Demonstrators in Cuba RISE UP to protest communist regime

Demonstrators in Cuba have been taking to the streets in recent days to protest deteriorating conditions under the prevailing communist regime, with worsening economic conditions reportedly serving as a driving force behind the uprising, as Fox News reports

The size and forcefulness of the protests were, according to the New York Times, “widely viewed as astonishing,” given the the island nation’s history of brutally quashing dissent, with the outlet adding, “Activists and analysts called it the first time that so many people had openly protested against the Communist government” since 1994, when a massive wave of Cubans ultimately fled the country via the sea.

Amid shouts of “The people are dying of hunger” and “We want freedom,” Cubans boldly and vocally demanded the end of communist rule and declared, “We are not afraid,” according to Alexandre Krauss, senior advisor to the European Union Parliament.

It was not long before Republican lawmakers pointed to the demonstrations in Cuba as support for the proposition that socialism fails everywhere it is tried, regardless of what far-left Democrats would have voters believe.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), himself of Cuban descent, declared on Twitter, “Protests in Cuba aren’t simply about ‘shortages.’ Socialism promises guaranteed food, medicine & income if you give up your freedom. When, as always, it fails to deliver you don’t get your freedom back.”

Rubio’s Senate colleague Ted Cruz (R-TX), whose family also fled from the oppressive dictatorship took an equally strong stance on the subject, saying, “The Cuban people have fought against the tyranny of the Communist regime for decades, and have taken to the streets demanding liberty. This regime has brutalized and denied freedom to generations of Cubans, forcing many including my family to flee or be murdered.”

For his part and after many hours of delay, President Joe Biden issued a statement acknowledging the pleas of the protestors, saying, “The Cuban people are bravely asserting fundamental and universal rights. Those rights, including the right of peaceful protest and the right to freely determine their own future, must be respected,” according to The Hill.

While Republicans and even the president himself extended words of support and encouragement to freedom-seeking Cubans, far-left Democrats such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) have remained silent on the subject, perhaps suspecting that this inspiring wave of pro-democracy action in Cuba likely bodes ill for their own attempts to bring socialism to our shores.
