Ducky, Gertrude and 167 are fairly typical of the Communist left. They hyperventilate about Israel as if no other issue in the world exists. They rail about mistreatment of fake indigenous people and ignore serious abuses in the rest of the world. They are especially quiet about human rights violations under communist thugocracies.
Lets see the Duck has trotted out that Cuba has great health care and everyone can read. The problem is that they are free to read what they are told to read. Writers are not given artistic freedom and suffer for their views. Meanwhile, the Duck is so concerned about the USA where farces about killing the current President are produced by his comwads. The Duck is fond of crying about the cancelation of a commie play "Hello my name is Rachel Corrie". I was itending to go and root for the bulldozer, carrying a Tonka version. I even purchased a CAT hat and Bisquick for the event that has become a staple of communist lies. The Israelis in no way ran her over on purpose. However, I shed no tears for the moron who had no business in Gaza and was in violation of US law.
In the book the End of Commitment has the story of two true Cuban believers Carlos Franqui and Herberto Padilla. Franqi was a genuine true believer in social change. He protested the torture in Cuban Prisons and showed evidence to Fidel who approved of it. He protested the abuses in Castros raids against the bomemian sections of Cuba where offenders were made to wear the letter P for Pimp, Prostitute or Pederast. Of course those wearing the letters were abused. I wonder how the Duck would feel about a similar display where Ameicans force Marxists like himself to wear clothing with the letter T for traitor or maybe M for Moron. He seems to approve of this when done to Jews and Christians under Sharia. Oh I forgot about the special taxes the Duck would have to pay as a Marxist, 50% of his salary so that the rest of us don't beat him.
Franqi also witnessed the Sovitization of peasants who just wanted to be left alone.
He witnesses the transformation of Cuba from a place that had one big prison to a prison society. Franqui also notes that the rebels who fled to the Escambray Mountains were ordinary workers and peasants who wanted no part of the workers paradise. However, the Duck still ignores reality as Infidel sends troops to prop up Thugocracies in Angola, Eithiopia and Elsewhere. Lets see the Duck was stating something about intervening in Civil Wars the other day. It seems wherever his Comwads intervene or god forbid win mass murder, repression and refugees follow. Thus the Duck is a good barometer of whom not to support.
Padilla is one of those writers that have been persecuted under Marxist thugocracy.
The far left ( and one Israeli moron who swears he is right wing) like to cry about
McCarthyism and Blacklists to this very day. They seem to think there is a symetry with treasonous advocates for class genocide and theft having to work manual labor
and artists like Feffer and Solomon Michoels who were killed and others who were imprisoned. Nor have the advocates of the left figured out that there was extensive
communist treason, subversion and espionage in the McCarthy period. In fact every defense of the left of the period has been proven false by the Soviet archives. Nor was this a case of leftists not knowing, the lies were maintained for decades.
No doubt the Duck will respond with more talk about excellent health care. The Duck seems to forget that people risk their lives to get away from Cuba. Yet the Duck sees
nothing noble in the Cuban, Vietnamese or other people who have suffered under his Marxist delusions. The Ducks mono focus is on violent fake indigenous people who are part of a society that embodies the worst aspects of Colonialism and Jim Crow.
