Death of a Venezuelan Storm Trooperette

Pages: 1 2

History has shown that female fanatics on the left can be every bit as bloodthirsty and nihilistic as their male counterparts.

Elena Ceausescu was keen on political murder and repression. She helped to steal from the Romanian people in order to feed her megalomaniacal husband’s edifice complex. During China’s grotesquely brutal Cultural Revolution, Mao Zedong’s homicidal wife Jiang Qing did her bit to ideologically purify the People’s Republic. She aspired to obliterate all art and literature that deviated from official policy.

Stateside, the relentless anti-American zealotry of Lynne Stewart, Bernardine Dohrn, Angela Davis, and the alleged ladies of Code Pink is well-known among those who study politics.

Not surprisingly, socialist Venezuela has more than a few of its own homegrown Madame Defarges cheering on state-sanctioned terrorism.

Until a heart attack silenced the middle-aged Lina Ron on March 5, she served Hugo Chavez as a chavista storm trooper in the oil-rich Bolivarian Republic. Upon her death the leftist caudillo hailed his favorite paramilitary leader as a “true soldier of the people” and tweeted that she was “A Complete Revolutionary. Let’s follow her example!”

And, dressed in a red, appropriately ACORN-like tee shirt, what an example she set.

Ron’s reaction to the 9/11 terrorist attacks differed only slightly from that of self-described “communist” Van Jones whose Maoist group held a vigil on Sept. 12, 2001, “mourning the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world.” She burned an American flag at a rally in Caracas and cheered on al-Qaeda, saying the attacks gave “Americans a taste of their own medicine.”

Comandante Lina, as some supporters called her, periodically vowed to drown her nation in blood. She summed up her philosophy as “With Chavez, everything, without Chavez, bullets.”

“There were battles between the forces of the revolution and the counterrevolution, and there will continue to be,” she said, adding that violence would grow unless Venezuela undertook a program of massive redistribution of wealth. Ron denounced her country’s elite as selfish: “So we are saying to them, if that’s the way things are, I am preparing for war.”

Ron founded a small political party, the Venezuelan Popular Union, which later merged with Chavez’s United Socialist Party. Remarkably honest in her self-assessment, she called herself the “ugly part” of the revolutionary process because she got “the disagreeable part confronting” Chavez’s adversaries.

      New? They've been communists since the 1930s.

    • Ron Brydges

      If Democrats are the new Communists then perhaps the Republicans are the new Nazi's. This line is so ignorant.

      Code Pink ring any bells? Nancy Pelosi? Other than Elisabeth Hasselbeck, how about the rest of the cast of The View – or their target audience for that matter.
      In Canada there is the Ontario Nurses Union.

    Ms. Ron wasn't "nihilistic." I can think of a better word: "Communist." In any event, I regard revolutionary women as every bit as lethal as the men. You don't have to visit a dominatrix website to realize this. Unpleasant and overrated as Nelson Mandela is, for instance, he's benign compared to his horrible ex-wife, Winnie.

    Women. Can't live with 'em. Can't ignore them.

      I didn't think of Winnie Mandela when I was writing this. Damn! You make an excellent point.

    Well, that's the first time a heart attack is good news, although it is hard to believe that this harpy had a heart at all. She is getting her reward now, tough luck!

    I wonder why are Hugo's Red Guards not turning on Hugo for not redistrubting the wealth like he promised to his people…Hugo like Karl Marx is a wealthy spoiled brat with a silver spoon in his mouth.
