Some Americans Are Standing Up For Cuba’s Communist Dictators

By Mike Huckabee

As brave pro-freedom protesters continue to rally in Cuba, some Americans are bravely standing up for Cuba’s communist dictators. For instance, it was noted that two years ago, the creator of the 1619 Project, who “don’t know much about history” (to quote the great Sam Cooke), proved she also don’t know much about anything else by praising the Cuban government for solving the problem of racism.

Nikole Hannah-Jones said, “If you want to see the most equal multi-racial democ--…It’s not a democracy — the most equal multi-racial country in our hemisphere, it would be Cuba.”

And she would be wrong (although kudos to her for actually recognizing that Cuba's not a democracy.) You’d think Cuba’s government would be colorblind and oppress all races equally, but even that isn’t true. As I noted this week, quoting an article at by Humberto Fontova, Cuba has imprisoned many more black political prisoners than apartheid-era South Africa and held them longer and under worse conditions than Nelson Mandela suffered.

Meanwhile, Black Lives Matter stirred outrage by praising Cuba’s communist government this week and blaming the US embargo for the Cuban people’s deprivations.

BLM tweeted that Cuba is being "punished by the U.S. government because the country has maintained its commitment to sovereignty and self-determination” and that Cuba has been an ally with "oppressed peoples of African descent" and protected "Black revolutionaries like Assata Shakur."

(Shakur, aka JoAnne Chesimard, was a convicted cop killer who escaped prison and fled to Cuba, where Fidel Castro granted her asylum as a thumb-in-the-eye to the US. In effect, she fled one prison for another.)

News flash to BLM: the Cuban people aren’t starving because the US won’t let them have food. They’re starving because communist systems always lead to decay, devolution and deprivation; and because, as the pro-freedom activists have made clear, if you’d bothered to listen to them, the dictators use food as a weapon, depriving people of it if they dare to protest. You know, like you’ve enriched yourselves by doing.

If you’re not like BLM or Ms. Jones and you want to know what’s really been going on in Cuba for a long time, how it led to this point, and how this uprising by the people against their oppressors has other would-be socialist tyrants with dreams of keeping the masses in line terrified, check out this MUST-READ article by Austin Bay…

And this one by Antonio García Martínez, who delivers the shocking news to liberals who visited Cuba under Obama that they were duped by a fantasy and kept in “a Potemkin Air BnB” that bore no relation to the harsh reality of the lives of Cubans under a communist dictatorship. But then, American “progressives” must be used to living in reality-denying fantasy bubbles by now.

Left Behind

By Mike Huckabee

Democrats have been so busy mindlessly charging to the left that they didn’t notice how they’ve passed by and left behind a whole lot of minority voters who aren’t interested in going over the cliff with them.
