From The Times-Picayune

Since when have Cuba-U.S. relations been defined by trying to be (or not be) the “bad guy?”

The philosophy of the New Orleans-Mariel Amistad Society, and groups like it, undermine what the United States stands for: freedom, democracy and human rights. When these groups go out of their way to be the “good guy” and ignore the violations of human rights occurring in Cuba, they further damage the integrity of the U.S. stance.

Why should the “French, Italians, and Spanish have all the business” in Cuba? Because they don’t care what Castro is doing to his people. We, on the other hand, do. There is no gray area there. Putting the issue of human rights on the back burner in order to get in on the economic action is deplorable and an embarrassment to those Cubans who do have morals, character, and integrity.

Groups like these seem to say, “Yes, we know there is abuse going on in the Castro regime, but what the heck—there’s a business opportunity here!”
