Liberal Media Continues To Sanitize Castro’s Dastardly Legacy

-
Roanoke Times, 12-2-2016, Pg 5: Editorial: Cuba and Us
-
-
The editorial started out on a proper note and then became a long convoluted dissertation totally smoking-up the real issues of Castro’s massive human rights abuses including the murder of thousands of political opponents and the torture and imprisonment of tens of thousands of political opponents from his revolution until today.
This sanitizing program is combined with a revisionist view of marginalizing the threats and nuclear-danger from the Khrushchev-Castro Team in a Mutually Assured Destruction military cold-war posture.
Clearly there must be some Liberal-Progressive motivation for the “Castro was really an OK leader” dialogue and his mentor Khrushchev was really OK too.  It’s showing up now in almost all the major Pravda Media outlets..
-
Perhaps the motivation is to somehow gloss-over Obama’s pathetic agreements with Castro to open relations with them without any significant required change to the KGB-type dictatorial militarist Castro regime.
This by the folks who pride themselves on bashing Republicans for not being sensitive and not demanding enough on human rights!
And the highlight is on business!  Since when did Obama give a hoot about business?
-
A really bizarre item in the editorial is:
“Khrushchev was volatile in many ways – he once “supposedly” banged his shoe in a debate at the UN.
-
What is the matter with the editors of this statement?
It wasn’t “supposedly” it was for real and this hostile act was in the context of his threat:
“We will bury You!”

I was a young artillery officer at the time and I can remember it as if it were yesterday.
This from our arch enemy who had his finger on the nuclear war trigger and was the leader that just a few years later installed multiple nuclear-tipped missiles in Cuba just a few minutes flight-time from most of our major cities, that we were helpless to stop once launched.
If the missiles and warheads were not removed during the Cuban-Russian Missile Crisis, a preemptive strike was our only option to protect our people.
-
Apparently the Pravda Media folks think all the cold-war veterans are dead and they are free and enabled to rewrite the history and stark reality of the Cold War without any push-back or challenge.
Have they not seen:
On the Beach
Thirteen Days
The Bedford Incident
Fail Safe
The Day After
-
And haven’t these editors viewed and fawned over the Democrat LBJ nasty Ad launched against Barry Goldwater:

-
As part of his deal with the Castro’s, why didn’t Obama demand and get back from Cuba the US Cop Killers that are basking in the Cuban sun, drinking rum and smoking cigars?

NJ Police Seek Return Of Joanne Chesimard, Fugitive Cop Killer In Cuba
http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/12/18/nj-police-seek-return-of-joanne-chesimard-fugitive-cop-killer-in-cuba/
Joanne Chesimard was convicted of murdering (execution style) Trooper Werner Foerster during a gunfight after being stopped on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973. Trooper James Harper was also seriously injured in the shooting.
Chesimard, whom the FBI has described as a member of the Black Liberation Army, was sentenced to life in prison.
But she escaped in 1979 and eventually ended up in Cuba, where she was granted asylum by Fidel Castro and has been living under the name Assata Shakur.
-
Cuba also granted asylum to three black militants who hijacked an airplane from Albuquerque while being sought for the 1972 murder of New Mexico State Trooper Robert Rosenbloom during a traffic stop.

Charlie Hill continues to live in Cuba. Hill told a Washington Post reporter in 1999 that he had no regrets about killing Rosenbloom, who had a wife and two young daughters.
