The crazy little chump dictator from Venezuela gave a speech today in front of the U.N.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez took his verbal battle with the United States to the floor of the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, calling President Bush “the devil.”
The impassioned speech by the leftist leader came a day after Bush and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sparred over Tehran’s disputed nuclear program but managed to avoid a personal encounter.
“The devil came here yesterday,” Chavez said, referring to Bush’s address on Tuesday and making the sign of the cross. “He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world.”
The leftist leader, who has joined Iran and Cuba in opposing U.S. influence, accused Washington of “domination, exploitation and pillage of peoples of the world.”
“We appeal to the people of the United States and the world to halt this threat, which is like a sword hanging over our head,” he said.
The transcript reads more like Cindy Sheehan psychobabble than that of a message from a leader of a country. It’s clear that Hugo wanted to make news with this speech, especially after yesterday’s rant from Iran’s Ahmadinejad. Well, he made news alright. Some folks are laughing the whole thing off as nothing more than the ravings of a two-bit lunatic. Still others are ignoring it altogether, as suggested by U.N. Ambassador John Bolton.
Ambassador John Bolton told The Associated Press that Chavez had the right to express his opinion, adding it was “too bad the people of Venezuela don’t have free speech.”
“I’m just not going to comment on this because his remarks just don’t warrant a response,” Bolton said. “Serious people can listen to what he had to say and if they do they will reject it.”
Reject it, yes. Ignore it? That’s hard to do. I mean really, where’s the outrage? Where’s the condemnation from members of congress? When someone publicly calls the President of the United States the “Devil”, our government needs to stand up and unite behind our leader and our Democracy!
Oops, sorry. For a moment I forgot about the like minded Democrats and left wingers out there who applaud Chavez for verbalizing their beliefs. And then there are the RHINOS who are too afraid to stand beside the president. Then all we have left are the millions of vacant Americans who don’t know who the president is.
