America’s TOP educator on Cuba visits Cuba! (Francis Ford Coppola)


I trust no one hereabouts will question my ranking of Francis Ford Coppola as America’s (perhaps the world’s!) undisputed champion of e-du-ma-ca-chion on pre-Castro Cuba? Some testimonials:

“All I know about pre-Castro Cuba I learned from The Godfather II.” (Jon Stewart, often touted as the top news source for young Americans)

“I mean everybody who saw Godfather II knows what it was like when Castro took over.” (NBC’s Chris Matthews, winner of the David Brinkley Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism.)

Last week Cuba’s Stalinist regime feted one of their favorite adjunct propaganda apparatchiks.

On Tuesday, Coppola, who helmed the famous “Godfather” trilogy starring the iconic Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Diane Keaton and Andy Garcia, visited Cuba’s International School of Cinema and Television of San Antonio de los Banos, or EICTV, which is west of Havana, according to EFE.

During his visit, he expressed his admiration for President Barack Obama and his happiness to see Cuba and the United States resuming diplomatic relations.

“I am very happy, I think it’s wonderful,” Coppola told EFE.

Thrilled to see tensions ease during his lifetime, Coppola further expressed his gratitude.

“I thought it was going to happen during the term of President (Jimmy) Carter (…) Now we have (Barack) Obama, in my opinion a great president, and I know he feels we should have relations with Cuba, and I repeat, I am happy that we are seeing it materialize,” he added.

  1. So what has the old fart done lately? Film-wise, I mean. However, looks like once a useful tool, always a useful tool.

  2. If Coppola was any more of a stereotype, he’d be a cardboard character in a Mel Brooks farce. His moment is clearly past, but he’s still heavy-handedly working the PC shtick–only now it seems not just opportunistic but desperate. Whatever film talent he may have had, he’s basically an old schmuck.

  3. The fact Chris Matthews could make such a statement, apparently in earnest, and even begin to be taken seriously is a sign of degeneracy–and I don’t mean his.

  4. “Fidel, I love you. We both have beards. We both have power and want to use it for good purposes.” Translation: “I’m such a moron I can’t modulate BS to make it sound even tolerably legitimate; I just let it rip like a fart on steroids.” However, to be fair, at least he didn’t go as far as Spielberg, which is something.
