The “Hidden Cuba?” says The London Observer.

“A hunger striker exposes Cuba’s hidden side,” reads the Observer headline.

OK,fine, London Observer. But just WHO helped “HIDE” so much of Castroism for lo these many decades?

Might it have been you very Castro courtesans of the MSM?

“…in protest at repression that has derailed hopes of greater tolerance on the communist island,” continues the article.

OK, fine, London Observer. But whose “hopes,” do you refer to? Certainly not the hopes of the blockheaded intransigents you fine folks in concert with Castro have been bashing for fifty years. They, you might recall, repeatedly scoffed at such “hopes.”

Ah! ….You must be refering to the “hopes” of all those “Cuba Experts” habitually quoted by the London Observer!

Amigos, I give you the opening paragraph from a story by this very London Observer dated Jan. 9th 1959:

“Mr Castro’s bearded, youthful figure has become a symbol of Latin America’s rejection of brutality and lying. Every sign is that he will reject personal rule and violence.”

That very night, just below San Juan Hill in eastern Cuba, a bulldozer rumbled to a start, clanked into position, and started pushing dirt into a huge pit with blood pooling at the bottom from the still -twitching bodies of more than a hundred men and boys who’d been machine-gunned without trial on Raul Castro’s orders. The victims mothers, sisters, aunts, etc. wept hysterically from a nearby road.

The London Observer did not see fit to report this incident.

  1. London Observer: Poppycock! You sour fellows are just spreading hearsay, hearsay and more hearsay? We swear to the mighty sword, Excalibur, you Cuban worms are disgusting more and more by the minute. Good day, sir!

    I’m just kidding-I love Excalibur and the Arthurian legends.

  2. I’ve been in many countries run by tyrannical dictatorships, communist, fascist, and military. Very little is “hidden”. You can either choose to see it, or choose to ignore it. People in these countries will gladly tell you all about it, if you lend them an ear. The British press has had its blinders on for 50 years and consequently the British people know little about it. It’s just another poor, sunny isle oppressed by the Yanks.

    I hope that when Cuba has a freely elected government they will start refusing visas to the Brits, Canadians, and others who have supported the “hidden” Cuba with their dollars, pounds, and euros all these years.

  3. Awww, c’mon, lighten up. Every feller needs a friend, and what kinder friend to castro and his little psycho-pal che than the American and UK press of the 50s and 60s?

    Why, without the pressniks to promote them, isn’t it likely castro & che would either have been locked up permanently subsequent to the bogotazo riots, or more likely just faded into derelict obscurity, perhaps by drowning in some inner city gutter puddle swirling with beer vomit, wine urine, and hubris.

  4. Hidden huh?
    Yeah, reminds me of what my mother used to say: “No hay peor ciego que el que no quiere ver”

    Translation: There’s no worse blind person than he who does not wish to see.

  5. Speaking of Bogotazo, since the State Dept. knew of fidels involvement there, why didn’t they use that information a decade later?

    Sorry for being so intransigent, and worrying about commies in the State Dept. Like that never could happen right?

  6. Excellent observation Humberto. What hidden side? Let’s suspend belief and rational thinking for an instant, and assume for arguments sake that the regime was doing a dandy job hiding the widespread repression, journalists have access to contacts and resources that the average person does not. There is no excuse for a well-trained journalists not to be able to uncover the truth. Yet, with Cuba these cynical, seasoned journalists become little naifs.
