Cuba’s MINREX loses the board

Cuba's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINREX) perdio la tabla*. In a statement that is nothing short of a breathless and hysterical tirade, MINREX goes after the U.S. Cuba-Democracy PAC, Capitol Hill Cubans, and Mauricio Claver-Carone. Apparently, the Castro regime has become so flustered that they broke one of their cardinal rules, which is to never, ever mention the names or acknowledge the existence of those who oppose them.

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

We Thank Cuba's MinRex for the Plug

In a statement today, the Castro regime's Foreign Ministry (known as MinRex) gave us a fascinating plug.

Their dictatorial diatribe is too poetic for translation:

"El activismo de este PAC, considerado el más grande orientado hacia un solo país en los Estados Unidos, ha sido clave en la promoción de iniciativas contra Cuba en el Congreso y en la creación de un ambiente negativo para el debate en ese órgano de las ideas de cambio de la vieja, obsesiva y fracasada política de los EE.UU. contra la nación antillana.

El abogado de origen cubano Mauricio Claver-Carone, quien es su director ejecutivo, principal cabildero en Washington e insuperable encarnación de la anti-patria que medra de las migajas imperiales a tono con la farsa del 'exilio,' dirige a su vez la organización 'Defensores de la Democracia en Cuba.' Esta se dedica a hacer labores de cabildeo  en el Congreso para asegurar el mantenimiento del bloqueo genocida impuesto al pueblo cubano, con objetivos complementarios a los dineros que deja caer el PAC. Por si fuera poco, el propio Claver-Carone es editor del blog Capitol Hill Cubans, fuente de información tergiversada sobre Cuba que cotidianamente destila hiel a diestras y siniestras contra todo aquel y todo aquello que huela a beneficio para los cubanos de a pie, a ambos lados del Estrecho de la Florida."

*Perdio la tabla is a Cuban saying that literally translated is "loses the board," but that actually means losing one's composure and acting hysterically.
