Those Crazy Cubans *** Just nuts about freedom... by Tom
The Miami Cubans remind us how angry we should be if anyone,
especially our own government, tramples on our rights and
freedom. Youâ€™d think the average housewife would get a little
upset if 130 machine-gun toting, skull-cracking, cursing and
swearing government agents kicked the neighbors door down,
snatched a six-year-old refugee away and sent him back to certain
Communist oppression. But the modern American has become flaccid
in protecting the freedoms our fathers died to preserve. The
Cuban Americans are merely trying to warn us.
Cuban American are an interesting lot. Some are ex-patriots who
escaped Castroâ€™s bloody hand. Others were born here, waiting
for a chance to live in a homeland theyâ€™ve never seen. Almost
all have relatives who were either jailed, tortured or killed by
Fidel Castro in order to keep his miserable vision of Socialism
alive. America offered a safe haven to preserve their culture,
waiting for the chance to return to a free homeland.
It is alarming that Americans would fall so easily for this
savage PR campaign against people who are embarrassingly
passionate about Americaâ€™s freedom. Cubans know the smell of
What a powerful irony that such a people actually have greater
passion for Americaâ€™s freedom than we do.
Those Crazy Cubans. I love every damned one of them.
