Posted on 07/13/2012 7:14:48 AM PDT by Kaslin
Though a consistently good show, few conservatives mistook M.A.S.H for anything but pinko propaganda. Last week long-time M.A.S.H star Mike Farrell (Capt. B.J. Hunnicut) took the last few baby-steps and started spouting outright Communist propaganda.
In a letter to President Obama, Farrell officially partners with Castros KGB-trained DGI urging the release of five of their agents and officers who were convicted in 2001 of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. and conspiracy to murder Americans. The Supreme Court has twice upheld the convictions of these Communist terrorists and accessories to murder. In 1933, Stalins propaganda chief, Willi Munzenberg, re-monikered the Soviet Comintern as the "International Aid Committee for the Victims of Fascism." The Soviets Cuban satraps and their celebrity propaganda auxiliaries have one-upped even Munzenberg. These convicted Castroite terrorists-- were now given to understand by the former M.A.S.H star-- are actually peace-loving anti-terrorists, flower-children of sorts. Heres the heart of Farrells letter:
Dear President Obama,
Release them because they came here only to monitor the activities of violent Cuban exiles who, operating from bases in Miami of which our government is well aware, were planning violent actions against innocent people in Cuba. Release them because they were trying to prevent more brutal acts against their country and save innocent lives.
But according to the FBIs affidavit, the convicted Castro-agents who Farrell champions were engaged in, among other acts:
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.
Farrells 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 50,000-85,000. 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 Castroism, by the way, Cuba was swamped with more immigrants per-capita than the U.S., mostly from Europe. People from nearby Haiti jumped on rafts desperate to enter Cuba, which enjoyed a higher standard of living than much of Europe. Also, during the 1950s when all Cubans were perfectly free to emigrate with all family, property, etc., and U.S. visas were issued to them for the asking, about the same number of Americans lived in Cuba as Cubans in the U.S. In 1953 more Cubans vacationed (then voluntarily went home) from the U.S. than Americans vacationed in Cuba. Alas none of this features in The Godfather II. So its mostly unknown.
By February 1996, Brothers to The Rescue had flown 1,800 of these humanitarian missions and helped rescue 4,200 men, women and children. That month Mike Farrells 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, Castros Top Guns, saluted and sprang to action. They 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 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 they were unable to rescue in time. So Castro waited for Armando Alejandre Jr and his Brothers to be carrying these flowersand made his move, murdering them in cold blood. MIGs against Cessnas. Cannon and rockets against flowers. Details of the atrocity are provided in a book by Matt Lawrence, one of Alejandres colleagues in rescue.
The violence and brutality Farrell parrots about the rescuers actually involved dropping flowers over the Florida Straits and saving thousands of innocent lives, including thousands of women and children whose only crime was attempting to fleeat enormous risk to their lives-- a nation formerly swamped with immigrants.
The premeditated atrocity against Alejandre and his brothers is what added the manslaughter and conspiracy to commit murder charges (on top of the ones listed above, 26 charges total) against Mike Farrells recent propaganda assignment from Castro.
But why pick on Farrell, some might ask?
After all, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter also pleas for these terrorists freedom. Worse, he made the plea while they served an honored quest of the Stalinist regime. "I had the opportunity to meet the families of the five Cuban patriots," (the terrorists convicted by a U.S. jury), boasted Carter to Castros media last year. I'm well aware of the shortcomings of the U.S. judicial system.
Consider the scene: the former U.S. President known as the Elder Statesman of the U.S. majority political party, while an official guest of a State Sponsor of Terrorism, saw fit to denounce convictions of foreign terrorists twice upheld by the U.S. Supreme court. Carters denunciation of his nations judicial system was openly broadcast into the microphones of a regime whose legal code was adopted from Cheka chief Felix Dzerzhinsky. Do not search for evidence, Dzerzhinskys top lieutenant Martin Latsis instructed his hangmen in the Ukraine. Simply ask him to what class he belongs, what are his origins, education, and profession. Those are the questions that should decide the fate of the accused.
Upon entering Havana in January 1959 Dzerzhinsky disciple and Castros chief hangman Che Guevara adopted the Cheka code almost word for word: Judicial evidence is an archaic bourgeois detail, he instructed his prosecutors. We execute and jail from revolutionary conviction. These executions would ultimately surpass Hitlers during the Night of the Long Knives and the rate of jailings would exceed Stalins during his Great Terror.
While denouncing the U.S. judicial system from cue cards provided by the regime responsible for all the above and that curses the country that elected him as The Great Enemy of Mankind!, (and came within an unapologetic hair of nuking it), Jimmy Carter also hailed Fidel Castro as an old friend.
And were up in arms over Jane Fonda?
Mike Farrell, Pffttt!!!
I always thought Klinger was crazy, but apparently Jamie Farr is conservative.
Turns out one of the “rational” doctors was who actually needed a section 8...
Larry Linville (Frank Burns) said he left M*A*S*H after his original five-year contract expired and also said referenced that the show was becoming “preachy.” Farrell never hid his lib beliefs even when a guest on the all-news station(s). Jamie Farr (Klinger), IIRC, is right-of-center politically.
Farrell has always been an extreme left fringe wacko. He supported the Sandinistas and Nunez. He’s so far out to lunch, he never came close to returning. He HATES America worse than Obama (well at least as badly).
