Should Americans be concerned that three of the worlds top dictatorshipsalso renowned for violating human rightsare endorsing President Obama? The White House probably wont issue any press releases, but here are the details.
The latest to publicly announce his support for the commander-in-chiefs reelection bid was Venezuelas Hugo Chavez, who this week assured hed vote for Obama if he were from the United States. The America-bashing strongman made the announcement on state-owned television, saying Obama is a good guy and that if Obama was from Caracas, hed surely return the favor by voting for Chavez.
The Venezuelan dictator, who has forged a strong alliance with Iran , appreciates that Obama doesnt consider Venezuela a threat to the interests of the Unites States. This despite illegally shipping U.S. military aircraft to help Iran evade American radar, hosting terrorists from Hezbollah and Colombias Revolutionary Armed Forces and helping Iran and Syria evade international sanctions. Chavez is also buying tons of advanced weaponry from Russia and has pulled out of human rights conventions that could call his regime on its many violations.
Oh, and who could forget that Chavez named a former military intelligence officer sanctioned by the U.S. for trafficking drugs as deputy interior minister. In 2008, the U.S. Treasury froze the new ministers (Hugo Carvajal) assets because he assisted narcotics trafficking by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia. Chavez named another U.S.-blacklisted official who provided Colombian rebels with weapons and training commander General of the Army.
Earlier in the year the government-official daughter of Cuban military dictator Raul Castro proclaimed her countrys support for Obama during a visit to the U.S. I believe that Obama needs another opportunity and he needs greater support to move forward with his projects and with his ideas, which I believe come from the bottom of his heart, Mariela Castro said during a cable news interview. Cuba has for years appeared on the State Departments list of terrorist sponsoring nations and its communist regime is famous for its atrocious human rights violations. Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro also endorsed Obama (actually an Obama-Clinton ticket) during the 2008 election in a piece published in the islands communist paper.
That brings us to Russias Vladimir Putin, who has eliminated most elections in his country, monopolized all major media and destroyed the political party system. There is no doubt that hes a dictator, according to a Russian journalist, who says the only reason this is questioned is because western leaders and western media refuse to call him one. Putin has also had his police cronies in Moscow arrest peaceful, legal demonstrators and confiscate, destroy or damage private property.
In a letter to a major newspaper, the president of a group dedicated to expanding freedom around the world points out that under Putin there has been an across-the-board crackdown on civil society. The piece goes on to ask: Will Obama stand up against Putins abuses? Unlikely, now that the Russian dictator has extended his endorsement.
Birds of a feather.
Obama is a dictator, due primarily to the MSM.
Exactly, a great keyword. :-)
You’re dead on the mark, he couldn’t have done this without them.
I feel so sad.
Dictators always endorse the Democrat candidate...nothing new there. Doesn’t that tell you everything you need to know about Obama?
What? No Ahmadinejad?
97% of Marxist despots prefer Obama.
DICTATORS for OBAMA is a new group... it will be headed up by North KOREA’s KIM Jung Un. They’ll raise 4 trillion dollars by STEALING money from their citizens!!
