'THREE STOOGES' OF SOCIALISM: BOLTON SLAMS CUBA, VENEZUELA, NICARAGUA LEADERS AS 'TROIKA OF TYRANNY' WHILE PRAISING BOLSONARO
BY JASON LEMON ON 11/1/18 AT 1:58 PM

White House national security adviser John Bolton has compared the leaders of Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela to the “Three Stooges,” saying they are like “Larry, Curly and Moe,” but are “true believers” in socialism.

The top Trump administration official spoke Thursday at the Freedom Tower in Miami, taking aim at leftist leaders in Central and South America, while also hailing the victory of far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, The Miami Herald reported. Despite a long history of allegedly racist, sexist and homophobic comments, as well as expressed fondness for military dictatorship and torture, Bolsonaro won by a wide margin in a Sunday runoff in Latin America’s largest country.

Calling the Brazilian president-elect “like-minded,” Bolton said his victory, as well as the recent win of right-wing populist Iván Duque in Colombia, are “positive signs for the future of the region, and demonstrate a growing regional commitment to free-market principles, and open, transparent, and accountable governance."

Conversely, Bolton blasted the socialist leaders of Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua, and said they are more like “clowns.” However, he also dubbed them “Troika of Tyranny,” an apparent reference to Soviet communism that also reminded analysts of former President George W. Bush’s “Axis of Evil” term for foreign governments that sponsored terrorism. The term was used to describe Iran, Iraq and North Korea, but it was also comprised of Cuba, Libya and Syria.

4. and they love the rightwing fascist nutjob in Columbia

which doesn't surprise me but what did surprise me was the amount of DU members in the past who were against some of the leftist governments in SA, for whatever reason. I'm thinking they may have been Russian plants but they always seemed to show up whenever a thread about Columbia or Venezuela was posted.

5. He's talking about socialism and doesn't mention Russia?

Hmm, wonder why since they were the original socialist country, but guess slamming PUtin isn't allowed by his tool and fluffer, drumpf.

9. Russia isn't, and has never been, a socialist country.

They were once Communist, which meant that someone at the top (the Communist Party leaders) decided how things should be apportioned out to all the socialistic party members. Now Russia is run by an oligarchy. A few people who have amassed unfathomable wealth in this world now control the show for everyone on Earth.
