A Different Take on the “Eeeeeeeeeeeeeevvviiiiillllllllllllllllll” Pinochet, RIP

A Different Take on the “Eeeeeeeeeeeeeevvviiiiillllllllllllllllll” Pinochet, RIP

It is a given in the MSM world of the NYT, that the late (former Chilean dictator) Augusto Pinochet was an evil right-wing dictator – under whose watch some 3,000 Chileans (probably, mostly Commies) disappeared.  

Hmmmmm.  I wonder if a Lexis-Nexis search would show as much concern over the MILLIONS of Cambodians killed under the Communist rule of Khmer Rouge Madman Pol Pot as it has over the 3,000 ostensibly killed by Pinochet?

At any rate, in my book, a guy who saves his country from Communism and then puts it on track to have a demand-based, capitalist, free-market economy, cannot be ALL bad.

Ilana Mercer, on her blog, posts an excellent Pinochet obituary piece penned by George Reisman that I heartily recommend.

Long live those with the cojones to thwart communist takeovers of their country!  

Pinochet, I tip my glass to you!
