Socialists torture Venezuelan navy captain to death. Where’s Bernie, Omar, and Ocasio-Cortez?

American Thinker:

After leftists such as Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar made a big to-do about not meaning Venezuela’s failed socialism as the kind of socialism they’d like to impose on America, and worse still, defending the regime as a mere victim of U.S. sanctions, we now have some naked torture and human-rights violations coming from the regime that simply can’t be explained away.

According to the New York Times:

CARACAS — A Venezuelan Navy captain accused by the government of plotting a rebellion has died in custody a week after his arrest, underlining President Nicolás Maduro’s increasingly ferocious repression campaign amid a spiraling economic crisis.

The captain, Rafael Acosta, is the first of more than 100 active and retired Venezuelan officers jailed by the government on treason charges to die in custody after allegations of torture.

A military judge told Captain Acosta’s legal team on Saturday that the officer had died in a military hospital the previous night, said his lawyer, Alonso Medina Roa. Captain Acosta was detained on June 21 and charged with treason and conspiring to rebel. He denied the charges.

Mr. Medina Roa said the captain had been detained in good health but was in a wheelchair when he was brought into a courthouse on Friday. The lawyer said his client was struggling to speak or move, showed visible signs of beatings, and kept repeating the word “help” to his legal team.

That’s a death-squad regime, the kind that people such as Omar made a huge brouhaha about when a comparable murder occurred from Saudi Arabia. Her twitter feed about this? Dead silence. read more

  1. …….Where’s Bernie, Omar, and Ocasio-Cortez?…….

    They’re busy behind the scenes making socialism look prim and proper.

    It’s amazing what sick minds can do when their supporters are brain dead and money hungry.

  2. All collectivist states are fundamentally dependent on violence and the use of force. All of them.

    All collectivist states are fundamentally intolerant of dissent. All of them.

    All collectivist states are the implacable enemies of individualism. All of them.

    Any questions?

  3. The charge of alleged torture has been made by a Juan Guaido supporter and coup/assassination conspirator. Would coup plotters lie? They are still working to overthrow Maduro with the backing of the US government under Trump. The NYT is a cohort of the coup criminals in both countries. What if there were a planned assassination coup against Trump? Would the coup plotters be arrested and tortured? No!! Because they own the government and won’t prosecute themselves.

    Venezuelan Navy Captain Dies in State Custody, Maduro Orders Investigation
    Acosta had been linked to an alleged coup plot in which he discussed assassinating President Nicolas Maduro.

    “However, the opposition has disputed the official account, claiming that the navy officer died as a result of toture.

    Venezuelan Attorney Tamara Suju, who serves as self-proclaimed “Interim President” Juan Guaido’s envoy to the Czech Republic, took to Twitter, alleging that Acosta “arrived at court in a wheelchair, presenting grave signs of torture.” Her comments were echoed in a statement by Guaido’s office calling for an “independent international forensics team” to investigate the death.”

    Caracas, June 27, 2019 (venezuelanalysis.com) – The Venezuelan government has reportedly dismantled a plan to stage a violent putsch in recent days.

    Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez revealed on Wednesday that a large scale plan was set to be executed on June 23 or 24. The operation allegedly included the assassination of President Nicolas Maduro, National Constituent Assembly President Diosdado Cabello, and other high-ranking officials.

    Maduro condemned the latest plot, accusing the opposition of looking to seize power through a “bloodbath.”

    “They talked about a killing spree that could last two or three days,” Maduro said during a televised event. “How can a better country emerge from all that death?” he asked.

  4. Ilhan doesn’t want socialism, she wants shari’a. Socialism is simply the Trojan horse, the worst thing she can do to the United States to weaken and divide it, so it becomes a ripe fig for Mohammad’s plucking.

    …Always watch what Muslums support, who they vote for. TRUE Muslims know the Koran says a!!ah picks your caliph and is by design anti-democratic, so the ONLY people Muslims will vote for are the ones that will do us the most harm, to use our system AGAINST us.

    …as Mohammad commands…

  5. The left (media included) can’t report on this slaughter because to do so will throw their credibility as regards to socialism into the crapper. This Maduro fuck could start throwing babies into wood chippers on the government sponsored TV channel and the rest of the world would never know about it.

    I understand about not getting involved but hell, a couple of drones hitting the palace then putting a bounty of a KFC Family Dinner on the head of every Cuban soldier ought to start the ball rolling. Don’t know what kind of medieval government they’d end up with but it has to be better then this.

  6. They envy the torturers, and have us in mind for the same, in their wet dreams of fascist power.

  8. Another Cortezism:
    “In my new apartment in DC I took the batteries out of the carbon monoxide alarm because the loud beeping was giving me a headache and making me feel weak and dizzy, and I couldn’t sleep. And besides, we didn’t have them things in The Bronx.”
    Ridicule is the best defense against liberalism.
