Venezuela moved another step closer to dictatorship as voters there reportedly approved a referendum removing term limits for President Hugo Chavez, a longtime friend of America’s enemies and a harborer of terrorists.
Not surprisingly, Hillary Clinton’s State Department rushed to congratulate the budding Marxist tyrant even though it’s unclear if it was a fair vote.
Chavez now vows to speed up “the construction of true socialism” in Venezuela.
We profiled Chavez and his useful idiot friends in America in the March 2008 Organization Trends. Around the same time I wrote an op-ed about the same topic that ran in the Boston Herald.
