Cuba, a country where the average weekly income is a whopping 584 pesos (or about $24.30 US) was run into the ground by the Fidel Castro, who accrued about $900 million as "Presidente para toda la vida." Many people were murdered by the Castro regime, many fled and died on the water, and some have lived to tell the story of Cuba.
Danilo Maldonado, the jailed artist, tells his story through his art. His story is one of communist opposition. And now, because he posted signs and drawings about the former scumcrumpet and his death, he has been arrested, according to his girlfriend Alexandra Martinez.
Martinez spoke to Maldonado from her home in Miami before he was taken from his home and incarcerated, she told FoxNews.com
Danilo chanted "Abajo Fidel, abajo Raul" ("Down with Fidel, down with Raul").
Martinez told Danilo that she would tell his story. "I said 'I love you, I'm telling everyone'" she explained. Maldonado had been trying to get permission to visit Miami this week to participate in an art event. Obviously, he was denied, in spite of the reports that citizens can now leave the enchanted commie island and travel where countries will allow them to enter.
Maldonado, 33, also known as "El Sexto" on social media, spent 10 months in prison about a year ago after posting a photo of 2 pigs with "Fidel" written on one and "Raul" on the other.
Martinez said that Danilo's mother tried to visit him in jail known to hold political prisoners, but the Cuban government wouldn't allow the visit. It is noteworthy that Maldonado has not been charged as yet.
Martinez said that Danilo's mother, Maria Victoria Machado Gonzalez, told her that she witnessed security personnel beat and drag her son as they took him to the police station.
This is the government the left praises and makes the "you gotta break a few eggs to make an omelette" excuse for the murder and brutality of the Castro government.
"El Sexto has become a prominent target of the Cuban regime because his graffiti art is one of the elite's most feared methods of protest as it exposes their true nature," Thor Halvorssen president of Human Rights Foundation said in a statement on the HFR's Facebook page.
"El Sexto's art unmasks the tyranny in ways white papers and press accounts cannot. Now that Castro will receive a pompous farewell, the regime will take measures to silence all voices for democracy and to drown out calls for reform," he added.
Amnesty International declared Maldonado a prisoner of conscience. Human Rights Foundation awarded him the Vaclav Havel Prize for Creative Dissent.
Obama awarded Fidel Castro with excuses.
And Justine Trudeau Canada's PM, is a Clinical Idiot and awarded Castro with love and praise.
