For the first time in the history of this newspaper, we can’t show respect to a figure that otherwise deserves the respect of us all.
But since Barack Obama showed no respect to anyone but his own clan with his trip to the communist island of Cuba, we are not too concerned about being politically correct or showing that much respect to the position that Barack Obama himself has chosen to disrespect by the action he has taken.
It has been our position always that Cuba has to be liberated before a cordial relationship between the Cubans and the United States could be reestablished. It is our humble opinion that the visit of the American President to the communist island is an insult to the Cuban community in the United States — a disrespectful position of the Obama administration to the memory of the thousands of Cubans that have died in the Castro prisons and many more that found death in the ocean trying to escape the communist regime on the island, and an insult to the millions of Cubans living in the United States, many of whom have served in the military of this great nation, and those CubanAmericans that have given their lives protecting the United States of America.
We believe that Barack Obama was elected president of the United States as a Democrat by the Democratic Party and a few traitors from other political parties, but we’d like to believe that Obama was not elected by the Communist Party to make friends with and bow to the criminal communists on the island of Cuba, that he was not elected to kiss the bloody hands of Fidel and Raul Castro who have killed and tortured so many innocent people in Cuba.
“Most of the answers you’ll find out there are lunatic claims by the exiled community. An accurate estimate would be several thousand though. That’s horrific enough, but exiles routinely make bizarre claims of tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands,” says Al Carroll, a historian, an author and history professor at Northern VA Community College.
But the anti-Castro online block Babalu reports that The Cuba Archive, which documents deaths and disappearances resulting from Fidel Castro’s Cuban revolution, has documented 3,615 firing squad executions conducted by the Cuban state since Castro took over on January 1, 1959.
Like it makes any difference if the amount of deaths on the hands of the Cuban government is in the hundreds or thousands, murder is murder Mr. Al Carroll.
“Most of the deaths he ordered were at the start of his rule, executions of Batista’s torturers and murderers,” writes Al Carroll.
We wondered if Al Carroll knows that most of the alleged murderers that he refers to are alive today or were killed by the Fidel and Raul Castro Regime?
We wonder if most of the people involved in the attack of the 1953 military barrack Moncada that lead to the revolutionary name of the Castro’s gang “26 de Julio” were arrested and later charged and tried in a court of law.
The trials were farcical, mostly bouts of rage from an angry public followed by quick deaths with no appeal. Most of the men, though, were guilty and would have been found guilty of murder had the trials been fairly tried with the defendants later free to leave the country by the airport or via exile to any embassy that would choose to accept them.
It is important to note that at that time every country in the world had a relationship with and kept an embassy and consulate in Cuba.
During Fidel Castro’s incarceration for the Moncada attack, in the Isla de Pino Penitentiary, he had in his cell a telephone line, a television set and his own library, far from been brutalized, tortured and killed by the Batista regime.
Obama should have consulted experts and should have educated himself in the Cuban history before he decided to make history for himself by bowing to Castro and kissing his bloody hands.
Barack Obama should have thought twice before he embarrassed the American people by abusing his position by going around apologizing to those that he has no business apologizing to; he should have thought twice before he bowed to the Castro brothers, kissing their blood stained hands and now visiting a country that does not give a damn about him, us or the country he represents.
Obama should have listened to the Cuban president when he said that nothing is going to change in Cuba.
Raul Castro has no respect for Obama or the United States of America; he did not go to the airport to welcome him even if it was “not an official visit.”
