Cat Food Sandwiches: The great thing is that soon the Castros will be dead, and the good people of Cuba can rejoin the rest of the world.  Their failed experiment is the greatest testimony to the craziness of communism.


The good people of Cuba were embargoed. By us.

jst3p: BojanglesPaladin: jst3p: You do seem to be spending a lot of time getting poutraged that farkers are mocking them though.

Then you need to pay closer attention.

Being shocked and amazed by the level of insanity and nonsense on free republic is like being shocked and amazed by the level of bigotry and racism on an aryan front website.

Did you miss where I BEGAN by calling them the derp factories?

I see no reason to waste the time, and frankly, people eating that shiat up and then regurgitating it here on Fark is... just dull.

If this thread is dull, why are you still here? I am not a nascar fan, but I don't waste my time in nascar threads telling other farkers what they are allowed to be amused by.


Maybe it's the only way he can get off?

jst3p: If this thread is dull, why are you still here?


Short answer:
Progress bars and a habit of responding when someone addresses me directly.
Longer answer:
I didn't say the thread was dull, I said that the "Freepers be retarded like THIS" is dull. And that it's not a response to comments about what a Fark thread is like.

Dansker: And the specific response implied that your strict focus on Farkers is irrelevant to the subject.


Since it was my comment, I think I am able to determine relevance, regardless of what you might assume someone else's implications might have been, but thank you for your concern.

Why don't you go ahead and start your own part of the conversation? I think we've pretty much covered the ground here.

Don't try to be ingratiating after calling me dull and obtuse.

And I'm not going for gotcha. Your argument has boiled down to claiming someone said you were wrong about Farkers not being outraged, and that's why you feel justified in telling Farkers what they should and shouldn't post.
But that's a lie. Lando did not say you were wrong. He just said something more relevant than you.

I don't think you will see what "the big deal" is about Cuba and America unless you have been exposed to exiled Cubans in America.
To you and me, this is some ancient thing that happened to some other people somewhere. For them it is not.

I know a handful of Cubans and children of Cubans. They have house keys to homes long gone. Photos and deeds of places they can never go back to. They can't visit their parent's graves, or see their home towns.

And in their minds, it's because of Castro. They have parents and cousins and sibling who were killed or brutalized by Castro. They arrived destitute to a country that gave them a home and allowed them to thrive.

There is both a deep, and abiding hatred of Castro's Cuba, and a deep and rooted love for America that can be hard to understand if you haven't spent some time with exiled Cubans.

It may not be entirely rational, but it is strong.

Please don't try to generalize like that. It's really rather insulting.

I never met my grandfather(he died before I was born), but from what my mother told me, he was a fan of Castro - at first. Then Castro let power get to his head, and it all went downhill from there. To say he had a deep, abiding hatred of Castro's Cuba is flat out wrong. If anything, it made him sad. What (in his mind)could have been something awesome was ruined because a man got arrogant. He didn't hold it against Cuba or Castro- he saw it as man's inherent flaws.

When he got to America, he ended up taking what would be the equivalent of a minimum wage job, because his law degree wasn't worth the paper it was printed on here. He was fluent in English already, sonot speaking the language was no excuse. If my family was mad at anyone, it was at Americans, because my grandfather went from being a highly respected judge, to the equivalent of a McDonald's employee. My grandmother, on the other hand, easily got a job as a teacher, probably because a mathematics degree translates from one country to another a lot easier.

Most of that side of my family never actually lived in Florida, or if they did, not for very long. Most of them grew up in the Midwest, and a few grew up in the NY/NJ area. Most of them also do not hate Castro or Cuba, but rather share the same sadness/anger at Americans my grandfather did(he was a smart man who was very influential in the family, from what I'm told). That side of my family is incredibly liberal, and to this day, still don't blame Castro, at lest not in the way you seem to be implying. They may not like him, but to say they hate him is to go too far. Most of them have been advocating for normalizing relations with Cuba, specifically because they think it will help those people still in Cuba, and because they'd like to visit it again. They also think the Cubans in Florida are, to quote my grandmother, "Loud mouthed attention seekers who give the rest of us a bad name."

