Hugo Chavez - Fascist At Large!
Story By Patrick Markey
CARACAS, Venezuela (Reuters) - A Venezuelan labor leader who helped organize a strike against President Hugo Chavez three years ago was sentenced on Tuesday to more than 15 years in prison for civil rebellion.
Carlos Ortega, one of Chavez's fiercest opponents during months of political turmoil, is the first top opposition leader jailed for the two-month-long strike that failed to topple the president.
Hundreds of business and political figures are under investigation for supporting the failed 2002 coup against Chavez that preceded it.
You know, it's amazing that the anti-American and anti-Bush zealots out there want to call Bush the "fascist" and "Nazi", but how many opposition leaders has Bush put in jail? Let's see... NONE is the answer!
