Rumsfeld Likens Chavez's Rise to Hitler

US Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld likened Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to Adolf Hitler, reflecting continuing tension in relations between the United States and the Latin American government.

Rumsfeld, asked during a National Press Club appearance Thursday about indications of a deteriorating general relationship between Washington and parts of Latin America, said he believes such a characterization "misses the mark."

"We saw dictatorships there. And then we saw most of those countries, with the exception of Cuba, for the most part move towards democracies," he said. "We also saw corruption in that part of the world. And corruption is something that is corrosive of democracy."

The secretary acknowledged that "we've seen some populist leadership appealing to masses of people in those countries. And elections like Evo Morales in Bolivia take place that clearly are worrisome."

"I mean, we've got Chavez in Venezuela with a lot of oil money," Rumsfeld added. "He's a person who was elected legally _ just as Adolf Hitler was elected legally _ and then consolidated power and now is, of course, working closely with Fidel Castro and Mr. Morales and others."

Well Mr Chavez it seems you have joined a long queue of people that Mr Rumsfeld compares to Hitler including 'Mr 'living dead' Abu Musab al-Zarqawi the one legged claimed leader of Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

I wonder if Mr Rumsfeld merely wanted his Venezuelan friend to join him in the 'we have been compared to Hitler and we didn't even get a lousy T-Shirt' club for North Korea have already compared Donald Rumsfeld to Hitler and so have many others.

Maybe it works on a points system and the world is fighting it out to see whom can be compared to Adolf Hitler the most. Republicans do it, Democrats do it, even an Arch Bishop has been known to compare someone to Hitler. But one thing is for sure, nobody on this planet has been compared to Hitler more frequently then George W Bush.

So it looks like your going to have to work much harder Mr Chavez. Your clearly not annoying enough people if you have any desires on the title.

Well, now we know that Rummy, like many of his ilk, has never bothered to study history.

I'm pretty sure that I, a 16 year old girl, would be compared to Hitler as well since I *gasp* drive a hybrid. :P Pretty sure thats a big no no in the Bush administration.

It seems that the only person Rumsfeld hasn't compared to Hitler is George W. Bush.

And that might actually fit.

Lets see, Rumsfield needs to study history, poor Hitler (wtf??), and, my personal favorite: Im 16, mommy bought my love from daddy at the cost of a hybrid and somehow my familys dysfunction has something to do with whether President Bush- a man I'll never perchance to meet and whose policies I admit are easier to blindly ridicule than understand- would approve of the friggin' car I drive? Really?


If any of you understood the real world you may understand why the things you say are so terribly depressing.


Chalk it up to "Free speech" I guess. Im glad we didnt get around to saving the planet for our next generation cause the "next generations" get dumber every generation.

Good luck, kids, youre gonna need it!

(whoo boy are their kids gonna be hurtin')

Yeah you can delete this now, buddy but you know I'm right!

Has anyone checked out his site , he says I consider myself "awake and aware of reality". LOL yea of course he does. nobody reads his blog so clearly nobody has ever pointed out the fallacy in his self created understanding of the world.

My sympathy to the people who have to read such drivel whilst trying to keep up with the latest on this site. go find somewhere else to play 'the grid' your just making yourself look foolish.

well done for proving to the rest of the world that some people on the right can actually read a thread without having to take a sleeping tablet half way through. Sadly your don't seem to be able to grasp the concept of sarcasm or factual accuracy. But hey that's your problem 'kid'

As for Bush's polices it is quite clear the man does not understand them himself so how would you expect more evolved people to do so ?

It is also obvious to see why you would support him . You came here without a clue as to whats going on . thought you had it all worked out and then got shown to be 100 percent wrong in your previous comment.

But does that shame you?
Or concern you that you could be so completely wrong on everything you said ?
Do you say sorry for insulting people who have lost friends and family to terrorism ?
Are you disgusted at your own very immature behavior ?

Obviously not , you come back and post again as if nobody is going to notice that the accuracy of your 'facts' within your comments is zero. hmmm You and Mr Bush clearly deserve each other.

stay happy in your little 2% of the planet that has any respect for GWB . If you don't mind I will stay with the 98 % of planet earth that can see him for what he is.

Of course your message can stay. the vast majority of the world whom you from your tiny little minority perspective consider to be less wise than yourself (how egotistical) would be interested in what your little group has to say.

As for you being 'right' well self praise is no recommendation and I will gladly leave your 10 out of 10 attempt at showing the world your reading skills.

thanks for you comment.

Quite a rant, grid. What you lacked in basic grammer and spelling you made up for in... Well, come to think of it, you didn't make up for your impoverished grasp of your own native language at all.

By the way, if you bump into Rummy, tell him his command of history is as poor as your command of the English language.

Excellent commentary. The sad thing is that the more people compare fill-in-the-blank with Hitler the more we forget the horrible atrocities he committed. Might as well start calling people Satan or Dr. Doom.
