Amazing what a jabita gets you in Cuba

It is amazing what a jabita (a bag) filled with some beans and toothpaste will get some Cubans to do. The members of this mob carrying out this act of repudiation against the Ladies in White were all brought to the scene by the Castro regime in buses. They were given specific instructions, some propaganda signs, and for their trouble they were given a jabita. That is it.

  1. This proves what making the masses ignorant will bring about. I really see no hope for Cuba’s freedom. There are too many ignorant animals that believe the lies that castro inc. tells them. They want to protect their poverty as they think that it will be worse for them without their teat. This is much the same for America and the liberals.
    When you look at these animals they can never be trusted. They have sold their very souls for a javita. In order for someone to want freedom, someone has to appreciate freedom. They also must posess some semblance of character. They will someday rot in hell. May they rot in Cuba as well.

  2. Pototo:

    Allow me to repeat the same comment I made on a previous post of mine on the topic of jabitas:

    “There are 11-million people in Cuba. The issue isn’t just the Cubans who are purchased with a jabita, the issue is also the vast majority of Cubans who sit on their hands and just watch while courageous dissidents stand up to tyranny, and immoral opportunists shout them down for some toothpaste and bottled water.

    “If that silent majority ever wakes up and stands up, the Castro tyranny will not last a day.”

    It is not up to the opposition to achieve freedom in Cuba, and it is not up to the animals that sell their loyalty for a jabita to keep freedom from coming; it is up to the millions that do nothing while this is going on.

  3. I feel the same frustration right now. I have very little hope left that a mass revolt will happen in the near future in Cuba. I understand the fear aspect of things, but unlike the Libyans, who have felt the same fear for over 40 years, stood up and are doing something about it.
    I don’t know if it’s fear, brain-washing, or they simply gave up hope themselves & no longer care, but I’m losing all aspirations especially after this week, with the anniversaries of OZT and BTTR.
    Maybe after 52 years, castro succeeded in his mission to create a very unique breed of dog called ‘la jabitas’ that respond only to their master’s voice and sicks them on the few courageous people left…sad beyond words.

  4. Alberto,
    I agree to a point. If 52 years of this mierda is not enough, and the abuses against Las Damas and the other dissidents is not enough, then what is?
    I believe that nothing short of a total economic collapse would trigger the people and Obama and many Cuban Americans who donate to castro inc. will not allow that to happen. If Cuban Americans would cut off remittances for just a few months for the sake of freedom this could possibly happen.
    BTW- Pardon my enunciation based spelling of jabita/javita

  5. Pototo,

    I agree with you 100%. I also agree with those that criticize those of us who are against sending money to Cuba because we may not have families there struggling for essentials. That is understood! My family is mainly in the US, Spain and Italy. Some very distant family is still in Cuba that we are not in contact with.

    In the end, a grave economic colapse for the country, govt and people will put an end to all of this. However, it is my opinion that there is going to be alot of blood shed in Cuba when change comes. It’s the only way to cleanse of the evil nature of alot of the people that have been mentally programmed to hate the western freedom and democracy.

  6. CCA,
    I don’t begrudge those who send medicines and “necessary” items. I begrudge those that send giant screen LCDs, DVD players, ghetto blasters, etc. What they pay in duties castro inc. appreciates greatly. I begrudge those that think that an extravagant 15th birthday is a necessity. I begrudge the hypocrites that say that they needed to escape Cuba, yet return as soon as possible with their rented jewelry and rented girlfriend. I have snt my family medicine, but never the niceties of life. castro inc. would starve if all did the same.
    I agree totaslly regarding the blood shed. The stooges have plenty to fear.

  7. It hurts–it really hurts to write this. But let’s be practical here: imagine the reaction from a joe-sixpack, middle-American unfamiliar with Cuba-stuff watching this: “Good grief, a “buncha n***ers screaming at each other in some third-world pest-hole…who cares? sure hope my tax money ain’t involved!”

    Let’s get more of them to Babalu, so they’ll learn and–just maybe–care.

  8. First of all, let’s acknowledge that practically any and all remittances of money or goods to Cuba, all trips either way, all phone calls, all transactions or interactions with Cuban entities, regardless of the reason, benefit Castro, Inc. in some fashion. Castro, Inc. has every intention that it be that way and does everything in its considerable power to ensure that–it knows a cash cow when it sees one, and you’d better believe it’s gonna milk it for all it’s worth. Cubans on the island are like hostages for whom ransom is extracted from Cubans abroad. It’s an extremely effective racket for the regime, clearly one of its most brilliant ploys. Only the petrodollars from Venezuela can compare in terms of revenue, but Chávez is not a sure thing indefinitely; not even the USSR was. The ties of family and friendship, however, are much more reliable and renewable over time, as shown by the Mexican Model, which has been going strong for ages and only seems to escalate. The Castrocuban Model is similar, but potentially even better for purposes of emotional or sentimental manipulation–Mexicans may be poor, but they’re not the hostages of a totalitarian regime with absolute power over every aspect of national life.

    Despite the depressing reality of the situation, it is neither reasonable nor realistic to ask, let alone expect, Cuban exiles or emigrants to ignore the material needs of their loved ones in Cuba. However, the critical word is NEEDS, as in true necessities or indispensable aid. This implies due selectivity or discernment as to what is and is not essential, and only sending essential aid, but that is absolutely NOT how things actually work–and there’s the rub. By and large, it’s a free-for-all, limited mainly by how much those outside Cuba can afford to spend, and quite a few are spending beyond their means. In all too many cases, the degree of mindlessness, not to say frivolity or shamelessness, is remarkable, if not astonishing. Many people arent’ simply sending what’s truly needed; they’re sending anything and everything they can manage to pay for, even if it means chronic credit card debt. Most trips, for instance, are simply not necessary, yet they’re proliferating markedly and will continue to do so. It’s definitely not a question of the US government playing strict traffic cop; this is a Cuban matter and it is the responsibility of Cubans themselves. If they won’t control themselves, government attempts at controlling the situation will simply be gotten around somehow, as has always been the case. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

    So don’t look to DC, and don’t bother trying to get the nothing-is-too-much crowd to change its ways because you wish they would. It’s their money and their decision, as they will surely tell you. I don’t see things changing significantly, except for the worse. Like Zoé Valdés likes to say, “eso es lo que trajo el barco” (that’s what the ship brought in). Castro, Inc. is certainly counting on it.
