Castro, Inc.’s latest cigar auction has yielded a very nice profit for the Caribbean island’s communist crime syndicate.

All of these tobacco masterpieces were grown on land stolen from its rightful owners, manufactured in facilities stolen from their rightful owners, and marketed with brand names stolen from their rightful owners.
Long live socialism/communism! And always remember: all pigs are equal, but some pigs are more equal than others!
And always remember this too: stealing is not a crime as long as you steal in the name of “social justice.”
The Castronoids who ran this auction claim ALL of the proceeds will go directly into the coffers of Cuba’s “wonderful” health care system.
