This might come as a surprise to some, but surely not to me.
Translation mine. Links as in original.I’ve long disregarded any “information” published on the Babalu Blog as crapaganda, and I know better than to take seriously anyone citing them as a source (unless, of course, they’re actually critical of the Babalu babblers, and take the time to debunk the blog’s rank nonsense). The Babalu Blog is not only anti-Castro, but by extension anti-Chavecito, racistly anti-Evo, and, generally, just anti-anything-good-going-on-in-Latin-America. They’d rather see impoverished Latin Americans die than get free healthcare from Cuban doctors, and would rather see them go illiterate and jobless than learning to read and improve their lives using the highly successful “Yo Sí Puedo” Cuban method. They’re a bunch of vicious, cowardly cyber-thugs with a hatred of real liberty, in short. It doesn’t surprise me that they would be cheerleading for gore-porn video games which are now being used to promote terrorism–oh, sorry, “regime change”–against not only Venezuela, but Cuba as well. It’s worth noting that such games have been banned in Venezuela for blatantly promoting violent crime. (And not only there, either.)I also used to look down my nose at Yoani Sánchez and take nothing she says as anything but a joke, or perhaps the product of her own Münchausen syndrome. Now I can revise my stance to say that she is not only a self-centred narcissist who goes to ridiculous lengths to pwn herself, but a terrorism supporter, as well. And her blithe dismissal of 73 innocent people’s deaths as a “smokescreen” shows just what a sick little wretch she really is.What I’d really like to know, though, is why does the Miami Herald‘s Spanish-speaking sister support terrorism? Isn’t there supposed to be a war against it going on in the US? Oh. I see. Cuba, as usual, doesn’t count as a victim of terrorism. That’s a “smokescreen”, too, I take it. Or maybe, seeing as it was the CIA paying and training the odious Luis Posada Carriles to place bombs and blow up planes, it’s just another black op–“Call of Duty” style. Of course they’re going to protect him until the day he dies!I won’t be holding my breath for the day any of them steps up to condemn terrorism. They are all clearly unapologetic mouthpieces for it. They all belong in jail, but I won’t be holding my breath for that, either.PS: Before any other video gamers out there start chiding me on how I’m being unfair to the makers of the game referenced above, hold your electrons. If you think the military and the spook agencies aren’t using video games to recruit you as a professional killer, you had better read this. The Pentagon and the CIA are doing EXACTLY that. And they have been for quite a few years now. And yes, there is some concern that the “game” mentality is infiltrating warfare, too, specifically with the use of Predator drones. A generation of soldier-kids raised on video games could have a lot of tragic, yet quite foreseen consequences.
The newspaper, El Nuevo Herald, of Miami, has published an article in which one of its columnists thanks the creators of the video game Call of Duty: Black Ops for allowing him to “live the dream of all Cubans who love liberty.”The author of the article signed it Val Prieto, “director and founder” of a publication called Babalublog.com. The vocation of Mr. Prieto is not a joke; in a highlighted area on Babalublog.com there is a section called “Loving Brothers”, and, alongside photos of Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista and Luis Posada Carriles, it invites readers to a dinner with the selfsame Posada Carriles, the confessed author of the terrorist bombing of a Cuban airplane in which 73 people died.In the upper left-hand corner, there are words of praise for the blog from the much-awarded Cuban blogger, Yoani Sánchez. This person has referred to Posada Carriles thusly: “A political subject that does not interest people. It’s a smokescreen”. Now we know why.
