Recent National Medal of Arts Winner (and Democrat) Linda Ronstadt Denounces Miami Cubans as “Closed-Minded Propagandists!”
"There should not be a question of legal or illegal immigration. People came and immigrated to this country from the time of the Indians. No one's illegal. They should just be able to come. We allow Cubans to come in and say that they're refugees. Well, in Cuba — I've been there, you know — people are fed, people are housed, people are clothed. There isn't violence in the streets...you have this Mexican-American thing which is this third culture, which I like to call Aztlán...and that's kind of where I've found myself for the last 20 years. It's an Aztec word; it means northern...So I think of myself as a girl from the Sonoran Desert, and my culture is the culture of Aztlán."
Cuba is an amazing country. I’ve been all over Latin America. And it’s the only Latin American country I’ve been in that didn’t have armed troops on the street, there weren’t homeless people everywhere, and kids had school uniforms and had schoolbooks paid for and had their health paid for. There’s things going on in Cuba that we don’t know about, and that’s mainly because of the Miami Cubans, they just absolutely won’t – they are absolutely closed-minded. They hate Fidel Castro, they won’t even hear about some of the good things he’s done, and they don’t want anyone else to know about it, either. It’s a total propaganda device and they’ve blanketed this country with propaganda about Cuba, huge amounts of which are untrue."
