Bunker Babalú

The Babalunians have retreated into their bunker with their beleaguered leader who still cannot recognize the magnitude of his predicament or accept the fact that he has been defeated as much by his own hubris as anything else. This is not a new Val Prieto that we are seeing but simply a darker facet of his personality which hitherto he took care to keep well-concealed. If he had continued to work in the shadows his real self would have been known to few. But in some moment of impatience, when he tired for once of doing circuitously what could be accomplished more quickly directly, he allowed himself to act with an unconcealed hand, carried away by a sense of his own invincibility (always the downfall of megalomaniacs).

Still, it is hard to believe that anyone could be so full of himself as to think that he could publicly dispose of a rival by dispatching his family without anyone noticing. Even mafia dons don't go there, and if they do, they take great care to hide their tracks. None is as brazen as Val, who appears to have watched Scarface one too many times in his youth. That, incidentally, is the favorite movie of all thugs and thug-wannabes, and we would not be surprised if Val, who is invariably described by others in those terms, has found a role model impersonating an Italian actor's steretypical impersonation of a fictional Cuban mafioso. Only in America.

We do not know yet the full extent of the damage Val has caused, but there is no doubt that he meant to cause it. We hope for Killcastro's and his family's sake that Charlie Bravo was able to disarm Val's little bomb in the knick of time. The uncertainty, however, is torment enough. We know that Castro could act tomorrow or a year from now. This information is his to use at his pleasure and in the manner best calculated to increase Killcastro's discomfort and extend it. There is something incredibly unwholesome, even unholy, in enlisting Fidel Castro as your personal avenger, the court of last resort for those who have scores to settle but would rather let somebody else do the dirty work while they rub their hands in anticipation.

Even Castro's apologists in the blogosphere are aghast at such behavior and condemn it, unaware, perhaps, that in condemning it they are also acknowledging the potential for evil that Castro poses; for outing Killcastro in the absence of Castro would still be reprehensible but not potentially lethal. So now Val is an object lesson to those who are ready and able to accept or ignore everything else vile about Castro but will not actually stick their hands in the blood.

It is ironic also that anti-Castro bloggers, Babalú's "magnificent cadre of writers," its satellites and even those who maintain an independent trajectory, have thus far refused to report much less condemn Val's behavior. Has it suddenly become acceptable to be a chivato (government snitch)? Betraying one's neighbor to Castro's gestapo is something that they would have no problem condemning if committed by a Cuban on the island. But when it is an exile that is guilty of a worse offense -- for the island chivatos are still Castro's subjects, unlike Val -- no anti-Castro blogger dares to call him out on it. There is no opprobrium too great for those who may commit such an offense under duress or even torture in Cuba; but, also, not one word of reprove for one who does so out of spite and without extenuating circumstances.

A certain "Eugenio" -- I wonder which of "Val's Pals" he is? -- criticized me (but not by name) on Killcastro's blog for holding Val's associates accountable for his reprehensible behavior. He may not be "Val's keeper" but no one compelled him to be his apologist (or perhaps someone did). I replied by quoting Martí: "Those who contemplate a great injustice and do not speak out against it are complicit in it." Of course, the blame is even greater if they have a personal association with the culprit. This is not "guilt by association" but responsibility for one's associations. These define us as much as anything else.

I refuse to believe that there is no redoubt of decency and honor in the Cuban-American blogosphere or even among Babalú's satellites but so it would appear. Their silence speaks volumes about their ethics but, above all, about the "compañerismo" that has enabled the Castro dictatorship for 49 years to govern our country. Is there no one here who will say: "¡Ya no más!" There are those in Cuba who dare to say it at the cost of their lives and freedom. Yet no one here dares to? And yet they have no difficulty calling Cubans on the island "cowards" and prodding them to "poner los muertos."

Incredible.

Good thoughts MAT.

First, there is no doubt that KC's personal info has fallen in the Cuban government hands. As all anti-Fidel sites are monitored 24/7by the Cuban government for material that Val "chavito" Prieto turned over. (Val, why didnt you just call the Cuban embassy?) More importantly, the US governement also monitors such sites. Any blog that has a name like KillCastro, or (any) foregin leader, friend or foe will get monitored by both governments, for obvious reasons. Val unfortunately did not take into account Bush's communist police state that he has created the last 7 years. A communist police state that Val voted for and loudly supports, the same communist police state that has already "federal filed" him as a chivato, as well as the rest of the Babulus.

