10. Do you ever actually respond to facts with anything

other than a cut and paste from your favorite Chavista de jour? The fact that Chavez took it upon himself to try to turn this word into a perjorative is irrelevant. One of his more ardent admirers in the Academic world, Roberto J. Silva took Chavez to task (literarily) for his use of the term. Silva, writing in the Chavista publication Aporrea states:

"ASI, QUE, NOSOTROS LOS VENEZOLANOS REVOLUCIONARIOS BOLIVARIANOS NO DEBEMOS CONTINUAR LLAMANDO A ESAS ACCIONES VIOLENTAS PRO-IMPERIALISTAS, CON LA PALABRA GUARIMBA, SINO CON LA PALABRA “PITIYANQUIADA” [caps in original] (Real Academia Española, Wikipedia: pitiyanqui / Del .fr.petit y yanqui / 1.m. despect .Ven. Imitador del estadounidense) Roberto J. Silva | Aporrea Viernes, 29/06/2007 09:18 AM

[For the non-Spanish speakers, Silva opines the need for a new word to describe the anti-governmental protestors , i.e 'PITIYANQUIADA,' literally "done in the US-imitating way".]
