    At the 5 minute mark, he showed a clip o Chavez getting on TV and taking control of a private company and firing executives to make a joke out of it. That is literally one of the most egregious examples of property rights violation by an arbitrary fiat and he thinks that it is funny. If that doesn't make you shiver, there is something seriously wrong with you and you ought to go look up this thing called "human rights" and "system of checks and balances".

    Socialism is like cocaine. A little feels good, but make no mistake, it's a hard drug. Once you get hooked, then you need more and more to stay level - all while destroying yourself and blaming everyone / everything other than the drug for causing the problems in your life. Maduro isn't the real problem, he's just the dealer. Socialism itself (the drug) is the real problem.

    I never said I supported Hillary, dumbfuck. I said that you tards would have no problem with the legitimacy of the case for the president having committed treason if it was Hillary instead of Trump, as you just proved. "hillary is allowed 20 felonies and Trump is not" The Equal protection clause? In the 14th amendment? The amendment your God Emperor called "questionable"? The one that explicitly sanctions the "anchor babies" you babies hate oh-so-much?

    Currency has no value. Currency crisis is not economic crisis. Yes the cost of a plantain today is more than the cost of a house 30 years ago but the value of a house is still greater than that of a plantain. Those who hold currency as security are dumb or poor.. Venezuela have food shortages which can be fixed. Venezuela is fine.

    Blatantly lying, Mister Oliver! He repeats mainstream media talking points and completely forgets that the US empire is waging an economic war against oil-rich Venezuela, supporting and funding opposition groups and through American Food corporations. Get some help here: Seems like the US do exactly what they blame Russia for: Interfere and intervene in other sovereign countries with democratically elected governments! Hands off Venezuela, USAID and US Government!

    Everything that is happening in Venezuela is entirely the result of Socialism. Central planning, public ownership, and collectivism did that, not "mismanagement". An ad hominem attack on the Right to defend Socialism is grotesquely dishonest.

  52. MrMollusk7

    MrMollusk7Vor 2 Tage

    Public ownership is not collectivization, which in no way describes why PDVSA took Venezuela down with it. If you stepped outside once in a while, you might realize that every government on the goddamn planet manages public holdings as an absolute necessity to establish something adults call "infastructure". How the fuck does collectivization relate to PDVSA? Did all the workers own their own oil rigs before PDVSA put them on government payroll? Or were they EMPLOYED by a publicly owned company? If you took of the fedora for a second you might be able to understand how bad management of public companies effect the country regardless of political ideology, instead of using your poor understanding of ideological terminology to feel smug about yourself.

  53. John Robie

    John RobieVor 2 Tage

    Before you overzealously run your mouth, you might want to look up what "public ownership" means, and then look up how Venezuela increasingly nationalized PDVSA. Like I said, what's happening in Venezuela is the entirely predictable outcome of Socialism. Maybe if the apologists took a little time away from their sanctimony to actually learn how this all works, we would have fewer countries imploding and people wouldn't be forced to eat their pets. But you know, free stuff is all that matters, eh Comrade?

  54. MrMollusk7

    MrMollusk7Vor 2 Tage

    "public ownership, and collectivism did that" Right, because their oil reserves were 100% managed by the rig workers and people. You absolute fucking moron.

    Some people say Empire Files does a good job debunking this video. How many of the people who hate John Oliver for condemning Venezuelan government are *actual* Venezuelans? How many of the people who support Empire Files debunking video are *actual* Venezuelans? For foreigners who hate this video, do you hate it because you have solid evidences to debunk the existence of Venezuela's crisis? Or do you hate it because you are a socialist who got butthurt when a comedian condemns a troubled country that happens to be socialist, not realising Oliver himself refused to blame it on socialism?