Second, MAT you smartly point out that even the mafia doesnt go after innocent family members. However, if you study the mafia, you will notice that even they have honor and pride. Val on the hand has neither. Val runs on horrific evil, nothing more, nothing less. An evil that is totally devoid of feeling, empathy, emotion, or compassion for anything other than himself.

Third, and most importantly, i noticed that KC has given a "non-chavito" pass to the other Babulus. Well, i am not prepared to do that. I remember a few years back when a network of chavitos/spies were caught in Southflorida. Fortunately, they didnt stop at the first chavito, they continued until they discovered several more. Unfortunately, some escaped detection. My point KC, is that i think Val "chavito" Prieto had some help in outing you, and no doubt he bounced the ugly idea off a few other babulus, at the very least Henry "widestance" Gomez. I can see them both, laying on the bed "buttnaked" snickering, next to a heavily used jar of vasoline, as Val hit the send button to inform the Cuban government via KC, of your families location in Cuba. KC, listen, the Babulus always attack in pairs/pack modes. In my 3-4 years of doing battle with them. I always found myself "easily" fending off more than just one. Trust me, there were others behind your outing. If one is attacking, the others are feeding him/her ammuition, much like an inept bazooka team. Hence, their stunning and shocking silence about an horrible outing by Val of an anti-Fideliest blogger. An outing that they thought would go unquestioned and unchallenged!!!

John:

I am amazed. You are making consistent sense. You always had your moments on Miami's Cuban Connection but this is a wholly unexpected but welcome development. I may even get A.T. for you. She stops by once in a (long) while. I wonder what heights you would reach here if you had your Muse.

You err in only one particular: Killcastro is well-aware that Val is not alone, that there is a clique around him that seconds everything he does reflexively and unconditionally. However, rather than take the focus off Val, he prefers, understandibly, to keep it on him.

My own spotlight is on all of them.

P.S.: Nice touch with "chavito." That is classic Longfellow. Fantomas will be jealous.

Charlie Bravo said...

I just wonder if they realize the kind of image they are projecting. Cuba is already under a regime of fear and intimidation. Of thwarted loyalties, indifference, cruelty, and "it's not my problem".
Do they think Cubans in the island have any sympathy whatsoever for somebody who snitches and exposes an innocent family or two to the wrath of the dictatorship?
Hardly. Because they know that already first hand. There you have all the policias palestinos, the comites, and the chivatos, who are the lowest possible echelon in human waste and wasted humans -at least in Cuba.
The ostrich attitude didn't make the tyranny to go away. It actually made if firmer, since the tyrant -or was it his brother?- sodomized all the ostriches while they had their head stuck in fear under the sand.
"el miedo es cultura", sings Gorki. Now, how is that men and women who live in a free country are taken hostage by fear and ideas that they obviously do not share?
That was the rape of Cuba, as a nation.
It's not going to happen again, at least in Cuba.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Thanks MAT,

I am a progressive in my thinking. Therefore, i always strive to become more thoughtful and understanding about the world around me, including different cultures. I expect to be smarter and more aware tomorrow, than i was the day before. It is called progressive thinking, and it is my school of thought, for which i am extremely proud!!!

I first went to the Miami Cuban Connection merely to learn about my new city of Miami, which i had recently moved to. Unfortunately, i was greeted not by a welcoming handshake by the first Cuban-American that i would ever meet. Rather i was greeted by Val, a mean-spirited militant exile whom immediately hurled insults at me merely because i did not share his Bush-loving "conservative" school of thought which he worships. Shortly thereafter, Henry "widestance" Gomez came in hurling anti-homosexual remarks. And Robert came in calling me a commie spy. And then George came in nipping at me heels. Note: I actually kind of liked George!!

Naturally, i went immediately to battlestations, and stayed there for years for any and all Cuban newcomers. As i mistakenly and stupidly thought that every Cuban would be holding hands with these evil people. Henry,Val, and Robert literally created me into what i became!!

Fortunately, i began to meet "many" Cuban-Americans, which indirectly taught me that Val's ugly metality was not universal in the Cuban-American community. However, and unfortunately, many Cuban-Americans in Miami are susceptible to the nasty bullying tactics of Cubans like Val. Especially the new-arrivals, which Val and Henry enjoy preying upon.

As for my error as to KC thinking that Val did not seek assistance or acceptance in the outing from "others." I stand corrected. I have only read KC the last two days. And he seems extremely sharp. So i think you are probably correct in your assessment that KC knows that co-conspirators were involved in the outing.

