Former “President” Fidel Castro’s Birthday

In the process of plunging a nation with a standard of living higher than half of Europe’s and swamped with immigrants into a pesthole that repels Haitians, the Castro brothers and Che Guevara deprived an estimated 100,000 Cubans of birthday celebrations.

But we search all the media mentions of Castro’s birthday in utter vain for any reminder of this. Another Latin-American “leader” got dramatically different treatment. Here’s the Washington Post 12/10/06:

Gen. Augusto Pinochet, 91, the former Chilean dictator whose government murdered and tortured thousands during his repressive 17-year rule, died yesterday.”

Now here’s The New York Times 12/11/06:

Augusto Pinochet, Dictator Who Ruled by Terror in Chile, Dies at 91. Gen. Augusto Pinochet Ugarte, the brutal dictator who repressed and reshaped Chile for nearly two decades and became a notorious symbol of human rights abuse and corruption, died yesterday at the Military Hospital of Santiago.”

The above consist of the very first sentences of these MSM stories on Pinochet.

  1. The usual suspects will never do a Pinochet on Castro. For one thing, they share in the responsibility for his crimes, since they’ve enabled him all along, even before 1959, both by omission and commission. They have been deeply dishonorable and persistently perverse, and no amount of contempt is enough to scorn them as they deserve. Alas, while they have enabled from a distance, Cubans themselves have implemented the terror and misery of totalitarianism in situ, and those Cubans are even more contemptible. The island is crawling with such creatures, and even after the fall of the regime, they are not going to disappear or magically transform into decent people. As Juan Abreu said, “Cuanto mierda!”
