“A national reparations policy is a moral, democratic, and economic imperative.” (Danny Glover before a House Judiciary panel, June 19.)

So apparently “morality” and “democracy” are issues of enormous concern for Danny Glover, no? Well: 

“My heart beat faster!–This is one of the most important moments in my life!” said a hyperventilating Danny Glover while visiting the Che Guevara memorial in Santa Clara, Cuba during one of his frequent red-carpet visits to Stalinist, terror-sponsoring Cuba where he renders honor and tribute to the mass-murdering terrorist whose lifelong craving was to NUKE Glover’s homeland–and whose regime jailed and tortured the most and longest-suffering BLACK political prisoners in the modern history of the Western Hemisphere.

“I watched the evisceration of the city and people’s lives because of crack cocaine and mass incarceration…I think we have to kind of look at racism and all of its manifestations…This country is trapped in not telling the truth.” (Danny Glover before a House Judiciary panel, June 19.)

So apparently Danny Glover is not indifferent to “mass-incarceration,” “racism” and governmental lying. But he seems a bit topsy-turvy about identifying the top practitioners of these injustices. To hear Glover tell it, the worst malefactors, run—not the Stalinist dictatorship that often welcomes him—but the homeland that made him a multi-millionaire and welcomes him as a congressional witness and commentator.  

In fact, even by Hollywood standards Danny Glover’s fondness for Stalinist Cuba seems overwrought, which is really saying something, considering that: 

"Fidel Castro is a genius! We spoke about everything. Castro is a humanist like President Clinton. Cuba is simply a paradise!" -Jack Nicholson

"Socialism works. I think Cuba might prove that." -Chevy Chase

"Castro is very selfless and moral, one of the world's wisest men" -Oliver Stone

"If you believe in freedom, if you believe in justice, if you believe in democracy, you have no choice but to support Fidel Castro!" -Harry Belafonte

"It was an experience of a lifetime to sit only a few feet away from Fidel Castro." -Kevin Costner

"The eight most important hours of my life," said Stephen Spielberg, describing his dinner with Castro. 

“My biggest regret is I never got to go to bed with Che Guevara,” lamented Jane Fonda, who according to her biographer Patricia Bosworth, actually used the “f” word in describing her lifelong lament. 

“The Cuban people are among the happiest people I have ever met…. And the vast majority love Fidel Castro.” -PETA member Woody Harrelson—who recently petitioned Texas Gov. Abbot to ban “the cruelty” of Texas barbecues, but who warmly-- and literally-- bear-hugs Fidel Castro.

(All quotes, etc. above painstakingly documented here.)

So clearly Danny Glover has some pretty stiff competition in the Castro-heraldry sweepstakes.  But his competition with Jane Fonda, as mentioned in this article’s title, doesn’t boil down to some off-the-cuff utterances. No, instead they consist of actual acts, and ones (which surely seem to) give aid and comfort to the enemy. To wit:

On the same visit where the ecstatic Danny Glover honored the shrine of Che Guevara, he also honored and yukked it up with a KGB–trained Cuban spy who was once serving two life terms after a conviction for conspiracy to murder U.S. citizens. His name is Gerardo Hernandez and if my phrase “yukking it up” strikes you as a bit hyperbolic, I invite you to study Glover’s face and form your own opinion.

On September 14, 1998, the FBI uncovered a Castro spy ring in Miami and arrested 10 of them. Five were convicted including Gerardo Hernandez and they became known as “The Cuban Five” in Castroite parlance.

According to the FBI's affidavit, these Castro agents were engaged in, among other acts:

• Gathering intelligence against the Boca Chica Air Naval Station in Key West, the McDill Air Force Base in Tampa and the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command in Homestead, Fla.

• Compiling the names, home addresses and medical files of the U.S. Southern Command's top officers, along with those of hundreds of officers stationed at Boca Chica.

• Infiltrating the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command.

• Sending letter bombs to Cuban-Americans.

• Spying on McDill Air Force Base, the U.S. armed forces' worldwide headquarters for fighting "low-intensity" conflicts.

• Locating entry points into Florida for smuggling explosive material.

Apparently everything above made Danny Glover’s heart sing. But there was more. Glover’s yukking-up buddy Gerardo Hernandez was also convicted of conspiracy to murder three American citizens. In 2014 Obama released this convicted communist spy/murderer as part of his sniveling surrender (“opening”, according to the Democrat/media complex) to the Castro-Crime-and-Terror-Sponsoring-Syndicate (“Cuba” according to the Democrat/media complex).

The yukking-up ceremony in Cuba also included Glover being awarded the coveted “Medal of Friendship” by the Castro regime. No doubt Glover’s mimicry of many Democrat luminaries (and Jeff Flake) by heartily condemning (from foreign enemy shores) Trump’s recently announced Cuba policy played a key role in his earning of the mass-murdering, terror-sponsoring Castro regime’s coveted “Medal of Friendship.”
