Intro to Humberto Fontova's Article: "For the Love of Fidel"
"Fidel Castro is a genius! We spoke about everything. We agree on everything. He is a pure humanist like President Clinton. Cuba is a pure paradise!" (Jack Nicholson, actor, leftist, outspoken atheist)
Fidel, the Murderer of Hundreds of Thousands Has Lived in Splendor for Over Sixty-Years, While Most of Cuba's People Have Suffered Abject Poverty and Live in Fear to Speak Castro's Name in Other Than Adoring Terms, ala Mao and Stalin How many Hollywood movies have we seen that the star has a picture of his hero, either Mao, Lenin, Castro, or Che Guevara somewhere in his dwelling?
And then, how many films have we seen that the evil villain wears a Cross or has one on his wall or a picture of Christ hangs neatly in the background, to let us know that anyone who trusts in Christ is sick, depraved, and truly evil?
Dan Rather called Castro "Cuba's own Elvis." Two of Hollywood's favorites, Bradley Pitt and his bossmate, Angelina Jolie, have Che tattoos. Mao, the cold-hearted murderer of 60-80 million people, is consistently mentioned in an adorning manner by Hollywood.
Another of Hollywood's favorites, the propagandist Michael Moore, made a film-"Sicko"-painting a beautiful picture of Cuba's horrible socialized medical system. The truth is, however, the system is a classically socialist dual system: one for the top leaders of the totalitarian regime, the other for the common citizenry, ala the Soviet Union and Mao's Communist China. Guess which one Moore conveniently forgot to show in his propaganda film.
A host of Hollywood apes, from Alan Alda, Johnny Depp, Chevy Chase, Madonna (born: Louise Ciccone), Mike Farrell, Jack Nicholson, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Francis Ford Coppola, Kevin Costner, Steven Spielberg, Woody Harrelson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sean Penn, to Robert Redford (to name only a few) have made homages to Cuba to bow before one of their many gods.
Three springs ago the entire 42-member Congressional Black Caucus made a pilgrimage to Cuba to bow before Castro, his thugs, and Cuba's socialized society. They returned to the states gushing at how "lovely the chat" was they had with him and full of stories of what wonders he had done for Cuba. Meanwhile, under darkened skies every year hundreds of Cubans pack themselves into boats in an attempt to sneak away from Castro's Cuban paradise-in search of something Hollywood and the American Left never mention: freedom.
Homemade Shoes, Typical of Those Worn by Many Cubans in the Cuban Paradise
Many people who call themselves environmentalists adore Castro's Cuba, though it's one of the nastiest nations in the Western Hemisphere-and that takes some doing to top that list.
Typical Housing for the Average person in Havana Cuba, the Star City of Cuba
This is our land, the land founded by seriously faithful people, but which is now run by interlopers who hate Christ and the people who founded this nation-who-by bribery, lies, deceit, propaganda, phony issues, illegal immigration, and crooked elections intend on overthrowing the nation as we have known it.
They are well on their way to succeeding. The lands of Castro and Mao are examples of what you can expect if they succeed. Enjoy!
The American people - the few left who care about freedom - must come to understand that Socialism means enslavement to the state. Big Government means sacrificing your rights, beliefs, and freedoms for the good of the state. Or, as the dedicated Saul Alinskyite Hillary Clinton has said: "It takes a Village." What she does not say, but clearly implies, is that in that Village you must do as the state orders you for the sake of the Village-which is the state. You and your freedoms-as an individual-are tossed to heartless, dark, and unknown bureaucrats who make rule after rule, law after law, to punish you, to control you, to make you into the Village disciple: an idiot who says yes to every new law they can imagine implementing. (Notice of how much power the US Congress has ceded to federal bureaucracies; it is scary.)
Nothing can live up to the promises of the state-thus, its proponents must propagandize the citizenry into believing that state programs fail because of the people (and especially because of those who oppose statist programs), just as Castro (who learned from Mao and Stalin) has done. This too the Left has done well in America. Who cannot love and adore the good ole US Government?
Great article by Humberto Fontova. Informative-with urgent information. Born in Cuba in 1954, Fontova's family had to flee to the US to keep from being executed. He understands the urgency of stopping the US's leap to the left. He communicates it well, too.
