For Once, I Agree With Perez Roque

That’s right, I said it. I whole-heartedly agree with Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque.

A United Nations press release dated today, September 27, and released on behalf of the Cuban delegation led by Fidel’s on-island lap-dog calls for a more “democratic and transparent UN.” Going even further, Perez Roque remarks:

“The Human Rights Council should not repeat the mistakes of its predecessor, the Commission on Human Rights, he said, calling for an end to selectivity and double standards.”

This is quite possibly one of the most oblivious statements I’ve read from a Cuban government official in a long time. There is, on the part of Perez Roque, either a complete disconnect from reality or, a brazen disregard for the Cuban people. In order to fix the vast problems inherent in the Human Rights Council, Cuba and several other egregious human rights violators would have to be tossed out. As far as the title of his press release is concerned, Perez Roque might want to start off with a more “democratic and transparent” Cuba.

Felipe, I couldn’t agree with you more. The United Nations – in particular it’s Human Rights Council – has become nothing more than a grand stage for inaction, vote-buying and the tacit support of dictatorships around the world. I applaud your noble efforts and wish you the very best. Jackass.

  1. Little Felipe, among other things, is a monumental embarrassment as a Foreign Affairs minister. It couldn’t be more obvious he’s utterly unfit for such a job, but then again, there’s always little Hugo in Caracas, who makes virtually anybody look at least adequate. Being Cuban is no picnic, but being Venezuelan must be practically unbearable.
