EL SEXTO : A “NOBODY” LEGITIMIZED BY INFLUENTIAL FIGURES OF THE CUBAN EXILE

BEFORE YOU READ THIS:

Please understand that Nizin R. Lopez is not a Socialist, a Communist, an anti-Americam, an Arab, or a Muslim. Nizin R. Lopez is a Cuban-American of Sephardic-Jewish descent, a “TRUTH-SEEKER”; a politically incorrect Artist that questions his environment. Please understand also that I am not in any way trying to attack the Cuban exile, “I, Nizin R. Lopez, I am a member of the Cuban exile. I am a “Balsero” and proud.

A “NOBODY” LEGITIMIZED BY INFLUENTIAL FOLKS OF THE CUBAN EXILE

On late December 2015 a Cuban dissident known as “El Sexto” (The Sixth) was arrested and imprisoned by agents of the rigid-recalcitrant Castro regime. The ‘anti-establishment’ character tried to release two pigs with the names of Raul and Fidel in a plaza of Havana (his Magnum Opus). Apparently, El Sexto attempted to do an artistic performance inspired by the novella “Animal Farm” of the anti-Stalin writer George Orwell.

(here we have the professional ‘agitator’ known as “El Sexto”)

puerco-raul

This so-called “performance” of El Sexto catapulted him into stardom, he became an international celebrity overnight. The influential figures of the Cuban exile in Miami?…They fell in love with him and adopted him as their son. But, who is this human rights activist who is portrayed as a gifted graffiti artist of encyclopedic understanding?

El Sexto’s real name is Danilo Maldonado Machado, he was born in Camaguey in the 80’s. El Sexto has been incarcerated several times by the Cuban authorities, it is said that he is frequently detained by the police pretty much under any pretext. The affluential-dominant wizards of the Cuban exile in Miami have presented him as a heroic champion of free speech and as a talented artist. Some have gone as far as calling him a “GENIUS” as if El Sexto was the mere incarnation of Michelangelo or something. It is true that El Sexto has opposed the Castro regime fiercely but, is he the misunderstood Socrates we’ve been told he is? What is his education for example? Is El Sexto a graduate from ‘E.N.A.’, meaning from Escuela Nacional de Arte? His English-Bio on the internet says that he graduated in 2002 from “Tecnico Medio Havana in Arts and Crafts”. Does he know how to paint a portrait like Iman Maleki? Does he know how to draw like DaVinci? Is he a visionary like M.C. Escher? Does he possess the creativity of Dan Seagrave? Believe it or not these are questions that demand a valid answer.

I know these are harsh words but, the fact of the matter is that Danilo Maldonado Machado is a legitimized “NOBODY”, an un-sophisticated individual in desperate need of attention; a “provocateur”. It is clear that as far as “ARTWORK” goes he doesn’t have much to offer,…his “GENIUS” is nothing but a feverish pantomime fabricated by influential/well-connected folks of the Cuban exile (sad but true). El Sexto deserves credit as an anti-Castro dissenter but he does not deserve to be portrayed as a creative genius. El Sexto is nothing but an agitator with some artistic inclinations; that is what he is. He is not a “REAL” artist so to speak and he is ‘CERTAINLY NOT A GENIUS’.

Yet, he’s been featured in mainstream media and in the press (in Miami/Fla). As much as I hate to say this, Univision 23 and Telemundo 51 seem to be hypnotized by his charismatic splendor, they seem to believe that he is some type of prolific lecturer.

otro-dibujito

(Here’s a drawing by ‘El Sexto’…Telemundo 51 has labelled El Sexto as an “Artista Plastico”, meaning a ‘Plastic Artist. They are portraying him as a highly talented individual, a ‘mega-figure’ even though his ‘so called’ artwork is nothing out of this world. I bet Maria Celeste can draw better than the erudite known as ‘El Sexto’)

In Mega TV the brilliant Dominican journalist Oscar Haza defines El Sexto as a ‘Visual Artist”. Oh really? The Miami Herald seems to think that El Sexto is a colossus, a primary exponent of creativity in the Island. As if all this is not enough, ‘El Sexto’ was supposed to attend the premiere of an HBO documentary called “Cuba, fatherland or Death” (directed by Olatz Lopez Garmendia). As we have seen, El Sexto, a “NOBODY”, has been favored by ‘the Powers that be’ simply because he attacks the Communist regime of the Castro’s. So, if one gets a marker and writes “OBAMA” on a pig he deserves to be recognized as the new Salvador Dali? If I, Nizin R. Lopez, fly to Iraq and say that Saddam Hussein was an oppressive- sadistic tyrant,…I deserve to be famous? There are hundreds of talented Cuban artists in Miami Fla that deserve recognition but the mainstream media ignores them since they don’t fit the politically correct agenda of the times (we’re talking about artists that had no choice but to flee from Communist Cuba).

