    Gaystapo Agenda Faltering? Hope Glimmers In Cuba! 

    It’s World Hug-A-Maladjust Day!


    AKA ‘the International Day Against Homophobia!

    So this little bit of news is intriguing.

    According to the BBC, decent Cubans will this year be spared the revolting sight of a conga line of sexual deviants cavorting down Havana’s thoroughfares.


    Praise be for small mercies!

    But it’s all very curious, if not to say queer, because the story below the BBC headline…..

    Cuba cancels annual Conga Against Homophobia march –


    ’In a Facebook post, the state-run National Centre for Sex Education (CENESEX) blamed “new tensions in the international and regional context” ‘ as the explanation, which tells us absolutely nothing.

    Unfortunately, other aberrant activities will go ahead, but if the suggestion by the anonymous BBC correspondent – that the cancellation is due to popular resistance, as shown some months ago ‘when Cuba was set to approve same-sex marriage under a new constitution, but removed the clause after protests…

    …after an outcry from religious groups…




    The new Communist dictator is notoriously pro-homo – his take on perv-weddings was that they were “part of eliminating any type of discrimination in society.”

    Not just Marxist but Cultural Marxist!

    The late and unlamented Castro Brothers had also, for years, been promoting the ‘gay’ agenda, but suddenly we read that the government backtracked…

     “…in compliance with the policy of the Party, the State and the Revolution.”

    That CENESEX outfit is run by dead tyrant Raul Castro’s daughter Mariela, another infamous pro-deviant agitator, so the other pervy activities going ahead indicates she is obviously fighting a rear-guard action – I avoid any humorous play on the words ‘rear-guard!’

    Local maladjusts are up in arms, one whining on Facebook that –

    “The enemies of a more diverse and progressive Cuba will be happier now,” he wrote on Facebook. “Not allowing [the parade] is a signal that… we are not welcome.”

    Needless to say, the BBC quotes him and another individual evidently not as happy as they are ‘gay…’


    bbc propag

    …BUT not a single one of the millions of decent Cubans who must be delighted.

    Yet we should not be surprised by this slanted reporting from a state broadcaster itself infested with the type of creatures who would likely love to join the cancelled conga, and whose Latin American correspondent’s proclivities  we identified some while back.

    Courageous Cubans Make Reds Drop So-Called 'Gay' So-Called 'Marriage!' 

    We all know that the Communist regime brutally imposed on Cuba by the Castro brothers for over half a century is one of the most cruelly despotic in the world.


    communism tyranny

    So the latest news out of that imprisoned island testifies to the astounding courage of the Cuban people.

    Cubans who ordinarily shy from open criticism of the government spoke out in large numbers against the proposed constitutional Article 68 promoting gay marriage during public consultations on the draft constitution throughout the year…



    …. State media said that Cubans had made 192,408 comments on Article 68, with the majority asking to eliminate it.



    This is despite the fact that the current dictator Raoul Castro’s daughter is infamously pro-pervert –  Cuba’s highest-profile advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual rights… 

    But don’t rejoice too loudly or too soon.




    Cuban Communists today, as much as German Nazis in the Thirties, include many aggressive aberrants in their ranks. 

    Francisco Rodriguez, a Communist Party member and gay blogger known as “Paquito de Cuba,” said simply eliminating any reference to the participants in a marriage is an acceptable compromise that will focus gay activists on campaigning for changes in the national legal code that would allow gay marriage.

    In other words, the queers’ insatiable quest to erase traditional decencies has most definitely NOT been permanently thwarted.

    “This was a side step,” he said. “It’s a solution. Not ‘between a man and a woman’ or ‘between two people.’ Now is when it all begins.”

    And if, God forbid, they ever succeed in redefining marriage, then their next objective will surely be ‘gay’ adoption – the repulsive system whereby defenceless children are consigned to the custody and control of pervert households.

    Stand firm, Cubans, and be prepared for the battles ahead.

    Today, Let There Be No Glorification Of That Evil Psycho! 

    October 9th, 1967…fifty years ago, so no wonder I can’t recall what I was doing that day, although, being a lot younger than I am now, I bet I was having fun.

    And I doubt I was even aware of the fact that a brutal Communist terrorist, Che Guevara…



    …was put down in Bolivia, since it probably wasn’t reported till at least a day or so later.

    God knows he got what was coming to him.

    If anyone doubts that, just go back and read a little of Cuban patriot Humberto Fontova’s writings, which I quoted a couple of years ago.

