Chavez Allies Attack New Opponent Capriles as Jewish, Gay
The most furious accusations have come from state media commentator Mario Silva, who often targets Chavez’s foes on his late night TV show, “The Razorblade.”
‘The Enemy is Zionism’
Silva insulted opposition leaders and then read out a purported police document reporting Capriles was caught in a car having sex with another man in 2000.
Capriles denied the allegation and said the document was falsified. Police have not commented.
Another state radio commentator, Adal Hernandez, wrote a vitriolic profile of Capriles, highlighting his Jewish family background and titled: “The Enemy is Zionism.” Capriles, a practicing Catholic, has not responded to the profile.
As Chavez now fully drops the mask to reveal his filthy anti-Semitic, homophobic core beliefs. I suppose it would be asking too much to expect that all the figures on the left who have attempted to lionize Chavez as a latter-day Che Guevara to speak out against his atrocious positions. Mainly, because many of these folks are also in the “Gaza Flotilla” camp. Here’s guessing that there will be a minor outcry about his statements on homosexuality, but very little from the left on his anti-Semitism.
