‘What is wrong with you?’ Fans beg liberal country star Tim McGraw to rethink propaganda trip to Cuba

A self-described “blue-dog Democrat” country music star who supported former President Barack Obama’s 2008 candidacy has sparked outrage by announcing that he intends to perform in the Communist dictatorship and veritable hellhole of Cuba next spring.

“The band and I are heading to Cuba in May. Can’t Wait! #HavanaNights,” country music singer Tim McGraw excitedly tweeted to his three million followers earlier this month, triggering outrage from those concerned about the left-wing nation’s history of human rights violations.

He included a video that invited his fans to spend thousands of dollars to travel to Cuba with him.

Watch:

McGraw has invited his American fans to spend between $2,999 to $5,799 to travel with him and spend four days at a music festival he’ll be hosting in Havana.

“The McGraw trip offers lodging in ocean-view rooms at Havana’s upscale Meliá Hotel, where a box of cigars and a bottle of rum will await each traveler,” Billboard reported at the time.

“The all-inclusive tour is designed to make foreigners’ typical Havana dreams come true, featuring a ride around Havana in a classic American convertible, a rumba party, and the chance to ‘Walk in the footsteps of Hemingway and Obama!’ in Old Havana.”

While the trip sounded fun and luxurious to some, to others it inspired even more frustration toward a music star whom many now feel doesn’t represent their values anymore.

While animosity toward McGraw began brewing in 2008, when he pledged that his his family would “do everything we can to support Obama,” it’s really hit the fan in the past few years.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE MISSING …

First McGraw joined the campaign for “common sense” gun control last year, arguing that “military weapons should not be in the hands of civilians.” By “military weapons” he meant ARs.

Then earlier this year he teamed up with former first lady Michelle Obama and other liberal celebrities for a “get out the vote” campaign that seemed more like a “get out the Democrat vote” campaign.

Watch:

The singer’s latest actions may be his most “offensive” thus far.

As noted by many on social media, Cuba is essentially a third-world dictatorship where the spoils of labor are hoarded by the Communists up top, while the “working class” is left to suffer under constant oppression, poverty and censorship.

Some find it ironic, given that Democrats like McGraw have made such a big stink about President Donald Trump’s alleged connections to the equally repressive country of Russia:

Cuban dissidents who live in the U.S. have also spoken out against McGraw, begging him to take some time to sit with them and learn Cuba’s real history.
