“I mean, we’ve got Chavez in Venezuela with a lot of oil money,” Rumsfeld added. “He’s a person who was elected legally – just as Adolf Hitler was elected legally – and then consolidated power and now is, of course, working closely with Fidel Castro and Mr. Morales and others.”
So says the Secretary of Idiocy.
One question Mr. Rumsfeld.
If, as you say, that Chavez is similar to Hitler because he was elected legally and then consolidated power, then what does make Bush, who won the election illegally in 2000? Well I suppose that would make him WORSE THAN HITLER you dumb bastard. And talk about consolidation of power?!? Where have we seen more of it than in the Bush administration and their strong-arm techniques around the world and here at home, and there ever less transparent actions!!! To compare Chavez, or Morales or even Castro to Hitler is obtuse, offensive and just plain moronic. You cannot go around talking about democracy this, democracy that, and then when leaders whom you and the administration don’t like are elected, talk about their likeness to Hitler. They were elected legally, more than your fearless leader can say, and the reason leftist governments are being elected at quickening pace in Latin America is BECAUSE of the sort of covert, democracy killing actions that the populations of Latin America have seen enacted by Republican American government especially in the Reagan administration, but also in the Bush administration. What worries me is the way this country creeps closer and closer to a police state. Perhaps you should keep your nose here in the ever-worsening sphere of American politics, rather than making rash, stupid statements about Chavez, et. al in Latin America. Perhaps you should watch them to see how democracy really works you arrogant pig.
So ends the gospel.
