Mariela Castro silent in the face of LGBT attacks by her father’s government in Venezuela
Mariela Castro, the daughter of Cuban dictator Raul Castro, continues to collect awards all over the world for her "gay rights" activism. In the meantime, the Cuban-controlled dictatorship in Venezuela has embarked on a campaign of homophobia and attacks against the LGBT community in that country.
What does Ms. Mariela Castro have to say about this? Absolutely nothing.

Ruling party legislator unleashes gay slurs in attacking leaders of Venezuela’s opposition
Venomous political attacks have become the norm in Venezuela, and now a governing party legislator has unleashed a tirade in the country’s legislature using gay slurs in trying to discredit the opposition.
The lawmaker displayed photos in the National Assembly on Tuesday showing a top aide to opposition leader Henrique Capriles dressed, along with other men, in women’s clothing, apparently at a party. He suggested, without elaboration, that the photos proved the aide’s involvement with drug traffickers and male and female prostitution.
Legislator Pedro Carreno, a member of the movement built by the late President Hugo Chavez, didn’t say where he got the photos, although the aide’s apartment was searched last week by military agents.
Carreno, a former military officer, is angry with Capriles for accusing him of being forced out of the armed forces for corruption and has challenged him to provide proof or resign as Miranda governor.
“Respond, you homosexual,” Carreno said during Tuesday’s legislative session. “Accept the challenge, you faggot.”
Carreno then claimed there is a police report saying Capriles was caught having oral sex in public in 2000.
President Nicolas Maduro hurled more invective Wednesday, alluding during a public event to lascivious material that he insinuated was seized from Lopez.
“Just 1 percent what was discovered was shown” in the National Assembly, Maduro said. “The videos and photos of orgies are not publishable.”
Capriles said Wednesday he was “honored” to be attacked by a government that he says is going to be brought down by its own corruption and what he says was the theft of the April 14 presidential election.
“If I was a homosexual I would acknowledge it with pride to the four winds,” Capriles said.
