The Herald tries to pull a fast one with the Bretos article and Henry “El Conductor” sounds the bugle. Crazy whoops sound in the distance and the sound of hoofbeats approach……..We crane our necks and shield the sun from our eyes for a better view……
Yes! Here he comes! Waving his saber overhead and whooping like Slim Pickens riding the bomb at the end of Dr Strangelove– its Professor Tony De la Cova! He gallops into the picture hacking savagely with one hand and blasting away on his six-shooter with the other. The Herald’s ploy is rendered– not just into dead-meat–but into dead meat blasted and hacked to smithereens. He exposes the Herald author (and Herald editors, once again) as pathetic and scheming FRAUDS. You GOTTA LOVE IT!
It’s an old story, actually. The pink Media/Academia/Democratic alliance simply cannot get it through their THICK heads that most Americans of Cuban heritage will NOT accept marching orders, cues and talking points from them, like good little “Hispanics,” rewarded with a nice little pat on the head.
This drives them BONKERS!–has for 40 years. “What?!” We snort like Moe Green when Michael Corleone threatened him. “NO! I buy YOU out!” This drives them crazy. Fortunately they can’t retaliate (quite) like Mikey Corleone.
It’s on oft-used ploy by the above-mentioned alliance. They ferret out a Cuban-American willing to demonstrate his superior wisdom, erudition, social-cachet by bad-mouthing (however subtly) those chusmas in Miami and their Castro obsession. Note the term “pimping.” We’re nothing but cheap whorehoppers, you see.
Well, the New York Times ( a much bigger fish than the Miami Herald) tried it with our friend Professor Carlos Eire. (a much bigger catch than this Bretos fraud–Carlos won the National Book Award.) Carlos’ response to the world’s most famous newspaper was no different from Colonel Mc Auliffe’s to the Nazi commander who demanded his surrender during the Battle of the Bulge –“NUTS!!”
When the New York Times attempted to dictate the slant of his editorial, professor Eire, (in his own characteristically gentlemanly way) told the world’s most influential periodical to go piss up a rope. He would NOT play along in their little scheme to smear his compatriots–regardless of the fame a New York Times editorial would gain him. You gotta love that too.
Why Americans of Cuban heritage vote mostly Republican should be obvious: Cuban-Americans are mostly white, middle class, family-oriented Americans with the same financial, cultural and defense concerns as most white, middle class, family-oriented U.S. citizens.. So they vote, almost exactly, like most white, middle class, family-oriented Americans. End of story.
Naturally it galls the above alliance that Cuban-Americans zoomed to middle-class status without their blessing and patronage–indeed, in violent antagonism to it. More galling still, in the process, we zoomed past most of their “ethnic” and “minority” constituents, who still dutifully punch the clock on the liberal plantation. So they erupt in frequent hissy-fits. You gotta love that too.
The Bay of Pigs, Kennedy-Khrushchev, Elian factors are obviously all important–but not crucial, it seems to me. Too often the Democratic platform sounds like a Lite version of what we fled. All that socialized medicine, class-envy, racial demagoguery stuff spouted by Democrats–now where have we heard THAT before, hunh?
A Democratic convention looks and sounds alarmingly like a Castro rally in 1959. “Hillary esta es tu casa!”…”Teddy seguro– dale a los Yankees duro!” we expect to hear. With Michael Moore as their guest of Honor in 2004 a Cuban-American who voted for them comes across– not as misguided–but as downright masochistic, like a battered wife meekly returning to the grimy brute for another battering.
Anyway, I ask : would it be possible to share an occasional forum with a more illustrious, informative and KICK-ASS team? It’s a treat to rub shoulders with everyone on this site.
