Venezuela’s Chavez says “GRINGOS GO TO HELL!”
The wannabe Venezuelan dictator for life & poster child for Bush bashing socialist dirtbags everywhere makes headlines again by calling Condoleezza Rice his “little girl” and telling Gringo’s to go to hell. Had an Elected Official from the US made similar remarks using racial epitaphs editorial pages all over the country would be demanding an official apology if not a resignation. Not so for the socialist Chavez who has continually interfered in domestic elections throughout South and Central America from Brazil to Mexico.
Chavez is also spending sizable quantities of his petrodollars in bulking up Venezuela’s military, and the real reason for this is not to fight off a possible U.S. invasion like he claims. His anti-U.S. posturing basically serves two purposes: Appease his population by creating an external cause for his country’s misfortunes, rather than looking inward for the cause of their problems, and creating an excuse for bulking up militarily. If you think that Chavez is buying Russian planes, helicopters and guns like there is no tomorrow because he wants to fight off the “gringo” invaders, you are dead wrong. In my opinion, the real reason for his military buildup is to counteract Brazil’s and Argentina’s natural leadership role in the region. Or that matter, to apply pressure any country in the region that might oppose his Bolivarian revolution designs for the continent.
CARACAS (Reuters) – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Sunday called the U.S. secretary of state “my little girl” and told Washington to “go to hell” after it questioned his plan to seek special powers to legislate by decree.
Chavez, a Cuba ally re-elected by a landslide in December, this month launched a campaign to consolidate power by nationalizing key industries, seeking expanded executive powers and pushing for unlimited presidential re-election.
A State Department spokesman on Friday described Chavez’s proposal to allow presidents to rule by decree as “a bit odd” in a democracy.
“That is a sacrosanct legal authority of Venezuela. Go to hell, gringos! Go home! Go home!” Chavez said during his weekly Sunday broadcast. “We’re free here, and every day we’ll be more free.”
