Liberals Silent On Fascist Dictator
It's amazing at how silent the Liberals and the Mainstream Media are over the recent despotic actions of a Fascist Dictator. I am speaking of course of Hugo Chavez and his decision to close the only remaining TV station in Venezuala which offers any criticism of his policies. And not only that, but his action comes in direct opposition to the wishes of 70% of Venezualans. The results have been days of rioting in Caracas Venezuala which have gone largely unnoticed here in the United States.
How can this be? It is unfathomable! If George Bush had closed merely ONE TV station in the United States which criticized his policies (let alone the LAST & ONLY station), there would be outrage! There would be protests! There would be strikes! There would be non-stop news reports from ALL the remaining stations and print outlets! Conservatives would join with Liberals to raise "holy hell"!
So how is it that we hear almost nothing of such things as this particular ARTICLE at Channel 4 News (UK)...
RIOTING IN CARACAS OVER TV STATION CLOSURE
Police in the Venezuelan capital Caracas are braced for further trouble this evening after two nights of rioting sparked by the closure of a popular television station. The opposition is accusing the government of President Hugo Chavez of censorship over the decision to revoke RCTV's licence, as Guillermo Galdos reports from Caracas. Some 53 years of broadcasting came to an end in just a few seconds at the main offices of RCTV in Caracas. Journalists, producers, actors and technical staff gathered inside the station to give an emotional farewell to the viewers. Outside the channel, bullets were fired during clashes between supporters and opponents of the governments decision not to renew RCTVs license.
It was the end of a tense weekend in Caracas. One poll found that more than 70% of Venezuelans were against the governments move, which RCTV and human rights groups say limits freedom of expression in the country. But followers of Chavez believe his revolution needs defending on the streets and through the media...

This is a flagrant attack on the 'Freedom of Speech' and 'Freedom of the Press'. Even FoxNews noticed how silent such bastions of First Amendment Rights like the New York Times have been on this issue...

The answer is unfortunately all too obvious. The New York Times and other liberal media outlets refuse to play up the fascist, anti-democratic policies of dictators like Hugo Chavez, because Chavez is a "SOCIALIST" fascist. Hugo Chavez is a "SOCIALIST" dictator. Hugo Chavez is a "SOCIALIST" tyrant. Hugo Chavez is a "SOCIALIST" criminal. That gives him a pass with the Mainstream Media... that and the fact that he is an anti-Bush fanatic [just like them].
So, for the New York Times and the other silent media outlets, it must be OK to squash 'Freedom of the Press' and 'Freedom of Speech'... so long as it's a "SOCIALIST" that's doing it. It must be OK to squash 'Freedom of the Press' and 'Freedom of Speech'... so long as it's not happening in THIS country.
What hypocrites! What partisans! What frauds! What scum!
