Maybe its just a coincidence that somebody like Jesse Ventura is also a major fan of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara? (Or claims to be for the publicity value among the hip?)
Recalling his visit to Cuba and meeting with Fidel Castro in 2002 Ventura grew misty-eyed: Fidel Castro looked into my eyes and told me I was a man of great courage Maybe he (Castro) saw a little of him in me.
Recall the Cowardly Lions reaction when the Wizard grants him the NERVE. Well, Jesse Venturas moronic gloating outdoes even the lions (Shucks, folks, Im speechless..ha-ha Aint it the truth! Aint it the truth!)
And this imbecile and buffoon (or is it master fraud and expert showman?) was elected governor of a populous and prosperous state, and honored by Harvard University with the title of Visiting Fellow, to say nothing of his career as media host and author.
And Ill tell you another thing that shows me a little bit more about Castro also revealed Ventura in an interview. The main downtown building in Havana has this huge flat wall and it has got a huge portrait on it. Its not Castro. Its Che Guevara. The biggest photograph in downtown Havana was a mural on a wall of Che. Now if Castro was such an egomaniac and all this, wouldnt he put himself up there instead of Che?
For a man with Venturas (mostly self-) vaunted street smarts, Fidel Castros blandishments of (the conveniently dead) Che Guevara should be a cinch to plumb. Didnt Don Barzini send the biggest and fanciest flowers to Don Corleones funeral?
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported how on his Cuba visit Ventura spoke at the University of Havana where he exhorted students to dream big and work hard to achieve success! Here one blinks, looks againand gapes. You long to believe otherwise, you grope for an extenuation, you hope you misreadbut its inescapable: A man elected as governor of a populous and prosperous U.S. State (and a Harvard Visiting Fellow) cannot distinguish between the subjects of a Stalinist police state and the attendees of an AmWay convention.
Ask anyone familiar with Communism. To achieve success in such as Castros Stalinist fiefdom, you join the Communist Party, you pucker up and stoop down behind Fidel and his toadies and smooch away. (Either that or jump on a raft.)
So come to think of it, Jesse Ventura indeed had much to teach those Havana U. students. On his Cuba visit he performed brilliantly.
Years later when, during an interview, The Daily Callers Jaime Weinstein suggested to Ventura that Castro runs a very inhumane dictatorship, a shocked (or expertly performing?) Ventura gasped: They have the highest health care of any Latin American country! What has he (Fidel Castro) done thats inhumane?
For the benefit of the esteemed academics who granted Venturas Visiting Fellowship at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, heres a few fully- documented items that might address their esteemed Visiting Fellows question:
Fidel Castros regime jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalins during the Great Terror, murdered more Cubans in its first three years in power than Hitlers murdered Germans during its first six and came closest of anyone in history to starting a worldwide Nuclear war. In the above process Fidel Castro and Che Guevara converted a nation with a higher per-capita income than half of Europe and a huge influx of immigrants into one that repels Haitians and boasts the highest suicide rate in the Western Hemisphere.
"What has Cuba ever done to us?! the again shocked (or masterfully miming) Harvard Visiting Fellow gasped recently on his show On the Grid. We've been practicing terrorism against them!
War against the United States is my true destiny, Fidel Castro had confided in a letter to a friend in 1958. When this wars over Ill start that much bigger war.
Of course I knew the missiles were nuclear- armed, responded Fidel Castro to Robert McNamara during a meeting in 1992. Thats precisely why I urged Khrushchev to launch them!
But for the purposes of this discussion lets overlook the above trivialities, as theyre obviously regarded by Harvards esteemed academics. Instead lets focus on the fact that Jesse Ventura claims some sort of fellowship with American servicemen, especially Viet-Nam veterans. (Granted, this fellowship isto put it mildlynot fully reciprocated.)
So again, for the benefit of the esteemed academics who granted Venturas Visiting Fellowship at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, well mention a few items to highlight their Visiting Fellows ignorance (or expert burlesque?) To wit:
In 1967 Fidel Castro sent several of his regime's most promising sadists to North Vietnamese prison camps to instruct the Vietnamese reds in finer points of their profession. Testimony during Congressional hearings titled, "The Cuban Torture Program; Torture of American Prisoners by Cuban Agents" held on November 1999 provide some of the harrowing details.
