Harry Belafonte Insults Herman Cainbut Hails Fidel Castro
Oct. 17 - 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 Belafontes every vocalization, often before they were decipherable.
If you believe in justice, vocalized Mr Belafonte in an interview with Cubas propaganda ministry years earlier, if you believe in democracy, if you believe in people's rights, if you believe in the harmony of all humankindthen 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 Europes into one that repels Haitians. If only hed driven into exileeven 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) Belafontes own view is apparently denied an important datum: namely that if his hero had prevailed over the Butcher of Budapest in Oct. 1962, Belafontes 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. Thats 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 FidelCastro, Nov. 1960.)
Shows how much Fidel ever cared for Cuba. I bet not too many Cubans in Cuba know that Fidel said he would have sacrificed Cuba itself for the sake of the socialist USSR (while Fidel himself would doubtless be safe in a bunker).
Ever notice how moonbats like this dork cannot talk in sentences that don't sound as if they were put together from a collection of liberal soundbites? If one of these people were ever able to express themselves in normal, self-constructed language, I would fall on the floor.
The "harmony of all humankind"? Yeah, as long as YOU agree with THEM.
Good site, thanks for posting it, DFU.
