In a Jan. 24 response to Trump’s recognition of Venezuela’s National Assembly President Juan Guaidó as the country’s legitimate leader, Sanders echoed the Maduro propaganda line by warning that, “The United States has a long history of inappropriately intervening in Latin American countries. We must not go down that road again.”…
Other left-wing Democratic legislators didn’t even mention Maduro’s break of democratic rule. Ocasio-Cortez retweeted a statement criticizing Democratic Sen.

Even worse, freshman U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minnesota, denounced an alleged U.S.-backed “coup” in Venezuela, and called for a “dialogue” with the Maduro dictatorship.
Andrés Oppenheimer (who probably has a poster of Juan and Eva Peron tacked up inside his garage) is not criticizing the Socialists in his party because they are not on the side of freedom and democracy but because they are sabotaging the way to the White House in 2020.

Will the Democrats react in kind? Will Democratic congressional leaders and presidential candidates come to Florida to stress their full support for Guaidó?
They should do it as soon as possible. It’s the right thing to do — and it’s the politically smart thing to do. Otherwise, Cuban-American voters will vote in even greater numbers for Republicans in 2020, and help re-elect Trump in 2020.
In other times, we would have suspected this was the real cause and not caring for the plight of people oppressed by a regime. But once you break the barrier of wanting to murder live babies, pretty much anything else is easier to be said without shame, right?
Welcome to the Democratic Party we have been telling you about all these years. Vote for them with the confidence you are expendable.
