Three of these men were U.S. citizens, the other a legal U.S. resident. Among the murdered was Armando Alejandre Jr., who came to the U.S. at age ten in 1960. His first order of business upon reaching the age of 18 was fulfilling his dream of becoming a U.S. citizen. His next was joining the United States Marine Corps and volunteering for service in Vietnam. He returned with several decorations.
As a member of Brothers to the Rescue, Alejandre often dropped flowers over the sea, in memory of the thousands who were unable to be rescued in time. So Castro waited for Armando Alejandre Jr. and his Brothers to be carrying these flowers—and made his move, murdering them in cold blood. MIGs against Cessnas. Cannon and rockets against flowers. Details of the atrocity are provided in a book by Matt Lawrence, one of Alejandre’s colleagues in rescue.
The “violence and brutality” Farrell parrots about the rescuers actually involved dropping flowers over the Florida Straits and saving thousands of innocent lives, including thousands of women and children whose only crime was attempting to flee—at enormous risk to their lives – a nation formerly swamped with immigrants.
The premeditated atrocity against Alejandre and his brothers is what added the “manslaughter” and “conspiracy to commit murder” charges (on top of the ones listed above, 26 charges total) against Mike Farrell’s recent propaganda assignment from Castro.
But why pick on Farrell, some might ask?
After all, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter also pleas for these terrorists’ freedom. Worse, he made the plea while an honored quest of the very Stalinist regime they served. “I had the opportunity to meet the families of the five Cuban patriots [the terrorists convicted by a U.S. jury],” said Carter to Castro’s media last year. “I’m well aware of the shortcomings of the U.S. judicial system.”
Consider the scene: the former U.S. President known as the “Elder Statesman” of the U.S.’s majority political party, while an official guest of a state sponsor of terrorism, saw fit to denounce convictions of foreign terrorists twice upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. Carter’s denunciation of the U.S. judicial system was openly broadcast into the microphones of a regime whose legal code was adopted from Cheka chief Felix Dzerzhinsky. “Do not search for evidence,” Dzerzhinsky’s top lieutenant Martin Latsis instructed his hangmen in the Ukraine. “Simply ask him to what class he belongs, what are his origins, education, and profession. Those are the questions that should decide the fate of the accused.”
Upon entering Havana in January 1959, Dzerzhinsky disciple and Castro’s chief hangman Che Guevara adopted the Cheka code almost word for word: “Judicial evidence is an archaic bourgeois detail,” he instructed his “prosecutors.” “We execute and jail from revolutionary conviction.”
These executions would ultimately surpass Hitler’s during the Night of the Long Knives and the rate of jailings would exceed Stalin’s during his Great Terror.
While denouncing the U.S. judicial system from cue cards provided by the regime responsible for all of the above and that curses the country that elected him as “The Great Enemy of Mankind!” (and came within an unapologetic hair of nuking it), Jimmy Carter also hailed Fidel Castro as “an old friend.”
And we’re up in arms over Jane Fonda?
