Castro’s granddaughter parties in New York City like it’s 1959
Just because regular Cubans are forced to live in abject poverty and deprived of the most basic necessities and human rights by a ruthlessly repressive dictatorship does not necessarily mean the ruling elite on the island must suffer along with them. And just because regular Cubans must resort to any means necessary -- including prostitution -- in order to feed, clothe, and shelter their families, it does not mean that the children of the dictatorship have to suffer the same misery. No, not at all. While regular Cubans are treated like animals by the Castro dictatorship, sold like slaves to the highest bidder, Vilma Rodriguez Castro, the granddaughter of Cuba's dictator Raul Castro, blissfully parties in New York City like it is 1959.
By granting Vilmita and other elite members of Cuba's ruling class visas to enter the U.S., the purpose of the Obama administration's Cuba policy becomes apparent; to ensure the Cuban dictatorship's privileged elite do not have to suffer like regular Cubans.
