Here’s Fidel Castro in Nov. 1955 at 303 Flagler Street, Miami, Florida, drumming up money (mostly for bombs and bullets).
“No Dialogue! with the dictatorship!” he thundered.
“Anyone who even contemplates dialogue with the (Batista) dictatorship is a despicable traitor!”
Only an embargo!, and bombs! and violence will rid Cuba of the dictatorship!
“Dialogue is impossible!!!”
And the lily-white, wealthy crowd of Miami Cubans absolutely ATE IT UP!–thunderous standing ovations! Roars of support! etc!
Oddly..??? The MSM of the time DID NOT denounce these folks as “crackpots“? Or “intransigents“?? or “hard-liners?” Hummmm????
(needless to say, 98 per cent of them were back in Miami 5 years later, just ahead of firing squads)
