Posted on 09/22/2010 9:35:04 AM PDT by Kaslin
Castro DGIs (Directorio General de Intelligencia, trained and funded for decades by the Soviet KGB and East German STASI) recently stuck their fingers in their mouth and issued a sharp whistle of summons.
Celebrity ears from New York to Hollywood immediately jerked up. Soon Castro's propaganda ministry was mobbed by eager American actors, rockers and folkies, their eyes wide, their tongues out and their tails wagging frantically. Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, Benicio del Toro, Oliver Stone, Martin Sheen, Edward Asner, Pete Seeger, Ry Cooder, Bonnie Raitt, Chrissie Hynde, Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, Danny Glover were the A-listers among these cheeky rebels and human-rights activists submitting to commands and pats on the head from Stalinist apparatchiks.
The celebrities have all added their name to a petition to president Obama to free the five Cubans unjustly imprisoned in the U.S., writes Castros propaganda ministry. Marching in perfect lockstep and chanting in perfect chorus, those listed above also accuse U.S. jailers of visiting horrific torture upon The Cuban Five.
The charges and convictions against The Cuban Five (by an independent judiciary in a free country, the U.S.) might actually be studied by these celebrities. The news networks that have earned Havana bureaus might actually mention these charges and convictions. And pigs might fly.
Judicial evidence in an archaic bourgeois detail, proclaimed the Castros regimes chief hangman, Che Guevara. We execute from Revolutionary conviction..And we will continue executing! Whereupon the regime co-founded by Che Guevara proceeded to jail political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalins and murder them at a higher rate than pre-war Hitlers. Needless to add, Che Guevara ranks as top T-shirt icon for protestors against U.S. judicial procedures, especially capital punishment, who include most of the above-mentioned celebrities.
Enter Townhall. Below please find some important items overlooked by the above celebrities and by news bureaus beholden to Castro.
On September 14, 1998, the FBI uncovered a Castro spy ring in Miami and arrested ten of them. Four others managed to scoot back to Cuba. These became known as the Wasp Network, or The Cuban Five in Castroite parlance. According to the FBIs affidavit, the 26 charges against the convicted Castro-spies championed by the above celebrities included:
Gathering intelligence against the Boca Chica Air Naval Station in Key West, the McDill Air Force Base in Tampa and the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command in Homestead, Fla.
Compiling the names, home addresses and medical files of the U.S. Southern Commands top officers, along with those of hundreds of officers stationed at Boca Chica.
Infiltrating the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command.
Sending letter bombs to Cuban-Americans.
Spying on McDill Air Force Base, the U.S. armed forces worldwide headquarters for fighting low-intensity conflicts.
Locating entry points into Florida for smuggling explosives.
Sean Penn and Susan Sarandons poster-boys also infiltrated the Cuban-exile group Brothers to the Rescue, who flew unarmed planes to rescue Cuban rafters in the Florida straits, also known as the cemetery without crosses. The estimates of the number of Cubans dying horribly in the cemetery without crosses run from 50-85,000. 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 the Glorious Revolution, by the way, Cuba took in more immigrants per-capita than the U.S., including the Ellis Island years.)
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 Danny Glovers and Ed Asners 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, Stalinist Cubas 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 U.S. 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 the age of 18 was fulfilling his dream of becoming a U.S. citizen. His next was joining the United States Marine Corps and volunteering for service in Vietnam. He returned with several decorations. As a member of Brothers to the Rescue, Alejandre often dropped flowers over the sea, in memory of the thousands theyd been unable to rescue in time. A man with a weapon or with both hands free to fight has always palsied Castro with fright. The notion of Fidel Castro facing a U.S. Marine in combat mode is simply laughable, in a pathetic sort of way. So Castro waited for Armando Alejandre Jr and his Brothers to be carrying flowers and made his move, murdering them in cold blood. MIGs against Cessnas, cannon and rockets against flowers.
This is a Castro specialty. In high school Fidel got into an argument over a debt (he was always a deadbeat) with a schoolmate named Ramon Mestre, who pounded him like a gong. Fidel cried uncle and slunk away whimpering that hed go fetch the money he owed Ramon.
Instead he came back with a cocked pistol, hoping to surprise and murder the unarmed Mestre, whod already gone home. Theres your gen-you-wine Fidel in all his macho splendor. He does have a long memory however. Six months after he grabbed power, Castro had his goons grab Senor Mestre, who then suffered 20 years in Castros dungeons and torture chambers.
