Belafonte Says Bush Is 'Greatest Terrorist in the World,' Praises Venezuelan Dictator

Sunday, January 08, 2006

 

Belafonte led a delegation of Americans including the actor Danny Glover and the Princeton University scholar Cornel West that met the Venezuelan president for more than six hours late Saturday. Some in the group attended Chavez's television and radio broadcast Sunday.

 

"No matter what the greatest tyrant in the world, the greatest terrorist in the world, George W. Bush says, we're here to tell you: Not hundreds, not thousands, but millions of the American people ... support your revolution," Belafonte told Chavez during the broadcast.

 

The 78-year-old Belafonte, famous for his calypso-inspired music, including the "Day-O" song, was a close collaborator of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and is now a UNICEF goodwill ambassador. He also has been outspoken in criticizing the U.S. embargo of Cuba.

 

Chavez said he believes deeply in the struggle for justice by blacks, both in the U.S. and Venezuela.

 

"Although we may not believe it, there continues to be great discrimination here against black people," Chavez said, urging his government to redouble its efforts to prevent discrimination.

 

Belafonte accused U.S. news media of falsely painting Chavez as a "dictator," when in fact, he said, there is democracy and citizens are "optimistic about their future."

 

Dolores Huerta, a pioneer of the United Farm Workers labor union also in the delegation, called the visit a "very deep experience."

 

Chavez accuses Bush of trying to overthrow him, pointing to intelligence documents released by the U.S. indicating that the CIA knew beforehand that dissident officers planned a short-lived 2002 coup. The U.S. denies involvement, but Chavez says Venezuela must be on guard.

 

Belafonte suggested setting up a youth exchange for Venezuelans and Americans. He finished by shouting in Spanish: "Viva la revolucion!"

 

:lol :lol :lol

 

Viva la revolucion!

I think he needs to lay off the LSD, or whatever it is he's on.

 

So much for "Goodwill Ambassador".

 

Another thing: Who are these millions of Americans that support Hugo Chavez? The Daily Show made a good point last night in saying that most Americans probably don't even know where Venezuela IS.

who cares what this guy says. I'm much more concerned with psychotics like Falwell and Co. who say bizarre, off the wall sh*t like this because they have an enormous influence on a large segment of the population.

 

Or, sadly, guys like Pat Robertson and Bill O'Reilly.

 

And Michael Moore and Co.

I think you just mean Michael Moore. I can't think of anyone else comparable on the left.

There are plenty. There is that guy on the radio, I can't think of his name. He's O'Reilly's nemesis.

You mean Al Franken. He's no Bill O'Reilly or Moore.

 

The left has its crazies, but the right has far more and worse ones, from Robertson to Ann Coulter. I think that Robertson himself could qualify as certifiably insane.

This is all I'm going to say mostly because I really hate this man, but how is Pat Roberstaon able to go around carte blanche and make wild accusations about many things and then simply apoligize for being a loon and people seem to accept that and move on. Furthermore why do people keep on funding whatever it is that he does these days?

 

 

I can live with everyone else out there but this idiot, yet he is allowed to do so and people continue to support him? Are they that stupid, or do they simply believe what he says is true and are just too afraid to publically say so?

That's exactly what I don't understand. The guy calls for the assassination of Hugo Chavez, prays repeatedly on his show for a Supreme Court justice to DIE just so that person could be replaced with a more conservative justice, and then says that Sharon deserved his stroke. I'm absolutely convinced that he's either going senile, or has severe mental problems.
