Castro Thuggery

Carlos Eire writes on Babalu blog about the savage pipe-beating of Cuban democracy activist Rolando Diaz Silva by regime goons yesterday:

Police also attacked and arrested those who complained about this incident, and about the intentionally delayed medical response to the victim’s serious injuries.

It took four hours for an ambulance to show up.

This type of incident is what the current occupant of the White House must have meant when he spoke of “empowering the Cuban people.”

Yeah. He meant it. Seriously. You just have to realize that when he spoke of the “Cuban people” he was referring only to the Castro dynasty and its agents.

Meanwhile, Capitol Hill Cubans reports that Castro’s henchmen arrested 65 democracy activists:

All of those arrested were members of the opposition groups, Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU) and Citizens for Democracy (CxD).

Their crime? Trying to attend Mass at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Charity.

They were intercepted by nearly 200 Castro regime agents, who began to beat and arrest them.

Obama Senate loyalists Claire McCaskill and Amy Klobuchar arrived in Cuba Saturday to talk trade with regime officials. Anyone holding their breath wondering if they will demand to see Silva or condemn the mass (literally) arrests?
