ONE RULE FOR HUGO

Hugo Chavez in New York, 2006:

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.

I think we could call a psychiatrist to analyze yesterday’s statement made by the president of the United States. As the spokesman of imperialism, he came to share his nostrums, to try to preserve the current pattern of domination, exploitation and pillage of the peoples of the world.

And Hugo’s latest idea:

President Hugo Chavez said Sunday that foreigners who publicly criticize him or his government while visiting Venezuela will be expelled from the country.

    1. Having a face like a hatful of monkeys arseholes tends to make one a mite sensitive. Terrible breath too.

    1. “Chavez’s foes say the populist former paratrooper has mismanaged the country and become increasingly autocratic, while his supporters accuse the opposition of trying to mount a coup.”

    1. I suppose one ought to be glad that he will only toss you out of the country if you displease him.  I wonder how long it will be before that changes to imprisonment.

      Of course, he doesn’t need to be so…er…diplomatic with his own people.  He can just imprison them without all the hoopla.

      These guys are always the same, aren’t they.  They follow the same pattern every time.  How long before the world catches on and stops letting them get away with it?

      Sadly all they need to do is say “the idea works and is good, it just hasnt been done properly yet” and a whole new generation of sheep follow the judas goat up the slaughterhouse ramp again…

      *So tell us, Huges, what happens to locals who publicly criticise you and your government?

      * before I read the comments.

    1. Agreed -nothing but a fat ugly piece of pigshit…… but he is sitting on a bigshit pot of oil. And HE OWNS IT!!!  Forget any dreaming about sending in the Marines -won’t happen.

      One thing all true conservatives should be doing is trying everything we can to get the petroleum monkey off our back.
      I, like many others, would rather have a Hummer than a Corolla -but I know the black stuff aint going to be any cheaper than it is now.
      I don’t know of too many oil owners who are friends of western pluralist democracy.

      Sorry, forgot our good mates the saudis!!

    1. Old mate Hugo’s finished chapter 1 of the Dictator’s Handbook. Not long now until he gets to chapter 4, about exterminating your enemies, and chapter 7, about world domination. Chapter 10’s better, though. That’s when everybody else hits back.

    1. Chavez and Mugabe are warming as favourites for the next round of the ‘Choice is Right’ and who gets the third eye.

      I think Howard should try this. No more Fisk, Sheehan, assorted invitees of ‘their’ ABC and Fairfax, Pilger etc.

      This concept has merit. Let’s workshop it….

    1. “President Hugo Chavez said Sunday that foreigners who publicly criticize him or his government while visiting Venezuela will be expelled from the country.”

      I suspect it will not be long before foreigners will not be permitted to enter Venezuela.

      Especially those who are inclined to tell the truth about the worlds latest up and coming dictator and the disaster he is in the process of creating.

    1. #5 kae, One can only imagine what will happen to locals who do not want to play Hugo’s socialist game.

      From Stalin to Saddam to Mugabe there have been millions of “missing” people.

      Hugo’s hero Fidel has no doubt disposed of his fair share of dissidents.

    1. #15 Dave, there is no doubt that Castro has disposed of his share of dissidents:

      The rerally disgusting thing is the large number of useful idiots who speak lying denials of these atrocities.

    1. “How long are we going to allow a person _ from any country in the world _ to come to our own house to say there’s a dictatorship here, that the president is a tyrant, and nobody does anything about it?”

      I agree completely, your Dictatorship, Sir.

      Unfortunately you just did the same thing. OH, Cindy wants you again. I’m sure the two of you will be very happy in Zimbabwe. I can just see it now, happy as all get out, in your lovely little mud thatch hut.

    1. Stay tuned for next week’s exciting episode of Celebrity Boxing featuring Hugo Chavez vs Rage Boy.

      Fight starts at 8, with pre-fight press conference at 7.

    1. Mark my word, this lunatic will one day wind up decking himself out in a comic-opera field marshall’s uniform (complete with cocked hat and ostrich plume), watching executions on closed-circuit television while he munches his breakfast egg, and end by being assassinated at the hands of some skittish senior officer apprehensive about his own chances in the next purge.

    1. #16 Thanks for the information.It is truly horrible.

      As I suggested, no-one will ever know the full extent of such atrocities under these pathetic dictatorships. Dictatorships and abhorrent regimes which are so often worshipped by so many on the left of Australian politics.

    1. We need Bugs Bunny to give his insightful commentary on the Chavez regime.  Probably be something like “What a maroon.” Yosemite Sam as Chavez.

    1. Gee, I wonder how this will be spun by the same free-speech-for-me-but-not-for-thee folks who defended Chavez when he shut down that opposition broadcaster a while back.

      And it will be spun.  You know it will be spun . . .

    1. It says alot about a man who manages to use the words rostrum AND nostrums in just two paragraphs of text. And none of it is good.

    1. I wonder how long it will be before all foreigners will have to be accompanied by state “minders”. It’s most likely the next chapter in Chavez’s book title “The Idiots Guide To Dicktators.”

    1. #22 – Dave Wane, such scum are also put on pedestals & worshipped by the leftards in the good ol USA. It would be amusing – if pitiful –  if it wasn’t so damn frightening…
