Disappointed old men
It’s always been the case – Cubans have never been good enough for the Messianic dictator. As far he is concerned, we are too lazy, too hungry for material benefits, prone to waste time dancing and drinking, not serious enough … and too darn ungrateful.
Si, senor, a huge disappointment.
Castro is at it again today, using his latest “editorial” to launch a blistering attack on Cubans who leave the island “illegally”, describing those who regularly risk their lives to flee his putrid legacy as nothing more than despicable, money-hungry infidels lacking “ethics”.
He is particularly upset by doctors and other medical staff who somehow end up living and working in the United States, the great enemy.
Castro believes that since those professionals have had the great privilege of being “given an education” by the “revolution”, they should be grateful and stay put in Cuba, even if they are underpaid and overworked.
Interestingly, his latest diatribe has been published so far only on selected Cuban Internet sites – as opposed to being published in the official Cuban print media, as has been the case in the past.
It seems to be a recent change in tactic by the regime, meaning that the old man’s running commentary on whatever comes into his head is now available only to outsiders and those few Cubans with access to the Internet.
As you can read in this article by the Spanish newsagency EFE, some Cubanologists believe this may signal serious disagreements within the ruling Communist Party about some of Castro’s views.
Or perhaps after 50 years of listening to the same old crap, they have had enough?
