Myriam Márquez: The Cloning of Ana Menéndez

Ana Menéndez has been replaced by another self-hating Cuban, except that Myriam Márquez, a horrible writer and worse polemicist, makes us look bad even before she embarks on the first platitude or non-sequitur.

The title of her column gave us hope that we might be able to think better of her, because a noble heart can make itself known even tangled in turgid prose: "Wet or Dry, Policy Should Be the Same." Not being a moral monster myself I naturally assumed that she meant that all fugitives from injustice should receive the same compassionate treatment whether they were fighting for their lives on the high seas or had defied all odds and predators (natural and denatured) to make it to these shores. But she meant no such thing. Whether "dry" or "wet" Márquez wants all Cuban refugees to receive the draconian treatment which Clinton decreed for the "wets" in his revision by presidential fiat of the Cuban Adjustment Act (1966), or, as she puts it, she wants the "U.S. [to] appl[y] wet-foot rules to dry-footers."

When the CAA was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Johnson there was no distinction between "wets" and "drys," a refugee was a refugee and the U.S. would no more have sent one back to Cuba than it would have tossed a fleeing East German over the Berlin Wall. That's the way the law worked for 30 years, that's the way it worked for all of us, including Ms. Márquez and her cousins, the rafter and the balsero. She doesn't tell us if one or both turned out to be criminals, which is the reason she gives for wanting the repeal of the Cuban Adjustment Act:

"After this country extends them every privilege under the Cuban Adjustment Act, some of them abuse the law. They pop up in Medicare scams and, when the FBI comes after them, they take the next plane back to Cuba or hitch a ride on a smuggling boat headed to the communist island."

First of all, the U.S. does not extend any "privileges" to Cuban refugees. That's her first mistake and the wellspring of all others. Their right to asylum is enshrined in U.S. law. So long as that law exists it is not a privilege or gracious concession which the U.S. grants them but recognition of that right in compliance with that law.

Ms. Márquez writes that at least half of South Florida's Medicare fugitives are "back in Cuba." Did it ever occur to her or The Herald reporter whom she quotes to that effect that the authors of these multimillion-dollar Medicare scams were Castro agents infiltrated into this country for the expressed purpose of perpetrating those kinds of frauds? It is no accident that "at least half" chose to redefect to Cuba with their ill-gotten loot. This is what they were expected to do. I doubt that you would find any rafters among Castro's agents. They are too cowardly to pay such a price even to sample freedom. Their immigration visas were no doubt duly approved by the regime and processed through the U.S. Interests Office in Havana. Is it really so hard to figure out that no Cuban exile would voluntarily repatriate himself to Cuba unless he was never an exile in the first place?

Márquez quotes U.S. District Judge Fedérico Moreno in support of her contention that the latest refugees are not trueblood refugees, but does not realize -- because she is too daft to realize it -- that Moreno's observation actually undermines her case:

''It seems to me that our thinking has to change. We always think here in Miami that if you're a Cuban refugee, you're not going to go back to Cuba. I'm wondering whether a Jew leaving Nazi Germany can go back and forth to visit the relatives. I would suspect you couldn't.''

Moreno is wrong, of course. Our thinking does not have to change. Cubans, whether they arrived here in 1959 or yesterday, are not voluntarily returning to live in Cuba -- not in droves or in a trickle, no more than Jews would have (or could have) returned to Germany in 1939. Such a thing, indeed, is almost unheard of. The handful of Cubans who do return for good to the island do so because they have completed the mission that was assigned to them in this country and are recalled to Cuba. It would be strange indeed if U.S. immigration policy towards Cuban refugees were predicated on the conduct in this country of Castro's spies and agents provocateur, who are sent here, among other reasons, to sully the community's good name and undermine the Cuban Adjustment Act, which, though gutted and perverted by both Clinton and Bush, still provides the only option for Cubans willing to risk lives to attain freedom.

For Ms. Márquez today's "Yosmanys and Yusmilas" are "abusing America's good will" by wanting to be free in a way that the "Rigobertos and Rudesindas" weren't 50 years ago. Still, the tyranny that they are escaping is the same; the tyrant is the same; everything is the same except perhaps their color and social class. Or are they unacceptable to her because they are a later version of the Cuban "New Man," say, version 26.50, when no version after 26.20 is deemed "uncorrupted?"

This daughter of immigrants, who knows that real "Americanism" consists in turning on one's own, warns in the best xenophobic fashion that "U.S. benevolence has its limits."

Benevolence has no limits for those who are truly benevolent just as cravenness has no limits for the truly craven.

