    ‘We Don’t Want Communism?’ But if You Did, It’s Time To Apologise!! 


    ————

    At least the Jakarta Post kept its statistics in the realm of reality, in its latest obsessive article about the events of 1965.

    ‘It is believed that at least half a million people were killed.’

    One of them was the notorious totalitarian D.N. Aidit, of the PKI (Indonesian Communist Party) who infamously held up North Korea as his idea of how to run a country. He and his PKI comrades were no agrarian reformers but hard-core bigot reds, so no wonder some of them, so the JP whines, still experience discrimination.

    —-

    One cannot blame children for the evil reflected in their parents’ deeds, but it might have been wiser for DN’s son to keep a low profile, unless he’s prepared to repudiate the satanic ideology that motivated his sire. Instead all he says is that proper reconciliation should be based on a revelation of the truth both from the perpetrators’ side and the victims’ side. The truth revealed could then be passed on to future generations.

    Fair enough, on the face of it.

    But who were the victims?

    Aidit Junior then called on the government to apologize, not to the PKI, but to the victims of the 1965 tragedy.

    But it was the PKI who caused the mass slaughter. Their lying communist propaganda gulled thousands of simple folk into their peasants’ and industrial workers’ front outfits, and it was those poor mugs who got the brunt of the backlash.

    Mind you, not all of the PKI fronts were naive dupes. 

    LEKRA, the ‘intellectual’ gang whose leading light was Pramoedya
    ——-
    That nasty old swine was as viciously intolerant towards freedom-loving Indonesians as the IslamoNazi FPI is today intolerant of Indonesians who believe in religious liberty.

    I’ve referred readers to Tempo, issue May 16-22, 2006 before, but must once more do so, for it covers the evil old Red’s career rather well and explains why some 25 “prominent literary figures and cultural observers” put their distinguished names to a formal submission to the Magsaysay Award Committee in 1995, protesting at that body’s decision to give Pramoedya an award.

    Their reasons were simply stated, viz his unethical role during one of the darkest periods for creativity during the Guided Democracy era, when he led the persecution of artists and literary figures who disagreed with him. (this protest is air-brushed out of most Western references nowadays, though a brief mention is to be found in an otherwise slavishly pro-Pram article in the Economist http://www.economist.com/node/168819 )

    ———–

    Aidit Senior was indeed killed, but plenty of his comrades ran like cockroaches, to the sort of countries where they’d feel at ease, tyrannies in which neither peasants nor workers enjoyed any vestige of liberty.  Places like Red China, and, I imagine, Castro’s Cuba, where evil held sway and still does.

    —–

    Now some of these decrepit traitors have weaselled back, and have still not shown the basic decency to apologise, to repent of the vile ideology they sought to impose on Indonesia fifty years go.

    Not a word of regret from this character –  Haryono, spokesman of Lembaga Perjuangan Rehabilitasi Korban Orde Baru, an NGO working for the rehabilitation of New Order regime victims, said many people had become victims in the 1965 killings, thus it was important for the government to extend an apology.

    Was Haryono a PKI apparatchik?

    The JP sloppily fails to check. But Haryono’s politicised arithmetic makes one wonder. While estimates of those who died in 1965 range from scores of  thousands to a million, this geezer offers a staggering figure  –  the victims actually numbered 45 million.

    HUH?

    Even the JP is moved to note that Haryono did not provide details on where the figure of 45 million came from.

    It sounds as believable as the myth that the Reds were interested in Indonesian workers and peasants, except insofar as they might serve as cannon-fodder in PKI schemes to seize power. 

    In none of the nations around the world enslaved by marxism have the common folk been exalted, except in name only.

    The Reds, in Russia, China and Cuba, established themselves as a privileged ruling class. The PKI was part and parcel of that ideology and would certainly have done the same. Their leaders deserved all they got. Just a shame that so many harmless folk taken in by their lies had to die too.

      More proof that you stand with the likes of the FPI when it comes to issues of social justice. Why don’t you just go out there with your ideological fellow-travelers and attempt to close down a meeting of survivors of this gross violation of human rights and their poor families who are simply calling for the record to be put straight?

