"God forbid that anyone compare Biscet to Ghandi [sic]. The loons will be jumping all over that one. -- Henry "Economist Gómez, "Prisoner of Conscience vs. Political Prisoner" (comment), Babalú, April 6, 2008
The "loons," you say, Henry?
You mean the people who actually know Gandhi's real history (besides knowing how to correctly spell his name)?
The Gandhi who was a self-professed friend and admirer of Hitler, who wrote to him that he "didn't think he was as bad as the British say?"
The Gandhi who advised Jews literally to "jump off a cliff," that is, commit collective suicide, rather than allow the Nazis to slaughter them, and, by so doing, "give the world an example of moral greatness?"
The real Gandhi, not the movie Gandhi?
No doubt Gandhi's advice to Biscet and other Cubans would be to "walk off a cliff," too.
Come to think of it, Henry is Oscar Biscet's "Gandhi." Henry almost got Biscet killed last year when he unilaterally declared himself Biscet's campaign manager and announced Biscet's candidacy for the presidency of Cuba. The problem is that he had not bothered to consult Biscet about it. Biscet's wife had to beg Henry to desist because he was going to get her husband killed.