I'm sick and tired of these so called American- Cubans, how indeed can we be united when Cubans themselves undermine their own, I call it racism toward those born under the revolution, xenophobia because they think them different than those that arrived in the 60's, trully I don't understand it, did not most of us flee for our very lives? what makes the ones fleeing now different? Myriam you are a disgrace to your race.

You mean the Democrats goodwill? You never had the goodwill of half the nation, also known as the rank and file of the republican party. You know, "the redstate republicans." The same republicans that despise you for you Spanish tongue and culture. And the same republicans that you beg on your knees for acceptance. Even at the expense of selling-out the very essence of being Cuban.

Self-hating within the Cuban exile community is the norm, and not the exception. Let it be Val Prieto, or others, it is all the same. Self-loathing because they were not born a republican from Mobile, Alabama.

The same self-loathing that causes Cuban immigrants to root against the Cuban olympic teams, or refuse to watch some of the greatest athletes in the world.

The same self-loathing that causes the Cuban exile to starve millions of their countrymen, to punish one man, i.e., Castro.


The same self-loathing that would cause that same Cuban blogger to ignorantly ask if the Cuban man, "really has balls," while they live in the most horrific conditions in the Western Hemisphere. While Prieto builds a $60,000 kitchen in Kendell, only to feed his drunkard fat face with pig imported from Key West.

The same self-loathing that caused Val Prieto to rat out a fellow Cuban-American bloggers.


The same self-loathing that causes Cuban immigrants to hate anything Democratic. Even Democrats that were true friends like President Johnson.

The same self-loathing that causes Cuban immigrants to (worship) President Bush, the worst President the world has even seen. A President who through neglect has increased communism influence throughout Latin American and the world. And the same President who systematically targeted and presecuted Cuban exiles whose only crime was a desire for a free Cuba.


Cuban-Americans always whine about make believe enemies like a Danny Glover, or Hillary Clinton. When in fact, the greatest enemy of Cubans have been other (CUBANS.)


Yes, you self-loathing Cubans are indeed your own worst enemy. Always have been, and always will be.

Welcome back John, trust me I relish the fact I was not born in Mobile Alabama.

Yes Manuel the human race, some people and I could name a loooong list are better aborted.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

vana:

That was a very good answer to "guess who."

As a historical footnote, it was Spaniards from Cuba who colonized Mobile, Alabama and who, under General Bernardo Gálvez, won the Battle of Mobile during the American Revolution.

It was after we left that the horrors for which it would later become known -- Jim Crow, lynchings, white supremacy, the Ku Klux Klan, segregation and George Wallace -- came to define the place.

guess who said...

Manuel said: It was after we left that the horrors for which it would later become known -- Jim Crow, lynchings,



Excuse me, isnt that the same thing that Batista and later Castro did to non-white skinned Cubans, when he refused to let them into (American) gangster-run Casinos and restaurants in Havana during the 1960's?


Just more self-loathing by the Cuban community. Letting American hoodlums dictate to Cubans where and when they can go in their )own nation.) Only Cubans would allow and celebrate such an ugly injustice to be inflicted on her fellow countrymen.

But according to Manuel, that was ok with him, because he grandaddy personally benefitted, as did he.




P.S.


Sorry, you thought wrong, like usual.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

guess who:

Cubans elected Batista president 68 years before Barack Obama was defeated in his bid to become the first black U.S. president. Or, perhaps, I should say African-American because that is what Obama in fact is.

lonh john fellow " aka lou dobbs" said...

I'm back from Indiana stronger than ever

guess who said...

Oh i see, since Cubans (initially) supported and elected Batista, that means that Batista the American gangster puppet was acceptable to you. Kind of like how both Bush, Casro, and Hitler, were accepted early on? LOL

All makes sense to you doesnt it Manuel, because your grandaddy personally benefitted, as did you.


LOL

And you have the nerve to talk about self-hating within the Cuban exile community.

No, you don't understand. Think Batista and Obama. Think hard. What do they have in common? Bonus points will be awarded.

I see that "gangsters" is now your new name for Americans. I thought you were an American patriot.

BTW, if you are John, you must learn how to spell your name again.

guess who said...

That is the thing about many Cubans. Changing their last name to an English name, like that one Hollywood actor. Refusing to marry non-cubans, like that one Congresswoman in Miami. Supporting one corrupt leader (Batista) over another (Castro.) Exposing fellow Cuban-American bloggers like Val Prieto. Supporting Presidents like Bush, who did nothing but presecute Cuban exiles, and allow communism to fester in Latin America.
Starving your own countrymen, to punish one man. Embarrassing yourselves in front of the entire world, over Elian Gonzales.


