Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) response to the socialist nightmare unfolding in Venezuela has caught America’s attention.
That’s because the usually prolific tweeter has been completely silent on the deepening crisis. Surely, she knows that it does nothing but destroy her arguments in favor of bringing socialism to America.
“Dead silence from @AOC and other socialists about Venezuela. What! No lectures about how they need to start recycling? No praise for the gun confiscation policy of the Maduro regime? No calls to crush the bourgeois counterrevolutionaries in the street?” author Dinesh D’Souza tweeted.
PragerU characterized the socialist lawmakers’ response as “crickets.”
“If I've got this straight, AOC and Bernie Sanders both worry Trump might harm journalists due to his rhetoric. Both have also been hesitant to criticize Maduro, who regularly abuses journalists and apparently just threw CNN off the air in Venezuela,” journalist Jack Hunter noted.
Seriously, AOC and Bernie don’t want to talk about it.
Here’s the last thing AOC had tweeted as of 7:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Not a word on the socialist meltdown.
President Donald Trump assured the American and Venezuelan people that he is monitoring the situation closely.
"I am monitoring the situation in Venezuela very closely. The United States stands with the People of Venezuela and their Freedom!" he tweeted.
Pray for the Venezuelan people.
