They already have apartheid resorts in Cayo Largo del Sur, an island which Castro, Inc. has granted to them and is now an apartheid enclave with its own airport, totally off-limits to Cubans.

And on this “private island” — basically a Canadian free state within Castrogonia — Sunwing/Blue Diamond has been granted the rare privilege of controlling all of its own imports, which will be flown directly to that new airport, bypassing the dysfunctional bureaucracy of Castro, Inc’s Ministry of Commerce. This allows them to advertise gourmet restaurants that lack nothing at all, and can even offer peanut butter and Nutella. Of course, with their own power plant fueled directly with Canadian oil shipments, they can also guarantee no blackouts.

And only one month ago, they took control of a five-star luxury hotel in Havana. But, apparently, that’s not enough for them or for Castro, Inc., which must have obviously been promised a huge share of the profits.

Despite the fact that the number of tourists flocking to Castrogonia has declined sharply, this very same firm —Blue Diamond Resorts — is opening. another five-star hotel in Havana.

This is what the “Revolution” was all about, you see. It has always been about granting all sorts of privileges to foreigners (Soviets, Spaniards, Canadians) so that a small number of privileged Cuban thugs can remain in control. Socialism in action! Three cheers for the new Canadian luxury hotels in Havana, and infinite cheers for the Grand Duchy of Little Canada in Cayo Largo del Sur! Apartheid now, apartheid forever!

Welcome to the Grand Duchy of Little Canada

  1. Ah, but I have absolutely no doubt that true Cuba experts, like the New York Times, see this sort of thing very differently. Just creative entrepreneurship and maximizing complicit, I mean friendly, foreign relations.
