U.S. denies visas to over 200 socialist academics sent by Cuba’s Castro dictatorship

Typical “academic” propaganda event held by the Cuban delegation to LASA, this one in San Francisco in 2012.

The annual Latin American Studies Association (LASA) conference is being held in Boston and Cuba’s socialist Castro dictatorship was hoping to send over 200 of its so-called academics to attend. The Castro dictatorship has used the LASA conference in the past to spread its propaganda and recruit intelligence assets, using the “academics” as cover.

In total, 236 Cuban academics applied for visas to attend, but the U.S. denied 212 (via Miami’s WPLG Local 10 News):

More than two hundred Cuban academics who were hoping to attend the annual Latin American Studies Association (LASA) conference were denied visas to the United States, said Cuban education officials on Thursday. 

Of those who applied for visas, 212 were denied while only 24 were approved, said Rafael Cervantes Martinez, a university professor who was among those denied and denounced the move as political. 

The communist apparatchiks . . . I mean academics . . . are squealing like stuck picks upon learning they won’t be leaving their socialist paradise and traveling to the horrible imperial U.S. It is quite rich to watch them complain about the U.S. persecuting them when they serve the most repressive and suppressive totalitarian dictatorship in the Western Hemisphere.

The only Cubans more upset than the “academics” over the visa denials are the Cuban intelligence agents they report to. They were counting on them bringing back a wealth of intelligence and a list of potential new recruits in American academia for Castro intelligence.

Oh well, there’s always next year.

  1. Uh oh, expect an open letter [that will be picked up by every MSM news outlet around] attacking [they will word it someone like this] the willful censorship of honest, non-political academicians. They will say that the embargo has not worked in 60 years, it is counterproductive and that Cuban politics should not be held hostage to a group of aging, revenge seeking Miami Cubans that do not represent their community.

    Meanwhile, one wonders why American immigration law is held hostage by groups like MALDEF, NATIONAL COUNCIL OF LA RAZA, LULAC, MECHE, the National Hispanic Congressional Caucus [that should be renamed the National Chicano Caucus] , UNIVISON and Jorge Ramos and nobody says anything or objects?

  2. Don’t blame Castronoids for being what they are. Blame their foreign enablers, like our Latrine “brothers,” and if you really want to vent contempt, blame the Cubanoids who’ve played along with LASA–like the now disgraced and discarded Jorge Domínguez.

  3. “Intellectuals” are to be treated with skepticism, since even genius-level IQ can coexist with MAJOR hijeputez. All so-called intellectuals are potentially overrated if not frankly full of it, and there are numerous and extremely notorious historical examples. Lord knows Cuba’s “intellectuals” were not only useless against the Castro threat but actually aided and abetted it, regardless of intent.
