A history lesson for Chavez

Hugo Chavez does not seem to be up to speed with German political history, judging from this little outburst at Frau Merkel:

"The Venezuelan leader criticized Chancellor Angela Merkel for belonging to the conservative Christian Democratic Union, calling the movement "the same right wing that supported Hitler and fascism".

Well, the CDU was founded by Adenauer, who would have no truck with the Nazis, and consequently spent time in The Big House. Still, why let the facts stand in the way of a good rant?

Always rely on a socialist to prove Godwin's Law.

Methinks Chavez also needs a history lesson on Uncle Joe Stalin's partiality to the odd bit of mass-murder.

Sounds like Chavez thinks Hitler was a right-winger.

Clearly he has no idea what title has as its beginning the diminutive "Nazi" .
