NY Congressman Praises Hugo Chavez


hugochavezIt only took minutes for the extreme liberal and socialist-leaning wing of the Democrat party to come out and express their condolences to  Venezuelan Dictator Hugo Chavez, who died earlier today. New York’s Democrat Congressman Jose Serrano stated on Twitter that Chavez was a “leader that understood the needs of the poor.” He ended his tweet with “R.I.P., Mr. President.” Who else will follow his lead? Wait for it….

Oh wait, there is this-

@GaltsGirl FYI: This is the same idiot who suggested that presidential term limits be lifted so Obama could seek a 3rd term.

    Investors and new residents are buying Florida real estate betting the grand solar minimum of solar cycle 24 will boost property values, due to reduced risks of hurricanes and see great year round weather in future forecasts. There’s a large amount of cheep real estate in Florida due to the housing bubble bust, and is a great time to invest for good projected returns in response to solar in-activity for as far as the eye can see.

    My mom told me you should not say anything about someone who is dead,unless it is good.He is dead,good.He understood the needs of the poor,made them more poorer in order to opress them.Congressman Serrano violates the oath he made to the US Constitution that is a People Representive Rule of Law,not Socialism.

    Chavez is finally gone and now we await the demise of the Castro Brothers who have supressed the people of their county for a very long time. Serrano needs to spend time in Venezuela to learn what the truth is. But alas, like so many politicians they do not want to know the truth.

    Good riddance to the commie hypocrite, who blesses himself, kisses the cross, and then practices his real faith, communism. Serrano should relocate to any commie country, and give the U.S. a chance at survival. With the help of God, maybe Obama will follow soon in Chavez’ footpath to hell.

    How in the world do misfits like Serrano get into the U.S. Congress….???oooops, of course, by the vote of those whose mind travel down the same road…stupid me. Yes, he should be shipped to Cuba, or Venezuela, or North Korea….good learning places for him and his idiot mouth.

    Serrano is just typical of the loonies that represent the people of NY. Many are corrupt and kept afloat by fool liberals such as S. Silver. They line their pockets with extra money by accepting trips, don’t pat taxes like that Harlem senator, protect those caught in sex scandals and just get voted in over and over again by corrupt voters who pay others to vote for these leaders. I am so glad I left NY for a less but still corrupt state of Florida. Politicians—where is your shame. Voters—you vote for these schmucks. You get what you deserve.

    Hugo Chavez was definitely passionate about social justice, but I dont believe he took the best road to achieve that goal. Historically, socialism has always been detrimental to the nations it was supposed to help. I also dont understand why Chavez hated America with such intensity. By the way, I noticed that countries whose leaders hate the US are most of the times countries where atrocities are commited on a regular basis…

    Serrano is your typical communist/democrat. Everyone needs to understand that the democrat party was absorbed by the communist party after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It’s only natural that all democrats are mourning the loss of one of their own.

    Terrific work! This is the kind of info that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher! Come on over and seek advice from my website . Thank you =)

    Of course, none of you get diplomacy. The man was the leader of a nation and, like him or not, he should get the respect due the leader of a nation.

    Just think, if we were smart with our energy policies, we’d be fueling our trucks and cars with alternative fuels, preserving our oil resources for generations to come and petty despots like Mr. Chavez, would not have OUR money to play with.

    It all comes down to people deserving the govt. they get. My guess is this guy’s district is full of low end Hispanic trash who live off the taxpayers and love the kind of confiscatory redistribution Chavez and Obama favor. That’s how people like him, Rangel and Maxine Waters get elected.
