We’d laugh if this weren’t so damn pathetic.
When President Obama confidently asserted “this is what change looks like” during his Cuba embassy announcement last week, he couldn’t possibly have had in mind the picture of a bloodied and bandaged Antonio Rodiles.
And yet, the dissident leader warned Obama that very day in a tweet that appeasement meant more repression of dissidents.
Rodiles had to be operated on overnight to repair his nose after receiving a beating at the hands of state security agents. He had been arrested on Sunday along with 20 other people who had the temerity to march to Mass demanding that human rights and individual freedom be respected in Castro’s Caribbean island Gulag.
His prophetic tweet to Obama and U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power the day of the announcement simply asked, “How to talk about engagement after 11 Sundays of strong repression.”
Sure, we should normalize relations with these Communist thugs. And here come’s Obama’s stooge to beclown herself:

It’s almost as if Obama has a long history of failure:
