Six members of the Congressional Black Caucus just returned from what appears to have been a Harlequin Romance-style excursion into Cuba and the progressive embrace of her esteemed President, the one and only debonair Senior Castro.
I don't want to give away the novel, but here's a clue as to what happens: The world's most dashing Stalinist "looked directly into my eyes!," according to Calif. Rep. Laura Richardson. Then came the slow dance.
Perhaps not discussed during the whirlwind visitation is what Old Brown Eyes and the revolution have done for people of color. A clue to life for black human beings created in the image of God -- but stuck on an island lost in oppression inspired by a dead white European male named Marx -- is provided by this quote from Che Guevara, hero of the enlightened, the little guy, the oppressed:
The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking and intelligent . . . We're going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the Cuban revolution. By which I mean: NOTHING!
But "Che was too modest," writes Humberto Fontova in American Thinker. "'Nothing' is not exactly accurate for Castroite treatment of Cuba's blacks."
Like our own presidente, Senior Obama, the Dictator Castro rejects the Declaration, U.S. Constitution, and Founders' Vision that Judeo-Christian thoughtforms shaped, and ought to decisively shape, the American experiment in liberty under God.
And while we're at it, let me be clear: Islam, radical or otherwise, had nothing to do with it. And you can translate that into Austrian, Brazilian -- or Americanese, for that matter.
All that distracting stuff about the Creator endowing human beings with unalienable rights -- instead of an emphasis on the secular Federal Empire imposing arbitrary secular opinion and rationing rights based on idols of race, class, group, skin, eye color, or deviant sex -- can pretty much short circuit the ability of some to move America forward.
One more thing about Cuba: People there have universal access to smelling salts. Comprende? Indeed, indeed. Cuba may yet be the pathway to Fairness in America, the West, and unto the end of the earth.
