Jeff Spicoli, AKA Sean Penn, has sent out the call that any journalist calling the "President" of Venezuela a "Dictator" should be thrown in jail.
"Every day, this elected leader is called a dictator here, and we just accept it, and accept it" said Penn, winner of two Best Actor Academy Awards. "And this is mainstream media, who should - truly, there should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies."
So, the dope-smoking, woman-beating, photographer-attacking, jail-bird, hetero-phobic, Bush-hating, capitalist "ACTOR" Jeff Spicoli, thinks the First Amendment of the United States Constitution which guarantees freedom of speech and the press should be limited to leftist agnostics like himself, and a crime punishable by imprisonment for everyone else.
Well color me SHOCKED!
Just for fun, let's do a little review of the "accomplishments" of Mr. Chavez (or should I make that Dr. due to the multiple worthless honorary papers he has been given).
1. Military experience; Check
2. Failed Coup d'etat; Check
3. Imprisoned for attempted illegal government overthrow; Check
4. Development of new, locally oriented, Socialist political philosophy based on Marxism; Check
5. Anti-Capitalist, anti-Communist rhetoric; Check
6. Elected (sort of) as President; Check
7. Establish dominant control of newly numbered "old party"(fifth republic movement); Check
8. Rewrite, or abolish previous Constitution; Check
9. Eliminate term limit on "elected" office; Check
10. Control the press, free speech, tax rates, import and export of all goods, military, police, international policy and banks; Outlaw private possession of firearms, land, and businesses; Check and Check
11. Threaten to attack and annex neighboring countries that don't adapt your political policies; Check
12. Huge propaganda machine; Check
Does any of this look familiar? If you know history this is very striking, if you don't, let me help with some dates when these EXACT things were "accomplished" by another um, leader.
1. 1914-1920 (military)
2. 1923 (failed coup)
3. 1924-1925 (prison for coup fail)
4. 1921 (new party founder based on Marxism)
5. Yes (anti-capitalist/communist)
6. 1933 (sort of elected)
7. The Third Reich (Fifth Republic)
8. 1934 (Constitution burned)
9, 10, 11, 12. Check, Check, Check, Check (lifetime office, control everything, threaten other countries, propaganda)
Of course the comparison person from history is Mr. Adolph Hitler (didn't some college give him a Dr. degree too).
Now I can hear the critics screaming. Technically, to be termed "dictator" means there is no opposing party in an election, but since there is no longer an election for the life of the "President", there is no opposing party is there.
"Dr." Hugo is a Dictator. Just like another Dictator which I will not make further mention of here.
Also there is that pesky little 2010 report from the Organization of American States (which appeared in all those mainstream media sources, such as The Washington Post, CNN, The Wall street Journal, National Public Radio, (!) and The New York Times), and those annoying sanctions from the European Parliament claiming "concern about the movement toward authoritarianism by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's government".
Hey Spicoli, when the primarily Socialist leaning States of Central, South, and North America, and the entire Socialist leaning Parliament of Europe is concerned about Chavez being a Dictator, there is a pretty good chance that they aren't blindly speaking out of their nether regions, as you seem to be so prone to do with the passion of a fabulously rich overrated actor, which you are.
So to make no mistake about my intended statement here...
Chavez is a Dictator.
Chavez IS a Dictator.
CHAVEZ IS A DICTATOR!
You hear that you, you ACTOR? Bring it on surfer boy.
This is SMEAR journalist Eric signing off and saying once again, CHAVEZ IS A DICTATOR! Just in case my point hasn't been clear enough.
