The stilted and hilariously ideologically bent coverage of politics and Cuba continued over the Thanksgiving holidays at Babalu Blog when Val Prieto interrupted his Thanksgiving Eve preparations to deliver a big "Eff you!" to any Cuban-American who voted for President Obama...
Prieto then proceeds to link to a Daily Caller story in which a prominent Cuban political dissident claims that he recently waited at the U.S. Interests Section in Havana for almost an hour past his scheduled appointment time and wasn't able to get his computer fixed as he requested. Terrible stuff.
If you're an American of Cuban descent with a right to vote in this great nation and you voted for Barrack Hussein Obama, I have two words to say to you:
F*CK YOU. [Ed.]Not only did your choice help dig this country into this financial and political abyss that we're in, but it screwed those Cubans on the island that fight for their liberty and their dignity every day.
Prieto's loutish outburst not only ignores his BFF's not-so-minor role in collapsing the U.S. economy before he beat feet out of DC but it also totally glosses over the part the Obama Administration had in recently bringing Cuban political prisoner Ariel Sigler Amaya to the United States...
Sigler was granted a humanitarian U.S. visa based on his medical condition. Local officials in Miami cleared the way for him to receive full Medicaid benefits, which Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado supports....as well as the recent arrival of Cuban political prisoner Arturo Perez de Alejo from Spain...
"We did the same thing for Haitians who were injured by the earthquake," Regalado said. "When the U.S. government grants a humanitarian visa for medical reasons that means it's an extraordinary case and this is extraordinary."
MIAMI – Cuban dissident Arturo Perez de Alejo arrived from Madrid and became the first ex-political prisoner from Cuba to enter the United States with a visa issued by the U.S. Embassy in Spain.I've watched this obvious manipulation of the facts over the years that I've been following the Babalu Bunch and it never changes or gets better. The Miami Herald is a liberal rag so Babalu didn't say a word when the Herald endorsed Marco Rubio for the U.S. Senate this fall. The Obama Administration are a bunch of Socialist, Marxist, Communist Castroites so when they bend over backwards to accommodate and assist freed Cuban political prisoners, that angle isn't mentioned. In fact, the opposite is reported as is evidenced above.
“This is very important for me because it’s the beginning and opens the way for all of us to come here,” Perez de Alejo said after he, his wife and the couple’s younger daughter disembarked at Miami International Airport.
He cited U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as saying that all of the Cuban dissidents released and sent to Spain over the past two months “who would like to come here will be able to do so. Now almost all have begun the process, but there are some who would rather stay there.”
Although I don't think that any Babalu writer or contributor would ever claim their coverage of Cuba or politics is anything close to fair and balanced, the degree to which they twist and misrepresent and, most importantly, omit, renders their presentation virtually useless as a reliable and trusted source of information on Cuba news and American politics.
I have to admit, however, that while it has zero integrity, Babalu Blog just may be the most entertaining collection of horse dung stinking up the South Florida blogosphere.
