Well it appears that one of Hollywood’s leading apologist and supporter of progressive dictatorial rule – Oliver Stone – has produced a new documentary staring everyones favorite South American potentate Hugo Chavez.
The documentary is titled “South of the Border” and in Stone’s words, “is meant to illustrate the sweeping changes in South America in recent years as a direct counterpoint to what he sees as Chavez’s depiction as a dictator by U.S. and European media.”
All I can say to Mr. Stone is that I am sure that Leni Riefenstahl would be proud. Not since Frau Riefenstahl’s 1935 release of Triumph des Willens has the world had the pleasure of watching such a stirring movie highlighting the accomplishments of one of the greatest sociopaths to walk the earth.
Kudos to you Mr. Stone, and enjoy the inevitable Oscar for best documentary that will be awarded to you by your fellow travelers in Hollyweird.
The Mandarin, whose real name is 吏恆, joined the order in 1309, and introduced the Gormogons into England during the 18th Century.
The Mandarin enjoys spending time with his pet manticore, Βάρἰκος, or Barry (who can be found in the Bestiary). When not in the Castle…well, frankly, nobody is quite sure where he goes.
The Mandarin popularized the fine art of “gut booting,” by which he delivers a powerful kick to the stomach of anyone that annoys him. Although nearly universal today, the act of gut booting or threatening someone or something with a gut boot is solely due to him.
