Hugo Chavez & the Anti-American Left

Now, I know that many on the Left like Chavez because he's a Marxist & all... but when your hero is shown in the photo below, don't you question your support for him?



Apparently not... and this demonstrates that the Left in America is more closely aligned with our enemies than with America itself. When your enemy features your book in an anti-American speech at the UN, don't you think you should perhaps rethink your positions?


From Hugo's speech to the UN, prominently featured on leftist site CounterPunch.org:

[...]

Noam Chomsky, one of the most prestigious American and world intellectuals, Noam Chomsky, and this is one of his most recent books, 'Hegemony or Survival: The Imperialist Strategy of the United States.'" [Holds up book, waves it in front of General Assembly.] "It's an excellent book to help us understand what has been happening in the world throughout the 20th century, and what's happening now, and the greatest threat looming over our planet.

The hegemonic pretensions of the American empire are placing at risk the very survival of the human species. We continue to warn you about this danger and we appeal to the people of the United States and the world to halt this threat, which is like a sword hanging over our heads. I had considered reading from this book, but, for the sake of time," [flips through the pages, which are numerous] "I will just leave it as a recommendation.

It reads easily, it is a very good book, I'm sure Madame [President] you are familiar with it. It appears in English, in Russian, in Arabic, in German. I think that the first people who should read this book are our brothers and sisters in the United States, because their threat is right in their own house.

The devil is right at home. The devil, the devil himself, is right in the house.

"And the devil came here yesterday. Yesterday the devil came here. Right here." [crosses himself] "And it smells of sulfur still today.

Yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, from this rostrum, the president of the United States, the gentleman to whom I refer as the devil, came here, talking as if he owned the world. Truly. As the owner of the world.

No, they agree with Chavez that Bush is Satan... and that America is a force of evil in the world. (Interesting to note that the UN also thought those were excellent points.) They constantly ask each other whether Bush will leave office willingly in 2008 or whether an armed uprising will be required. And hope and pray for impeachment or assassination. However, you never see similar calls for brutal tyrants and dictators like Chavez, Kim Jong Il, or Ahmenainadflajad of Iran. Nor are they particularly troubled by Hugo's apparent reluctance to step down once his term is scheduled to end. They think he's a force for good...

Read Chavez's speech in full... and keep in mind that the Lefty Moonbats in this country think this guy is right on target.

I have discussed the Left's love for Hugo in previous posts here... from encouraging consumers to buy gasoline from Venezuelan owned Citgo to

Anyone watching T.V. right now should tune to CNN or any other media whore station...was passing through the dial and saw Chavez on CNN...he's speaking live at the U.N. and absolutely eviscerating Bush and his foreign policy.

Example: While railing against "collateral damage," he said, "Crossfire happens in westerns when you shoot from the hip..."

OH!!! That's gonna leave a mark...

Tune in while he's still going folks...and he's probably going to pull a Castro...looooong and fiery...

He's on fire, people...

Neocon heads are exploding everywhere...

Comments below of course...

No, ManWithNoPoint... it's not neocon's heads that are exploding. It's American heads that are exploding over your apparently love for a man who actively supports Iran's nuclear ambitions.
