When I started this it was with the intention of exposing the truth about Castro. It has turned into much more of an expose of the media and very prominent people. Nothing is as it seems and the Main Stream Media are largely responsible for the incredible level of ignorance displayed by the pubic on almost every issue of consequence today. Did anyone see the evening news showing Al Sharpton declaring that Castro was"one of the three most impressive people I have ever met" and that there were "absolutely no human rights violations in Cuba?”
How about Bishop Desmond Tutu? Surely that paragon of virtue on personal rights can see the truth and speak out? No….apparently he wants unfettered commerce with Castro. Then there is that paragon of integrity and virtue Jesse Jackson who bellowed "Viva Fidel" and "Viva Che Guevara" with raised fists declaring “long live our cry of freedom”! In spite of a well documented terrible civil rights record...against black Cubans. Can we assume that he isn't aware of that? Or shall we assume that his real focus is on other things!
There’s more, but the most important question this must raise in anyone with the ability to think for themselves is this; why isn’t this common knowledge? Why wasn’t this a primary story on the evening news? The MSM has these people on the news moralizing about all sorts of things. Why? Does anyone besides me find this to be strange?
'¡Cuba Si! - Arizona No!' Says Mexican President Felipe Calderón
By Humberto Fontova
Mexican President Felipe Calderón can hardly contain his revulsion and rage against Arizona's SB 1070. He's "deeply troubled," reports the Associated Press, over a law he denounces as "discriminatory and racist," not to mention "a dire threat to the whole Hispanic-American population." This new Arizona law "opens the door to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement," sputters the Mexican president.
Indeed, this "threat to Hispanics" and these "abuses in law enforcement" have been ongoing for years. The Associated Press carried a story where one Maria Elena Gonzalez reported how female migrants were "forced to strip by abusive police officers, supposedly to search them, but the purpose is to sexually abuse them." Jose Ramos, 18, reported "that extortion by border police occurs at every stop on their migratory route, until migrants are left penniless and begging for food."
According to this Associated Press story, "Others said they had seen migrants beaten to death by police, their bodies left near the railway tracks to make it look as if they had fallen from a train." "If you're carrying any money, they take it from you," said Carlos Lopez. "Federal, state, local police -- all of them shake you down. If you're on a bus, they pull you off and search your pockets, and if you have any money, they keep it all and say, get out of here."
All of the above "hate" and "abuses in law enforcement" as reported by the Associated Press befell Central American migrants who enter Mexico. So perhaps Mexican President Calderón knows what he's talking about?
