Skip to comments.Cindy Sheehan detested by Venezuelans

Cindy Sheehan went to Caracas, Venezuela to put her thumb in the eye of the Bush administration. She was leading the World Social Forum, a far-left alternative to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, to cavort with fellow leftists.
Less well known was that her trip was sponsored by the Venezuelan foreign ministry. The price of that was obligatory praise of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, whos rapidly plunging in the opinion polls for his incompetence and corruption.
I admire President Chavez for his strength to resist the United States, she said.
Sheehan, who knows nothing of Venezuela, was easy to persuade to say that Chavez was her hero. But by paying formal obeisance to her paymaster, she showed shell say just about anything if the price is right. Apparently, the price isnt very high, either.
It turns out not everyone is amused. Venezuelas Spanish-language news bulletin boards are aflame over the Sheehan appearance and I-love-Chavez statements. These local Venezuelans have taken to posting ugly pictures of her and condemning her almost as badly as they condemn another U.S. zero, former President Jimmy Carter, who knowingly certified fraud in Venezuelas 2004 recall referendum.
Its only Thursday and already theyve had a bellyful of these leftists in Caracas even condemning their garbage, their mess and their telltale marijuana odor.
But theres an extra-special particular rage at the vile mercenary nature of Sheehan. Along with most Latin Americans, most Venezuelans did not support the Iraq war, which is one reason why Sheehans pro-Chavez statements are such a noxious wake up call.
Even if you cant read Spanish, there are plenty of pictures and signs of local Venezuelan fury here.

Ohhhh I wanna see the pictures! LOL
Aaagh. Those first two pictures are making me queasy.
Are there any other kind?............
"Spanish-language news bulletin boards are aflame...these local Venezuelans have taken to posting ugly pictures of her and condemning her almost"
Maybe we should invite them over to Free Republic to get some material.
that sounds like a good idea! does anyone know any choice threads to send to them? These Venezuelans are interested!
Posting ugly pictures of her? Isn't that a bit redundant?
Does she know anything about anything?
Where does the cop on the left have his hand? Is that why Cindy is smiling?

'She' didn't have to go that far to be detested. Could've just come over to my house. Iv'e got some DDT left over from the sixty's to clean up after her visit.
Hi, I'm Cindy Sheehan. Attention and Media Whore. Welcome to my book signing. Its about time someone showed up. I've been here for 5 hours!
Could AG not just 'pull' her passport - for a while, at least - make her STAY there.
If not then the least that might be mustered for her would be a 'go back to Venezuela'. . .campaign for Cindy.
It is just incredible. . .I wish Belefonte had stayed there as well. And yes. . .Jimmy Carter. . .the list of Libs really is ad nauseum.
Its no wonder these people hate AMERICA.
A senile Pres and a current media moonbat celebrity are the only contact they have with us.
Not positive role models.
This has me intrigued. Does anyone have any further information about this?
If you have some Mirex to go along with that DDT, can I be your new best friend?
Exactly. Any photo of her will do.
