Venezuela president says politicians are ‘the new Jews that Hitler pursued’

Maduro compares harassment of government officials amid economic chaos to what Jews faced, saying: ‘We are going to defeat these 21st-century Nazis’

The Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro, has likened the harassment of government officials and their families outside of Venezuela to the treatment of Jews under the Nazis.

Maduro also said in comments to a televised cabinet meeting late on Tuesday that planned opposition rallies in Caracas on Wednesday evening were reminiscent of rallies during the rise of Nazism and fascism in pre-second world war Europe.

    I’m not even Jewish and I find that comparison so moronic that I’m somewhat offended.

    • Shebel

      Me also.

      It doesn’t offend me as a Jew, it offends me as a comedian.

      If the Nazis themselves had happened on this moral inversion then we’d really be confused.

    He’s grasping at straws.

      He should grasp his head and pull it out of his ads first. The bigotry of the Left is sickening.

    Nazis were German Nationalist Socialists, and Maduro heads the Venezuelan National Socialists. Nazis were extremely anti-semitic, Venezuala is anti-semitic.

    See the difference! /sarc

    I figure within another US Presidential election or two the Democrats will be putting forward enlightened platforms like this. Especially given their appeal with the American Muslim community

  • Shebel

    When a half assed monkee start using Jews and Nazis—
    as a comparison—
    then you know—

  • Shebel

    There is something strange going on—

  • Shebel

    It is fucking scarey.

  • Shebel

    I would not have problem to say that Muslims are the new Nazis.
    You Venezuelan piece of shit.
    I have no doubt that the Muslims will be coming to save your useless ass.
    I wonder which side the Commies are on?

  • Shebel

    Nicolas Madura– just out of curiosity do you have any Rebels in your Country that are allowed to SPEAK for the PEOPLE ?
    Besides the Jews and the Nazis.
    How is that oil business going ?
    Who you going to sell your Country out to ?
    I guess your People are pretty much fucked.
    It is real shame.

    Long as YOU come out smelling like a Rose.

    He should be the president of Yale or some other idiot university
