MSNBC Host: Americans Are a Plague on The World

You know what the biggest problem facing Cuba in its new relationship with the United States might be? The plague of American tourists. 

According to MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry, the woman who wears tampon earrings on air and thinks your children belong to "the community," the plague of American tourists might be the downside of reopening travel to the communist state.

"On the one hand, it is great to reopen these relationships. On the other hand, I worry about American tourists and the ways we can sometimes be a plague on the rest of the world, particularly in these nations that become high-tourist economies. And I’m wondering if there’s a downside to our economic ties opening up with Cuba, for Cuba," Harris-Perry said during her weekend show to a group of panelists.

One of the main reasons why Cuba has an interest in Americans traveling to their country is so the "plague" of wealth can be spent in their country to build the very economy Harris-Perry tears down in her comments (and then so the Castro brothers can take it from the people who earn it, because that's how communism works). In fact, around the world American tourists contribute approximately $80 billion to "tourist economies" each year, giving the people who live in those countries jobs and a better life for their families.

You can learn more about the economic benefits of tourism through the World Travel & Tourism Council's 2014 report.

As Ed Morrissey noted , Cuba already has a high tourism industry thanks to the rest of the world, but of course, Harris-Perry only believes it's the Americans who should be classified as a "plague."
