Beyonce and Jay-Z celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary in Havana last week as official guests of a regime busily beating and arresting black civil rights activists known as the “Rosa Parks Civil Rights Movement.”
Indeed the Stalinist/Apartheid regime hosting the superstar couple murdered more political prisoners per capita in its first three years in power than Hitler’s murdered in its first six and jailed political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s during the Great Terror. Among these victims were (are) the longest-suffering black political prisoners in modern history of the human race.
In fact, the superstar black couple’s visit coincided with a wave of racist repression by Cuba’s lily-white rulers. Cuba’s black human-rights activists are being beaten, arrested and tortured at a rate that sets a ten-year record for racist torture and terror in the Castro family fiefdom, which is really saying something.
Heartbreakingly, as mentioned above, many of these Cuban human-rights activists admire the U.S. civil rights movement, unaware that the current standard-bearers of this movement—far from championing their cause—actually champion their torturers:
“Viva FIDEL!—VIVA CHE!” yelled Jesse Jackson while arm-in-arm with Fidel Castro at the University of Havana in 1984.
“He [Raul Castro] is one of the most amazing human beings I’ve ever met!” gushed chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus Emanuel Cleaver upon visiting the Castro family fiefdom three years ago. And on and on.
As Beyonce and Jay-Z lived it up around Havana, every penny they spent lands in the pocket of the regime currently beating and arresting Cuban blacks peacefully protesting under the banner of the civil rights leaders the U.S. superstars claim to venerate. Cuban dissident Sonia Garro has spent the past two Easters in Castro’s dungeons without even being charged. She was beaten, arrested– and beaten again– for the crime of carrying flowers in a peaceful religious demonstration honoring other peaceful Cuban blacks murdered by Castroite firing squads.
Not far from the Havana vacation haunts of Beyonce and her (Che-Guevara worshipping) husband Jay-Z, black political prisoners languish in KGB-designed dungeons for such crimes as publicly quoting the works of Martin Luther King Jr. and the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights. Among these prisoners is Dr. Elias Biscet, an Amnesty International prisoner of conscience who was awarded (obviously in absentia) the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bush in 2008.
