Venezuela: Belafonte hearts Chavez

CaribPundit is disgusted that Jamaican-American performing legend and human rights campaigner Harry Belafonte supports Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez. “Fer cryin’ out loud, Harry,” says CaribPundit in a post entitled “Just shut up and sing Day-O” (referring to the song for which Belafonte is best known), “ask Germany, Italy, France, the U.K., Sweden and the Nordics, Russia, China, the early American Pilgrims. Read some history, man, socialist programs NEVER work. Okay, ‘kay, Mussolini got the trains to run on time. . . or was that Hitler?”