Check Mr Farrell’s filmography at IMDb for a good chuckle.
Mike Farrell destroyed MASH, or the writers did with his character. What a wet, depressed sock...and apparently a communist sympathizer.
Too bad Colonel Flagg didn’t work him over.
As sad as this story is, it doesn’t take away the fact that the show was funny and at times poignant. I really liked it a lot.
I meant to say he supported Carlos Ortega, the leader of the Sandinistan guerrillas.
Ahh... no wonder I haven't been getting any replies from the WH.
My letters always start with "Hey numb nuts,".
The show was great until BJ replaced Trapper.
Trapper (Wayne Rogers) is a regular guest on the Fox Business channel.
I bit off his left ear.
All i needed to see was the words “Mash star” and “castro” to know exactly which commie clown this article was about.
I always wondered why actors would leave a popular show and their careers tanked afterwards. I think it’s safe to assume that these “right-of-center” actors have been blackballed - wish they would come out and name names (Larry Linville is dead now, but there are others who know what’s going on). Mike Farrell is one of the worst, and there are many more doing the bidding of the Enemies of America.
Farrell was also a big fan of that murderer Tookie. I was delighted the day we gave him the needle; Farrell cried.
I try to avoid patronizing anything with either of them in it.
Fortunately, neither are in very many "must see" vehicles.
Farrell has a long history of being one of Hollyweird’s most extreme leftists, constantly slamming America and siding with communists, no matter what the issue. Even worse (believe it or not) than most of the common lefty scumbags that usually get cited nowadays.
I remember Farrell in the 80s supporting every Leftwing Loon cause out there, including the Sandanistas and Cuba. He was always extreme. His joining MASH was around the time that it really started going downhill. No comedy, no conflict — everyone was friends at that point. And it turned into a weekly sermon about whatever the Leftwing cause of the day was.
I wonder what "Captain BJ" would say if it were revealed that Augusto Pinochet sent agents to the US to monitor the actions of Chilean refugees?.
I knew Alda was a liberal and could get preachy but for some reason, I never disliked him and if I see something he did on TV, I watch it. I love his performance in Crimes & Misdemeanors. I liked Four Seasons. Farrell, on the other hand, seemed like an Angry Leftist from Day 1, I remember seeing him on TV at political rallies in the 80s and thinking, “this guy is a Communist.”
Time has a way of proving the idiocy Leftist propaganda. Sadly, all of this was already known when MASH was being produced.
Farrell was (and is) always whining about the death penalty earned by vicious killers, but offered no support for Terry Schiavo.
There are hypocrites, and then there’s Farrell.
When Wayne Rogers left the show, Alda took complete control and with Farrell to egg him on, it became a boring weekly sermon on the evils of war and American culture. There were still some funny episodes, but they became fewer and the show became too preachy.
He is also a regular on one of the Fox News Saturday morning business programs. I don’t remember which one though
Why Farrell? I guess ya gotta do something when you can’t find work.
Mike Farrell has always been the poster boy for the contention that Liberalsim is Indeed a Mental Disease.
Well, MASH simply outlived its ability to come up with believable story lines. Most series are like that. After about five years, virtually every sitcom or drama becomes stale. MASH was no different. It always was a little preachy, but the writing overcame the preachiness. When Wayne Rogers left, the series went downhill fast.
When I read the title I knew too who Fontova was talking about. The second sentence in the first paragraph confirmed it
The show lasted three times as long as the Korean War.
He would blame Nixon since Pinochet gained power with the help of Nixon.
Arnold Nachmanoff, party dude with Obama , Sr in Hawaii, was involved in all of that with Kissinger. When the 40 Committee was asked their opinions, Arnie said he though we should give 700,000 of our money (which later turned out to be much more) to help shore up a Newspaper there but make it a condition the paper would launch an attack on Allende.
I knew it wasn’t Wayne Rogers before I even clicked the link....
Fortunately Mike Farrell is about as relevant as that Stalinist, Ed Asner.
Yeah, me too, but Alda runs a close second.
And if I remember correctly, Wayne Rogers was somewhat conservative and made a fortune in real estate and other investments after he left the show.
The show went from "Preachy" to "Outright Propaganda" when Alda started directing it.
Trapper (Wayne Rogers) is a regular guest on the Fox Business channel.
Forgot that he is decent guy too.
[on working with Alan Alda] If I wanted a sermon I'd go to church. He just wouldn't quit. He just kept adding more speeches and more moralistic stuff. After he got famous, he got really pompous. He started thinking he was speaking God's words--not the lines in the script, not his own personal thoughts. He thought he was speaking the words of God. I think he thought and believed that God was speaking through him. A person like that is not easy to be around.
I wonder how much “BJ” would like really being a communist.
Take away everything he owns. Give him a small apartment, just like everyone else. Tell him where he will work, what he will do, and when. Say he will be provided with everything he needs, but the state cannot provide. Everything he produces goes to the state. Take away ALL rights, even of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Tell him who he can marry and how many children they can have.
Trapper John was the best, I actually saw him on Fox news, he is a very sucessful businessman. Has made a fortune in agriculture and real estate. Leans conservative. Always thought Mike Farrel was a lousy actor, his character added nothing to the show.
“Cashin’ in.” The last of the four Saturday morning shows. Jonathon Honig is also on that show. We like them both.
