Five decades ago, Fidel Castro assured the world, he wasn't a communist, much like Hugo Chavez is currently doing, while systematically getting rid of his opposition and taking over Venezuela's free market. Most recently he has threatened to close down Globovision. Communists though armed to the teeth are afraid of ideas and will stop at nothing to stop free thinking. As tragic as this may sound, I think Venezuela has reached the point of now return.
Venezuelans should have seen this coming, the moment Chavez and Castro became chummy, but they refuse to see the obvious and I understand that there are still people that believe in him.
In this video Castro assures us in English that he is not a communist.
