Castro’s most active U.S.-based public relations agency at the moment (The Atlantic Council) was horrified by the horrors of Apartheid :
“the brutality and inhumanity of a system (Apartheid) that is slowly fading from Western memories, it is impossible to understand the enormity of Mandela’s achievements, his strength of character and the caliber of his statesmanship. Mandela had every right to be angry given what apartheid had done to him and to the majority of South Africans.”
The firm conducting the Stalinist Castro-regime’s most current public relations campaign in the U.S. was also appalled by the refusal of the U.S. to apply economic sanctions against a segregationist regime.
The Africa “expert” for the U.S.-based public relations firm that is hustling hardest for their client (the Castro regime) at the moment is a proud recipient of the “Nelson Mandela International Prize for African Security and Development.” This “expert” can be seen and heard here denouncing the U.S. for being on “the wrong side of history” for “not supporting democracy in South Africa.” (this dereliction manifested itself prior to the passage of the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Bill. So presumably we were derelict by not imposing economic sanctions on the Apartheid regime.)
For the five billionth time here’s a thumbnail comparison of Apartheid repression vs Castroite repression:
According to Anti-Apartheid activists a grand total of 3,000 political prisoners passed through South Africa’s Robben Island prison in roughly 30 years under the Apartheid regime. Usually about a thousand were held. These were out of a South African population of 40 million.
According to the Human Rights group, Freedom House, a grand total of 500,000 political prisoners have passed through Castro’s various prisons and forced labor camps At one time in 1961, some 300,000 Cubans were jailed for political offenses (in torture chambers and forced-labor camps designed by Stalin’s disciples, not like the country-club cell Mandela spent half his sentence in)This was out of a Cuban population in 1960 of 6.4 million.
