While the current occupant of the White House and the Vicar of Christ embrace the ruler of the Castro Kingdom and help him stay on his throne, that same monarch continues to bring misery not only to his own people, but also to his colonial subjects in Venezuela.
No doubt about it: the world is blind in one eye and Latrine America is blind in both eyes.
Take one look at what 56 years of Castroism has done to Cuba and you know where it leads. Take one look at Venezuela — an oil-rich nation that could look like Dubai — and there is no way anyone should miss the fact that it has been ruined by Castroism, Bolivarianism, and 21st-century socialism.
Yet far too many Latrine Americans hanker to follow in the footsteps of the Castro Kingdom and its colony of Caracastan. And far too many world leaders, including the pope, cheer them on.
Lord have mercy. The Castros, Maduros, Moraleses, Correas, Rouseffs, Kirchners, Ortegas, etc.. of Latrine America are quickly creating a Fourth World, even poorer and more miserable and repressive than the Third.
And yet, they are embraced by many of their own people and lauded by most foreigners.
This is nothing new, of course. Even 2,500 years ago, this kind of behavior was common.
In their blind conceit,
they cannot see how wicked they really are.
3 Everything they say is crooked and deceitful.
They refuse to act wisely or do good.
4 They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots.
Their actions are never good.
They make no attempt to turn from evil. (Psalm 36:2-4)

Venezuela’s Food Shortages Trigger Long Lines, Hunger and Looting
Violent clashes flare in pockets of the country as citizens wait for hours for basics, such as milk and rice
Hours after they looted and set fire to a National Guard command post in this sun-baked corner of Venezuela earlier this month, a mob infuriated by worsening food shortages rammed trucks into the smoldering edifice, reducing it mostly to rubble.
The incident was just one of numerous violent clashes that have flared in pockets around the country in recent weeks as Venezuelans wait for hours in long supermarket lines for basics like milk and rice. Shortages have made hunger a palpable concern for many Wayuu Indians who live here at the northern tip of Venezuela’s 1,300-mile border with Colombia.
The soldiers had been deployed to stem rampant food smuggling and price speculation, which President Nicolás Maduro blames for triple-digit inflation and scarcity. But after they seize contraband goods, the troops themselves often become targets of increasingly desperate people.
“What’s certain is that we are going very hungry here and the children are suffering a lot,” said María Palma, a 55-year-old grandmother who on a recent blistering hot day had been standing in line at the grocery store since 3 a.m. before walking away empty-handed at midday.
In a national survey, the pollster Consultores 21 found 30% of Venezuelans eating two or fewer meals a day during the second quarter of this year, up from 20% in the first quarter. Around 70% of people in the study also said they had stopped buying some basic food item because it had become unavailable or too expensive.
