Hispanically (or Obliviously) Speaking News

Hispanically Speaking News, a news service obviously aimed at Hispanics, is upset that Juana Bautista de la Candelaria Rodríguez, a Cuban lady who allegedly just turned 126 years of age, is not getting the recognition she deserves from the proper authorities. She is being billed as the world’s oldest person, but Gerentology Research Group, the company that verifies such records for the Guiness Book of World Records, says that the birth records provided by the Castro regime are not good enough to verify that claim. This is no doubt due to the fact that the Cuban dictatorship is well known for fabricating records, statistics, and any other information it needs to show itself in a good light.

Hispanically Speaking News would have none of that however, and they promptly consulted a source as unreliable as the Castro regime: Wikipedia.

Wikipedia based research shows that the United States claim to have several of the eldest people in the world. Cuba is nowhere to be seen. Wonder why…

Let’s look beyond what looks like skewed data. Surely, for a country that claims to have a bunch of the oldest people EVER within its bounds,one should expect its life expectancy should be fairly high, right?

Wrong! The US is not even within the first 20 spots! Again, Cuba is nowhere to be seen, but that’s because Cuba isn’t recognized by the Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group, which verifies information for Guinness World Records. It is estimated that at least 1500 of the 11,2 million Cubans is over the age of 100 years old!

But…The Los Angeles-based group says Cuba’s records are not good enough.

This exercise in futility and the fatuous logic employed by Hispanically Speaking News in where they cite faulty data in order to verify more faulty data is best exemplified by the article’s closing statement:

Juana Bautista de la Candelaria Rodríguez was allegedly born on February 2 1885 to parents who also saw the hundredths. She is a proud Cuban, born and raised in the province of Granma . Enough said.

If Juana Bautista de la Candelaria Rodriguez was born in 1885, there is no way on God’s green earth she could have been born in the province of Granma since that province did not exist in 1885. The Granma province is a fabrication of Fidel Castro, created after the revolution (1959) to commemorate the name of the ship he and his band of thugs used to land in Cuba in 1956. Hispanically Speaking News, it seems, is as oblivious to this fact as they are oblivious to the Castro regime’s antics. They appear to be even more oblivious than Wikipedia, who actually gets this fact straight.

If Hispanically Speaking News wants to be taken seriously, first they need to stop consulting Wikipedia, and then they need to pick up a history book and do a little reading.

  1. Naturally, these “Hispanic” entities [news agencies, organizations, groups, etc..] get all bent out of shape if they perceive unfairness against the 51-year long tyranny, but, they don’t care a rat’s ass if the exile community is attacked. In fact, they lead the way!
