Karl Rove says Obama is like a Latin American dictator. Hmmm... interesting.
Edited on Sun Apr-26-09 08:35 AM by ck4829
Karl Rove: "(W)e're going to turn ourselves into the moral equivalent of a Latin American country run by colonels in mirrored sunglasses. ... (T)hat might be fine in some little Latin American country that's run by, you know, the latest junta -- it may be the way that they do things in Chicago -- but that's not the way we do things here in America."

This is what the Valech Report has stated as just some of the things that went on in the Pinochet regime when they captured someone who didn't agree with them:

* Repeated beatings
* Deliberate corporal lesions
* Bodily hangings (suspensions)
* Forced positions
* Application of electricity
* Threats
* Mock execution by firing squad
* Humiliation
* Stripping down to nakedness
* Sexual aggression and violence
* Witnessing and listening to torture committed on others
* Russian roulette
* Witnessing the execution of other detainees
* Confinement in subhuman conditions
* Deliberate privation of means of existence
* Sleep deprivation or interruption
* Asphyxia
* Exposure to extreme temperatures

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valech_Report

Notice anything similar to what Pinochet did and the "enhanced interrogations" that Bush allowed?

But wait, there's more!

Then there was Pinochet's murders of dissidents outside of Latin America with his other dictator buddies in Operation Condor, one of these terrorist activities was only blocks away from our Capitol (Orlando Letelier) and the fact that Pinochet let a pedophile Nazi do some of the torturing over in Colonia Dignidad.

Anyone else get the feeling that Karl Rove has no idea what he is talking about?

1. More Jury Nullification...
Good old Karl's out spewing shit again, eh? So what! Other than Faux noise, he has ZERO credibility and is a liability to his crumbling and inept party. Every time he shows his mug, he reminds people who his boss was and how together they destroyed civil right and turned the federal government into their own syndicate.

Mr. "Math" likes to think he's still "the archetect"...but what has he built? A deck of cards that collapsed in '06 (why his buddy boooshie threw him under the bus). Rove doesn't need to say anything factual (he never did)...his job now is to distort the boooooshie record for the kool-aid drinkers.

7. "He's Such A Nice Guy"
I'm seeing Blago playing this same game. They know that sooner rather than later, there'll be a indictment with their name on it and they'll have to defend their crimes. They can't. So, why not just confuse the jury...make 'em think Mr. Math is such a nice guy who could have never done what he was accused of. Hell, he had to be a "good guy" cause he was on teevee.

I'm hoping that if it's not the Seiglemann case that nails him, then it'll be the ongoing DOJ probe. No matter, Rove is a discredited talking head who represents a regime that a majority will always see as the more corrupt and inept in our history. Spin and project as he will, the more he tries to "rehabilitate" his image, the more he reminds a majority as to his culpability in the worst of the past 8 years.

Cheers...

4. The fact that this scumbag thinks he has...
...any sort of credibility--is appalling.

"The Architect" of the worst, most-hated White House Administration EVER--feels he has the bona fides to
stand on his steel-reinforced soapbox and talk down to us?

Stupid and delusional.

5. Projection -- bingo!
Bush did have much in common with Latin American Dictators. His paternalistic, self-aggrandizing attitude, the demand for loyalty. The CIA must have learned some things from Latin American fascist types when they were training all those death squads.
