Venezuelan Women robbed at Gunpoint for their Hair despite living in a Socialist Utopia

Week in Review

The American left loves Venezuela.  Because they are a socialist nation.  Where they put people before profits.  And everyone links arms and sings Kumbaya.  As everyone lives in harmony in the Venezuelan paradise.  Life just doesn’t get better than life in Venezuela (see Venezuelan thieves stealing hair to sell as hair extensions by Alasdair Baverstock posted 8/9/2013 on The Telegraph).

In Maracaibo, Venezuela’s second largest city, the gang is targeting women whose flowing locks, once removed, can be made into natural hair extensions and sold to beauty salons.

The robbers operate by holding their victims at gunpoint and ordering them to tie their hair into a ponytail, before removing it with a razor blade.

Hard to believe.  In a country where everyone has everything why would there be any criminals?  For in the West they say criminality is a result of income disparity.  The anger that rises between the haves and the have nots.  That spills out into criminal activity.  Yet here is criminality.  In a country where there is no income disparity.  Where everyone has everything.

“The demand for hair extensions has risen by 30 per cent since the crimes started”, said Jhonatan Morales, a beauty salon owner who spoke to state television channel Globovision.

“The market is more competitive now. We judge the hair on its tone, condition and colour”, he said. “But my salon doesn’t buy from street vendors as we don’t know where the hair has come from”.

So these Venezuelan women are being robbed of their hair at gunpoint for other Venezuelan women.  Guess hair extensions are the one thing the socialist government of Venezuela doesn’t provide for their people.  So apart from hair extensions everyone has everything.  Because everyone is equal in Venezuela.  Where there is no income disparity.  And no crime.  Only singing of Kumbaya.  Except for when it comes to hair extensions.  For apparently the socialist utopia in Venezuela doesn’t eliminate hair disparity.

Maracaibo, a city of four million close to the Colombian border, is particularly prone to gang crime given the large amount of smuggling which occurs in the area.

Gang activity in the region is funded by the purchasing of basic goods such as lavatory paper and rice, the prices of which are heavily subsidized by Venezuela’s socialist government. The goods are then smuggled across the border into Colombia where they are sold for a profit at normal market rates.

Not only do they have hair disparity which leads to hair crime they have the worst of all criminals.  Profiteers.  Who instead of singing Kumbaya for having everything they ever could want in their socialist utopia turn to greed.  Taking advantage of the state subsidies to turn a profit.  Something that’s not supposed to happen in a socialist utopia.  That kind of stuff is only supposed to happen in the greedy capitalist world.  Where they put profits before people.  Leading to income disparity.  And crime.  Where the people don’t link arms and sing Kumbaya.  Because life is so wretched there.  Unlike in Venezuela.  As long as you don’t walk the streets with beautiful, lustrous hair.

So maybe income disparity isn’t the source of crime.  For socialism hasn’t eliminated crime in Venezuela.  But you know what it has done?  Allowed great sweeping electoral victories for the candidate that promises to make life better for the have nots.  And if politicians ride to office by promising to make life better for the multitudes of the have nots do you really think they will make life better for the have nots?  And eliminate the great electoral advantage they have?  Probably not.  Which explains why there are always have nots.  And always will be.  Income disparity or not.
