Cesar Chavez Confidante Tries to Cover Up Fidel’s Crimes

Pages: 1 2

Brothers to The Rescue risked their lives almost daily, flying over the straits, alerting and guiding the Coast Guard to any balseros, and saving thousands of these desperate people from joining that terrible tally. (Prior to Castro’s Revolution, by the way, Cuba took in more immigrants per-capita than the U.S., including the Ellis Island years. People used to be as desperate to enter capitalist Cuba as they are now to escape communist Cuba. Did your professor, the MSM and Hollywood neglect to mention this?)

By February of 1996, Brothers to The Rescue had flown 1,800 of these humanitarian missions and helped rescue 4,200 men, women and children. That month Dolores Huerta’s current cause célèbre’ passed to Castro the flight plan for one of the Brothers’ humanitarian flights over the Cemetery Without Crosses.

With this info in hand, Castro’s Top Guns jumped into their MIGs, took off and valiantly blasted apart (in international air space) the lumbering and utterly defenseless Cessnas. Four members of the humanitarian flights were thus murdered in cold blood.

Three of these men were US citizens, the other a legal U.S. resident. Among the murdered was Armando Alejandre Jr., who came to the U.S. at age ten in 1960. His first order of business upon reaching 18 was fulfilling his dream of becoming a U.S. citizen. His next was joining the United States Marine Corps and volunteering for combat in Vietnam. He returned with several decorations. Armando was certainly no “flower-child” while serving in Vietnam. But as a member of Brothers to the Rescue, he often dropped flowers over the sea in memory of the thousands of desperate freedom-seekers he’d been unable to rescue in time.

Most who knew him and are today free to tell the truth without fear of his firing squads and torture-chambers will attest that a man with a weapon or with both hands and free to fight has always paralyzed Castro with fright. The notion of Fidel or Raul Castro facing a U.S. Marine in combat mode is simply laughable, in a pathetic sort of way. “Where’s Fidel?” asked his former “guerrilla”  comrade Huber Matos in 1958 while watching a distant strafing run by a Batista plane and thinking he was still conferring with Fidel.

But Castro had scurried deep into his “headquarters” cave upon first sighting the plane as a distant speck. (Don’t expect to learn of this incident from the same leftists who snicker at Gen. Douglas MacArthur as “Dugout Doug.”)

Forty years later Castro waited for Armando Alejandre and his Brothers to be flying utterly unarmed and carrying flowers. Then he murdered them in cold blood: MIGs against Cessnas, Soviet cannon and rockets against flowers carried by a decorated U.S. Navy vet.

Now Cesar Chavez’ soul-sister and one-time closest professional partner wants the Castro brothers cleared of the crime, claiming those poor, Yankee-bullied, free-healthcare-providers were acting meekly in “self-defense.” Huerta champions Castro’s claim that the decorated U.S. Marine dropping flowers was the actual terrorist.

    Ok Humberto , Cesar Chavez died in '93 . The Ship is named after Cesar Chavez , NOT Dolores Huerta .
    So what is your objection to the ship being named after Cesar Chavez ?

    • Jay

      Because commie activists shouldn't have ships named after them. Sounds like a good enough reason to complain.

          They murdered and were convicted under our laws, you can always give it a try and live under Cuban authoritarian's system of law for a change , but since I wish harm to anybody I want you back in US as soon as possible

  • Mike from Brooklyn

    This story seems a bit discombobulated to me. If Delores Huerta is working to get these convicterd Castro supporting swine off, fine do a story about that and how she has become a "excuser" for the murderer Castro and his acolytes. If Mr. Fontova is opining that a Mexican American or Cuban American or any other Hispanic American is deserving of a ship named after him or her, as a non Hispanic American I am fine with that. I know that there are a great many Hispanic American patriots. But this is two separate articles I believe.

    Don't you think that a Medal of Honor winner like Peralta should have had priority? After all, he gave his life in duty to his country!

  • LindaRivera

    Murdered Brothers to The Rescue, beautiful HEROES, rest in peace.

