Georgia Immigration Laws ‘Cruel’ Says Carlos Santana

Pages: 1 2

A more recent rocker-victim of Castroite repression told Mexico’s Proceso magazine that, “in Cuba freedom is nonexistent. The regime demands submission. It persecutes all hippies, homosexuals, poets and free thinkers. It employs total repression against them.”

This “roquero” divulged the truth only because he’d managed to escape the nation-prison whose co-founder and emblem Carlos Santana venerates. That escapees name is Canek Sanchez Guevara– Ernesto “Che” Guevara’s very grandson. The regime co-founded by his grandfather jailed and tortured Canek for the crime of trying to play some rock music unsanctioned by the Stalinist authorities. Carlos Santana might profit from a “jam session” with fellow guitarist Canek Guevara.

Last year during a benefit concert for the Dolores Huerta Foundation, which provides support for undocumented farm workers, Santana elaborated on his brainy worldview: “There could be peace in this world during our lifetime, you only need to change how you think. God created a world of love so we could all have a place.”

Yet his T-shirt icon helped bring the world closer to nuclear Armageddon than anyone in history, horrifying even his Soviet patrons. For instance, Santana’s idol once declared: “We reject any peaceful approach” and “Violence is inevitable. To establish Socialism rivers of blood must flow. The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims.”

And regarding Santana’s “world of love” we again find discrepancies with his T-shirt icon:

“Hatred is the central element of our struggle,” raved this icon of flower-children. “Hatred so violent that it propels a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him violent and cold- blooded killing machine…My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any surrendered enemy that falls in my hands.”

This last portion of Che Guevara’s reverie to peace and love comes—not from plagiarizing the Beatles or the Youngbloods—but straight from his very Motorcycle Diaries. This passage somehow went unmentioned during both the movie and the Oscar ceremony hailing these diaries.

If Laura Ingraham’s admonition to “Shut up and sing” needs a poster-boy this month, multi-Grammy winner Carlos Santana tossed in the biggest hat.

    This is a self-serving racist smear. I am so impressed that the author was able to search the John Birch section of Wikipedia. I am sure that double dipping his tea bag in tepid water gave him the courage to upend history. Think about what Santana said and comprehend it.

    • Kathleen

      Observing this man (and I use the term lightly), his appearance, and anti-American rhetoric I doubt he has enough brain cells left to "think about what Santana said…" let alone comprehend what he parroted per Obama's instructions.

      • Vickie`

        I saw Santana interviewed a few years ago and thought what an acid eaten brain this guy is going around trying to use for thinking. This is an airhead who has no concept nor is willing to entertain the concept of being overrun by welfare seekers.

    Fontova is a right-wing propagandist.

    Viva Che!

    • Maria Espinosa


      But the Miami ex mafia of old geezers who are upset that Che took their slave labor just love the guy !

    • Omar

      You're wrong. Humberto Fontova is telling the truth about Cuba in general. You are repeating left-wing propaganda.

      With friends like those,
      who needs enemies?

    In the middle ages Santana and other entertainers were appropriately classified as court jesters. No one seriously considers or cares about the opinion of a court jester.

    As it was in the middle ages, the court jester obeyed his master and immediately obeyed Obama's orders to "spread the world on amnesty." What neither realize is the more the court jesters chastise law-abiding Americans the more they make a fool of themselves.

  • labaroa

    Yes, Kathleen, if only all of us could live in the Middle Ages, like you and Fontova O so happily do.
    If Santana is a court jester, then you are a court carpet? Just guessin'…

    • Vickie`

      She is probably a court taxpayer who is tired of the freeloading mob overrunning us.

    After the 2506 comedy-debacle-tragedy-disaster, people like Fontova have doubled their efforts to fight the Castro dictatorship but without having to go to Cuba or to use guns of any sort. Didn't you know that Osama Bin Laden was killed with the hit of a mouse button? Well, that's what Fontovita and his kind do for a living, er, I mean, this is how they fight communism in their beloved Cuba. By simply not fighting it at all. In Cuba we call it tener flojera de patas. These guys have got a permanent condiiton it seems.

  • tanstaafl

    Kids, let Carlos Santana be an example to you all.
    This is what happens to all the folks who took too many drugs in the sixties.
    (Not saying I didn't, just saying I recognized that we all got conned by the communists.)

    Carlos can still play the guitar, though. Wish he'd stick to that.

    A patriot American sent me an E-Mail that is in printed form of Mexico's annotated immigration laws for immigrants and foreigners. It's remarkable to note, that while the Mexican authorities are condoning the flow of illegal immigrants into our nation, as they quietly exact their own harsh laws on anybody who crosses the border illegally. This is truly hypocritical when we are immersed in a countries distressed people, which have been rejected by the wealthy elite. The USA is the Mexican government safety valve; to relieve tremendous pressure of millions of poverty driven people, hoping to slide past our less than secure border. Has there been for decades a secret agenda of major players as the business world and other entities? To trick the American people into thinking, that their interests come first? In fact they remain ignorant that the border fence is intentionally left porous in places?

    There is a secret inducement, for illegal aliens to reach our soil? Otherwise, why is no rational explanation for not making it a felony in breaking our immigration laws, as it is in Mexico? There is an attraction–intentional or not–to import cheap labor for the Republicans and for those who are claiming their right to stay here are attracted to the fold of Democrats, who use their agenda to gain more future votes. Both parties need to be humiliated for what they have done to American culture. For the notice of the Leftist wing of the Democratic Party, no matter how you try to saturate the media, the TV, Radio and Internet with your interpretation for people who come here, without permission. They are not immigrants or undocumented; they are and ever will be–ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. Period! A number of States have taken the law into their own hands, because our central government won’t? Now enforced to some extent is E-verify, Secure Communities and the 287 G, policing laws, to root-out illegal aliens. This is a section of the SAVE ACT that was introduced by Rep. Heath Shuler (D-N.C.) in the House and Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) in the Senate.
    The SAVE Act is a three-pronged advance in reducing illegal immigration in the United States:
    •1) Mandates the utility of E-Verify for all public and private businesses countrywide.
    •2) increases internal enforcement by approving more grants to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and creating improvements to the deportation process
    •3) Augments border security through increased manpower, technology and funding.
    Our only salvation left to the American populace, is the sovereignty and constitution of the American people is that we need THE TEA PARTY. On any level they will not ratify any laws that are forwarded to Congress, which promotes illegal immigration. We are just importing, more and more poverty. That lowers wages and a poor standard of living for less privileged amongst us, and is part of the problem of the rising US deficit of 14.4 Trillion dollars.

    Humberto Fontova is a clownish hack with no credibility.

    Read Jon Lee Anderson for the real story on Che.

    • Omar

      You're wrong. Humberto Fontova is a well-respected author who tells the truth about Cuba. Jon Lee Anderson is a propagandist for the Castro regime.

  • No Yokos

    Hey Carlos, here's a song for ya! Put that in your bong and smoke it…

  • Vickie`

    People like this need to go improve their own countries instead of seeking public support here!
