A too typical exchange from Friday night’s Nightline, appropriating Jesus as a socialist rebel:
A revolutionary has to be in revolt against something. What are you revolting against?
PRESIDENT HUGO CHAVEZ
I’ve been in revolt for years against ignominy, against injustice, against inequality, against immorality. Against the exploitation of human beings. One of the greatest rebels who I really admire, Christ. He was a rebel. He ended up being crucified. He was a great rebel. He rebelled against the established power that subjugated. That is what rebellion is, it’s rebellion out of love for human beings.
