Cuban Uprising Rattles American Socialists; The Cuban People are Fed Up With Being Lackeys for the Communist Oligarchy


WASHINGTON, DC, July 12 — American commies are rattled by the upheaval in Havana of anti-Communist resistors. Even Bernie Sanders, who has extolled the Cuban communist dictator, Fidel Castro, can’t seem to respond to the news. It’s likely that Sanders will come up with a statement that will whitewash the Cuban government one way or another. If he can. 

As of Sunday night, however, he was speechless.

In the meantime, the Cuban citizenry is shouting loud and clear that they are fed up with being lackeys for the Communist oligarchy.

According to Fox News, “Following his win during Nevada’s caucus in the 2020 Democratic primaries, Sanders was asked by Anderson Cooper during an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” why the Cuban people didn’t rise up and help the U.S. overthrow the Castro regime. Sanders replied that the dictator “educated their kids, gave their kids health care, totally transformed the society.”

Well, it seems that the Cuban people have finally found a voice, taking to the streets on Sunday chanting “down with the dictatorship.” And Bernie is at a loss for words, although it is very likely that he’ll come up with something to say to defend his Communist beliefs and the dictatorship in Cuba. 

Marco Rubio was quick to post a message on Twitter with a video of the demonstrations captioned: “Frustration with the dictatorships incompetence, greed & repression is mounting rapidly.”

Not long ago, Sanders was reported as defending the Castro takeover of Cuba, saying that, “I remember, for some reason or another, being very excited when Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba. I was a kid … and it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people.”

In her New York Times column, Maureen Dowd wrote, “Sanders passionately believes that the only way to undo the damage done by Donald Trump and Trumpism is by showing that government can deliver, that good policy can overcome dangerous conspiracy theories and lies.” 

Nice try. Tell it to the Marines or, better yet, tell it to the citizens of the towns and cities across the island state of Cuba who took to the street decrying “human rights abuses, a lack of freedom, and a worsening economic situation in the communist-ruled country,” as the Epoch Times reported.

According to Cuban strongman Miguel Diaz Canel, the Cuban government blamed the uprising on a smear campaign orchestrated by the U.S.. But Florida Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar, the daughter of Cuban exiles, said that one of the first things that Cuban Diaz Canel did was shut down the Internet in Cuba to stifle a ripple effect.

And, according to the Epoch Times, Miami Mayor Francis Suare issued a statement that described the Cuban people as “worthy and ready to rule themselves without tyranny” It can end today, and it must end today. The implications of this moment can mean freedom for millions of people in the hemisphere, from Nicaraguans and Venezuelans and so many more.”

Suare said he hopes that the U.S. will intercede.

Meanwhile, Maximo Alvarez, a prominent Cuban ex-pat who is living in Florida, warns that America may be headed for the same fate that Cuba experienced under the dictatorship of Fidel Castro. After the presidential election, he predicted the U.S will be turning into Cuba under a Biden presidency.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted the prediction that the “Communist Cuban regime will be consigned to the dustbin of history. It has brutalized & denied freedom to generations of Cubans and forced my family & so many others to flee. The American people stand squarely with the men & women of Cuba and their noble fight for liberty.”

I think that as long as the socialists/communists are in power in the swamp the U.S. should stay out of “helping” the Cuan people. With O’Biden in charge the only U/S. help the Cubans will get is helping the government to repress them more.

Interesting! Home Land Security, Secretary is telling the Cubans “Not to come to USA”. I called that SELECTIVE ILLIGAL IMMIGRATION. He needs to go to the Southern Border and do the same across the border of Texas, Arizona and California; otherwise, my dear Secretary you are just an inept person incapable to accomplish any thing. At list the Cubans are fighting for real liberation. Let’s hope for the best. 60 years of Castro regime it is too much. It is time for the Cubans to be free.

