Venezuela Reacts to Pat Robertson...


Recommended Posts

Impossible... Reganomics was based on infinite supply models... with fundamental ideas from ecology movement it is clear we live on a finite planet (cept if they find frozen oxygen on Mars or something)... there's got to be a ceiling... hopefully we won't get eaten up by the flood waters, or have to stand on anyones head to do so... though I believe this is already happening in many places. :(

if the US isn't doing anything about televangelists calling on people to prey for supreme court justices to die, what makes the venezuelans think this is a big deal?

love it or hate it....freedom of speech. the televangelists can say whatever they want. no one can do much about it till someone tries to kill the guy. asking god to do it, or suggesting the US government do it, isn't against the law.

Things proceeding not to happen more or less as expected....

Venezuela's Chavez says Bush will be responsible 'if anything happens to me'

Venezuela's foreign minister, Ali Rodriguez, on Thursday criticized the U.S. government for not condemning Robertson's remarks outright.

Rodriguez said at a meeting in Bariloche, Argentina, that the U.S. reaction had been "a bit strange," according to a Foreign Ministry statement.

"There has been no forceful condemnation by the United States as everyone expected," Rodriguez said, according to the statement.

He also said Robertson's comments were clearly a crime of incitement but that no legal proceedings have been opened.

"If anyone in the world had a doubt . . . that sectors of the U.S. government have been planning President Hugo Chavez's assassination, those doubts surely have been cleared up through the criminal act by a personality very close to President George W. Bush, who has a lot of influence in the current U.S. administration," Rodriguez said.

"The ball is in the U.S. court, after this criminal statement by a citizen of that country," Rangel told reporters. "It's huge hypocrisy to maintain this discourse against terrorism and at the same time, in the heart of that country, there are entirely terrorist statements like those."
