Noting that the United States had apprehended 1,000 people from Cuba in 2005, Thompson said, “I don’t imagine they’re coming here to bring greetings from Castro. We’re living in the era of the suitcase bomb.”
The merits of the position aside (I don’t think that any of the Cubans fleeing Cuba leave because they like Castro), how dumb do you have to be, on the American political scene, to accuse Cuban immigrants of pro-terrorist sympathies? I mean seriously, Fred, if you want villify immigrants and play to your xenophobic base, accusing Mexicans of having leprosy is better than accusing Cubans of having suitcase bombs.
Hope you don’t have any plans to visit Florida soon.
