Venezuela Now Routinely Using Death Squads to Kill Political Enemies

Dictatorship

Remember folks, this is where socialism always ends up:

Venezuelan security forces are sending death squads to murder young men and stage the scenes to make it look like the victims resisted arrest, the United Nations said in a report issued by its human rights chief on Thursday.

Government figures showed that deaths ascribed to criminals resisting arrest numbered 5,287 last year and 1,569 by May 19 this year. The U.N. report said many of them appeared to be extrajudicial executions.

Families of 20 men had described how masked men dressed in black from Venezuela’s Special Action Forces (FAES) had arrived in black pickups without license plates. In the accounts, the death squads broke into houses, took belongings and assaulted women and girls, sometimes stripping them naked.

The report said the killings were part of a strategy by the government of President Nicolas Maduro aimed at “neutralizing, repressing and criminalizing political opponents and people critical of the government”, which accelerated since 2016.

I also really like pictures of gas stations and claim full responsibility for the silly gas station motif. I'm presently trapped behind enemy lines in a blue state with no hope of escape! The ride never ends.

  1. This is always what happens under Socialism……….we should send all college students who do not think we are a great country over to spend one month in Venezuela and take notes of what is going on there………..that should be a great project and hopefully they would learn how great the USA truly is…….if they get an opportunity to return, then I doubt they would ever spread the BS they are learning in college.
