Oliver Stone, Sean Penn hail ‘hero’ Chavez

• Prison Planet

US filmmaker and long-time Hugo Chavez supporter Oliver Stone hailed the late Venezuelan leader as a “great hero” on Tuesday, saying he will “live forever in history.”

Actor and activist Sean Penn, another Hollywood friend to Chavez, also paid tribute saying the world’s poor had lost a “champion” and America had also lost “a friend it never knew it had.”

“JFK” and “Natural Born Killers” director Stone said: “I mourn a great hero to the majority of his people and those who struggle throughout the world for a place.

“Hated by the entrenched classes, Hugo Chavez will live forever in history,” he added in a statement released by his publicist, adding: “My friend, rest finally in a peace long earned.”

 The ONLY reason Chavez was hated by the media is he kept the Bankers and their corporations out. Dictators versus Democracies. When democracies are established the bankers can then go into these countries rape the land, tax the people into inescapable debt and legally kill them with pollution and "approved" medical procedures, eventually leading the country into pure socialism or outright communisim. You can do that with a democracy but not with a Dictator. Chavez kept the bankers and their corporations out, that's the ONLY reason the media bad-mouthed him. The Bankers own the media. Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Syria, the dictators go because the bankers want their country. All those countries were doing quite well considering their environment against the Bankers. Only in the name of democracy can the bankers take over. A strong Dictator will stop them. He knows who the real enemy is. Democracy is a con nowadays used in name only to put people in slavery or just kill them off. And of course to put their once beautiful country now ravaged by war hopelessly in debt to the bankers.
