[Marxism] Pat Robertson calls for the assassination of Hugo Chavez

Godena writes about Pat Robertson, "These and other personalities on the
Christian Right 
are promoted by CNN and the New York chiefly for their value to the
defense of Israel."

Does anyone detect a whiff of anti-semitism in these parts? Wasn't
"Times," as in New York Times, official organ of the elders of Zion to
some, the missing word after New York in that sentence?

BTW, for the latest on the yellow peril, combined with a completely
muddleheaded and profoundly *ignorant* commentary on socalled
"intellectual property rights," check out Godena's blog, where he
succeeds in a) completely swallowing, hook, line and sinker, the lies of
the bourgeois imperialist monopolies b) making a complete hash of
distinctions between copyrights and trademarks, bourgeois patents and
feudal patens, all tacked together with toxic racism like "China's
civilization is in fact inseparable from its state" and "So China
steals, or copies.... the country still has a huge problem sustaining a
stream of innovations."

Ignorance, arrogance and stupidity in a single, tidy package. Admirable
economy.

On the substance of the point that Mr. Godena decided to attack me on,
his claim that Robertson was a nobody who should and would be ignored,
I'll adduce just one piece of evidence: the top of the state department
briefing today was devoted to denying that Robertson was speaking for
the administration.
