Quote of the Day – The ‘mercenaries’ who criticize Cuba’s Castro dictatorship for free

One of the favorite defenses against criticism employed by Cuba’s Castro dictatorship is to call those who criticize them “mercenaries.” According to the Castro regime, everyone loves them and the only way you can get someone to criticize their corruption and murderous repression is to pay that person.

However, what they fail to take into consideration when using this laughable line of defense is that as Enrique del Risco points out, we are more than happy to criticize them for free and take great pleasure in doing so (via Facebook – my translation):

“When Castroism accuses its critics of being mercenaries, it assumes that no one would criticize them unless they were paid to do so. As if it was impossible to criticize them for free and with great pleasure.”
