“Why Don’t You Shut Up!”

Posted by Ryan on November 11, 2007

Says Juan Carlos, King of Spain, to Commissar Hugo Chavez of Venezuela after Chavez accused the last Spanish leader with a pair, Jose Aznar, of being a fascist while also trying to speak over current socialist Prime Minister Zapatero.  That may be divisive rhetorical nonsense in the Americas, but in Spain that’s a real insult to most middle age and older people who remember Francisco Franco’s fascist regime which survived until the mid-1970s.  Chavez obviously has disdain for the democratic process.  Does he even know who he was talking to?  Remember it was Spain after the 3/11 attacks that gave al Qaeda their first major moral victory after 9/11 by cut-and-running from Iraq back in 2004!  As a sworn enemy of America, shouldn’t Hugo appreciate that in the very least?  What a rube!

It’s great someone finally put Chavez in his place in person.
