Chavez Recommends Chomsky – Calls Bush 'The devil'

Please scroll down for more of the transcription. It's coming along in sections.

Hot Air has video 

I think that the first people who should read this book are our brothers and sisters in the United States because their threat is in their own house. The devil is right at home. The devil, the devil himself is right in the house. And the devil came here yesterday. Yesterday the devil came here. Right here. (crosses himself) Right here. And it smells of sulfur still today. This table that I am now standing in front of, yesterday ladies and gentlemen, from this rostrum, the President of the United States, the gentleman to whom I refer as 'the devil' came here talking as if he owned the world. Truly as the owner of the world. I think we can call a psychiatrist to analyze yesterday's statement made by the President of the United States. As the spokesman of imperialism he came to share his nostrums. To try to preserve the current pattern of domination, exploitation and pillage of the peoples of the world. An Alfred Hitchcock movie could use it as a scenario. I would even propose a title, 'The Devil's Recipe'.

As Chomsky says here clearly and in depth, the American Empire is doing all it can to consolidate its hegemonistic system of domination and we can not allow them to do that. We can not allow a world dictatorship to be consolidated.

And that's as much as I can stand to transcribe from the translation as shown on Fox News…

(I will be transcribing more of this since the interest level is high – Give me a little time please). 

Totally amazing. 

Here's some more transcription of Chavez' speech:

The world tyrant's statement, cynical, hypocritical, full of his imperial hypocrisy from the need they have to control everything. They say they want to impose a democratic model? But that's their [emphasis translator's] democratic model. It's the false democracy of elites and I would say a very original democracy that's imposed by weapons and bombs and firing weapons. What a strange democracy. Aristotlese [name used by translator] might not recognize it. Or others who are at the root of democracy. What type of democracy do you impose with Marines and bombs and…

The President of the United States yesterday said to us right here in this room and I'm quoting, "Anywhere you look you hear extremists telling you you can escape from poverty and recover your dignity through violence, terror, and martyrdom." Wherever he looks, he sees extremists. And you, my brother, he looks at your color and he says, 'oh, there's an extremist.' Evo Morales, the worthy President of  Bolivia looks like an extremist to him. The imperialists see extremists everywhere. It's not that we are extremists, it's that the world is waking up. It's waking up all over and people are standing up.

I have the feeling, dear World Dictator, that you are going to live the rest of your days as a nightmare. Because the rest of us are standing up. All of us are rising up against American imperialism, who are shouting for equality, for respect, for the sovereignty of nations.

Yes, you can call us extremists, but we are rising up against the empire, against the model of domination.

Break time, more later. 

The President then – and this he said himself – I have come to speak directly to the populations in the Middle East to tell them that my country wants peace. That's true. If we walk in the streets of the Bronx, if we walk around New York, Washington, San Diego, in any city – San Antonio – San Francisco, and we ask individuals  – citizens of the United States – 'What does this country want? Does it want peace?', they'll say yes. But the government doesn't want peace, the government of the United States doesn't want peace. It wants to exploit its system of exploitation, of pillage, of hegemony through war. It wants peace but what's happening in Iraq? What happened in Lebanon? Palestine? What's happening? What's happened over the last hundred years in Latin America and in the world? And its now threatening Venezuela, new threats against Venezuela. Against Iran.  

Another break. Little Guy needs an escort to the bus stop for kindergarden. Will be back shortly with more. (12:30 CDT)  

Back …

He spoke to the people of Lebanon. Many of you, he said, have seen  how your homes and communities have been caught in the crossfire. How cynical can you get? What a capacity to lie. Shamefacedly. The bomb in Beriut? With milimetric [translator's word] precision? This is crossfire? He's thinking of a Western, when people would shoot from the hip and somebody would be caught in the crossfire. This is imperialist fire, fascist, assasin, genocidal. The empire and Israel fire on the people of Palestine and Lebanon. That is what happened and now we hear we're suffering because we see the homes destroyed.

More coming.
