    they still feel hatred towards JFK and the Dems for the Bay of Pigs fiasco, but the repugs have never done anything for them, the only one who really tried was JFK!!!

    You can see this from the Diaz Balart brothers, they insult everybody by calling them communists, they say CNN is "Communist News Network", etc......you disagree and you are a "traitor" and a friend of Castro, and that is their rethoric.

    •  kind of ironic that.... (0+ / 0-)

      ....those Cubans who hate Fidel Castro (and I guess Raul Castro too) so much are just as authoritarian in their mindset as Fidel Castro ever was.

      Eisenhower was the whole reason behind the Bay of Pigs. That can't be the entire reason behind it.

      •  Nope, that is the reason in their own words (0+ / 0-)

        ...JFK's back stabbed Cuban Americans when he didn't deliver Cuba to them, the anti Castro Mythology is that the US Navy promised to provide military support to the invasion (yeah right) and didn't

        And believe it or not that is the argument among the hard core republican cuban-american.
