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.”
