From our Obsessions of El Niuyortain Bureau
Leave it to El Niuyortain to cover a relatively obscure 90-year-old nun’s death as a news story.
And leave it to that same despicable newspaper to limit its focus focus on the few months in that nun’s life when she dared to challenge the Castro regime and its leftist sympathizers.
El Niuyortain is very proud of the role it played in sending “Cuban Boy” Elian Gonzalez back to hell, and its role in ensuring the failure of this nun’s efforts on behalf of boy and his family.
So, now, as this villain in their story passes away, they have to do a little dance on her grave, to remind the world of their triumph, as well as her perversity, and their fervent love for the Castro regime.
Never mind everything else accomplished by this nun. They’re sole interest in reporting her death is to beat their own chest, like some silverback gorilla, and to rub salt in the festering wound they love to reopen continually in so many Cuban hearts.
Notice, please, how they end this story. Instead of reporting the full truth — that Elian was turned into Fidel’s pet and that he is now a Castronoid robot who can’t even spell Spanish correctly when he parrots statements from the Ministry of Truth — they choose to say instead that he earned “a degree in industrial engineering.”
Yeah, some happy ending. Pa’l carajo, cabrones.
From You-Know-Who, Granma North:
Sister Jeanne O’Laughlin, who was thrust into national prominence in 2000 during a tumultuous custody battle between the Cuban father of a 6-year-old refugee, Elian Gonzalez, and the boy’s relatives in Miami, died on Tuesday in Adrian, Mich. She was 90.
Her death was confirmed by Sister Peg Albert, the president of Siena Heights University in Adrian. Sister Jeanne, who had had recurring lung cancer since 1996, died at the adjacent Dominican Life Center, where she had been living for several years…
In early 2000 she sought in vain to ensure that Elian could stay temporarily with his Miami relatives instead of being returned to his father, who had remained in Cuba, divorced from his wife, after Elian and his mother fled in a rickety boat on Nov. 21, 1999.
In an Op-Ed article for The New York Times, she compared the “strong bond” that had developed between Elian and the Miami cousin who was caring for him with the absence of his father.
“It troubles me that Elian’s father has not come to the United States,” she wrote. “What, if not fear, could keep a person from making a 30-minute trip to reclaim his son? And what might Elian’s father fear, if not the authoritarian Cuban government itself?
“The final challenge of finding the best way for Elian to heal and be nurtured,” she added, “should lie with a court that has experience in seeking the best interests of children.”
She was lauded and vilified in equal measure, but in the end she failed to persuade her friend, Attorney General Janet Reno, a South Florida native, to let Elian remain. The courts ruled against the Miami relatives, and armed federal agents raided their home before dawn on the day before Easter in 2000 and seized Elian. The boy was returned to Cuba, where he remained, earning a degree in industrial engineering.
