“Who jumped on rafts to escape Batista?–you wanna answer THAT?!” (Fontova DESTROYS Soledad O’Brien on MSNBC)

Against Cuban-Americans,  liberals love to “play the Batista card,” –love to whip out their famous “reducto ad Batisteum….(you know, very similar to their use of the “Hitler card” or “reducto ad Hitlereum.”)

You know how it goes:  “Are you ACTUALLY defending the policies of Hilter, Batista, etc.!? etc. …blah…blah..blah!?)

This usually shuts their pet Politically-Correct Cuban-American adversary right up– or puts them on the defensive, hemming and hawing and nervously shuffling their feet and beating around the bush about how how “yes, certainly pre-Castro Cuba needed changes blah…blah…booh-hooh..whimper-whimper.”

HAH!…Well, Soledad O’Brien, Joe Scarborough  (and hundreds of thousand of unsuspecting MSNBC viewers) recently GAPED at the rebuttal when O’Brien tried pulling that card on a proudly UNrespectable and grotesquely REACTIONARY CUBAN-CAJUN!

“No, no, no ,no, NO!…what you’re saying (about pre-Castro Cuba) is BOGUS–UTTERLY BOGUS!” laughed O’Briens’ sparring partner as the former CNN hostess rapidly lost her cool. “WHO jumped on rafts to escape Batista? Can you please answer me THAT?…In fact during Batista’s rule more Americans lived in Cuba than did Cubans in the U.S.–and this was at a time that any Cuban could freely leave Cuba and get a U.S. visa for the asking! During that time Cuba had a higher standard of living than much of Europe!”

“More BOGUS stuff!” The reactionary author guest kept laughing at o’Brien –“In fact the U.S. HELPED put Castro in power. It’s documented by a former U.S. ambassador to Cuba “Everyone at the CIA and everyone at the State dept. was PRO-Castro,” he revealed!””No. No. No. No!..”

Safe to say that nothing so REMOTELY Politically-INcorrect about Cuba had EVER been heard in the mainstream media before. The reaction from conservative media was instant and amazing: (“DESTROYS!”–“SHUTS-DOWN!”–“SHELLACS!”–“EVISCERATES!”…etc.)

Among the other highlights:

“Folks Castro regime jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s regime during the great terror. They murdered, murdered, mostly by firing squad, more political prisoners in their first three years in power than Hitler’s regime murdered in his first six. They drove 20 times as many people to die trying to escape from Cuba as died trying to escape East Germany, and we’re hearing about complicated emotions? Please give me a break!”

“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)

“I read Fontova’s book on Che Guevara in two sittings– I could not put it down.”  (Radio and Fox News superstar Mark “The Great One” Levin.)

Castro is considered lovable by many celebrities–but the fact is the Cuban people are suffering. It’s well worth reading a book by Humberto Fontova, who lists all the facts–and also footnotes them!” (Radio Superstar Dennis Prager.)

“A great expose’ of Hollywood pinheads” (Bill O’Reilly on Fidel; Hollywoods Favorite Tyrant.)

  1. Kudos Humberto for putting Soledad in her place. She’s a piece of work. She talks about her afrocuban family doing so bad in pre-castro Cuba, but did you know that her mother studied at John Hopkins University? Estela Lucrecia (Marquetti y Mendieta), a Cuban from Havana, who is Afro-Cuban, was a French and English teacher who came from Cuba to study at that prestigious college in Baltimore. How many people who are doing so bad can afford to send their children to the US to study and to enroll in an expensive and prestigious university like John Hopkins? Her family was clearly not doing bad. Most Americans can’t afford to send their childrent to John Hopkins, but Soledad’s mother does and this b-t-ch is talking about her family doing so bad?

    Soledad clearly feels nothing for Cubans. During Elian, she bashed the Cuban community. I think that she’s an opportunist who repeats the party line and is so disengaged from Cuba that she sounds as ignorant as one of these naive Americans that we encounter all of that time.

    By the way, isn’t ironic that she mentions the demographic change in Cuba from a white to a mulatto/black country as one of the successes of the “revolution” but she herself is married to a blond, blue eyed man? So, she’s “adentando la raza,” while she’s praising Cuba’s blackening! She has serious issues.

  2. I never watch CNN, and this O’Brien person has never existed in my world, but I still wish she were a bona fide “Latina” instead of Cuban extraction, because my supply of vergüenza ajena is starting to run low–there’s just way too much call for it. I may have to start issuing the equivalent of form letters in response to yet another disgraceful Cubanoid eruption like this one.

  3. O’Brien was born and raised in the US and does not speak fluent Spanish. Her white father was from Australia, and he married her mother in the US in 1958, meaning the mother was a US resident since before the Castro era and would not have experienced the “revolution” personally. Whatever Cuba connection Soledad might have is probably rather tenuous, not to say flimsy. In other words, she’s most definitely no Cuba expert, meaning a real one.

  4. For what it’s worth, my mother would not have looked favorably on Cuban parents abroad who failed to ensure their children learned Spanish, especially a Cuban parent who was a language teacher. My mom taught my younger brother to read and write in Spanish at home, where we always spoke Spanish. His Spanish is not perfect, but it’s quite serviceable. She would have been humiliated by a child who couldn’t handle his native tongue at least reasonably well.
