Hugo Chavez, the True Voice of the Democratic Party

I thought Cindy Sheehan was the true voice of the Democratic Party, but now perhaps it’s Hugo Chavez. The President of Venezuela addressed the United Nations and said many things that progressives would agree with. Perhaps, he said it even better than Cindy Sheehan.

President Hugo Chavez Delivers Remarks at the U.N. General Assembly
Wednesday, September 20, 2006

His comments included:

- President George W. Bush is the devil
- Everyone should read the book "Hegemony or Survival: The Imperialist Strategy of the United States” by Noam Chomsky
- Bush addressed the UN “ talking as if he owned the world”
- A psychiatrist should analyze Bush’s statements
- If made into a movie, the title should be "The Devil's Recipe."
- “the American empire is doing all it can to consolidate its system of domination. And we cannot allow them to do that. We cannot allow world dictatorship to be consolidated.”
- “They say they want to impose a democratic model. But that's their democratic model. It's the false democracy of elites, and, I would say, a very original democracy that's imposed by weapons and bombs and firing weapons.”
- “Wherever he looks, he sees extremists.”
- “I have the feeling, dear world dictator, that you are going to live the rest of your days as a nightmare because the rest of us are standing up, all those who are rising up against American imperialism”
- “The government of the United States doesn't want peace. It wants to exploit its system of exploitation, of pillage, of hegemony through war.”

Anything here, a true Progressive would disagree with?

Bush may not actually be the Devil but...having committed 9-11, his being a closet-queen draft-dodger, his father having been in on the Kennedy assassination and IranContra, and his grandfather's having been Hitler's banker, certainly "qualifies" Bush as a nodal point of the Anti-Christ.
