Reflective Chavez weeps at Mass in Venezuela
Reuters ^ | Fri Apr 6, 2012 12:18am EDT | Daniel Wallis

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.

Ah yes. “For the people”. THE foundational lie of Communism.

Add a happy Dubya having a BBQ on his ranch, smoking a cigar knowing the end is near for a certain despot.

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.

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

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

Translation: He’s got three, maybe six months to live tops.

I too had the same reaction reading that gem of a sentence. The only way my mind was able to digest that scene was to accept the fact that he does not worship the same Jesus as I do.

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

-- He will die convinced of his righteousness.

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.

Chavez is doing it wrong. He needs to at least confess his sins. It doesn’t sound like he is busy with that.

Hugo, you arrogant fool, God will not be mocked. You are about to be judged by a power far greater than you could ever conceive. You'd better pack asbestos underwear because you will need it and SOON.

It is amazing how all these hard-as-nails dictators go all wobbly and weepy when told they have terminal cancer and they are going to die. Thanks to Cuban medicine, it will probably be a painful and debilitating death — unless Hugo commits suicide. But, suicide automatically sends one to Hell. Enjoy Hell, Hugo.

Amazing what replacing and adding a word in a couple of places can do to change a lie to the truth.

The President in MALAWI, in Africa, died today. Heart attack.

He was being very stubborn, saying he would not step down, and that he by all means HAD TO STAY IN OFFICE AT LEAST TO 2014 because he had so many things to do for the People and the for the Economy. Apparantly God saw it otherwise today.

Hugo Chavez, big mouth and long winded, talks much the same way for hours on end with his live TV lecturas.

Maybe it will be his turn next, he might be sensing the Angel of Death, or at least smelling the sulphur. Funny how he mocked George W. Bush in front of the whole world at the UN (and so many delegates thought it was "humorous") about being Satan, andnow Bush is kicking back enjoyin' ice tea on the Texas front porch after clearing firewood. Just having a good, peaceful retirement. What goes around comes around I guess.
