Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has died ... this according to Venezuelan Vice President Nicolas Maduro. 

Maduro -- who was fighting back tears during the announcement -- said Chavez died today at 4:25 PM.

Chavez had been in Cuba for months, where he was receiving treatment for a mystery illness that turned out to be cancer.

Chavez hated America ... and blamed all of the world's problems on the United States.

To paraphrase Ben Affleck ... Hugo f**k yourself. 

He was 58.

The reason Americans have been brainwashed to hate Chavez is because he nationalized Venuzuela's oil industry. America's big oil didn't like that. Seems America loves Saudi Arabia where human rights don't exist at all because they share their oil with the corporate world. You truly are sheeple.

He died of cancer, no conspiracy. The guy was an ass. I spent a year in Venezuela, his people didn't love him as much as the general media would have you believe. I really wish some young people on here would read and see the world more before they repeat crap they here others say

I know this man was a 'monster' to a lot of ppl, including ppl that were/are 'his' own that he was supposed to protect and 'lead'. He did deserve to suffer I suppose. Even though he left his family an enormous fortune that he didn't work for,.I know it's painful to them, especially if his mother is still alive.

I'm from Argentina and although i wasn't agree about Chavez policy, i don't wish him death. It's a shame that you all laugh and enjoy his death.
Stop calling USA as AMERICA, cause we all are. Anyway, i've never looked your country as an enemy. I think we can all be peacefull.
