Well, you knew this was next, didn’t you? Didn’t we all see this coming?
Could anyone find a better way to make the Normalization Circus permanent than a gigantic American-built theme park in the Castro Kingdom, replete with apartheid hotels and costumed figures of Fidel, Raul, Che, and Camilo walking around, posing for photos with foreign visitors?
Apparently, those who are dreaming this up are dead serious, and they are thinking big. This nightmare wonderland would be the second largest in the world, bigger than any of the Disney parks.
No mention has been made of casinos on the grounds, but you can bet your bottom dollar that they are part of the plan.
The identity of the “well-known U.S. giant” developer has not been revealed.
Yeah. Welcome to the future of the slave island plantation formerly known as Cuba.
For some of us older exiles, the only consolation offered by these plans is that when the park opens five years from now, we might be dead and gone and won’t have to lay eyes on news stories about this monstrousity or ads inviting Americans to visit it.
Suggestion for meditation: imagine yourself — or anyone — visiting a theme park anywhere with costumed mass murderers posing for photos with visitors: Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao, Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein, etc.. Or imagine yourself as an employee of this park, serving the needs of foreign visitors, having 92 percent of your wages claimed by your government.
