Raul Castro: Put’s the Gay in Communist…Or something.


As you know, Fidel Castro‘s days are numbered. While no one seems to know what number we’re on, it’s been pretty clear since July that he’ll soon be heading to the big commune in the sky.

In the meantime, he’s handed power over to his baby bro: Raul Castro [pictured, in happier times]. One thing we’re sure you’ll find interesting, as the newly revived Radar Magazine did, is that Raul’s a big ‘mo. While not officially out, rumors of his cock sucking ways pervade the country and he’s often referred to as “el maricon.” For those of you not versed in Spanish, that means “the faggot”. [See, who says blogs aren’t educational?]

Radar writes: “Asked how widespread the belief is, a member of a Cuban exile family from Miami told Radar simply, ‘Everyone knows Raul is gay.’”

So, if Fidel dies and Raul takes over, what are the odds he’ll ditch this whole Communist thing and turn Cuba into one big gay party? Well, not very good, but it doesn’t hurt to dream.

    Sadly – I suspect that this is more a case of homophobic disenters creating or feeding rumours of his being a homosexual to discredit him rather than people expressing a simple fact.

    ¿Un maricón en la familia Castro? ¡Qué bueno!

    Here’s hoping that Raul is indeed one of us and should he take power in Cuba that he would help end the official persecution of homosexuals. Wouldn’t it be nice if Cuba opened up and became a top gay tourist destination?

    Of course, we’d have to get a real president who wasn’t afraid of the Miami Mafia and would rescind the ridiculous boycott of Cuba.

    It would bring a whole new meaning to “in the Castro…”

    A faggot and a murder as well. Raul is known to have personally executed enemies of the revolution during the late 50’s and early 60’s. He is no better than his scumfuck older brother. They should both die already!
