    Original message "Baby Doc returned to a hero's welcome" from NPR


    Sorry, guys. I'm mostly keeping my updates in my other thread but the spin in this article hurt my eyes, knocked me off my pins, or something. That it's from NPR makes it more heinous to me. This is also in my other thread but I decided this needed its own place as well. Ewwww.

    <snip>

    Amidst chanting for Jean-Claude Duvalier, Sanon says young people want to be able to go back to school.

    Robinson Marquis, who was standing nearby, said Baby Doc was Haiti's last great president.

    "Since he left the country, we have no country," says 35-year-old Marquis. "When he come back, we going to have an army and a country and the country going to be beautiful again, like way back since he left in 1986."

    <snip>

    But on Sunday, Baby Doc returned to a hero's welcome, he was given an entourage of Haitian National Police for security and he appeared briefly on the balcony of an upscale hotel as a free man waving to a mob of supporters and journalists below.

    The DUmmies are all upset about Baby Doc...of course it must be a US plot for oil or some other moronic reason.

    That their cherished NPR reports it is just sweeter...:D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    There's just tons of oil under Haiti, after all, it just has to be a plot.


    The man is lucky that the haitians haven't killed him yet. I say the longer he stays there, the more likely it is that he will be killed by someone.

    Sadly yes he is. But he also thinks Iraq was better under Saddam.




    Those "wildly cheering" folks only numbered about 200 and most of them were people that have lived the good life right up until he went into exile.

    I seriously doubt the vast majority of the population are looking forward to the return of the Tonton Macute.

    Liberal love of despotic dictators never ceases to amaze me.

    I think in this case, there is also a total ignorance of history going on. When Baby Doc left Haiti, everyone was happy to see him go, liberal and conservative. I don't remember anyone in the 80s in american politics justifying or supporting the Duvaliers.
