Cubans sick and tired of more than 62 years of tyranny and poverty after being promised 'utopia' by the 'great revolutionary' Fidel Castro have taken to the streets, some even waving American flags right along with banners of their own country. They are angry, they are poor and they are more than a little disillusioned.
Frankly, this is a moment that is rare in human history: A people so sick of authoritarianism they are willing to risk it all to be free -- just like our founding fathers (and, yes, the 'founding mothers' who stood by their men). It's a moment born for American support; it screams out for recognition from the U.S. government, the supposed bastion and exporter of individual freedom and liberty.
And yet, we've heard mostly tepid, boilerplate responses from the leftists who run the Biden regime, and we can guess why: The Marxists running the show behind the scenes are of like mind with the Castro-founded government of Cuba. That, and the Biden leftists are scared witless that a horde of Cuban refugees and migrants flooding into America like those from Central America will trend towards the only major liberty-minded party left in America -- the GOP.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki declined to blame communism for the current unrest in Cuba on Wednesday, when asked by Peter Doocy of Fox News whether communism was the reason that people might want to flee Cuba for the U.S.
The context of Doocy’s question was a previous query about a statement Tuesday by Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas that Cubans and Haitians should not come to the U.S. by sea — though the administration is making illegal entry easier through the southern land border with Mexico.
"As the administration tries to figure out the 'root causes' of migration to the country, don’t we know that the reason people want to leave Cuba is because they don’t like Communism?" Doocy asked.
"And so as you’re trying to figure out, like, what the processes are for these people who want to leave Cuba, is..." he continued, as Psaki interjected.
"Well, I’m not sure what your question is, why are people leaving Cuba, or what is the process for them getting here? I can explain either of them, but you tell me," she said.
"Sure, yeah. Do you think people are leaving Cuba because they don’t like Communism?" Doocy clarified.
Psaki just couldn't say the word, however.
"I think we’ve been pretty clear that we think people are leaving Cuba, or not — leaving Cuba, or protesting in the streets, as well, because they are opposed to the oppression, to the mismanagement of the government in the country. And we certainly support their right to protest, we support their efforts to speak out against their treatment in Cuba," she said.
"I will say, separately, an important question is also what happens when people are seeking protection, or what happens when they are attempting to flee. In the past, as I noted, we’ve had several humanitarian programs … But certainly, we have said many times, and I will reiterate here, that we support not just the role of the protest, and peaceful protests, we stand with the Cuban people in their call for freedom from both the pandemic and from decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime," she added.
'The pandemic?' What a lie.
Other critics believe that the Biden regime won't allow Cuban refugees into the country like it is allowing Central American migrants free access because Cubans won't vote for Democratic Party tyranny.
"DHS Secretary Mayorkas does not want legitimate asylum-seekers fleeing Cuba to come to the US despite his family having done just that. Apparently he only wants people pretending to need asylum because those people will still vote for socialist Democrats!" Donald Trump Jr. said.
“The admin should just come out and say that they’ll only allow in people who don’t vote Republican," conservative author and The First TV host Dana Loesch added.
"Cubans fleeing oppression and murder by their own government right now are the definition of *legitimate asylum seekers* But Democrats all of a sudden are anti-asylum, because a lot of Cubans vote Republican," The First TV host and radio talker Buck Sexton noted as well.
