Stalinist Apparatchik (Mariela Castro) Hails U.S. Liberty Bell (not a peep of satiric comment from “edgy” pundits)

bell

From the ever-dependable AP:

(Mariela)Castro visited the Liberty Bell — an icon of democracy — even as critics say her family has run a repressive Communist dictatorship for decades. Her father, Raul Castro, is Cuba’s president and the brother of retired strongman.

Mariela Castro spoke briefly to reporters during her sightseeing tour. Asked about the health of her uncle and father, Castro replied: “They’re wonderful, and I learn a lot from their example.

Fun GAME!...find "President" (rather than dictator) in front of Augusto Pinochet's name anywhere within the AP. Also find the qualifier, "critics say" preceding "Pinochet ran a repressive regime."
