Cohen said that Artyukhina “makes a great case that Venezuela – which is depicted in western media as a cartoonish dictatorship – is much more democratic than the United States”.
In the video, Artyukhina asserted that “There is so much we can learn in the United States from what they’ve done in Venezuela. From building millions of homes for the homeless.”
The Sputnik News writer even suggested that Venezuelan democracy is superior to American democracy.
They have a form of democracy that we’ve never seen before. They’re re-drafting their Constitution. Our constitution hasn’t been drafted in 250 years.
Veneuzela was all over the news this week, after Interim President Juan Guaidó led an uprising against strongman Nicolás Maduro.
Although it failed, this uprising has spurred Senator Lindsey Graham to call for military action in the country.
Many on the political Left, espcially the contronversial congresswoman Ilhan Omar, used the Venezuelan crisis to score anti-American talking points.
No matter how much evidence is presented, the Left continues to deny socialism’s negative impact on Venezuela.