Interesting, sad, but interesting nonetheless. I hope Manual that you can flesh this self-hating epidemic within the Cuban community in future post. And be sure to include any personal stories, if any.

guess who said...

Manuel,


1) LOL, everybody knows that the John Gotti types ordered Batista around, in his own nation. And you do to Manuel.

2) Your post is about self-hating Cubans, so it is interesting that you are trying to start bashing Obama in this post to distract away from your own topic. As i am sure that you thought that you would not be held accountabl for your own form of self-hating. You brought up the topic of self-hating Cubans, now you have to eat it.

3) You are correct, Cubans are very self-hating. I dont know why, they have a lot to be proud of. Perhaps, the only thing they have yet to achieve in America, is acceptance by those that hate them the most, i.e., redstate republicans. Unfortunately, acceptance from them will never happen, especially nowadays.

4) Keep trying though. As you have already embarrassed yourself in front of the world when you attached your hitch to George W. Bush. Forty years of hard work by the Cuban exile community, and all destroyed by one man.


5) Nobody gives a hang what Cubans in Miami think anymore. Sure if Florida was in a battleground state, then yes. But Florida is good ole boy country now. Most progressive mind people have left, or in the process of leaving Southflorida. So who cares who the Cuban exile is going to vote for. You have forever lost your hard-earned respect, from those that had it in the first place.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

guess who:

Google a little. See if you can find out what Batista and Obama have in common. It's not that hard, really. Please nobody tell him.

guess who said...

Manuel, i will google that, as soon as you can tell me why you think it was acceptable for Batista to exclude your Cuban countrymen from casinos and restaurants at the request of his American gangster handlers?

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

guess who:

Cubans were never excluded from casinos in pre-Revolutionary Cuba and were, in fact, the main customers.

It was under Castro that apartheid was instituted in Cuba and Cubans barred from hotels, beaches, restaurants and stores reserved for the exclusive use of foreigners.

guess who said...

Now back on topic. Manuel, why do you think it was acceptable for Batista to exclude your Cuban countrymen from casinos and restaurants at the request of his American gangster handlers?



P.S.


Fantomas, Putin and the rest of the blood sucking communist were allowed to have their way under the Bush adminstration. In fact Bush imprisioned and otherwise silenced many anti-communist Cuban exile throughout America. And of course, the Cuban-Americans still to this day (worship) Bush. So it should be of no suprise that a resurgent Russia feels empowered to have their way not only in Georgia, but according to Cuba herself (again.)

guess who said...

Manuel, you are entitled to believe that. I think most everybody else would disagree with you last statement, however.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

guess who:

And why was your grandfather excluded from visiting the zoo by not one but eight mayors of Puerperal Fever, Oregon?

guess who said...

Manuel,

In my opinion, supporting Batista who excluded a certain portion of your countrymen, is a form of self-hatered. Worse, but/for Batista, there would be no Castro. No Castro, would more than likely equal a communist free Cuba.

But like (you) have previously stated, your grandaddy personally benefitted under Batista, so you were happy, until Batista corrupt nipple was torn away from you spoiled and selfish lips.

Vana said...

I see Guess Who aka John is another Fidelista sin Fidel harping on the same crap that without Batista there would be no Castro. WRONG!! many factors led to Castro.

Vana said...

Manuel's last statement is CORRECT, during Batista Cubans were not barred from casinos and hotels, the country was ours, Cuba was a capitalist country like the USA, you could frequent the places you could afford just like here, so you are gravely mistaken.

Agustin Farinas said...

MS. Calabaza,
Have no fear, Cubans do not have a monopoly on self-loathing by far. Americans have a great amount of self haters too. Witness all the flag burners and the anti-war protesters who are inciting against our troops in cities such as San Francisco and Oakland and who plainly state they hate America.
So for this guy to come her and chastises us about self-loathing when he should be putting his own house in order, is pure hypocritical b.s.
Instead he should be worrying about his own backyard instead of criticizing the neighbor for his dirt in his. He certainly has plenty to clean up in his own house. I am sure there are more US self-haters than there are self-loathing Cubans. [

Only one little bitty problem with sloppy excuse of a defense for the prolific self-loathing within the Cuban community. The self-hating within Cuban community was one factor in you being displaced out of your country.

unlike those other folks who insist in answering you I will not waste my time with your kind. I believe you are an idiot at best or seriously mentally disturbed, so go ahead and spew you hatred all you want, since is obvious that you are a very disturbed individual with deep psychological problems. My advice for you is to seek psychiatric help soon.

