The Real Val Prieto Exposes Himself As Ana Menéndez's Pimp

What [Ana] Menéndez needs - and truly for poetic justice's sake - is to become an "Hermana al Rescate." Where she finds un buen Cubanazo balsero recently arrived and ... well... you get the picture.
Posted [on Babalú] by: Val Prieto at May 25, 2007 09:32 AM

As if days under the scorching sun transversing the Bermuda Triangle without a compass and maybe even without a paddle, dodging both cartilaginous sharks and those known as the Coast Guard, the Cuban kind trying to prevent him from escaping from Cuba and the U.S. kind from reaching American shores and asylum — if this most horrible and heroic ordeal ever undertaken for freedom's sake were not enough — the heartless Val Prieto proposes that some poor cubanazo balsero bury his oar in Ana Menéndez's well of loneliness in order to free her mind of its accumulated debris. The poor man would be better off jumping the shark. For those of you who ever wondered what Val Prieto's real intentions towards the Cuban people were, now you know. He is a very cruel and dangerous man.

"... the death of a quarter of the population?" wow!!!

so what happened to the will of the Cuban people to revolt against their oppressors? is it the universal need for basics such as food and shelter that trumps political ideology?

one more thing, I left a post on SOTP saying their site had "jumped the shark" without you there, and I dont think they appreciated it too much.

love the site, just found it a couple of days ago.

Very dangerous indeed

Dangerous and diabolical. He obviously cares more than Ana Menéndez sexual health than he does about the mental and physical health of a poor Cuban balsero.

Glad you found us. There is a wealth of "fresh" material in the Archives to entertain and instruct. Come to think of it, much of it really is pretty fresh since we've only been on the shelves for seven weeks.

Now I do for myself what I used to do for others. The compensation is the same but I get to keep the tips. And, of course, I am so much more grateful to myself than others were.

You are very right Manuel, is so full of crap, man camp, bucl and such, is so obvious to me that they don't give a damn about,our poor brethen in the Island, or what they go through to get here, or about that poor little girl, going through what Elian went through, if they keep going the way they are soon they won't have any one commenting in their blog

As far as reader participation is concerned, Babalú is practically a comment-free zone already. Of 2000-3000 daily visits, there may be 20 comments left on an average day for all threads, and every three months (or 4 times a year) a given thread may "break out" and get 50-80 comments. But 99 percent of visitors come for the spectacle which such enormities as you list afford while taking no active part in the deliberations.

Babalú is essentially an echo chamber and its founder would have it no other way and actively strives to keep it that way.

An "island on the net without a bearded dictator"? Perhaps. But only till the day Val Prieto grows a beard.

[Val Prieto] obviously cares more about Ana Menéndez's sexual health than he does about the mental and physical health of the poor Cuban balsero.

Vana said...

Ay Manuel you can be so funny, I can read your sense of humor through some of the things you say, many a times I live your blog with a big grin on my face, perhaps till Val grows a beard, I tell ya, funny

Manuel A.Tellechea said...


To ridicule the foibles of Val & Henry is both a pleasure and a duty for me. I hope the humor entertains you and that the underlying message is not lost on them.

Rick said...


You forgot to mention, jc, that you also said you were just kidding after I responded to your comment.

Between that and the fact that you posted the comment anonymously, I have to say I'm not impressed by your conviction.


Vana said...

Yes Manuel the humor does entertain me, babalu's loss is our gain, thank you for starting this blog.

Actually, I find that the comments section in Babalu has decreased significantly since Manuel opened his Blog. I used to find many comments there every day but now that number has gone down. I also think there have been more Cuban related blogs opened in the Blogsphere and that may account for the drop in numbers. There are many more places to visit so people spend their time elsewhere. I find myself spending more time here and Kill Castro than others because the subject matter is more interesting and more to my liking in these two blogs. This blog has very good postings about Cuban subjects and its history so I visit more often. Lets hope Manuel keeps up the good work and continues to post the good articles he has been posting recently. He certainly has gotten my attention. Also, his incisive and mordant humor is very refreshing. It always brings a smile to my lips. But please don't tell him, he might get the wrong idea, after all he is known as the great Omnipotent!!! (LOL)

I see I'm not the only one that has noticed Manuel's humor, Babalu lost a gem when they lost Manuel, that's why they have less people commenting, he had a way of inciting people to comment, with as you put it his incisive and mordant humor, I know he entertains me very much, keep on entertaining us Manuel!
