Moron Hugo Chavez

Still a Denier:

But fresh depths have since been plumbed. The Venezuelan government, to judge from recent events, officially regards Bush as a genocidal Nazi who arranged the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to justify aggression against other nations.

In a speech Tuesday, Chávez criticized the decision of an Iraqi court to sentence former dictator Saddam Hussein to the death penalty. ''If sentencing is to be done,'' Chávez said, ``the first one to be given the most severe sentence this planet has to offer should be the president of the United States, if we're talking about genocidal presidents.''


Yes, indeed, sentence first, trial afterwards, as the Red Queen commands!

We should have had Chavez arrested when he was in the US to visit the UN. We should have shown it around the world, and put Chavez on trial and shown all of his crimes. Then we should have shipped him down to Guantanamo Bay and left him to rot. Maybe we can still do it. I certainly wish for it.

From the linked article -

"Escarrá said the comparison might indeed be considered unfair -- but to Hitler, not to Bush. ''Hitler was a babe in arms compared to Bush,'' he asserted."

-Wow. Insanity reigns.

A mouse roars. Chavez just wants attention. Even negative attention, so that his countrymen might feel "proud" of "standing up" to the big bad U.S.A.
Kinda like when Argentina (in a fit of nationalistic pride) decided that they needed the Faulklands/Malvinas for strategic sheep purposes.

Yeah, Eddie does. Though I think that the "troothers" have earned the lead place for "The Psychotic Bastard" religion.

Yeah, they could all wear black shirts and walk around Manhattan offering cake or death.

This isn't new. They gave former homeless janitor now "explosives expert" Willy Rodriguez the red carpet treatment earlier this year. Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro, whose juvenile rants almost make Chavez look dignified, is a long time 9/11 conspiracy theorist. He is said to have numerous denier videos, undoubtedly including Loser Change. Venezuelan state TV and Telesur (their "alternative" to CNN in Spanish) also broadcast several low-budget (and low-quality) anti-American films a week. The Spanish version of Loser Change has probably been shown.

Speaking of which, I'm going to Venezuela next month. For non-Chavista fanatics who may want to hear the other side of the story is there any debunker info in Spanish. My Spanish is adequate but I can get a little tongue-tied if it gets technical and it would be nice to have something in print or a URL.

"Hitler was a babe in arms compared to Bush," he asserted.

I'd ask twelve million Europeans what they thought of this statement, but they didn't return from the showers.

Ruining the good name of the Fenway Citgo sign.

Funny thing is Rumsfeld calls Chavez "Hitler" at a press conference, no big deal. State Department sponsors a coup to have Chavez overthrown, yawn. Chavez calls Bush the devil and nobody wants to buy his gas anymore.

I'll say it. Yankees are hypocrites.

Roger, the State Department did not "sponsor a coup". The Chavistas like to claim the 2002 attempted to coup was orchestrated from Washington but their "evidence" is diplomatic cables that suggest a coup was possible. Anyone reading the Venezuelan press would have known the same. The assertion is ridiculous.

More Latin American posturing. You don't think they actually BELIEVE this stuff, do you? It just plays well back home, 'El Presidente is tough, he stands up to feelthy Americanos'. Or something like that.

The rest of the the world just ought to ignore them.

If he went to Venezuela and in front of assembled world diplomats called Chavez "Hitler" you'd have a point.

Simon Please do us a favor and list below the crimes of President Chavez.

Feel free to support your statements regarding the failed coup attempt on Chavez.

Make sure you tell those poor communities that received discounted Citgo gasoline to shut the fuck up and pay top dollar like the rest of us.
Oh and you may want to state the same to the poor in Venezuela.

Care to provide evidence that states otherwise?

evidence uncovered during investigations in Venezuela by human rights organizations and international groups has found that extremist factions of the opposition movement in Venezuela conspired and executed the coup, planning the resulting deaths and injuries as their justification for the illegal usurpation of power.

Problem is the only reason he can offer "discounted gasoline" is because the entire infrastructure which he seized was built and maintained by western companies. He can afford to operate it cheaply for a while by skimping on maintenance and not developing any new programs. It won't last, and once it's over you can say bye-bye to Venezuela's oil infrastructure.

Alex, in response to your post:

Venezuela coup linked to Bush team Ed Vulliamy in New York
Sunday April 21, 2002

The failed coup in Venezuela was closely tied to senior officials in the US government, The Observer has established. They have long histories in the 'dirty wars' of the 1980s, and links to death squads working in Central America at that time.

You're quoting the observer?

Right. That's like quoting Judy Wood in order to "prove" that the WTC was demolished by Star Wars lasers.

I'm thinking venezuelanalysis.com, along with various human rights organizations, might be a bit more credible. But then again, YOU think that Jones' "scientific paper" is credible, so I don't expect you to understand why the Guardian is an inappropriate source in this case. You may as well quote Michael Moore.
