Hugo Chavez’s First Blog Post Is Not Televised

by | 23rd, March 2010

HUGO Chavez, the leading socialist on the 24 omnibus to Camden and in Venzuela is getting a blog. And that’s just terrific because not too long ago Hugo was no fan of the web:

* “The Internet cannot be something open where anything is said and done. Every country has to apply its own rules and norms.”

That insight was spawned by German Chancellor Angel Merkel who, reprotedly, said soemthign similar. You know, Merkel, of whom Chavez says:

She is from the German right, the same that supported Hitler, that supported fascism, that’s the Chancellor of Germany today.

Oh, and he wanted to ban the locals from using Twitter as well:

* Chavez intends to ban Venezuelans from using twitter! Why?

Now Gawker tells us about that Chavez blog:

The prickly President of Venezuela has just about had it with the backstabby world of online political dissidence, and has vowed to fight back with a blog of his own. Generation Overshare, please welcome your soon-to-be newest comrade…

Yesterday, on his weekly radio show, “Hello President!”, Chávez said:The Internet is a trench in the struggle, because there’s a conspiracy current building up. It’s as if they had a gun, a cannon. They use so many pages and blogs, and terms like Blackberry and Twitter, these conspiracy currents.”

One problem: how do you synchronise your cl0cks with a place that has its own time zone?
