I do think it's interesting that this view is never, ever covered in the media.
I do not think it is completely accurate. I worked with a person who fought in the Bay of Pigs. He most definitely was not upper class ruling Cubans. Of course if they were they were clearly justified in having everything taken from them during the revolution, since they were so privelaged and all.

Damn ruling class.

Maybe it isn't, of course he has his views. But I don't think his views are really extreme either, meaning that having actually spent time in Cuba, it is not the first time I've come across this view. In fact while a lot of Cubans will privately be frank re: Castro, I also very early on realized that they have no major love lost for the Cubans in Florida.
