Florida Democrat dings AOC for blaming Cuban unrest on USA: They're 'demanding freedom' from Communism

Voormalige Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, whose Florida Keys district flipped Republican when ex-Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez defeated her in 2020, vertel “Jou wêreld” there is one sole entity to blame for Cuban unrest and suppression of rights.

What we’re seeing in Kuba we haven’t seen in over 62 jare,” sy het gese, met verwysing na die 1959 overthrow of President Fulgencio Batista by Fidel Castro’s revolutionaries.

Cubans young and old are marching in the streets demanding freedom. The only government to blame here, the only culprit of what has been happening in Cubais the Cuban government which has been a dictatorship; a failed Communist regime which has violated human rights for decades.

Mucarsel-Powell said she like many other Miamians knows numerous people in the area who have fled the Cuban regime, as well as others who have family members on the island – only 90 miles south of Key West – whom Castro unjustly imprisoned.

They’re marching, demanding freedom and justice. It defeats the purpose. We have to be unified in this effort. It should not be political,” sy het gese.

Mucarsel-Powell praised her fellow South Florida lawmaker, Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar of Miami Beach, for calling on Democrats and Republicans to unite against Diaz-Canel’s regime and its treatment of civilians.

Maar, she also claimed that former President Donald Trump made the Cuban situation worse by “eensydig” – in a global pretext – take economic action against the island nation, which she suggested had failed because pressure against the regime will be insufficient without other partner nations’ ondersteuning.

We need to work multilaterally with our allies in Latin America, in Europe to put pressure on the regime. The dictatorship has to end,” sy het gese.

Gasheer Neil Cavuto however noted that former President James E. Carter tried to make a push for Cubans to seek asylum in the U.S. – and was instead subjected to Fidel Castropulling a fast oneby emptying the jails and assenting to aflotillaof unvetted individuals that caused trouble for South Florida.

Who is to say [Diaz-Canel] won’t pull a stunt like that?” vra hy.

This is a unique moment,” replied Mucarsel-Powell. “What we’re seeing is historic. That’s why there’s an opportunity to make a change.

Let’s not politicize this. Let’s come together. I agree with the comments that Maria had to make to me coming on. I think it’s great to hear that [Salazar] wants to work with the president. Let’s do that… Cubans are asking for our support,” sy het gese.

What we can’t do is blame anyone except the Communist regime that has been a failed government in Cuba.
