Following a long series of Tweets pushing for regime change in Venezuela, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has topped them off with a before and after death photo of deposed Libyan Prime Minister Muammar Gaddafi—implying the current Venezuelan leader will suffer a similar fate.

Genie Energy, an Israeli-backed energy corporation whose founder is close to Rubio, acquired Florida-based Mirabito Natural Gas in 2017. National Security Adviser John Bolton made controversial statements on Fox News about the U.S. having an interest in Venezuela’s oil.

Rubio’s Tweet has received widespread criticism, even from mainstream outlets, that view it as going beyond the pale.

The photo depicts Gaddafi's lynching at the hands of U.S.-led regime change in Libya, which led to instability in the region and even an increase in slave trade on the African continent.

The Tweet also follows similar comments that call on Venezuelan guards on the Colombian border to defect from Maduro's government.

Rubio even received criticism from the Palmer Report—and other sites not typically known for taking such stances.
