U.S. Asst. Sec. of State Kozak: Vacationing in Cuba funds the repressive Castro dictatorship

It’s simple: When you vacation in socialist Cuba at regime-owned hotels and resorts and partake in their Potemkin Village tours, you are directly funding a murderous and repressive dictatorship.

Michael Kozak: Vacationing in Cuba is a financial contribution to a repressive system

On Thursday the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, Michael Kozak, warned on Twitter that vacationing in Cuba is a financial contribution to a repressive system.

In his tweet, Kozak presented this question: “All-inclusive beach resorts?”

He then writes: “Behind the facade is a corrupt system of human rights abuse, political imprisonment, and restrictions on personal freedom.”

In tweets he has published in recent days, the U.S. diplomatic official has warned that Cuba’s military get dollars from tourism and uses that money to fund their machine of repression.

The Assistant Secretary of State for the Western Hemisphere has used his high-ranking position in the U.S. State Dept. to lead a crusade against tourism to the island and foreign investments as well as the purchase of government products such as tobacco. The business contributes to growing misery for the Cuban people while greasing the gears of the regime’s machine of repression.

  1. Sorry. The usual suspects have no problem with this–they couldn’t care less. Nice try, though.

    In other words, the “rules” do not apply equally to everyone, and in the case of Cuba, they don’t apply at all.
