Shoulda stuck to what you were good at, Mario…And he shoulda stayed on the left, too. Then maybe things like this wouldn’t be happening to him now:
Fancy him talking about “sophistication” when the candidate who invited him is a disgusting Pinochet apologist. Yeah, fascism is so “sophisticated”. That’s why this pompous twat routinely shills for it in Venezuela; I don’t suppose he’s much different when it comes to Chile. (It bears repeating that Vargas Loser has hated democracy in Latin America ever since he lost a presidential election so badly in Peru. Voters aren’t totally stupid, it seems.)Of course, the neo-cons all love him. They’re quite alone in that; no one else cares for sold-out turncoats. Least of all the Latin Americans (and particularly, the indigenous) whom he betrayed.He deserves all the booing he gets, and then some.
The heckling of writer Mario Vargas Llosa and the abrupt appearance of the sister of a Mapuche Indian killed by Chilean police marred the opening of the Museo de la Memoria, intended to honor victims of the late Augusto Pinochet’s 1973-1990 dictatorship.Presiding over Monday’s ceremony was Chilean head of state Michelle Bachelet, who was imprisoned and tortured during the military regime.She was accompanied by the other three presidents who have ruled Chile since the return of democracy – Patricio Aylwin, Eduardo Frei and Ricardo Lagos – along with numerous ministers and lawmakers.Also present was Peruvian-born novelist Vargas Llosa, who has been in Santiago since last week as a guest of right-wing presidential candidate Sebastian Piñera, who has won the endorsement of the acclaimed writer.Piñera will challenge Eduardo Frei next Sunday in a runoff.“Get out, get out!” those seated near Vargas Llosa began to shout as he talked to reporters before the event began.“In an electoral campaign the atmosphere always gets a little tense, but I have the impression that this is a small group and that most people are showing all the sophistication they should in such cases,” Vargas Llosa said when asked about the heckling.
