Comrades! We must get to Havana before the counter-revolutionary Yanqui influence corrupts the Workers’ Paradise! So says far-left moonbat mag The Nation (though in not so many words) in an email inviting readers to join it in Havana this spring.
The ad that takes the celebrity cake appeared In the January 11 edition of The Washington Post. Page A-5 carried a full-page advertisement. The top half had large capital letters, saying "No! In the name of humanity, we refuse to accept a fascist America!"
"The presidency of Donald Trump is illegitimate," reads the ad copy in bold letters. "By any definition, Donald Trump is a fascist. He has put together a regime who will carry out this program and worse." It even dispenses with the actual voters. "No election, whether fair or fraudulent, should legitimize this."
Al llegar al fin del 2016 y comienzo del 2017 hay una práctica en Univisión y Telemundo que sigue igual: la habitual descripción deshonesta y descuidada de la política de inmigración del presidente electo Donald Trump - que procura mayor cumplimiento de las leyes inmigratorias del país - con la etiqueta "anti-inmigrante".
As we reach the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017, one thing remains a constant at Univision and Telemundo: the careless and calumnious characterization of Donald Trump's pro-law enforcement immigration policy as "anti-immigrant." During recent coverage of International Migrants Day marches in New York City and Los Angeles, Telemundo's news anchors essentially adopted the marchers' anti-Trump take as their own.
While appearing on Fox Business’ Risk & Reward, MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor mocked the media’s laughable inaccuracy in predicting a Hillary Clinton “landslide.” Gainor responded to a video of someone on MSNBC suggesting republicans lived in a “thought bubble.” “I love how liberals talk about how conservatives live in a bubble and then their bubble bursts all over them,” Gainor said on Dec. 22, in reference to Donald Trump’s election.
A funny thing happened on the way to delivering Fidel Castro's ashes to their final resting place. According to an Associated Press photo caption, soldiers had to "push the jeep and trailer carrying the ashes of the late Fidel Castro after the jeep briefly stopped working during Castro’s funeral procession near Moncada Fort in Santiago, Cuba."
FoxNews.com had a sense of the symbolism: "The breakdown of the jeep in the midst of adoring crowds chanting 'Long live Fidel!' was symbolic of the dual nature of Castro's Cuba." AP news reports did not. They were too busy being awestruck by the "near-religious farewell to the man who ruled the country for nearly 50 years" to mention such a contradictory detail.
There’s cross-ideological agreement that Tom Morello (currently of Prophets of Rage, formerly of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave) is a superb guitarist. It’s a different story when it comes to his political acumen, which some would say is about as impressive as the singing talent of Florence Foster Jenkins. Morello, a staunch leftist who’s given to comments such as “words like ‘socialism’ and ‘Marxism’ have been so demonized that it's difficult to have intelligent discussion about what they mean,” was at it again in a Saturday Instagram post concerning the death of Fidel Castro, writing that “by defying Yankee imperialism for 50 years, instituting the best healthcare, child immunization and literacy systems in the Western Hemisphere (surpassing the US and Canada), exporting doctors to countries in need all over the globe…and being an unrepentant advocate of the poor and exploited it is no surprise that millions will mourn [Castro's] passing.”
The Monday night after ABC reported Fidel Castro’s death live from Havana, Cuba, World News Tonight paid little mind to the Cuban exiles in Miami, Florida celebrating the death of the tyrant. Instead Anchor David Muir rambled on as he hyped his flight home from Havana to Miami. “Our journey back beginning at the Havana airport where we learned we would be boarding the first commercial flight from Havana to Miami in decades,” Muir said as he we visibly excited to receive his inaugural certificate.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson warned President-elect Donald Trump against reversing President Obama’s executive order opening diplomatic relations with Cuba. The liberal pundit argued that putting pressure on the authoritarian regime would be “the one thing that could keep Fidel Castro, metaphorically, and his revolution alive and his system of oppression alive...”
How ironic it is that the announced death of Cuban Communist dictator Fidel Castro late Friday night coincides with the U.S. establishment press's obsession with smearing websites which dare to challenge their narratives as Russian-inspired "fake news."
Castro's original rise to power was arguably the product of a spectacularly fake dispatch written nearly six decades ago by reporter Herbert L. Matthews and published in the New York Times.
During a Sunday filled with liberal media elites praising dead communist dictator Fidel Castrol, CBS’s Face the Nation was no different. CBS consultant Julia Sweig seemed to write off the focus on Castro’s atrocities, “There is the analyst that will say look this guy took power, shutdown speech, put people in prison, had a human rights legacy that was quite challenging and difficult for many people who were on the other end of it.”
Geraldo Rivera is far from the only member of the U.S. press with what Fox News's Pete Hegseth described Saturday as a "reflexive desire" to see Communist dictator Fidel Castro, whose death was announced Friday night, as a "cult hero." Entire major U.S. news outlets fell prey decades ago.
