On Wednesday, May 1, 2019, the Congresswoman claimed that US meddling has led to Venezuela’s collapse according to a Breitbart story.

In an interview with Democracy Now!Ilhan Omar said “You know, I mean, a lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela.”

She added, “This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela, and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States.”

In sum, Omar blamed US interference, instead of Venezuela’s well-documented experience with socialism for the country’s collapse.

Venezuela’s latest stage of instability came when Juan Guaidó assumed the role of Interim President in January.

Since then the country has been in a presidential crisis of sorts which only escalated after the latest uprising on April 30, 2019.

Omar’s stance on non-interventionism in Venezuela differs from Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz, who, on the other hand, sees America staying out of the way as a matter of self-determination for the Venezuelan people. Unlike Omar, Gaetz recognizes that socialism has clearly left the Venezuelan economy in shambles.

This is not the Minnesota Congresswoman’s first foray with controversy this week.

Earlier this week, BLP reported on Omar slamming white people and America at a rally where groups like Black Lives Matter were in attendance.

The fighter himself commented on this news, declaring “The anti communism bus tour will be arriving at a city near you #supernecessary.”

 

Masvidal, whose parents are Cuban and Peruvian, has been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.

Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.

The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.

Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.

Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
