Ideas?

La Batalla de las Ideas. The Battle of Ideas. That’s what all the fidelistas claim they and the revolution are victorious in.

Look at this picture of Guillermo Fariñas and you tell me if “ideas” did that to his face::

Marc has more on the beating Guillermo Fariñas took for being on the “wrong” side of the revolution’s ideological battle.

  1. Apologies for being off topic, but I just saw on Fausta’s blog that there appears to be an outbreak of dengue fever in Santiago de Cuba.

    “There is a general state of alarm in the province because there is a shortage of milk for children. They have spent two months drinking tea, sugar water, and anything else that happens to come along.

    There is not enough money, meat is nowhere to be found, and the situation is worsening because the dengue fever epidemic continues to spread. Additionally, the potable water situation is critical. There are neighborhoods that have spent six months without any. All this before the backdrop of Santiago’s broken streets and septic tanks that contaminate the environment.”

    Again, apologies for the off topic post.

  2. I wonder what the “Pastors for Peace,” dear Congressman Rangel and his delightful colleague Ms. Waters, not to mention a slew of others (like the Congressional Black Caucus) would make of this. Actually, I don’t wonder at all. They’d make the same of it as they have of the horrendous plight of Dr. Biscet, another extremely brave black man rotting in a hellhole of a Cuban jail for opposing the designs of the Plantation-Owner-in-Chief. In other words, “see no evil, hear no evil, tell no evil.”
