Culture Wars/Current Controversies
They Say Scandinavia But They Mean Venezuela
Whenever I am reflecting on how many total idiots can be found on the Left, in order to maintain a sense of balance, I find it helpful to watch a Prager U video in order to be reminded of the vast numbers of complete morons on the Right. In this one, Debbie D’Souza, wife of career grifter and neocon stooge Dinesh D’Souza, spins the usual FAUX News line about how “Bernie and AOC want to make America into Venezuela.” As if the plutocrats and technocrats who control the Democrapic Party view these recycled New Dealers/McGovernites on the “left” end of their party as anything other bothersome interlopers. As if “wokeness” is somehow not a part of the ruling class ideology.
What do Democratic Socialists like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want America to look like? They say they want America to emulate Scandinavian countries like Denmark and Sweden. But do their proposed policies reflect that? Or do they point down a darker path? Debbie D’Souza, a native Venezuelan and political commentator, investigates.
