Cuban Democracy Activists vs. Hillary Clinton

We know this isn't the first time Hillary Clinton sided with the repressive Castro dictatorship in opposing freedom; we will never forget her role in denying Elian Gonzalez his God given rights.

Capitol Hill Cubans:

Irony of the Week: Cuban Democracy Activists vs. Hillary Clinton

This week, 574 Cuban democracy activists associated with the Civil Resistance Front, led by former prisoner of conscience Jorge Luis Garcia Perez "Antunez," courageously signed their names to a letter rejecting current efforts to ease U.S. sanctions.

Note: In Cuba, it's easy (and even wins you favor) to state opposition to U.S. sanctions, but expressing support is punishable with up to 15 years in prison.

These 574 democracy activists are in addition to recent statements against lifting U.S. sanctions by The Ladies in White, with hundred of members throughout the island; the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU), with thousands of activists; Estado de Sats, the largest independent think-tank; The Emilia Project, led by Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet; and the Christian Liberation Movement, with its nation-wide presence.

Despite their courage and the fact that these activists are the ones suffering the brutal repression of the Castro regime, it's practically ignored in the media.

Meanwhile, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton writes in her new book that she advised President Obama to ease sanctions -- against the wishes of these courageous Cuban activists on the ground -- and it's celebrated all over the media.

Shameful.

We proudly stand with Cuba's democracy activists.

    Wait, so this opportunistic bitch who wouldn't know decency from dry semen or honor from dog shit was supposed to do what? Atone for Elián González? Even if some brain injury made her want to do that, she wouldn't know how to go about it effectively. Her track record, such as it is, speaks for itself. Besides, at least she's not the titular Vicar of Christ, like a certain Benedict XVI, for instance.
