We Must Stop Halloween

Hugo Chavez says so!

Chavez warns of spooky US Halloween 'terrorism'

Quote:
President Hugo Chavez cautioned Venezuelan parents to protect their children from Halloween with a spooky warning that the US tradition is rooted in "terrorism."

"What they have implanted here, which is really a 'gringo' custom, is terrorism," Chavez said, quoted in the local press. "They disguise children as witches and wizards, that is contrary to our culture."
Our annual tradition is creating another generation of terrorists!

I have a friend who lived in Venezuela and every week he sends me a couple good Chavez quotes. Always good for a laugh.

And this annual tradition come from the Celtics in Ireland and Scotland.
But those haven't been terrorists, as Americans are no terrorists.

Chavez frightens me.
First he provided medical treatment and a better social infrastructure for his citizens, which is a good thing, and now he is campaigning against the USA and other modern industries. Just like Hitler did.

He creates an atmosphere of xenophobia and nobody knows what he wants. Or does somebody?
We should keep an eye on him.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think he will become a new Hitler or start a new war, but nonetheless his campaigning against other countries is not very healthy for the people or the region.

He is Fidel Castros love child!
And we know how great HE was for the island of Cuba.
His ideology took that nation down from real world to third world........

This is ridiculous. This is originally a Celtic fire festival and was only recently adapted as a holiday in the U.S. Chavez needs to hit the books.

He sounds like he really wants to rail against cultural imperialism, but his vocabulary is too limited for such nuance. Minus the "terrorism" word, countries around the world have said similar things about American customs sneaking in.
