Happy Cuban Anniversary: Jay-Z and Beyonce support murderous regime


hovanaIt turns out that John Edwards was right after all. There are two Americas. In one of them, you work hard, pay your taxes, grind out an existence for your family, and try to navigate the maze of ever-expanding rules and regulations that the Obamite regime lay before you. In the other America, you are a bajillionaire Friend Of Barack, and are unencumbered by such things as rules, laws, or even basic human decency and sensitivity to the plight of the oppressed.

U.S. Rep. Mario Díaz-Balart, among other Republican legislators, is right to inquire about the legality of this trip as well as how the permission structures were navigated. Captain Ed notes that the cultural-exchange permission isn’t that easy to obtain, so it begs the question: who signed off on it?

On the one hand, I almost get it. Take a look at the feature pic again, and it’s “Bonnie and Clyde” all over again. Hov strolling down Havana streets, rockin’ a Panama and enjoying local tobacco. Very Godfather II-ish…that is, if Kanyé betrayed him to Hyman Roth. Then there’s Queen Bey, who wants to evoke Celia Cruz’ 1974-in-Zaire look- updo and all…albeit with the authenticity of a Canal Street Rolex. I’m fairly certain, though, that the Queen of Salsa would’ve stomped Sasha Fierce into wine were she here to witness this disgraceful display.

I guess elections have consequences. If you pull 48% of the Cuban vote en route to a second term, why not allow some your most famous cronies the privilege of some R&R along the Malecón? It’s not like there’s going to be any consequence, electoral or otherwise. Tell me how your sycophancy tastes, Cristina Saralegui and Pitbull. 

Oh, well. It’s not like Jay and Bey were ever in any danger of playing the Rubio inaugural. Speaking of Senator Rubio, here’s what he had to say about recreational tourism to Cuba.

    Is this really that big a deal? Are you aware that in 2012 approximately 400,000 Cubans traveled from Florida directly to Cuba? Why would these people travel to a country that opresses them?

    I have a friend in Miami who married a balsero. They managed to get his daughters off the island and they now are young adults. They go to Cuba 6 times a year.

    In the USA, we’re all supposed to be treated equally.

    The boycott will work one of these days. I’m sure of it; just give it some time. I mean, what’s a half-century?

    I recently found myself musing that when one considers the deprivations the Cuban people are subjected to, whether American politicians who support the boycott have thought about what its going to be like when they are at The Hague standing trial for crimes against humanity.

    Meanwhile, isn’t the best way to preserve any possibility that those Cuban-Americans who Castro & Co. stole from actually ever get reparations is if the economy in Cuba improves? But, hey, why bother with intelligent policy when there are hard-nosed counterproductive policies available instead? Hard-nosed counterproductive policies is, after all, a substantial component of the mainstream GOP brand.

    Don’t boycott Cuba…boycott Comcast.

    Comcast has gone to the “dark side” 100%. I have cancelled them for my t.v., phone, and internet($220 per month). I refuse to support their hatered for onservatives and conservatisim. They own 51% of the N ational B
    arack C hannel(NBC, MSNBC, CNBC) and have either completed or in the process of completing the purchase of the other 49%. They espouse the marxist/progressive party line at any and all opportunity these days. I urge all Conservatives to find alternatives to comcast so as to stop funding their freedom killing agenda. It is way past time conservatives use their hard earned dollars to “punish our enemies.”