Nevertheless MAT, i think it is important to determine what else has been done by Val, and possibly others to harm the anti-Fidel movement in or out of America. If for no other reason to spare future innocent families from potential retribution on the Cuban island.

Questions that should be put to Val's Babulu (employees) in an FBI interrogation room.

1) Did you have advance notice of Val's outing of KC
2) Did you in any way give aid and comfort to Val's outing
3) Have you outed or in any way harmed other anti-Fidel bloggers
4) Have you in any way brought harm to the families of anti-fidel bloggers directly or indirectly
4) Have you in any way communicated with the Cuban government directly or indirectly
5) Has the most high-profiled anti-Fidel blog in Southflorida been infiltrated by the Cuban communist government




I find it interesting, that most American families are barely filling up their gasoline tank, losing their homes, and Miami experiencing a recession. That Val "chavito" Prieto suddenly has enough money to make expensive home repairs.



6) Val, why are you so suddenly flushed with cash?????



Sincerely,
John

Val can sit there and lie all he wants, but I know he is a coward who hides behind his keyboard and acts like he's a real man.That guy has cajones the size of a flea.I really hope someone finds this guy and beats the FUCK OUT OF HIM. You’re a dumbass. What he did is absolutely deplorable... something must be really wrong with a person to be able to do something so heartless. Maybe val and Henry can hook up, Val can toss a coin as to whom will be the Bitch..lol. I don’t have any respect or sympathy for assholes like Valentin J Prieto from Kendall. If I ever cross his path I’ll kick his ASS!!!!!!!! New York City Style Beat down.YOU’RE A PIECE OF SHHIIITTT FUCKING LOW LIFEEE.. you’re a disgrace to all Cubans.

"Bunker Babalu" would be a fine name for some movie star's kid.

Vana said...

It is all so true, Fidel had his followers who egged him on, it has been his followers who have terrorized the Island to favor him, same with Val CHIVATO I'm sure there were some behind him pushing him on to out KC, that's how he probably got the courage to do it, I can only hope that remorse is killing him, thus to men who speak without thinking, sometimes one has to learn to bite their tongue.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Thanks Mat, but the connections are rooted in carefully observing Val "chavito" Prieto and Henry "widestance" Gomez over the years. As well as having a very "basic" understanding of modern Miami Cuban exile history, as well as my experience serving in Bosnia.

Question #5: Has the most high-profiled anti-Fidel blog in Southflorida been infiltrated by the Cuban communist government?


Is an obvious question. An anti-Fidel blog like Babulu can either be: 1) created by Fidel's agents, 2) compromised, 3) infiltrated.

This outing by Val of an anti-Fidel blogger could speak to one of the choices above. The fourth option of course was that Val's outing was "merely" spite.

I have totally rejected the "merely" spite category that Robert, and Val's other "employees" have quickly embraced. First, Val's outing was a brutal attempt to suppress KC speech. Note: Val and Henry are known to hate free and open speech. And to cease KC's anti-Fidel blogging via retribution vs KC's family in Cuba. Note: Val and Henry have always had a detaste for other Cuban-themed blogs, often sabotaging them. Putting an entire innocent family in physical danger cannot be put in the category of spitefulness. And anyone who chooses to attempt to argue such, is being naive, perhaps even purposefully naive.


Second, i always suspected that there was something amiss with Val. I have spoken with a lot of anti-Fidel Cubans. And a common thread that i have noticed is that there was often deliberate and smart reflection in their dialogue. Val, on the other hand demonstrated disorganization, often masked behind abusive language, and direct/implied threats. This tactic is often used to keep his victim completely off guard, and unable to peer into Val's true belief system. Because the victim is too busy denying Val's ugly accusations and attacks. As Val knows that a high caliber Cuban-American can and will quickly discover his ugly secrets.


Finally, when i served in Bosnia, we had some of the local population inside our base in Tuzla doing basic chores like laundry, food preparations etc, etc. Of course, we were taught always to beaware of communist who walked among us, for obvious reasons. It was always amazing to us that the communist that were caught by MI and CID were the biggest mouths who would go on and on and on about how much they hated communist. Well, naturally they were the ones that attracted the most attention, and would be the first ones to be rooted out as die-hard communist working with or for the Serbs.


Therefore MAT, i just linked my knowledge of Val, my personal history in Bosnia, and modern Miami Cuban history in Miami where communist agents have infiltrated and comprimised just about every facet of the Miami Cuban exile community. And that is how and why i think that Val was never what he pretended to be.






