Protesters had particular complaints in regards to the nation’s meals shortages, excessive costs, and dealing with of the coronavirus outbreak, which have been appropriately attributed to their authorities.
The Biden administration was initially silent on the protests, and solely commented that they’d vow to sentence any violence in Cuba. Biden himself waited till this morning to say that the U.S. stands with the Cuban individuals.
Meanwhile the socialists in our Congress – Bernie Sanders in the Senate and all members of “The Squad” in the House – have remained fully silent. The Squad contains Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Jamaal Bowman, and Cori Bush.

Critics will probably say that these Democratic socialists are remaining quiet in the early phases of the protests as a result of there are such a lot of unknowns. Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who heads the Communist Party, has already known as on the nation’s revolutionaries to counter the demonstrators. “We are prepared to do anything,” he mentioned throughout a nationwide deal with. “We will be battling in the streets.”
The National Review reported that these legislators have by no means even denounced Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. Sanders, I-Vt., as soon as defended a few of the insurance policies of Cuba’s earlier communist dictator Fidel Castro.
Following his win throughout Nevada’s caucus in the 2020 Democratic primaries, Sanders was requested by Anderson Cooper throughout an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” why the Cuban individuals didn’t stand up and assist the U.S. overthrow the Castro regime. Sanders replied that the dictator “educated their kids, gave their kids health care, totally transformed the society.”
If or when our socialists in Congress do deal with the protests in Cuba, it’s extra probably they’ll find yourself siding with the regime.
