US is like 4th Reich

Summary of Disinformation

[Context: US policy in Venezuela] This is an absolute rule. US is a country that has a clear destiny, which, a bit like the 3rd Reich, believe they are better than all others. They may merit the nickname of the 4th Reich from this point of view.

Recurrent conspiracy narrative on the US having Nazi-like features.

Background on the situation in Venezuela: 

Nicolas Maduro was officially re-elected president of Venezuela on May 20, 2018.  Several Venezuelan NGOs, such as Foro Penal Venezolano, Súmate, Voto Joven, the Venezuelan Electoral Observatory and the Citizen Electoral Network, expressed their concern over the irregularities of the electoral schedule, including the lack of the Constituent Assembly's competencies to summon the elections, impeding participation of opposition political parties, and the lack of time for standard electoral functions.  After that the European Union, the Organization of American States, the Lima Group, Australia and the United States expressed concerns on electoral process.

In the declaration on behalf of the EU on the situation in Venezuela the High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini reiterated that the presidential elections last May in Venezuela were neither free, fair, nor credible, lacking democratic legitimacy. The EU has called for the urgent holding of free, transparent and credible presidential elections in Venezuela.
