the next step

Hugo Chavez is well on his way now. A while back we discussed how this socialist dictator is taking his steps down the same road so many others have troden before. Now it seems he has leaped several spaces ahead on the old "Dictator Pursuit" board game and has now decided that free speech is a major annoyance and needs to just be done away with, post haste.

"They hide behind a supposed freedom of speech," says Hugo, "I don't care what the oligarchs of the world say. We've shown that we aren't authoritarian or arbitrary.''

We spied on Chavez's to do list. Here is what we found:
"A. Blame everything on the media
B. Tell everyone that it's not my fault, I'm the good guy. Call them names."
So far so good...sounds pretty standard. Oh wait! What's this?
"C. Shut down the television stations that oppose me. Maybe jail them."
Ooohh. Not good H. Eliminate free speech. Not good. Oh wait, there's more...
"D. Pick up dry cleaning and milk."
Now before any of you wanna be lefties and mini-socialist who really have no idea what you want go nuts- remember this is the first step towards eliminating free speech altogether. Sure you could say that he isn't really trying to get rid of free speech, he's just not renewing contracts. Riiggghht. Just not renewing the contracts of those media outlets that disagree with him. Yes, they are first, but others will come. In this country we hope that multiple voices are out there, we reserve the right to respond to them and engage them when necessary to explain and put forth our own point of views. But, Hugo? Not Hugo!

So sez the wannabe Che:
"We can't keep giving concessions to a group of people who use television stations against us. Every day they broadcast messages of hate, of disrespect toward institutions, of doubt among us, rumors, psychological war to divide the nation."

Look, Hugo baby- just chill! Back home we call that CNN.

Oh, I know it's a penny here and a penny there, but look at me. I worked myself up from nothing to a state of extreme poverty.

A shepherd must tend his flock. And at times... fight off the wolves.

Hugo Chavez and the Bolivarian Revolution shows how popular a government can be when it actually cares about its people. Unlike the terror regime in Washington (total surveillance of all Americans, torture, disappearances, illegal invasions of defenseless countries, and 'signing statements' exempting the White House from any and all law, utter loyalty to corporatism, i.e. fascism in the purest sense), when a government actually helps its people with TANGIBLE aid as opposed to empty rhetoric and propaganda the people respond. Chavez has, in fact, done more for AMERICA'S poor (see: than our oil profit-bloated regime has. When a foreign head of state cares more about the fate of America's poor than the American government, obviously it is time for a change. --- Americans for Chavez,

How are the living conditions in his home country? I'm sure it's wonderful there. Since he's doing so much for the poor here he must have already abolished all poverty in his country or at least well on his way to doing so. He sounds so wonderful.He's like all the other visionary world leaders who have gone before. That whole shutting down of the TV stations thing is perfectly acceptable. I'm sure he would agree with that other humanitarian who said, "How fortunate it is for leaders that men do not think." So appropo.I'll never understand why common citizens need alternate viewpoints. If they just think like thier leaders do they would be just fine. I think that's what Hugo is trying to do. Like that famous, loving European leader once told us,"The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it." He just wants to make sure his people have the right info. What's so wrong with that? Sometimes, education is the worst thing, like another caring ruler once put it,"Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction." Mr. Anonymous, you needn't worry about your cause.Keep fighting here in America for the cause of Hugo Chavez. You may one day help our country to realize how special he is. And don't worry about the naysayers, do what Hugo would do. Quote a great historic leader (whom he seems to be patterned after) and tell them, "When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side," I calmly say, "Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community." As for Mr. Chavez himself he only needs to respond as that same leader once did with, "Who says I am not under the special protection of God?". Mr. Anonymous, I can sense your passion for Mr. Chavez and I personally think the Shelf may consider starting to take donations towards airfare for you and your family to go and see Hugo personally and maybe, if you're lucky, you can stay and begin a new life in that heavenly paradise that is Venezuela!....Oh and if you want more Hitler quotes, just google 'hitler quote' and a ton of pages just pop up for ya. Enjoy!! :)
