One thing you have to say about communists is that they stick together. Cubans are demonstrating and yelling “freedom.” They are trying to force the communist dictators to abandon the government, But Julie Chung, acting assistant secretary for U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, lied about what the Cubans are demonstrating against. Chung says the Cubans are demonstrating the government’s dismal response to the COVID-19 crisis.
“Peaceful protests are growing in #Cuba as the Cuban people exercise their right to peaceful assembly to express concern about rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortages. We commend the numerous efforts of the Cuban people mobilizing donations to help neighbors in need.”

But, if you watch the videos of the demonstration, you will see that no one is talking about COVID, they are calling for freedom. So, why would the State Department want to cover up for the dictators and communists who run the island nation. For the same reason that snakes won’t bite a Democrat. Do you know why? Professional courtesy. They don’t want you to know our neighbor only 90 miles away wants to be free of communism just as the Biden administration wants to impose here.
More incredible images from earlier today of thousands of Cubans demanding “Libertad!” (Freedom!).

Chung’s inane statement caused severe backlash and now they have no chance to win Florida in the next election The large Cuban American contingent is very powerful. They can swing any statewide election and they are solidly behind the Republican party. This will just increase their resolve. That is bad news for the Democrats.
Alberto Miguel Fernandez, a retired U.S. diplomat who was born in Cuba, said:
“What a dull, lifeless, dumb tweet by #Biden @StateDept official. People in Cuba aren’t calling for COVID shots or medicine. They are calling for Freedom.”

Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-Fla.), who was born in Cuba, said, “The Biden Admin is totally deranged on #Cuba policy. This isn’t some pesky protest over COVID vaccines. This is about opposing a brutal communist regime, freeing political prisoners, and demanding free elections. If you can’t make that distinction, you are very bad at your job.”
While she did not respond to the criticism directly, she later followed up, “We stand by the Cuban people’s right for peaceful assembly. We call for calm and condemn any violence.”
The Cuban people, of course, do not have a right to “peacefully assemble” in their homeland.