        I have no connection whatsoever with Indonesia but Ilike Ross’ blog and before you begin to criticise him, you should read what he has actually said, and what the communist defenders actually said.
        Last month he very forcefully objected to that FPI organisation’s closing down a metting by your fellow-travellers, about a communist called Tan Malaka, whom you mayknow about although I don’t.
        And Ross did not object at all to having the ‘record put straight. ‘
        What he’s objecting to is the demand that Indonesia APOLOGISE to the communists.
        Communists have always wanted to deprive people of their freedoms so if they don’t want to apologise for that objectionable ambition, why would anyone want to apologise to them?

          Thanks for that, Pamela.
          You are correct in your corrections, though I wasn’t going to extend this debate personally.
          The other commies gave real names and email addresses so they can carry on the argument if they like.
          This creep doesn’t, so he’s had his go until he fesses up.

        • Rennie 10:22 pm on April 20, 2016 Permalink

          Yes, I see Ross did condemn the FPI thugs and that’s something to his credit.
          However, his bigotry against communists, and yours, Pamela, is pathetic.
          Communists may put a bridle on some liberties that Western liberals love to shout about, but they gave true economic liberty to millions who had long been oppressed and exploited.
          I know this is a forum for the ultrarightwing so won’t waste more time arguing with you but don’t you think there was more to the 1965 killings than just ‘zapping reds,’ as I suppose Ross would put it?’ .

      Yes it is just the same like you say. The PKI did never care about Indonesia and they did bad things to democracy people. Now it is that they want every body to say sorry to them but they never say sorry to Indonesia for what communism did.
      You write many things that I do not like but this time you write true about PKI and about Pramoedya who was a very bad man.

      I come from Madiun and every Indonesian who is living here must know about PKI who was the traitors in 1948. My grandfather and his generasion fighting for MERDEKA had also to fight the PKI communist when they did uprising against us.
      Indonesia has won freedom but no thanks to PKI who wanted new masters from China instead of old masters from Holland.
      If they ask we forgive them the badness they have done then I will forgive but now they ask for apology and that must make us angry. .

      In 1965 there was real friendship between Muslims and Christians and other religion because they understand communism was enemy of God and also of democracy. It is not so much like that after all this time and it is better if we remember Indonesia beat communism by unity of all the Indonesia people who love freedom.
      So much trouble in our country because inter-faith fighting when we need remember we have more in common than not in common.
      Pramoedya never say sorry till day he die, same like these people this month who tell goverment to say sorry when Presiden Jokowi and all his goverment eventhough not even were born in 1965.
      It does not enter sense for apology today..We must be uniting because our Indonesia has so many problem.

      You have a dinosaur’s mind. You remind me of Reagan telling us that the Vietnam War was a ‘noble cause.’ America should have learned the lesson of Vietnam, as RFK should have never made that speech you love to quote when he called Cuba ‘an imprisoned island.’
      Obama whom you hate has been so much more intelligent, developing relations with Socialist Cuba and even Nixon had to recognise the People’s Republic as the legitimate government of China despite his Cold War mentality which you have not been able to shake off.
      Indonesia could have been a liberated country like China and Cuba because the PKi would have probably won elections and taken power by the ballot.
      Instead there was the bullet, many of them. And violence persists, the breaking up of meetings held to talk about that dark time in Indonesia’s past.

      You will really and truly have upset the communist sympathizers with this one, Ross.
      I’m only commenting because I think you will have provoked a few of them to comment and so my views will add some balance.
      I am no expert on Indonesian history but it would have been a disaster if that populous country had gone the same way as China and Indo-China.
      A massive threat to Australia.
      I am looking at it from an Australian angle but I do think these debates should be for Indonesians to have among themselves but with all the PKI sympathizers taking their case abroad, and people like Max Lane and his marxists here jumping in on the argument, it’s only fair play that you should give a different point of view some space.

      What did communists ever do to you to make you hate them so much?
      President Obama told young people last month that they can work out for themselves whatever they prefer as an economic system, and that shows a tolerant outlook that you would do well to develop, but I don’t think you’re capable of doing that.
      Every time I read your blog, something I try not to do before eating, I just feel sick that anyone in this day and age can hold such conservative views and even more sick that you dare express them publicly
      No wonder you were removed form Facebook.

      As somebody who only reads your blog for the ads, I dontt care about all this politics. But it strikes me as typical Indonesia that when you thunder against the FPI, at least once a week, hardly anybody comments at all.
      Then when you call the PKI names, and they haven’t been around effectively for half a century, the expats (or at least foreigners, here or somewhere else) come down on you like a nuclear strike.
      I’m not sure what to make of that.

