I am listening to Secretary of State John Kerry’s poor pronunciation in Spanish as he addresses the Cuban people in Havana during the opening of the American Embassy in the communist island prison. A Cuban woman stands in the crowd wearing a red Che Guevara tee shirt and waves a Cuban flag.
In case you don’t know, Che Guevara was a blood-thirsty communist responsible for ordering the execution of thousands of innocent Cubans during the beginning of Castro’s takeover of the island. The dissemination and glamorizing of his image on everything from coffee mugs to tee shirts is one of the most evil and deceitful communist marketing ploys of modern times.
Barack Obama and his troupe of socialist operatives have managed to not only humiliate the United States in the eyes of history– but are also attempting to erase Castro’s murderous communist history of more than half a century.
As John Kerry stands with the beautiful azure Caribbean Sea in the background I ask myself how he can ignore the Cuban people who are behind prison bars for peacefully expressing their views about Castro’s tyrannical government. I ask myself, how he can stand there and ignore that a few hours ago the Cuban government did another ruthless roundup of peaceful political dissenters.
Now Kerry is speaking about lifting the embargo, which he explained only the U.S. Congress can lift– a step which the Obama administration strongly favors. Ah yes, the U.S. Embargo against Cuba’s Communist regime– which exists only on paper– because the amount of goods and aid that the U.S. provides Cuba each year is breathtaking.
The entire world does business with Cuba. The entire world! So the truth is that Cuba has had an incredible flow of commerce which has ended in the hands of the communist military government– and is used to line the pockets of military and government officials– while oppressing and starving the people of Cuba.
Kerry thanked those who brought about this diplomatic abomination– most notably Barack Obama, Raul Castro and “the Holy Father.”
Isn’t it interesting that socialists love Pope Francis? But of course, Francis’s narrative has been rich in laudable statements for Marxists, Sustainable Development (U.N. International socialism), climate change– in other words, Pope Francis is crowning the socialist modernism that Vatican II envisioned.
Meanwhile, Castro’s government remains defiant as a communist nation– going as far as to state that the United States owes Cuba millions of dollars! Imagine that, a communist government which stole and confiscated private property– and destroyed the Cuban economy along with the hard-work and livelihood of thousands of Cubans– is now demanding money from Americans!
Kerry quoted José Martí (Cuba’s most famous national hero and a prominent literary figure in the Spanish language) with the words, “everything that divides men is a sin against humanity.”
Indeed the division between Cuba and the rest of humanity runs deep. The deaths of thousands of Cubans whose bodies lie in the watery graves of the Strait of Florida are silent witnesses of this division– along with those who have been imprisoned, tortured, executed and thrown into unmarked graves, like members of my family.
Yes, the communist sin against humanity continues in Cuba. I was born and raised under Castro’s tyranny– and I will not cease to denounce the diplomatic abomination that has taken place today.
I urge my readers to do the same.
It’s time to lift the fog… someone has to say the truth.
