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.

Can't blame him for hating America. It is the sickest society on the planet...arrogant, selfish, mean, unkind, heartless. Ooops, and monumentally greedy.

Good riddance u pig.

You know how many of his political opponents have disappeared? You know how many political prisoners are locked away because they disagreed with his politics? You know how many newspapers and news stations he took over so that he could silence the opposing voice.

He has been arming the guerrillas (farc) lin colombia a known terrorist organization for years. These guerrillas who kidnap, bomb and terrorize innocent civilians.


Other than that he seemed like a good guy.

Good! Now throw him face down in a shallow grave and pour some gasoline on him, then light him up and break out the marshmallows!

Fighting back tears because he knows his gravy train is over. This former bus driver has ordered the U.S. diplomats out of the country for giving Chavez cancer. Should be interesting. Hope the people have a future and don't continue going the way of Cuba.
