Round 5 With Henry

Henry Louis Gomez said...

Wow, I'm really flattered to see that I'm so important so that a mere mention of my name generates so many comments. And I'm happy that I could help Manuel in that regard since he measures his blog by the number of comments rather than the number of readers. I have to hand it to him, it takes a lot of time to post all those comments.

But I came to correct another lie, or rather another misperception by Manuel.

The photo that I use on my blogger profile is not my high school photograph. The photo in question was a "head shot" taken by my employer in about 1998. Since I worked at an ad agency that was also a PR firm, I was required to have such a photo taken. I graduated high school in 1987.

I have used that photo simply because I like it. I was thinner then. And younger too.

But for Manuel I will update it. I'm sure he'd like to have a better idea of what I look like now in case we were ever to run into each other. Too bad he won't return the favor.

Here you go. I figure that if one Gomez generates 160 comments then four should generate well over 600.

Henry:

Glad to have been able to help you grow up, as has always been my goal. After a decade (or more than a quarter of your life), it was time to change the photo. With it, I hope, will come a new (if older) Henry whose family obligations make him more conscious of the suffering children of our country [I mean Cuba], which trumps all else and should be the principal concern of us all.

Our mutual friend and scourge fantomas is right: If I had not replaced this thread ["Round Four"] with the one honoring the Bay of Pigs veterans, it would surely have surpassed 400 comments.

Because, of course, you are a vastly interesting person, Henry. Wasn't I the first to realize that and haven't I made you an internet icon because of it? Gratitude would require some acknowledgment on your part. Your fame, certainly, was not derived from your appearance on Jamaican radio.

An upholder of truth as yourself should have the basic honesty to admit it: everybody mentions RCAB to you these days, it is the purest wellspring of your celebrity. I am reliably informed that it sends you into a rage every time that it happens, and I am sorry that you are now in a constant state of vexation because of it.

But fame is not an easy thing to bear. You may want to ask for pointers from your classmate and Belén's second-most famous graduate, Perez Hilton.

I am touched by your request for a photograph. E-mail me your address (you still have my e-mail, don't you?) and I shall be pleased to send you an autographed one with generous sentiments that you will always treasure. All that I ask is that you not lend it to Val because I wouldn't want it to end up on some altar with a thousand pins stuck in it.

Mat, how could you possibly expect Henry to understand the suffering of Cuban children. When Henry has advocated the return of both Elian Gonzales, and Elianta!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

I know. But one can always hope.

Miracles do happen. Look at you.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Ah, but Mat, i am my own thinker. As i do not recieve communist funds, unlike "others."

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

It is interesting he comments on his picture. But refuses to comment about the $5000.00 which he donated for the return of Elian Gonzales to Fidel!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

Oh, no, you have Henry pegged wrong about money. This is the guy who boasted of donating $50.00 to Fred Thompson's campaign. In Elián's case, he gave strictly moral support to the kidnappers or at most $10.00.

Ok mat, so i was off by $4990.00. Fact is, Henry did not want Elian to live in freedom. Much like how Henry doesnt want freedom of expression in his blog.


Nothing but a free-speech hating commie!!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Lets see, Henry has

1) outed anti-Fidel bloggers
2) supported deportation of Elian
3) supported deportation of Elianta
4) supports no free speech
5) supports Raul
6) supports Obama
7) no support for Mccain



Sounds like a commie to me!!

nonee moose said...

MAT, if you want to reach 100+ on this post, you and louJIF are gonna have to post faster.

Sorry for the interruption. Carry on, gentlemen.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

nonee,


LOL, i much rather be the only one posting. As there is only "one" reader that i want to reach.


one on one
toe to toe

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

nonee,


Stop being a Babulu apologetic mouthpiece!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

nonee:

This is the regular pace at which John and I post. The anti-Henry legions seemed to have grown tired of his labia (John, it means "wordiness" in Spanish). I hope this doesn't wound his pride since Henry regards the volume of RCAB's comments about him as a testament to his importance.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

You are right. Noone does seem to be getting rather cheeky.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Babulu's corrupt influence knows no bounds. Everybody has his price. And unfortunately, it appears that Babulu has found Nonee's!!

