  1. ASSIGNMENTS FOR POLISH CLOWN COMRADE KOMAR, DAMIR AND OTHER CASTRO’S PAWNS.
    1. Offend and denigrate Yoani Sanchez and other dissidents against the Castro regime.
    2. Question the existence of this blog, and discredit its goals of showing the real Cuba.
    3. Create distractions, by diverting discussions over different topics.
    4. Contradicts any and/or every of the honest posting in this blog as well as participants’ point of view.
    5. Introduce links or/and references to media sponsored by Castro propaganda, with the intent of creating confusion about the realities of Cuba in prospect readers and foreign followers of this blog.
    6. Consume time and space when participants try to debate over Komar’s malicious postings.

  2. @#20
    “So the foreigners here, and everywhere else, should shut up and mind their own business”
    Follow ur own advise … shut up foreigner …

  3. Comrade Damir, Cubans do not want to decide their destiny. They elected dissidents to do it for them.

  4. The biggest, worst and most destructive form of imperialism is “some kind of pragmatic capitalism”.

    I have said many times, it is entirely up to Cubans to decide their destiny.

    That EXCLUDES cuban emigrants who have taken up citizenship of other countries. They are no longer Cubans since Cuba does not recognise dual citizenship; as it should be in a trully legal and honest world.

    So, for foreigners to call for a change of the system in Cuba is really just a stupidity raging.

    Would usanians like to have the whole world telling them, and cordoning them off in a crippling embargo until they comply, to change the system and become something else?

    A country that would be more to the liking of the rest of the world?

    I do not think so.

    So the foreigners here, and everywhere else, should shut up and mind their own business.

    If Cubans tomorrow overthrow Castros and establish a feudal society, it is THEIR problem.

    And their alone.

    But scumbags like that usanian now serving well deserved 20 years for spying and enticing anti-governmental activities, should be hang by their balls and let the gravity make the final judgement…

  5. Quoting from the article “The revolution is for males” http://www.interviu.es/reportajes/articulos/la-revolucion-es-para-machos:
    “For example, last January, six young gay were sentenced to between two and three years in prison for “pre-criminal dangerousness,” which means that for Raul Castro’s government they are incline to commit a crime in the future.

    The implementation of this controversial law replaced a not less controversial measure, put into practice during the first years of the revolution: the internment in concentration camps called Military Units to Aid Production. There were send all those that the regime considered alien to the new man it sought to create, from hippies to homosexuals,” says Cerceller. Currently, the prison of San José de Las Lajas, where the inmates with AIDS remain, is the closes thing to those camps. Janjaque, who a few weeks ago paid a visited to the prison, assures that there are about 700 arrested persons “for the simple fact of being homosexual.” Their imprisonments take place based on the law of pre-criminal dangerousness, which according to its own text, include “therapeutic,” “re-education” and “vigilant” measures by the “organs of the National Revolutionary Police.”

    Pre-criminal danger to society is a legal charge under Cuban law which allows the authorities to detain people whom they think they are likely to commit crimes in the future. Under Cuba’s penal code, the charge covers behaviors contrary “to the standards of communist morality.” The charge carries a penalty of up to four years in prison. By using this law the regime imprisons people without justification. Many LGBT people through the years have been jailed under those charges. Last January, six young gay were sentenced to between two and three years in prison for “pre-criminal dangerousness.”

  6. Love Cuba

    Cubans don’t want to business with America and set up world wide embaro.

  7. If Damir read my post, he would have understood that I was calling for Cuban independence and the right of Cubans to live freely. The Castros sold the country first to the Soviet Union and then to China and a few other countries along the way. It should be up to the Cuban people who they do business with. Down with imperialism!

  8. Damir never said that someone here doesn’t like the fact that they can buy foreign stuff:

    “Contrary to what Damir wrote, I like the fact that I can buy Japanese cars in the USA and that the Japanese built plants in the USA. I also like the fact that I can buy German, Swiss, British, French goods, or that I can work for companies from any of those countries. I don’t feel that those countries have enslaved me as a result, or that the USA is no longer my own because of them.”

    Contrary to what the quote states, Damir had said something ENTIRELY different.

    But the desire to manipulate, twist and brainwas seems to be etched into the mentality of so-called “pro-democrats”.

    I knew it was a BIG ask I made when I asked those “pro-democrats” whether they can see the message, as discussed in my post under number 12.

    And I knew the answer. Post 14 merely confirmed my concern.

    The answer is: No, they cannot see the message.

    Because if they could, they would not call for destruction of Cuba, a foreign country, that has every right to have a society as they see fit, with all the problems that may arise from such a society.

    These problems are really nobody else’s problem. Only Cuban people have the right to say and make changes to their society and their country.

    Offering to them failed concepts and non-functional utopias, such as “some kind of pragmatic capitalism” are terrorism and meddling into the internal affairs of a sovereign country.

