Chavismo, the political philosophy of Hugo Chavez is christian socialism. Chavez, the Venezuelan leader, has a strong christian identity and a strong socialist belief system. The American establishment constantly harps on about Chavez being friendly with Iran. If the American establishment did not want him to be friendly with Iran then they should not have made efforts to isolate him diplomatically and demonize him. It’s only to be expected that governments shunned by America would become buddies with eachother.
A chavista is one who supports the political ideologies of Hugo Chavez. Hugo Chavez is a tri-racial man. He is part white, part black, and part american indian. He is not a black man, although if he had been born in America he may have been considered black according to the one drop rule(the idea that to have any black blood makes one black racially). The absence of a one drop rule in Venezuela may be a reason why Chavez honors the Venezuelan liberty fighter Bolivar so much. Bolivar was a white revolutionary in Venezuela who fought for independence from Spain. Chavez calls Venezuela under his regime a Bolivarian republic because he has dedicated himself to the cause of freeing Venezuela from financial control by the USA. Chavez is an enemy of globalization.
The following is a documentary(it has english subtitles whenever spanish is spoken, it has spoken english too) done by irish film-makers who documented the attempted coup against Chavez, a coup backed by the CIA. Viva Chavez!
