Wall Street Journal held luncheon in Fidel Castro’s honor
The Wall Street Journal gloated when New York's Best and Brightest unanimously snubbed Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on his two visits. But when Fidel Castro visited in 1996 the WSJ itself held a luncheon in the Cuban "President's" honor.
"Mahmoud you sorry chump!...your quip about wiping Israel off the map (with your non-existent Nuclear weapons) got you treated like a cockroach in New York, snubbed, insulted, etc. But I'm on the record for asking, beseeching and finally trying to trick Nikita Khruschev into wiping New York of the map with ACTUAL Nuclear weapons that were within inches of my fingers. And look what I get upon my New York visits! And by the Wall Street Journal--no less! Come by for a chat, amigo--and I'll clue you in on these matters."
"Hay Caramba!, Fidel! I coulda had a V-8--and taken your advice!"
(recap: German Industrialists, Irish politicians, Brazilian models, rockers, movie stars, etc.--who probably don't have the slightest clue what happened in Cuba 50 years ago--mention Che and we're all over 'em. Some lunatics go so far as to write entire books denouncing the phenomenon. Gloria Estefan holds a dinner for the president of the U.S. and many of us are all over her. Yet the man who gave Che every order for every murder get's a luncheon in his honor by the Wall Street Journal (and surely his ultra-educated WSJ hosts knew full-well what happened in Cuba.)..So where's the outrage?...Absolutely Un-'Freakin-Real!)
