New York Slimes refers to the word “Freedom” as anti-Government slogan

Good day all. For over 60 years, Cuba has been under the thumb of a Communist dictatorship. With few exceptions, Progressive Liberal Democrats have backed the Communists and Fidel Castro as he crushed any and all freedom in Cuba.

Recently, the Cuban people decided that enough is enough and have started to rebel. They have been protesting, waving banners and flags and demanding Freedom. The reliably corrupt and pro-communist New York Slimes has decried this slogan, calling the word “Freedom” an anti-government slogan. Here are the details from Breitbart:

The New York Times described chants of “freedom!” at thousands-strong peaceful protests in Cuba on Sunday as one of several “anti-government slogans” popular among the congregated. The Times also erroneously reported the protests were about “food and medicine shortages.”

Shouting ‘Freedom’ and other anti-government slogans, hundreds of Cubans took to the streets in cities around the country on Sunday to protest food and medicine shortages, in a remarkable eruption of discontent not seen in nearly 30 years,” the Times wrote.

The Slimes has been pro-communist almost since the 1917 revolution in Russia. They have also been reliably pro-Castro since he took over Cuba 60 years ago. Of course, the reality of what’s happening in Cuba doesn’t fit the worldview of the ivory tower lickspittles on the Slimes editorial board, so they have no choice but to lie about it.

In reality, the thousands of protesters used slogans against socialism and communism to made clear the political nature of their demand: the end of communism on the island.

Not just slogans, they’ve also bee waving American Flags, something else the Slimes staff hates.

The Times coverage also included weaponizing Cuban disinformation by suggesting communist Cuba’s “longstanding economic problems” stem from “the American trade embargo, which cuts off its access to financing and imports.”

In televised remark,” the Times persisted, “Díaz-Canel said … the protests were a form of ‘systemic provocation’ by dissidents doing the bidding of the United States.”

“Within hours of the extraordinary events, the president broke into national television programming to urge government supporters to hit the streets and confront the protesters,” the Times reported, tempering in its translation that Díaz-Canel issued an “order of combat” encouraging civilians to violently assault protesters on the streets.

The Times’ narrow coverage contradicts videos from throughout the island that show both plain-clothed and uniformed state security officers attacking peaceful protesters. Breitbart News reported bystanders in Havana heard sounds of heavy gunfire and beatings of dissidents, while Díaz-Canel called for street “combat” against anyone demanding an end to the regime.

Gee, why am I not surprised that the New York Slimes would be inaccurate flat out lie regarding what was happening in Cuba? It’s not like they actually supported the Castro regime.

The Times has been historically sympathetic to the Castro regime. In the 1950s, while most Cubans supported efforts against then-President Fulgencio Batista organized by more popular leaders, New York Times reporter Herbert Matthews published flattering, and false, reports praising Fidel Castro and his band of Marxists. Matthews’ reports, beginning in 1957, portrayed Castro as a freedom fighter seeking to restore democracy to the island nation and made him appear far more popular than he was on the island.

Matthews was just another communist fellow traveler if not an actual communist agent, just like Walter Duranty.

Upon Castro’s success of establishing a revolutionary socialist state in 1959, Castro claimed in New York City his “greatest ploy” was fooling Matthews. Castro admitted he only had 20 men left at the time of Matthews’ publications but convinced Matthews he had control of a huge army. Matthews’ observations backed this as he wrote, “from the look of things, General Batista cannot possibly hope to suppress the Castro revolt.”

So once again the New York Slimes helped Communists gain power, and as usual, they are working to help them maintain power over the dead bodies of the people.

In 2017, the New York Times published a series of articles praising the legacy of communism, which has killed at least 100 million people.

And now you can see why the New York Slimes thinks the word Freedom is an anti-government slogan. The Slimes should have closed its doors 20 years ago, but rich stupid people keep bailing them out. Perhaps it’s time to start putting these propagandists on trial fro crimes against humanity. As far as I’m concerned, they’re just as guilty as the Nazi propagandists and the Communist propagandists in the deaths of over 100 million people due to their lies.