    “When you saw the beaming look on Che’s face as the victims were tied to the stake and blasted apart by the firing squad,” said a former Cuban political prisoner Roberto Martin-Perez… “you saw there was something seriously, seriously wrong with Che Guevara.”


    • “My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any vencido that falls in my hands!” 



    •  …as Che Guevara snickered in his diaries:

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

    • …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.”

    • And let’s also not forget the heroic Cuban resistance…

    • 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


    And let’s never forget the continuing lies of the regime Guevara served.

    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.

    Just be glad Guevara was taken out all those years ago, and regret that the Castro Brothers did not share the same fate.

    Aliens Ice-Cold In Serbia? Ship ‘Em To Ecuador! 

    So now we’re expected to feel sorry for a thousand Afghan and Pakistani men feeling the cold in Serbia…
    ….a country to which they were never invited and in which, according to the BBC News I just heard, they’re only squatting whilst planning how to gate-crash the sovereign borders of Hungary, or Croatia, or other unwilling host nations.
    out with them

    Sod those phoney ‘refugees!’ Refugee crisis: Afghanistan ruled safe enough

    Let them go home if they don’t like the weather.
    Or do they expect civilised countries not only to kow-tow culturally to aliens…

    ….but even alter their climates to suit crimmigrants?
    But wait!

    We have news of a country that has won words of praise from the pro-parasite UNHCR.

    First though, I need to explain how I got this information, lest I be accused of spreading CNN-style ‘fake-news.’
    Have a look at a familiar evil face, an SOB currently toasting in Hell, but honoured with this inspiring pic by a red rag-site called Telesur…
    …which, if you hadn’t heard, is a multi-state funded, pan-Latin-American terrestrial and satellite television network sponsored by the governments of Venezuela, Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Uruguay, and Bolivia.
    Telesur is a swamp of propaganda.
    It publishes tantrum-esque tirades from creeps who hate European people prepared to resist invasion…
    Gambar terkait
    I was trying to find an illustration of ‘red hate!’
    ….like last year’s demented diatribe demanding an end to Europe’s Racist and Murderous Migration Regime…
    No surprise, given the ghastly bigot reds who fund Telesur!

    Venezuela is run by a nasty far-left regime whose contempt for democracy we have covered recently.

    Cuba, of course, is Latin America’s last amd most long-lasting dictatorship –  Mendacious Michael Moore and the Heroic ‘Wimps’ He Slandered  –  and, while I don’t know much about Uruguay, I do know that the others are also far-left.
    A new Ecuadorean law provides a progressive and humanitarian example that Europe — and the world — could learn from.

    No, that’s not what the UNHCR said, – it’s an example of Telesur bias. But no worries, it does reflect assertions of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, who has singled out Ecuador’s newly-passed Human Mobility Law as a model for protecting the rights of migrants and refugees.

    It was passed unanimously in the National Assembly last week…

    So if nobody in Ecuador minds legislating insanity, I don’t feel bad about saying that everyone in the wretched socialist republic should suffer the consequences.

    “UNHCR, in particular, applauds the provision in the law which confers refugees a migratory status as residents, favoring their full integration and thus allowing them to contribute to Ecuador’s development.”


    Let’s tell UNHCR to round up all the ingrates in Serbia, and all across Europe, and let The Donald corral all Obama’s illegals, and start shipping them south.


    I gather it’s nice and warm down there.


    They ought to like it better than Serbia.

      If Ecuador is stupid enough to open its doors to these then that’s where they should go. .

      You make a very good secondary point with your reference to the Cubans in America as REAL refugees.

      First of all, they or their parents were fleeing tyranny and a red terror directed against them as against all Cuban democrats.
      As we know, before the communists took over, Cuba was a country of net immigration. It was a prosperous country so people didn’t want to leave.

      After Castro took over, when they did flee, they went to the nearest safe country. Not many tried to use the USA as a stepping stone to reach other countries.
      And I cannot find any 1960s news of them setting fire to accommodation or raping the women ( or boys) of their host country.
      A contrast.

      It’s typical of you and your far-right fan club in this comments column that you can’t give Fidel Castro any credit for all those years he ruled Cuba.
      He didn’t hold the kind of elections that we have in Western countries because he wasn’t prepared to let all the good that the revolution had achieved be swept away.
      Why should he have?
      Your kind of ‘democracy’ is producing one disaster after another, Brexit, Trump and as you keep reminding us the possible far-right success in Austria next month and Le Pen in France next year.

