A Visit From Henry to RCAB (Round 1)

[The following comment was left by Henry Gómez in the previous thread. It is his first at RCAB (at least the first published under his own name). My answer will follow in short order. I wonder what would happen if I tried to publish my answer as a comment at Bababú? What a silly question. — MAT]

Henry Louis Gomez said...

Hey Manuel,

Let me ask you a serious question. What did I ever do to you to deserve for you to tell the most vile lies about me?

Is it because I didn't defend you when Val banned you from commenting at Babalu?

Or is it that I didn't care when you told me you were starting this blog?

Or perhaps it's the fact that I have completely ignored you except for the one time I called you a liar for, well, for lying?

I really want to know.

Are you really that insecure that the only way you feel good is by tearing someone else down?

Just curious.

Hello, Henry:

How can I be guilty of telling "the most vile lies" about you when all I do is simply quote your words, as I did in this [the previous] post. Let me suggest that it is you who write in haste and do not fully consider what it is that you are saying. In many cases I suspect (or hope) that it is the opposite of what you really mean. Of course, I can only deconstruct your words, not your intentions.

I have no personal animus towards you. I do not consider you an enemy. None of the reasons that you cite have influenced me against you in the least. I will confess that your refusal to say even one word on behalf of Elenita after I practically begged you did color my thinking about you and changed for the worse the good opinion that I had formed of you during the Martí Moonlighter Affaire, when my praise embarrassed you as my censure now seems to hurt you.

I never thought for one moment that anything I wrote about you re Babalú caused you hurt. Why would I? Your placid silence confirmed me in the opposite belief. I thought that it all just rolled off you and I admired you for that. At least you did not make a fool of yourself by trying to engage me, as did Val Prieto. In fact, you have on more than one occasion written about how personally flattering it is to you to have a blog (or several blogs, as you put it) dedicated to your writings (this is an exaggeration) and how it proves that you must have something important to say. So, excuse me, Henry, if I did not see your hurt feelings behind the smokescreen that you set up to conceal them.

On the one ocassion that you did address me directly on Cuban-American Pundits (never Babalú) you referred to me as "Jerkey" or "Jerkey boy," or some such infantile title, which, rather than annoy me, verified to me that you took my criticism in the right spirit (the spirit in which it was intended) and understood my humor even if you could not match it. Then, also, there were the blogs parodying RCAB which you and other Babalunians started to convey the impression that you took my blog as a "big joke." Well, apparently it was never a "joke" to you. Painful truths are rarely funny.

It is not you but your views that I often find objectionable and it is your views that I attack. Not on Babalú, of course, because no voices of dissent are allowed there as you have made quite clear on numerous occasions with less humility than you have shown in your comment.

Let me tell you a little secret: If Babalú stopped doing to others what it did to me — if it actually adopted for itself the democracy that it claims to want for Cuba — I would devote this blog to my thinking on Cuba exclusively and not to refuting yours. But so long as you continue to delete comments and whole threads because you want to limit or stifle debate, so long as you hold yourself and your other editors as above criticism, and so long as you continue to ban commenters because their political opinions don't jive with yours, there will be a need for a blog like mine to call you to account each and every time.

So here's my offer to you: Stop and I will stop.

Hey Henry, dont get those pink panties in a bunch again.

MAT is simply telling the truth about you!!

Rin tin tin said...

Did Henry revealed Mat's real name?

Mat check with your family in Cuba to see if they were paid a visit by the G2 forces

lol

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said... said...

MAT please Welcome Henry to RCAB

I'm sure the comments section will increase ten fold

Nuff said

MAT, does this mean that HG is an avid reader of this blog?

Alex said...

Now papa Val will ban Henry for coming here?

I hear war at Baba

Alex:

Val used to comment at RCAB in the beginning. I should not be surprised, however, if Val were upbraiding Henry right now for doing so.

Alex said...

If they decide to comment here periodically , it will mean the end to babalu blog

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

john:

Henry has always been welcome to comment at RCAB. At least seven other Babalunians already have, including Val Prieto.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

rin tin tin:

Is that you, Val, again?

The Dogcatcher said...

Rin Tin Tin,
Yo' dog, you're full of fleas!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Yes, just like Srchobia, Henry didnt get the "No Speak on RCAB" memo, which is distributed in the "Weclome to Babulu" strict user guide.


I suspect Henry's implusive question orginated from Mat correcting him about the defintion of "score." After all, often boast about his degree in Economy. But never learned that "score" meant twenty.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Mat said: At least seven other Babalunians already have, including Val Prieto.



Wow, you mean i missed the "Shire" himself!!

rin tin tin said...

