Young Woman From Venezuela Warns Americans the Toppling of Statues is ‘Where Revolutions Start’

Young Woman From Venezuela Warns Americans the Toppling of Statues is ‘Where Revolutions Start’

“Never believe something can’t happen to you. You’ve got to defend your country and your society or it will be destroyed.”

Elizabeth Rogliani is a young woman from Venezuela living in the U.S., and she has a dire warning for Americans. When it comes to roving mobs of cultural Marxists toppling historic statues, she has seen this all before.

Her main message is this: Don’t think it can’t happen here.

Real Clear Politics has a transcript of her viral video:

ELIZABETH ROGLIANI: Why do I even worry about some silly little statues coming down or some silly little street names changing? Why do I care?

It is because the last time I didn’t care about this, I was a teenager. I have already lived through this thing when I was living in Venezuela. Statues came down — Chavez didn’t want that history displayed. And then he changed the street names. Then came the [school curricula]. Then some movies couldn’t be shown, then certain TV channels, and so on and so forth.

You guys think this can’t happen to you, I’ve heard it so many times. But always be on guard. Never believe something can’t happen to you. You’ve got to defend your country and your society or it will be destroyed.

We didn’t believe it could happen to us. Most Venezuelans –Cubans warned us– and we were like, “This is Venezuela, we know about freedom. That’s not going to happen here.” Yet it happened. And there are literally a lot of people wanting to destroy the U.S.

See the video below:

Ms. Rogliani’s video caught the attention of Laura Ingraham who invited her onto her show.

From FOX News:

Venezuelan activist warns Americans about statue removals: It will be a ‘slippery slope’

In an interview on “The Ingraham Angle” with host Laura Ingraham, Rogliani warned that these actions mark a “slippery slope” toward a potential “cultural revolution.”

“I don’t think they’re seeing past what’s going to happen next because they’re thinking these are just symbols of oppression,” she noted. “But, I had a lot of friends [who] told me, ‘Oh, it’s just the Confederate statues.’ And, I said, ‘No, it’s not going to be just the Confederate statues. Just wait and see.’ This is a slippery slope.”

According to Rogliani, any and all symbols of American history are now on the chopping block.

“Founding Fathers are going to be attacked. Religious symbols are going to be attacked. And next, probably, museums.” she predicted. “I mean, anything can be attacked if you just let it happen. If you just let the first ones come down, then [there are] no limits to what’s next.”

Here’s the clip:

It’s a chilling warning, and all too easy to believe.

Elizabeth Rogliani Otaola is as smart and well-spoken as Andrew Cuomo is disingenuous and dangerous.

    Don’t forget Obama and Biden.

    Charlie Kirk
    Oh in case you missed it we now have verifiable proof

    Obama and Biden

    were orchestrating the coup against Flynn and Trump. But sure, let’s keep trying to reform the police and let arsonists burn our cities.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

President Ronald Reagan

I can’t stand to listen to Cuomo any more. His condescending manner always comes through, and yet he is supremely stupid.

Every time we use the slippery slope argument about allowing “just this” will lead to further erosion is met with mockery about it would “never” go that far… then it does.

These leftists are a huge danger to our Republic. They are the Stalinists, the Maoists, the Brown Shirts, the Castroists. Far too many of the morons, the “Karens”, have no clue to what they are part of, they think it is utopia they are moving toward.

This is no different from what Germany went through during Hitler’s take over. No different than what Stalin and Mao did. The leaders are different, the declared enemies are different, the intent from those holding the strings are not different. The ideology of taking total control is there.

These are evil people. It can and likely will happen here. The schools have already been taken over and been producing indoctrinated morons for decades. We are seeing the results of these Marxist efforts in actions like what the Good Professor is going through, and many others who dare not follow the Marxist lines throughout academia. They have a propaganda media keeping far too many people being informed of lies and leftist party line ideas. The biggest difference from what revolutions of the past have with what is happening in America today is our left took over the support mechanism before they openly rebelled. These riots never were about Floyd. These statues are the symbols to be removed as they could remind people of times when there was real freedom.

The corruption in our government in vast. Congress and numerous agencies are bought off, with them thinking they will be the ultimate in wielding the power.

I’m not sure how this can be curbed. I have losing faith in the integrity of our election process being able to counter the massive fraud the left will push for, and might get with the Chinese virus to hide behind.

It is always a smaller percentage of the people who foment revolution. Too many stand on the side lines, and accept the crap sandwich they are handed. It always is done violently. Purges always follow their take over.

It absolutely can happen here. The foundations have already been laid. Will we be able to put up resistance to their plans? Or is it already too late?

    You are right.

