After Sponsor of Terrorism designation, Cuban dictatorship responds with wild conspiracy theories

Since the communist Castro dictatorship can’t refute it’s a State Sponsor of Terrorism, it chose instead to respond to the well-deserved designation with some crazy conspiracy theories.

Frances Martel reports in Breitbart:

Cuba Accuses U.S. of ‘Biological War’ After Terror Designation

Granma, the official newspaper of the Communist Party of Cuba, accused the United States on Thursday of “biological war” against the island after the State Department announced this week that Cuba would return to its list of state sponsors of terrorism.

The State Department noted the Castro regime regularly offers safe haven to American criminals and has for decades maintained ties to groups like Hezbollah, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). The communist regime also celebrates as heroes spies like the “Cuban Five,” responsible for the deaths of four U.S. citizens in the 1990s.

The Cuban Ministry of Foreign Relations (Minrex) derided the designation as “fraudulent” and “hypocritical” in statements separate from the Granma screed.

“The imperial nation developed a cruel biological war against our country, sponsored attacks on defenseless populations, kidnapped and sank fishing vessels and, more recently, consistent with years of practice, maintained silence before a grave attack with long arms against the Cuban embassy in Washington,” Granma accused.

The latter is a reference to a lone Cuban national attacking the embassy in May. Police swiftly ended the attack and no one was injured.

It is not clear what incidents Granma is referring to regarding alleged abductions and a “biological war,” or attacks on “defenseless populations.” The state media article did not provide any other details to help readers identify what it was addressing.

Elsewhere in the article, Granma referred to the State Sponsors of Terrorism list as “spurious” and proof “once again of the cult of dies and double morality that characterizes the political acts of this administration,” referring to that of President Donald Trump. It also defined the Castro regime, and not the people it oppresses, as a “constant victim.”

The official statement from Minrex similarly insisted that Cuba, despite its decades of history aiding violent terrorist groups, was not a candidate for the list of state sponsors of terrorism.

  1. They know they can say or claim absolutely anything, and the usual suspects will at least give them the benefit of the doubt, if not better. This naturally encourages people whose power is based on and depends on lies, people who MUST lie, to lie as outrageously as they want. Again, they know they’ve got coverage.

  2. Oh, and love the photo, a kind of visual Freudian slip: White SOBs front and center, in costume even, and Cuban of color (not to say house Negro) in the fuzzy background–and he’d better be damn grateful, to boot.
