Miss Venezuela’s Silent Anti-Chavez Protest…
Weasel Zippers ^ | August 27, 2010

Posted on 08/27/2010 9:26:55 AM PDT by La Lydia

Beautiful beyond belief and anti-Marxist. Now, that’s a winning combination!… (Powerline)- We missed an important moment at the Miss Universe pageant on Saturday night. The outgoing Miss Universe made a little political statement on her final catwalk that was visible to Venezuelans but probably no one else, holding up an obsolete seven star pre-Chavez era flag. She did it to signal distress in her country, and nowhere is that move evident than in Venezuela’s violent crime. This week the news came out that Caracas is the most violent city in the world, a distinction it holds over Kabul, Baghdad, Sao Paulo and Ciudad Juarez.

Hugo Chavez has made Venezuela a real hellhole and that’s prompting little public statements amid public discord. Investor’s Business Daily brings the news in “The killing fields of Caracas.”...

Someone tell Sean Penn. There is a fabulous picture of her at the link. She is gorgeous, and I was rooting for her, but Miss Mexico, who is also beautiful won. I predict this young woman moves to Miami to work for Telemundo.

"I predict this young woman moves to Miami to work for Telemundo."

There's also the possibility that she could become a political prisoner in one of Chavez's jails. I doubt he's happy about the image.

Once she starts rubbing elbows with the Hollywood trash she’ll likely become another Gloria Estefan.

Why not credit an act of political courage when you see one?

I think she was the outgoing Miss Universe, who is Venezuelan, right?

I suspect she has a US (or some other country) visa, as such a protest won't received well by Hugo. It might be dangerous for her to return to VZ after this.

Nope, they are waiting to see if the 9th Circus overthrows the people of California! Once that is done, THEN he will announce their engagement and set a wedding date!

Do you really know her motives for saying this? I don’t and I think I’ll wait to see how this plays out longer term.

That flag speaks for itself. It's the pre-Chavez national standard of Venezuela, and people display it explicitly to protest Chavez.

It's analogous to holding up a "Don't tread on me" flag prior to the US Revolution.

She was also born in 1990. Does that make you feel old, or what?

I’ve become quite jaded with people who make political statements and then join the establishment when the opportunity presents itself. Unfortunately for this lady, she will encounter many socialists in this country as well. I hope she holds her ground but I will withhold my praise for now. I seem to recall that Ms. Estefan was conservative leaning at one time.

If she is like every other upper middle class woman in Venezuela, her family long ago established a beach head in Miami and they all have some kind of visa that allows them to remain in the US indefinitely.

A few years ago I was working on a project for a refinery in Venezuela. Some of the engineers and maintenance technicians were here stateside for the factory acceptance test of the process control system. Most did not like Chavez, and this was before his major power grabs. Some of the techs already had property in the States, others were looking for refinery tech jobs in the local area.

One tech had on his laptop wallpaper a picture calling Chavez “La Constitucional Menaza”.

I am being vague on when and where this was so to avoid these people being recognized by Venezuelan “enforcement”.

Looks like she better take out some pre-emptive restraining orders against FReepers. Prevention is twice as cheap as a cure and well, considering how frisky some male Freepers are on here, I think it would be better unless she wants to carry a mini-FReeper.

“and well, considering how frisky some male Freepers are on here,”

Conservative men have higher testosterone levels, so a woman lucky enough to be married to a conservative man not only has a more fit mate, but gets “some” when she wants it (and perhaps more!).