Yours for the truth and our freedom: Arletta Modellpog
For the Love of Fidel
Sean Penn, Hugo Chavez’s Honored Guest
Sean Penn was Hugo Chavez' guest of honor (again) last week, serving as keynote speaker at graduation ceremonies for Venezuela's Salvador Allende Medical School. "Allow me to impart a little anecdote," beamed the two-time Oscar winner to the enchanted crowd. "I had the privilege (italics mine) to introduce my children to comandante Fidel Castro and as he posed for a photo between them I told him: "President, (italics mine) I'll now be denounced in the U.S. for educating my children as socialist revolutionaries.
So Castro responded: "That's among the best things that could happen to them."
Besides his fame as wife beater with baseball bats, Sean Penn also claims fame as an advocate against the death penalty. His Oscar-winning role in Dead Man Walking where he played a convicted rapist and murderer who perished by lethal-injection in Louisiana seems to have made a deep impression upon Penn.
Unlike Louisiana's penal system, however, the role model for Penn's kids used firing squads, forced labor and prison beatings to murder his thousands of defenseless victims. And their "convictions," were curtly explained by his chief hangman Che Guevara: "Judicial evidence is an archaic bourgeois detail. We execute from revolutionary conviction."
Castro himself confirmed: "Legal proof is impossible to obtain against war criminals. So we sentence them based on moral conviction."
Among these "war criminals were farm-kids younger than Penn's children. Carlos Machado was 15 years old in 1963 when a volley from Castro's firing squad shattered his body. His twin brother and father crumpled beside Carlos from the same volley and tumbled into the same mass grave. All had resisted Castro and Che's theft of their humble family farm, all refused blindfolds and all died sneering at their Communist murderers, as did thousands of their valiant countrymen.
This "moral conviction" saw the role model for Sean Penn's children jail more political prisoners as a percentage of population than Stalin and murder more people (out of a population of 6.5 million) in his first three years in power than Hitler murdered (out of a population of 65 million) in his first six.
Enlightened opinion, including most "liberal," "human-rights" and "peace" groups worldwide, either yawned or actually applauded the bloodbath. Harvard Law School merits special attention regarding the latter.
By April 1959, almost a thousand Cubans had been "judged" (see above) and murdered by Castro and Che's firing squads. Cuba's prisons were packed to suffocation with ten times the number of political prisoners as during "the Tyrant" Batista's reign. Among Castro and Che Guevara's prisoners were hundreds of women, a Stalinist horror utterly unknown in our hemisphere till introduced by the "leader" swooned over by Barbara Walters, Andrea Mitchell and Diane Sawyer.
Furthermore, the death penalty was being applied retroactively (none had existed under the unspeakable Batista regime.) Habeas Corpus had been abolished. Cuban defense lawyers attempting to defend the accused were being jailed themselves.
That's when Fidel Castro received a fawning invitation from Harvard Law School asking the honor of his addressing them. Seems that both the student body and faculty were smitten with the Cuban Revolution's shining judicial record. Castro accepted on the spot, making Harvard the last gig on his 1959 U.S. tour.
"Castro Visit Triumphant!" headlined Harvard's Law School Forum for April 30, 1959. "The audience got what it wanted: the chance of seeing the Cuban hero (italics mine) in person!"
"VIVA FIDEL!" roared these fervent foes of capital punishment and double jeopardy upon first glimpsing their hero. Though the adoring crowd was too enormous to fit in any campus arena they remained chipper, "even if we didn't see Castro at as close a range as might have been desired!" a fervent foe of capital punishment was quoted in the Harvard Forum.
Interestingly, Fidel Castro had actually applied to Harvard Law School in 1948. This was brought to light by Harvard's Arts and Sciences Dean, Mc George Bundy, (later to serve as JFK's National Security Advisor.) "Caught up in the exuberance of the event," continues the Harvard Law Forum, "Harvard Dean, Mc George Bundy, declared that Harvard was ready to make amends for its mistake in 1948.'I've decided to admit him!' declared Dean Bundy."
