Where are all the Chavez and Maduro Catholycs Today?

As you know, I try not to comment on topics that do not affect the Archdiocese of Washington DC.  However, there had been dead silence from the liberal Catholycs regarding the situation in Venezuela.


When Chavez took control of Venezuela, liberal Catholycs, similar to the boys and girls over at the National Catholic Reporter, were jumping all over themselves about how great things.  They kept telling us how wonderful things were, how terrible we in the US were, etc.  When I would tell them that it will come crashing down, I was told that I had no idea of what I was talking about.


However, over the last year or so, there has been SILENCE about their support for the socialist government of Maduro.  Could it be because the country no longer had medical supplies, limited food, etc.?  Years of mismanagement, and a drop in the price of oil has turned Venezuela into a third world country.


Maybe those liberal Catholycs should start sending their cash to the poor in Venezuela, and deprive themselves of a couple of meals.


I doubt it, because they are all talk.
