Media Mourn Brutal Dictator Chavez

With the death of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, the left-wing mainstream media and a few Democrat allies came out of the woodwork to mourn the human rights violator extraordinaire. Democrat Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY) led the way with a tweet suggesting that Chavez “was a leader that understood the needs of the poor. He was committed to empowering the powerless. R.I.P. Mr. President.”

Former President Jimmy Carter followed suit, mourning Chavez’s “commitment to improving the lives of his fellow countrymen,” and stating that he would “be remembered for his bold assertion of autonomy and independence for Latin American governments and for his formidable communications skills and personal connection with supporters in his country and abroad to whom he gave hope and empowerment.” As for his Chavez’s destruction of freedom of the press, nationalization of industry, and alliances with murderous dictators like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Carter had nothing to say.

Sean Penn, of course, spoke up to praise Chavez as a “great hero.”