    IslamoNazis 'Prohibit' Event – Who Do These Thugs Think They Are? 


    I see in Tempo.com that a performance entitled Tan Malaka Monologue due to be staged at the French Cultural Center ( IFI) in Bandung had to be cancelled.  https://m.tempo.co/read/news/2016/03/24/078756690/fpi-larang-monolog-tan-malaka-pria-minang-yang-hafal-quran

    Why?

    It was ‘prohibited’ by the IslamoNazi FPI, self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front!’ These white-shirt thugs have NO authority whatsoever to prohibit’ anything. In fact, whatever they like to forbid is probably worth having a look at, or, since it was a ‘monologue,’ a listen to!

    The hoodlum gangster group – apparently in concert with other sectarian loutfits, object to Tan Malaka, a man dead for decades, because he was a commie.

    ———-

    Actually, we recorded in a previous post how bad he was, a Communist, an active member of the PKI, killed in 1949, and the Islamists don’t want his ideas resurrected.

    • anti_communism_by_leandrotr
    • Nor indeed would any thinking person, if the plan were to implement them. The PKI is still outlawed here, after their attempted seizure of power in 1965 was thwarted, at great cost in bloodshed.

    .———-

    Head of West Java FPI Dedi Subu said “It is the clear emergence of a new-style communism.”,

    So I probably wouldn’t like listening to the ‘monologue’ very much,’ but that’s not the point.

    It’s the job of courts and police to ‘prohibit’ events, if they are a problem.If the IslamoNazis don’t like the topic, they are free to protest outside with banners and leaflets, explaining why.

    • An easy task, because communism is a sterile and blood-stained ideology, propounded by hypocrites who ride to power on the backs of the poor then instal themselves, like Mao did in China, in palaces, wallowing in luxury.

    The PKI, the Indonesian Communist Party, was a vicious totalitarian gang, just as intolerant as the FPI..

    Since it was not prohibited by any lawful body, then it was the job of the police to ensure that it could go ahead without disruption by malignant fanatics.

    So where were the cops this week?

    I don’t know, but they should have been at the IFI, safeguarding constitutional freedoms.

    I’m sure a bit of research by my local readers will tell us why no law enforcement was on the scene to stomp the jihadist jerks, but in the past there have been shameful incidents of collaboration beiween the Islamonazis and police.   https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/muslim-school-burned-by-angry-crowd-police-enlist-islamonazis-to-counsel-kids/

    Jakarta Post, Yet To Condemn Book-Burning, Calls Now For Freedom? 


    Yesterday the Jakarta Post had a barely coherent piece about ‘gays,’ Grammar and ‘Gays!’ – Poor Old Jakarta Post!  but embedded in it was a fairly odd definition of communism as ‘an economic system.’

    Jakarta Post Lets Oz Red Urge Show Trial for Morrison

    Today, I came across the latest paper edition of that newspaper, in North Jakarta. A quick glance at its front page revealed what should surely have been designated as an opinion piece, but appeared to  be masquerading as news, in which these folowing gems of objective reporting were typical.

    The involvement of the police and their apparent favoring of intolerant religious and ultranationalist groups that consider leftist movements to be supporting communism has been raising some eyebrows.

    Whose eye-brows?

    Jakarta Post hacks, who fail to examine whether or not those ‘leftist movements’ are or are not ‘supporting communism?

    ——

    That’s an important question, which needs to be put directly to the Turn Left gang – do they or do they not, each and every one of them, repudiate the satanic marxist creed or do they not?

    Only when they have done so can we begin to take seriously the JP’s hyperbolic hogwash.

    Which goes on and on….

    Imposing restrictions on the freedom of speech, as state apparatuses did with the Turn Left Festival, is both mindboggling and irrelevant nowadays when the country prides itself as being the world’s third largest democracy. – http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/03/15/ban-festival-reminiscent-authoritarianism.html

    Whose mind is boggled? No names, especially not the JP author’s!

    Irrelevant? Well, that’s a point of view! 

    And since there’s no author’s name attached, we must assume it’s that editorial clique whose loud pretensions about freedom of expression have rung so hollow since the JP’s parent company, Gramedia, openly collaborated with Islamist fanatics in a Hitlerian book-burning atrocity. Yes, the very same intolerant religious gang that the nameless JP scribbler abhors!

