Castro, another year closer?

When a vile cruel dictator take sover a country he unfortunately is celebrated by the American left wacko's.

A few years ago Belafonte was asked about his friend Fidel Castro. Here's a "Cuban leader" (the term used by the late Peter Jennings) who jailed more political prisoners as a percentage of population than Hitler or Stalin. Here's a "Cuban premier" (as Barbara Walters prefers) who executed more political prisoners in his first year in power than Hitler did in his first five. Here's a "Cuban president" (Dan Rather's term) who jailed or executed any union official, journalist or political opponent who uttered a peep against him.

"If you believe in freedom," Belafonte quickly replied, "if you believe in justice, if you believe in democracy – you have no choice but to support Fidel Castro!"

It's hard to know where to begin responding to a mentality like Belafonte's. So lets just let history speak of the stupidity of Belefonte's ignorance on Castro's dictatorship and oppresion of the Cuban people.

In 1984 Jesse Jackson was in Havana, arm in arm with a man who abolished voting rights for blacks, whites – for any hue on any Cuban Rainbow Coalition – and under penalty of the firing squad. To this day Castro promptly jails anyone who dares bring up the subject of voting.

His crackdown and jailing of dozens of dissents last month (many black) was over this very topic. "Fidel Castro is the most honest and courageous politician I've ever met!" beamed Jesse Jackson in 1984 as he shared the spotlight with the man who reintroduced slavery to Cuba. Then Jackson detonated his famous: "Viva Fidel! Viva Che!"

"God Bless you, Fidel!" boomed Pastor Calvin Butts of Harlem's Abyssinian Baptist Church while introducing the man who jailed the longest-suffering black political prisoner of the 20th century, and who pleaded, begged and even tried to cajole Nikita Khrushchev into nuking New York in 1962. "It is in our tradition to welcome all who are visionaries, revolutionaries and who seek the liberation of all people!"

The "liberation" Castro sought in October 1962 for the people crowding pastor Butts' church, for Charles Rangel's constituents, and indeed for Charles Rangel and pastor Butts himself, was in the form of nuclear incineration.

"If the missiles had remained," Che Guevara admitted in November of 1962, "we would have used them against the heart of the U.S., including New York. We must attain victory even if it costs millions of atomic victims."

Eusebio Penalver,the longest-serving black political prisoner of the 20th century. A black Cuban, he was holed up and tortured in Castro's jails longer than Nelson Mandela languished in South Africa's. Mr. Penalver was bloodied in his fight with Communism but unbowed for 30 years in its dungeons.

"N**ger!" taunted his jailers. "Monkey! We pulled you down from the trees and cut off your tail!" snickered Castro's goons as they threw him in solitary confinement.

The Castroites were always asking Eusebio Penalver for a "confession," for a signature on some document admitting his "ideological transgressions." This would greatly alleviate his confinement and suffering, they assured.

Castro got his answer as swiftly and as clearly from Mr. Penalver as the German commander who surrounded Bastogne got his from the 101st Airborne.

Eusebio scorned any "re-education" by his Castroite jailers. He knew it was they who desperately needed it. He refused to wear the uniform of a common criminal. He knew it was they who should don it. Through 30 years of hell in Castro's dungeons, Eusebio Penalver stood tall, proud and defiant

Ever heard of him? He lives in Miami. Ever see a CNN interview with him? Ever see him on "60 Minutes"? Ever read about him in the New York Times? The Boston Globe? Ever hear about him on NPR or during Black History Month? Ever hear the NAACP or Congressional Black Caucus mention him?

Maybe it is about time Belefonte, Jessy Jackson, and others really take a long look at their hero in Cuba.
