I have no doubt that someone wrote this line for him, but this is probably my favorite thing PDT has ever said.
“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented.”
Anyone care to dispute that?
There was a time when Sen. Bernie Sanders, along with Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky, and Jesse Jackson all praised Venezuela for diminishing income inequality and instituting Government-provided health care.
People who are truly “woke” understand that the objective of socialism is not to raise the living standards of the poor, or even to equitably redistribute wealth. The objective of socialism is to concentrate and expand Government power within the a self-selected political class. In this respect, socialism as practiced by Venezuela, Cuba, Zimbabwe, North Korea, Detroit, Chicago, and California is succeeding exactly as planned.
It is my understanding that the comment was not well received by the “global elites.”
Speaking of PDT, now that it has been revealed that the Obama administration really was wiretapping the Trump campaign, I have noticed the Democrat Media Complex spin has gone from “Trump is insane to accuse Obama of wiretapping him” to “The fact that Obama was wiretapping Trump proves that TrumpRussia is a real scandal” without stopping for breath.