    Before we know it, all these indoctrinated idiots will be in charge, i.e., they will be in all the leadership positions.

    We made our probably fatal mistake in allowing the leftist pigs to take over our educational system.

Unfortunately, the book-burners and statue-smashers WANT Venezuela.

And BLM is a handy cover. Anybody who opposes the Marxist agenda is instantly denounced as a racist. They’re not the same thing but that hardly matters when the meanings of words don’t matter. “Defunding” the police is also a cover. They won’t eliminate police, they’ll just be different police to take the place of the ones who aren’t there. The new ones will be more of a Red Guard.

    They won’t ask us about road signs, we’ll just go out one morning to find that they’ve been changed.

    Museums and libraries are already closed due to virus overreaction.

    Harassment tactics can be stepped up to drive non-conformists from schools and government bureaus.

    Newspapers and TV are already in their control.

    Resistance on the ‘net will be “hate speech” and shut down.

    Most of the job has already been done.

      And China, Russia, Iran and even the EU would send “Help” to further the destruction if they had to…if not already.

Connivin Caniff | June 27, 2020 at 11:35 am

It looks bad out here. Real bad. Just suppose the D’Rats win the Presidency, Senate and House. Then game it out from there. They can destroy everything. Real bad.

    The useful idiots that love Marxism and are trying to bring down the country forget that between them and pure communism is the dictatorship of the proletariat …. The very definition of the 1% they abhor. It never gets beyond that. Human nature prevents any final transition. It isn’t permitted to have all in The Party.

      txvet2 in reply to alaskabob. | June 27, 2020 at 2:12 pm

      One more time: The “dictatorship of the proletariat” (effectively, community ownership of the means of production [“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs] and a government by PURE democracy – i.e. pure majority rule) IS communism, BY DEFINITION. Government ownership (i.e. the 1%, or the elite) of the means of production IS socialism, BY DEFINITION. The Marxists have spent a century and a half blurring the meaning and goals of those two words, until the proletariat (the common working people) have no idea what they mean anymore. Please (not just you) actually read the Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital. They’re not that long and not that difficult to understand.

      The Russian socialists called themselves “Communists”, because in the beginning (some of) the ideologues actually believed that the goal was communism – but the movement was hijacked by the leadership (as always happens), who effectively eliminated the revolutionaries and ideologues and installed a socialist government. They still CALL themselves Communists to con the populace into thinking that’s still the ultimate goal, but they aren’t and never were. Likewise, the young skulls full of mush in this country may THINK they’re going to install a communist utopia (which by its very nature implies a government free society [What do you think the big movement to abolish the police is about? The police are the very embodiment of overbearing government]) but all they’ll end up doing (the ones who survive) is install another dictatorship, because people are only created equal in the eyes of God, not in ability, intelligence or ambition, and leaders will always arise and create their own de facto government – and they won’t be following the Constitution. And they’ve demonstrated exactly that in Seattle.

        The fools that support this always imagine they’ll be part of the inner circle, never realizing they’ll be among the first to be purged.

        If they had studied history instead of than propaganda, they’d know this. But they’d rather tear down history than study it.

    “Fundamental Change”???

We spent trillions of dollars defending ourselves and other countries from enemies outside our borders yet it may be the enemies within our borders that may lead to the down fall of this country.

sobering indeed–what a courageous young woman–quite a feat to come to live in the US and then, at considerable personal risk, warn us of what SHE sees happening here and then give us a first-person account of her experience in venezuela

had a neighbor years ago who was from caracas–even then, he spoke of tremendous government corruption

The journey of Venezuela from democracy to dictatorship, and from riches to rags, would seem a remarkable and important story.

Yet, how much of it has ever appeared in the mainstream press, let alone any of America’s classrooms?

Pearls before pigs.

The indoctrinated lunatics raging across the nation need to feel pain: pain is the only thing that will snap them out of it, whether it be a cracked skull, starvation or getting real in prison.

Pain is the only way. We’re simply at that point.

Dont’ delude yourselves that these young white psychos will fade away: they are narcissists, created by our schools.

Their deal is: “do our bidding, and you don’t have to go to work”. Mess with a narcissit’s deal with the Devil, and you die. Or, they feel enough pain to change their minds.

And when it this happening in Venezuela it was us, Cubans, telling them what this young lady is telling you now.
Their answer then was the same too many are giving now: “Not here. It will not happen to us. We live in a free and democratic country.”
And now it’s too late for Venezuelans.

This is real, people.
It’s happening.
Stop it now.
Later will be too late.

Guess I better go buy that shotgun after all.

Thankfully we do have the SECOND to apply. WHEN we really need it. I hope.
