Loudmouthed Latino Demonstrators Cow American-Owned Hotel
Townhall.com ^ | February 16, 2013 | Humberto Fontova

Posted on 02/16/2013 5:10:44 AM PST by Kaslin

This week some “Latinos” in Florida detected an “ethnic slur” on the wall of the ritzy South Beach Hotel W’s lounge. Within minutes all hell broke loose. A few stormed over to the manager and DEMANDED it be taken down, promptly and ceremoniously! The rest got on their BlackBerrys and iPhones to “burn up the wires.” Word spread throughout this tightly-knit “Latino community” and soon the hotel was blitzed with scathing e-mails, phone calls and tweets.

This “Latino” groups powerful “Latina” Congressperson even jumped into the fray, firing off a letter to the Hotel owners, denouncing the “insensitivity” of the picture on the wall.

Like Rochester for Jack Benny, Lurch for Morticia, Prissy for Scarlett O’Hara and Chris Matthews for Obama-- the management of this Hotel W scurried to dutiful action. They promptly removed the offending picture, and even issued a groveling apology. "We did it as a matter of respect and sensitivity toward the local community," whimpered hotel manager Damien O'Connor. "We are sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused."

“Now that’s better!” sneered the “Latinos.” “And don’t let it happen again!”

Just the thing to warm the hearts of the current White House team and their media auxiliaries, you might think? Just the thing to get Republicans and Teabillies grumbling about “kow-towning to uppity and ungrateful furrr-ners! (most of them probably illegal!)” right?

After all, didn’t “Latinos” back the White House Team 3 to 1 over the Republican candidate? Hasn’t “Latino” scorn for Republicans become a media cause célèbre and a Democratic/Media gloating point? And hasn’t the search for its Holy Grail of a cure spawned a cottage industry for Republican brain-trusters and “consultants?”

But both Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were missing in action on this “minority sensitivity” issue. And both La Raza and The Congressional Hispanic Caucus were conspicuous by their absence.

More amazing still, the Hotel W is rated among the top for “celebrity sightings,” with such as Sean Penn, Naomi Campbell, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones Leonardo Di Caprio as regular hangers-out. So how could such people—normally so hyper-sensitive to ethnic issues, normally so excruciatingly politically-correct, and normally so eager to condemn any such “bigotry”—have patronized this place and befriended the owner?

Easy. The aggrieved “Latino” group, you see, were Americans of Cuban heritage (the most loyal Republicans in modern U.S. history). The quick-acting Congresswoman was in fact Cuban-born Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. And the cause of their complaint was a picture of Che Guevara on the lounge wall.

Need I go further?....Probably not, but I will anyway:

As often explained here at Townhall: that Che iconography remains an (almost) exclusively Cuban-American grievance says much about our media and education. So please write this down on you palm or wrist, amigas and amigos (better yet, save it on your iPhones): Che Guevara’s hate-obsession was actually the U.S. Got it?

He murdered and tortured (defenseless) Cubans because of their supposed affiliation with the U.S. ("U.S.--Backed" Batista, the CIA, etc.) As a public service to Americans of other ethnic heritages, here are some reasons, in the form of Che Guevara’s ravings, why Hotel W (and many, many others) should also apologize to you:

The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind!”

“The U.S. is ‘a carnivorous animal feeding on the helpless!”

“Against those hyenas there is no option but extermination!”

“We will bring the war to the imperialist enemies’ (Americans) very home, to his places of work and recreation. The imperialist enemy (Americans) must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we’ll destroy him!

“We must keep our hatred (against the U.S.) alive and fan it to paroxysm!”

“The U.S. is the perpetrator of exploitation and oppression against all the peoples of the world!”

“If the nuclear missiles had remained (in Cuba) we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City. The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims."

And here’s the probable reason--despite Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s genocidal lust-- why many tens of thousands of Americans are alive today:

“What!” Khrushchev gasped on Oct. 28, 1962 upon a message from Cuba, as recalled by his son Sergei. “Is he (Fidel Castro) proposing that we start a nuclear war?! That we launch missiles from Cuba?! But that is insane! Remove them (our missiles) as soon as possible! Before it’s too late.

Before something terrible happens. (Please note that Nikita Khrushchev’s own son, an eye witness to the near calamity, presents a radically different version of the “solution” to the Cuban Missile Crisis than do Kennedy court scribes and publicists, most latterly in the form of Chris Matthews.)

According to the Cuba Archive, the regime co-founded by Che Guevara – with firing squads, forced-labor camps, torture and drownings at sea – has caused an estimated 102,000 deaths, mostly Cuban of course. But whenever they could get their hands on an American “hyena” they really spit on their hands, rolled up their sleeves, and indulged. To wit:

When during the summer of 1960 Castro and Che’s gunmen stormed into almost 6000 U.S. owned businesses and stole them at all Soviet gunpoint, a few owners resisted. (Did the MSM inform you that this was the cause of the so-called embargo? And that it remains eminently pertinent today because the Castro regime has not compensated a penny of the almost $7 billion they stole? Didn’t think so.)

At any rate, one of these looted businessmen was Howard Anderson who owned a filling stations and Jeep dealership (not a casino or brothel, which were relatively rare in pre-Castro Cuba, by the way.) I’ll quote from Anderson v. Republic of Cuba, No. 01-28628 (Miami-Dade Circuit Court, April 13, 2003). "In one final session of torture, Castro's agents drained Howard Anderson's body of blood before sending him to his death at the firing squad."

