No Justice...

South America’s resurgent left is a threat to liberty

Olavo de Carvalho

BrookesNews.Com, march 5, 2007

Since my arrival in this hospitable country in May 2005, I have been trying to explain to Americans that Lula would never be able — much less willing — to help them to stop Hugo Chavez. I have spread this obvious truth in lectures delivered to audiences of politicians, journalists, strategical analysts and intelligence experts. Though some of them agree with me, the prevalent opinion remains unaltered: Lula is America’s best hope in Latin America. Even now that attorney-general Alberto Gonzales had to swallow an explicit refusal from the Brazilian government to serve as a muzzle for the Venezuelan mad dog, nobody from Washington has admitted that the Brazilian fruitcake hidden somewhere in the Virginian brushwood was right after all.

I have been explaining, in a more general way, that Lula would never help the Americans to do anything against the Latin-American radical Left, and especially not against the FARC, the Colombian narcoguerrillas who inject huge annual amounts of cocaine into both the Brazilian and American markets. As to the many Muslim terrorists sheltered in the Brazilian southern border, there is no need to say that the Brazilian government will not support any action against them: it does not even recognize that they exist.

Lula is the founder and one of the masterminds of the “Sao Paulo Forum” (I will call it the SPF), the strategic headquarters of the Latin-American revolutionary Left. The SPF, which gathers both legal parties (Communist Parties of Cuba, Venezuela, etc) and criminal organizations (FARC, MIR, ELN, Sendero Luminoso), is stronger than any singular Latin-American government, if we take into account that it has at its service dozens of terrorist gangs and the armies of the countries governed by its member-parties. The Brazilian army, reduced to tatters since the Latin-American demilitarization campaign inaugurated thirty years ago under the personal guidance of president Jimmy Carter, is unable to face a single branch of the SPF, such as the FARC, and much less the SPF as a whole.

The Brazilian military is now so deeply conscious of its own weakness that its old anti-communist pride is giving way to opportunistic accommodations with the radical Left, using “nationalism” (bitter anti-Americanism) as common ground for their unholy alliance (you cannot imagine the amount of military hate I have been attracting against myself for writing about this). Lula, Lula’s party, and Lula’s government are nothing without the support of the SPF, both domestically and in Latin America.

In 1990, Lula created that organization while facing near ruin in his political career. And later on he became a successful politician with the help of the FSP. If he betrays it, he will not stay alive for five seconds. In order to evaluate the depth of Lula’s party commitment to the SPF and to its self-proclaimed goal of “reconquering in Latin America all that was lost in Eastern Europe,” you should only read these lines of the message sent by the FARC to the SPF’s 13th general assembly, which took place in San Salvador last January 7th:

“In 1990 the socialist field was falling apart; all its structures were as weak as a castle of cards, and the enemies of socialism were celebrating nonstop. Theories like “the End of History” were being proposed, and many revolutionaries around the world were astonished, not knowing what had gone wrong and enabled such a catastrophe. Utopia was being dissipated and hopelessness took over innumerable movement leaders.

Cuba stood alone, enduring the worst crisis ever experienced by any other country. Imperialism wrongly believed that the moment had come to put an end to socialism in the Americas… It was in that moment that the PT (Lula’s Workers’ Party) launched the formidable proposal to create the Sao Paulo Forum… This initiative, which quickly caught on, was a lifesaver and a hope that not everything was lost. How right we were! Sixteen years have passed and the political scene today is totally different.”

In short: the communist movement was drowning, the Workers'’Party — Lula’s party — saved it, and did it under Lula’s personal inspiration. Every single one of the SPF member parties agrees with that statement. No matter how much the World Economic Forum may praise him for his alleged “conversion to capitalism,” Lula is a hero of Latin-American communism and will not exchange this title for that of a dead traitor.

There is no substantial contradiction between running a capitalist economy while draining its energies to feed a growing communist movement and to support the arrangements for a continental “war of the whole people” against the USA, as planned by Hugo Chavez. Lula’s government can be defined, alas, by that two-headed strategy wisely grounded on the mutual independence between economy and conspiracy.

Now that George W. Bush visits his so-called “good friend” in Brasilia, March 8th, the good friend’s party and his many allies in the radical Left prepare to receive the American president with the largest and harshest anti-American manifestation ever seen in Brazil. In the privacy of his cabinet at the presidential residence in Brasilia, Lula will play America’s friend while his own subordinates and followers will be right outside the palace shouting “death to Yankee imperialism.” George W. Bush will do his best to pretend that the protests come from Lula's foes. I hope he does not seriously believe it.

Great collection of political cartoons, Wordsmith... as usual. :)

Yep, out guys always either step down or do jail time but the libs keep re-electing known criminals like Ted Kennedy. Al Gore is a scam artist but who cares? He's a Democrat and can do as he pleases.

Still waiting for Sandy Burglar to come in for his lie detector test, or how about getting going on the William (Frozen Assets) Jefferson investigation?

Why are these guys getting away with this, but Libby cant remember who said what to whom years ago and he faces 30 years in jail?

Great post and thanks for the link. I just posted the top cartoon on my 2nd post on Libby.

I hadn't seen the sacrifice one until now and I think I like that one better.

I'm continually adding on new cartoons, as they come; also, Easter egg articles.
