Hugo To Fidel: “Careful Or We’ll Be On Obama’s Right!”

3 06 2009

(POST UPDATED BELOW) Many a truth is said in jest via Al-Reuters:

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday that he and Cuban ally Fidel Castro risk being more conservative than U.S. President Barack Obama as Washington prepares to take control of General Motors Corp.

“Comrade Obama! Fidel, careful or we are going to end up to his right,” Chavez joked on a live television broadcast.

Holy $#*^ he called him “comrade.”  If Rush Limbaugh did that, MSNBC would start talking about oxycontons within the hour.

UPDATE: From the incredibly liberal Pravda, a scary view from the outside, that we should all take into account because we need to pay attention to the rest of the world:

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”.  Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes.  Should we congratulate them?

I’m wondering if the American left will ever allow conservatives to call them “socialists” without smearing their character and marginalizing their reputations in some sort of reverso-witch-hunt maneuver, which ends up typecasting the accuser.

All these international lefties made me realize; ripping liberals for being Marxists is kind of like me talking about your mom.  I really can’t get away with it unless we go legit she’s my mom.





Ten “Suspected Gunmen” Paralyze City Of 19Million

It seems there might have been only 10 terrorists in the most recent Mumbai attacks. If true, it’s not only lucky, as thousands could have died from a larger assault, but it’s a serious embarrassment for the Indian military.  This report suggests policemen within shooting range, neglected to fire at the terrorists during the rampage.  I have a feeling legally armed citizens in Texas could have settled a similar threat faster than the 3 days it took India.  Just don’t go expecting any corporate media outlets to start pushing “conceal to carry” laws.

This story should remind everyone about the damage a small unit of terrorists can inflict on open societies where neighborly trust and commerce prevail.  I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that liberals continue to misdiagnose the problem.  Half the time, they argue that Al-Qaeda is disorganized and that the threat is overblown.  The other half, when at least admitting a problem, think it’s a police matter and not a military one.

To those who hold either mindset, you need to understand that just because Al-Qaeda means, “the base,” doesn’t mean they have 8:00am conference calls with every one of the tens of millions of radicalized Muslims on the planet.  You are correct though.  There is indeed something that binds Al Qaeda with these people.  A way for them to all be united and informed.  A tacit understanding that motivates and guides them.  A manual for life and a handbook with all the answers.  Figure it out. Besides, you don’t agree with profiling or wiretaps anyways, and this is an international issue being financed in Saudi Arabia and Iran.  So beyond good old “blue” diligently supporting Uncle Sam, the only local involvement we suggest is a capable Americanization plan for new immigrants.

By the way, the headline was a derived from a real quote made by an international wire service with a diseased, leftist agenda.

Melanie Phillips lays it out in her, “Reverting to type” piece.  And as usual, Mark Steyn drives it home as well in his, “Just another front.”
