The other night I watched Norah O’Donnell on the CBS Evening News. She was covering a story about a Venezuelan refugee (also a journalist) who’d been threatened by the Venezuelan Socialist government and feared for her life. She escaped with her 2 year-old son by walking through the jungle and crossing the Rio Grande to get to safety in America.
Norah explained the situation and said that Venezuela had an Authoritarian Government (visible if you click on the link below) -Last I heard they’d voted themselves a Socialist Government.
Venezuela has the Socialist Government that many Americans are now pining for here in the USA- So then was it a Freudian Slip: an unintentional error revealing subconscious feelings? That Socialists are Authoritarian?
Or did Norah not want to admit that the government was a Socialist government? Was she trying to cover that up?
Why are so many Venezuelans trying to escape from Venezuela? The same people who voted the Socialists in, now want out of the country. Did the nirvana the populace were promised turn out to be just a bunch of lies so that the corrupt officials could take over the oil rich country? Apparently so…
At 00:36/2:09 Norah calls it an Authoritarian government…The rest of America and the world call it a Socialist government
