Cuban Tourism Executive: Dissidents Are "Impure People"

Tuesday, April 28, 2015
In a recent interview, Castro business confidant and lead trafficker of stolen properties, Eusebio Leal, called Cuban dissidents "impure people who lack intellectual capacity."

"Seeing them is like having mud splashed on a clean suit," Leal added in an apparently racist inference (as some of the most renowned Cuban dissident leaders are black).

Leal (pictured below) is the Castro executive who runs Habaguanex S.A., a tourism conglomerate that owns and operates the emblematic Old Havana district, a controlled area designated for foreign tourists.

Among Habaguanex's holdings is the Hotel Saratoga, a favorite of U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT).

Leal is also a Castro intermediary for some prominent Cuban-American businessmen.

Not to be outdone by Leal, Abel Prieto, Castro's former Minister of Culture, recently declared that legalizing the Cuban democratic opposition would be like normalizing Al Qaeda.

And adding insult to injury, Castro regime "civil society" official, Rev. Raul Suarez, recalled how he "felt the presence of God" in the violent "acts of repudiation" (in which he participated) against peaceful Cuban democracy activists in Panama.

Leal is a staple of visiting U.S. business delegations to Cuba.

Prieto and Suarez are staples of U.S. "people-to-people" travelers.

This is what Obama is normalizing.
