In the 19th part of my series in which people seem to be one thing but are actually another, Venezuelan anti-American communist dictator Hugo Chavez continues to look more and more like Joseph Stalin every day. (In part 18, the Conservative government created budget 2007-2008 in which spending increased and income taxes were not lowered, making the Conservative Party appear as though they were what I call Liberal Party Too—a party of women committee members appealing to feminist women).
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) – President Hugo Chavez warned his supporters on Friday that anyone voting against his proposed constitutional changes would be a “traitor,” rallying his political base before a referendum that would let him seek unlimited re-election in 2012 and beyond.
Brandishing a little red book listing his desired 69 revisions to Venezuela’s charter, Chavez exhorted his backers to redouble their efforts toward a victorious “yes” vote in the Dec. 2 ballot.
“He who says he supports Chavez but votes ‘no’ is a traitor, a true traitor,” the president told an arena packed with red-clad supporters. “He’s against me, against the revolution and against the people.”
His speech followed the recent high-profile defection of his former Defense Minister Gen. Raul Baduel, a longtime ally who called the president’s proposed reforms a “coup.” Others have also broken with the Chavista movement in recent months, including politicians of the small left-leaning party Podemos.
Chavez’s opponents accuse him of concentrating power and seeking to be president-for-life like his close friend Fidel Castro of Cuba.
See blog entry regrading Canada’s state-owned and state-run CBC interview last week with rabid Bush-hating Chavez lover (and communist) Harry Belafonte last week in their fluffy Belafonte validation piece. And do watch for a possible upcoming 6-part series on the CBC’s “Passionate Eye” program (where the passion’s socialism!) highlighting the positive reforms that the benevolent Chavez has provided his people, including taking over television stations and making them state-owned and state-run.
