Caller Describes the Deteriorating Circumstances in Venezuela: ‘They Are Killing People’

As things continue to deteriorate in Venezuela, one caller joined Glenn on air to discuss the utter desperation his family is facing in Venezuela and how important he believes it is that the media continue to cover this crisis.

In an emotional phone call, Andre from Florida shares the pride he feels in coming to America and how much he appreciates a free press while highlighting the absolute heartbreak he feels for his home country.

“It’s really tough. They are killing people in the streets,” Andre said.

“Andre, how can we help? How can somebody help?” Glenn asked. Andre said that he feels there hasn’t been enough media coverage and that if we truly want to help, we must continue to discuss what’s unfolding. Venezuelans lack independent media and journalists and rely solely on the government to receive any information about the country’s downward spiral.

“But I know that it’s tough because I speak with my family every single day. They are killing teenagers in the street,” said Andre who worries about the safety of his family in the country.

“I came here about two years ago, and I mean, thanks to you, I think I understood finally what makes America the greatest country on Earth. And I feel so bad that things are so tough in Venezuela,” Andre said.

Since moving to America, Andre says he’s found something he can believe in. “I found values. I found principles. I found so many things that they (sic) were just unknown to me.’

When asked about how his family is doing, Andre revealed that every month he and his aunt send boxes and boxes of food and medicine but fear the Venezuelan government will seize it at any time.

Right vs. Left: The Time for Compromise Is OVER | Jesse Kelly | Ep 146

The Left worked for decades to get control, and now they have it: “Every cultural pillar has been infected and taken over,” Jesse Kelly warns Glenn. So, it’s time to get out of the stands and onto the field. On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," the host of the nationally syndicated "Jesse Kelly Show" joins with a blunt message for the Right: The time for compromise is gone. This system that’s raising young people who hate America can’t be salvaged, and while taking back Congress in 2022 would be nice, LOCAL victories are what really matter. But this won’t be a quick fight. Thankfully, Jesse has some solutions, and they involve Play-Doh …

Where are our STANDARDS, America?

Since when are we the people that throw our hands up and accept the new normal?

We're the people, that despite all odds, we took it on. We didn't settle for less. And that's what they're telling you to do now, settle for less.

No. That's not who we are. Why would we be willing to sit around and wait for the government to fix it?

Don't lower your standards. That's un-American. We don't lower our standards. We raise standards. And that is our legacy.

Elon Musk CALLED OUT for…chocolate milk?

You can milk anything with nipples, as we discovered in the documentary Meet the Parents. Maybe someone should tell Elon Musk if he's really serious about the environment, he should try oat milk, almond milk, heck — there's even banana milk. It would at least keep some of the lefty trolls at bay.