      On second thoughts, I can see why you object so strongly to Castro for preventing that level of disaster in his country.

    In Turdistan, Decent Muslims Protest Junior’s Jihad Jaunt! 

    I don’t cover much news from Canada these days.

    I must be candid and admit this is quite simply due to my revulsion over the fact that, after half a lifetime, there’s once more a Turdo residing at 24 Sussex Drive, Ottawa – that’s the Prime Minister’s Official Residence.


    • The evil Pierre Elliot Trudeau, once a Nazi fellow-traveller, then later Communist Castro’s beloved comrade, did a very effective job of destroying the Dominion with his malevolent multiculturalism…
    • ——–


    …and his Charter, which has made Canada an infinitely less free country than it had previously been, spawning a network of gestapoid ‘rights commissions’ used by left-liberals to torment and silence patriots.

    Turdo Senior is also remembered for how he sent off murderous FLQ terrorists to a safe haven in the enslaved island his comrade Castro ruled.


    • JustinTrudeau


    Now we have his repulsive son, Turdo Junior, in power and just as welcoming to terror swine, embracing the worst kind of Islamist fanatics – CAIR’s Canada branch likes them, so they must be very, very bad.


    He’s now apparently heading off to a grisly get-together whose sponsor was stripped of its federal charity status last year for supporting Hamas, the outlawed terrorist organization.http://conservativefans.com/2016/10/28/justin-trudeau-defends-his-decision-to-attend-islamic-conference-sponsored-by-organization-linked-to-hamas/

    This should be no surprise, to anyone who knows of Turd-Boy’s record.

    Canada’s Enemy Within – Will Turdeau “Have To Look at The Root Causes?” 

    But it’s important that decent Canadians protest loudly.

    The sectarian conclave should be subjected to a mass demo, a picket to expose the Enemy Within involved to public indignation.

    The Conservative Opposition has not even gotten around to electing a new leader after Stephen Harper quit on his election defeat a year ago! Don’t expect much from them.

    But thank God for Canada’s honourable Muslims.


    On Thursday, the Muslim Canadian Congress said it had sent letters to interim Liberal leader Bob Rae and Irwin Cotler, the party’s Justice and Human Rights critic, asking them to encourage Mr. Trudeau to skip the convention.

    The MCC is a shining example of good citizenship.

    Again, I quote their founder, Tarek Fatah, who, in the words below, was talking of another Turdo Junior trip, but his words then are just as relevant today.

    As Tarek says, Turdeau’s hosts represent therole model for ISIS, Hamas, al-Qaida and the Taliban!” Fatah said the Liberal leader would have been better off “denouncing jihad, Sharia and Jew-hatred that is the staple lecture at these mosque sermons.”


    Tarek Tarek


    “For him to pretend this is about meeting with people with whom he disagrees is intellectual dishonesty and playing ethnic politics to the advantage of those who seek Canada’s destruction along with the rest of European civilization, secularism, gender equality and individual liberty.”

      I have been following your commendable resistance to this Jakarta Post campaign and must congratulate you on your latest chapter! Your quotations from Senor Fontova’s writings are always welcome reading.

      I too suffer a wave of nausea when I see some teenager wearing those Che Guevara tee-shirts, even although 90% of them very probably have no idea of his maniac record.
      A real shame they don’t use that picture of Cardinal Mindszenty, who unlike Guevara was both good and brave, a prisoner of conscience who, you would think, is a much better role model for the young Catholics in that Atma Jaya University.

      What is wrong with the editorial board at the Jakarta Post?
      I suppose most of them are far too young to even remember 1965 and they only have a red-rose tinted version from their parent’s generation to base their beliefs about what it was all about. Indonesia was lucky to escape PKI rule. It would have been at least as bad as what happened in Vietnam after 1975. The Post would most certainly not be publishing criticism of the government if Mr. D N Aidit had gotten control of the country.

      It makes me think they’ve picked up their bias from university teachers and so your post does answer my question.That’s what is wrong with them.
      It’s the same in our Canadian colleges, lecturers so far twisted to the left that they can hardly stand up straight.,

    ‘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.


    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 22:22 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.

        Camilla, are you nuts?
        Communism is a hell of a lot more than an economic system. Concentration camps, show-trials, no free speech, go on strike get shot, do you know nothing of modern history?
        So conservatives should not get to speak publicly for what we beileve in?
        You fit right into the communist way, and I don’t feel sick, just sorry for you!. .

      So communists are not human?.
      You are a heartless monster!

      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.
