In Cuba’s Press the X in Nixon Replaced with Swastika

September 4, 1970

In Castro’s Cuba, President Nixon is a Nazi; at least that is how the controlled Cuban press seeks to identify him to the masses, reports CBS Radio Network news correspondent Mike Wallace who just returned from an assignment in Cuba. In all Cuban newspapers, the X in the name Nixon is replaced by a swastika, Mr. Wallace said. The inference the Cuban government hopes will be drawn from this apparently is similar to that sought by the Black Panther’s newspaper when it spells America, “AmeriKKKa.”