    You don’t like Cuba? Tough. Go somewhere else.

  9. Contrary to what Damir wrote, I like the fact that I can buy Japanese cars in the USA and that the Japanese built plants in the USA. I also like the fact that I can buy German, Swiss, British, French goods, or that I can work for companies from any of those countries. I don’t feel that those countries have enslaved me as a result, or that the USA is no longer my own because of them.

    On the other hand I don’t like the fact that we have an oil based economy and that the Saudis and other petro-fascist states control so much of our economy and dictate so much of our foreign policy. Same thing for China. Those are imperialist states and we have been colonized to some extent. So democracy is a struggle, and until fascism and imperialism disappear, we will have to struggle against them. But I have the right to protests and vote in that struggle.

    Hopefully the Cubans will have that same right soon. As it is, their country is definitely not their own, it is a bankrupt state that is being dictated the terms of surrender by countries such as China. Having the USA as a trading partner will be preferable to most Cubans than being a Chinese or Russian colony. And so will having the right to protest their current colonization.

  10. Can anyone spot contradictions in the post 4?

    “All officially sanctioned clubs and meeting places are required to be heterosexual. The only gay and lesbian civil rights organization, the Cuban Association of Gays and Lesbians, which formed in 1994, was closed in 1997…”

    And a few lines down this:

    “Private gay parties, named for their price of admission, “10 Pesos”, exist but are often raided”

    And then:

    “Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar and French designer Jean Paul Gaultier were among several hundred people detained in a raid on Havana’s most popular gay discothèque, El Periquiton.”

    So, not only public places DO exist, contrary to the first quote, they are numerous. Discotheque El Periquiton is the most famous. This statement implies that thre are many others, otherwise such a comparison would not be possible.

    And existence of a discotheque also implies that it is a PUBLIC place, not a private party.

    There’s a fundamental difference between a PRIVATE party and a DISCOTHEQUE.

    Another failed capitalist brainwash. Just like the OUN resolution that authorises only air PATROLS above Libya, yet “democrats” are bombing civilian targets all over Tripoli and other cities not taken by Libyan rebels.

    Not to mention that resolution specifically states that teh aim is to protect civilians and nbot to CHANGE the government.

    In reality the opposite is true.

    Just like with these delusional latte and cappucino “freedom” fighters rooting for an incompetent group of losers working for the usanian nazist dictatorship.

    Fifth column.

    What do you think how would the usanians deal with such people? For a treason and activities designed to destabilise or destroy the society and the government, you get DEATH sentence, fullstop.

    The team “yoani” are free and at worst, they get a stick or two when they take their treacherous and terrorist campaigns to the streets.

    If that is not a democracy, what is?

  11. Post 8 another typical example of this pandemic inability of wrong-whinners to understand the world and reality that surounds them.

    I have explained this no-brainer dilemma some months ago: it is not about preserving Castros. They are incapable, just as the team “yoani” and alikes. It is about preserving the society and allowing the people inside to reform that society to accomodate their own aspirations and vision of the future.

    Cubans do not know and have no experience in capitalism. To change society in Cuba would mean the end for Cubans. Foreigners would pour in and buy out everything. Cubans could not compete with foreigners in economic and buying power.

    As a consequence Cubans would lose sovereignty and control over their own country. They may be poor right now, but their country is still theirs. It should remain so. Cubans should develop economy within the current parametres and within their current society, with obvious shift towards broader freedom of self-employment.

    Contrary to the ignorants who post here a lot of nonsense, socialism is NOT contrary to personal freedom and private property. To say so is to repeat nazist usanian brainwash. Calling ex “socialist” countries up to support this brainwasing nazist propaganda without even considering its hollowness and fallacy.

    As leftists are generally much smarter than wrong-whinners, they are able to understand complexities of such a change, which is eluding the wrong-whinners. Shift into capitalism that had happened in the ex “socialist” countries abundantly proves that the change is not for the better.

    To the contrary, without fail every single country ended up being worse off economically.

    Those with brain in their sculls will recall late 80’s and early nineties when many Eastern germans, who managed to “escape” confirmed that they were much better off in Eastern Germany, economically speaking. In their quest for political and personal freedoms, and they cannot be judged negatively for that – after all anyone with a few cells in their sculls knows that eastern block was NOT socialist in any way, they did realise that while you are free in “some kind of pragmatic capitalism” the feedom went way too far and it consisted of freedom to die on the street homeless and hungry.

    Those lucky to have any sort of job after they paid all the dues would end up with nothing in their pockets, suddenly “communism” wasn’t all that bad…

    Just ask Russians. They invented the famus joke: “What did capitalism do that communism never could?”

    “It made communism look good…”

    For intelligent observers, there’s a message there, burried under the capitalist propaganda and daily brainwash “free” people in capitalism are served every morning with their breakfast to never forget how “good” they have got it.

