29 June 2018. ENJOY LIFE! Comandante Fidel Did… So Should You

________________________

Some people think that they have to be serious and earnest all the time. Comandante Fidel disagreed with them. In this photo from 1960, Fidel took a break from making the Revolution and went fishin’. He landed himself a 25-kilo marlin, lookit that! Now, there was a man who had his priorities straight… he knew when to work (and work hard) and when to relax (utterly and completely). Steve… this one’s for you… now, go and do likewise… grab a fishin’ pole and a cooler full of brewskies and enjoy the summer!

You’d be interested to know that Patriarch Kirill and Comandante Fidel were good and close friends. His Holiness sent a beautiful letter of condolence to the Castro family. He made an oligarch-loving rightwing cleric deliver it to the Cuban Embassy… and made the creepo-supremo smile when he did so… now, that’s REVENGE…

22 April 2018. It’s Still the Island of Freedom

________________________

It’s interesting to note that al-Jazeera ran a critical piece on the new Cuban President, an attack piece on Nicaragua, and outright lies on Hungary. By the way, it doesn’t report on Honduras, where there’s open American interference in the local politics. Although it often posts good material, this site is often a lapdog for US foreign policy… don’t forget, American troops occupy Bahrain and they could topple its ruling kleptocratic régime in a heartbeat. Have a care with this source.

The new Cuban President is its first leader born after the Revolution (1960), which means that he’s lived all his life in socialist Cuba and knows that it can survive American economic and political pressure. He’s the son of a worker and a schoolteacher, which means that he didn’t grow up in privilege. He’s worthy of our support.

Russia SLAMS Trump’s Cuba policy

Russia supports the legacy of Comrade Fidel and respects Cuba’s socialist vision

________________________

The MID RF expressed solidarity with Cuba and cautioned against a return to “Cold War rhetoric”. It condemned moves by the Trump Administration to reimpose a ban on Americans travailing to Cuba as well as a likely return to many previously lifted sanctions dropped during Barack Obama’s historic thaw with Havana. Trump came out with hardline policies on Cuba in a lengthy campaign-style speech from Miami, home to many anti-Communist Cubans. The MID RF released a condemnatory statement saying that the USA’s “arrogant style of doing business with Cuba is pointless”. It also said that if the USA fully returns to the era of embargo, blockade, and sanctions, the USA would be totally out of step with the expressed will of the UN General Assembly. Russia reaffirmed its position on Cuba in the following way:

We reaffirm our unwavering solidarity with Cuba… a friendly peace-loving country, an authoritative member of the international community, which has a recognised constructive role in Latin America and in world affairs.

Moscow and Havana have been close ever since the Cuban Revolution of 1959, relations were somewhat strained in the 1990s but have seen become close and fruitful again under President Putin. In many ways, this is the clearest sign yet that Trump intends to run for President in 2020. Republicans long used the issue with Cuba to cultivate votes among anti-Communist Cubans living in the important state of Florida. Trump’s Cuba policy is likely nothing more than an attempt to win future votes in an important US state.

The MID RF reaffirmed Russia’s support for the Island of Freedom and its socialist vision. Those who say that Russia is “conservative” can eat shit and die!

Comrade Fidel on REAL Human Rights

00 melville on the poor 151115

____________________________________

There’s often talk of human rights, but it’s also necessary to talk of the rights of humanity. Why should some people walk barefoot, so that others can travel in luxurious cars? Why should some live for thirty-five years, so that others can live for seventy years? Why should some be miserably poor so that others can be hugely rich? I speak on behalf of the children in the world who don’t have a piece of bread. I speak on the behalf of the sick that have no medicine, of those denied their rights to life and human dignity.

Fidel Castro Ruz

Address to the UN General Assembly, 1979

Editor:

Note well that the Western poseurs want us to feel sorry for the rich and bloated… and to kick aside the poor and destitute. Indeed, the “conservative” mindset is unutterably and irredeemably evil… the worst being the so-called “neocons” and “paleocons”. The former believe in violence and rapine in foreign parts; the latter believe in violence and rapine confined to the domestic sphere. Note well that the so-called “paleocons” all defend the Confederacy… a polity that committed political suicide because it wouldn’t abolish human chattel slavery.

Comrade Fidel kept his word and do note how restrained his funeral was; it was without needless pomp and without public puffery. It was as modest as the man himself was. You can emulate Comrade Fidel or you can emulate Donald Trump… it’s clear to me that decency calls out for only one of those named… it sure isn’t “The Donald”…
