Castro & Communists Attack Bush, American Liberals Rejoice!
Ex-soccer star Diego Maradona spoke yesterday to a crowd of Marxists assembled outside the CAFTA-DR Summit in Mar da Plata, Argentina calling President George Bush “human rubbish” just as he had promised Fidel Castro earlier in the week.

Argentine soccer hero Diego Maradona promised Cuban President Fidel Castro on Thursday he would be at the front of an anti-Bush march in Argentina next week.
U.S. President George W. Bush will attend a summit of leaders from all countries from the Americas — except Cuba — in Mar del Plata, Argentina, Nov. 4-5.
“I think Bush is a murderer. … I’m going to head the march against him stepping foot on Argentine soil,” Maradona said, appearing on Cuban television with Castro.

“I promised the ‘Comandante’ that I would do it and I will,” the 44-year-old football legend said, referring to Castro.
“For me he is a god,” Maradona said of the 79-year-old left-wing Cuban leader, whom he considers a friend and a father figure who helped him kick drugs.
Actually, Maradona did not lead the march or participate in the march, but he did lead fellow Marxists, including Hugo Chavez, at the stadium in the Bush Bashing.
Argentine football legend Diego Maradona was the star again leading the attack against US President George W. Bush at an international summit here, calling Bush “human rubbish.”
Maradona was mobbed by fans as he arrived in Mar del Plata on a special train bringing activists to join protests against the Summit of the Americas, which saw widespread protests against the US presence.
On the train were rock stars, actors, Bolivian presidential contender Evo Morales and Argentine politicians, journalists and intellectuals.
Those Marxists and anarchists who joined Chavez and Maradona at the stadium screamed wildly for President Bush to “Go Home” and later went downtown and trashed the city center.
And, America’s own Liberals couldn’t be more pleased about the whole situation! It gave them an opportunity to say things like “Embattled Bush has Rocky America’s Summit”. Leftists in America couldn’t control themselves and sided with the Marxists in some good Bush-Bash fun!
To American Democrats, it doesn’t matter that the protesters were Marxists. So, why then doesn’t their media report this? The New York Times continued its long history of communist sympathizing with a report that does not mention once that the rioters were “communists” but does describe them as “peaceful protesters”!
Why is it so hard for the MSM to report that the rioters were anarchists and Communists? Would that make their own Bush Bashing reports less credulous? At least, one station, FOX News did report on their news channel that the rioters were anarchists and communists. But, that’s only because FOX News is biased!!!
After all, look at Cindy Sheehan’s “Castro Sympathizing” Shindig in Washington DC or the Million More “Communist” Movement with Louis Farrakhan praising Mao Tse Tung.
As long as they’re Bush Bashers they are the partner and friend of the American Liberal. It doesn’t matter if they are Marxist, anarchist, etc. They still fit comfortably under the all-inclusive liberal-Thinking umbrella!
Cuban blogger Babalu has more on the protests this weekend.
Generation Why has more on the “hammer & sickle” spottings at the protest, yesterday.
The Anchoress reminds us of how Bill Clinton was treated on similar trips.
