Hugo Chavez : "Yesterday, the devil came to the UN, and today, it still smells of sulfur and Bush"

category roscommon | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Saturday September 23, 2006 02:27author by Elaine Murphy - Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign Report this post to the editors

"Chavez held up a copy of the book, Hegemony or Survival by MIT Professor Noam Chomsky"

Chavez : "As Chomsky says here clearly and in depth, the American empire is doing all it can to consolidate its hegemonic system of domination, and we cannot allow them to do that. We cannot allow world dictatorship to be consolidated. The world tyrant’s statement -- cynical, hypocritical, full of this imperial hypocrisy, from the need they have to control everything -- they say they want to impose a democratic model, but that's their democratic model. It's the false democracy of elites, and I would say a very original democracy that's imposed by weapons and bombs and firing weapons. What a strange democracy. Aristotle might not recognize it, or others who are at the root of democracy. What type of democracy do you impose with marines and bombs?"

Full story of St. Chavez reading the riot act to demonic Bush on Democracy Now link !.

Chavez = Caudillo

Chomsky = Coffee-table intellectual

Bush = Not worth wasting your time on, unless you happen to have serious problems at home, because Bush is an easy target and we all know that policy or decision does not flow from him...

Ever spend any time wandering Caracas people? I have.

I'd suggest Senor Chavez would do well to actually concentrate on the homefront...

Congressman Charles Rangel who for 35 years has represented Harlem in the U.S. house of representatives said of Chavez:

I want to express my extreme displeasure with statements by the President of Venezuela attacking U.S. President George Bush in such a personal and disparaging way during his remarks at the United Nations General Assembly.

It should be clear to all heads of government that criticism of Bush Administration policies, either domestic or foreign, does not entitle them to attack the President personally.

George Bush is the president of the United States and represents the entire country. Any demeaning or public attacks against him are viewed by Republicans, Democrats, and all Americans as an attack on all of us.

I feel that I must speak out now since the Venezuelan government has been instrumental in providing oil at discounted prices to people in low income communities who have suffered increases in rent as heating oil prices have risen sharply. By offering this benefit to people in need, Venezuela has won many friends in poor communities of New York and other states. I am surprised that American oil companies have not stepped up to provide that kind of assistance to the poor.
