Pablito Milanes squeals for more freedom in Cuba

http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSK-ewvbmtm_9juSXghGwe4FjST5Ua_B-i-AzF3YaXLP5sex69TWith his concert in Miami — the Cuban exile capital of the world — drawing near, Fidel Castro sycophant and regime propagandist Pablito “el puerquito llorón” Milanes is conveniently calling for more freedom in Cuba.

Singer Pablo Milanes urges more freedom in Cuba

MIAMI (Reuters) – One of Communist-ruled Cuba’s best-known singers, Pablo Milanes, said in quoted comments he would like to see more freedom to protest on the island as he prepared for a controversial concert this month in Miami.

Miami’s Spanish language El Nuevo Herald newspaper published an interview on Sunday with the 68-year-old two-time Grammy award winner, whose melodic and evocative ballads are well known in Latin America and internationally.

Milanes’ planned August 27 concert in Miami, a bastion of anti-communist Cuban exiles in the United States, has touched off a storm of discord between those who criticize him as a stooge of the communist government in Havana and many fans and supporters who defend his right to perform in Miami.

I would love to hear Pablito make this same call for more freedom in Cuba to the international press right before he performs a concert at the Karl Marx Theater in Havana. That, of course, will never happen, because the only time pigs don’t squeal is when they are feeding at the trough.

  1. But of course, this has NOTHING to do with deflecting criticism for being a Castro lackey for decades, or with trying to win over the “undecided” to go ahead and buy those tickets to his concert. He’s just, you know, very complex and stuff. Some people just can’t ever make up their minds one way or another, so they keep waffling and swaying and flip-flopping. By the way, is John Kerry coming to this concert? He should.

  2. Milanés, in early August of 2006, sent Fidel Castro a “get well” letter as follows:

    “Dear Fidel: I wish you the best in your convalescence. I have to honor unavoidable obligations abroad and I promise to represent you and the Cuban people as this moment deserves: with unity and courage against any threat or provocation. A hug, your Pablo Milanés.”

    This may not have been as bad as the mass for Fidel’s recovery given by Cardinal Ortega, which was essentially praying for the devil, but it’s bad enough.

    EXACTLY! And of course, after making this statement if anyone decides to protest el puerquito lloron, the MSM will call him intolerant and beastly, because Milanes is after all, an er, uh, “opposer,” of the regime.
