'Miracle' Obama hasn't been assassinated: Castro


www.abc.net.au

Former Cuban president Fidel Castro says American society is marked by "profound racism" and it is a "pure miracle" that US presidential hopeful Barack Obama has not been assassinated.

"Profound racism exists in the United States," Mr Castro wrote in a commentary that appeared on the website Cubadebate as he weighed in on the US presidential race ahead of the November 4 election.

I must admit I have thought the same thing for a while. America seems to have more than it share of fundamentalist, white extremists and militia groups. But then again I have always thought that political assassinations are orchestrated and initiated by our old pals the NWO. So given the obvious NWO connections to both candidates I guess they are both safe – for now. Oh, and I loved Castro’s thoughts on Sarah Palin hehehehehe

Mr Castro also mocked Senator McCain's poor grades at the naval academy and said Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin "knew nothing at all about anything."

Hahaha wow that is classic. That pretty much sums up Palin.

There he is rearing his ugly head just for a photo op.

Like his opinion matters. He should know about racism, Cuba is a very racist country. It always was and it always will be.

Blacks still sit at the rear of the bus down there.

Castro belittling McCain/Palin is tantamount to Osama Binladen promoting John Kerry.If Castro dislikes McCain/Palin,that makes them a more acceptable vote imo.

And here comes the unpopular response . . .

While I'm cetainly not a "Castro Sympathizer", it's funny how the "truth" loses it's validity when spoken by someone we don't like. We need look no further than the recent GOP rallies to support his claims. "Terrorist, Kill him, etc" were all heard being shouted by those that fall for the media and party propaganda. For the record, I don't support Obama or McCain. However, Castro's opinions aren't any less valid than any of ours . . . in fact, I'm willing to bet Castro has much more knowledge on how America really works than ANY of the posters on ATS . . . or the media zombies. When people claim this is a racist country or that it's filled with zealots and uncompassionate pilagers . . . everyone's hair catches fire and the "how dare they" or "what about you" responses start flying from our nationalistic collective. Unfortunately, just because you don't like them doesn't mean it's not true. History (and this current election) shows us that it is.

I could not agree more. No one would ever take anything from Mr C. before all of this financial mess started. Now we see we are screwed, and opponents now seem to be the most likely source of truth.

The prejudice of Englishmen, in favor of their own government by king, lords, and commons, arises as much or more from national pride than reason. Individuals are undoubtedly safer in England than in some other countries, but the will of the king is as much the law of the land in Britain as in France, with this difference, that instead of proceeding directly from his mouth, it is handed to the people under the most formidable shape of an act of parliament. For the fate of Charles the First, hath only made kings more subtle not more just.

Common Sense - Thomas Paine (1776)


Just switch England with U.S.A. and "king" with "ruling elite". . . and voila! This essay rings just as true today about where this country has ended up . . . I'm sure to the dismay of our founding fathers.

He also knows a thing or two about assassination attempts as well.

If Obama gets knocked off before the election, I can't imagine the powder keg that would erupt amongst the populace.

I'm surprised Bush nor Cheney have been assassinated. Hell, I've considered it, but since I don't want to go down as a John Wilkes Booth or Lee Harvey Oswald, I'll pass. However, there has got to be someone out there who is a little nuts and a little pissed off.

If JFK can be assassinated, why can't these two butt#s?

What are you talking about? Can you provide any links to support that?

According to this: www.experiencefestival.com...

Castro is an Atheist.


Castro is an atheist and has not been a practicing Roman Catholic since his childhood. Pope John XXIII excommunicated Castro on January 3, 1962 on the basis of a 1949 decree by Pope Pius XII forbidding Catholics from supporting communist governments. For Castro, who had previously renounced his Catholic faith, this was an event of very little consequence, nor was it expected to be otherwise.

Castro is an Atheist. I guess that goes hand in hand with Communism, although i dont really know.

Funny to see such comments coming from the leader of a country that has plenty of its own racism as dgtempe pointed out.

For such a"racist country" like America it sure is interesting that one of our "finalists" for the highest office in the land is black.

Isn't Castro dead? Oh wait... we don't know because nothing in Cuba is allowed to be spoken about unless it has Fidel/Raul's approval. And yet these are the people criticizing America's citizens for being racist.

All American citizens should pay close attention to what this father of freedom has said and correct their ways to be more freedom-loving and equality-loving like he is.

heh.
I don't think he has seen the recent coverage of McCain yet, with him stating that Obama isn't a Muslim/arab/socialist/communist/terrorist/anti-christ/baby eater/etc etc etc.

McCain/Palin's "Just who is Obama????" strategy has failed, and at least McCain finally recognized that enough to come out and publicly defend Obama to try and calm down his (McCain's) riotous followers. I honestly don't think they thought it would be taken to the level that it was by certain fringes of their supporters.

And, for all those who figuratively speaking, have their fingers in their ears going "la la la I can't hear you" about the Castro thing.. You either listen to what the man says, or you don't. Don't make up lies about it... (and yet again, we have someone on this thread doing the ol' "Guilt by (fabricated) association" strategy.).......
Classic republican strategy.......eh......Nothing changes.

Actually coming from an ignorant tyrant that is rather quite the compliment. Fidel is an oppressive joke, and he has absolutely no room to speak.

Actually the strategy has worked quite well, and will continue to work. Senator Obama just dropped 4 Points in the Polls. Not to mention that it worked for Senator Clinton as well. Once she began going Negative, she started taking nearly 2/3 of the Vote in the Primary runs against Senator Obama. Why you ask? Because the Negativity is based upon Facts and Truth.

On another note, lol who is Fidel Castro to discuss "Racism"? In Cuba you are classified in Society not just based upon your Skin Color, but also the Shade of Whatever Color you are. The same goes for all Latin American Nations. In Cuba you have something like Two-Dozen "Classes" of Race Based Social Status.

It's a bigger miracle that the U.S. hasn't assassinated Castro years ago, racism exist in America, but it is not "profound." Castro is just seeking attention because he no longer holds the seat of power.

I don't know where you get your info on Cuba, but black people don't sit at the back of anything. Take it from a Cuban.
