The executioner’s image in Serrano’s office: Just a game?

Last week a group of Cubans visited Congress, including a walk through the offices of Representative Jose E. Serrano. Imagine their reaction when they discovered photos of both President Obama and a certain Argentine icon.

In Spanish from Jorge Ferrer:

La semana pasada un grupo de cubanos se paseó por las oficinas de los representantes en Washington llevando su verdad sobre Cuba. Teresa Cruz escribió una nota sobre el acontecimiento que publiqué aquí.

Ese mismo día, mientras visitaban las oficinas del Congreso, tuvieron ocasión de encontrarse allí con Barack Obama y Ernesto Guevara, llamado «Che». Juntos los dos y enmarcaditos por Korda. Sí, sí, en el Congreso de los Estados Unidos de América.

Fue en la antecámara que da acceso al despacho de José E. Serrano, Representante por el Distrito 16 –el Bronx- de origen puertorriqueño.

Allí, los dos: Obama y «el Che».

«Eso es una ofensa al presidente», le dijo el ex-preso político cubano Israel Abreu a la muchacha que cuida el acceso a la oficina del Representante José E. Serrano.

«No, señor. Esto es sólo un juego», fue la respuesta.

«¡Esto es sólo un juego!»

Una respuesta que demuestra un conocimiento tan profundo de la esencia de la política, de la política hacia Cuba, del terrorismo de izquierdas, que no me queda otra que quitarme el sombrero.

¡Esa muchacha llegará más lejos que su jefe!

    WOW. Serrano is a true idiot! Does he really think all Cubans hold The Executioner highly?

    Somehow I'm not surprised.

  • I am not surprised by Serrano's display, but it frightens and saddens me to see those who hate the US in such a position no longer hiding behind a even the facade of democracy. I no longer recognize our government. Jerome, Serrano is a fidelista who shares his contempt for the people of Cuba.

    Ziva I fully understand your pain,

    Unfortunately this situation will continue until something so painful happens to America, that the people will finally open their eyes and vote most of these individuals out of office.

    We know where America is heading today. Unfortunately many Americans don't and cannot comprehend the fact that many of America's enemies today are part of the it's own government.

    All we can do is watch these events unfold and pray a lot that the people come to their senses.
