Reports from Cuba: Public Displays of Affection, Cuban Dictatorship Edition

Alexis Romay reports in 14yMedio from New Jersey via Translating Cuba:

Public Displays of Affection, Cuban Dictatorship Edition

Lis Cuesta with Miguel Díaz-Canel. (Facebook)

Díaz-Canel has a wife
whose tackiness knows no bounds.
It’s not as cute as it sounds,
in the midst of Cuba’s strife,
when she says that, in her life,
he’s “The Dictator.” For sure!
(Lis Cuesta is done with demure.)
Cubans long to live in peace.
That regime is a disease,
and we are ready for the cure.

  1. Cuesta has adopted a higher profile recently. She now has a Twitter account, which of course she’s using, and her tone is more forward and “revolutionary” than formerly. No doubt there’s a reason for that, though it’s not clear if all this is based on her initiative or someone else’s (particularly her husband’s).

  2. It’s simple: the regime doesn’t respect ordinary Cubans because it doesn’t think it needs to. When bad people feel untouchable, they can get blatant about it, because they expect to get away with it.
