Former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley sharply criticized three prominent Democrats — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders — for going soft on Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship.
“On the fringes of the left, celebrity politicians refuse to condemn [Venezuelan dictator Nicolas] Maduro. Worse, some have actually embraced him,” Haley wrote in a Monday post for Stand For America, her new political organization.
The article goes on to state the following:
Haley ticked through the responses from Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and Sanders, taking shots at each one.
Haley’s post was titled “The Left’s Cowardice on Venezuela.”
“The humanitarian crisis in Venezuela is the kind of issue that should supersede politics. It shouldn’t matter what political party you belong to; it shouldn’t matter whom you voted for. Every political leader in America should condemn Maduro’s iron grip. Every political leader should root for the Venezuelan people.” Haley wrote. “Sadly, that’s not the case. On the fringes of the left, celebrity politicians refuse to condemn Maduro. Worse, some have actually embraced him.”
In the post, Haley lists the following instances:
- When a reporter asked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez if the Maduro regime is legitimate, she offered this non-answer: “I defer to caucus leadership on how we navigate this.” A simple “no” would have sufficed.
- In an interview with “Democracy Now!” Rep. Ilhan Omar blamed America for the crisis in Venezuela and accused the U.S. of bullying Maduro: “A lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela, and we’ve sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today. 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.”
- While Bernie Sanders has conceded that there are terrible things happening in Venezuela, he has repeatedly refused to label Maduro a dictator.
“I hope we can put politics aside,” Haley writes in closing. “I hope all our leaders on both sides of the aisle can recognize that some things are more important than scoring political points. This is about good versus evil. This is about human rights. This is about the basic humanity of all people, and the God-given right to live freely in possession of one’s own destiny.
