John McCain Passed His Test

Recently, this blog covered the effects of socialism and communism and looked at how Obama's ideology stacks up. Notably, in one of his Texas campaign offices, more than one flag of militant Che Guevara hangs on the wall, and the now-distanced Bill Ayers proudly displayed his communist roots recently, donning a shirt with the "Che" star. Barack Obama's connections to socialism and communism are there for those who choose to see the truth. While John McCain has faced and fought our enemies, Barack Obama is embraced by them.

American Thinker's Humberto Fontova took a deeper look at Obama's connection with Fidel Castro —and the communist's multiple endorsements of Obama—and praises John McCain's heroic support of our country.

Senator Biden's asinine comment about the forthcoming president's "test" provoked John McCain's quick rejoinder: "I've already been tested." Then that French video of the wounded John McCain in a Hanoi prison came along as stark proof.

While recently endorsing Barack Obama (for the second time), Fidel Castro made a point to insult the brave and grievously wounded man featured in that video as, "a tool of the Miami Mafia." (i.e. Americans of Cuban heritage who refused to serve as Castro's tools, and today overwhelmingly refuse to serve as the Democratic party's "Hispanic outreach" tools.)

Fontova notes that Huffington Post and Daily Kos attempted to cast a former victim of Castro's torture camps as a "terrorist," and lamented his connection with Sen. John McCain.

Let Democrats equate an anti-communist U.S. citizen who honorably stood up to 28 years of torture by sadists serving a Stalinist regime that denounced the U.S. as "a vulture preying on humanity!" and came closest to nuking us, to Bill Ayers. And let that Stalinist regime's dictator endorse their candidate. No Republican campaign ad could make the ramifications of this election any clearer.

And the article explains the source of this connection:

When John McCain addressed a crowd of Bay of Pigs veterans and former Cuban political prisoners last year he learned that he and his fellow POW's in North Vietnam had shared torturers with the Cuban-American freedom fighters then hosting and applauding him, which included the longest-suffering political prisoners in modern history, having suffered prison camps, forced labor and torture chambers for a period three times as long in the Castro/Che Gulag as Alexander Solzhenytzin suffered in Stalin's Gulag.

"Anything that I and my friends might have experienced is nothing - nothing -- compared with what some of the men in this room went through," a gracious John McCain said as many of his hosts misted up.

"I'm introducing a man who suffered the prisons, as I did," said Roberto Martin-Perez, who introduced McCain on the podium. "This honor that's been conferred upon me is not only mine but the thousands of victims who have suffered because of this terrible doctrine' (Communism.)" Senor Martin-Perez suffered 28 years in Castro's Gulag, repeatedly spitting in the face of the Communist torturers who demanded his "confession."

Fontova goes on to discuss the brutality of North Vietnamese torturers who were trained by Castro through his "Cuba Project." The POWs called the worst of their torturers "Fidel."

The communists titled their torture program "the Cuba Project," and it took place during 67-68 primarily at the Cu Loc POW camp (also known as "The Zoo") on the southwestern edge of Hanoi. In brief, this "Cuba Project" was a Joseph Mengelese experiment run by Castroite Cubans to determine how much physical and psychological agony a human can endure before cracking.

While Che Guevara is hailed by some as a heroic rebel, the truth uncovers a cowardly militant who joined forces with a sadistic, would-be dictatator. His mantra propogated extreme, militant violence: "Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine. This is what our soldiers must become ..." Those like Bill Ayers seek to follow in his footsteps to overthrow the government in the name of communism. Ayers' goal has never changed, he has merely resigned himself over the last 25 years to another "underground" methodology—communism (disguised as "social justice") implemented under our noses throughout our school systems.

Fontova reviews Castro's endorsement of Obama:

"A profound racism exists in the U.S.," continues Fidel Castro in his Obama-endorsement. "It's a miracle that the Democratic candidate has not suffered the fate of other Americans who dreamed of equality and justice like Malcolm X and Martin Luther King."

For the record: Fidel Castro, forcibly overthrew a black Cuban head of state (Fulgencio Batista) and replaced his government with one where only nine percent of the ruling Stalinist party is black and where the prison population is 80- 90 percent black. He jailed the longest suffering black political prisoner of modern history (Eusebio Penalver who suffered longer in Castro's dungeon's than Nelson Mandela suffered in South Africa's.) He sentenced other blacks (Dr Elias Biscet, Jorge Antunez) to 20 year sentences essentially for quoting Martin Luther King Jr. in a public square.

What is the tie then that binds Castro and Obama? We can explore with a little association: Castro and Hugo Chavez are allies; Bill Ayers and Hugo Chavez are allies; Bill Ayers idolizes Che Guevara and Fidel Castro; Obama has Che Guevara flags hanging in his American campaign offices; Raila Odinga, who Obama supported in Kenya through a series of appearances (and more), named one of his children after Castro, Fidel Castro Odinga. Is this stretching? American Thinker identifies a deeper connection:

Actually, Castroites have been associates of Obama's associates for decades. "I have been affiliated with the Cuba Council of Churches since the 1980s," boasted Rev. Jeremiah Wright in a sermon on July 16, 2006. "I have several close Cuban friends who work with the Cuba Council of Churches and you have heard me preach about our affiliation and the Black Theology Project's trips to Cuba. The Cuban Council of Churches has been a non-partisan global mission partner for decades. I have worked with them for two decades."

"Non-partisan," Reverend Wright? Not according to Cuban intelligence defector Juan Vives, who from hands-on experience reports that the Cuba Council of Churches is in fact an arm of Cuba's ICAP (Instituto Cubano de Amistad con los Pueblos) itself an arm of Cuba's DGI, Cuba's secret police, founded and mentored by the KGB and East German STASI. The ICAP's long-time chieftain was Rene Cruz Rodriguez, perhaps one of Reverend Jeremiah Wright's "friends."
This murderer headed a Cuban agency that Jeremiah Wright "worked with for decades" by his own admission, and whose staff he regards as "friends." These "friends," arranged the visit for the Rev. Jesse Jackson's [sic] and his 300 person entourage to Havana in 1984, which included Rev. Wright.

"Viva Fidel!" bellowed Reverend Jackson while concluding his speech at the University of Havana during that visit. "Viva Che Guevara!..Long Live our cry of Freedom!"

It's hard for most Americans (this writer among them) to understand the impact of such evils, to understand what our POWs have suffered, what the Jews suffered at the hands of Hitler, what Cubans suffered at the hands of Guevara and Castro. What we can hopefully understand is that we are not immune to attack—even from within our midst. And that's worth thinking about.

This post does not detail the torture which POW Lt. Col. Earl Glenn Cobeil suffered at the hands his North Vietnamese captors (including the noted "Fidel" as mentioned in the text) as part of the "Cuba Project"—the full article at American Thinker covers testimony given at Congressional hearings titled, "The Cuban Torture Program; Torture of American Prisoners by Cuban Agents" held November 1999.
