ended me up here:
pretty scary stuff. also interesting how castro is transforming cuba into a tourist paradise where regular cubans aren't even allowed. including beaches, buses, hotels, hospitals. in what is interestingly called "tourist apartheid." where the castro regime is spending millions of dollars on creating a modern, almost entirely capitalist, industry. that cubans, by law - and the obvious prison and torture that backs cuban laws - aren't allowed to step foot in.

I dont know if anyone looked at the useful idiot page, or they just went to the tourist apartheid ones. but there's some astounding idiots out there.
"Supermodel Naomi Campbell Fidel Castro was "a source of inspiration to the world. I'm so nervous and flustered because I can't believe I have met him. He said that seeing us in person was very spiritual," said Campbell after meeting with Castro, according to the Toronto Star.
Comedian Chevy Chase, at Earth Day 2000 in Washington D.C., said he believes "socialism works" and explained that "Cuba might prove that."
Kevin Costner after going to Cuba in 2001 to preview his film "13 Days": "It was an experience of a lifetime to sit only a few feet away from him and watch him relive an experience he lived as a very young man."
"He is a genius. We spoke about everything," actor Jack Nichols after meeting with Castro in 1998. Saul Landau, an Emmy award-winning filmmaker: Castro "has brought a greater equality in terms of wealth distribution than I guess any country in the world today."
Film director Steven Spielberg visited Cuba and met with Castro in November of 2002 and dined with the dictator until the early morning hours. Afterward, Spielberg announced that his dinner with Castro "was the eight most important hours of my life." Not the day of his wedding. Not the day that his kids were born. The most important hours of his life was the time that he spent with this criminal. Click Here to read more about Spielberg's visit to Havana"

Hollowood has always loved communists and socialists so I'm not surprised.
