Glenn Beck’s heartfelt goodbye to Hugo Chavez

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

The Glenn Beck Program paid Hugo Chavez his due today, going over all the accomplishments the dictator achieved. From the rise in murder to the rise in his weight and wealth, Glenn covers all the wonderful ‘achievements’ that left Venezuela with runaway inflation and food shortages.

The segment was full of red berets and fake tears, as each host took their time to mock the deceased Communist dictator. First to the stage was Pat Gray, who focused on the wonder that was the healthcare system under Hugo Chavez.

“It is fitting that after making the Venezuelan healthcare system the envy of the entire planet Hugo Chavez refused to utilize it leaving more space available for the people he loved and he left a lot of space. The specialist kidney unit in Caracas has been completely empty for nearly a year. No one is there. Not a single patient. Doctors have been turning patients away ever since the hospital’s water treatment plant broke down months ago,” Pat said. “Fortunately Hugo, whom we just lost, made no one with kidney failure had to put up with a hospital with less than stellar water treatment.”

“Hugo after being diagnosed with pelvic cancer left his country repeatedly for the slightly less topnotch yet still amazing stellar medicine of Fidel Castro’s Cuba. Yet because of his commitment to global warming he refused to fly to Cuba one more time for treatment. If he just gotten one more treatment from Cuba he’d still be alive today and so would the hopes of millions in Venezuela.”

Stu then turned the floor over to Glenn, who delivered a wamrm, heartfelt…and mocking eulogy of the deceased communist leader.

“Venezuela, no the world, has lost a great leader, has lost a great dictator and fabulous strongman. Hugo Chavez’s fourteen year of reign of wonderful socialism and heavy-handed oppression came to an end earlier this week.”

“When Hugo came to power only 77% of the Venezuela’s economy was based on oil. Today it’s up to a robust 96% of the economy.In just 14 short years Hugo Chavez was able to rid Venezuela of nearly every industry other than state run oil. This as we all know allowed people more free time to relax.”

“Hugo seized control over the military, the judiciary, the Congress, the banking system, the aluminum industry, cement, gold, iron, farming, transportation, electricity and food production. Also the electoral council and the media. That way those who used to work in those industries would no longer have to worry at night about those responsibilities. He was able to free Venezuela from the plague of private investment which dropped 43%.”

“To reflect the changes he was making in the economy he renamed the currency, and changed it from the bolívar to the bolívar fuerte meaning the strong bolívar with the strength that the Venezuelan economy their currency only dropped 66% in value. And inflation is a mere 23% right now. But friends gathered here today think about this: had Hugo not renamed the currency can you imagine how far its value could have dropped if he wouldn’t have told everybody that it was a strong bolívar?”

“Imagine like our beloved President inherited a whopping $34 billion in debt, and he faced some head winds, but he turned that $34 billion in debt into $150 billion in debt. Which again sounds like our President can do a little better.”

“Chavez’s policies have allowed the poor more touch with their families by getting away from their electrical devices and he’s accomplished this by bringing power outages and rolling blackouts to all the cities in all of the hinterlands of Venezuela. Through uncontrolled spending, ex-appropriations, price controls, monetary expansion and other beautiful tenets of socialism, Hugo helped his people do more with less.”

“Sure there have been shortages of basic goods and water rationing and blackouts. And despite nearly $1 trillion in oil revenue the nation is on the verge of collapse which will bring the opportunity for the Venezuelan people to be even closer. More togetherness for the people that he loved so dearly.”

“Through his corruption an ineptitude, Hugo was was able to oversee a massive in caress in the murder rate from 25 per 1,000 to 45.1 per 100,000 in 2011. He nearly doubled the murder rate, thus helping Venezuelans get in touch with how life is precious is. Now they don’t take a single minute, a single stroll in the park, sending their kids off to school for granted. It might be the last stroll they ever take.”

“While the rate of serious poverty in the country didn’t go down as much as it did in some of surrounding Latin American countries that practice capitalism, Chavez lowered his rate through redistribution of wealth – taking from the evil rich, confiscating their land and possessions and giving it to others. He stopped all the irritating debates about his policy by seizing control or simply shutting down the media. That’s allowed his people just to relax, slow down and enjoy some of that salsa.”

“Finally Hugo Chavez was able to warn his people about the threat. The threat that not only they face but every citizen of every country in all of mankind. He was able to warn his people from the threat from Jews. Letting Venezuelans know about the Jewish influence over the banks and allowed him to take possession of those banks during his election campaign. Against an opposition candidate, he warned his people ‘Don’t let yourself be poisoned by the wandering Jews.’ Good advice, Hugo.”

“Speaking of election Hugo took the suspense out of them by rigging them in his favor. That way his people never had to worry about losing him until today. Sadly now all of us who loved Hugo Chavez now we’ve lost him. Death was just one thing Hugo couldn’t rig, couldn’t repossess, couldn’t redistribute.”

“They’ve lost their beloved Hugo, and now so have we.”

      Based on history, I have to say it is a fair probability of it occurring; from what I have heard and seen on some foreign news services soon after Chavez left the world to see God, the leader of his bodyguard and some key militia and enforcer personnel loyal to Chavez ‘suffered heart attacks.’

