(Patriot Insider) – Birds of a feather flock together and that’s exactly why the Marxist organization Black Lives Matter just issued a statement expressing their support for the equally Marxist Cuban regime that has been brutally oppressing Cubans for decades.
Not only is Black Lives Matter in support of the Communist Cuban regime but they’re blaming the US for the oppression of the Cuban people. Is anyone surprised? You definitely shouldn’t be.
Instead of condemning the Cuban regime, BLM contends that it’s actually all the United States’ fault and that it has been the US treating the Cuban people “inhumanely.” They also regurgitated the Democrats’ talking point that the Cuban peoples’ angst is really all about COVID-19 at its core.
Their absolute ignorance is truly astounding.
The official Black Lives Matter account has posted a statement reaffirming its support of Cuba’s communist regime just as mass anti-government protests are breaking out in the island. BLM also again expressed gratitude for Cuba giving asylum to convicted murderer Assata Shakur. pic.twitter.com/OCRYvfUMWc

The statement claims that “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.”
Ironically, it’s the exact same argument that the Marxist Cuban regime is making in their own defense.
Marxist BLM standing with Cuban Marxists. Naturally. https://t.co/PN7T2uJqpg

The statement goes on to say, “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.”
“Instead of international amity, respect, and goodwill, the U.S. government has only instigated suffering for the country’s 11 million people – of which 4 million are black and brown”, because, of course, we have to know the stats on Cuba’s ethnic demographics.
Apparently, BLM has completely missed all the images and videos of Cubans protesting the country’s Marxist regime while flying American flags.
Naturally, the ignorant statement issued by BLM was completely ripped apart on social media and rightfully so:
Disgusting! Despite the Cuban dictatorship’s murdering and beating of protestors (many of them Black), BLM’s statement on Cuba….condemns the US, praises the Castro regime, and makes no mention of the atrocities being committed by the dictatorship. #SOSCuba #PatriaYVida https://t.co/a9k64eYCcQ

Deplorable this organization has chosen to stand with the oppressive dictators who have murdered and enslaved innocent Cubans of all colors since 1959.

So how much of the American establishment last year went to bat for an organization that is quite predictably defending an oppressive communist regime?

"Cubans' right to choose their own government" has nothing to do with the government that is subject to the embargo.
Mozambique? A Marxist government that persecuted churches, plunged the country into a civil war & made a third of the population refugees? That Mozambique? https://t.co/xiUOLWVxcu

This is inane and whoever wrote it should have to read at least one real book about the Cold War (and not one by Howard Zinn). https://t.co/9OPXU46Y6c

Very revealing that these organizations are releasing statement openly parroting the anti-US talking points of the communist regime that the Cuban people are risking their lives protesting against. https://t.co/nthnZZPfXF

This is a really, *really* bad take. Supporting a dictatorship is the opposite of supporting "Cubans' right to choose their own government." https://t.co/bj9VCmMbzn

Where did the millions go that BLM collected in donations last year ? https://t.co/LyU96WvQiw

Assata Shakur is a an FBI Most Wanted Terrorist and cop killer.
The fact that BLM continues to support her should tell you all you need to know about this horrible organization. https://t.co/Wu0ceVVdc2

I’m shocked that the organization founded by trained Marxists has now released a statement in strong support of the genocidal Castro regime https://t.co/4FBPYNvpPy

BLM supports the communist regime in Cuba, surprising no one paying attention. https://t.co/IAddndkR8h

BLM has a problem with prisons. Cuba is an island-nation prison. https://t.co/aaTpGiwWhm

Ironically the Biden regime has announced that the US will not be accepting any refugees from Haiti or Cuba, even if they are genuinely in fear of persecution in their home countries.
Interestingly, BLM didn’t bother to mention that little detail in their statement.
STORY: People fleeing Cuba and Haiti by boat will not be allowed to enter the U.S., even if they demonstrate fear of being persecuted or tortured in their home countries, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas warned today.https://t.co/mMBYsNLMIc

Naturally, the Democrats don’t want any migrants here who actually love freedom and what the US stands for. They don’t want migrants to come here who want to assimilate and live the real American dream. They most certainly don’t want any refugees to arrive here with legitimate fears who are fleeing actual socialism and communism.
Migrants from around the world have essentially been invited to our southern border by the Usurper Joe Biden for the express purpose of forever changing the political demographics of the United States.
Providing refuge to Cubans fleeing the country’s Marxist regime would do nothing to further that agenda, therefore, no refugees from Cuba are allowed.
How transparent can the Biden regime possibly be?
