Thousands Turn Out To Protest Chomsky's #1 Fan

According to the BBC, tens of thousands of protesters flooded the streets of Venezuela to protest Hugo Chavez, and support his opponent, Manual Rosales:

Tens of thousands of people have marched through the Venezuelan capital, Caracas, in support of the main opposition candidate, Manuel Rosales.

Mr Rosales will face President Hugo Chavez in December's presidential poll.

The march, which filled the main avenues of the city centre, was the biggest opposition rally Venezuela has seen since early 2004.

Then, protesters made an unsuccessful bid to oust Mr Chavez from power in a recall referendum.

Young and old took to the streets to throw their weight behind the campaign of Mr Rosales, a middle-class Social Democrat who governs the state of Zulia, on the Colombian border.

Many claimed that they were seeking liberty and democracy and that made Mr Rosales their only option:

"The problem of the opposition is that before we had a lot of candidates and people couldn't make up their minds whom to support," one woman said.

"Right now we have just one candidate and I believe that we have a better shot if we have just one candidate against Chavez."

For some it was simply a day out to enjoy the sunshine, but for most it was a chance to listen to a speech by Mr Rosales, who declared that Venezuela was "at a crossroads".

Mr Rosales condemned what he called the cheque book diplomacy of Mr Chavez, accusing him of giving away Venezuela's oil wealth to foreign powers.

If Mr Rosales can keep up this kind of pressure against his rival, the election results may not necessarily be a foregone conclusion.

But for now, Mr Chavez still enjoys a clear lead in opinion polls because of a sense of loyalty that poor and working-class voters feel towards him.

Let's all hope and pray Rosales wins, and Hugo goes home to continue reading his Chomsky Reader. If not, well, then we're just going to have to let the moonbat continue to sit down there, and think up conspiracy theories regarding the US. Remember, this is the guy who accused us of plotting a coup against him earlier this year. (This is what usually happens to those who look to Chomsky as something close to a human being rather than the slimy piece of garbage he is.)

But let's not kid ourselves in this. Hugo Chavez is a Communist dictator who is a demon on his people. But an election isn't going to change things. Why? For the same reason that Saddam Hussein always enjoyed winning 100% of the electorate in Iraq: Dictators don't give up power. They always win because they disenfrancise the entire nation. And if anyone thinks that chavez won't do that in December, think again. And when the dust settles, Jimmy Carter will put down his hammer, and mosey on down to Venezuela to certify that as another "exercise in honest elections" or some other worthless talking point. (How did Jimmy become such a dupe? Or is it that socialist, globalist mindset that has him looking so foolish most of the time?)

And if this protest is to be taken at the pictures I've seen on on the 'Net, then Chavez will be byuying body bags next instead of tanks firearms, and other assorted military hardware. He is in the middle of a massive military build-up, and that has a couple of his neighbors worried. (Wouldn't you be, just a little? Especially with his ties to Iran? Anyone really want toi see worried? Put a nuke in this Chomskyite's hands.)

I'm happy to see the people protesting him. It shows the world that these people still have a limited voice, and that they're as unhappy with him as many people around the world are. This guy is as nutty as Kim Jong-Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. It's not often that we have "three stooges" like this. And while it's pretty typical to make fun of them (especially the runt from North Korea) we need to remember that these people are dangerous. Chavez seems bent on making something out of his reign over Venezuela, Ahmadinejad wants nukes and Israel gone from EVERY map around the world, and the runt wants nukes, but it's seemingly for attention.

Do their antics make them any less of a danger? Absolutely not. They are dangerous, and they need to be dealt with. I do wish we weren't dealing with Venezuela. It's a Communist nation where the US dollars flooding in aren't going to the people. They're going to keep Chavez in power, and the people at his mercy. Again, let's all hope and pray that Rosales wins this election, though I'm not holding my breath.
