Chavez did utter those words, more tongue in cheek than at all a serious
self applied label. He had an association and friendship with Alan Woods,
the British Trotskyist as well as friends who were or had been Trotskyists
and who supported his regime. If I'm not mistaken when he said this he did
so in response to a Trotskyist/sectarian attack on him, implying he was the
only Trotskyist around, not the other guy making the criticism.

Parenthetically "Trotskyist" has become a negative point of reference from
the ruling MAS in Bolivia and used to differentiate supporters of the MAS
(not Trotskyist) from all left opponents of the gov't ("The Trotskyists").
