A great FrontPage Mag interview with our very own Humberto “El Cirujano” Fontova on that darling of the media che and the MSM’s love affair will all things fidel. It starts like this:
The 50 year blizzard of BS in the MSM and Academia about Castro/Che and their “ideals” and “accomplishment” etc. simply drove me to mount a counterattack, in whatever modest capacity I could manage. We’re talking about a regime that jailed more political prisoners (as a percentage of population) than Stalin’s and for twice as long; that murdered more people (in absolute numbers) during its first three years in power than Hitler’s regime murdered in it’s first six; that drove out 20 percent of the population from a nation formerly inundated with immigrants.
Then I’m supposed to sit by placidly while constantly hearing my parent’s generation, (middle class folks much like the readers of this magazine) who fought that regime, who include the longest-suffering political prisoners in modern history, who lost everything they’d worked for, who sacrificed all to see their children grow up free–I’m supposed to acquiesce in slanders against them as “gangsters, filthy-rich scoundrels,” among other choice descriptions by the international left–and Michael Moore in particular?
Well, I’m not about to put up with it.
…and it gets better from there. Bravo, Humberto.
