|Fleeing a Socialist paradise:
Cuban refugees on their way to the USA
On the 25th of November last year the great Marxist revolutionary Fidel Castro died. In South Africa, the ANC cried for weeks, about their great hero and friend.
A few days prior to that Donald Trump became the president of the USA on a Republican ticket and with a lot of anti illegal Hispanic rhetoric.
The most amazing thing that the liberals wanted to hide was that the State of Florida, where the demographics show 46% are Hispanic and only 29% white voted for Donald Trump.
In the capital of Miami, where 70% of the people are Hispanic (mostly Cuban) and only 19% white 34% voted for Trump. Even when one assumes that 100% of the whites in Miami voted for Trump it still leaves a huge percentage of Hispanics who voted against the Socialist (read Communist) Hillary Clinton.
I saw several interviews by the world media where Miami Cubans were asked who they would be voting for. Almost to a man they said for Trump. Why?
Since 1959 and the great Cuban revolution, more than 1.5 million people have fled the Marxist paradise of Cuba for Miami. More than 46,000 Cubans without visas attempted entry in the 2016 . The USA always had an open door policy towards these people and since 1995 Bill Clinton’s introduced the “wet-foot, dry-foot” policy of giving Cuban refugees residence permits and eventual citizenship…But a few days before Barack Obama stepped down as president of the USA, he cancelled this policy.
This is where the conundrum comes in, because when you ask the average world liberal, he/she will tell you that Trump is “anti-immigration” and Obama/Hillary are “pro-immigration”.
In other words Trump is a racist and the Obama/Hilarry multi-culti embracers. Why then would Obama block Cuban refugees as a last stab in the back before he resigned?
See, Obama is a Communist, just like Hillary is a Communist and allowing refugees in who are fleeing a Communist Utopia is bad PR for Communism. They would like you to believe that Communism is dead…like it is dead in North Korea, China and Vietnam.
Fidel Castro might be dead, but the Communist Castro regime carries on under his brother Raul Castro. Ob the 26th of July 2008, when Fidel was too old and sickly to carry on governing, his brother took over the reins. The dictator Fidel ruled Cuba from 1st of January 1959 until 2008. Almost 49 years. Forty nine years of HELL in which Cuba has distinguished itself as one of the worst, most monstrous human rights abusers in the world.
More than 500,000 people passed through the Communist Gulag death camps.
With a population of only 11 million, it gives Castro’s despotism the highest per capita political incarceration rate in the world. Torture is institutionalized. A myriad of human rights organisations such as the Red Cross and Amnesty International have documented the regime’s use of electric shocks, dark coffin sized isolation cells and beatings to punish “anti socialist elements”. Firing squads have carried out more than 15,000 executions. Family members who want to claim the body have to pay for the bullet first and are ordered not to cry at the funeral.
The Cuban barbarity is epitomised in the labour camp on the Isle of Pines under the “Camilo Cienfeugos Plan” where prisoners are forced to work naked, beaten with electric cables, have to cut grass with their teeth and sit in latrine trenches, neck deep in faeces and urine, for long periods of time. Some are forced to eat the shit and smile and make happy faces to the amusement of the guards.
In 1960 the 23 year old Cuban poet Armando Valladares Perez refused to write “I am with Fidel” on his desk and dared to raise issues of freedom under the new Castro Liberation Regime…He spent the next 22 years being tortured in prison. His book “Against all hope” stands as Cuba’s version of Solzhenitsyn’s “Gulag Archipelago”.
Describing his incarceration later, Valladares wrote:
“For me, it meant 8,000 days of hunger, of systematic beatings, of hard labor, of solitary confinement and solitude, 8,000 days of struggling to prove that I was a human being, 8,000 days of proving that my spirit could triumph over exhaustion and pain, 8,000 days of testing my religious convictions, my faith, of fighting the hate my atheist jailers were trying to instill in me with each bayonet thrust, fighting so that hate would not flourish in my heart, 8,000 days of struggling so that I would not become like them.”
Describing the great revolutionary Ché Guevara, Valaderes said, “He was a man full of hatred … Che Guevara executed dozens and dozens of people who never once stood trial and were never declared guilty … In his own words, he said the following: “At the smallest of doubt we must execute.” And that’s what he did at the Sierra Maestra and the prison of Las Cabanas.”
One of Valaderes’ prison friends, Roberto Lopez Chavez, a devote Christian, went on a hunger strike to protest the abuses in the camps. The guards witheld water from him and when he became delirious twisting on the floor begging for something to drink, the guards urinated in his mouth telling him that there was no God to help him. He died the next day.
So good are the Cuban Communists with torture that they even run torture camps for others. During the Vietnam War they ran the Cu Loc POW camp in Hanoi (aka “The Zoo”) torturing US soldiers and pilots captured by the Viet Cong.
Major James Kasler was tortured by Communist scum for six and a half years. You can read about his ordeal here: James Kasler torture . Kasler managed to survive. So did Air Force Colonel Edward Hubbard, but one who did not was Lt.Col Earl Cobeil. He was tortured to death.
