CODE-PINKO Strikes Again

People such as Medea Benjamin really disgust me.
The founder and co-director of CODEPINK is at it again, rallying her troops (Heh Heh) in Miami for a double bill: protesting the Iraq War and the “freedom” of Luis Posada Carriles.
From the El Nuevo Herald article translated into English:

Anti-castro militant Luis Posada Carriles will be the target of national anti-terrorism campaign which kicks off next Saturday and organized by a women’s organization opposed to the Iraq War.
The Most Wanted campaign is being promoted by CODEPINK, a coalition with more than 150,000 members which calls itself “the most active pacifist group in the country”.

CODEPINK and Benjamin’s goal: to have Posada placed on the list of most wanted criminals and terrorists.
Quote from Benjamin:

“It’s inexplicable that the government is on the hunt for terrorists hiding thousands of miles away, when they have one of the most noted terrorists living freely in Miami.”

Cuba Journal is on board with CODEPINK. Figures.
This isn’t all. On Monday (after a nice weekend sipping mojitos on SoBe), they’ll be picketing another “sister”, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
It’s not her view of Posada as a terrorist that bothers me. It’s just the blatant hypocrisy she and others like her display on a regular basis.
You think CODEPINK is a pacifist group? Why then haven’t you heard of them demonstrating in favor of the Ladies in White? Where were they when castro’s goons sunk the 13 de Marzo tugboat, or shot down the Brothers to the Rescue flights, as Posada lawyer Arturo Hernandez rightly points out in the article?
It’s quite easy to explain. Medea Benjamin loves Cuba, especially those in charge of the gulag. Her love of leftist Latin dictators doesn’t end with the bearded bastard, however.
Medea hearts hugo, too.
By the way Ms. Benjamin: I’m still waiting for your reply to the two letters I wrote to your august organization.
With pacifists like Susan “Medea” Benjamin, who needs warmongers?

  1. Havana Journal, no need to take our word that there are tyrants ruling Cuba. International Human Rights organizations such as Amnesty International, Human Rights Foundation, Reporters Without Borders, Genocide Watch, etc., have all condemned the Castro dictatorship. The mass executions, concentration camps, and imprisonments are well documented, so for you come here and blow your horn is an insult to the regimes victims. You are not welcome.

  2. Hey Cubajournal, I think George Bush can still win you over. I think all Bush has to do is emulate everything the tYrant in Cuba has done to stay in power for 50 FREAKING years, and then Bush may win your heart. But unfortunately for you, the US is a real liberal democracy, so it is impossible for one guy to stay in power for 50 YEARS like the tYrant in shithole Cuba that you so admire.

  3. i saw Medea in Polos opuestos, and when asked her opinion on cuba, she said they are only interested on this country issues, well, how bout the most wanted fugitives that Castro is hiding and helping in cuba. there’s a bunch of them.

  4. CubaJournal,
    I would like to ask you something. Out of curiosity, I checked your profile (your blog). Please explain to me how someone who’s Cuban and lists “Hasta Siempre Comandante Che Guevara” among his favorite music and then Fidel Castro: “History Will Absolve Me”; and Ramonet’s “Fidel Castro Biografia A Dos Voces”, among his favorite books (Please note that I used the capital “C” since that still does not take aways the crimes and oppression committed by the self-serving despot and tyrant named Castro!) would rather reside in the “confrontational USA” and not in Cuba?
    Then, I thought of a western and generally “Capitalistic” concept: The “expratiates”. Expats are sent abroad for a period of time to work on behalf of their company. Could it be possible that the socialist & communist regime in Cuba is your company?
    You clearly have an agenda (Se cae de la mata) and a definite reason to eliminate the embargo. I fully support the present US-Cuba Policy, however, I understand why some Cuban Americans want to lift the embargo, but as the saying goes … a veces pagan justos por pecadores … and I feel sorry for “los justos” … not for you!!! Pa’ la porra!!
    🙂 MELEK
    “Of all forms of government and society, those of free men and women are in many respects the most brittle. They give the fullest freedom for activities of private persons and groups who often identify their own interests, essentially selfish, with the general welfare.” – D. Thompson

  5. Good question Melek. I could never envision mysef residing in either the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Musolini’s Italy, North Korea, Vietnam, Pol Pot’s Cambodia or any other turd hole governed by some despot megolomeniac. Yet this guy decides to live here in the good ol’ US of A
    I think you answered the question yourself.
    He is working here on behalf of Castro, Inc.

  6. That and he can enjoy all the freedoms and liberty this country has to offer, while at the same time advocating tyranny for the people of Cuba. Btw, I know it is megalomaniac. lol 😉

  7. cubajournal:
    Speaking for myself, I don’t capitalize the name of fidel castro because I have no respect for the man. As I have no respect for raul, che, chavez, or ortega.
    It also makes me feel good, that by not doing so, it pisses off asholes like you!