Anonymous said...

It is ok to mock me. It just tells me that i have struck deep into the interior of your psyche. Fact is, the Cuban-American brand has been destroyed for generations to come. It started with Elian, as the world watch in horror, as the worst of the Cuban-Americans citizens were allowed to be the face of the Cuban-American community. The destruction was complete when your swore allegiance to the most hated man in the free world, i.e., Bush.


Now you are reduced bitter old has-beens. Sprewing hated all the way from the Obama girl, to the deceased Bernie Mac. The celebration of the death of Bernie Mac, because he was a Hollywood actor, is one of the more digusting things from your community. As was the case when the Cuban exile community rejoiced when Richard Pyor passed away.

No sir, i dont envy the Cuban community one bit.

The Cuban exile community hate:

Richard Pyor, Robert Deniro, Al Pachino, Eddie Murphy, Michael Douglas, Sean Connery, Denzel Washington, George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Will Smith and especially Jack Nickelson.


And then there is cameron diaz, halle barry, sharon stone, cher, jennifer lopez, nicole kidman, and penelope cruz.


And of course, there are the world famous American entertainers like Madonna who the Cuban-American despise.


Not to mention of our beloved athletes that Cuban exiles hate like Michael Jordan, and many other athletes.

Then of course, there are entire nations that Cubans hate. First, there is all of Latin America, except a notably few like Columbia. Then there is liberal Canada, that Cubans hate. Then over to Great Britian, France, Holland, and just about any European nation that is not sufficiently conservative. Which of course leaves, Australia, and muslims nations as they tend to be (conservative.)


Sad, but true.

You can say with a straight face that you were unaware that the Cuban-American community has nothing but deep-hatered for liberal Hollywood, which includes every name that i mentioned. Stop lying. The Cuban community actively looks forward to hate the next new liberal commie. Of course, America, (real) America will embrace them.

For example, the mens Olympic basketball team will be loved by both democrats and republicans alike. Of course, the mens basketball team will be hated by the Cuban exile community. Why? Because the Mens Olympic basketball team are all Obama supporters, which makes them instant liberal commies, at least according to the Cuban exile community.

Im not demented, as most (real) Americans think like i do about the Cuban exiles. That is why most American moved away from you in Miami, epecially the republican types.

I know it is too painful to admit that America has resoundingly rejected the Cuban exile community.

Republican rank and file, fueled by Foxnews, Newt, and Rush Limbaugh, has rejected Cuban immigrants, well, because they view them as immigrants. That is why they quickly stripped Sen Mel Martinez of his RNC chairmanship. Why, well, he was a Cuban immigrant. Didnt even give him a chance. One term Senator, why? Well, because he was a Cuban immigrant. Martinez forgot, that in the republican party, that you can not be the face of the republican party, if you have a Spanish tongue.

Xenophes are the republican party. That is why they vote republican. And that is exactly why they will get their butts kicked in the upcoming election. America is a nation of immigrants. And the xenophic party that is the racist republican party will brutally find that out in November.

LOL, the republican party hates Mccain (because) he isnt racist xenophic. But that doesnt mean that the racist republicans that surround Mccain wont be racist. In fact, Bush wasnt racist, but the conservatives that surround Bush were racist. That is why the conservatives in the Justice Department systemically presecuted Cuban exiles during the last eight years. Often times dragging them into conservative jurisdiction for criminal prosecution.


Also, the muslims arent what you should concern you Manuel. The expansion of communist in Europe and Latin America should be of more concern to you.

But, of course, you dont want to acknowledge the growth of communist the last eight years.


And you call yourself an anti-communist.

Raquel Marrero Yanes

"¡Abajo Machado!" era el clamor popular en Cuba en los primeros días de agosto de 1933, cuando se desencadena en todo el país una huelga general revolucionaria, acción que derrocó la tiranía de Gerardo Machado y Morales.

En agosto de 1933 el pueblo cubano aceptaba como única condición el derrocamiento del régimen.

Los efectos de la profunda y prolongada crisis económica mundial de 1929 y la torpe política sustentada en el terror y los crímenes, que gozaba del apoyo y simpatía de la banca yanki y nativa, pusieron al régimen machadista en aprieto. La oligarquía criolla y la embajada norteamericana en La Habana no pudieron impedir entonces la huelga que estremeció a toda la nación y alcanzó insospechadas proporciones. No se trataba de reivindicaciones económicas, la demanda era una sola: ¡que se fuera Machado!

