Elian Gonzalez, the Cuban boy who was involved in an international custody battle 16 years ago in Miami, is mourning the death of Fidel Castro, a man he compared to a "father."
Elian was a photogenic five-year-old in 1999 when he was found floating on an inner tube off the Florida coast.
Sixteen years later, he is recalling Fidel Castro as a man he likened to a father.
In an interview on Cuban State TV Saturday, he said he wanted Fidel to be proud of him.
Speaking in Spanish, he said, "He is a father who like my father, I wanted to show him everything I achieved."
Now almost 23 years old, Elian remembered when Fidel attended his elementary school graduation.
Gonzalez' mother and other Cubans accompanying the boy died trying to get to the United States from the island 90 miles to the south.
His case quickly became another battle in the long-running feud between Havana and Miami - one that ended with the boy's return to his father and grandparents in Cuba.
I thought this brat drowned
Is aunt was kinda hot
The one that groped him?
Well, the commie needs to suck it up buttercup.
Not much different then our snowflakes....
So much for finishing my second novel. He was supposed to lead a revolution. Had some beautiful passages, too. Back to the drawing board.
Ola, Elian. Is that Cane Sugar you mix with your big pitcher of Kool-Aid? It must really be delicious, as you have been drinking it for over the last 16 years.
Maybe, but like the Nazi youth, he may simply be a brainwashed buffoon.
The Clintons sent him back to Cuba.
What am I saying??? The majority of our college grads in AMERICA are indoctrinated drones for the state as well!
Re-imagine Elian as saying this publicly, and behind the scenes he’s plotting to assassinate the current Castro in charge.
“I experienced freedom in America for five minutes before being ripped from liberty’s bosom and returned to the Communist hellhole of my birth...”
He didn’t have to go that far.
Exactly. They showed a photo of Elian in recent years. Totally dead eyes. The Clintoons killed this boy’s soul with this act of evil.
I’m not sure that’s necessarily so. He led a Potemkin Village life.
They call this the “Stockholm Syndrome”.
“His mother died getting him to the US. The Clintons sent him back to Cuba.”
OMG! Don’t ever, EVER tell that to a LibTard, LOL! Blood-splatter everywhere from their head exploding.
Ask me how I know. *SMIRK*
It would, except if he’s setting himself up to shill for Raul and cash in on his relation to Fidel, that destroys the whole concept, coerced or not.
