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.

    Moore was probably bought off with a lifetime pass to McDonald’s. That or free access to a man-boy club…

  3. StephaneDumas says:

    The big ham Moore had appeared recently in a British talk show.

    Meanwhile American Thinker posted this blog who mentionned then Sean Penn had gone silent about Venezuela on Twitter where people reminded that detail.

    Also never forget how cucks and RINOs were neverTrumpers and still working in secret to depose him. Go munch on Maxine Waters carpet you pathetic losers.

    Of course prominent liberals want all the power. Only their lies to the contrary are worse.

  6. ArmyAviator says:

    Liberal Democrats praised Hugo Chavez, like the praised Josef Stalin! What is the difference between a Liberal Socialist (Democrat) and a Communist?

  7. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Sometimes they are useful idiots. Most of the time they are simply idiots.

  8. Mr. Freemarket says:

    I’d be satisfied if the GOP represented an opposition party. That includes the President.

  9. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Communists tend to kill the opposition. Liberal Socialists simply encourage the killing.

  10. Richard Daniels says:

    How well populated the concentration camps become?
    The body count within the Party?
    Military conquest of its neighbors?
    Number of refugees created?
    Effectiveness of the secret police?

  11. Richard Daniels says:

    Oh wait! I know!
    How much the New York Times praises your regime and hides the mass murders?!

  12. ArmyAviator says:

    Like the NYT did for Stalin in the 20’s and for Hitler in the 30’s. Good points, all.

  13. Fred says:

    Penn should be happy now. 99% of the people are poor now. Oh! And starving.
