Yesterday afternoon, thousands of Cuban citizens took to the streets in the largest protest in decades. The protests took place in several cities, including Havana.
Senator Marco Rubio posted videos on Twitter today, showing that Cubans are still protesting, as they continue to fight for freedom from an oppressive government:
Daily Mail reports – President Joe Biden said Monday that he stands with the Cuban people and ‘their clarion call for freedom’ amid protests that brought thousands to the streets from Havana to Santiago on Sunday.
‘We stand with the Cuban people and their clarion call for freedom and relief from the tragic grip of the pandemic and from the decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime,’ Biden said.
He said the protests represented the Cuban people ‘asserting fundamental and universal rights.’
Senator Marco Rubio blasted the White House’s softball attempts to show support for the protesters, reminding them to add “Socialist and Communist” to their statement.
Of course, our dishonest Democrat Party media will accept Biden’s statement on its face and completely ignore the fact that his former boss and first lady made a splashy visit in March 2016 to Cuba with their girls in tow to show how “safe” and normal life is in Communist Cuba as he attempted to normalize relations with the communist country.
After Obama’s goodwill visit to Cuba, he agreed with the Cuban dictator of his criticism of America for our so-called human rights violations:
Barack Obama visited Cuba in March 2016. On April 13, 2016, we reported that the Cuban Human Rights and National Reconciliation Commission, or CCDHRN, revealed that Cuba’s government detained 610 people for political reasons in the month of March, while the Obama family visited. It was the highest number of political prisoners in the past seven months.
Why is Barack Obama’s former VP Joe Biden, getting a pass on being the vice president while his boss was attempting to convince Americans that we should normalize relations with Communist Cuba, one of the worst violators of human rights in the world?