MAT , did you call your family in Cuba yet ? I heard your cousin received a beating along the bridge last night

EL TITULOS SERA ALGO ASI... Fantomas cambia de posicion
Quizas KILL CaSTRO/ CHARLIE TENIAN LA RAZON ALL ALONG

ESPERENLO , va a ser un bombazo

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

You know what is funny & sad? That Val and Henry can only post under their real names in their own blogs. All other blogs require them to cloak themselves in anonymity. Even in RCAB, where Mat has graciously welcomed them, and afford them protections from me. They persist on posting anonymously. It speaks volumes about their insecurity about actions, and their corrupted message!!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Mat,


And i am sure you know by my ip that comment #3 was not posted by me. As i no vested interested that you receive more traffic than Babulu. However, some else apparently has a vested interested.

Vana said...

Henry feels free to come into this democratic blog and air his issues, but we cannot comment in Babalunia because the regime there wont allow it, well, well will wonders ever cease.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Vana:

Not only that, Vana, I actually turned his comment into a "Guest Post."

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

I guess Henry thinks that "nobody" is suppose to take issue with his edicts. That as the supreme co-spokesman for the Cuban exile community. His words shall not be challenged or questioned. Especially by those he deems as mere peashants, which includes "everybody" but Val and himself.

The fact that someone has the audacity to hold up Henry's edicts for scrutiny is considered blashpemy by him. Unfortunately for Henry, he does not possess the necessary intellect or balls, to defend the very same words he ignorantly holds out for all to be commanded by.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

Nor the authority to inspire respect for his commands.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Mat,


And that is exactly what makes Val and Henry so dangerous. They actually think that they do have this "authority."

Alex Hernandez said...

Well, Said Manuel...

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

rin tin tin said: MAT , did you call your family in Cuba yet ? I heard your cousin received a beating along the bridge last night

lol



And this: Did Henry revealed Mat's real name?

Mat check with your family in Cuba to see if they were paid a visit by the G2 forces

lol






First, i cant believe i missed that. The two above quotes can locially be construed as a possibility of outing you.

Mat, becareful, as it is obvious that you are drilling deeper than they ever expected.



P.S.

As a side note. Have you ever notice how Val and Henry uses nicknames like, rin tin tin, jerky boys, and pee wee? They go way back into popular American culture. That is how i know that Henry is Pee Wee (Herman!!)

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

john:

Fantomas claims to be "Pee Wee Herman," too, from the old Miami's Cuban Connection.

So here's my offer to you: Stop and I will stop.

So if I submit to you and run the blog the way you want it to be run you will stop distorting what I write and making up lies about me out of whole cloth?

Yes, that's very democratic.

No, thank you.

Tellechea will never stop lying. He is a consummate liar.

Cada cual señores que corra su blog como quiera. Lo que no debemos permitir es que NINGUN blog sea la voz del exilio. ES DECIR DEBEMOS REPUDIAR AQUELLOS que quieran manipular la opinion publica del asunto cubano . TODOS NOSOTROS SABEMOS MUCHO DE CUBA Y SABEMOS NADA PORQUE NO VIVIMOS ALLI

ESTAMOS COMIENDO PAN Y BISTEC Y LANGOSTA TODOS LOS DIAS AQUI MIENTRAS ALLA HAY GENTE SUFRIENDO DE VERDAD..

NINGUNO DE NOSOTROS TIENE LA VERDAD , CADA CUAL omite su opinion privada y punto . Asi debe ser . Democraticamente

Vana said...

Fantomas:

Y tu consideras que un acto de repudio es democratico? me parece que tienes mentalidad Castrista.

Henry Louis Gomez said...

Vana,

That's funny. This whole blog is an acto de repudio.

Henry Louis Gomez said...

And you're part of the rapid response brigade.

Vana said...

Henry:

You are an asshole, go back to Babalunia before we admit you into The Madhouse, I would say it's Babalu that is an acto de repudio, the way you treat people there is shameful, free speech is never allowed, if anyone dares critizise the writers they are verbally abused, deleted and banned, I would say all of Babalu is an acto de repudio, and surely YOU are the rapid response brigade.

Vana said...

Oh Henry almost forgot, you and Val are nothing but CHIVATOS!!

Fantomas said...

Vana deja la histeria por favor , que tiene que ver los actos de repudios en esta conversacion

dejame decirte algo fui victima en cuba y mi familia de actos de repudios

te aconsejo que no hables de lo que no sabes , salistes de cuba de chica, quiere decir esto que no sabes ni papa como se mueve el mambo alli, eres una cubana a medias , en mi libro no perteneces

sorry

Fantomas said...

oh vana i almost forgot

usted es una pobre diabla

Agustin Farinas said...

Vana,
the mighty God Fantomas has spoken! Well, you are not considered Cuban anymore. Who does this idiot Fantomas think he is? So now he is the guy in charge of determining who is Cuban and who is not deserving to be Cuban? How presumptuos of this jerk to think that he can determine who is Cuban and who is not.
Fantomas, go put a pail on your head and spare us your boring diatribes and stupidities. Try to stick to what you know best: insulting people with foulmouthed stupid comments that no one cares about.

Vana said...

Agustin:

I know I'm Cuban to the core, fanto's opinions are just toilet paper to me.
