Quote of the day

Mariela Castro, the daughter of Cuban dictator Raul Castro and princess of Cuba, talking about Cubans from Miami and elsewhere who visit the island to support and participate in gay rights activities organized by the Cuban dictatorship (via El Nuevo Herald – my translation):

“Many people from Miami have come here, Cubans that live in the United States or who reside in other countries (…) they tell me beautiful things because above all, they are surprised! […] They found out about an activity (against homophobia), they came here without exactly knowing what it was about and once here they were very surprised and have told me very interesting and beautiful things. They have said ‘I want to see it with my own eyes, that is why I came, I am so surprised, so amazed, this is astonishing.'”

  1. Doesn’t Mariela sound genuine and sincere? Of course she does. To Cuba experts. Official ones, that is. But yes, there are quite a few people (including gay people, who should know far better) that will buy her BS at face value, and she knows it.

    So who’s really more contemptible, the dictator’s daughter who’s simply being what she is and doing her part for the family franchise, or those who are stupid or perverse enough to play along with her game? I mean, how hard is it to figure her out? And by the way, she’s starting to look like Alicia Alonso. Serves her right.
