Yesterday Obama visited the Our Lady of Charity shrine in Miami, a VERY symbolic and SACRED place for the Cuban Exile community. Now because of this visit many are calling this a “symbolic” visit or an “olive branch” extended out to the Cuban Exile community because of Obama’s move to normalize relations with the dictatorship of Cuba.
On the outside, it seems warm, and fuzzy. The first President to visit the shrine, but a DEEP DOWN feeling that I have is that of a MACHETE piercing through my back.
-Well let’s see…..The US is about to drop Cuba form the State sponsor of terrorism. What a coincidence that TODAY is the last day of the 45 day period that congress could of challenged the President’s decision to remove Cuba form the state sponsored terror list.
- Obama opened the door for the normalization of relations between Cuba and the US.
-Basically the President ignored and left out the Cuban exile community and the people of Cuba.
But….Alfredo, the president visited our shrine and said “hola” to those in the church! Yes, and the dictator Fidel and his revolutionaries came down the mountain all wearing rosaries…..and 56 years later …the nightmare continues!!!
