Florida's Republican congressman mark.
The F -- says he's had enough and he joins me now congressman you have been furious about this the last couple of days why.
Better about furious but frankly I'd.
I'll tell you discipline and amazed.
You've got a number of entertainers who for example have gone to the state sponsor of terrorism island which is and Castro's Cuba.
They've been there they've hobnobbing with the dictatorship they probably don't meet with the opposition that on me with the families of the political prisoners.
Some of those and -- say that you should boycott.
A land of freedom a land where people can.
You know choose what they want to do -- and open businesses are often not open businesses you know that the double standard is frankly.
Pretty silly at best.
Pretty silly at best but I think it's probably more serious and and I one thing I think we should probably point out a lot of Americans I don't know that they understand Cuba then.
You of course you know it intimately I think you're on was Fidel Castro's first wife.
You understand the atrocities that have gone on there you have been a big proponent against not helping them in any way trade currency.
Tourism you say no anything that benefits the Castro regime we should say no to so it does impact you.
A lot more than the average person out there.
If you would think that -- -- so elected Jay-Z who's very influential having gone there would at least have come back and says you know.
Things about it that that didn't make it seem like it was some sort of -- -- that America was punishing.
Yeah I know you're right.
Look -- I've I've been very consistent on on supporting a two prong approach approach.
-- -- dictatorship number one is trying to do whatever we can to make sure that the regime doesn't get hard currency which by the way they used to among other things.
-- down American airplanes and -- national airspace.
Well there they have an American hostage since the summer of 09.
The other part of the of the strategies to help the internal opposition to civil society the pro democracy groups.
Who are struggling to to try to bring democracy to the island now look it shouldn't surprise you you have.
A lot of entertainers I've seen -- you without Che Guevara T shirt.
You know -- tomorrow you just look at his quotes the things that -- -- are upset about blacks.
He was an incredible races the things he set about Mexicans.
The things he said about you know -- It doesn't require evidence to execute people the things you said about wanting to -- New York City and murder of Americans.
And yet you have some of these folks wearing -- of our teachers.
Well like some people don't know better.
But in this case they went to Cuba.
They they they -- -- with the regime they did the whole regime agenda.
They did not meet by the way with opposition leaders -- there's a rapper who's been in prison in Cuba because all you want to do is saying his rap music.
JC didn't even want to meet with him.
It's really sat in that double standard is frankly destructive dangerous and and -- a little -- big top.
It's you know by the way we should also point out -- Justin Timberlake The Rolling Stones at.
You know I thought Rolling -- -- thought maybe you know they're trying to -- make up for that line maybe you -- the Puerto Rican girls this time to -- just.
There's never -- -- even with a thirty year old slight but it seems like this is just a hip thing to do right now you think you'd have to have any impact on the state it at all economically.
-- -- alone coming legislative Florida is doing better than than most of the states.
In the country.
Unemployment numbers are dropping much quicker than the rest of the country investment is increasing job creating is increasing.
Look at odds with -- we appreciate good entertainment and but I think we have to remember who these folks are.
People appreciate them for there entertainment value not exactly and honestly for their intellectual value.
However when they do things like -- not with anti American terrorist regimes.
Then I think that's when you draw the line and we should say I got up out.
I'm getting -- the signal this book broke precedent can tell me do you think that there are actually these actions actually -- Florida as a racist state.
And actually will make race relations worse or or or then they have to be.
Now you alone on the -- the realities within a great -- in a great country thank you very much really appreciate your time.
Thank you -- --
