Barack Obama is visiting his socialist compadres in Cuba this week, and in a move which surprised no one, his new best friend Raul Castro placed boots to the necks of his own people.
Just before Obama’s arrival, more than 50 demonstrators were arrested in the streets of Havana. They are “Las Damas de Blanco” — the Ladies in White. They are the wives and relatives of jailed anti-Castro activists who march to Mass each Sunday, as they have for nearly four years.
Video showing police pulling and dragging the women as they chanted for freedom only fueled the anger those against the president’s visit already feel.
It’s Obama’s final year and the mask is off. Everyone already knew he was a socialist; now he’s just spiking the ball into the faces of the Cuban people.
