Recycling Material in Copenhagen

|

A few days ago I noted the rapturous applause that greeted Hugo Chavez's insane speech at the Copenhagen climate change conference. And according to informed media reports, Hugo is still giving marathon speeches, and still getting big applause, from those in search of an "alternative" system like Venezuela (From what I can make out, no one has complained that subsidized gasoline in Caracas costs 12 cents per gallon). Today, Chavez indicated that his honeymoon with President Obama is officially over, calling him the "Nobel War Prize" winner and, like President George W. Bush, an incarnation of Satan.

Chavez is sticking to the theory that the United States is more useful as an adversary, regardless of who inhabits the White House. This goes some way toward explaining why, in a little noticed outburst yesterday in Copenhagen, he warned that the Americans, in concert with the Dutch (!), were still planning on invading Venezuela.

NEXT: Democracy? There's an App for That.

  1. Holland, of course, is a shell corporation of the USA.

    1. heh heh heh

  2. The new world order masters today control the governments of the USA and most EU, the monaquies and the zionists call the shots and Chavez ain’t abiding. So the Dutch the British the hipocritical french the nazis in charge of Germany today all of them are against want to keep Africa and Soth America as colonies. Obama has taken over Colombia whose president (a recognized drug dealer) had to hand over Colombia’s soverienity for anmisty. they have bases in bonaire, curazao and aruba (dutch colonies) and pretent to fight drug traffic when in fact the control the drug traffic, two well known US banks were bailed out with drug money.

    The people of the west are blind and their governments are taking them all the way to hell.

    1. How many people were on that grassy knoll? Was Elvis’ alien love-child there?

    2. Obama has taken over Colombia whose president (a recognized drug dealer) had to hand over Colombia’s soverienity for anmisty

      Man, you got to have that anmisty. I would sell my children for another hit of sweet, sweet anmisty.

    3. Palomudo. LOL. They let any idiot in here, I guess.

    4. Good stuff, dude. You got any more?

    5. I forgot to add: GLURGLE BLUURGLE NWO REPTILIANS BLARGLE BLARRGLE BLAAUUGH!

    6. He who smelt it, dealt it!

    7. Although your assertions are counterfactual, your prose is illiterate, and your argument is incoherent, the conclusion that you make in the final independent clause of your comment isn’t too far from being correct.

    8. How much does Chavez pay you to suck his dick?

      Or do you do it for free? I know there is a whole country full of loser Venezuelans and you exemplify them well.

    9. Zionists? Where do I sign up?

  3. perhaps the smell may be emitting from your upper lip senior presidente?

  4. I thought it was Israel, not Holland…
    Guy has a hard time keeping track of his enemies.

    1. Dude’s been itching to do a Falklands on the Dutch Caribbean awhiles now. You may have noticed our Bolivarian friend upthread mentioned the grave danger to Venezuela’s peaceful socialist masses from the Dutch colonisers in Aruba.

      1. Uh, that’s kinda scary! You know the Dutch ain’t going to do a thing, which means nasty ol’ US is gonna end up saving one more Euro-trash butt. On our dime.

    2. There’s only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people’s cultures… and the Dutch

  5. How appropriate that Chavez rants about sulfur smells all the time, when Venezuelan crude is generally considered low grade (“sour crude”), due to its unusually high sulfur content.

    1. The smell is coming from Chavez, a fat smelly bastard that hasn’t had a bath in many years.

  6. What was that racist thing Chavez said about Our Dear Leader? I can’t remember…

  7. Do you think Obama cried when he found Hugo didn’t want to be his BFF?

    1. Obama is a professional politician … he doesn’t take it personally. He knows that Hugo needs to paint the US as villian to excuse his domestic failures.

      Further, Obama knows that the US is indeed the cause of all the world’s evils, and understands that there are some among us who, painting with a broad brush, would associate his wonderfulness with the past evil of the nation that he is in the process of fundamentally transforming.

      Nobody said that being the Redeemer of an Evil Empire would be easy. The One knows this.

  8. Everything you need to know about climate change can be seen in the thunderous applause given the likes of Chavez, Mugabe and Morales.

    1. Amazing, isn’t it? Especially Mugabe.

      1. To be fair, Comrade Bob’s been very good at reducing a lot of Zimbabweans’ carbon footprint to zero. So there’s that.

        1. Starving them to death does tend to have that effect.

          1. We should implement that here. Americans are too fat and lazy as it is, this’d be good for them. Especially fat rich white people.

