Six members of the Congressional Black Caucus continued a long tradition of "progressive" support for oppressive, totalitarian left wing dictatorships by traveling to Cuba and singing the praises of the murderous ruling regime presently enslaving that country. Mona Charen titled her book detailing that sad tradition, "Useful Idiots", using the phrase allegedly coined by Lenin to describe - well - progressive support for oppressive, totalitarian left wing dictatorships. She does a good job of castigating the latest cadre of those shameful idiots in a recent column.
Michelle Malkin also weighs in with the following.
"Not since The New York Times reporter Walter Duranty traipsed around Stalin's Russia, filing cheery travelogues whitewashing Communist-engineered famine, has America witnessed such disgraceful propaganda tourism."
She suggests a name change for the Congressional Black Caucus - CBC - Congressional Bootlickers for Castro.
Here are the names of the anti-American radicals who took part in this disgrace - House Democrats Emanuel Cleaver, Barbara Lee, Laura Richardson, Bobby Rush, Marcia Fudge, Mel Watt and Mike Honda. If anyone wants to know why I'm no longer a Democrat - the best answer is I don't wish to be associated with vermin such as these. Not all Democrats are apologists for left wing tyrannies, but except for a few stray communists, all apologists for left wing tyrannies are Democrats.
I've just heard John Derbyshire's latest Radio Derb (4/10). Conservatives (and open minded liberals) needing a good laugh - please listen.