    Can you see it?

  12. Mariela Castro, Raul Castro’s daughter, has been touring Europe assuring that in Cuba the LGBT people can be organized through the Communist Party, despite the fact that two gay activists, participating in a independent LGBT group, disappeared in the middle of August without a trace.

    This is going to put to test Mariela Castro and its CENESEX. If the injustice remains unpunished as always, means that she has no power and her organization is used only as smoke screen, in order to make the people outside Cuba believe that Castro’s tyranny is changing.

    So Mariela Castro lies and shit stinks. Neither can be expected to do otherwise.

  13. I wander what they are talking about. I hope not about cashews and not meeting quotas.

  14. Yoani makes so much money from her dissident website and doesn’t even buy those poor folks in video soda pop.

  15. It’s hard to understand why some so-called “progressives” in democratic countries are so quick to defend or rationalize the regime’s repeated and serious violations of basic human rights and democratic freedoms, violations that these “progressives” would not for one moment tolerate in their own country.

  16. The Castro brothers draconian anti-homosexual policies are coherent with their enslavement of the Cuban people. These policies share a totalitarian underpinning that bars basic human choice, like where you can live, whom you can love, etc. A regime that reduces human beings to personal property is hardly willing to allow manifestation of particular affection.

  17. I feel sorry for those dissidents from Yoani’s videos. Like in the interrogation room. They just seat there. No table. No cup of coffee or glass of wine. In America they would get glass of water, at least, or maybe cup of coffee, sometimes with sugar and cream.

  18. YOUTUBE: Cuba’s gays look back on dark past -AFP

    AFP NEWS AGENCY: Cuba’s communist leader Fidel Castro stunned observers recently with his admission of responsibility for discrimination against Cuban homosexuals back in the 1960s and ’70s. The apology has been met with some praise but also criticism by leaders in the gay community who still feel the sting of past injustices

  19. According to the World Policy Institute (2003), the Cuban government prohibits LGBT organizations and publications, gay pride marches and gay clubs.[14] All officially sanctioned clubs and meeting places are required to be heterosexual. The only gay and lesbian civil rights organization, the Cuban Association of Gays and Lesbians, which formed in 1994, was closed in 1997 and its members were taken into custody.[15] Private gay parties, named for their price of admission, “10 Pesos”, exist but are often raided. In 1997, Agencia de Prensa Independiente de Cuba (the Cuban Independent Press Agency) reported, that Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar and French designer Jean Paul Gaultier were among several hundred people detained in a raid on Havana’s most popular gay discothèque, El Periquiton.[16]

  20. There’s a book called “Internet for idiots”. It’s been prominent in the first twoo or three videos. They have removed it. It was the best and most sincere part of those silly “party meetings”.

    And they look so much like Castro clan trying to overturn the government in Cuba, back in the day…

    Just a delusional group of wannabe dictators, pretending to speak for and in the name of the people.

    Who (s)elected them to speak in their name?

    Ahhhhh… “democracy”… what a noble concept! It always starts with a (s)elected few and it ends with the same (s)elected few… And prostitution is legal in “democracy”, so Cuban men will be able to sell their wives and daughters legally, not clandestinely as they, sadly, must do now.

    Yes, bloody Castros. They wouldn’t legalise prostitution and let “some kind of pragmatic capitalism” take over and destroy Cubans completely.

    How inconsiderate!!!!

  21. Tyranny makes nowadays huge efforts to make up its ugly face about homosexuals discrimination and traditional harassment policy. The intolerance and prejudiced mentality of regime’s elite produced the bloodiest episodes of persecution on homosexuals in America. UMAP was the camps of concentrations for homosexuals created by Fidel Castro personally where tens of thousands homosexuals where incarcerated and many of them found the death. In the 70’s and 80’s police performed daily raids on homosexuals in places where they used to meet. In these raids were caught homosexuals and heterosexuals that “looked out” like gays because they had long hair!!!!!…… The sadistic castrofascist police after beat and abuse of them enjoyed to shave their heads in order to mark them as gays. The youth found soon a protest way and everyone started to shave the head in such way the youth also tried to protect the homosexuals. Then police started to jail all shaved head!!!!…… It is remarkable the concept inherited of soviets about the supposed responsibility of homosexuals in blood crimes. Castrofascist police uses to investigate first all homosexuals related or befriended to murdered persons…… just because soviets said homosexuals are very leaned to commit such kind of crimes!!!!!
    Komar needs Dr. Miro urgently …… in a small, half empty and wracked book shelve he see a lot of books and find they way to use “ironies” about the book blockade castrofascism maintain on Cuban people.!!!!

  22. Are those books in back ground real or only paintings on the wall? I read on this blog that books in Cuba are very hard to get. Are they cook books or sonnets? Hard to see it from here. I guess somebody smuggled them from America. Do they have pictures of food forbidden in Cuba?
