From the enough-rope-for-PSFs-to-hang-themselves files:
“We’ve got Chavez in Venezuela with a lot of oil money. He’s a person who was elected legally, just as Adolf Hitler was elected legally, and then consolidated power…”
Is Rumsfeld being provocative? No doubt. Is the statement, strictly speaking, true? Sure.
Compare and contrast with:
“The imperialist, genocidal, fascist attitude of the U.S. president has no limits. I think Hitler would be like a suckling baby next to George W. Bush.”
It takes real talent to make Rummie look comparatively circumspect. Way to go, Huguito!

We’ve been able to hang on for 21 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) closing shop, something we’re looking to avoid at all costs. Your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