EL SEXTO AND MIAMI DADE COLLEGE

Based on the information provided by the internet, sometime in 2014 El Sexto participated in some type of student exchange program sponsored by the Miami-based ‘Foundation of Human Rights in Cuba’ (FHRC); he studied in Miami Dade College. Basically, some influential figure of the Cuban exile “HOOKED HIM UP”, somebody uplifted him since his ‘artistic career’ is really “NOT SOLID’. A personage like Wilfredo Lam for example would not have needed this ‘BOOST” since he is a real talent with solid artistic roots, his artwork is beyond majestic (he is more than famous).
It is interesting to see that Miami Dade College sponsors and supports figures like “El Sexto” in the holy name of Democracy. Yet, Miami Dade College is not necessarily a ‘FREE SPEECH’ entity. I, Nizin R. Lopez, I tried to pursue a Nursing degree in Miami Dade College (since it is almost impossible to make a living as an artist). In early 2009 I was kicked out of MDC because I made a politically incorrect presentation in front of a multitude, I openly stated that September 11th was an ‘INSIDE JOB’ and that the U.S. Government was responsible for the deaths of 3000 innocent civilians. I also stated that for some reason, no significant amount of ‘Yids’ died in the tragedy.

MDC

(Miami Dade College, Inter-American campus. S.W. Miami, Fla)

I made this presentation in the Speech-class of a Jewish professor from Brooklyn named Sherry Sinkoff. It is clear to me that Sinkoff got together with the Academic Dean in order to execrate the hell out of me. That is exactly what happened, I was kicked out of MDC (Hialeah campus) under false accusations. The Academic Dean Advisor (a viper named ‘Sonja’) told the police that I was a psychopath and a threat to the people in the campus. Basically, MDC told the Hialeah Police that I was ‘armed and dangerous’ even though I have never been to a gun shop in my God damn life…incredible! But that is what took place and it took place in “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. The influential folks of MDC/Hialeah campus are gods of character assassination, they did everything in their power in order to grind me into dust.

MDC

(what you see here is a monument located in S.W Miami/Fla. It is next to the parking lot of Miami Dade College/Inter-American campus. This monument honors “FREEDOM OF SPEECH & HUMAN RIGHTS”)

It was no surprise that in early 2011 Law Enforcement started ‘Gang-Stalking’ me. I was placed in a secret surveillance program of the U.S Government designed to destroy a Targeted Individual emotionally and psychologically (unjust systematic harassment sponsored by the State). I was isolated from my support system, they distorted my public image…they started spreading false rumors pretty much telling people that I was a serial killer and a sex-offender. Unbelievable!!

Caligula

(the ones who despise me weaponized my own Artwork against me. They used my “DARK DEATH-METAL ARTWORK” against me and began spreading false rumors saying that I was a potential serial killer, a potential sex-offender, and a potential terrorist. Incredible! Album cover for the Floridian Death-Metal band “CALIGULA”, album ‘Bukkake Baptism’, 2006. Acrylic on canvas)

The ultimate goal of the Gang-Stalking program is to throw the Targeted Individual in jail (under false accusations of course) or to force him to commit suicide. How come the mainstream media doesn’t expose this despicable crime? The sad part is that most people in America ignore that such program exists. I, Nizin R. Lopez, a nice guy who always tried to do the right thing,…I ended up destroyed by corrupt-immoral people that work for the U.S. Government. It is what it is, no hard feelings.

So, MDC confabulates with characters like ‘El Sexto’ in order to project an image, an ideal,…they want people to think that Miami Dade College believes in transparency, freedom of speech, tolerance, democracy, integrity, etc. What about the Godless injustice that was done to me, a U.S citizen who came to the U.S. in a God-damn boat? Yes, sometimes MDC operates as an anti-freedom of speech terrorist organization, they believe they are doing it for the greater good. But so what, nobody knows about the secret ‘Gang-Stalking’ program. Nobody cares.

KILLER0002

(here’s the TI Pedro Vargas, an ex-employee of MDC that was shot killed by the Miami Dade Police on July, 2013. There was some type of friction between Mr Vargas and Miami Dade College, someone in MDC told the Police to Gang-Stalk the hell out of him pretty much forcing him to commit a crime. His neighbors did exactly as they were told: they harassed Mr Vargas systematically,…eventually Vargas lost his mind and shot at least five people. The Police took him out)
