On January 27, 2011, on an anti-Castro blog, I came across this:
Fidel and Raul forcibly overthrew a Cuban government where Cuban blacks served as President of the Senate, Minister of Agriculture, Chief of Army, and Head of State (Fulgencio Batista, a grandson of slaves who was born in a palm-roofed shack).
Not that you'll learn any of this from the liberals' exclusive educational source on pre-Castro Cuba: the Godfather II movie.
On January 28, 2011, in reference to the riots in Egypt, I came across this:
Michael: [about the unrest in Cuba] We saw a strange thing on our way here. Some rebels were being arrested, and instead of being arrested, one of them pulled the pin on a grenade he had hidden in his jacket. He took himself and the captain of the command with him.
Guest: Ah, the rebels are insane!
Michael: Maybe. But the soldiers are paid to fight; the rebels aren't.
Hyman Roth: What does that tell you?
Michael: They can win.
