This must be why Oliver Stone made a loving documentary about him

Venezuela's Hugo Chávez:

“Arab civilization and our civilization, the Latin American one, are being summoned in this new century to play the fundamental role of liberating the world, saving the world from the imperialism and capitalist hegemony that threaten the human species. Syria and Venezuela are at the vanguard of this struggle.” (Link.)

Hilariously, idiot Stone's film portrait of him flopped where it shouldn't have -- Chávez's own backyard. Perhaps this is because real Venezuelans know the guy has become a quasi-Fidel Castro (who's also the subject of a Stone love-youmentary along with that other great humanitarian, Yasser Arafat) ... they're not mega-rich, elitist utopians like Stone -- who wouldn't even be allowed to do what he does in places like Venezuela, Cuba or Gaza without the very permission of the dictators he lionizes.

Amazing that an obviously bright guy just cannot grasp this.

Meanwhile, Variety rips Stone's love fest.

In semi-related news, Cuba has been elected vice-president of the U.N. Human Rights Council, with Miguel d’Escoto, "the old Sandinista foreign minister, and a classic anti-American and anti-Semite," appointed to the council’s advisory panel.

It's a damn funny world we inhabit.

Thanks for spending some time to talk about this, I really feel obviously about this and I really like to researching very much about this subject. Whenever possible, would you thoughts writing your site with even more info? It is extremely beneficial for me.
