Complete translation and official source for Hugo Chavez’ offensive anti-Semitic remarks

December 30, 2005

A reader (Gene) points me to this
post
which contains this
link
to an official Government site with the complete transcript of the
visit to a center for the homeless in which Chavez made his anti-Semitic
comments. This is a translation of that part of his “speech” or
conversation (page 18) that day and leaves no doubt as to what Hugo Chávez said and from an official transcript at that!:

“…that is why I say that today more than ever and in 2005 years we need Jesus
the Christ, because the world, the world, the daily world is ending, each day, the
wealth of the world, because God, nature is wise, the world has sufficient
water for all of us to have water, the world has sufficient wealth, sufficient
land to produce food for all of the world population, the world has enough
rocks and minerals for all of the constructions, so that nobody would be
without a home. The world is for all of us, then, but it so happens that
a minority, the descendents of the same ones that crucified Christ, the descendents
of the same ones that kicked Bolivar out of here and also crucified him in
their own way over there in Santa Marta, in Colombia. A minority has taken possesion
all of the wealth of the world, a minority has taken ownership of all of the gold of the
planet, of the silver, of the minerals, the waters, the good lands, oil, of the
wealth then and have concentrated the wealth in a few hands
: less than
10% of the population of the world owns more than half of the wealth of the
world and …more than the population of the planet is poor and each day there
are more poor people in the whole world. We are decided, decided to change
history and each day we are accompanied and will be accompanied by more Chiefs
of state…”

Thus, as my esteemed ghost blogger Jorge Arena has noted, why the collusion by the
press? Why is it that this incredibly offensive and insensitive
remarks by the Venezuelan President have had no repercussion in the
Venezuelan press? Why hasn’t theworld press communicated these remarks
by the heroe of the people? You tell me…
