Carrying on his trademark trend of counseling less and less worthy "victims" of wrongdoing, Jesse Jackson has decided to lend a helping hand to Hugo Chavez, the Communist dictator of Venezuela, who was "victimized" by a TV minister calling for his assassination last week. Jackson noted that U.S. authorities should take action, and the U.S. govenrment should choose "diplomacy over any threats of sabatoge or isolation or assassination."

Maybe when the "U.S. authorities" are done "taking action" against Pat Robertson for daring to say that we should assassinate a Communist dicator (of all people), the same authorities can begin taking action against other agitators of violence, such as Al Sharpton or the Black Uhuru movement. I'm sure that the good Reverend will be right there to condemn their calls for violence as well, even though he has never been there in the past.

Come to think of it, if Reagan had only just resorted to "diplomacy" with the Soviet Union, like FDR did in Yalta, maybe it wouldn't have ever collapsed. I'm sure the good Reverend would agree that we should avoid tragedies like that in the future.
