The guy in the blue shirt with glasses in the photo below is Brian Becker, National Director of ANSWER Coalition, at the NYC illegal immigration protest this week. The guy on the flag to his right above him is none other than Che Guevara, the mass murdering butcher of La Cabaña and a man instrumental in the destruction of Cuba, her people, her culture, her history, and the separation of millions of Cuban families.
I’m absolutely certain Mr. Becker knows exactly who Che Guevara was and I am absolutely certain he’s not the only one so learned in that crowd. I’ll also note that on ANSWER’s website (I refuse to link to it) there are calls for the extradition of Posada Carriles to Venezuela and for the lifting of the US embargo on Cuba with no mention whatsoever of the dismal human rights record of the island’s government. There are also numerous Che tshirts you could buy on that site and again, no mention whatsoever that Che Guevara urged the use of Soviet nuclear weapons against the United States of America.
As an American I am insulted. As a Cuban I am disgusted. And there is absolutely no way in hell that I , in good conscience, could support a cause that so blatantly espouses such anti-Americanism.
No way in hell.
Oh, and one more thing. Find me a Cuban flag on that ANSWER poster in that picture that reads “Full rights for ALL Immigrants.”
