Cuban baseball slavery

Babalu Blog has a blogburst today about the World Baseball Classic and Cuba’s sadly enslaved baseball team. The post is pegged to the top of the page and it includes a song parody of “Take Me Out To The Ball Game,” a special graphic and this:

Cuba is one of the few countries in the world that prohibits its citizens from leaving without government permission, a violation of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Because Cuba’s athletic teams compete internationally the participants are constantly shadowed by members of Cuba’s state security apparatus. The primary objective of Cuban state security is to prevent defections which embarrass the Castro regime and deplete the country of athletic talent. In Democratic countries like the United States this presents a perverse situation where Cuban athletes are basically deprived of their rights to move freely.

As Babalu Blog notes, the MSM could care less about this. Pretty ironic about how the left and the Castro regime whines loudly about a US prison–Guantanamo–on Cuban soil while nobody seems to give a rat’s behind about a Cuban prison that travels the world.
