Bernie Sanders says “Cubans never rose against Castro”–here’s a quick history lesson


“In 1959 everybody was totally convinced that Fidel Castro was the worst guy in the world and all of the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro…They forgot that he educated their kids, gave their kids healthcare, totally transformed the society…..So they expected this tremendous uprising in Cuba, but it never came.” (Bernie Sanders)


Regarding Bernie Sanders’ imbecility about the Cuban uprising “that never came:”

In fact, the only genuinely popular rebellion and genuine guerrilla war in Cuba during the 20th Century was waged against the regime co-founded by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara…but JFK’s Missile crisis “victory,” pledged to the Soviets that the U.S. immediately pull the rug out from under Cuba’s valiant and desperate freedom-fighters.

To get an idea of the odds faced by those betrayed Cuban rebels, the desperation of their battle and the damage they wrought, you might revisit Tony Montana during the last 15 minutes of “Scarface.”


But these genuine freedom-fighters– who are fighting desperately 90 miles from our shores against a rabid and lifelong anti-American terrorist–let’s sell them down the river!

In fact, if Cuba’s anti-Castro rebels had gotten similar help from the U.S. as George Washington’s anti-British rebels got from France, some murderers and bandits named Fidel Castro and Che Guevara would get less Wikipedia space today than Pancho Villa. In fact, more French troops fought and died at Yorktown than did colonial rebels.

Raul Castro himself admitted (as documented in Enrique Encinosa’s invaluable book) that at the time of the Missile Crisis his troops and their Soviet advisors were up against 179 different “bands of bandits” as Castro labeled the thousands of Cuban anti-Communist rebels then battling savagely and virtually alone in Cuba’s countryside, with small arms shipments from their compatriots in south Florida as their only lifeline.

Kennedy’s Missile-Crisis deal with Khrushchev cut this lifeline. It’s a tribute to the power of Castroite mythology that even with all this information a matter of public record for almost half a century the academic/media mantra (gloat, actually) still has Castro,” defying ten U.S. Presidents!”

Instead Cuba’s owns sons were sandbagged by a U.S. President from “nation-building” in their own nation on America’s very doorstep—and where a free and prosperous nation that attracted waves of first-world immigrants had actually existed only years earlier.

Later U.S. Presidents sent hundreds of thousands of America’s sons across vast oceans to “nation-build” in places where “nation-building” had the same chance as a snowball in Hades.

“Humberto Fontova’s book teaches us truths about Castro’s island that are very discomfiting for many intellectuals.” (Ana Botella, Spain’s former First Lady while giving a book reading in Madrid, upon “Fidel; HFT” release in Spain.)

  1. Sanders, unlike, say, Michael Moore, probably sincerely believes what he’s saying, which isn’t especially hard, given the degree to which Cuba’s history has been deliberately distorted and falsified (not to mention the fact that Sanders would WANT to believe that).

    And, as so often happens, we wind up at JFK, which needs no elaboration. Basically, he did to Cuba what Ted Kennedy did to Mary Jo Kopechne, which tends to suggest congenital HIJEPUTEZ (and old Joseph Kennedy was definitely a piece of work). Truly, how any Cuban can be a Democrat is beyond me, because that entails a complete lack of dignity and respectability, even though most anything can be rationalized.
