The United States Congress on Wednesday voted on House Resolution 760, a symbolic decision expressing assist for the Cuban individuals who have and proceed protesting, in search of “libertad,” or liberty on the imprisoned island run by a tyrannical communist regime.
The decision, meant to be bipartisan because it was launched by South Florida democrat Debbie Wasserman Shultz and agreed to by 240 Republicans, condemns the communist regime’s violent response to the peaceable protests.
So fairly easy stuff:
Good guys wanting freedom and liberty get a yea vote.
Communist dangerous guys answering with violence to remain in energy helped by a nay vote.
The United States Congress ought to clearly aspect with good and never wickedness.
And but 40 democrats voted in opposition to the decision. Some of these had been Hispanics, though not Cuban-Americans. And a few of those that voted nay had been congressmen and congresswomen who enthusiastically supported BLM and Antifa protests within the United States final summer season.
Four different legislators, three democrats and republican Thomas Massie of Kentucky, had been so torn about what is correct and fallacious, they did the politically expedient factor by voting “present.”
The decision handed on a 382-40 vote, with 4 fence-sitters voting “present.”
The decision didn’t have an effect on United States coverage towards the island nation.
It merely expressed solidarity with Cuban residents demonstrating peacefully for elementary freedoms, condemning the Cuban regime’s acts of repression, and calling for the quick launch of imprisoned Cuban residents.
You ought to know that no matter Wednesday’s vote in Washington, Cubans on the island — college students, artists, peasants, younger and previous alike — are making ready a nationwide anti-communist demonstration for November 15.
The Cuban authorities, headed by Fidel and Raul Castro mentee Migual Diaz Canel, has threatened, arrested, overwhelmed and imprisoned organizers prematurely of the deliberate protest.
