GLENN: I'm going to give you some -- I'm going to give you some audio and some video that you'll say, I can't believe -- I don't even understand it. And then I'll give you a couple of pieces of audio that will take you back to a time where you're like, oh, my gosh. I understand this world.
A couple of things that have been said by, you know, big people on the planet, this week. Totally made sense and made me go, oh, okay. It's not just me. And we'll get to those in a second. But first I want to take you to Venezuela. Where the people of Venezuela, because of socialism, are literally eating their dogs and their cats. Literally. There's nothing left of Venezuela.
Yesterday, the guy who wanted to be president -- because he was a bus driver. He was just like you. Now he's a multi millionaire. How did that happen, you know, besides stealing money from the people? Maduro, the Venezuelan president was giving a speech -- go ahead and roll this. He was giving a speech to the people. And right in the middle of it -- first of all, he looks just like Josef Stalin.
And right into the middle of it, he reaches down, and he takes a bite of an empanada in the middle of his presidential speech.
VOICE: (another language)
STU: Right. He's playing -- you hear him talking throughout it, he's playing some other audio. Like, he presses a button. They fire off another speech. He thinks he's not on TV anymore. So his starving nation isn't watching him. And then he goes behind the desk and pulls out a delicious meal.
GLENN: Can you imagine that? So now everybody is saying let them eat empanadas. It is incredible.
STU: How consistent is this with everything that was on the chalkboard series this week.
GLENN: Wish we had it. Wish we had it.
STU: Yeah. TheBlaze.com/TV. There's four episodes this week all on socialism. Venezuela was featured on one of them. But it goes through -- I thought it was interesting to see. You think of like a Maduro. But six months ago, people would have said, oh, he's a nice guy, and it's failing. Before he started becoming president. They would have said, oh, he's a nice guy. And that's been the case throughout.
Yeah, these guys turn into dictators once they get power. Yeah, they turn into Hitler. They turn into Stalin. They turn into Chavez. They turn into Maduro. But they don't start that way all the
Even in the cases where the people start off with the best of intentions and were good people, by all accounts, this failed as miserably as it fails everywhere else.
GLENN: That's why -- that why, you know, this series that we did at TheBlaze.com -- and you can watch it now on demand. The series that we did all this week, that's why we said it was the biggest lie. Socialism is nothing, but a huge lie.
It doesn't work. It's never worked. But it always starts with the best intentions. And the ones that get hurt are usually the ones who are on the street fighting for it. They're the first to get hurt. Because the -- the poor are decimated by it in the end, as you're seeing now. They are eating cats and literally eating cats and dogs, while the people up at the top, they're having their empanada.
