Cindy the Red

Just in case anyone had missed her allegiance to the murderous Marxist quasi-religion, Cindy Sheehan showed her true color in Venezuela at the "World Social Forum":

Chavez joins activist Sheehan to bash Bush

CARACAS, Venezuela (
Reuters) - Venezuela's left-wing president, Hugo Chavez, joined U.S. anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan on Sunday to attack President George W. Bush and the Iraq war at the close of the World Social Forum.

"The war in Iraq will end, our troops will come home, Bush will be impeached and he will be brought to justice," said Sheehan, who held a vigil outside Bush's Texas ranch.

Reuters thought it necessary to remind us that Cindy the Red spent quite a while near the president's ranch last year. Was it really that forgettable?

While they were busy reminding us about Cindy's antics, why omit a reminder that Venezuela's Chavez is a Marxist in the mold of the world-class murderer, Lenin? Is "left-wing" really the same thing in their opinion?

According to
the BBC, the forum included lots about Chavez. Is that a surprise? The weakness of the left for personality cults seems never to go away despite the 20th century's several clear cases of the horrible outcomes -- Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc.

Will the "mainstream media" in the U.S.A. tell people much about this forum and Cindy's enthusiasm for Chavez and his ilk?
