A better name for this video might be Nativity Scene Occupies #Occupy. And as this is a left-wing movement, you better believe there were offended occupiers, (and the one obligatory whacked out of his mind occupier). But surprisingly, not all of them were hostile and/or crazy.

I love how the dude with the bandana over his face, says “the law is my Lord.” Not something you hear everyday from an anarchistic occupier.

Another Nativity Scene causing controversy in Venezuela:
A Nativity scene in Caracas showing the socialist president standing before the traditional crib-in-a-manger has stirred up a pre-Christmas controversy in the politically polarized country.
“It has nothing to do with the real Nativity, with religion. I don’t like it,” said passerby Arnaldo Amundaray, tutting as he took a close look at the model.
For Chavez supporters and the Nativity’s creators, it is a legitimate and innocent tribute to their man.
“The intention is to show off all the revolution’s achievements because the media silence the good things President Chavez has done,” said Maria Alejandra Mijares, a Women’s Ministry employee who helped make the Nativity.
The lovingly constructed model, which stands in a concourse of residential and business towers in central Caracas, has the traditional Christian scene at its heart. But it also politicizes the Nativity by paying tribute to some of Chavez’s most popular policies during his 13-year rule.
Weasel Zippers quips: “White House officials last seen furiously taking down notes for next year.”
Interesting depiction of Chavez in heaven, here.
