If there was any doubt in anyone's mind about the nature, mindset, political worldview, et al of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, there shouldn't be any doubt now. He showed his true colors when giving his speech before the United Nations today.
Breitbart.com reports (in part):
"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez took his verbal battle with the United States to the floor of the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, calling President Bush "the devil."Read the rest HERE.
"The devil came here yesterday," Chavez said, referring to Bush's address on Tuesday and making the sign of the cross. "He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world."
Standing at the podium, Chavez quipped that a day after Bush's appearance: "In this very spot it smells like sulfur still."
Chavez held up a book by American leftist writer Noam Chomsky "Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance" and recommended it to everyone in the General Assembly.
The leftist leader, who has joined Iran and Cuba in opposing U.S. influence, accused Washington of "domination, exploitation and pillage of peoples of the world."
"We appeal to the people of the United States and the world to halt this threat, which is like a sword hanging over our head," he said.
Chavez drew tentative giggles at times from the audience, but also some applause when he called Bush the devil."
Now, how will the mainstream media report this...spin this...against Bush?
