Diana Nyad Desecrates 50,000 Graves
Was Charles Lindbergh’s flight across the Atlantic a lesser feat than Nyad’s swim? Many would say it was a greater one. But Lindbergh very briefly dallied with a totalitarian regime (Nazi Germany before the war and before the Holocaust.) Came the war and Lindbergh volunteered for combat against America’s Axis enemies and flew 50 combat missions in the Pacific.
No matter. That brief dalliance forever contaminated him in view of the establishment. The title of the PBS special on his life summed it up: “Lindbergh; Fallen Hero.”
But today the establishment focuses exclusively on Nyad’s (genuinely praiseworthy) swim. Her long and warm and public romance with the murderous and war-mongering totalitarian regime that facilitated her swim and used it for propaganda purposes matters not a wit, except to those dependably contrarian and buzz-killing Cuban-Americans.
