Lost in the debate over the fate of little Elian Gonzalez has been the real nature of the Castro regime.
Apologists for Castro, such as the National Council of Churches and the Methodist Church and lawyer Greg Craig (how much money has he made so far off the suffering of this boy and the Gonzalez family?) have carefully sidestepped what the future holds for Elian should he be forced against his will to go back to Cuba.
Yes, we know that a "special compound” has been prepared for him and his family and schoolmates. But what will go on inside that compound?
And what will happen to all members of Elian’s family back in Cardenas? What are those family members going through right this minute?
Conspicuously absent, of course, in the mainstream media has been any skeptical or cynical reporting on the vicious and brutal nature of Castro’s rule.
Cuba’s system of state security was originally modeled on the East German security services, the dreaded Stasi. Fidel Castro, no fool he, from the outset of his regime placed his own brother, Raoul, in charge of the Cuban State Security Services. Their goal: prevent and wipe out any dissent before a challenge to their rule rose to prominence.
The Castro brothers followed the standard Stasi handbook for controlling a population. All sorts of horrific techniques were – and still are – employed. Spying, torture, death squads and drug/psychological manipulation have all been standard fare.
Even Fidel’s own daughter, who years ago defected and now lives in Madrid, is still afraid to speak freely. Her own mother – Fidel’s onetime lover (he didn’t bother to marry the mothers of his children) – is still in Cuba. His daughter predicts that if Elian and his father do go back to Havana, after a year or two of prominence they will "disappear." Why? Because Fidel and his regime cannot afford for father or son to ever escape Havana’s clutches, Castro will have to make that potential problem go away.
Castro’s apologists here repeatedly claim that there are no more "executions" in Cuba. I always ask these "useful idiots" one simple question: "How could any of us possibly know what goes on inside a closed-border police state?"
How do they know what is happening in the basement of some brutal torture-ridden prison? Or maybe it is true that there are no executions today because over the past 41 years the Castro boys have "pruned out" every dissenter. In other words, they have already killed everyone who would dare even think badly of the regime!
The naivete of America’s left would be laughable if it were not also so dangerous.
Last week Erich Mielke died in Germany. This brutal, evil bastard was the head of the East German Stasi from 1957 to the fall of the Berlin Wall. Here are but a few excerpts from last week’s Associated Press obituary. Just these few incidents and quotations demonstrate not only what happened in East Germany but also what is still happening today in Cuba:
"Erich Mielke, who as head of East Germany's dreaded secret police and spy agency compiled vast information on its citizenry, has died. He was 92.
"He was East Germany's most hated man, heading the Ministry of State Security, known as Stasi, that was the key to the Stalinist regime's power until a peaceful democratic revolution toppled it in 1989. Stasi snooped on dissidents and ordinary citizens, placed thousands of agents to spy on top Western officials and sheltered leftist Red Army Faction terrorists from then-West Germany. Under Soviet orders, Mielke's agents even kept tabs on East German communist leaders.
"The all-pervasive domestic network included 85,000 full-time spies and 170,000 voluntary informers. Stasi headquarters, housed in a forbidding high-rise complex in East Berlin, ran files on several million people that are still providing revelations to journalists and academics today.
"Mielke, who relished appearing in public in a medal-laden white uniform, also commanded a nearly 10,000-strong paramilitary force.
"Officials say that some 900 people were killed trying to flee over Communist-constructed barriers to the West from August 1961, when construction on the Berlin Wall started, until February 1989, when the last shooting death was reported. The wall fell nine months later.
"Born in Berlin on Dec. 28, 1907, Mielke joined a German communist youth group in 1921 after World War I. He joined the party in 1925 and worked as a reporter for its newspaper.
"He became a member of the party's paramilitary force and escaped to Belgium after the police killings in Berlin. Moving to Moscow, he attended the elite International Lenin School in the mid-1930s. He fought in the Spanish Civil War in 1936, then returned to the Soviet Union.
"At the end of World War II, he helped organize police in the Soviet-occupied zone of Germany and rose through the security apparatus after East Germany was founded in 1950, becoming Stasi chief in 1957.
"Two days after the Wall opened, he tried to justify himself in a rambling speech to the East German legislature. Delegates laughed as he insisted, 'I love everyone, all people.'
"But his true side was revealed years earlier when he addressed his Stasi subordinates: "All this talk about ‘no executions’ is just twaddle. Of course there are – there must be – executions.' "
This is the same mentality that today runs Cuba. And it is to this island prison camp that America may send this little boy? What a disgrace!
