dropping any further support for socialist hypsters sanders/aoc…//Bernie Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez Legitimize Regime Change in Venezuela | Left Voice

As we know from history, U.S. foreign policy has never been about helping the masses take their destiny in their own hands. Rather, the U.S. has helped topple innumerable democratic leftist governments, and has propped up innumerable right-wing dictatorships. Opposing U.S. meddling with the call “Hands off Venezuela!” is essential.
