THE DEVIL AND LA GRANDE CUCARACHA DE CUBA
Whether he lives or whether he dies, Castro is going to fall soon. For too many years the Cubans in the U.S. (and in Cuba as well) have based their hopes on a free Cuba by waiting for the day for him to die of old age. That's not the way it is done. That is not the way to overthrow a tyrant. Casto has proved it is not the way by outliving everyone, well almost, his generation and one or two that came behind him. He's got the Devil on his side, and wishful thinking is not going to overthrow either Castro or the Devil. (Devil is merely EVIL with a D in front of it). You have to be active overthrow either the Devil or Fidel. (Notice, almost Defile by switching his letters). Passivity favors the agressor. Passivity will result in slavery.
CUBANS WORKING TOGETHER
There are now some decent Anti-Castro Blogs. They're gaining in readership. They're encouraging a unity among Cuban exiles, and the children of those exiles. Now Cubans seem to be working together more. Agustin Balsquez, film-maker, for example, has worked so many years alone, fought so hard to bring his projects to fruition, then found only apathy. Now he has Allies. He has distributors. He is getting some of his Cuban compatriots to understand what he has been doing and they're going to help market his films.
Certainly there are differences of opinion about the way things should be done, but damn it, first everyone must pull together to bring about the fall of La Grande Cucaracha. Don't be afraid to call him a Cockroach. Don't be afraid to call him a windbag, a verbose bearded old geezer, a nin-compoop. Hollywoodians seem to fall for his six hour after-dinner rants, but they must be a bit addled themselves to do so.
Work together to bring him down, then fight each other all you want, but that's the only way to succeed. The main thing is to present a united front and bring him down! Mario Ramirez has also worked tirelessly, but mostly alone. Val Prieto mixes the sordid Castro story with other interesting tid-bits and wins friends for the cause. Great. Now we have another Blog, Quid Nimus, and a woman (or women)who get out and do things, and along with some wonderful writing, dig into the history of Castro's regime and expose the underbelly of the beast.
Along comes George Utset, www.therealcuba.com - now, with what they've needed all along, a real photo essay. The Lies of the Great Windbag are exposed for what they are, Havana falling apart where Castro rules, the dirty hospitals, the old and the children starving, and then showing what Capitalism has accomplished in the Tourist Zone. Side by side, the Good and the Bad, Good and Evil. Good and the Devil.
NOW, A TIME-TABLE
The next step is a goal, a time-table for squashping, La Grande Cucaracha. A day to look forward to, a day that he falls (and Raul), and ends up falling into a ditch with six bullets in him, like the thousands he has condemned in the years of his tyrranical rule. Then, a search for his hidden millions.
This past week has been a big step forward. Don't lose the momentum. Keep up the pressure. Begin listing the criminals of his regime and put their pictures on a Website and list their crimes. Criminals hate to be exposed to the limelight, to the world. Congratulations, Cubans. Congratulations to Val, Agustin, George, Mario, Barbara and everyone else, too many to mention, too many whom I do not know, because you're working together and La Grande Cucaracha is going to be trampled under your boots. George's photo of 27 cockroaches should be assigned as the Official Seal of the Castro Regime.
