With a little help from her friendly Dad (Paul) Stella McCartney has made quite a name for herself as an ultra-chic fashion designer. This week she introduced her spring line on Manhattan’s Elizabeth Street with a Cuba-themed garden party where Fidel Castro and Che Guevara featured among the main props of the cheeky soiree.
The Stalinist mass-murderers featured both as mannequins and as live costumed humans who walked around posing for pictures with the ultra-chic models and guests along with the delighted (and scrupulously vegetarian) hostess.
In keeping with Stella Mc Cartney’s “anti-cruelty” beliefs the event featured strictly vegetarian foodstuffs. None of that musty “generation-gap” stuff for Stella. That stuff is “SOOOO 60’s” after all. Instead she’s a proud Daddy’s girl, and as such a proud vegetarian and PETA spokesperson. Indeed, Stella ritually denounces many fellow fashion designers as “heartless” should leather or-- heaven forbid!—fur show up in any of their creations.
“The collection is a celebration of spring: new life, color, hope, energy and fun!” gushed McCartney about her spring line. “It’s about flowers and color and I love designing spring. Cuba is just to have some fun. Fun on top of fun!”
“Cuba libre!” was how Style titled the event.
In case any Saturday Night Live or Comedy Central writers are perusing Townhall today here's a few ideas for scripts and skits:
The main props to Stella Mc Cartney’s “Fun, Joy, Life and Anti-Cruelty!”- themed garden party founded a regime that jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s during the Great Terror and murdered more Cubans in his first three years in power than Hitler’s murdered Germans during his first six. Her “Peace & Love” icons also craved—and came closest of anyone in history-- to wantonly igniting a world-wide nuclear war.
In the above process the props to Stella Mc Cartney’s “Fun!” themed party converted a nation with a higher per-capita income than half of Europe and a huge influx of immigrants into one that repels Haitians and boasts the highest suicide rate in the Western Hemisphere.
Over twenty-times as many Cubans have died attempting to escape the “Fun!” Cuba of Stella Mc Cartney’s garden party props as Germans died trying to escape East Germany. And the Cubans died much more horribly; of exposure, thirst, drowning or eaten alive by sharks. The (relatively) lucky ones were machine-gunned to death much like East Berlin escapees.
Fidel Castro and Che Guevara also made it a criminal offense for their Cuban subjects to listen to Stella's Dad's music. During the mid 60’s Castro and Che’s ever-vigilant STASI-trained secret police was very scrupulous in ferreting out the counter-revolutionary crime of listening to the Beatles. The hapless Cuban youths detected in this crime were herded into forced labor camps at Soviet bayonet point (Full documentation for these seemingly preposterous claims, including accounts by Cuban torture-victims themselves can be found here.)
Among Stella's Dad's most famous quotes we find: "All You Need is Love!"
Well, among the cheekiest quotes by her garden-party props and icons we find these:
* “My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood!"
* “Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any surrendered enemy that falls in my hands! With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!”
*“I’d like to confess, papa, at that moment I discovered that I really like killing.”
*“Hatred is the central element of our struggle!... Hatred that is intransigent…Hatred so violent that it propels a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him violent and cold- blooded killing machine…We reject any peaceful approach. Violence is inevitable. To establish socialism rivers of blood must flow. “
* If the nuclear missiles had remained (in Cuba) we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City. The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!” (Full documentation for all of the above quotes can be found here.)
Thus spaketh the icon of flower-children, and apparently of the daughter of one very famous flower child. Please note: had Nikita Khrushchev had not yanked the nuclear missiles from her garden party icon in the nick of time on that fateful October 28th of 1962, the very site of Stella Mc Cartney’s garden party would be radioactive.
The regime founded by Stella Mc Cartney’s fun-loving party props jailed and tortured 35,150 Cuban women for political crimes, a totalitarian horror utterly unknown—not only in Cuba—but in the Western Hemisphere until her party icons assumed absolute power to world applause. Some of these Cuban ladies suffered twice as long in Castro’s Gulag as Alexander Solzhenitsyn suffered in Stalin’s.
Their prison conditions were described by former political prisoner Maritza Lugo. “The punishment cells measure 3 feet wide by 6 feet long. The toilet consists of an 8 inch hole in the ground through which cockroaches and rats enter, especially in cool temperatures the rat come inside to seek the warmth of our bodies and we were often bitten. The suicide rate among women prisoners was very high.” When suffering their tortures most of these women were in their 20’s.
An estimated 16,000 Cubans were murdered by firing squad by Stella Mc Cartney’s garden party icons. Here we see videos of Stella's fashion icons putting their words into action. (Warning, graphic content.)
Murder on video hardly started with ISIS. The ones above on the orders of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro date from 1959. Some of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s murder victims were women much younger than Stella Mc Cartney. On Christmas Eve of 1961 a young Cuban woman named Juana Figueroa Diaz spat in the face of the executioners who were binding and gagging her. Castro and Che’s Russian-trained secret police had found her guilty of feeding and hiding “bandits” (Cuban rednecks who took up arms to fight the Stalinist theft of their land to build Soviet –style Kolkhozes.) When the blast from Castroite firing squad demolished her face and torso Juana was six months pregnant.
Thousands of Cuban women have drowned, died of thirst or have been eaten alive by sharks attempting to flee the horrors imposed on the Cuban people by Stella Mc Cartney’s “FUN(!)” party icons. This from a nation formerly richer than half the nations of Europe whose citizens considered the U.S. their “vacation playground.” Yes in 1953 more Cubans vacationed (then voluntarily returned home) from the U.S. than Americans vacationed in Cuba.
Alas! The above item doesn’t appear in Godfather II so it’s mostly unknown.
