Anarchy and Blood in Utopian Gun-Free Zones

Left-wing authoritarianism has had the same effect in Venezuela as in Obama’s single-party home town Chicago:

Venezuela, the most violent country in South America, recorded a new high of 21,692 murders [with a few days left in 2012] along with a surge in kidnappings, prison riots and random shootings.

The number of victims was up by 12 per cent from last year when there were 19,336 deaths, the Venezuelan Violence Observatory said in its annual report.

What is causing all this violence? Drug wars? Insurgents? Neither:

Unlike other Latin American countries Venezuela is not involved in a drug war or on-going battle with guerrillas.

The problem is an authoritarian government more interested in redistributing wealth to its supporters than in performing its proper functions. The result is a hybrid that combines the worst traits of dictatorship and anarchy.

The Observatory said: “Killings have become a way of executing property crimes, a mechanism to resolve personal conflicts and a way to apply private justice.”

Not to worry, the same Big Government whose suffocating omnipotence makes it impossible to do business in Venezuela is on top of the situation:

In 2010 when the newspaper El Nacional published a picture of a dozen murder victims at a morgue, a court ordered the newspaper to stop publishing images of violence.

Venezuela is ruled by socialist thug Hugo Chavez, whose “Bolivarian Revolution” is barely distinguishable from Obama’s “Hope & Change.”

Venezuela’s murder rate has soared since Chavez took office in 1999, growing from 4,450 murders in 1998 Criminologists expected the rate to fall with decreasing poverty, but income inequality has fallen dramatically and murders are going up.

Well then, it must be the lax gun laws that characterize leftist regimes. Just kidding, of course. Private ownership of firearms is banned in Venezuela.

Gun ownership is as close to banned as liberals can manage in Chicago, until such a time as the Constitution is officially discarded. Consequently, the city recently celebrated its 500th homicide of 2012 and is off to a fast start for 2013.

    Here’s a New Year gift from the republican party and it’s fearsome leaders to the American sheeple.

  2. A. Levy says:

    When will we finally understand that reason, logic, facts, and rational thought play no part in the liberal thought process. To the Left, facts and commonsense do not over-ride ideology. Until we “grow-a-pair” and start using their tactics against them, we will not defeat the Left!

    Our failure to understand this caused us to lose the last election, an election where the republican party seemed to go out of it’s way to show the nation just how weak it could be. And by the time the Marxist-in-Chief leaves office, assuming he does, it will have caused us to lose the entire culture war.

  3. Sam Adams says:

    Murders are so high and incomes are not equal because there are still enemies to the people out there. They are thwarting Dear Leader’s plans.

    They must be crushed. They are bumps in the road Forward ®.

    New heights in stupidity.

    Reason Enough.

  6. Kevin R. says:

    Since civilization is free society, the more you destroy free society the more you destroy the civilized world.

    The Left is dedicated to destroying all the pillars of free society, hence they destroy civilization itself and make society like a jungle where anarchy and murder reign supreme.

    You can’t destroy freedom without destroying civilization itself.

    Love the article detailing first shooting of 2013 in Shitcago.

    “EDITOR’S NOTE: Due to the hate speech and destructive nature of many of the comments being left on this article, commenting has been disabled”

    Hate speech probably infers pointing out the obvious failures of liberal gun control laws and that new $25 per gun tax. I doubt the gang thugs are paying that as they get their guns illegally.
