Let them eat cake: Venezuela gov't celebrates dead Hugo Chavez's birthday with $100,000 cake while the people starve

While Venezuelans are desperate to find food (see links at the end of this post), their president, Nicolás Maduro, saw fit to spend $100,000 on a cake to celebrate the birthday of a dead man — his predecessor in criminal government and actor Sean Penn’s best bud, Hugo Chavez.
Maduro eats cake
ZeroHedge reports, July 30, 2016:

Nothing describes socialism more aptly than baking a 4 feet tall cake weighing 90 kilos for Hugo Chavez’s birthday (a dead man) while the rest of the country starves, cannot find basic necessities
The cake is a recreation of the “Cuartel de la Montana”, the palace that Chavez famously stormed in 1992 as an army commander to protest Carlos Andres Perez’s government.

Cuartel de la MontanaAccording to a local newspaper, the following ingredients were used to make the cake — all in short supply in Venezuela’s supermarkets:

  1. 720 eggs
  2. 23 kilos of butter
  3. 90 kilos of flour
  4. 90 kilos of sugar
  5. 44 gallons of milk

Meanwhile, hungry Venezuelans cry at the sight of food, as the country’s economic crisis deepens.
While it is true that it was the Venezuelan people who had bought into the socialist pipe-dream and elected Hugo Chavez and his successor Maduro, even fools don’t deserve to starve while their president, who can lose a few pounds, and the political élite eat cake.

And still not a peep from Sean Penn.

You are correct: Marie Antoinette never did utter that phrase. “Fraser points out in her biography that Marie-Antoinette was a generous patroness of charity and moved by the plight of the poor when it was brought to her attention, thus making the statement out-of-character for her. This makes it unlikely that Marie-Antoinette ever said this.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_them_eat_cake Dare I say this is in very bad taste, so to speak. And why –if it is true– isn’t the Chavez family’s US$2 Billion fortune being spent to feed the masses. It surely is, after all, what Hugo would have wanted, is it not?… Read more »

Kinda like how the 1 percent celebrate everyday in this country too. 100,000.dollar bottles of champagne, caviar, cars, and billion dollar homes. While the working class continue to to bail them out to fund their welfare for rich programs.

At what point will the people rise up and overthrow this new bastard who is in charge? As for Sean Penn, he is a scrounge human being, he would never have the moral character to speak words of condemnation for what is going on in Venezuela. Secretly, he would have no problem with that happening here in the USA, as long as he is one of the elites who get to eat! This is the same mentality of the majority of the Hollywood crowd . . . they all think that is Socialism is brought into being in the US,… Read more »

Penn’s behaviors is identical to his father’s. 100% communist.
The rest of their abhorrent behavior is totally to be expected. They would never consider using good money to help the starving masses.
The sooner the people here realize this, the sooner we can bring our country back.

He doesn’t even look like he’s enjoying the cake, in the first photo he’s inspecting the cake like the icing was put on by a pornstar.

It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if they sent in a SEAL team and dispatched the stinking commie bastard straight to Hell.
Yeah, I know it is “technically” illegal, but there are just some people that don’t belong in this world, and comrade Maduro is one of them.
After all, there is only one type of good commie.
