It’s good to be the King(‘s granddaughter)
Let's face it; being the child of royalty certainly has its perks. For Vilma Rodriguez Castro, the granddaughter of Cuban dictator Raul Castro, her royal lineage affords her luxuries that millions of Cubans suffering under the yoke of her family's tyranny can only dream of. Thanks to the generosity of the Obama State Department, Vilmita was granted a visa to enter the United States to attend an art show where her Cuban boyfriend is exhibiting his "art." Naturally, since she is a princess, Vilmita has an image to uphold. So, when she was spotted at the reception for the art exhibition on opening night, princess Vilma was dressed, well, like a princess, wearing Channel shoes, sporting a Louis Vuitton purse, and a Rolex watch dangling on her royal wrist.
Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing sinister about wearing expensive shoes, owning an expensive purse, or wearing a pricey watch when you can afford it. What makes it sinister is when the only reason you can afford to enjoy these expensive luxuries is because your family stole billions of dollars, murdered tens of thousands of people, and has enslaved 11-million citizens in order to afford these accoutrements. It would take a typical Cuban slave several years salary in order to afford the Channel shoes alone, but that does not seem to bother princess Vilmita.
Nor does it seem to bother the Obama State Department, which continues to hand out visas to the Castro dictatorship's criminal class like they were handing out candy. It almost seems like the State Department is smitten by the perceived royalty of the Castro dictatorship and they feel honored that such high-ranking members of the Cuban dictatorship's royal family would want to visit our humble country. The leftist contingent in this country seems smitten as well, but they have always felt a strong connection to murderous dictators as long as those dictators espouse Marxist dogma and hate the U.S.
For princess Vilma, however, all of this is inconsequential to her life of privilege and luxury. All she knows and all she cares about is that it's good to be the King's granddaughter.
