The Shameless Moral Chutzpah of Vaclav Havel

Vaclav Havel is a Hero of Western Imperialism because for years he was the bourgoise President-In-Waiting for Czechoslovakia. Hailing from a rich landowning family, all he had to do was bide his time until the decrepit system of Soviet socialism collapsed in order to take over the country. (No such thing is possible in the U.S. Empire, because all potential opposition leaders in places like Latin America are systematically murdered. Miraculously, in a few countries new people's leaders have arisen anyway.)

Havel is an adoring fan of fascist dictator Augusto Pinochet (not a secret, but a fact never mentioned in the U.S. press). So it's sickeningly hypocritical (if not downright cynical) whenever Havel presumes to climb on a moral high horse and denounce/lecture.

Most recently he was at it on the NY Times op-ed page (May 11, 2009; May 10 in their online archive), denouncing the "tyrants" of the UN Human Rights Commission.

Sure, the UN is full of shit. A club of bosses of the world's nations would have to be loathsome. But the idea that Havel hates tyrants and loves democracy is a sick joke. Capitalism is what he loves. Salvador Allende, the President of Chile murdered by the fascist traitor Pinochet, was a democrat- too democratic, as it turned out. Since Havel celebrates his murderer, Havel is obviously an ANTI-democrat, notwithstanding his grotesque posturing to the contrary.

Of course the NY Times is guilty of the worst kind of bad faith for not only running such deceptive and dishonest propaganda, but for promulgating a totally fraudulent worldview, the purpose of which is to create and sustain a false consciousness of reality among the public. This false consciousness if a basic reason why America is hopeless and cannot evolve in a positive direction. (All you dupes of the Pied Piper Obama, President "Hope & Change," I hope you're keeping count of his broken campaign promises. He's been breaking several a week now.)
