Beware of red-suited American profiteers bearing gifts

In a sickening performance in Havana reminiscent of the old Nazi propaganda films, American cattle rancher John Parke Wright dressed up in a Santa suit and gave out gifts to Cuban children yesterday in commemoration of El Día de los Reyes Magos. According to the article, the kids “shrieked with pleasure” upon receiving these gifts from the wealthy Florida rancher who was accompanied by, of all people, fidel’s nephew Angel Ramon Castro.

Although it is hard to find fault in giving these poor kids who have suffered so much gifts on this occasion, one has to wonder if Mr. Wright looked these young, innocent children in the eyes and explained to them that his need to make a profit supersedes their need for freedom. Perhaps he explained to them that, by no fault of theirs, they were being used as pawns in a political game where he is positioning himself to reap huge profits by dealing with the vile and oppressive regime that unjustly incarcerates their parents, relatives, friends, and neighbors. Maybe, Mr. Wright hopes, some sneakers and athletic socks will help these children deal with the knowledge that they live in a country where they are subject to brutal beatings for speaking out against the regime that he is so friendly with.
But most likely Mr. Wright is just interested in scoring some public relations points and he has no problem using innocent children to do so. That, if his choice of friends were not enough, is quite a commentary on the true character of the man.

  1. Aw, aren’t they cute old geezers? The parasite brother of Big Daddy and the redneckish Neo-Carpetbagger, bound and determined to make a profit out of them thar’ Q-bans, Miami be damned.

  2. Profits before principles, indeed!! Would it be too much to expect Mr. Wright to do what’s RIGHT? Let’s just hope that the toys given to Cuban children were not re-called toys made in China … after all we know he does not have their best interest at heart!
    . . . I’m sure those are Cuban cigars in his guayabera pocket … illegal in the USA due to the embargo … but does it matter to him? Think not!!!
    Thanks Alberto 🙂

  3. Melek, the old fart with the cigars is Fifo’s brother. The rednecky guy with the BIG cowboy hat is the Ugly American.

  4. Thanks Asombra! 🙂
    While posting my comment, I only had partial view and I guess the “anger” blinded me … because there’s no doubt that Ramon castro is the “farting” image of the “anal” dictator.

  5. How incongruous!
    Santa Claus passing out candy on the day of the Epiphany? And in a Roman Catholic convent? Mr. Wright should’ve asked his friends Christopher Dodd and Charles Rangel to come down to Cuba and all three could have passed themselves off as the “Three un-Wise Men.”
    Mr. Wright by doing wrong has sealed his fate.
