The Daughter of the Dictator of the Oppressive Cuban Regime endorses President Obama for President in 2012

Week in Review

The 2012 election is still about 5 months away.  But President Obama has received another endorsement.  In an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour the daughter of Cuba’s communist dictator said President Obama is her kind of leader (see Obama wins endorsement from Raul Castro’s daughter by the CNN Wire Staff posted 6/4/2012 on CNN).

The daughter of Cuba’s president supports the re-election bid of U.S. President Barack Obama, but believes he could do more were it not for the pressures he is facing, she said in an interview broadcast Monday on “CNNi’s Amanpour.”

“As a citizen of the world, I would like him to win,” said Mariela Castro Espin, daughter of Raul Castro, in the exclusive interview, which was conducted Friday in New York. “Given the choices, I prefer Obama…”

Amanpour pointed to a Human Rights Watch description of Cuba as “the only country in Latin America that represses virtually all forms of political dissent.”

But Castro said the rights group “does not represent the opinion of the Cuban people. And their informants are mercenaries. They’re people who have been paid by a foreign government for media shows that do not represent Cuban positions directly…”

Castro offered no sympathy for Yoani Sanchez, the dissident blogger inside Cuba who has won multiple awards for her work, which is critical of the Castro government.

“She gives service to foreign powers who are interested in eliminating the Cuban experience,” Castro said. “She’s an official voice of the global dominant powers.

Castro disputed Sanchez’s assertion that she was not allowed to work. “She is allowed to work in Cuba,” Castro said. “But she makes much more money with the prizes, which are being sent to her from abroad, than for any work that she might do with the very low wages that we have in Cuba…”

Asked about Sen. Robert Menendez’s description of her as “a vocal advocate of the regime, an opponent of democracy, who has defended the brutal repression of democracy activists,” Castro called the Democrat from New Jersey “a person who really doesn’t have his feet down on the ground.”

Just in case you’re not sure Raul Castro is Fidel Castro’s brother.  When Fidel suffered some health issues he handed the dictatorship over to his brother.  Because he could.  Much like Kim Jong-Il handed his dictatorship off to his son, Kim Jong-un.  Because he could.  When you have absolute power over life and death of your people you can play by any set of rules you choose.  And Fidel Castro has chosen to continue their oppressive communist police state.  For those who didn’t escape across the water to Florida, that is.  This is Cuba.  Where the Cuban masses suffer under the Castro dictatorship.  Something Mariela Castro Espin apparently supports.  Saying the Castro will is the people’s will.  Those Cubans trying to make it to Florida on watercraft than can barely float, though, beg to differ.

And this champion of oppressive communist police states endorses President Obama in the 2012 election.  As I’m sure the Castro brothers do.  As well as Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.  And if he was still alive, Mao Zedong.  And the man that exported this oppressive Stalinism himself.  Joseph Stalin.  So it would appear that President Obama impresses the anti-capitalism bloc.  For they must feel that he hates capitalism as much as they do.  And they would love to see how much more he can hate it with 4 more years.