The communists titled their torture program "the Cuba Project," and it took place during 67-68 primarily at the Cu Loc POW camp (also known as "The Zoo") on the southwestern edge of Hanoi. In brief, this "Cuba Project" was a Joseph Mengelese experiment run by Castroite Cubans to determine how much physical and psychological agony a human can endure before cracking.
The North Vietnameseplease note! never, ever asked the Castroites for advice on combat. They knew better. Unlike director Steven Soderbergh, they saw through the whole "Che as Guerrilla" hoopla for what it was and is: a Castroite hoax to camouflage the Inspector Clousseau-like bumblings of an incurable military idiot--and more specifically, Castro's own hand in the idiot's offing.
No, the North Vietnamese sought Castroite tutelage only on torture of the defenseless, well aware of the Castroites expertise in this matter.
For their experiment the Castroites chose twenty American POWs. One died: Lieutenant Colonel Earl Cobeil, an Air Force F-105 pilot. His death came slowly, in agonizing stages, under torture. Upon learning his Castroite Cuban affiliation, the American POWs nicknamed Cobeil's Cuban torturer, "Fidel."
"The difference between the Vietnamese and "Fidel' was that once the Vietnamese got what they wanted they let up, at least for a while, testified fellow POW Captain Ray Vohden USN. Not so with the Cubans. Earl Cobeil had resisted 'Fidel' to the maximum. I heard the thud of the belt falling on Cobeil's body again and again, as Fidel screamed "you son of a beech! I will show you! Kneel down!--KNEEL DOWN! The Cubans unmercifully beat a mentally defenseless, sick American naval pilot to death."
"Earl Cobeil was a complete physical disaster when we saw him," testified another fellow POW, Col. Jack Bomar. "He had been tortured for days and days and days. His hands were almost severed from the manacles. He had bamboo in his shins. All kinds of welts up and down all over; his face was bloody. Then 'Fidel' began to beat him with a fan belt.
According to the book Honor Bound the tortures of U.S. POWs by Castros agents were the worst sieges of torture any American withstood in Hanoi.
I suspect he will be the center of a “knock out game” with seals and other patriots.
Ventura was a flash in the pan who should have retired quietly in the land of has-beens, instead of hanging around to be a fool.
This could be the reason Ventura the turd got his ass kicked! Maybe SEALs know a commie and a turd when they smell one.
He has always been a lowlife.
Since Jesse couldn’t kick Chris Kyle’s azz he went to court and kicked Chris Kyles’ wife’s azz. I guess his good name is now restored and he will feel welcome at future SEAL reunions. (sarc)
Jesse is sure a fur ball! He used to come on the Mike Trivisanno Show on WTAM here in Cleveland. He called himself Mr. Blue. They disguised his voice electronically, but,,,, he has such distinctive mannerisms, etc., that it was easy to tell just who Mr. Blue was! Ive spent lots of time in recording studios, and I knew it was him after hearing one sentence. I emailed Mike and asked him when he was going to have Jesse Blue on again. No answer, but the next time he was on, they altered his voice even more!
If he comes on again, Im going to call in and call him Jesse. But theyll just bleep it out!
What—a Libertarian not keeping the communism in the closet? Even the anarchists of old knew better than to honestly reveal their communism.
Another grave I pray I live long enough to piss on.
Jesse bullies widows but admires mass murderers like Fidel and Che. Disgusting.
One has to be careful about what you say about Boa Boi. Swish!
Stay tuned here at this article. I’m hoping that one of the Cuban torturers’ victim at the Hanoi Hilton will soon be joining us.
See if he mentioned “Lump” as well as his dealings with “Fidel” and a couple other of Castro’s finest.
Steroids kill brain tissue.
Ventura is a has-been who never was.
So libertarians are closet communists?
Please pardon me while I chuckle a bit at your ignorance.
