AFA online calls for boycott of Citgo in response to Venezuela's dictator's vows to bring down U.S. government

American Family Association out of Tupelo, MS, is calling for a boycott of Citgo gas stations, in response to radical left anti-war activist, Cindy Sheehan's appearance on Chavez's TV station.
Chavez, president of Venezuela, told a TV audience: "Enough of imperialist aggression; we must tell the world: down with the U.S. empire. We have to bury imperialism this century."

The guest on his television program beamed across Venezuela was Cindy Sheehan, the anti-war activist. Chavez recently had as his guest Harry Belafonte, who called President Bush "the greatest terrorist in the world."

Chavez is pushing a socialist/communist revolution and has a close alliance with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Part of the email, AFA asked recipients to sign and send a letter to President Chavez himself, saying "Just a note to let you know that I will not be shopping at Citgo. I don't want my money going to someone who has vowed to bring down my government."

I'm glad to see AFA highlighting the threat from down South. For those of you who are a Federal Civilian, Postal or Military Employee, I have to repeat the AFA request to consider AFA (#2058) for your annual CFC participation.
