Castro Mourns Loss of Major Hollywood Operative

castro-rivers
"Hay, pero que lastima! Porque mira que ese tipo nos ayudo!"

Mr. Stephen Rivers, who once worked as Tom Hayden’s press secretary and Jane Fonda’s agent, also arranged Cuban trips for Oliver Stone, Michael Moore, Benicio del Toro, Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute, Stephen Soderbergh among many others who sought the invaluable collaboration of Castro’s propaganda ministry for their films. Essentially Rivers was Hollywood’s go-to guy when planning a visit to Fidel Castro’s fiefdom, a meeting with his communist functionaries, or even a coveted audience (‘NO?! REALLY!”) with the mass-murderer himself, as generously bequeathed to Spielberg. Despite this “embargo” we keep hearing and reading about in the MSM, Rivers managed to visit Castro’s island fiefdom over two dozen times over the course of a few years.

Stephen Rivers’ family is no doubt grieving over their recent loss and my “insensitivity” to them might offend some. I simply ask where was Stephen Rivers’s sensitivity to the tens of thousands jailed, tortured and murdered by the Stalinist regime, that by their own admission, he “sided with” and served?

You’d never know it from Hollywood or the MSM but Castro’s tens of thousands of murder victims have families too.

Entire insensitivity and intransigence here.

    Hey, business is business. Of course, there could also be ideological affinity and/or extortion involved. Regardless, what can one expect from Hollywood types, generally speaking?

    May he burn in hell...together with the pig Che.