            1. No need for that, it is much greener to just send Tony to Venezuela.

              1. Let’s chip in to get him there. He likely won’t fly because that supposedly hurts Mother Earth, so we’d have to find another method…

                1. Whadaya mean he won’t fly?! Kick him hard enough and he’ll soar.

            2. Start with yourself, Tony.

              1. Don’t you talk to my dear friend Tony like that, Holocaust denier!

  9. life would be boring without the wackos.

  10. Today, Chavez indicated that his honeymoon with President Obama is officially over, calling him the “Nobel War Prize” winner and, like President George W. Bush, an incarnation of Satan.

    Oh cripes! He is a whole different Satan.

    1. Suki, where would you rather be neighbors with Tony, in Venezuela or Gaza?

    2. Stick to the devil you know.

    3. i know people say things change when you get married but that most be the worst honeymoon ever.
      though maybe finding out you are married to a pre-op transexual might be worse.

  11. The Dutch will roll huge wheels of poisoned Gouda toward Chavez’ official residence, destroying the house and killing him. Oops…did I give something away?

  12. Today, Chavez indicated that his honeymoon with President Obama is officially over, calling him the “Nobel War Prize” winner and, like President George W. Bush, an incarnation of Satan.

    He doesn’t love me anymore!

  13. From what I can make out, no one has complained that subsidized gasoline in Caracas costs 12 cents per gallon[…]

    .
    .
    Why, you… you… DENIER!

    1. And if it’s anything like it was when I used to travel there in the 1980s (easily my least favorite SA destination), the cars that gasoline is getting burned up in are all enormous American sedans with the A/C blasted 24/7.

    2. Doesn’t a lot of Venezuela come from tar sands? Don’t the carbon zealots hate oil production from tar sands?

      The answers are yes and yes.

      How is it, then, that the carbon zealots give Hugo a free pass on tar sands bitumen production at the same time that they castigate private companies for doing the same thing in Alberta?

      Could it be that they aren’t so much opposed to carbon emissions as they opposed to private ownership?

      I think this confirms the appropriateness of the term “watermelon” to describe carbon zealots: green on the outside and red on the inside.

      Try this experiment: Go to Greenpeace.org and search for “Canada Tar Sands”. You’ll 26 distinct, relevant hits. Then search Venezuelan Tar Sands. You will get four hits, but they’re irrelevant to Ven tar sands.

      The Citizens Energy propaganda program for Citgo/PdVSA/Venezuelan government is another interesting story. US Rep. Joseph Kennedy got the ball rolling with Hugo to embarrass Bush and bunish Hugo’s image during a period of high oil prices. Just think how proud his namesake Grandpa would have been to see his grandson’s work to get foreign aid from a Latin American dictator. Curiously, no mention was made of how much PdVSA oil was produced from tar sands formations, despite the Kennedy clan’s green credentials. Just as curious, PdVSA shut down its subsidies in Jan 2009 due to low prices, a sagging Ven economy, and no more Bush to bash.

  14. There are only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people’s cultures… and the Dutch!

  15. Big surprise! The leftard blogs aren’t reporting this.

    1. Not even MediaMorons?

  16. Today, Chavez indicated that his honeymoon with President Obama is officially over, calling him the “Nobel War Prize” winner and, like President George W. Bush, an incarnation of Satan.

    That’s pretty harsh to Satan.

  17. Looks like Chavez got only half-hearted applause that time.

    1. All the commies like Chad and Tony already did it in their undies the first time.

      1. We go commando most of the time. One less layer of clothing to worry about when the urges strike.

  18. I’m sure all Chavez needs is some one on one time with the Big O. Obama can bring him around to the proper way.

    as long as the prompter is set up and doesn’t fail

  19. Don’t need a woman’s touch!
    We’re cowboys, and we’re Dutch!
    We’re rough and strong and tall and
    Dutch cowboys come from Holland!

  20. Chavez is sticking to the theory that the United States is more useful as an adversary, regardless of who inhabits the White House.

    This assumes that the man is capable of making strategic judgments, and isn’t simply batshit insane. I question that assumption.

  21. Today, Chavez indicated that his honeymoon with President Obama is officially over, calling him the “Nobel War Prize” winner and, like President George W. Bush, an incarnation of Satan.

    El Presidente misspoke.

    He meant to say that Obama is an incarnation of Nyarlathotep.

    1. Ah, if only Chavez had those kind of mad public speaking skillz.

  22. These ‘leaders’ want to bring every country to a North Korean carbon footprint.

    They can try, but it will result in their dead and tortured bodies.

    1. Barry and I are working on that, JB.

  23. I hope the Dutch kick his big fat ass with those wooden shoes.
