The American thinker notices something odd, that is unreported:
Rude and shaggy punk rockers who sneer at their president as “a fraud and an a**hole!”, who diss their national icons as “pr*cks” and “murderers!” have recently been arrested for attempting to visit a black civil rights activist who is being tortured in prison for quoting Martin Luther King in public.
And the reaction of the arts community is…
“Should’nt all hip people be outraged by this?..How come I haven’t heard about this in Rolling Stone Magazine, MTV, VH1, Time, Newsweek, Entertainment Weekly, People, Vanity Fair, OK, InTouch, InStyle, ABC, CBS, CNN etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.??
One guess why
It’s very simple. The insulted “president” is named Fidel Castro, the dissed national icon is named Che Guevara, and the black civil rights activist was jailed and tortured for campaigning for civil rights in Cuba for Cubans.
Need I say more?
This is my problem with the left. They will protest the US, they will attack George Bush but they would sooner shoot themselves then dare say a word about Fidel. This is the nasty secret the reason why I don’t respect so many on the left. Their answer to this outrage will be America is worse or its all America’s fault.
The guy who is imprisoned and tortured by Castro, the actual real thing? Can’t touch it. The whole Anti-anti business all over again.
When it all falls then our friends on the left will pretend that they were against it all the time, we were “all” against it. It never fails.
