Former Dictator Denies Calling For Return Of Dictatorship

Former genocidal dictator and quite possibly senile citizen Jorge Rafael Videla is distraught and very much offended after reading a recent interview he gave to Spanish magazine Cambio 16 in which he calls for the armed forces to rise up again if the President attempts to seek a third term in office.

Turns out we got it all wrong, guys!

According to Infobae:

“Dictator Jorge Rafael Videla denied today urging young people to ‘arm themselves’ against the National Government… Videla said it was his duty to ‘publicly and categorically deny’ such statements published by Cambio 16. Videla specifically denied urging young military officials to ‘rise up in arms’ against the constitutional Government’.”

Videla made these statements in court, since he is currently in prison for life and is on trial for his involvement in the Operation Condor, a systematic plan between the CIA and several military governments in Latin America to stop the spread of Communism in the 70s.

Last week, Spanish magazine Cambio 16 published an interview in which the former de facto president allegedly called for the military to oust the Kirchnerite government if Cristina decided to run for a third term, violating the Constitutional limit of two presidential terms.

So. Who do we believe? The blood-thirsty dictator with the creepy mustache? Or the Spanish journalist who wrote the piece?

It’s up to you, but I would distrust the dictator. He looks like he’s up to no good.
