No progressives should be demanding new elections in Venezuela due to Chavez' health... [View all]

...OR gloating over the possibility that Chavez might die of his illness.

We're better than that, people.

It's not our place to try to try to impose our wishes about who runs that country, especially with our long history of imperialism in this hemisphere.

And Hugo Chavez, while he's no saint, is not the personification of evil...He's just a leader that some people support and others don't.

It's really disgusting to see the pre-emptive grave dancing some allegedly "progressive" DU'ers are doing about Chavez' possible demise, and it's beneath the dignity of this talkboard.

We need to see the push for new elections for what it is...a right-wing plot to force Venezuela to give up its revolution(which is the same thing as forcing it to give up on social change forever, because the poor can't gain in that country WITHOUT a continuing revolution).

The poor and the workers of Venezuela did nothing to anyone here to deserve this from supposedly "enlightened liberal" North Americans.

For shame.
