Move over Dorothy. Move over Alice. Move over Dana Wynter in The Invasion of Body Snatchers.
You see, Cuban dissident Miriam Celaya (who actually lives and reports from Cuba) recently found herself in a place more surreal and terrifying than you will ever know. Nothing made sense. Everything was upside-down, phantasmagorical and worse…hideous and fantastic lies went completely unquestioned…seemingly sane people eagerly accepted spells and potions from Shamans and Witch Doctors….
You see, Miriam Celaya (who actually lives and reports from Cuba) found herself in a gathering of Cuba “experts” at Columbia University. These “experts” were all describing life in Cuba in their usual manner to an eagerly-listening U.S. media…..
From Capitol Hill Cubans:
Last month, a conference was held at Columbia University entitled, “Covering Cuba in an Era of Change,” which gathered over a dozen U.S.-based Cuba “experts” (propagandists), in order to praise Raul “the reformer” and criticize the United States.
The panelists included U.S. Rep. James McGovern (D-MA), attorney Greg Craig, William LeoGrande, Peter Kornbluh, etc. — you get the point.
An exception among the participants was renowned Cuban dissident and blogger, Miriam Celaya, who left horrified by the deceptive image of Cuba that these U.S.-based “experts” were propagating.
Who can blame poor Miriam Celaya if she never recovers from the psychic and sensory trauma…….??????
