Here's what the media focused on this week in Cuba, courtesy of President Obama's policy:
Chanel glamorizing Cuba's despotism, the Kardashians frivolizing its repression, Gisele Bundchen idolizing Che, and Carnival travelers paraded around by Castro's intelligence services (through the MININT-owned entity, Havanatur).
Here's what the media ignored this week in Cuba, also courtesy of President Obama's policy:
The Cuban Commission for Human Rights (CCHR) has documented 1,380 political arrests by the Castro regime during the month of April 2016.
As such, there have been 5,351 political arrests in Cuba during the first four months of 2016.
This represents -- by far -- the highest monthly average in decades.
It's tenfold the monthly average of political arrests from 2010, as Obama began his presidency.
And these are only political arrests that have been thoroughly documented. Many more are suspected.
Supporters of Obama's policy argue that U.S. policy previously served as a distraction for Castro's repression.
Yet, as the facts now prove, nothing serves as a better distraction for Castro's repression than Obama's celebrity circus (and Carnival).
