Chavez: Civil Rights Leader, Christian, Champion of Poor

Rev. Jackson Lends Support to Chavez:

The Rev. Jesse Jackson offered support for President Hugo Chavez on Sunday, saying a call for his assassination by a U.S. religious broadcaster was a criminal act and that Washington and Venezuela should work out their differences through diplomacy.

The U.S. civil rights leader condemned last week's suggestion by Pat Robertson that American agents should kill the leftist Venezuelan leader, calling the conservative commentator's statements "immoral" and "illegal."

[...] "We must choose a civilized policy of rational conversation," he told reporters at a news conference.

Jesse Jackson talking about the morality and legality of anything is absolutely nutty.

Let's take a look into how you exploit the wealth and minds of black America via your Rainbow/PUSH Coalition.

And as for choosing "rational" conversation... we'll wait for when you're mature enough to come to the big people's table for that, Jesse. You and the rest of your little friends.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission "must prohibit such threats on the airwaves," said Jackson, who arrived Saturday for a visit along with members of his Rainbow/PUSH Coalition.

"I hope the FCC does not remain silent regarding what Robertson said," Jackson added.

I hope the FCC does not remain silent regarding what you, Al Sharpton, John Kerry, and countless other Dhimmicrats have said at the PULPITS of liberal/black churches across America, you hypocrite.

Jackson later met and shook hands with Chavez during the Venezuelan leader's weekly radio and television program.

"Reverend Jackson, you can be sure that we will continue fighting for the ideas of Martin Luther King, for Christ the Redeemer's idea of loving one another and building a society of equals through our peaceful and democratic revolution," said Chavez.

He told Jackson he wanted to discuss the possibility of sending oil at preferential terms to poor communities in the United States.

Since taking office in 1999, Chavez has survived a 2002 coup, a 2003 strike and a recall referendum last year. He is up for re-election next year, and recent polls suggest he has a 70 percent approval rating.

How the heck do you selectively import petroleum to "poor communites"?

The last paragraph is the MSM's shameless attempt to tout Chavez's record of "democratic" victory...

Seventy (70%) percent approval rating... according to what polling group?

Las mentiras engendran más mentiras y más mentiras y más mentiras...
