As Venezuela continues its descent into chaos, the world is getting a front row seat to what Socialism does to a country. In the middle of the night, two opposition leaders, Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma, were forcibly removed from their homes.

ABC News reports:

Two of Venezuela’s leading opposition figures were taken away from their homes by the country’s intelligence service early Tuesday morning, according to their families.

Family members posted videos of opposition leaders Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma being detained and claimed that Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro should be held responsible for whatever happened to them.

“12:27 am: The time when the dictatorship kidnaps Leopoldo at my house,” Lopez’s wife, Lilian Tintori, tweeted in Spanish.

“They just took Leopoldo from the house. We do not know where he is or where he is being taken. Maduro is responsible if something happens to him,” she wrote in a separate tweet.

Tintori also shared a video that appeared to show Lopez being pushed into a vehicle marked “SEBIN,” an abbreviation for Venezuela’s intelligence agency.

Ledezma’s daughter, Vanessa Ledezma, shared similar footage on Tuesday morning, writing in Spanish: “I hold Nicolas Maduro responsible for my father’s life … the sebin just dragged him away, we don’t know where he is. Let the whole world know!”

The Trump Administration released a statement condemning the illegitimate elections.

The US promised “strong and swift” action against the architects of the authoritarianism.