The man in charge of the torture was the sadistic General Fernando Vecino Alegret (nicknamed “Fidel”) by the prisoners. He later became the Cuban Minister of Education. The Cuban government denied that he was ever in Vietnam saying he was in Angola.
But it is not only in POW camps and political prisons where the Communist reign of terror is felt. Normal Cubans have their daily lives run by the CDR, The Committee for the Defence of the Cuban Revolution.
The CDR controls every city block and every farming unit. They know the affairs of every one and know exactly what every person and family is doing. Anything suspicious is reported. They control how food rations are distributed, where people are allowed to move, what they can study, where they can work and how they can spend their free time.
In Cuba ordinary people do not have human rights. They cannot move freely or travel outside of their own country. They cannot belong to religious or cultural organizations of their choice. There is no free expression. Radio, television, films and media are censored. There are no free political parties or independent unions.
The Castro regime also practices a vicious form of racism. Before Castro, blacks enjoyed upward social mobility and served in many government positions. In Castro’s Cuba 80% of the prison population is black, while the government hierarchy is 100% white.
Cuban Communism follows the usual Leninist and Stalinist model of “equality” that the ANC also practices in South Africa. Members of the Communist Nomenklatura live like kings and millionaires while the ordinary citizens live in utter poverty.
In Cuba the shelves in the stores are empty and food is tightly rationed. Teachers and doctors drive taxis or work as waiters for extra money to support their families.
Homosexuality is especially reviled by the totalitarian Castro Regime. There is no such thing as “gay rights” in Cuba and one can get a prison sentence of up to twenty years for homosexual behaviour. The regime brushes aside criticism of this saying that a place where homosexuals are all together must be like paradise to them.
Under the Cuban system of “Tourist Apartheid” ordinary Cubans are not allowed into the hotels designated for tourist or Communist Party functionaries and police wait inside every such hotel to arrest any unauthorized Cuban who dares to enter.
These hotels and restricted tourism of Cuba is a necessary “capitalist evil”, because the only thing that kept Cuban Communism from imploding long ago was the $5-Billion a year Soviet subsidy. Despite the Billions and the bit of tourism of today, Communist Cuba is one of the poorest nations in the world.
Castro’s personal belief was “Socialism or death”. Pre Castro, Cuba exported sugar, tobacco and beef in large numbers. Castro destroyed all of these industries. Today Cuba is a beggar nation and despite being geographically only 90 miles from Haiti, even Haitian refugees give the Socialist Paradise and Utopia of Cuba a miss.
Over the years a total of about 2 million people have fled Cuba in make shift rafts and inner tubes crossing shark-infested waters. Between 50,000 to 80,000 people have lost their lives like that. Not content with the sharks eating his fleeing citizens Castro sent helicopters to drop sand bags onto their rafts and gun them down.
One such incident was The Tugboat Massacre of July the 13, 1994.
On that faithful morning, around seventy men, women, and children stole an old wooden tugboat called the “13 de Marzo” (13th of March) and attempted to flee with it to the USA. Castro ordered his Coast Guard to repeatedly ram their boat and split it apart. When the people were in the water they circled them to create a whirlpool so they would drown and kept their heads under water with fire hoses. 41 people including ten children drowned. A few survivors who clung to a refrigeration box were told to swim back to land. Fortunately they were rescued by a Greek freighter and several US Coast Guard. You can see some of those who drowned here: Victims of the Tugboat Massacre
This is the Cuba and the regime that the ANC is in love with and want to duplicate in South Africa. Nelson Mandela awarded Fidel Castro South Africa’s highest civilian award for foreigners, The Order of Good Hope. Jacob Zuma praised him as a great friend of blacks in their struggle against Apartheid.
In Cuba itself, nothing is named after Fidel Castro. It was his personal wish that no street, park or building should be named after him. There are no monuments to him.
Despite this, the ANC named four streets after him (Pretoria, Cape Town, Ladysmith and Klerksdorp). The Department of Health in Limpopo Province was named “Fidel Castro Ruz House”. Also in Windhoek in Namibia there is a street and a school named after Castro.
The ANC drove our own engineers, doctors and nurses away and now employ Cubans (Communist Party members) in their place. The ANC destroyed our medical schools and now send black students to go and study medicine in Cuba.
You can read what I wrote about how these black students represent South Africa in Cuba with their regular simian behavior : South African medical students in Cuba making a name for themselves
This again shows the utter hypocrisy of the ANC. Outwardly they want to project an image of the champions of freedom and human rights, gay rights, etc…The claim to be against racial discrimination, but not in Cuba…
Behind the backs of the world’s liberals they are in love with the most despotic tyrants in the world of which the Castro regime is but one. Mugabe is another. The Butcher of Dafur, Sudan’s mass murdering president Omar al-Bashir, indicted by the International Criminal Court on charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, is another great friend of the ANC. In fact, when you look at all the ANC’s friends…they are criminals, thieves, mass murderers or tyrants. The ANC is utterly in love with tyrants.
People should take a close look at Cuba, because this is the eventual “Paradise” the ANC envisage for South Africa.
