Venezuela Crushes Attempted Rebellion

Venezuela, the socialist paradise admired by Democrats and Hollywood – but I repeat myself – crushed an attempted coup Sunday as a group of soldiers attacked a Paramacay base in Valencia.

Venezuelan authorities suppressed a small rebellion at a military base Sunday, arresting seven men who they say participated in a “terrorist attack” against the government of unpopular leftist President Nicolas Maduro.

A video circulated on social media showing a group of men in military uniform announcing an uprising in the wake of the creation of a pro-government legislative superbody on Friday, which was widely condemned as a power grab.

Hundreds took to the streets in Valencia to support the uprising, said resident Carolina Herrera, who like other witnesses reported shots through the night. But hooded protesters had been largely dispelled with tear gas by midday on Sunday, and the rest of the South American country of 30 million appeared to be calm.

Maduro sees himself as the next iron man of Venezuela, and the country is on the verge of civil war. Somewhere on a Hawaiian beach, Barack Obama is shedding a tear.

  1. It’s hard to believe that at one time Venezuela was the fourth wealthiest nation per capita. Oh, how far they have fallen. Americans would be wise to take note of this as a cautionary tale, they won’t, but they should.

  2. The silence from Hollywood and the rest of the left is deafening. 16 years ago they were always talking up Chavez and his “worker’s paradise”. Now crickets and tumbleweeds. And of course none of it has anything to do with them aiding and abetting those two dirt bags! Fracking iceholes!! : (
