Chavez May Hasten Pace of Nazification Program
AZCONSERVATIVE ^ | 17 Feb 2007 | John Semmens

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez threatened to step up the pace of his Nazification program to deal with the emerging food crisis. Supermarket owners and food distributors have been put in a bind by government mandated controls that place the selling prices of their merchandise below the cost of obtaining new inventories.

“If they continue to disobey me, I’m going to take their properties and nationalize them,” Chavez said. “I cannot abide these blood-sucking capitalist parasites. My people must be freed from this pestilence even if it means I must personally exterminate every last one of them myself.”

Chavez has been intent on nationalizing “strategic” sectors of the economy since winning re-election in December. He has moved quickly to take over electricity and phone companies since the National Assembly gave him authority to enact sweeping measures by decree and accelerate the country’s transformation to a socialist economy modeled on the one established in Cuba by Fidel Castro.

President Chavez told a gathering of pensioners that he was building a “new Venezuela that will last for a thousand years” and is waiting for the “first excuse” to take “stern measures to ensure obedience and order prevail in the Venezuelan fatherland.”

Well it did wonders for the low power rice cooker industry in Cooobah. It only took 40 years to pay off.

"...the Venezuelan fatherland."

Fatherland. The word calls to mind another notorious (national) socialist.