  • Amused

    As I said Cesar Chavez passed away in 1993 , the "Cuban Terrorists " were busted in 1998, Huerta , for whatever her reasons , they were not connected in any way to Chavez , Humberto casts slanderous aspersions , makes baseless asssumptions against a dead man . Humberto has no proof nor facts that would support or allude to Chavez even taking a position that Huerta took . Me thinks , Humberto's got an ax to grind with organized labor , for that is ALL , Chavez dedicated his life for , many American folk singers lent their voices for the cause of the downtrodden farmworkers ….were they "communists " ? What Huerta did five years after Chavez died is irrelevant to his cause and the organization . Chavez was a good man and an AMERICAN , not a communist .

    • Dax LeBaron

      Cesar Chavez was a Communist with ties to our enemies. He no more deserves a ship named after him than Adolf Hitler does.

  • Amused

    As for naming a US Naval ship after Chavez , it can be argued that , only military heroes , Presidents , Sec.s of Defense etc. should be used . However i have no great problem with that argument nor in fact naming a ship after Chavez . But slandering and denigrating a great man , for the sake of an argument against naming a ship after him is petty and DISPICABLE.

  • JoseX

    Fontova is a notorious LIAR and right-wing smear merchant.

    He has no crediblity and is usually just ignored in most circles.

    • Jerry Kulyk

      What are His lies and whom is He smearing? JoseX, be specific and quit the name calling.

  • scum

    According to the Fascist Right, a hippie sticking a flower in a gun barrel is a terrorist…

    • Jerry Kulyk

      I would argue that the left is more fascist than the right. We didn't have TSA feeling up kids under Bush. We din't have NLRB telling private companies where they could relocate. Just a few examples of the lefts fascism. I am old enough to know that no one called hippies sticking a flower in a gun barrel a terrorist. You are aptly named/

  • Dax LeBaron

    Cesar Chavez was no great man. The mexicans he proported to help and still living in destitute conditions. Like all union leaders he was a thug. And no matter what names you call critics of Das Comrade chavez wont blind people to the truth about him

  • Viva Chavez

    Unhappy with shamelessly lying about Fidel Castro, and Che Guevara – the laughable right-wing propagandist & revisionist polemicist Humberto Fontova has now set his sights on Cesar Chavez.

    Fontova is a shrill clown who literally lies at about a rate of 5 times per paragraph. NOBODY and I mean NOBODY outside of a few right-wing blogs and websites even give this doofus the time of day! In any other country Fontova would have a bull horn and be wearing a sandwich board while warning of the coming apocalypse! The pasty white Fontova is just mad that his family lost their slave labor and the mansion that went with it. To top it off his war criminal daddy was held prisoner for a few weeks (cry me a river).

    Seeing that Fontova's only real skill is shooting deer and drinking beer, he decided to make a career writing ignorant anti-Castro/Che/Cuba propaganda for the illiterate Teabagger demographic. However, his LIES would make Goebbels blush.

  • Mark in Chi town

    Fontova is clearly a polemicist. His frequent use of profanity and childish insults in most of his articles also points him more towards sophistry than scholarship. His work is not taken seriously in the academic community because he purposely omits all information that fails to conform to his desired narrative. He works backwards by starting with his conclusion = and then inserts any cherry picked information that will help support this view. Readers should not be left with the impression from this article that he is a serious researcher, it would be an insult to all those that truly investigate for the truth.

    Plus, the fact that Fontova has written in support of terrorist Luis Posada Carriles (who blew up an airliner with children) and the right-wing dictator Augusto Pinochet (who killed 3,000 people) also speaks volumes.

    • Republicrat

      Men get your facts straight , the murdered folks in the plane was the Cuban fence team, if Carriles did it? he deserves to be punished with death , not sure coming from Castro's Regime , unless he himself confessed to the crime.
      Left- wing Dictator Castro has been in power (through his brother Raul) lately for twice as much of Pinochet 's years and has killed 100's in the last 52 year including those who have died at see looking from freedom somewhere else, no general elections in the same period, no internet for regular folks, the Press in 100% controlled by the commies.
      Viva Cuba libre!
