Gorby in Miami on Cuba

It didn’t get the same attention, nor was it anywhere near the level of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech at Columbia University last week. Nevertheless, yesterday Mikhail Gorbachev spoke to students and teachers at Ransom Everglades School in Miami.
Here’s some of what he had to say:

”The way to go is to try to end the confrontation.”
“Americans should not seek revenge toward Cuba.”

Afterwards, he held a news conference in which he made the following statements regarding Cuba and fidel:

Cuba’s healthcare and education systems are great achievements, Gorbachev said in a press conference after his speech to students. Americans should not ”demonize” Castro, he added. “He is a person and a capable leader.”
One more thing:
“And I think Cubans outside should take the right attitude. They should seek ways of cooperation.”

OK. Have any ideas on how to “cooperate”, Mr. Gorbachev? Nyet, didn’t think so.

  1. We don’t have to demonize fifo. He’s done it himself. And who wants revenge against Cuba? The mafia running it, okay. Gimme a break!

  2. Man if he came to any Miami Dade College everyone would boo the hell out of him, and kick the motherf*cking commie
    “Mr. Gorbachev, get the f*ck out of the USA, let alone Miami.”

  3. One would think that having played a major part in the end of communism in Russia, Gorbachev would understand the inherent evils of Stalinism in Cuba. Apparently, someone never learned from HIS OWN history. Unbelievable.

  4. I suppose it would be more elegant to simply ignore this fatuous has-been who, like Al Gore and Jimmy Carter, simply can’t fade away gracefully. I know his relevance now is zero, and that he’s essentially an old fart trying to hang on to the limelight, but for him to say these things, especially in Miami, is way beyond rich. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was brought here expressly and deliberately to offend the Cuban exile community by people who can’t stomach said community.
    I’ll say this for the guy, he has incredible gall and a complete lack of class. He’s also an outright liar, or a certifiable idiot, if he can bring himself to call Castro a “capable leader.” Americans may or may not seek revenge against Cuba, but Cubans have every right to seek revenge against Russia, especially those like Gorbachev who were in positions of power. That red splotch on his head is a symbol of the rivers of blood, suffering and destruction on the head of the monstrous system he once led.
    As for his “advice” to Cubans outside the island, well, I don’t want to get too worked up over such monumental and downright obscene presumptuousness. The guy is now a nothing, and his prononcements mean no more than those of a schizophrenic homeless person. However, if he’s interested in my attitude, it’s this:
    There, that feels much better.
