Following Sunday’s protest in Cuba, Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been questioned over a communist regime that shares ideological roots together with her platform, opposing the liberties and life-style of a capitalist America.
When requested in regards to the failing Cuban authorities and its oppressive ruling, AOC caught the eye of Democrats and Republicans, most notably former Florida Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, for blaming the U.S. in her response.
While opposing nearly all of blatant human rights violations from Cuba’s communist authorities, AOC’s headline-grabbing excerpt got here when she blamed a U.S. embargo as purpose for the Cuban authorities’s constraint on assets and private liberties.
“The embargo is absurdly cruel and, like too many other US policies targeting Latin Americans, the cruelty is the point,” mentioned AOC. “I outright reject the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo. It is never acceptable for us to use cruelty as a point of leverage against every day people.”
Responding to the feedback made Thursday, Rep. Mucarsel-Powell tweeted in opposition to AOC’s shaming of the U.S., mentioning the faults and omissions from the Cuban communist dictatorship.
“No. This is not correct,” mentioned Mucarsel-Powell. “It’s the failed policies of a communist regime that has violated human rights, imprisoned & killed dissidents.”
The New York 14th district political’s blaming of an embargo, in place since 1962, didn’t give a lot consideration to the American flags waved thrgohout the Cuban protestors on Sunday.
Repeating an anti-American sentiment that BLM made in response to the Cuban protests, AOC failed to totally condemn the communist regime in favor of figuring out America because the oppressor. As AOC’s radical rhetoric divides individuals, and figures inside her political get together, the left-wing agenda sees Cuba’s authorities as extra of a basis for development reasonably than an unbelievable governance over individuals looking for freedom.