P.S.

That is why i would never sign into Val's or Henry's free-speech hating blog. The list that Val and Henry acquire can become an immediate tool for someone, including a government who wishes you ill-will for your beliefs that you express in their blogs. Governements, especially the Cuban government can take that registration sheet that Henry and Val requires of any commenter, and do wonders with it. For example, obtain your personal name, and street address, i.e., KC.

LOL, that guy completely ripped that communist, homosexual chavito a brand new ass. I downloaded it, and have listen him several times. Funny as hell. He said everything that i have ever felt and thought about Val. Proving my earlier point, that there are a lot of Cuban-Americans that reject Val's brand of thought.


I just wished that my connection wouldnt have failed half-way through the show. Nevertheless i got to listen to it.

John :
I did not give a "pass" to the group . You need to know that my youth was spent in Cuba , that I KNOW how to survive and that "The Art of war" is possibly the best piece of literature you can read for dealing with everyday life.
If I make a blanket statenet just based on hunches" I am left open to be blamed for the same kind of criminal stupidity Mr. Prieto is ( do you THINK I want to call him Mr. Prieto? NOPE but As I prepare whatever the hell comes next I do not want any mistakes. This has been proven at KILCASTRO between CB and myself , we do not make mistakes , "Guerra avisada no mata soldados" At tis very second there is a lot more behind the courtains that anyone else can imagine , I am sure this would nout take anyone who knows us by surprise. But as Mr. T mentioned , the HEAD has to be cut off the rest is noise .
So do not "please" think of me or CB as naive or ingénue
neophytes. I survived a KaSStrist jail at 11 years old I arrived in the USA with $30 USD and none waiting for me at JFK.
Life has taught me a lot about survival , whereas clearly it has taught Mr. Prieto NOTHING . While he mingles and learns from the Miami Mafia, I was technically adopted by some very high up individual in the NYC Mafia. Never did anything illegal because I was more of a mascot and these men had the HONOR to avoid my witnessing anything that may compromise my life.
But I LEARNED and I did from the best.
Think of my reluctance to acusse and my overly polite addressing to this gentlemen as the famous last KISS you see on an Italian Cosa Nostra movie.

Never lust for outcomes , that will make you do stupid things .. patience is your best friend and in the meantime your anger gets focused as a laser . When the time is right, the damage will be beyond anything I could do now , by just bitching about his esbirros.

I DO thank you John , I thank everyone. I just posted the latest of whats happening in Cuba , and we have one family member in jail. That increases my anger exponetially but I will not REACT .. the blow will come when he least expects it.

John, don't call the guy chavito. That's even cute. It's CHIVATO, so let's not dilute the meaning and connotation of the word.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

KillCastro,

First, i want to extend an apology to you on several fronts. The main one being that i was not actually referring to you when i said, "people being naive." I was actually referring to Robert, and others who attempted to explain away Val's actions as being "merely" spiteful. I should have tightened up my paragraph as to leave no doubt as to whom i was referring to.

And make no mistake, you have handle this entire situation as a perfect gentleman. Much more than should be expected. And certainly much more than i could. For that, a tip of the hat to you sir!!

Second, i am sorry what is happening to you and your family because of Val "chavito" Prieto. You and i probably are completely apart when it comes to our politics. But i draw the line when innocent people are harmed. Bloggers such as Mat, Rick, Alex, CB, Val, Henry and myself all know the rules of the game. Sometimes you deal, and sometimes you get dealt with. But NEVER EVER involve innocent family members.

Nevertheless, thanks for your compliment. And remember, the entire Southfloridian blogisphere is behind you, excluding of course, the "chivatos" over at Babulu!!


Sincerely,

Chavito vs. CHIVATO


What is the difference. I once saw on the movie "Scarface" where Solsa had Omar hung from a helicopter for being a "chavito." Remember that scene, when they were in Columbia meeting Solsa for a potential business.

After all these years, i always thought that Omar was a undercover police officer. Now i learned via Mat, that a "chavito," is really a snitch. A no-good, chain-smoking, over-weight, ill-tempered, free-speech hating, closeted homosexual communist snitch. Aint that right Val Prieto? Yah, nod your fat empty head.




P.S.

Which is worse, becoming a "snitch" in prison, or getting thrown in prison for being a "snitch?" Please do tell one day Val?

John, chavito is the parallel currency of Cuba.
Chivato is a snitch. In Scarface maybe they were confused and used the wrong word. the right one is chivato.
