizing their censorship, yet stays a Democrat. You can’t make this stuff up!
