Ahmadinejad: Chavez will rise again, or something

posted at 3:41 pm on March 6, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

The heart bleeds, Ahmadinejad.

The Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said Chávez would “return on resurrection day”. He said he had “no doubt that Chávez will return to Earth” along with Jesus and Imam Mahdi, the most revered figure among Shia Muslims, to help “establish peace, justice and kindness” in the world. Announcing a day of mourning, Ahmadinejad also said he believed something “suspicious” caused Chávez’s cancer.

Oh, you mean the kind of “peace, justice, and kindness” he established in Venezuela? I’m sure the world can hardly wait for that messianic reappearance. As for that whole “suspicious” death thing, that’s the same line Chavez’s vice president Nicolas Maduro was peddling yesterday, hinting that “historical enemies” were responsible for their dear leader’s illness:

 

Chavez himself was super paranoid about the causes behind his cancer, and didn’t shy away from suggesting that the United States was behind a bout of illnesses affecting Latin American leaders — ’cause hey, if even the smallest chance to defile the United States presents itself, why not take it, right? No doubt they’d like their people to think that the U.S. is that cravenly enterprising, even if it is only about ridding the world of an autocratic, corrupt strongman directly inflicting misery upon his masses and allying himself with the world’s most nefarious actors. Those actors, by the way, were also distraught about the loss of one of the world’s pioneeringly violent and underhanded leftist leaders:

In Syria, where civil war has claimed an estimated 70,000 lives over the past two years, there was gratitude for Chávez’s unstinting support in the face of western hostility. The state news agency, Sana, praised Chávez’s “honourable stance towards the conspiracy against Syria as he announced repeatedly his solidarity with the Syrian leadership and people in the face of the heinous imperialistic campaign hatched against it”. …

Rafael Correa, president of Ecuador and one of Chávez’s closest allies, said: “We have lost a revolutionary, but millions of us remain inspired.” …

In Cuba, President Raúl Castro’s government declared two days of national mourning and ordered the flag to fly at half-mast, declaring its “deep and excruciating sorrow” at the news and describing him as “one of their most outstanding sons”. …

The Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Chávez was “a great leader”, while Russia’s UN ambassador ,Vitaly Churkin, called his death a tragedy.

…Er, agree to disagree. The real tragedy here is only that Chavez managed to hold on to power for as long as he did:

All of this could have been predicted, and wasn’t particularly surprising from a president who believed that one must take the side of any enemy of the “empire.” That Zimbabwe’s dictator Robert Mugabe was a “freedom fighter,” or that Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko presided over “a model of a social state.” Saddam Hussein was a “brother,” Bashar al-Assad had the “same political vision” as the Bolivarian revolutionaries in Venezuela. He saw in the madness of Col. Gaddafi an often overlooked “brilliance” (“I ask God to protect the life of our brother Muammar Gaddafi”). The brutal terrorist Carlos the Jackal, who praised the 9/11 attacks from his French jail cell, was “a good friend.” He praised and supported FARC, the terrorist organization operating in neighboring Colombia. The list is endless.

If Chavez returns, we will all know by the stench of sulphur where he has been.

Everyone is glued to C-Span2 or watching online. Might want to wait until the Filibuster is over.

BigGator5 on March 6, 2013 at 3:46 PM

May the ants have begun to eat him alive, both of them.

Schadenfreude on March 6, 2013 at 3:48 PM

Hey nut job, Chavy gave you aids before he left. Sucks to be you.

msupertas on March 6, 2013 at 3:52 PM

Chavez will rise again.

John 5:28 – Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

[29] And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

That headline looks funny.

Ahmadinejad: Chavez will rise again, or something crazy.

Ah.

Better.

Too bad the stench will be masked by that emanating from the White House.

Archivarix on March 6, 2013 at 3:56 PM

Nope.

You’ll be joining Hugo Chavez where he is NOW, Ahmadinedude.

…took World Religions…and I knew that Jesus was a prophet in Imadinnerjacket’s world…but I did not realize they believed in resurrection.

With Chávez out of the picture, those Hezbollah training camps in Venezuela are probably in jeopardy of closure.

John 11:25 – Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

Some “prophet,” when you don’t listen to Him.

And, had they listened to Jesus Christ, they would have had no reason for their Mohammed.

And so it goes.

OhEssYouCowboys on March 6, 2013 at 4:08 PM

Kevin Spacey, Sean Penn, Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover also hardest hit.

They will probably make it a national day of mourning in Hollywood too.

Raquel Pinkbullet on March 6, 2013 at 4:09 PM

Where’s the pool for who in the administration gets picked for his funeral and how many Mr Wonderful’s Chavez gets in the White House’s close to tearful public condolence.

Speakup on March 6, 2013 at 4:16 PM

ZombieChavez? Zombie in the well! Yeah, I can see it.

Blake on March 6, 2013 at 4:17 PM

There might be one thing better than chavez croakin and that would be if the iranian schmuck would go boots up some way……

Cause of Death: Inhalation of Sulfur fumes at the U.N.

He was never the same after that.

Curious, except for some blogger comments I’ve neither seen nor heard ANYTHING about the Chavez Family exchequer hovering (estimated) at over a BILLION dollar$.
Now why is that, do you suppose?

According to the Hollyweird’s, many leading Gimmedat’s plus a semi-retarded ex-POTUS, and Barbwa WaWa, Hugo Chavez was a Man of the People.
Who, as we may come to know, (assuming the Manure Spreading Media does any REAL reporting) re-directed Venezuela’s sizable natural resources income for his own use … and his family, of course.
He was a model leader for King Putt. Does anyone get the significance of their relationship?