    How dare you mock Chavez….in his prime he was a great boxer and a great humanitarian, or something like that….I’ll bet Jesus and Michael will need to pull up a chair cuz God only has 2 hands to sit on. As a dick-tator he gave us the best gas, and taught many people to cuss in spanish as they snuck into Texas, Az, NM, and Chavezfornia. I just wish  he could have died painlessly (like his victims) in his sleep….(30 years ago). The world will never forget you and POTUS the clown has one less demon to hug. Tears in heaven for ya Huge-O.

    Glenn the sarcasm was overboard, and here is the nutshell eulogy for Chavez…

    He is now room-temperature and impersonating Lenin. May he now understand what it means to face God on His great throne of judgement all will stand before in their time.

    Chavez was a tyrant, despot and a true threat to the world; good riddance and Thanks be to God.

    Below is a brief bio of who these multi millionaires & dictator supporters like Michael Moore, Bill Delahunt-D-MA, Jesse Jackson, or  Sean Penn are supporting.
    Hugo Chavez can be considered a Fascist .
    Dictator by decree , Hugo Chavez, nationalized business or property he wanted , Chavez’s personal army ‘chavistas’ were violent (sometimes fatal) towards the political opposition or just people they did not like, socialized society , very anti-semitic & anti-catholic (he wanted to reorganized the church & Chavez said that ‘jews own all the world’s wealth’ (which is what the german socialist ruler 30s-40s said), many opposition activists were jailed or are still missing, Chavez nationalized most media outlets ,etc, etc..
    Chavez had a growing military & was a close military ally of Ahamdinejad’s Iran. Hugo Chavez supported Bashir (Bashir was accused of genocide in Darfar).

    • Anonymous

      Altho he said that the Jews own all the wealth,yet he managed to set aside $billions for himself,and finance his corpse embalment in perpetuity.Perhaps he borrowed this money from the banks,and now they will collect at the judgement seat.
      “It’s appointed for[all]men to die,and after that “The judgement”,oddly enough by a son of a Jewish mother and stepfather.Hmmm,I wonder how he will plead.He should try find a jewish lawyer.I’m sure there may be a lot of lawyers in Hades.

            How can you say there is no truth there?  The facts speak for themselves.  Chavez amassed a billionaire’s fortune by destroying and confiscating private property, trampling civil rights and personal liberty, and simultaneously tanking the economy.  He basically stole the country, and got away with it by blinding the population from his monumental hypocricy.  His life is indefensible, sorry.   

        • ThorsteinVeblen2012

          Hugo Chavez was democratically elected. He worked for the interests of the Venezuelan people not the few at the top.

          Glenn works for the few at the top here not the American people. Of course he’s going to call him a dictator. That’s how he earns his money.

          Beck has created a little pond of thinking that you like swimming in even if the water is stagnant.

          • hardboil

            “Democratically” elected?  Do you really believe that?  How can you say he “worked” for the people while he amassed a fortune for himself worth billions?  Glenn works for himself… not for “the few at the top”.   Beck’s “little pond” was created by the founders of this nation.  We will continue to swim in it until the socialists have succeeded in draining it.  Then Hell will surely follow.

    Apparently some people have missed the point.   Chavez isn’t a man to be mourned.  If you can’t truly realize that then you need to examine your head.  The point of this was to satire certain groups of people’s sadness at the passing of this evil dictator.  The man was a sad excuse for a leader and only desired to inflate his own personality cult, social status, and power.  He stood on the backs of his people professing populist bull****, to rally them to his side only to keep them poor and destitute.  This is the fallacy of socialism, it is an inherently flawed system that only serves those in power, propped up by “promises” to the people.  This man rubbed elbows with the mad-man Ahmadenijad and courted his Revolutionary Guard.  And people actually mourn and celebrate this man…?!

    The cold fact of reality is that some people are better off dead, and the world is better without them…sad, but no less true.  With Chavez gone, perhaps now Venezuela can move towards some remnant of a representative government and a thriving middle class…there is actual hope for the people of Venezuela at this point.  I pray it doesn’t get squandered..

    I feel sad for Hugo.  He died so that the world would know that all people die sooner or later.  My only wish is that our own beloved leader gets the opportunity to be judged by his peers in a way that will allow all mankind and womankind to know what can be accomplished by those ignorant fools who voted for the likes of Fidel, Hugo, Adolf and Hussein.  That these ignorant nincompoops lived during the same century will be noted by historians who tend to love, respect and totally adore small minded dictators who don’t have a clue about governing fairly that type of liberal government that they purpose by don’t fully understand.  It’s sad that more than 50% of the American voters don’t know a hole in the ground from the hole in their heads when it comes to picking their beloved leaders.  Hugo Chavez died and the world will remember that he, also, was a very foolish person just like Adolf Hitler and Joe Stalin and Fidel Castro and our own insane Hussein.  Just saying!

Why don’t people in this country wake up! I wish the people of Venezuela had a chance to speak out- then we would get the truth and it might shut these morons up who are acting as tho the world lost a good man. Are you freaking kidding me??

