Communist seem to think that no matter how long a lie is repeated people will believe it. The other day our Marxist hack proclaimed Julius Rosenberg and specifically Ethel Rosenberg innocent. Sonia corrected the mindless Marxists by reminding him that the Venona intercepts indicate Ethel was clearly involved. The sad part is that the Rosenbergs could have remained alive by talking. However, they decided to orphan their choldren for Stalin.
The far left used the Rosenberg case to divert attention from the Slansky show trial.
Over the years countless books articles all have been dedicated to a subject that was obviously false. This is an example of Communists perpetuating a myth they knew was false from the outset. This is also an example of why Communists do not belong in higher education. Years after Rigoberta Menchu's book has been proven a fraud it is still used in colleges.
This is paraphrasing of a conversation with Communist types
Beakerkin: Cuba is a totalitarian police state with policital prisoners and a track record of sending mercenaries abroad.
Marxist Clown: Cuba has great health care. Don't you care about the poor.
B: The same great heath care placed homosexuals and political prisoners in mental hospital. Cuba still offered labotomies long after it was stopped in the West.
MC: Cuba has improved litteracy.
B: Yes now everyone can read what the party line of the day tells the to read. Have they allowed people the freedom to think for theselves.
MC: I visited Cuba and everything was fine. I stayed in a luxury hotel.
B; Nazis took people exactly like you to Theriesenstadt. The experience at Theriesenstadt was not indicative of what was going on at Aushwitz.
MC: So you want Cuba to go back to the Batista days where it was used as Americas brothel.
B: There are more prostitutes in Havana today than in the Batista era. It would seem that the desire for hard currency trumps Marxist dogma. Lets have a date when Batista can not be used as an excuse for forty years of abusing humanity.
MC: Cuba has great health care and you don't care about the people.
B: These are the same people that Fidel will not allow to leave. People risk death to get away from Communism.
MC: You are so McCarthyite.
B: If you like Fidel so much why don't you move there. Maybe you can live next to Communist Convicted Cop Killer and terrorist Joanne Chesimard.
These people know the party lines are lies but they repeat them day after day. They pretend that Communism in Europe is a different animal from that in Cuba. The Communism in Europe was Stalinist and that of China is Moaist and Pol Pot was a nationalist so he couldn't have been a Communist.
Great News those who want to hear the truth about Cuba can turn to the Babalublog.
They have an excellent blog radio show and some odd theme music. If you want to skip the music the show starts around three minutes or so. I listened to the last two shows and it is very interesting.
