News from Caracastan: Bird-ghost of the divine Chavez returns

maduro_chavezghost

And now for a good dose of Latrine American magical realism

Deceased Venenozuelan dictator Hugo Chavez is at it again.  And so is his half-wit successor Nicolás Maduro.

At a celebration of ex-dictator Hugo Chavez's 60th birthday Maduro told the crowd that the "little bird" of Chavez's ghost had visited him again and revealed that the dead Chavez is very happy, full of love for his people, and grateful for their loyalty.  Maduro also jokingly asked his listeners "not to tell anyone."

This week Maduro also moved into the realm of sheer idolatry by naming Chavez the "eternal leader" "eternal commander" and "life-giving president" of Venenozuela's socialist party (PSUV).

ABC Spain has posted a video montage of very frightening gaffes by Maduro.  Some are very funny, even though they are all as scary as hell.  In one clip, we hear Maduro speak of Chavez as "The Christ, the Redeemer of the poor."   In another, he stumbles in a spectacular way as he tries to divinize his redistributionist policies, referring to Christ's miracle of  "los penes" (penises) instead of "los panes" (loaves of bread).

The Castro dynasty couldn't ask for a better puppet.
