Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Stir not murky waters, when you don’t know the depth, nor creatures that dwell beneath the surface.” ~ Bryan Davis
Last Friday in the City of Maracaibo, Venezuela (Venezuela’s second-largest metro area), during a protracted, nationwide, compulsory power-cut, rioting broke out!
The “permanent underclass,” so carefully created and expanded by Maduro’s socialist government (much as Democrats do in this country), predictably spiraled out of control. In Venezuela, government-ordered power-cuts are nothing new, but this one was nationwide and lasted nearly a week, longer in many places.
On day-five, scattered rioting broke-out, and it quickly descended into a generalized crescendo of destruction. Described as, “… an orgy of violence and wanton destruction,” thousands of semi-organized rioters looted and vandalized much of the private-sector infrastructure of the city.
Destruction and theft of private property was widespread, frenzied, thorough, and barbarous.
Supermarkets were stripped of inventory, then destroyed. Office buildings, hotels, businesses, and private residences alike were broken into and ransacked. Everything of value was stolen or ruined, including computers, furniture, televisions, appliances, fixtures, plumbing, cables, fittings. Even carpeting was ripped-up and carried-off.
In the city, food and clean water are currently very scarce.
All this is taking place in an oil-rich nation that once prospered, until socialists took over, and did what socialists always do!
What happened is not just “vandalism.” It’s terrorism, encouraged and facilitated by leftist politicians.
Friday’s destructive rioting in Maracaibo, like brutal and currently out-of-control Islamic “rape-gangs” in the UK, is largely unreported in the liberal Western media because less-than-honest liberals desperately try to pretend it is not happening.
The creation and expansion of a permanent underclass lies at the heart of the socialist mantra.
Far from helping the poor, leftists strive to keep them poor, perpetually unproductive, growing, and constantly stirred-up, so they can be used to “punish” sectors of society that refuse to support the leftist agenda.
What we currently see happening in Maracaibo could easily break-out in any number of rotting American cities.
As with Maracaibo, it won’t be an “accident!”
“We are in the process of creating what deserves to be called ‘The Idiot Culture.’
Not an idiot sub-culture, which every society has bubbling beneath the surface, and which can provide harmless
fun; but the culture itself.
For the first time, the weird and the stupid and the coarse are becoming our cultural norm, even our cultural ideal.” ~ Carl Bernstein
