Even San Francisco Protesters Are Criticizing Chavez

by Brad Warbiany

Chavez is no stranger to criticism from those of us who are anti-socialism… But you know he’s screwed up when protesters in San Francisco are out for him:

Dozens of protesters opposed to the closure of a television station in Venezuela are sounding off in front of San Francisco’s Ferry Building.

About 50 demonstrators are marching around the plaza area in front of the San Francisco Ferry Building in protest of the abrupt closure of a popular Venezuelan television outlet.

Participants chanted “Libertad” and walked with their hands up in the air, according to KCBS reporter Tim Ryan, who is covering the event.

He describes the scene as being full of colorful Venezuelan flags and signs, one of which, was a 30-foot banner with painted handprints.

“This is a peaceful protest..we have no weapons in our hands..Hugo Chavez has all the weapons,” said protestor Gabriel Lee of Fremont.

Wow… San Franciscans are protesting someone who hates Bush as much as they do, and happens to be socialists, just like them.

It makes me wonder, just who are the people who still try to defend Chavez commenting on this blog?

  1. Wow… San Franciscans are protesting someone who hates Bush as much as they do, and happens to be socialists, just like them.

    Actually, there are a surprising large number of conservatives and libertarians living in San Francisco.

  2. Kevin,

    I agree… When I lived up there a few years back, I knew both of them!
