When “those blockheaded Cuban-exile hard-liners(!!!)” tried warning “The Best and Brightest” of the greatest military threat in U.S. history

(These missiles are) "nothing but refugee rumors. Nothing in Cuba presents a threat to the United States. There's no likelihood that the Soviets or Cubans would try and install an offensive capability in Cuba." (a sneering National Security Advisor, McGeorge Bundy, on ABC's Issues and Answers, October 14, 1962.) "There's fifty-odd-thousand Cuban refugees in this […]

Cuba boasts the largest hotel chains in Latin America

(Shareholders annual meeting) "Don't you hard-lining blockheads realize that opening Cuba to tourism will sweep away Cuban Communism?" According to the top source on the matter (Hotels Magazine) Cuba's military-owned hotel chains--Cuba Gaviota, Grupo Cubanacan and, Grupo Hotelero Gran Caribe--nowadays comprise the largest hotel chains in Latin America, topping anything in Mexico. (they've held this […]

Words of great wisdom from Norman “Those ruly repellent Miami Cubans” Birnbaum

Back in 2006 our Ziva called our attention to an eminent scholar and Democratic party consultant (he "advised" the JFK, Carter, Ted Kennedy and Jesse Jackson campaigns) named Norman Birnbaum (seen in recent pic top left) who wore his anti-Cuban exile bigotry on his very shirtsleeves, not unlike Michael Moore: "We have not attacked Castro […]

Michael Moore vs Senator Pat Geary (regarding sleazy foreigners)

“Cuban exiles are responsible for sleaze in American politics. In every incident of national torment that has deflated our country for the past three decades…Cuban exiles are always present and involved.” (Michael Moore, Downsize This) “I don’t like your people. I don’t like to see you come out to this clean country in your oily […]

Ethnic politics–Herbert Hoover and Jack Woltz vs William LeoGrande

“Go back to Italy where you belong and advise Mussolini on how to make good honest citizens. Italians are predominantly our murderers and bootleggers…you Italians are foreign spawn who do not appreciate the country that supports and tolerates you.” (Republican President Herbert Hoover to Republican congressman of New York Fiorello La Guardia 1930.) Those were […]

BEAM ME UP SCOTTY!!! (New York Times editorial, Think-Tanks and the Cuba “Embargo”)

The New York Times runs an editorial denouncing the so-called U.S. embargo of Cuba as "counterproductive" (i.e. "Castro's best friend...because it gives him an excuse for his economic failures blah..blah..")--yet quickly runs another editorial boasting that Fidel Castro endorsed and reprinted the first one! The New York Times also boasts that Fidel Castro compared their […]

So what’s wrong with Che Guevara as a hero and icon among Lateeenos?

An art display of Latino Heroes and Icons in New Haven city hall features the famous picture of Che Guevara, which was mildly vandalized recently. The art display is the handiwork of a non-profit art-promotion outfit named ARTE Inc. From their mission statement: "Arte is dedicated to promoting Latino art, culture and education. Arte is […]

Che’s “New Men” at work in New Haven, Ct (Che Guevara iconography at New Haven City Hall was designed by Cubans–from Miami!)

A picture of Che Guevara in a New Haven city hall art display was recently vandalized. ("Asesino" was scribbled in the corner, top left.) The Che pic was part of a Latino "Heroes and Icons" art display by the Latino non-profit art promotion group Arte inc. I'm guessing the culprit is a Cuban-American--but stick with […]

Walter Russell Mead’s “Fatal Attraction” to Fidel Castro

Walter Russell Mead (seen above)  has been among the Longest Wrongest with his Cuba "Expertise." To wit: Back in 2000 one of the Council on Foreign Relations useful idiots (Walter Russell Mead) closely collaborated with the Council on Foreign Relations resident Cuban agent-of-influence (Julia Sweig) in a "CFR task-force" report titled, "U.S.-Cuban Relations in the […]

Columbia University faculty and administrators react to tomorrow’s “No More Che Day” speech sponsored by YAF and College Republicans.

"Leave Che and Castro ALONE!!!--WE MEAN IT!" (signed, Columbia University faculty and administrators) Above Columbia University faculty and administrators react to tomorrow night's speech (Pupin 214 at 8PM on Thursday Oct. 9th) sponsored by YAF and College Republicans. "Can't WAIT!!!"....DEY SWARM!!!!!!

“Now you don’t talk so loud..now you don’t seem so proud” (A sniveling Che Guevara captured on this day 1967)

"Don't Shoot!..I'm Che I'm worth more to you alive than dead!" Full details of his whimpering, sniveling capture here.

“Was it over when Che Guevara tried to blow up half of Manhattan?!”

"Hell NO!..Instead the very Manhattanite beautiful people Che tried (twice) to incinerate by the thousands invited Che Guevara to Bobo Rockeffler's ultra-chic Manhattan bungalow for a star-studded party where they lined up for his autograph!!! "WHO's with me?!...Let's to to Columbia University's (Pupin 214 at 8PM on Thursday Oct. 9th) and learn MUCH more of […]

U.S. hostages and their uses by “scholarly experts”…

Top right: Cuba "expert" Peter Kornbluh with U.S. hostage held by Castro-regime Alan Gross. No-- obviously Kornbluh wont behead Gross. But his goals on behalf of the terror-sponsoring Castro-regime are very similar to those of the terrorists who pose with U.S. hostages on behalf of ISIS. (i.e. give us what we want, U.S.--or this guy […]

YAF (Young Amerca’s Foundation) Educating about the real Cuba (sin botellita) i.e. genuinely shaking up the educational “establishment.”

"Great! Of course we'll host her!" All of the above events were partly on the dime of the U.S. taxpayer. And blessed by college authorities (i.e. "the establishment"...i.e. Dean Wormer) These are NOT on the U.S. taxpayers dime. Indeed they greatly annoy college faculties/adminstrations (which was traditionally among a healthy college student's favorite pastimes.) Furthermore, […]

FoxNews also helps promote the YAF’s “No More Che Day”

Column here. BTW: Not a single Cuban-American organization or website (except us, of course) has mentioned it and no Miami area college has signed on...and yet Cuban-Americans love to whine and throw little tantrums whenever Che iconography shows up anywhere...because--of course-!-the BEST way to educate America about Che is to snarl about him (exclusively in […]
