Every Cuban has been a victim of communist torture in various forms. There are those who have suffered from all kinds of torture, from the most ridiculous and absurd to the most sublime and sophisticated. Among the crimes of Cuban communism are the tortures of Cubans daily, constantly, perfidiously and brutally. All this happens in view of the “democratic” world and with the complicity of those who claim to be “good” people. With special mention to Canada, known by Cubans as “The Executioner’s Assistant”, but that is another topic for another day.
The majority of the Cuban people, the humble people of Cuba, do not know this and do not understand it because ever since we opened our eyes to the world we have been victims of the arrogance, incapacity, despotism and genocide of the worst dictatorship that has hit a country throughout the history of mankind.
Cubans are tortured from the moment we are born and it is something so normal in our lives that we even walk around the free world and carry with us the dungeons, the blows, the whipping, the can’t-do’s and the goth of Chinese water hitting our foreheads . Terrible but true.
But this is a very serious issue.
The greatest, most brazen, fascist, bloody and brutal torture that we Cubans suffer is the prostration in power of the same surname dominating, by force, the destinies of an entire people, thus giving a vile accolade to the sense of democracy of the Cuban nation.
When we hear the word torture we immediately imagine a dungeon, a cell, an office in Villa Marista or simply a space, a small space full of olive green henchmen beating, yelling, threatening, blackmailing and accusing anyone they consider an enemy of the “revolution” or, simply, to any Cuban who considers himself a free human being. Witness to this are the patriots Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara, Maikel Castillo Pérez “El Osorbo”, José Daniel Ferrer, Silverio Portal, Ariel Ruiz Urquiola and many others.
The existence of this type of behavioral aberration is more than proven in Castro’s Cuba. According to scholars of the language, TORTURE is all “Physical or psychological punishment inflicted on a person in order to mortify him or her to confess something.”
Well, after January 1, 1959, and even long before that, the elite of Castroism specialized in physically torturing hundreds of thousands of Cubans for the most diverse reasons. Horrible tortures inflicted against human beings of which there is written and graphic evidence and that are in the memory of many men, women and families no matter how much the communists try to lie about it.
The mass executions in La Cabaña, the families pleading, the summary trials, the repudiation rallies, the revolutionary hordes armed with violence to kill, the physical punishment of opponents, the impunity of the regime, the unjust prisons, the extrajudicial murders, the electroshocks indiscriminate attacks, harassment, public ridicule, verbal aggression, anonymous accusations, violent arrests, murders in peaceful demonstrations, the photo of the assassin Che presiding over interrogations, among many more on an endless list, are examples, more than enough , to sit these criminals, starting with everyone who bears the surname Castro, in a court of law for crimes against humanity.
But also another definition of TORTURE is: “Very intense and continuous pain or suffering, moral or physical, that a person feels.”
And it is this, it is the most exact definition to understand that we Cubans are tortured daily by that cruel, criminal and genocidal dictatorship implanted in our country in 1959.
To explain why, it is only necessary to mention that living in Cuba, with a supply book, in conditions of urban overcrowding, queuing to buy anything, moving from one place to another in animal transport or walking with broken shoes, having to participate in the activities of “everything with the revolution against the nothing revolution” to appear politically correct, suffer electricity cuts, carry water in buckets and endure all the hardships of socialism is, my friends, true torture.
The tortures that we have to endure in Cuba are many, the list is endless, painful and insufferably long. Cubans, the millions of Cubans born and lived there when reading these lines are crying just remembering these hardships. By dint of morally torturing the population, the dictatorship turned misery into a revolutionary pastime to which we Cubans inexplicably adapt without saying a word and assume a miserable ideology, such as socialism, to (And this is the most ridiculous thing about this history) march towards an ideal when the only truth is that we were slowly killing the Homeland that is already dead today.