So yea. Tl;dr: Generalizations are bad. It's never that simple.

I didn't say anything about ALL Cubans, or your grandfather, or even Florida for that matter, so I suspect you are assuming my brush is wider than I intended.

I'm certain that individual people have had different experiences. That being said, I didn't think that the animosity toward Castro in Cuba among exiled Cubans was really disputed, and with all due respect to what you were told that a man you never met thought about Castro's Cuba, I am comfortable in my charicterization of what I understand from talking correctly to a number of living Cuban exiles.

The point was simply that if you want to know "what the big deal is", you should probably talk with some Cuban exiles, as they can tell you better than anyone.

You: Stop talking about some people! No one here is interested in some people. I was talking about Farkers and this thread. Leave me out of your freeper bashing, it's boring.
Dansker: I don't understand!

That is ALL.

jst3p: Nowhere in the headline does it say farkers will be outraged.

This started with specific responses to specific posts that did. Read up.


No, I absolutely did not say "yeah they are!" in relation to this thread. And I didn't use freeperville as an example, because those guys are outraged that Obama continues to use air and even if he stopped using air, they'd be pissed that he was decomposing and wasting a worm's precious time.

Headline: People are outraged about Obama shaking hands with somebody
You: But they aren't in THIS thread!
Me: But they are in certain severely but not completely conservatarded corners of the Internet.

This is the quote that lead me to believe you were painting with a wide brush.

"There is both a deep, and abiding hatred of Castro's Cuba, and a deep and rooted love for America that can be hard to understand if you haven't spent some time with exiled Cubans."

If you meant it in reference to only your friends, I apologize, but I figured it would have been preceded with a "my friends" or something if you meant that, as you are usually very careful with your word choice.


BojanglesPaladin: I'm certain that individual people have had different experiences. That being said, I didn't think that the animosity toward Castro in Cuba among exiled Cubans was really disputed


It is disputed, there are a wide variety of Cubans who do not agree with the "Florida Cuban" view. This I know for certain, because my mother and grandmother used to attend monthly meetings of Cuban exiles who feel the same. I went to a few as well.

BojanglesPaladin: and with all due respect to what you were told that a man you never met thought about Castro's Cuba, I am comfortable in my charicterization of what I understand from talking correctly to a number of living Cuban exiles.


Why do your friends' stories count more than my family's? I know certain things about my grandfather for certain. For example, he liked communism to the day he died(I inherited his "library"). And "talking correctly" sounds like you're implying something rather negative about either me, my family, or their stories. You may not be, but it's not exactly a nice way to phrase it(see above about word choice).

BojanglesPaladin: The point was simply that if you want to know "what the big deal is", you should probably talk with some Cuban exiles, as they can tell you better than anyone.


Cuban exiles like my mother and grandmother? Or the rest of my family? Or the stories from those meetings I mentioned? I grew up hearing plenty of stories. Some were very anti-Castro, true, but there were lots that didn't. I'm sorry they don't jive with what you've been told, but, and you might want to sit down for this, you might be shocked to find out that not all people who went through something will have the same opinion about that experience.

Yup. The same old tired trolls receiving way too many replies.

scottymac: Every Fark "Politics" thread:

1. "Oh here we go..."

2. (Popcorn.gif)

3. "I'm tempted to go on this conservative site and see what they're saying"

4. "Any minute now...."

5. "They'll probably say..." (insert made-up comments peppered with "tea tards", conserva-derps", etc.)

6.  Snark in support of above.

7. Repeat 5 and 6 until thread implodes on itself and/or no one cares anymore.

What exactly is the point?


8. Some guy chimes in with a posting that acts like he's above it all.
