“[Hugo Chavez] was not only my friend, he was my brother.
…It’s difficult for a leader like him to exist in these times. His vision for humanity and the world can only be compared to that of leaders like Nelson Mandela. He was a great man and I cried when he died.”
“I join with millions… of freedom-loving people around the world, in hope for a rewarding future for the democratic and social development charter of the Bolivarian Revolution.
We all embraced Hugo Chavez as a social champion of democracy, material development, and spiritual well-being.”
“I don’t own a gun and definitely not only gun control, we should abolish guns, the personal guns. That’s how far I’m willing to go.
…We have to find some sort of way in which we live together, some sort of way in which we move on, for the human species to move on without guns.”
“I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms. The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts and from uprisings by Native Americans.”
A revolt from people who were stolen from their land or revolt from people whose land was stolen from, that’s what the genesis of the Second Amendment is.”
