Happy Thanksgiving! (From Fidel and Che)

Pages: 1 2

Cuba’s agents for this Manhattan Thanksgiving bomb plot were members of the Cuban mission to the United Nations, and were working in concert with members of the Fair Play For Cuba Committee, an outfit that became much better known a year later this very week.

Had those detonators gone off the day after Thanksgiving in 1962, 9/11 might be remembered as the second deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

Today, many Americans are outraged over the leftist supporters of a mosque built at Ground Zero, but imagine a party held at the site in honor of Osama bin Laden himself. This is not unlike the insult of the American Left’s worship of Castro when he visited New York City in 1996. “The Toast of Manhattan” crowed Time magazine. “The Hottest Ticket in Manhattan” also read a Newsweek story that week. Both articles were referring to the social swirl that engulfed Castro by the media luminaries who barely escaped incineration at his hand.

First on the dictator’s itinerary, a luncheon at the Council on Foreign Relations. After holding court there for a rapt David Rockefeller, along with Robert McNamara, Dwayne Andreas, and Random House’s Harold Evans, Castro flashed over to Mort Zuckerman’s Fifth Avenue pad, where a throng of Beltway glitterati, including Mike Wallace, Peter Jennings, Tina Brown, Bernard Shaw, and Barbara Walters, all jostled for a photo op, and stood in line for Castro’s autograph. Diane Sawyer was so overcome in the mass-murderer’s presence that she rushed up, broke into a toothy smile, wrapped her arms around Castro, and smooched him warmly on the cheek.

“God Bless you, Fidel,” boomed Pastor Calvin Butts of Harlem’s Abyssinian Baptist Church while introducing Castro on another New York visit four years later. The People’s Weekly World described Castro’s visit as such: “The audience which included New York Democratic representatives Charles Rangel enthusiastically greeted the Communist leader with a ten minute standing ovation. Chants of ‘FIDEL!-FIDEL!  VIVA-FIDEL!’ resounded from the rafters.”

Then with Congressperson Maxine Waters looking on in rapture, a beaming Charlie Rangel waddled up to the podium beside the terrorist (and racist) Castro and engulfed him in a mighty bear hug. Castro had to catch his breath, but he smiled and returned the rotund senator’s passionate abrazo.

    Now the US has to be worrying about a nuclear armed Venezuela with an equally crazy communist backed by an equally crazy Islamist in Iran. Does it any worse? It does. We no have Islamists in our back yard ready to take control once the devastation of nuclear attack is cleared.

    Strange that this never became popular knowledge. I guess it was too much of a threat to the government which might have been forced to do something about the dirty little communists in Cuba.

    It will be great if the U$ finally burns.

      That would be the same U.S. that created the devices you're now using and which fights and dies to protect your slimy likes to freely express themselves. Here's hoping you get to witness your family's demise the same way you wish for us.

        "..and which fights fo liberate you from your oil supplies" haha

        While being an american and certainly now wanting this country to burn, i suggest we be honest with ourselves and admit that very few people in the larger world use anything made in the US now-a-days. That's because due to the high costs of labor (and since we want to maintain a reasonably high standard of living we can't pay the workers any less than we do) anything manufactured in the US will be overpriced compared to even the exact the same thing manufactured somewhere, say, in Bangladesh.
        We manage to maintain what little manufacturing we have by heavy subsidies from the govt, and the (completely un-free-market btw) import barriers.

        Just a pointer.

          "While being an american and certainly NOT wanting this country to burn"

          what a typo !!! : )

    • Chiggles

      Rest assured, your pathetic little country, whichever it may be, will burn along with it.

      It would be even better if you and the rest of your feckless brood were sent to Gitmo or back to Iran, devil-worshipping parasite.

      You can only imagine what thousands of U$ warheads will do to the rest of the world.

    Thank you, Humberto, for another winner! The useful idiot left in this country has a long history of embracing our enemies, and they continue to do so as if through a mass hypnotic spell, even after the false idols they worship have been exposed as our bitter antagonists. Little do they know that Fidel holds them in contempt for their stupidity. The sad reality is that the same people who greeted Castro with such deference then would do so even today, and might gladly lay the TNT wire for him at the NY stores on Black Friday after kissing his cancerous ass.

      John Wayne said it best, probably about the wacko left….."Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid"

    Humberto , the truth doesn't phase the Che T-Shirt wearers or the likes of Benito , Glover , Penn , Belafone or the "Clueless in Hollwood" useful idiots.

    Charlie Rangel is not a senator.

    Communist Cuba is a problem today still because although President Kennedy endorsed the Bay of Pigs invasion to Cuba in April 1961. At the very last moment, just before the troops were to land at the Bay of Pigs, President Kennedy canceled the support of the American troops at the insistence of his brother Robert F. Kennedy, then Attorney General of the U.S.A. Also, President Kennedy's real solution to the Cuban missile crisis was achieved by promising the Soviets that he would keep America's hands off Castro and Communist Cuba forever.

    Sorry, dear Humberto Fontova, but the quotation of "Tri-continental message", the last and one of the most terrible writings of the "Guerrillero heroico", is wrong. This is the real one (in Spanish):
    "Hay que llevar la guerra hasta donde el enemigo la lleve: a su casa, a sus lugares de diversion. Hay que impedirle tener un minuto de tranquilidad, un minuto de sosiego fuera de sus cuarteles, y aun dentro de los mismos: atacarlo donde quiera que se encuentre; hacerle sentir una fiera acosada por cada lugar que transite. Entonces su moral ira decayendo. Se hara mas bestial todavia, pero se notaran los signos del decaimiento que asoma."
    It's enough to consider that Che Guevara was one of the forerunners or theorists of terrorism of the second half of the XXth and the beginnings of the XXIst centuries. But it is not necessary to add to his words apocryphal ideas.
