Never Forget How Prominent Liberals Praised Hugo Chavez

Nicolas Maduro following Hugo Chavez was as inevitable as Stalin following Lenin or a Julius Malema type following not long after Nelson Mandela. Venezuela’s tailspin into totalitarianism and economic ruin began the day Chavez took power. Yet liberal celebrities praised Chavez effusively, precisely for the sort of policies that led to the nightmare currently unfolding in what was recently the wealthiest country in Latin America. A few examples:

(Chávez) is a fascinating guy. He’s done… incredible things for the 80% of the people that are very poor there.
—Sean Penn

[L]ook at the positive changes that have happened economically, that have happened in all of South America because of Chávez, Kirchner…
—Oliver Stone

Hugo Chavez declared the oil belonged 2 the ppl. He used the oil $ 2 eliminate 75% of extreme poverty, provide free health & education 4 all
—Michael Moore

Venezuela is seriously conquering poverty by emphatically rejecting the Neo Liberal policies of the world’s financial institutions.
—Jeremy Corbyn

These quotes relieve us of any obligation to try to take these malevolent fools seriously.

Every leftist revolution has a Maduro lurking in the wings.
