Posted on 04/05/2012 11:00:31 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez wept and asked God to spare his life during a pre-Easter Mass on Thursday after returning from his latest session of cancer treatment in Cuba.
Very little is known about the 57-year-old socialist leader's condition, including even what type of cancer he has. Chavez has undergone three operations in less than a year, and received two sessions of radiation treatment.
He says the latest surgery was successful, that he is recovering well and will be fit to win a new six-year term at an election in October. Yet big questions remain about his future, and on Thursday the strain appeared to show.
In a televised speech to the Catholic service in his home state of Barinas, Chavez cried and his voice broke as he eulogized Jesus, revolutionary fighter Ernesto "Che" Guevara and South American independence hero Simon Bolivar.
"Never forget that we are the children of giants ... I could not avoid some tears," the former soldier said, his parents and other relatives looking on from the church rows.
"Give me your crown, Jesus. Give me your cross, your thorns so that I may bleed. But give me life, because I have more to do for this country and these people. Do not take me yet," Chavez added, standing below an image of Jesus with the Crucifix.

Hugo is very frightened now that he is beginning to smell the approaching sulfur.
“...because I have more to do for this country and these people.:
Ah yes. “For the people”. THE foundational lie of Communism.
“Hugo is very frightened now that he is beginning to smell the approaching sulfur.”
Add a happy Dubya having a BBQ on his ranch, smoking a cigar knowing the end is near for a certain despot.
How ‘bout “Thy will be done...”?
How bout Thy will be done...?
As Christ taught us in Gethsemane, ALWAYS the proper way to approach the Lord.
“But give me life, because I have more to do for this country and these people.”
I doubt the Lord can stop laughing at that request.
Well, Hugo the first step is a sincere cofession.
Then you need to reform your life and try to undue everything that you’ve done.
It’s not too late. If Danton could do it, you can too.
Don’t forget “the children”. :-)
The road to hell is paved with Leftist’s good intentions. Chavez will never see what he did as wrong. He will die convinced of his righteousness
You’re probably right, but for the sake of his soul, I hope he opens his eyes.
Facing death like a man. Weeping like a b#tch. He’s had more of a chance than he gave his political opponents. Reap what you sow. I’m a coward but I’d hate to have his resume when I see the guy he’s praying to. Smell the sulphur baby, laugh now douche bag. Bahahahaha
I’m thinking maybe MD Anderson or Sloan-Kettering might have been just a little bit better than Havana Barber School and Medical Center. Bwahahahahaha But since we all know that Cuba’s medical system is superior to that mean old capitalist health care. Just ask the rocket scientist Michael Moore
Oh God, if you would only let me win the lottery.....
“He says the latest surgery was successful, that he is recovering well and will be fit to win a new six-year term at an election in October.”
Translation: He’s got three, maybe six months to live tops.
"One of these things is not like the others One of these things just doesn't belong Can you tell which thing is not like the others By the time i finish my song? Did you guess which thing was not like the others? Did you guess which thing just doesn't belong? If you guessed this one is not like the others Then you're absolutely...right! " (Sesame Street)
Typical marixist humanistic narcissism that i have come to experience in my dealings with these people. Sadly they really do believe in their cause and as someone else posted . . . willing to kill others with their henchmen to further their cause.
coming to shores of America soon
Partial transcript of 1985 video interview of KGB defector Yuri Alexander Bezmenov:
Most of the people who (reeducated) in the sixties, drop outs or half-baked intellectuals are now occupying the positions of power in te Government, civil service, business, mass media, educational system. You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated, They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black you still cannot change the basic perception and illogical behavior. In other words, these people, the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To get rid society of these people you need another twenty or fifteen years to educate a new generation of patriotically-minded and commonsense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of the United States society.
The Lord’s will be done.
Chavez is doing it wrong. He needs to at least confess his sins. It doesn’t sound like he is busy with that.