     The irony of how moronic this statement was – is when you have to span back almost some 75yrs to pick out dictators (and 1 not) to make a point, that’s pretty weak. Even moreso, when you feel you have to take someone who is Democratically elected as Pres Obama was, and use his middle name to insert a racial & ethnic undertone, that shows how low of a human being one must become to get his point across… which can only mean, we must invest more in EDUCATION if we want Americans to at least ‘sound’ more educated. Alas, at this point, this is a clear case where they do not. Chaves was a complicated man with many faults, much like our own Pres Bush. Both men truly believed what they were doing, at least one of them did it for the people, and not war machines & corporations.

    There’s an argument for & against Chavez – too bad low informed people didn’t bring it. Lol – using someone’s middle name to make a racial & political statement.

    Hugo Chavez was a great man and achieved great things, please people don’t listen to this and look deeper. Chavez was the most democratically elected leader on earth! Venezuela’s growth over the last tens years is 47.4%, Unemployment 7.7% and literacy 100% all better than the US. He built subsidised supermarkets to feed the poor and now 98% of Venezuelan’s eat 3 means a day. He built hundreds of thousands of homes for people and eliminated child homelessness. Caring about people and not the rich is a good thing, Jesus would be a Socialist. Wake up America!
    Mr Beck sometimes your nasty lies and made up “facts” can be funny and we laugh at you, but now you’re trashing a dead man who dedicated his life to others. are you proud of yourself?

      You are out of your mind. How can anyone be as blind as you to what’s actually happening.  “A great man?,  Are you kidding me!  The man was a control freakin’ dictator.

      • Mark

        How he is a dictator? He was elected repeatedly by the Venezuelan people in free and fair elections, as observed by your own Jimmy Carter. 
        Research the facts of his regime and don’t listen to Beck, if he’s so bad why is he so loved in his homeland?

    Did Chavez ever pay his cocaine dealer with a blow job blumpkin? No? So he’s not like Glenn Beck at all

    What a feckless, useless dastard, Glenn Beck is. This imbecile has done a disservice to the American People that Chavez gave heating oil to. Enjoy it Americans, it confirms everything we ever thought of your mongrel nation.

      Oh, Mark – coming along here with all those pesky ‘fact’ things – come on, you’re bringing down the grave-dancing partaaayyyy! Glenn says what he says is the truth, why should anybody bother to go and find out the real truth? Glenn’s truth is far easier and doesn’t in any way contradict what I want to believe – why bother thinking any other way?

    At least Hugo cared about the people. Without his humanitarian work in the United States in providing fuel for the winter, 170 million people would have died. How dare Glenn Beck poke fun at a man who Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Oliver Stone and one of the Kennedys love with all their heart. When will these hater learn that to spread the wealth is the type of “social justice” that personsified Hugo’s agenda for all.

     Bravo Glenn.  Go to hell you Communist bastards who worship Satan.  You, who want to take but never give.  You who hate the God who created you.  You who make your own rules with no moral values and nothing is wrong.  Liar’s,and deceivers just as your father Satan is.  Who else use’s the term “ignorant masses?”  Your condescending remarks, show your true feeling’s about individuals, other than yourself.  You and your friends are so much smarter and will determine who will live and die.  edtoohey it  appears you are speaking of yourself except for the Fox New’s bit. in your comment.

  • Zooropa Fly

    Listen folks, what Chavez was resisting was nwo occupation. He was a hero for the real free world. Likewise Ahmedin.., Assad, the late Colonel, Hussain… What they are / were resisting is the potential for global governance, currency, policing, justice. Forget caps, commy, left, right blah blah… smoke and mirrors.

    Yes Hugo Chavez was a dictator. he also worshipped the same god as you Glenn.  This message could have been the more powerful without the props and such, how about  talking about alternative leadership in Venezuela that could undo what Chavez did, way more constructive. Mocking the dead isn’t a very Christian trait is it.  Your ego is getting the best of you,

    Thank you Glenn for bringing us such a loving tribute to a very sensitive and fat dictator.  Your humility can be felt right through my internet provider’s servers… right through the keys on my laptop.  Mystical, huh?  We have all been so blessed, and just maybe a wee little bit disgusted with the life of this wonderful and fat man!  “Long live King Hugo… may he live in the ground forever!”

    • Zooropa Fly

      “fat” !  Is that really the best you can do, and from a Yank !!   Couldn’t make it up.  And btw you’re NO Christian.

  • JuanPablo Redon

    Pretty damn disrespectfull, lets see if these assholes have the dignity to laugh in front of Chavez’s daughter. Yes a terrible president, but still deserves respect. He did make it possible for many low income citizens to go to university.

    Shouldn’t George Bush deserve the same disrespect after taking USA to a false war? Lets see how they react to that.

    I think Glenn stepped outside the bounds of Christians limits mocking a death of whomever it was.  He could have expressed his dislike of the man and his activities but to carry or in a mocking fashion was, in my opinion, was a little too much.  Ignoring the death of such a terrible person would have sent a greater message.

Glen it is wrong. Think about it Glen, think…and think and reconsider and realise its wrong you could have express your opinion without mockery. You’re not little children! Don’t act like one!
