On Hugo’s Monkeyshines

"GOTCHA! didn't I!...HAH-HA!"

Fidel Castro came within a hair of igniting a worldwide nuclear war, aimed first at destroying the U.S.

Despite his bluster and monkeyshines, this last point was never in Hugo Chavez’ bucket list. Indeed it was the last thing he wanted. Shusssssh--keep this under your hat but: the U.S. is –by far--the biggest customer for Venezuelan oil. Hugo Chavez was our fourth largest oil supplier.

But that’s all behind the scenes. Now on stage we had a first-class vaudeville show:

"Yesterday the devil (President George Bush) came here! Right here. And it smells of sulfur still today....You are ignoramus, you are a burro, Mr Danger. You are a donkey, Mr Danger! You are a donkey, Mr George W Bush! You are a coward, Mr Bush, a killer, a perpetrator of genocide, an alcoholic, a drunk, a liar, an immoral person, Mr Danger. You are the worst, Mr Danger. The worst of this planet! A psychologically sick man, I know it!"

And the gallery ate it up.

Three years into power Castro had already murdered more political prisoners (out of a population of 6.5 million) than Hitler murdered (out of a population of 65 million) in his first six years. Ten years into power Castro had jailed and tortured at a higher rate than Stalin during his Great Terror. Fidel Castro’s lifelong dream as to destroy the U.S.--and came within a hair of it.

So given his teeeenzy attainments (by Castroite standards) in mass-murder, mass-torture, mass-terror and Anti-Americanism, its small surprise that Hugo Chavez amassed only a teeeeeenzy fraction of Castro’s affection from American liberals.

For simply saying the U.N. "smelt of sulfur," Chavez was censured by prominent New Yorkers. After twice trying to make the entire city smell of charred flesh, his mentor, Fidel Castro, got a reception to shame Simon and Garfunkel's in Central Park.

Our friends at Townhall help disseminate some items utterly unknown everyplace .0000000000000009 millimeters outside Miami-Dade borders.

(Pero fijense que tipo mas DESCARA'O, este Fontova!...como Chavez esta en las noticias--pues pone su nobre en el titulo del articulo!--que tiene casi NADA que ver con Chavez! En ves el articulo se trata casi todamente de las barbaridades de Fidel Castro!--y el muy sinverguenZON Fontova hasta encuantra manera de insultar a Jeff Flake en algo que los lectores enganados esperaban que se trataba de Chavez!)
