How Embarrassing

Sorry for the inactivity the last several days, but work has been hectic and no sign of a break is in sight. I was able to get away just long enough to post today, but don't expect any consistent activity for at least a few days.

Anyway, on to today's post...

Looks like the ENCASA folks are getting way more than their "15 minutes of fame". ENCASA is made up of a group of Cuban-Americans who are against the US embargo on Cuba. That's not really a big deal in my book because, as we all know, there really isn't an "embargo" on Cuba since the US can and does trade with the castro regime.

What IS a big deal and embarrassing is the membership of said group. The biggest and brightest castro apologists in all of Miami belong to the group. You can see some of them here, as well as a description of ENCASA, which stands for Emergency Network of Cuban American Scholars and Artists.

You want to know in a quick sentence to what lengths they will go to blame the "embargo"? Check out this segment from Miami's Cuban Connection:

(Lisandro) Perez was asked how lifting the embargo would help curtail the types of beatings experienced by Cuban dissident Martha Beatriz Roque at the hands of a pro-Castro mob on Tuesday. "Those beatings have occurred under these policies," Perez said, referring to the embargo. "The policy that is being used is not doing anything to benefit the people of Cuba."

OK, so the beatings of dissidents can be traced back to the embargo. Hmmm. How about blaming castro? Is that so hard to do? Because the fact is, we can trade with Cuba all we want (and we do), the rest of the world trades freely with Cuba and send their pasty tourists for a holiday of fun n' sun in the tourist apartheid capital of the earth, and the beatings continue because of one simple fact: FIDEL CASTRO.

How is it that a group of intellectuals can miss that obvious fact? Maybe their ideology is blinding them.

Thankfully, there are many of us out there who are enlightened enough to understand the simple truth. You can see for yourself here.

Because anyone can miss facts that are hidden but it takes an intellectual to miss the obvious.
