Nicolás Maduro Guerra “threatened to ‘take the White House’ with guns,” Politico reports.  

Yeah good luck scumbag.

Nicolás Maduro Guerra, the son of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, has threatened to “take the White House” with guns if President Donald Trump followed through with a military intervention in the country, a possibility he said he would not rule out on Friday.

“If the U.S. soils the homeland, the rifles would come to New York and take the White House,” Maduro Guerra said according to reports from Venezuelan media.

Guerra’s threats were in response to President Trump saying he would not rule out the U.S. pursuing “a military option” against Venezuela.

“We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary,” Trump told reporters at his New Jersey golf club on Friday.

PoliZette has more: 

“We have many options for Venezuela. And by the way, I am not going to rule out a military option,” Trump had said, noting that Venezuela is “our neighbor.” “You know, we are all over the world and we have troops all over the world in places that are very, very far away. Venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering, and they are dying. We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary.”

More than 120 people have died during the protests that wracked Venezuelan cities since April alone, and the United Nations’ human rights office decried the regime’s oppression and use of excessive force. Trump addressed the regime’s violations earlier in August, saying in a statement that the U.S. “condemns the actions of the Maduro dictatorship” and the regime’s decision to imprison political opponents illegally.

Speaking to reporters from his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., after meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, Trump said he has “many options” for Venezuela, “including a possible military operation, if necessary.”

The White House later condemned the Maduro regime for its human rights abuses in a statement released late Friday, saying the Venezuelan leader had “refused to heed” the White House’s calls for the country to “hold free and fair elections” and instead “chosen the path of dictatorship.”

Why is Venezuela so divided? According to BBC News:

Venezuela is split into Chavistas, the name given to the followers of the socialist policies of the late President Hugo Chavez, and those who cannot wait to see an end to the 18 years in power of his United Socialist Party (PSUV).

After the socialist leader died in 2013, Nicolas Maduro, also of the PSUV, was elected president on a promise to continue Mr Chavez’s policies.

Chavistas praise the two men for using Venezuela’s oil riches to markedly reduce inequality and for lifting many Venezuelans out of poverty.

But the opposition says that since the PSUV came to power in 1999, the socialist party has eroded Venezuela’s democratic institutions and mismanaged its economy.

Chavistas in turn accuse the opposition of being elitist and of exploiting poor Venezuelans to increase their own riches.

They also allege that opposition leaders are in the pay of the United States, a country with which Venezuela has had fraught relations in recent years.

From The Federalist Papers:

Couple this with Maduro’s fledgling popularity (he isn’t as charismatic as his predecessor) and falling oil prices (which comprise the majority of Venezuelan wealth) and that forces “the government to curtail its social programs, leading to an erosion of support among its core backers.”

And, as opposition grows, the Maduro government becomes more uncomfortable and silences protesters.

These protesters, many of whom have been jailed and killed, are demanding general elections in 2017 and a release of all political prisoners.

I find it very interesting that liberals constantly critique President Trump’s “America first” strategy–suggesting its selfish center and neglect for humanitarian crises around the world.

Yet, when terror, blood, and oppression ravage the streets in Venezuela and Trump responds, those same liberals roll their eyes, call Trump a warmonger, and add this to his list of ‘many liberal sins’.

God Bless.
