"Well now, this is progress. We've [i.e. Babalú] evolved from a blog that was Pro-Cuba, to a blog that was Anti-McCain and Pro-Chebama, and now to a blog that is stridently anti-Catholic, including historically erroneous references to the Black Legend and citations [from] Revelations [about the 'Whore of Babylon']. Nutty . . . nutty. . . nutty. May the (non-denominational) God help us all." — Little Gator, "He Came, He Saw and He Praised the Murderous Dictatorship" [comment], Babalú, February 26, 2006
Apparently, Babalú continues in disarray over the sudden and unexplained ouster of George Moneo. Both Val and Henry are too busy trying to stop their satellites from availing themselves of the schism at Babalú to sever ties with it, to devote much time or energy to censoring commenters. If George's self-described "itchy finger" were still at work, Little Gator's comment would been instantaneously deleted. It may still be along with the controversial thread; but, for now, at least, it constitutes a public rebuke of Babalú on its own pages that has been hinted at before but never so forcibly expressed before.
Is Babalú an all-purpose blog, as George Moneo intimated yesterday in his last post, or does it have a distinctively Cuban character which has become obscured and even negated by its recent attacks on the anti-Castro McCain and advocacy for the pro-Castro Obama?
A war is being fought for the soul of Babalú.
RCAB is proud to have hired the first volley in that war nearly one-year ago and hundreds since.
