Cubanophobia in the Palm Beaches

Fear Not, White People

My new Year’s resolution is not to be too sarcastic.

The Palm Beach Post has a PSA article today to reassure Anglos and other non-Cubans in South Florida that their elected officials are ready to defend them against “those crazy Cubans” once Castro dies and the unruly hoard of drunken foreigners takes to the streets in search of white women.

Local police are hoping their involvement after Castro dies isn't as confrontational. In places with large Cuban populations, such as Miami-Dade and the city of Key West, authorities expect large-scale celebrating in the street - with many celebrants drinking something stronger than Maria Vazquez's cider.

"Those police departments may just have to decide what streets to close to traffic" to accommodate the celebrants, says Amos Rojas Jr., FDLE special agent in charge. "Let's hope that's all that happens."

The article also tries to calm the fears of South Florida property owners who have seen the value of their homes depreciate by as much as 10% in the last few months, by assuring them that there will not be another “Mariel” or MME, Mass Migration Event, after Castro’s death, to negatively affect property values even further.

Santayana quoting James Brooks, spokesman for the Naval Air Station in Key West has this to say:

"Everybody knows what happened at the time of Mariel”

"We want to learn from history and not repeat it,"

MME phobias and Cubanophobias were further appeased with the revelation that there’s even a code name for the readiness plan:

"Operation Vigilant Sentry" is Homeland Security's game plan to react to any large movement of migrants towards U.S. shores from the south. The plan is about 1,000 pages long and was the text for the recent exercise.

Palm Beach County officials participated in that exercise, including law enforcement, fire rescue and health department officials.

"We have standing commitments to coordinate and cooperate with other departments in the Homeland Security Task Force," says Paul Miller, spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

He said one task for which the sheriff's office might be mobilized is search and rescue

Would that be the search and rescue of white people trapped behind third world country enemy lines?
