Harry Belafonte Insults Herman Cainóbut Hails Fidel Castro
Townhall.com ^ | October 15, 2011 | Humberto Fontova

Posted on 10/15/2011 8:04:58 AM PDT by Kaslin

New York resident Harry Belafonte recently denounced Herman Cain as a “bad apple” as a “false Negro” and as someone “denied intelligence” and “denied a view of history.” (whatever that means.) His host Joy Behar snickered her approval of Belafonte’s every vocalization, often before they were decipherable.

“If you believe in justice,” vocalized Mr Belafonte in an interview with Cuba’s propaganda ministry years earlier, “if you believe in democracy, if you believe in people's rights, if you believe in the harmony of all humankind—then you have no choice but to back Fidel Castro as long as it takes!”

If only Herman Cain were a lily-white Stalinist whose regime murdered more people in its first three years in power than Hitler's murdered in its first six, jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin's--including the longest suffering black political prisoners in modern history. If only Herman Cain proposed policies to plunge a nation more prosperous than half of Europe’s into one that repels Haitians. If only he’d driven into exile—even with machine-gunners and Tiger Sharks as dutiful border guards-- 20 per cent of the population from a nation formerly flooded with immigrants.

Instead Herman Cain spent most of his life creating wealth and promoting freedom. He personifies the antithesis to the disaster and horror known as Castroism. This grates on Harry Belafonte.

And speaking of “denied a view of history.” (whatever that means) Belafonte’s own view is apparently “denied” an important datum: namely that if his hero had prevailed over the Butcher of Budapest in Oct. 1962, Belafonte’s career would have crashed, albeit right as it peaked.

“Of course I knew the missiles were nuclear-armed,” responded Fidel Castro to Robert McNamara during a meeting in 1992. “That’s precisely why I urged Khrushchev to launch them. And of course Cuba would have been utterly destroyed in the exchange.”

"If the missiles had remained, we would have shot them against the very heart of the U.S., including New York City. The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims.” (Che Guevara, November 1962.)

“My dream is to drop three Atomic Bombs on New York City (Raul –not Fidel—Castro, Nov. 1960.)

"The Negro?is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and drink, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent,” wrote AWS hero Che Guevara in his diaries. Shortly after entering Havana, Che took a break from signing death warrants and blasting apart the skulls of defenseless men and boys, exhaled, wiped his brow and gave a radio conference. A black listener asked him what the revolution planned to do for Cuba’s black. “We're going to do for Cuba’s blacks exactly what they did for the Cuban revolution. By which I mean nothing!”

“VIVA CHE!—VIVA FIDEL!” roared Harry Belfonte’s friend Jesse Jackson arm in arm with Castro at the Univsesity of Havana in 1994. Actually, Che was much too modest. “Nothing” is not an accurate description of Castroite treatment of Cuba's blacks. In fact, these lily-white sons (Fidel and Raul Castro) of a European Imperial soldier (Angel Castro) who butchered Cuban patriots for pay by the King of Spain, forcibly overthrew a Cuban government where Cuban blacks had served as President of the Senate, Minister of Agriculture, Chief of Army, and Head of State (Fulgencio Batista a grandson of slaves who was born in a palm-roofed shack in the Cuban countryside.) These blacks had all served elective and appointed office in a nation 72 per cent white, by the way.

Not that you'll learn any of this from the liberals' exclusive educational source on pre-Castro Cuba: the Godfather II movie, which is probably still an improvement over what you got in college. Today the prison population in Stalinist/Apartheid Cuba is 90% black while only 9% of the ruling Stalinist party is black.

In 1980 Harry Belafonte visited Cuba to collude with Castro’s KGB founded and mentored propaganda ministry for a documentary in his honor titled, “I Look at My Life.” Within walking distance of where Belafonte posed for Castro’s cameras detailing the horrors of life for black Americans, the world’s longest-suffering black political prisoner languished in a torture-chamber.

“N*gger!” taunted his Castroite jailers between tortures. “We pulled you down from the trees and cut off your tail!” Shortly before his death in 2006, this prisoner, Eusebio Penalver, granted this writer an interview. “For months I was naked in a 6 x 4 foot cell,” Eusebio recalled. “That’s 4 feet high, so you couldn’t stand. But I felt a great freedom inside myself. I refused to commit spiritual suicide.” Eusebio Penalver suffered longer in Castro’s prisons than Nelson Mandela in apartheid South Africa’s.

