Double standards by Liberals and Socialists

“Cuba Si!—Arizona No!” Says Mexican PresidentFelipe Calderon (among many others)

By Humberto Fontova  Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Mexican President Felipe Calderon canhardly contain his revulsion and rage against Arizona’s SB 1070. He’s“deeply troubled” reports the Associated Press over a law he denouncesas “discriminatory and racist,” not to mention: “a dire threat to thewhole Hispanic-American population.”

This new Arizona law, “opens the doorto intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement,”sputters the Mexican President.
Indeed, this “threat to Hispanics”and these “abuses in law enforcement,” have been ongoing for years. TheAssociated Press carried a story where a Maria Elena Gonzalez, reportedhow female migrants were “forced to strip by abusive police officers,supposedly to search them, but the purpose is to sexually abuse them.”
Jose Ramos, 18, reported “thatextortion by border police occurs at every stop on their migratoryroute. Until migrants are left penniless and begging for food.”
According to this Associated Pressstory: “Others said they had seen migrants beaten to death by police,their bodies left near the railway tracks to make it look as if theyhad fallen from a train. “If you’re carrying any money, they take itfrom you,” said Carlos Lopez. “Federal, state, local police—all of themshake you down. If you’re on a bus, they pull you off and search yourpockets, and if you have any money, they keep it all and say, get outof here.”
All of the above “hate” and“abuses in law enforcement” as reported by the Associated Press, befellCentral American migrants who enter Mexico. So perhaps MexicanPresident Calderon knows what he’s talking about?
But what he’s also talkinglately—rather than getting his own house in order—is an economicboycott of Arizona.
“Commercial ties between Mexico andArizona will be affected by this law,” vowed President Calderon in aspeech last week to the Institute for Mexicans Abroad. “We are going toact.”
The hear-hears, toasts and tinklingwineglasses after Calderon’s pronouncement have been many. ArizonaCongressman Raul Grijalva, for instance, took a few minutes off fromdenouncing American economic sanctions against Stalinist Cuba tochampion American economic sanctions against his state.
The Rev. Al Sharpton, hails FidelCastro as, “one of the three most impressive people I have ever met”and deplores his “demonizing” in the U.S. After all, while FidelCastro’s guest in 2000, Mr Sharpton saw “absolutely no human rightsviolations in Cuba.” So impressed was Mr Sharpton by Fidel’s fiefdomthat he even tried organizing a Hip-Hop concert in Havana to “bringdown the embargo (of Cuba)!” Now he plans a “freedom-walk” to helperect one against Arizona.
South African Bishop DesmondTutu also advocates unfettered commerce with the regime that jailedpolitical prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s and executed morepeople (out of a population of 6.5 million) in its first three years inpower than Hitler’s executed (out of a population of 65 million) in itsfirst six. These Cuban political prisoners, by the way, included thelongest suffering black political prisoner of the 20thcentury, Eusebio Penalver. As I write, Oscar Elias Biscet, another black Cuban, suffers asentence of 25 years in Castro’s torture chambers. His crimes consistessentially of quoting the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights and theWorks of Martin Luther King in a Cuban public square.
“Viva Fidel!” bellowedembargo-opponent Rev. Jesse Jackson during a speech at the Universityof Havana in June 1984, while trailing a 300 person entourage thatincluded Rev. Jeremiah Wright. “Viva Che Guevara!“he yelled again withfists raised high. “Long live our cry of freedom!”
“He (Jesse Jackson) is a greatpersonality,” reciprocated a beaming Fidel Castro, whose regime ranksamong the U.S. State departments, State Sponsors of Terrorism.“Jackson is a brilliant man,”continued Castro, “his main characteristic is honesty. He is sincereand there is no hintof demagoguery in his speech.”(italics mine.)
While calling for an embargo againstArizona last week, Jesse Jackson denounced SB 1070 as “terrorism forthe innocent.”
At a European summit last yearMexican president Calderon explained his fastidious “no sanctions”policy towards Stalinist, Cuba. “Respect for the decisions of the Cubanpeople should mark the political future of the Caribbean nation,” hedeclared to loud applause.
Yes, Senor Calderon but as youundoubtedly realize, the “decisions of the Cuban people” are notprecisely those of the Stalinist regime that enslaves them and preventsthem under penalty of firing squad and/or torture from expressing theirdecisions in the manner of Arizonans, who who freely decided upon SB1070 by a margin of almost 70%.”
(P.S. I’ve used the incorrectterm “embargo” for simplicity’s sake. Despite what you constantly readand hear from his agents (on the payroll and off) the U.S. has beenCastro’s main food supplier and 4th biggest trading partner for close to a decade now)