Castro and Che’s blood-lust against Americans was such that they sent their torturers thousands of miles to get their hands on (defenseless, as usual) ones in Viet-Nam. According to the book Honor Bound the tortures of U.S. POWs by Castro’s agents were “the worst sieges of torture any American withstood in Hanoi.”

Made aware of this, we’re certain Hotel W’s celebrity patrons will now shun it like the plague.

Personally I would have just called the local ICE unit and told them I know where a lot of deportees that have been evading them were at. End of story.

As a non-Latino, non-Hispanic I must say I am proud of the Cuban expatriates, now Americans and their stand against Hotel W.

Damn Proud. Even of Congress woman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

The younger generation of Cubans is Democrat friendly and probably splits voting 50/50 for Democrats and Republicans. Older Vietnamese are Republican. I’ll bet their young Viet-American children are voting 50/50 too

Gloria Estefan was out fund raising for JugEars

NO one is evading an ICE arrest. ICE isn’t allowed to.

Hispanics are naturally conservative. I’ve always said this. They supported Reagan.

God please send us a christian candidate, that is all inclusive, can communicate strongly enough to overcome media deception, with values before business, and the faith to withstand the armies of darkness. Help our country return to You, know Your love, and live Your will. amen

Cuban-born Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla)------rushed to aid the loudmouth “Latinos” of Cuban heritage.

Mmmmmm.....Ros-Lehtinen is so helpful to latinos.

CASE IN POINT Sen Menendez (D-NJ) is in business with his Miami pal---Dominican Dr Salomon Melgen--- WRT a lucrative Dominican port security deal to x-ray cargo for drugs----worth about a billion dollars over time.

A month after Melgen contributed $5,000 to Ros-Lehtinen, the congresswoman on April 10 wrote Aníbal de Castro, the Dominican Republic’s ambassador to the United States.

Her letter asked about “what specific steps your administration has taken to improve cargo security and reducing the flow of drugs to the United States and how we can work together towards achieving this goal.”

Ros-Lehtinen said she was writing the note because her committee was increasingly concerned that “the illicit drug trade and the presence of drug cartels may shift towards the Dominican Republic.’’

======================================

BACKSTORY Over the years, the wealthy Melgen has registered a high profile. The doctor has asked various members of Congress over the years for help with (1) one of his many lawsuits, (2) his port security deal, (3) Medicare charges, and, (4) multi-million dollar tax issues against him.

For the tax issue, a consulting company wrote Menendez and four Florida lawmakers on Melgen’s behalf after the November election. Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s interests as Committee on Foreign Affairs chair also dovetailed with the business interests of Melgen, who has crusaded for the Dominican Republic port-security contract to X-ray cargo.

NOTE: Contrary to his website and professional resume, big-name institutions including Harvard, Yale and the Univ of Missouri say they have no record of professional or educational history w/ Melgen.

Melgen is under two separate federal investigations for Medicare fraud and a political scandal involving a Democratic senator, according to a report by the Washington Free Beacon.

Dr. Melgen's biography (pdf link at web site) on his website claims he graduated from Harvard, was chief resident of ophthalmology at the Univ of Missouri, and held a Yale internship, but all three denied any record to support his credentials, according to the report.

Dr. Melgen, an active fundraiser for the Democratic Party, is under fire after it was discovered that he and US Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), improperly reported frequent trips to the Dominican Republic, and allegedly hired underage Dominican prostitutes for sex parties. © Copyright ASC COMMUNICATIONS 2012.

My favorite teacher, ever, growing up in Queens, was my high school chemistry teacher, a Cuban emigre, a Marist Brother and a Ph.D. from the Sorbonne. Castro wanted him dead.

Years later, my Jewish girl friend’s mother, who worked in a medical practice in Rego Park, Queens, recommended a doctor to me from this mostly Jewish practice. This Jewish mother recommended a Cuban doctor, also an emigre. Turns out, he knew my chemistry teacher. And he is also my favorite doctor ever. So, my favorite doctor and my favorite teacher are both Cuban emigres. I would thank Castro, but some wonderful people that I like had their lives needlessly disrupted, and think of all the ones that didn’t make it out.

Also think of all the good the people that Castro drove out could have done for the Cuban people. What waste, what a shame.

I don’t think it was coincidence that our military and DHS were conducting night exercises a few weeks ago in downtown Miami. South Florida is a hotbed of anti-communist, sovereign citizens.

“A month after Melgen contributed $5,000 to Ros-Lehtinen”

This price is too cheap. He was going to give her cash or a large deposit in a Carbibaan bank if he got this deal

>> What are the hispanic words for FU ?

Grew up in Miami; never have heard it used. How about:
Con-yo su madre. (”Your mother is a c-nt”) or
Hijo de puta. (”Son of a whore”) Either may work just as well.

I’ve always wanted to whip up my own Che t-shirt with the following subscript:
“La mayoria del tiempo se encuentra la mierda del perro en los zapatos. A veces se la encuentra en un t-shirt.” (The majority of the time you find dog poop on your shoes. Occasionally you find it on a t-shirt.)

Well, at least 37% of Hispanics did...

Cubans, though, did provide majority support to Reagan.
