Chris Wallace: “Are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia groups…”
President Trump: “Sure…What do you want to call them? Give me a name.”
Chris Wallace: “White supremacists and right-wing militias.”
BIDEN: “Proud Boys”
Trump: “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by. But I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the left.”
Never mind that the leader of “white supremacist” Proud Boys is a Cuban-American of mixed white and black ancestry, who proudly bills himself as “afro-Cuban.” In others words he’s a “mulatto.” In other words he’s every bit as “black” (by U.S. standards) as Kamala Harris or even Barack Obama. In fact, he’s probably much blacker than Black Lives Matter publicist Shaun King.
But enough about race. The issue here is Chris Wallace and Joe Biden’s grotesque double-standard in requesting “condemnation” and “disavowal” of “hate groups,” by presidential candidates.
Let’s take a terror-sponsoring, mass-murdering regime that jailed and tortured at rates surpassing Stalin’s during the Great Terror (including the longest-suffering black political prisoners in modern history of the Western Hemisphere), that murdered more political prisoners in its first three years in power than Hitler’s murdered in its first six, that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war -- and whose lifelong obsession is the destruction of the U.S.
For sane people “disavowing” and/or condemning such a regime would display more of the attributes making for an effective U.S. president than would any condemnation of the “Proud Boys,” especially as this terror-sponsoring regime sits on our very doorstep, geographically speaking, and its agents are responsible for the most damaging penetration of our Defense Department since the “end” of the Cold War.
That this regime (as amply demonstrated by its KGB-founded and mentored media) endorses Biden didn’t seem to bother Chris Wallace, much less Joe Biden, whose wife actually made a tourism commercial to boost the income of this terror-sponsoring regime—and did so in full and proud partnership with a Cuban spy who had been expelled from the U.S. for espionage!
If the above sounds too outrageous to possibly be true, I invite you to peruse the rapturous reception Jill Biden received from Cuba’s media along with part of the tourism commercial itself here.
But maybe it’s unfair to single out one Democrat (even is he is the presidential candidate) for his odes to Castroism? After all, when perusing the historical record, such love songs to the regime whose lifelong obsession is the destruction of the U.S. seem practically like a Democrat ritual. A sampling:
“Everybody was totally convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world and all of the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro. They forgot that he educated their kids, gave their kids health care, totally transformed the society,” said former candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination Bernie Sanders.
In fact, Bernie Sanders has many Democrat precursors in this department. To wit:
“Fidel Castro first and foremost is and always has been a committed egalitarian. He wanted a system that provided the basic needs to all Cuba has superb systems of health care and universal education…We greeted each other as old friends," commented former President of the United States and official “Elder Statesman” of the Democrat Party, Jimmy Carter.
“Fidel Castro is very shy and sensitive, I frankly like him and regard him as a friend,” noted Democrat presidential candidate, Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, and “Conscience of the Democrat party” George McGovern.
“Viva Fidel! Viva Che!,” said two-time candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination Jesse Jackson, bellowing while arm in arm with Fidel Castro himself in 1984.
“Countries like Cuba or Canada or Russia or a lot of places in this world spend half what we spend per capita and they got better health outcomes than we do," claimed Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee Rep. Keith Ellison.
“Medical care–the life expectancy of Cubans is equivalent to that of the United States, despite it being a very poor country, because they have access to health care. That’s a huge achievement. They should be congratulated!” exclaimed Democrat U.S. President Barack Obama.
And lest anyone think Obama was blustering empty campaign rhetoric, he proved the veracity of his praise for the sh*thole level, sub-third-world healthcare in Stalinist Cuba by actually putting his pen where his mouth was:
“The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (under Obama) and the Cuban government on Monday signed a memorandum of understanding to encourage cooperation between the two countries on health matters…Cuba has made significant contributions to health and science,” HHS Secretary (under Obama) Sylvia Mathews Burwell said in a statement. “This new collaboration is a historic opportunity for two nations to build on each other’s knowledge and experience, and benefit biomedical research and public health at large.”
Of course it’s unfair to condemn a son for the sins of his father. But just for fun, let’s have a look at how Chris Wallace’s father reacted while hob-knobbing with Fidel Castro. Don’t miss the smile on his beaming face.
