Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez delivered a stinging speech at the United Nations today, calling President Bush "the devil" and said that Bush should see a shrink. He said the podium still smelled of sulfur from Bush's speech there the previous day.
 



abcnews.go.com

UNITED NATIONS Sep 20, 2006 (AP)— Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez took his verbal battle with the United States to the floor of the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, calling U.S. President George W. Bush "the devil."

"The devil came here yesterday," Chavez said, referring to Bush's address on Tuesday. "He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world."

The leftist leader, who joined Iran last week in an alliance against U.S. influence, accused Washington of "domination, exploitation and pillage of peoples of the world."

This was a good speech for the peasants, but bad for Chavez. It made him look like a raving lunatic. He had the opportunity to use the forum for advancement of human rights, but instead, used it to act the fool.

He also made the sign of the cross at the podium. And the president or Iran offered prayers during his time. Imagine if Bush had prayed at the podium - the outcry would be swift and loud.

You mean like the outcry for Chavez calling Bush the devil?

I mean, say what one will about Chavez, he hasn't bombed any country recently.

And, aside from the name calling, he had it just about right. Lets face it, if he hadn't said that Bush was the devil, he wouldn't be getting nearly as much attention. And he didn't look like a raving lunatic BTW.

Maybe Hugo has seen the Bohemian Grove video and read about skull and bones.

You gotta admit, that horned owl hand symbol is a little unusual.

Outcry, lol more like crying from laughter, that was one funny speech, made Islamic nut jobs in comparison look almost normal, and that is no small task.

A really intersting aspect of the speech is that Chavez denounces the UN as weak and irrelevant. If leftist socialists are starting to reject the UN, and people on the right have been doing so for a long time already, maybe there really is a chance that it will be broken up, or at least not even considered as being able to enforce peace.

I don't think the US has officially responded, have they? I thought they made a decision not to; maybe I'm wrong. But to ignore him would be the appropriate response, much as an adult would do to an unruly child.

So Chavez hasn't bombed any country lately. He hasn't had any planes flying into his skyscrapers, either.

In Other News...

The Devil, in a rare New York press conference, denounced what he described as "baseless character assassination" on the part of President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.

"It's not that I have anything against either President Chavez or President Bush," he said, "indeed, I consider both of them to be close personal friends. However, I do have a reputation to uphold, and my many, many staff attorneys have unanimously advised me to speak out publicly against this unwarranted attack on my brand and market share."

He went on to add that he disagrees with the denunciations made by Chavez regarding the United Nations, referring to the international body as his "home away from home in New York" and "a great place to meet new friends".

Later, apparently believing his microphone had been turned off, the Devil quietly remarked that President Chavez "had better watch his step" because he was "behind in his payments".

Telephone calls to Hell requesting clarification of the Devil's remarks were not returned.

Sorry people but I was just laughing my hart out, specially when he did the sign of the cross, something so Spanish and done when we feel that is danger against our souls.


I admired Chavez cunning or perhaps for many stupidity but nerveless the man go cojones.

When a person is speaking in front of the UN, it is not suppose used for personal attacks against people and name calling the way Chavez used his time at the podium. Is this the way any country would like their leader to speak at a UN General Assembly, I don't think so.

He also said, that standing where President Bush was standing the day before at the podium, "In this very spot it smells like sulfur still."

The UN is where leaders represent their citizens, it is not the place for personal attacks. Apparently there was laughter at some of his personal "attacks" on Bush.

This was the wrong place and the wrong time for this sort of talk, do you really think that representatives from all over the world wanted to hear his tirade against Bush? Rantings from somebody who is sure the US wants to invade his country?

Article

“We need militaries that don’t trample over [us] and that don’t sell themselves to the empire”, Chavez said. “If the empire of the United States thinks to come here and invade Venezuela, you can be certain that the 100-year war will begin and we will defeat the North American empire on this land”, Chavez added, to loud applause.


All his rantings are from somebody who is paranoid the US is after him.

Article

New Delhi: Denouncing the United States in the strongest terms, Venezuela President Hugo Chavez on Saturday alleged that the Bush administration was hatching a conspiracy to assassinate him.


But at least he can speak his mind.

Article

"He is a terrorist and a communist," says Gustavo Ramírez, 32, a student who showed up at the gathering. "He has people in the country going hungry, and he wants to ensure that there's no freedom of expression."


And it appears that with his ties to Cuba, Chavez is starting to fashion his government after Castro's Cuba.

Article


Though opposition sympathizers frequently levy similar accusations against their embattled left-wing president, Ramirez's condemnation was not aimed at the embattled Chavez, but rather at Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

"President Chavez wants to turn Venezuela into another Cuba," says Ramirez, "but we can't let that happen."

This guy has the balls to speak infont of the United Nations and speak of evil



Why doesnt he speak of the evil that his friend Fidel Castro did to inocent people after he won indepence.
Why does he not speak of the evil of Communisim.
Or of the evil of his nations Drug Economy.

This man has no right to speak in the United Nations.
WE as in the US govn't donate more than half of the complet donations that the UN recieves,Then we have Kofee Anan that sympthises with terrorists that kill inocent women and children.

That is real EVIL

Apparently (according to Amadinejad's blog) Chavez and the Iran PM have a bet.. the first one to be indicted for war crimes has to run a lap naked around the international court. Now that seems to come from guys with nothing to hide. I don't see bush doing these kinds of jokes while he's trying to abolish the Geneva conventions and the Bills of Rights. Anyways, the NAM (over 100 countries) usually refers to the USA as the Great Satan. I think there was a post earlier about info on perhaps Barbara Bush was a daughter of Anton Levey.. ?

To the contrary. I think their words show the world the total lack of character that they have.

As far as not debating them, welcome to the real world. The Heavyweight Champion of the World in boxing does not give a title shot to every pug with a broken nose. Same goes for debating world leaders.

Are we living in a world where what is right is becoming wrong and what is wrong is becoming right? Pretty scary if you ask me.

I agree. Next he'll be telling us that God told him to invade Afghanistan and that torture is a good thing. Maybe he'll even lose proper command of his own native language.

Exactly. The bit about sulphur was priceless!

Right. But I don't know about you, if he did I would be right behind him when he invaded three sovereign nations in response and completely ignored the perpetrator.

Precisely! The UN is a hallowed institution whose protocols should be respected by all, and that includes the proper format for what you can say and when you can say it. Personal attacks on one man's foreign policy which effects the entire globe are simply not kosher. Small, unimportant matters like UN security council resolutions denying permission to invade other nations are a different matter though - those are throw-away matters and can be ignored with impunity.

I watched it and there was. There were many chuckles around the hall when the sulphur line came out. And there was large applause at the end. The UN still appreciates good comedy I see.

Exactly. The right to speak at the UN is decided by how much money you pay to it. That's exactly why it was set up. Either pay up, or shut up, I say. In fact, I don't know why the US puts up with having the UN on its own soil. Chavez was right: the UN HQ should be moved out of the US and all US funding for it should be cut off. Bush can bomb democracy into the Middle East WITHOUT their help.

Yes, if only the rest of the world were sophisticated and advanced enough to understand that international relations are exactly the same as pro boxing. And if Mike Tyson wants to rape women and bite people's ears off, if you're not a heavyweight champ too, then don't even thinking about raising any objections.

I hate to say it because I worship the man and his posse, but George W. Bush...you just got served.

You have to admire his bravery, Chavez refers to Noam Chomsky's book, not sure which one, but I agree everyone should have a listen to what Chomsky has been saying for years.
Also I would like to recommend Arundhati Roy "we" Education in Music video form
Please watch. We
warning Is graphic at times.
