It is way past being a glaring, in-your-face double standard. It is just another witness to the amorality of lefties, particularly the Iranian ones.

People of Venezuela have risen up against a corrupt to the bone “socialist” system, which despite having the world’s number one proven oil reserves has driven the economy into the ground.

Not only millions of literally starving Venezuelans have fled the country, on average the remaining ones have lost much weight due to lack of food.

However, the lefties of the Iranian variety - many of them residing in democratic capitalist countries including America - are vehemently against foreign help for the desperate Venezuelans, they are for all intent and purposes allying themselves with the Islamist fascists who back the Venezuelan dictator. 

Airtight sanctions - which includes oil - a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