On another of Belafonte’s almost annual visits to Castro’s fiefdom he again posed for Castro’s propaganda ministry complaining about the stifling censorship in the U.S. “In the U.S. people don't know the truth," he vocalized for Castro’s press. Within walking distance of his fulminations against U.S. racism and censorship, Black human-rights activist, Dr. Oscar Biscet was being kicked, spat upon, and burned with cigarettes in a Castroite torture chamber. Cuban doctor, Oscar Elias Biscet had been sentenced to 25 years in Castro’s gulag for public readings of the Works of Martin Luther King and the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights.

Shortly after Belafonte’s Cuba visit in Dec. 2009 the Black human-rights activist Orlando Zapata-Tamayo, was beaten comatose by his Castroite jailers and left with a life-threatening fractured skull and Subdural Hematoma. A year later Zapata-Tamayo was dead after a lengthy hunger-strike. Samizdats smuggled out of Cuba by eye-witnesses’ report that while gleefully kicking and bludgeoning Tamayo, his Castroite jailers yelled: “Worthless N*gger!–Worthless Peasant!”

Apparently Castro’s KGB-founded and trained police regarded all of the above blacks as “False Negroes” and “bad-apples.” And surely the MSM kept you as informed about this half century of racist horrors 90 miles from U.S. shores as they did about Nelson Mandela, 8000 miles from U.S. shores?

Belafonte said this about Herman Cain:

‘I don’t think prayers were intended for him!’

The magnitude of the hatred, spite, pure mean spirit represented by this is beyond belief.

Just put all the likes of Carter and Belafonte and any other anti-American mental cases out on a little island in the Pacific and just get rid of them.

The more headlines we give this traitor, Belafonte, who took a large amount of his now spent fortune from the American people, the more we will hear from him. He is a washed up old political hack who thinks he can make headlines on his name. Go pound sand, Belafonte..you are soooooooo over!!

We should just make a list of “useful idiot” black so-called leaders and celebrities, so we can mark them off the list as they come out and take their shots at Herman Cain.

In fact, we ought to be able to categorize them:

“Not authentically black”
“Uncle Tom” (the old standby)
“Wasn’t down for the struggle (aka “didn’t march in Selma”)
“Doesn’t speak for all African-Americans” (as if the Justice Bros. Inc. do?)
Flat-out insults (like Belefonte’s “bad apple” and “false negro”
Stupid (like Belefonte’s “denied intelligence” crack)
Drugged (i.e. “get off the crack pipe”)

I’m sure I’m missing some big one...but ff course the biggest category will be the fact that Mr. Cain is a self-made conservative Republican businessman, not a snivelling liberal Democrat moonbat...

Long ago, before I knew anything about politics, left or right, I liked Belafonte. His album at Carnegie Hall is a classic. I memorized the words to his Man Piaba song and a few others. He has become a bitter, ugly old man. Truly sad. He will not pray for Herman Cain but I will pray for his soul.

Some aspects of some men are known by their “enemies”..
Harry Half-White (Belafonte) has a lot in common with Barry Half-White (Obama)...

They both miss the obvious..
Capitalism creates more wealth, Socialism is a parasite on that wealth..
Like a political Tape-Worm, Vampire Bat, Tick, Mosquito, Intestinal worm, or Louse...
The democrat party is indeed parasitic.. in nature and malfeasant in essence..

There are few that are better or more passionate about telling the imperishable truth about Cuba, Castro and Che, than Humberto Fontova.

Anyone who would make it possible for citizens to work, instead of keeping them on the welfare plantation, is a threat to these people.

Wow. I guess I shouldn’t be terribly surprised by the racism of scum like the Castros and that Che demon but that these American black folks who idolize these racists while blasting folks like Herman Cain and Clarence Thomas is simply breathtaking and mind-boggling!

How is the world does this guy get so much publicity? I can think of just one song he did (Banana Boat Song), and I see it was released in 1956! This should give hope to all other washed-up entertainers.

Harry Belafonte, Sean Penn, Michael Moore etc.

If it weren't for the American Media, they would be nobody.

If they were any other nationality, they would be NOBODY.

He has become a bitter, ugly old man.

He was a bitter, ugly (white-hating Communist) but talented young man too. He simply was very careful to rake in a fortune from unsuspecting fans before coming out of the closet politically. That's typical of most showbiz Commies. They take full advantage of capitalism to fill their Swiss bank accounts before using their fame to attack the system that made them wealthy.

Belafonte is a red diaper baby, a red to the core, card carrying member of the Communist party USA (CPUSA). He hates the US with a very deep passion and never has anything good to say about the US.

Nor does he apparently know of the bigotry practiced by the communists that makes the bigotry here in the United States appear benign.
