As Venezuela Collapses, Children Are Dying of Hunger

SAN CASIMIRO, Venezuela — Kenyerber Aquino Merchán was 17 months old when he starved to death.

His father left before dawn to bring him home from the hospital morgue. He carried Kenyerber’s skeletal frame into the kitchen and handed it to a mortuary worker who makes house calls for Venezuelan families with no money for funerals.

    They should just change his name to Alan and put the body on a beach. Then it would be HitlerTrumpHarper’s fault.

    If a government does it to its own people, is it still genocide?

    Hey I hear there’s an international organization that does that humanitarian aid thing. I think their name has a U and an N in it. Someone should drag them away from screaming for a new Holocaust. Or not.

      The UN is too busy coming up with resolutions to demonize Israel to be bothered with a trivial matter such has starvation in Venezuela.

    And the fruits of communism is always starvation and sometimes cannibalism in the bargain. Paging Dr. Jordan Peterson.
