Shocka! A Socialist Politician Threatens Violence If He Doesn't Get His Way!

And take one guess which thug who has run his resource rich country into the ground is making these threats.

Venezuela's increasingly bellicose [I'd hate to see what they called his prior acts.-ed.]President Hugo Chavez warned that he may put tanks on the streets if a former television star running for his Socialist Party loses a state election this month.

Chavez is expected to lose control of some key states and cities in the November 23 nationwide elections for governors and mayors.

In Carabobo, where a Chavez loyalist and former late-night talk show host risks losing the governorship [David Letterman's next career move?-ed.], Chavez told party activists he might use the tanks to "defend the people."

"If you let the oligarchy return to government then maybe I'll end up sending the tanks of the armoured brigade out to defend the revolutionary government[and spread the wealth-ed.]," he said late on Saturday.

In recent weeks the former tank officer also has threatened to jail the country's top opposition leader, Manuel Rosales, whom he accuses of corruption and of plotting to kill him [pot, meet kettle-ed.].



I looked to 2010, and saw this is Missouri and Ohio.