    Vietnam continues to violate the basic fundamental rights and freedoms of its people living within its border and in Cambodia. In Kampuchea-Krom, the Khmer-Krom people are prohibited to learn their true history and call their homeland by their original names.

    Such action clearly demonstrates to the world that Vietnam does not uphold its commitment to the promotion and protection of human rights, and thus should have its position as a member of the UN Human Rights Council be reconsidered.  http://www.khmerkrom.org/kkf-press-releases/559-vietnam-humanrights-council-obligation

    Happy Australia Day, Despite Baird and Morrison’s Divisive Discord! 


    It’s Australia Day, and I hope all my readers across the Commonwealth enjoy it!

    But what a let-down that Morrison has turned out to be.

    I watched him last night, this Australian of the Year (chosen not by the people but by a panel of people who no doubt regard themselves as ‘the great and good’ aka the elite) a military man being honoured not for great victories against Australia’s enemies but for his commitment to ‘diversity.’

     Morrison and Turnbull, two of a kind?

    Regardless of his views, and the less I say about those the better, you’d expect him to express sentiments, for this day at least, that would command broad support from all across the spectrum.

    Instead, he opted to call for a republic, about the most divisive issue imaginable.

    Although I’m a monarchist, I have always said the decision must be a matter for Australians only. There’s a time and place for the debate to take place.

    Not on the eve of Australia Day.

    Much the same for that Baird, more so in fact.

    The New South Wales state premier showed both malice and wilful ignorance in his recent rant about immigration, showing contempt both for patriots and for decent people who take their turn in the queue for admission to Oz by suggesting that Australia is at risk of losing its character to anti-immigration politics.

    Most Australians are not immigrants, but most can examine their family trees and find immigrants  somewhere in the last hundred years. Recent intakes include the East and Central Europeans fleeing communism after 1945, and South East Asians escaping the same evil ideology after 1975.

They have overwhelmingly embraced their Australian identity, as is the duty of every decent migrant.

    What those who engage in  ‘anti-immigration’ campaigns object to are, surely, economic migrants, who are not ‘refugees’ at all, and the disgusting, disloyal brand of bigots who arrive in Oz but refuse to adapt.

      Many of these undesirables want Australian law to be superseded by a backward code rooted in sexist discrimination against women.

    Baird – and Morrison, given his vaunted reputation as a champion of women’s rights – would have been better advised to address their remarks to scum like that, who ought to be deported to places their subversive beliefs belong.

    Which ain’t Australia.

    Viva Venezuela! 


    Haven’t given due attention to Marine Le Pen’s successes across France, simply because I’m waiting for the second round of elections on Sunday, but mustn’t overlook a more distant vindication of the democratic process, that in Venezuela, where power to the people – or back to the people – came a step closer this week.

    Not only did the coalition of anti-communist parties win the parliamentary election there, but it’s now confirmed they have a two-thirds majority, which gives them even greater leverage against the red regime which has just about bankrupted the country.

    It won’t be easy to dislodge the heirs of the late and unlamented Comrade Chavez..

    Viva Maria! Don’t Forget Venezuela’s Red Terror! 

    . …but we must wish the forces of freedom well.

    As for the regime’s allies in Havana, I suppose Obama’s buddies there will be even more resolute in resisting democracy in Cuba. They know that free and fair elections would consign the Castro despotism to the dustbin of history.

    Again, one can only hope – and hope also that the next American President, whoever he is, will roll back the sell-out policies embracd by the current occupant of the White House.

    No further concrete info from Teguh, nor the Jakarta Globe, which adds that these unspecified groups of people had managed to steer discussions at the book fair into a direction that the Indonesian Foreign Affairs Ministry considered undesirable…

    But Teguh’s further words give us a clue. 
    He said his commission had received complaints from embassy staff and diplomats abroad about Indonesia’s representation at the fair.
    And back to the Jakarta Globe, which plays detective in the absence of any positive ID from Teguh.
    Presumably, Teguh was insinuating that there had been unease among Indonesian officials about the prominent role at the event of books dealing with the 1965 anti-communist purges..while it was supposed to have been all about promoting Indonesia as “17,000 islands of imagination.

