There’s a reason I call them the “Useless Nations.” They’ve declared the decrepit Fidel Castro a “World Hero of Solidarity.” Via Michelle Malkin:
The award was presented to Castro by the President of the UN General Assembly, Miguel Dâ€™Escoto Brockmann. Brockmann also successfully lobbied the Obama Administration to demand that Honduras allow the return to power of its ex-president and would-be dictator, Manuel Zelaya.
People like Brockmann should have to live in one of Castro’s gulags since they love him so much.
Alberto at Babalu Blog notes the Myers–the Cuban spies arrested last week–are your typical spoiled, privileged traitorous American-hating leftists.
So that leaves me with a thought, or rather, a question. Given the type of people Obama is associated with, how many future Cuban (or other country) spies are coming to work for his administration now?
Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez has been attacked today by THE official Cuban journalist, Rosa Miriam Elizalde in Cubadebate site. That’s not the first time, but is a good example of the official point-of-view about independent blogging in Cuba.
“Internet use is only for foreigners for the time being,” said a worker at the Hotel Nacional’s business center. “According to a new order from ETECSA [Cuba’s telecom monopoly] only foreigners can surf the web at hotels.”
But hey, let’s just lift the embargo and everything will be alright!
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 Cubaâ€™s athletic teams compete internationally the participants are constantly shadowed by members of Cubaâ€™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.
