Boss Hugo Chavez, the darlings of liberals worldwide for his principled stance of raping his country and imprisoning anyone who deigns to oppose him in word or thought, is now threatening farmers who actally dare to sell milk for cheese and other products in an attempt to make a profit.
Holy shit, Batman! Profits! What could come next?
Chavez to farmers: Sell within Venezuela or it's 'treason'
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- President Hugo Chavez threatened on Sunday to take over farms or milk plants if owners refuse to sell their milk for domestic consumption and instead seek higher profits abroad or from cheese-makers.
With the country recently facing milk shortages, Chavez said "it's treason" if farmers deny milk to Venezuelans while selling it across the border in Colombia or for gourmet cheeses.
"In that case the farm must be expropriated," Chavez said, adding that the government could also take over milk plants and properties of beef producers.
"I'm putting you on alert," Chavez said. "If there's a producer that refuses to sell the product ... and sells it at a higher price abroad ... ministers, find me the proof so it can be expropriated."
Addressing his Cabinet, he said: "If the army must be brought in, you bring in the army."
What is so utterly hilarious about this thug and his threats is that the Left accuses George W. Bush of doing this when he doesn't. But when their man does it, the Left either cheers or remains silent. Which is just what the Left did during the Holocaust and the mass murders in the USSR and China.
