The Communist regime in Cuba is currently facing the most unrest from its citizens in decades, and that’s a big deal because the regime doesn’t take kindly to dissent.
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.
