Fake-documentary filmmaker Michael Moore and Moveon.org premiere his movie, Sicko, about the U.S. health care system tonight in Washington. We’ll mention him once and then fall quiet on the theory that any publicity serves his propaganda purposes.
The sick-flick includes scenes of Moore taking first responders from the New York 9/11/2001 terrorist mass murders to Cuba to buttress his claim that Cuban health care is better than U.S. care. Even if it were that true, he’s apologizing for an evil dictatorship that deprives the Cuban people of basic freedoms, where political prisoners are beaten as a routine matter.
But of course, Moore’s claim isn’t true. Cuba’s health care system is in a state of collapse.
After many years of increasing disrepair, the Cuban health system is now in crisis,” says Jorge Salazar-Carrillo, a professor of economics at Florida International University and expert on Latin American economies.
In reality, Cuba has three types of health systems, argues Jaime Suchlicki, the director of the Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies at the University of Miami and a leading expert on Cuba. One for the Cuban military, members of the Communist Party and leaders of the government. A second one is for foreigners who pay in dollars or foreign currency and a third one for the general Cuban population.
“The first two are excellent, with modern equipment and availability of medications,” he says. “The third, which is for the majority of the Cubans, is a veritable disaster with poor equipment and few medications and in many instances without the availability of Cuban specialists.”
You can see pictures of roach-infested, filthy and broken-down wards at the Publius Pundidt blog here. Horrifying, but this is the system Moore believes the United States should emulate.
And now Moore is expressing doubts that terrorists attacked the World Trade Center in 2001, falling into the group of morally corrupt conspiratorialists. It’s hard to express an adequate amount of revulsion at Moore’s propaganda, which is always directed at America. But Cuba’s communist masters love him.
Moore’s true crime against America is a crime against the little guy in a “documentary” that builds false hopes and steers people needing medical attention in the wrong direction.
So, a communist-embracing, conspiracy-minded shill who wants to destroy the U.S. health care system. What a distraction. What a disgrace.
