"It was a loooot of fun!"

Miss Universe visits Guantanamo.
"We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the(y) recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting," she wrote.

"I didn't want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful," she added.
(Don't worry. She's not from the U.S.)

April fools?

She seems to have been there for the troops not the prisoners.

It's sad they couldn't get Miss South Carolina though.

Compared to some neighborhoods in Caracas, Guantanamo must look like an oasis of peace.

Good job Ms. Venezuela living up to the stereotype of the dumbass beauty contestant. Obviously she's never been to a gulag before.

Boy, that description don't fit the prescribed narrative at all, do it?

No matter, the detainees are about to be released into the US, on welfare. Won't that be a loooot of fun.

My terrorist went to Gitmo and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.

It must be the best of all possible gulags.

Reads like an Onion article.

There is a reason that Rush calls it "Club Gitmo", and that includes the fact that most of the terrorists being held there are living better than they ever have before, and better than 98% of their countrymen.

The hills surrounding Caracas are filled with ranchitos/shantytowns. The houses are built of lightweight ceramic bricks and are pretty sparse in human comfort and safety.

Here's a picture:

(Houses such as these are mainly what got wiped out in the mudslides a few years back.)

Guantanamo is not only safer, but more comfortable.

(Make no mistake, though, the nicest parts of Caracas are extremely nice, as could be expected in just about any country.)

Those that call Gitmo a "gulag" have never been to a real gulag or know of them. A real gulag you are forced to labor to death. That is a gulag.

"A real gulag you are forced to labor to death."

Correct. It is the same with the conflation of the concentration camps with the internment camps here in the US.

Now I find the internment camps reprehensible, but they were not at all like concentration camps. People who conflate the two show their ignorance or their immorality.

She's not into S&M is she?

MadisonMan said...

I just noticed: She's Miss Venezuela but she speaks like a Canadian, eh? A looot of fun?