    pkiposter PKI – a violent thug party
    As we all know, the PKI, Communist party of Indonesia, is outlawed here, a direct consequence of their attempted ‘kudeta’ in 1965.
    The public in general are fiercely anti-communist still, as we saw during the Presidential election last year, when attempts were made to smear President Jokowi as pro-communist.
    This was obviously done to harm his campaign, and his campaign’s energetic – and successful – effort at refutation indicate the electorate’s anti-communist outlook.
    Since the Reds were importing weaponry in vast quantities in 1965, supplied by Mao’s marxist tyranny, there’s little doubt that the PKI threat was very real.
    Yet there is constant agitation, spurred along by both the Jakarta Globe and its ‘rival,’ the Jakarta Post, to rehabilitate the totalitarian hypocrites in that party.
    ..
    This is dressed up as concern for those individuals either wrongly accused of communism or victimised purely because they had kin in the PKI or its various affiliated front organisations, like LEKRA, the ‘intellectual’ gang whose leading light was Pramoedya…

    I’ve referred readers to Tempo, issue May 16-22, 2006 before, but must once more do so, for it covers the evil old Red’s career rather well and explains why some 25 “prominent literary figures and cultural observers” put their distinguished names to a formal submission to the Magsaysay Award Committee in 1995, protesting at that body’s decision to give Pramoedya an award.

    =

    Pramoedya the Red

    =

    Their reasons were simply stated, viz his unethical role during one of the darkest periods for creativity during the Guided Democracy era, when he led the persecution of artists and literary figures who disagreed with him. (this protest is air-brushed out of most Western references nowadays, though a brief mention is to be found in an otherwise slavishly pro-Pram article in the Economist http://www.economist.com/node/168819 )

    ...but neither of those ‘revisionist’ papers seems able or willing to make a sufficently clear distinction between the above categories – who do indeed deserve sympathy – and vicious old PKI hacks who have never repented their evil ideology.
    We’ve noted this problem often enough.
    ===============================

    It’s a free country and if the JG and the JP want to lament the woes that befell communist traitors, they are entitled to do so.

    As they are entitled to afford present-day foreign marxist malignants a platform to advance their causes. 

    Jakarta Post Lets Oz Red Urge Show Trial for Morrison! 

    However, in this case, if the allegations reflected in the JG report are correct, it’s not just pinko journos but government funds that have been enlisted in the revisionist cause.
    If the theme of the state-sponsored stand in Frankfurt was designated as boosting tourism, then stocking it with books by left-leaning authors was totally out of order.
    Not so long ago, we posted on the claims by various Islamist fanatic sources that the communist menace is alive and well.  
    Geriatrics V IslamoNazis – Jakarta 1965 – Whose Victims Were They? 
    I treated those ranters with some degree of scepticism, partly because of who they are, and partly because, knowing plenty of ordinary Indonesian folk, it seemed highly unlikely the PKI or any new version thereof, could ever gain a foothold here.
    But the news from that book-fair in Germany does make me wonder – and it has plainly made a lot of Indonesians wonder as well.

    People Power Wins in Poland – It’s Them Wicked Populists! 


    So Law and Justice have an absolute majority of 232 seats in the 460-seat Polish parliament.

    00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000


    • Beata Szydlo, coal-miner’s daughter, now Poland’s new PM, addressing patriotic workers 
    • ———-
    • congratulationssuperjob
    • ———

    How come?

    Law and Justice has promised to lower the retirement age, boost welfare, and cut taxes for small businesses, while raising taxes for banks and supermarket chains.

    Mildly leftish, some might say…BUT!

    Its campaign also included populist elements!

    Meaning what? The above promises obviously were calculated to appeal to the people, so are they not populist?

    ————————

    • LIBERAL-MEDIA-e1315327567357-300x211

    No, because in journalese, populist refers only to policies that appeal to the people but of which the pinko journos disapprove. eg. depicting Civic Platform as being servile to Germany, feeble on Russia, and putting Poles at risk of “diseases” brought by Syrian refugees under an EU relocation programme.      

    https://euobserver.com/political/130840

    Basic common sense, most Poles presumably thought, and why not.

    But one aspect not given due prominence, in my view, is that for the first time since the Red Army installed the Communist Quisling regime at the end of WW2, the Reds have NO parliamentary presence.

    • anti_communism_by_leandrotr

    An admirable conclusion of the revolution which Solidarnosc began in 1980 and for which I marched in solidarity through London all those years ago.

    Meanwhile Merkel’s cultural marxist lap-dog hacks have wasted no time in commencing shrill hate-paeans against the resurgent nation.