When the news about Cuba first hit the airwaves, O’Biden claimed it was Trump’s fault. A very short tie later, the claim was the strife was caused by Covid. Then it became Trump’s fault again. But it quickly became evident, even to our clueless Democratic leadership, the Cuban populace was seriously upset by the lives they are forced to lead. Now what we hear form those miscreants in DC is that ‘Murica is with the Cubans and their desire for change 100%, while still trying to change OUR society to become more like THEIR society. And Venezuela. And China. And wherever the dictatorship is living large while their societies are merely existing.

Is it 2022 YET?! I’m ready………

Cuba is a disaster. The repressive system was accepted by many in the early days on the promise that their lives would be made better. They traded freedom for what they were told would be security, healthcare and equality. Once the executions and the appropriation of private property was started by the Castro regime people began to wake up. This is what happens when you trade freedom for promises from politicians. Let this example highlight the importance of fighting to maintain individual liberty in our country. My and many other families suffered significantly at the hands of this criminal regime. We should do everything we can to help liberate the people from this repressive government.

Good things are happening. Between 1990 and 2018, the number of populists in power around the world has increased a remarkable five fold, from four to 20.
This includes countries not only in Latin America and in Eastern and Central Europe—where populism has traditionally been most prevalent—but also in Asia and in Western Europe. Even Tony Blair of Great Britain, a liberal, has said recently that, “Populism is dramatically shifting the global political landscape.” People across the globe are REJECTING the elite liberal secular globalism. It is going down. Look at what is happening in France, Italy, Germany, Britain, Hungary, Poland, etc, etc. Countries are waking up because they are losing their National Identities. Cuba is just the latest example. Countries across the globe are moving toward going back to traditional Nation States. . The liberal marixist left is ignoring it or TOTALLY MISSING IT.

America has had an immigration policy granting asylum for just such a circumstance as this. Biden and the dems have let 1 MILLION people into this country without the American PEOPLE wanting it so. These are criminals, EVERYONE! They have already broken our laws by entering illegally. Many are criminal gun runners, child traffickers, drug smugglers, rapists and murderers. What does the Biden “administration” say? They are “welcome, we’ll spend BILLIONS of TAX $$ on them, even if the taxpayers say ‘NO'” What about the ACTUAL refugees?? They are told they are “NOT welcome” and to “go back and stay away!” Politicians are supposed to work for the people…. it’s gotten reversed… THEY do whatever they want and the people work to pay the taxes for their lavish spending. All out war is pending and I’m having a difficult time trying to figure out how remaining passive can in any way be better for us.

The left doesn’t want to admit Cubans for one simple reason. They have lived under a Communist dictatorship for decades. They know first hand that Communism/Marxism/Socialism does not work. They know it destroys lives, and entire societies. The Left knows the majority of Cubans, if allowed to vote in a free and fair election will vote for Conservatives.

Why would you think that Joe Biden and company would support the Cuban people when he is trying to be the same kind of dictator here in America???It looks like the American people need to rise up as well!

May God be with the Cuban people as they unite and strategize their future free nation. Every human being deserves every opportunity to enjoy their God-given privileges of freedom. May free people everywhere do all we can to support their journey to freedom.

I was a young Navy wife in Key West, FL IN 1958. On New Year’s Eve every sailor was called to report to their ships immediately. We had no idea why so the next morning a few of us gathered in my apartment because we had learned our ships were in Havana Harbor. I had a radio that could receive Havana. One of our group spoke Spanish. I picked up a station broadcasting from Havana and she translated for us. The woman was listing names of those in Cuba who wanted to let their families in the US know they were alright. Suddenly we heard a loud sound. It was the door to the studio being smashed in. The woman screamed and begged for her life but she was shot on air. I was 17 at the time. I am 80 now. I will never forget her murder and I will never forget the warnings from Cubans on the island who had escaped because they knew Castro was a communist and would destroy their country. Every time I heard our government support Castro I wanted to scream. I have hated Castro and communism since New Year’s Day 1959 and will until the day I die.

What year did Cuba become Communist? Was it when Fidel came to power in 50’s and Cuba still has strong ties & support from Russia at the current time.

Castro began his takeover late 1958. He succeeded New Year’s Day 1959. I was in Key West at the time.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
