Chavez revoked the licenses to broadcast stations calling for the violent overthrow of the government. That's against the law in Venzuela, and guess what, it's against the law in the U. S. He is protecting the poor and working people of his country from corporate atrocities, dealt out by rich right-wingers who can't stand not having the poor people under their bootheels.
