The masses are finally waking up and seeing the true motives of Black Lives Matter after the Marxist group sided with Cuba’s Communist government amid recent pro-democracy protests in the island nation.
Black Lives Matter (BLM) delivered a highly controversial statement which effectively saw them siding with the communist dictatorship in Cuba – blaming the American government for the decades long struggle the people of the nation have endured.
Republicans, however, were quick to counter the absurd claim by the so-called activist group, as now even long-time supporters of the group are second guessing their support for it.
BLM, in its statement, condemned the United States government for trying to “crush” the Cuban “Revolution” through its embargo, asserting that the policy inhibits Cubans’ ability to choose their own government:
“Black Lives Matter condemns the U.S. federal government’s inhumane treatment of Cubans, and urges it to immediately lift the economic embargo. This cruel and inhumane policy, instituted with the explicit intention of destabilizing the country and undermining Cubans’ right to choose their own government, is at the heart of Cuba’s current crisis. Since 1962, the United States has forced pain and suffering on the people of Cuba by cutting off food, medicine and supplies, costing the tiny island nation an estimated $130 billion.
Without that money, it is harder for Cuba to acquire medical equipment needed to develop its own COVID-19 vaccines and equipment for food production. This comes in spite of the country’s strong medical care and history of lending doctors and nurses to disasters around the world.
The people of Cuba are being punished by the U.S. government because the country has maintained its commitment to sovereignty and self-determination. United States leaders have tried to crush this Revolution for decades.”
Republican Senator Marco Rubio, a Cuban-American, responded, saying “The extortionist ring known as the Black Lives Matter organization took a break today from shaking down corporations for millions & buying themselves mansions to share their support for the Communist regime.”
During a Monday speech on the Senate floor, Rubio pointed out that the ultimate reason for Cuba’s economic suffering is its communist government.
Rubio questioned, “Why aren’t fishermen and farmers in Cuba allowed to fish or grow things and sell to people? It’s not the embargo that keeps them from doing that. It’s the regime. Why can’t Cubans own a small business? Why can’t a Cuban do in Cuba what they can do in Miami, what they can do in Washington, what they do in countries all over the world?”
“It’s no surprise that the Marxists of BLM are defending a murderous communist regime,” added Republican Sen. Tom Cotton.
Carlos Lopez-Cantera — the former Lieutenant Governor of Florida — added, “My Cuban grandmother (and most Cuban Grandmothers) had a saying. ‘Dime con quien andas, y te dire quien eres.’ Translation: Tell me who you go with and I’ll tell you who you are.”
“Here’s the Black Lives Matter org supporting the brutal & oppressive dictatorship in #Cuba,” commented Republican Sen. Josh Hawley.
Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik also pointed out that the Marxist organization, “not only supports defunding the police, but also supports an oppressive Communist regime.”
In reality though, it should come as no surprise who BLM is choosing to side with as the Cuban people fight for their freedom against a repressive communist regime given previous confessions made by the group’s leadership, such as co-founder Patrisse Cullors admitting that she and others involved in the movement are “trained Marxists.”
In 2016, BLM also tweeted out a message grieving the passing of brutal Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