Vana said...

Oh my Henry thinks himself so important he actually believes talking of him gets you comments..lol..just take a look at yesterday's post on the Bay of Pigs, it garnered a lot of comments, no need to mention Henry.

BTW was unable to see picture of Henry "The Adonis"

Alex Hernandez said...

oh, lord here we go, manuel

La Diva Henry is gettin hurt.

nonee moose said...

nonee is banned, btw. BFD.

It just pains me to see 1.25 intellects wasted like this.

Cheeky? You bet. Would you like to see my drawrings?

louJIF, on rare occasions you sound ever so slightly like MAT. He's getting to you.

Vana said...

Babalu's tribute to The Bay of Pigs only got two, read two comments yesterday, and dear Val is again asking for money for Cuba Nostalgia, seems no one contributed, only two..lol...read two sponsors, Babalunia is going by the way of the Roman Empire, the bigger they are, the harder they fall.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

nonee said: louJIF, on rare occasions you sound ever so slightly like MAT. He's getting to you.



There you go again, speaking in the riddles. Just what in the hell does your above remarks supposed to mean?

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

vana said: Babalu's tribute to The Bay of Pigs only got two, read two comments yesterday



Of course, because Babulu "sole" interest is shaking the cup for money. All the other post is nothing more than a front for a corrupt money-making operation!! How else can one explain their horrible "outings" of other Cuban bloggers!!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

La Diva Henry


LOL, LOL

You wouldn't be the first to try to get on Babalu's good side after they banned you.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

I dislike Val, but I think Cuba Nostalgia is good for Cubans, especially the young at heart

Joey "Mugshot" Giggles said...

What kid of baboon puts his wife and kids at risk by loading their photo on the internet? Stroonz, Henry, stroonz. There are a lot of sick people out there capish? What kinda man are you finook to put your kids pictures out there? No respect for your own family. And that's you? Look like you had a salami up your ass, fat boy. Maybe you did. You've got no meatballs inside those skivvies!

Yes, I understood your position even if I don't share it. Perhaps because I am by nature a polemnicist, I actually enjoy battling Castro spies, agents provocateur and all-around jerks. It's fun. As far as I know, there are only two of these creeps on the web: John Longfellow (who has dozens of aliases) and leftside. John is a standing joke and knows it (indeed cultivates that persona). Leftside is a committed Stalinist. It's our fault, however, if we let them drive us crazy.

Manuel A. Tellechea in email to me (September 14, 2006). The email was response to a message I sent him explaining why I moderate comments. My email was specifically about Herald Watch but described my thoughts about comment moderation in general.

Henry:

I wrote a long post in reaction to your thread announcing Diaz's resignation. I note that you have published the short post about Omar Claro, but not the longer post about Diaz's resignation. Actually, that post was also about you, since I made a long comparison between you and Diaz (i.e. as representing the two sides of the Cuban character: those who love and build (you) and those who hate and destroy (Diaz). It would be a sensible loss if that post disappeared.

Regards,

Manuel


Manuel Tellechea suggesting that I remove one of his comments from Herald Watch on October 3, 2006.

In the end this all about whether or not I have the freedom to govern the blogs I participate in or not. Manuel seems to think that someone elected him the pope of the bloggers and thus everyone must operate their blogs the way he would like them to.

And when you don't...

Well that's when he starts telling lies about you.

Manuel Tellechea continues to say on this blog that I desired the return of Elian. He bases this on a post a made in which I reflected on whether or not there was a deeper purpose for what happened to Elian. Such a reflection is one of a person looking for the silver lining in a cloud. An honest reading by a reasonable person would indicate that my feelings about Elian being returned home were those of someone who was deeply saddened.

But Manuel, the self appointed king of all bloggers, in his demented thinking saw it as an opportunity to attack me. He knows the truth. But he ignores it because it gives him greater pleasure to attack me than to tell the truth. That's how he runs a "democratic" version of a blog.

Very well.

Carry on.
