For over 10 minutes the president of Argentina boasted about the K Media Law, criticized what’s left of the free Argentine press and complimented Chavez on his newly won election. “The problem of the media is widespread” she said “in the region and the rest of the world”. She said that the elections in Venezuela felt like an “international” election and made reference to how Chavez won in spite of opposing press. To that, several Chavez militants present in the room chanted in support.
She also mentioned similarities between herself and Obama regarding how they both suffer unfair negative press. Ms. Kirchner mentioned the unfair criticism to Obama of how the unemployment rate isn’t accurate, how social welfare plans are used to buy votes and political support and how Obamacare is branded as socialist. “They criticize when unemployment is high and call it conspiracy when its doing better”, said Cristina Kirchner.
Regarding the K Media Law, which in December 7th will finally get rid of whats left of the free press in Argentina with the liquidation of Clarin Group, the Argentine president again drew comparisons. “Fox news monopolizes the news like it happens here (in Argentina)”. She also insinuated that freedom of press was even more restricted in USA than in Argentina when she said “In USA, who owns a newspaper cannot own a TV channel, did you know that?”
Regarding the latest suspiciously positive unemployment numbers, Ms. Kirchner complimented the New York Times for its pro Obama stance. “The New York Times today talks about the conspiracy world” …“living and getting worked up means resigning to objective reality, does that ring a bell?” …“This is what I admire of that democracy (USA)” said the Argentine president. Comparing Fox to the Argentine Clarin Group, Cristina said “Fox news and the right wing websites saw a conspiracy”…. “Do tell me if this news article couldn’t be of Argentina as well?”
Maybe that last quote is the scariest part, because those last words of hers are actually true.
I really hope Americans see what’s happening. Voting for Obama is voting for the US equivalent of Cristina Kirchner in Argentina and that’s voting for more government oppression and less freedom.