    German broadcaster ARD accused Kaczynski of “hate speech” on refugees…

    • truththenewhatespeechcorrectspellinig
    • And that’s what will happen to any statesman or woman who takes a stand against the undesirable lying ‘migrants.’

     

    Let’s hope the Poles rally behind their honourable leaders and set an example for all Europeans to follow.

    Is Castro-Symp Sanders Wilfully Ignorant? 


    I haven’t paid much attention to the US elections for a while.

    Yet although everyone is repelled by the hypocrisy and mendacity of Clinton, there’s always a tendency to give outsiders like Bernie Sanders the benefit of the doubt…

    ———————-

    ————————

    …yeah, he’s a nutter, but at least he’s honest.

    Not anymore.

    The man is clearly well-educated and into politics in a big way, so either he’s deliberately lying or is wilfully ignorant when it comes to Cuba.

    All the more when you notice he’s been laying into Clinton for her hypocritical u-turn on pervert weddings.

    Sanders called her out, rightly, for trying to rewrite history over her wriggling on that issue… .http://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2015/10/26/sanders-accuses-hillary-of-rewriting-history-in-her-support-for-doma-n2070902?

    oooooooooo

    So howzabout Sanders’ own efforts to re-write Cuban history?

    ———

    In 1985, Bernie Sanders went to Nicaragua, where he was much taken with the marxist regime. But his highest praise was reserved for the despotism just across the Caribbean.

    “In 1959 everybody was totally convinced that Fidel Castro was the worst guy in the world and all of the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro…They forgot that he educated their kids, gave their kids healthcare, totally transformed the society…

    ..So they expected this tremendous uprising in Cuba, but it never came.”

    —————-

    • fidel2
    • However, Humberto Fontova can be relied on to keep us up to date with American folly and deception about ‘that imprisoned island,’ as RFK accurately described it.
    • As Senor Fontova points out,
    • ………In fact, the only genuinely popular rebellion and genuine guerrilla war in Cuba in the 20th Century was waged against the regime co-founded by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara….

    anti_communism_by_leandrotr

    • …This ferocious guerrilla war, waged during the early 60’s only 90 miles from U.S. shores mostly by Cuban rednecks might have taken place on the planet Pluto for all you’ll read about it in the mainstream media.
    • You see, this anti-Stalinist rebellion, involving ten times the number of rebels, ten times the number of casualties, and lasting twice as long as the puerile skirmish against Batista, found no New York Times’ “reporter” anywhere near Cuba’s hills. And as Che Guevara snickered in his diaries:

    “Much more valuable than recruits for our guerrilla force, were American media recruits to export our propaganda.”

    And as Fidel Castro snickered while visiting New York Times headquarters in April 1959 and pinning a medal on their Latin American reporter Herbert Matthews;

    “To our American friend Herbert Matthews with gratitude. Without your help, and without the help of The New York Times,the Revolution in Cuba would never have been.”

    Having quoted RFK above, it remains for me to let the Cuban patriot writer remind readers how his elder brother pledged to the Soviets that the U.S. immediately pull the rug out from under Cuba’s valiant and desperate freedom- fighters.

    Raul Castro himself admitted that at the time of the Missile Crisis his troops and their Soviet advisors were up against 179 different “bands of bandits” as he labeled the thousands of Cuban anti-Communist rebels then battling savagely and virtually alone in Cuba’s countryside, with small arms shipments from their compatriots in south Florida as their only lifeline.

    communism tyranny

    Kennedy’s Missile-Crisis deal with Khrushchev cut this lifeline. It’s a tribute to the power of Castroite mythology that even with all this information a matter of public record for over half a century the academic/media mantra (gloat, actually) still has Castro,” defying ten U.S. Presidents!”

    000000000000000000

    As for Sanders’ other nonsenses, the same old hogwash we hear about Cuba’s wondrous health-care, here’s just one refutation of the lies spun to the gullible by the monstrous tyranny in Havana.

    Dr. Juan Felipe García, MD, of Jacksonville, Fla., interviewed several recent doctor defectors from Cuba. Based on what he heard, he reported the following: 
    “The official Cuban infant-mortality figure is a farce. Cuban pediatricians constantly falsify figures for the regime. If an infant dies during its first year, the doctors often report he was older. Otherwise, such lapses could cost him severe penalties and his job.

      You are a friend to Free Cuba. I wish more people knew about the Castro dictatorship and how it has ruined Cuban prosperity.
      Please continue to spread Fontova’s writing.
