Havana, Jul 5 (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s president of the Casa de las Americas, Abel Prieto, warned on Sunday of US President Donald Trump’s intention to focus on a cultural war.
Trump would rather focus on another war, the cultural one. In his speech on Mount Rushmore, the Republican ruler portrayed the US as a country under the assault of a ‘new extreme left-fascism’, of ‘evil, devilish people’ whose goal is ‘the end of America,’ said Cuba’s former minister of Culture on Twitter.
The US President took advantage yesterday of the US national holiday on July 4 to deliver a speech in which he exacerbated political divisions to the top and promised a forceful response against the ‘new extreme left-fascism’ that, according to him, it spans ‘schools, newsrooms, and even corporate boardrooms.’
In Trump’s opinion, an alleged ‘left-wing cultural revolution aims to overthrow the American revolution’ and its protagonists are ‘evil, devilish people’ who are seeking not a better America, but ‘the end of America.’
Such statements occurred on Mount Rushmore in front of an estimated audience of 7,500 people, without requesting any social distancing, or the use of facemasks, despite the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic in the US, a situation that the president completely dismissed.
The Casa de las Americas recently commemorated the 61st anniversary of its foundation and regarding the celebration, Prieto spoke with Prensa Latina about the essential contribution of that institution in keeping the great Latin American Homeland alive from the spiritual and cultural point of view, above the different political circumstances.
