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.
http://www.npr.org/2011/01/17/133001394/former-exile-ba...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."
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
