Today a read a piece published in the financial times (http://news.ft.com/cms/s/e388bce2-6347-11d9-bec2-00000e2511c8.html) and commented by A.M. Mora y Leon from the American Thinker (http://www.americanthinker.com/comments.php?comments_id=1407). about Rafael AlemÃ¡n, head of the commission in the Cojedes province wearing a shirt with Che Guevara on it. Well during my visit to Venezuela the governor of Anzoategui state (of course a Chavez lackie) was on the television station for the east region of Venezuela. Every time I saw him on television (a total of 5 times in a one week period) he also had a shirt with Che on it.
Moreover all public employees from what I saw, in Chavez controlled areas (now almost all of Venezuela), wear red shirts, some say pro-Chavez slogans (see picture below). Not only this but everyone I saw on Channel 8 (Venezolana de television) the government TV station wore red as well. Since red is not only Chavismos favorite color but also the favorite color of most communist and dictatorships it makes you wonder where Chavez is heading (oh and don't forget the posters that litter Venezuela now showing the "peoples man").
