Quote of the Day – Nat Hentoff: ‘Were I Cuban… I’d be targeted as a counterrevolutionary’

The late Nat Hentoff in a column from 2008:

nat-hentoff

“Were I Cuban, I suppose I’d be targeted as a counterrevolutionary for having asked Che Guevara — the only time I met him at the Cuban Mission to the United Nations — whether he could possibly envision eventual free elections in Cuba. Although he professed not to understand English, Che — still lionized on T-shirts in this country — didn’t wait for the translator and burst into laughter. It was then I learned that laughter can be chilling.”

  1. So the asthmatic Argentine asshole laughed at the prospect of free elections in Cuba, the free elections that Fidel had repeatedly promised all along–until he was in power and in control. Bastards, both of them.
