“Hecho en Socialismo”

In Venezuela, there are government-run grocery stores that take a page from Thomas Aquinas and sell their products at a “just price” (precio justo):


Now the government has innovated and is selling propaganda products in their stores:


This is a bag of rice. “Guarimbas” are barricades used in protests and “paracos” are paramilitary organizations.

Note that the protester getting kicked has claws and a tail (i.e. is depicted as a rat).

Note also in the heart on the lower right it says “Hecho en Socialismo”. Made in Socialism.

It’s actually more likely the product was made in Guyana!

Hat tip to Boz.
