Obama's Bestest Bud Shuts Down 34 Radio Stations

Venezuela's freedom-hating, commie punk runt of a dictator Hugo Chavez, who is probably occupying the #2 phone number slot underneath George Soros on Obama's Blackberry, has begun shutting down 34 radio stations in that sad, unfortunate country:

"They're closing the space for dissidents in Venezuela," William Echeverria, head of the National Council of Journalists, told RCTV, a private cable TV station, which did not have its broadcasting license renewed in 2007.

Chavez defended the closures, calling them part of the government's effort to democratize the airwaves.

"We haven't closed any radio stations, we've applied the law," Chavez said on state television. "We've recovered a bunch of stations that were outside the law, that now belong to the people and not the bourgeoisie."

You can find the entire article here.

Of course, a commie dictator shutting down radio stations all over really isn't even all that newsworthy, as we have seen it many times.

What is newsworthy (and not a little scary) is that a sitting POTUS thinks the punk who is committing this hideous assault on freedom and liberty is such a swell guy.

gott ist tot,

I hope a majority of my fellow North Americans wake up very soon, as I fear that should they not, we here in America may be facing something similar not too far down the road.

Thanks for dropping by,
