Oliver Stone: Hugo Chavez Did for Venezuela What Obama is Doing for America
This is hilarious. I have CNN on one of my monitors here, and you may have heard that Hugo Chavez — the dictator and communist leader in Venezuela — is nearing room temperature. And this has the CNN people distressed. I mean, he’s a great socialist leader! He’s done great things to impoverish his people, but everybody’s equal down there. It’s cool. And, of course, with Chavez nearing the great reward, the Great Socialist in the Sky, they’re bringing on (in advance of his expiration) a bunch of tributes.
Normally they wait ’til people die to do tributes, but I guess they want Hugo to see this. Oliver Stone, who did a documentary on Hugo Chavez three years ago now, or two years ago, was very laudatory. Oliver Stone, who doesn’t like America much, is telling a very interested CNN all about Hugo Chavez. It’s just — I don’t know — fascinating to me. You have a major television network celebrating the life of a socialist-Marxist dictator as he nears death, with an American movie director on to sing his praises.
It’s a network that’s in last place and is supposedly making vast moves to become more mainstream. And who knows? This may be it. Hee-hee-hee.
