Unfair to the Devil

Ulla Jelpke (58), consecutively hairdresser, office hand, book dealer, prison warden and member of the German Bundestag for The Left party, an activity that left her finally with enough spare time to acquire degrees in sociology and commerce (that's she on the left together with the rest of her blog's sidebar), thinks that human rights are respected in Cuba. Asked, what about the political prisoners and lack of free speech there, she found that a "petty discussion". In 2006, that was. This just as an introduction.

Recently, she expressed concern regarding a "demonisation" of the former GDR and specifically the Stasi. That's not an isolated case. From Satanist circles it transpired that non-Satanists are systematically demonising the devil, a phenomenon that has sadly grown to be a global problem. Don't people have any shame anymore? What will be next? Demonising the Gestapo?

Big hat tip: Rainer Bonhorst.

I'd wager Ms Jelpke has never spent time with any Cubans who fled the worker's paradise. She should go to Little Havana in Miami or Ybor City in Tampa and tell the folks there that Cuba is a global model for protecting human rights.

She's 58? Just goes to show that wisdom doesn't always come with age.

Correct! And I'd wager as well that she never spent any time in the former Workers' and Peasants' Paradise, she's from West Germany.

From West Germany eh? The grass is always greener on the other side - until somebody makes you actually it eat.

There is a mania amongst the left that the wrong side won the cold war.
The mania continues today with people like this making excuses for Cuba and pretending that Hugo Chavez is a populist.

One can get great information from the folks at the Babalu Blog.

A classic was said to our friend the Pagan Temple. "Che did not use rubber bullets". No he used real ones and had people executed without trials including teens

Probably the worst man in the history of England - unless his owner and eventual murderer Henry VIII should be judged worse - was the loathsome Thomas Cromwell, a butcher's son who transfered his father's avocation to nuns and monks. He was the Beria and the Heydrich of his day, the comparison is not exaggerated, and in the end Henry killed him because he had grown too notorious even for the fat murderer. (Besides, there were no more monasteries to plunder; even the guilds and corporations of London, whose connection with religion is not clear, had been plundered and crushed in a final frenzy of theft.)

Last year, the prominent British novelist Hilary Mantel wrote a novel which made a hero of the monstrous Thomas and a criminal of the great Thomas More (the man of whom the Emperor Charles V said that he would rather lose the finest city in his kingdoms than such a counsellor).

The novel received the main British book prize, and its anti-historical and fraudulent talking points are now the common talk of book readers.

The world turned upside down, indeed. I think this is more than just a matter of being pro-Islam or pro-Communist or even Jew-bashers. I think a real attempt to reverse our moral instincts is taking place - of the kind Hitler theorized but was incapable of enforcing.

Very well put and I absolutely agree. Islam (or any other threat to the West, for that) would be no unsurmountable problem without exactly that reversal of our moral instincts.
