Watch Socialist Paradise Central Planning In Action: Venezuela Looting Edition

Tyler Durden's picture

What happens when the government sets the precedent that what was private is now public property? Encouraged by President Maduro's seeming incitement "Leave nothing on the shelves, nothing in the warehouses... Let nothing remain in stock!" crowds of Venezuelans looted the local DAKA stores after the government's 'occupation'... "this is good for the nation," Maduro concluded... You decide...


Some might argue that DAKA (in a mysteriously karmic way) got its back on Maduro as he was propelled from his bike by 'nothing' the day after...

I guess that means that my friends Roberto S and Antonio E will not be able to work with me to sell those wheel bearings for Yutong buses down there in Venezuela (at least 800 of them (total) in the Caracas bus fleet and at PDVSA - the state's oil company).

Venezuela is in deep trouble.

The looting business model seems to be working here in the U.S..

EscapeKey's picture

Yes, but that's CAPITALISTIC looting, and clearly much better then SOCIALISTIC looting.

If you are going to loot, why would you share?

johnQpublic's picture

how long before anyone with a store closes it permanently?

LFMayor's picture

say 10 minutes after the looters show up...

Are you talking about the Government or the FSA?

The promises of socialism are so great I fear it may never die.  It would be nice to send all of the socialists and freegans to a desert island somewhere.  They can rob each other for coconuts until they either get bored or all wind up with an equal number of coconuts.

All those people walk out with big screen TV's.


So what are they gonna do when the power is switched off?  Oh I get it, use the dynamo on the bike you got from the other shop, right?

Funny...I thought it looked a lot more like Venezuela, since that's where it was.

They would eat the last coconut and starve under a palm tree.

insanelysane's picture

They would eat the last coconut and starve under a palm tree waiting for a do-er to climb the tree and get another coconut or waiting for the government to force a do-er to climb the tree for more coconuts.


Fixed it for ya.

Harbanger's picture

You didn't fix it, you understood it.

Someone tell them to save me one, I could use a new TV

We going to see much better "walmart invasion" Black Friday videos from USA in couple weeks.

See recent Sports Authority videos from the greater (lesser) Chicago area.

Great resale prices for that stuff on Ebay.  Check it out!

Treat government beliefs like religious beliefs.

Support panarchism.

Prudent businesspeople would close 10 minutes before.

...and leave the freaking country before they're jailed or assassinated.

Poundsand's picture

On the bright side, we've moved from let them eat cake to let them have a big screen tv.

dontgoforit's picture

Yeah, now they can sit at home and watch Behind the Green Door cartridges until their brains ferment.

Marilyn, Marilyn, wherefore art thou Marilyn.....

Better yet, how long until a store owner who lost everthing IEDs Maduro?

We are agents for manufacturers and import companies in the gift/housewares business.

15 years ago, we had almost 2400 accounts in the southeast.  Today, that is down to less than 200.  Main Street was where we made a living.  Emphasis on WAS.  Now it is just key accounts - primarily low-end acounts like Fred's, Family Dollar, etc., and where there 16 people in the company, now there are 3.5.

Looters take many forms.  The ones in this video are just the most visible.

Clark Bent's picture

Note how proprietary the looter becomes as he's making off with the booty. Others try to seize "theirs" from a looter only to be met with snarls of contempt and threat. What irony.

Socialism in its naked greed.  

TheLooza's picture

Damn.  That looks like my local Costco on any given Sunday, minus the free samples.

dontgoforit's picture

and this one:  Thou shall not steal.  Good catholics down there.

Anusocracy's picture

Animals have strong concepts of 'my property' and 'our property', but not 'your property'.

Unfortunately, that includes the 99% of H. sapiens that are not fully human.

LFMayor's picture

we need to invent the gom jabbar and start testing?

Anusocracy's picture

I have a fairly high tolerance of pain, having once gone to work with a ruptured appendix.

But I don't think overcoming pain would be a good test.

StychoKiller's picture

Suggest you read the book again, "Gom Jabbar" was a poisoned object.

KnightTakesKing's picture

The Gom Jabbar was used so you didn't remove your hand from the box -- the real pain object.

The_Dude's picture

I don't think you get to blame this on the Catholics.....there are a few other -ism's that you should be focused on here.

dontgoforit's picture

I AM a Catholic; just sayin'.  I've been down there - with few exceptions, they're all Catholic.

Harbanger's picture

Theyr'e mostly Liberation Theology socialist bitches, Catholics in name only.

Nick Jihad's picture

What? This is as catholic as it gets - "Father, I have sinned, by stealing a TV."  "That'll be 25 Hail Mary's son, and don't forget to make a donation."

Harbanger's picture

I'm not going to defend the Catholic church, but it's obvious they have a homo problem amongst some of their clergy.  Time they clean house.

Flakmeister's picture

You are aware that your alleged saviour was a socialist of the first rank? Or did that escape you?

Calmyourself's picture

I call BS, you did not understand the book, try again.

Thessalonions 3:10-12

 "For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. 11 For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. 12 Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.[a]"

Harbanger's picture

The angel closes your eyes.

Promethus's picture

If your alleged savior is Obama, then I agree with you. Otherwise you're an idiot.

No his was highlighted in the New Testament...
