Of course Christensen lies. The one who disseminates propaganda
is Dan Christensen himself. The person that he usually claims to
be going abroad has been denied permission to leave the country,
in violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
How can it be, that the defenders of the cruel dictatorship
of Castro's always claim that they know better?
Dan Christensen, who according to his own propaganda, has
once been to Cuba on a protocolo tour, who does not know
one single Cuban person, together with his vassals, claim
that their propaganda is the only truth about Cuban affairs.
Dan Christensen has had several chances to go and have
a look at Cuban reality, but he constantly refuses. He
has been invited by several persons on this board, but
he is too chicken to challenge his prejudice. He prefers
to read from the English versions of Cuban propaganda rags,
as Granma international. In spite of claiming to be a friend
of Cuba, Christensen even refuses to learn any Spanish.
Not knowing Spanish is the most safe way to avoid learning
anything from Cubans. It is easier to deny them their fundamental
Human Rights, when one considers them sub-human, as Christensen
does. Thus they are granted no right to talk for themselves, but
can be silent victims of the propaganda piece.
Is there any credibility at all to such a one-eyed approach?