El sanguinario gobernante, trascendió a la posteridad con el bien ganado sobrenombre del "asno con garras", que le puso Rubén Martínez Villena. en los ocho años de "machadato", se recrudeció el crimen político contra sus opositores y la persecución de dirigentes obreros y estudiantiles. El movimiento obrero y popular fue aplastado una y otra vez a sangre y fuego, dando lugar a un ascenso de la conciencia antimperialista y al pensamiento político revolucionario de las masas.

"Ninguna huelga durará más de 24 horas bajo mi gobierno" —solía decir. Sin embargo, en más de una ocasión La Habana se estremeció con manifestaciones contra la tiranía.

A finales de julio de 1933 el movimiento obrero logró convertir un paro local de pequeños propietarios de ómnibus urbanos en la capital en una huelga, que se propagó a otros sectores laborales en todo el país. Esas luchas llegaron a su punto culminante el 5 de agosto, en una huelga general. El día 7 los esbirros de Machado ametrallaban al pueblo en las calles de La Habana, con lo que creció la indignación y la determinación de derribar al tirano.

El país se paralizó y Machado perdió el control del Ejército. Alarmada por la situación cubana, la administración estadounidense de Franklin Delano Roosevelt fraguó una intervención, esta vez sin marines ni cañones, sino con el envío a Cuba del embajador Benjamin Summer Welles, como elemento mediador para encontrar una salida a la crisis. Pero no contó en ningún momento con organizaciones revolucionarias como el Ala Izquierda Estudiantil, el Directorio Estudiantil, la Confederación Nacional Obrera de Cuba y el Partido Comunista, factores que desempeñaron un papel decisivo en el derrocamiento del régimen. La mediación de Welles se vio sobrepasada por los acontecimientos.

El 12 de agosto de 1933 Machado abandonó el Palacio Presidencial y huyó en avión hacia Nassau, Bahamas. Terminaba así su nefasto mandato. La fecha marcó un momento culminante en la lucha del pueblo cubano, aunque no fructificaron las ansias de libertad y soberanía nacionales, pues al caer el tirano Estados Unidos impuso un gobierno títere, y frustró con ello el triunfo popular. Lo anterior corroboró cuán necesaria era la unidad para alcanzar la definitiva independencia.

Chairman Bill Gwatney died at 3:59 Wednesday afternoon after gunman Manuel A Tellechea entered his Little Rock office and shot him several times in the upper body, Little Rock Police Lt. Terry Hastings said.

Authorities confirmed the news shortly after former President Clinton and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton released a statement expressing their condolences.

“We are deeply saddened by the news that Bill Gwatney has passed away,” the former governor and first lady of Arkansas said. “His leadership and commitment to Arkansas and this country have always inspired us and those who had the opportunity to know him.”

The shooting suspect, a white male, fled the scene in a Toyota Tercel Wednesday afternoon after a police chase ended in gunfire, Hastings said.

Authorities are working to confirm Tellechea address in NJ , but Hastings said there was no indication that he was a former employee. He said police were investigating for possible motives, as well as why the suspect went into the Arkansas Baptist State Convention brandishing a gun and a cuban machete

Being Busy with my new job I haven't had much time to write a new article for my site, let alone check up on the latest happenings in blogdom. Today I had just the chance and in going through the usual circles I find here that there is a "guess who" ass hole that some here are refering to as John. Since there are two Johns that visit this site, and I am unware of the status of the other John, I would like to make it clear that "guess who" isn't me (check the ip address). I could never side with castro, not with how my parents and grandparents were treated by the regime. Also, I no longer use Nom de plume's. If I don't have the cojones to write something down with my name attached, then I won't write it.

On a side note: From the past articles I've read I must give kudos on the direction your blog has taken Manny. Obviously the fantomas' of the world must be dealt with, but there's less gossip and people bashing and more issues to be tackled--I new you had it in you. BTW: since when was KC's blog invitation only? That was kind of surprising.

John the Good:

I'm glad you are still with us and thank-you for your kind words about RCAB. The credit, however, does not belong to us but to Babalú.

It's been several weeks since I've had occasion to take Babalú to task for making a derogatory statement about Cubans or calling for some national hecatomb to befall them.

Have they finally figured it out?

Did our last wrangle about "Cuban balls" finally knock some sense into them?

Do they now have a sticker posted over their computers that reads:

THE ENEMY IS CASTRO, NOT THE CUBAN PEOPLE

I hope so.

P.S. Killcastro is on hiatus. He has not posted in a long time.