Regarding prison-related tortures, heres Ariel Sigler Amaya, a Cuban journalist recently released from Castros dungeons. Please note what Mr Sigler looked like upon his arrest in 2003. This arrest, by the way, was for attempting to write things about Fidel Castro in Cuba similar to what Danny Glover, Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, Ed Asner, etc. said about George Bush in the U.S.
Why the HELL aren’t these celebrities names on a petition to free CUBAN’s like Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet unjustly imprisoned in Fidel’s paradise???
Great reading from Humberto Fontova as always.
Add them all up and you still won't total one functioning brain..
Maybe they should be forced to move there after all their assets over 250K are redistributed. American citizenship can be revoked for treasonous acts.......
“Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, Benicio del Toro, Oliver Stone, Martin Sheen, Edward Asner, Pete Seeger, Ry Cooder, Bonnie Raitt, Chrissie Hynde, Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, Danny Glover”
In a Free Cuba, these faces should by law be placed as targets inside every public urinal in the newly liberated nation!
Lending their names to anti-American causes insults the very public which made them famous...what we give, we can also take away.
“Add them all up and you still won’t total one functioning brain..”
But you sure would have a whole lot of “feeling” going on.
When Cuba is free, I bet that if these idiots visit, they’ll get lynched.
The best expression I’ve seen of these Hollywood communist monsters calls them the “Scumdog Millionaires”.
They are scum. They are “running dogs”, a Chinese/Korean expression meaning “lackeys”, “lickspittles”, or “toadies”. And yes, the bulk of them are millionaires as well.
The only objection to this expression, is that it is passively insulting to the hard working and poverty-stricken children of Bombay, who are far more honorable and upright than these Hollywood swine.
The only celebrity who puts his butt on the line against Castro is Andy Garcia.
Since socialism is their “cure”, I recommend that the US government extract from them all of their assets such that they are left with a networth of
and apply that amount directly to the debt.
I forget the article but I recall reading some time ago that there’s a very good reason why the Hollywood Left and other assorted libtards and politicians who have made numerous visits to Castro’s Island Paradise are so loyal and obedient.
The DGI learned plenty from its Soviet bloc mentors and that included the seduction and surveillance of its distinguished visitors. The DGI always made sure to keep its guests well supplied with booze, drugs and ESPECIALLY hookers of both sexes and make sure they knew Cuba was the place to let their hair down. Castro has decades worth of home movies of celebrities-behaving-badly and they know it.
THIS is what ensures their obedience and I look forward to the day “The Private Files of Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz” are revealed and enter the public domain.
I vaguely remember that article and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if it or a good part was true.
I would assume it to be true. Spying on and blackmailing visitors has always been SOP for all communist dictatorships.
Gloria Estefan isn’t much of a Castro Fan Either.
Andy Garcia’s The Lost City was a direct shoot at Castro’s revolution.
I’m surprised Hollywood hasn’t sent him off to the Gulag for such traitorous propaganda. sarc//
You can also add Maria Conchita Alonso to the list. She called out Sean Penn for supporting Chavez.
I think another reason they like him so much is that they get VIP treatment on an entirely different scale. Instead of a posh hotel, they likely get a mansion and escorts by the police and I bet they get to tell Fidel (who pretends to take them seriously) their ideas on how things should be run. he pretends to really LISTEN to them the way that we don’t. I wonder, if/when Cuba is freed, if the celebs would make it out alive if they visited and tried to get VIP treatment.
I’m sure they’ve bullied and harrassed the normal citizenry for some time now each time they visit. It’ll be enjoyable seeing how many celebs have been acting out while visiting Cuba at Castro’s behest. A huge reason that these celebs venerate dictators is that tehy live through them vicariously, wishing tehy could exercise such a high level of power with no accountability.
The entertainers suck up to these scum because Castro gives them a taste of power, real power likely and it’s just enough to keep them coming back for more. I cannot imagine the stunts they get to pull and get away with over there.
Leftists have always had an instinctive admiration for terrorists and tyrants. They love the exercise of brute force over the population and only wish they could do likewise to us. Many have written about it, among them Jonah Goldberg and David Horowitz.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the DGI didn’t have whole S&M palaces constructed for the enjoyment of his visiting admirers. Lord only knows what sort of things Oliver Stone is into when he visits...
I’m pretty sure Clinton unveiled some nasty threats against family members back in Cuba to shut up the likes of Gloria and Andy during the Elian Gonzalez affair.
There are some smart people in Hollywood,thankfully.
