Representative Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL) nailed the Democrat Party by comparing their promises to those made by the Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
During the Republican Weekly Address on Saturday, Salazar said, “Today the Cuban People are crying out. They rally in the streets of Cuba, chanting, ‘LIBERTAD.’ Liberty. Yet for 62 years, Misery has become the Cuban birthright. The Communist Regime has ruled with violence, lies, and oppression. But no more. The Cuban people have nothing left. No rights and no freedom, but even more importantly: no fear. The world is watching as tens of thousands of Cubans take to the streets, but the regime is fighting back. The regime is a satanic nightmare.”
The iron rule of the socialist Cuban dictatorship has left the island nation in misery for decades. Now the people are rising up and demanding a change after decades of violence and exploitation.
Salazar continued saying, “When Fidel Castro took power in 1959, he promised the riches of the world, and called it democratic socialism. This is the same false promise being brought to you today by liberal politicians, Hollywood, academia, and the legacy media. Socialism is socialism, no matter what word you put on the front of it. It is a sickness that crushes the soul. Cuba is the best example of this. Our founding fathers rejected it and entrenched individual rights in our Constitution for all to enjoy. The Cuban people want the same things that we have in America. The US is the bastion of liberty.”
Salazar ended her call to action by saying, “Long live freedom and the United States. Cuba Libre.” Republicans like Salazar stand firmly behind the people of Cuba, and the Democrat Party has yet to respond.
Democrats understand that they cannot support the protests in Cuba without exposing their own agenda. The totalitarian dictatorship and the Democrat Party are fellow travelers, and that relationship will create nightmares for Democrats.
