Over 400 Cuban boys murdered by firing squad this week in 1962

fuego-400x292aaaaxdfted

It's known (within a few diminutive enclaves in Miami-Dade) as La Matanza de Santa Rosa de Lima.

Bill O’Reilly: He (Fidel Castro) has murdered people. He's imprisoned people… he's a killer. He's a killer. And you admire the guy?”

Ted Turner: “To my knowledge, that's never been proven… I admire certain things about him. He's trained a lot of doctors...

"During the 1980s, one could still conceivably argue that Cuba's dictatorship was preferable to its US-backed counterparts in Chile, Argentina, Nicaragua or El Salvador, which went one step farther by murdering thousands of their citizens." (London Sunday Times, August 2006)

(H/T to our friend Patsy Feliciano whose freedom-fighting Dad narrowly escaped death during the massacre.)

    The ridiculous affectation of constantly wearing military fatigues regardless of setting or context, especially when the wearer was NEVER real military, should have been treated with merciless satire and disdain, yet the Maximum Poseur was never called on it. Imagine that.

    And to my knowledge, Castro has never trained any doctors!

    It's a waste to engage someone like Turner on something like Fidel. He may not be quite as braindead as Santana on Che, but close enough, at least for a non-Latrine. To these people, as long as you're PC, you're golden--no matter how ignorant, moronic, delusional or disingenuous you may be. That's why they say and do outrageous things so often, because they feel totally safe in their PC armor, and the fact is they can get away with all kinds of shit. Frankly, arguing with Turner over Castro is like arguing with Mike Tyson over his Che tattoo, in the sense that there's no there there--they're both cretins.
