Venezuela – Antisemitism – Chávez Defends the “Socialism of Fools” – 22 February 2012

I know some people out there have it in their heads that Hugo Chávez is some kind of “defender of the people”. I would like to ask those people to re-evaluate their point of view. There is no definition of “defender of the people” that I could possibly recognise which describes someone who stands idly by while people do this. More than ever, August Bebel’s comment about anti-Semitism being the “socialism of fools” strikes to the heart of the matter.
