In the case of the political unrest in Cuba, it solely took one Twitter put up for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to again up the explanation he’s being checked out so severely as a possible nominee for president.
And it solely took one put up for President Joe Biden’s administration to exhibit it’s much more cynical and inept than the mainstream media will ever admit.
However the American individuals are going to see the distinction between the 2.
DeSantis — governor of a state with thousands and thousands of Cuban immigrants, their households and their descendants — made no bones about his authorities’s backing for the throngs of Cubans who stormed by means of the nation’s capital and different cities Sunday demanding an finish to the communist dictatorship that has dominated the island for greater than six many years.
Florida helps the folks of Cuba as they take to the streets in opposition to the tyrannical regime in Havana.

“Florida helps the folks of Cuba as they take to the streets in opposition to the tyrannical regime in Havana,” DeSantis wrote in a tweet revealed Sunday night. “The Cuban dictatorship has repressed the folks of Cuba for many years & is now attempting to silence those that have the braveness to talk out in opposition to its disastrous insurance policies.”
That’s the form of assertion that ought to come routinely to any American politician — no matter occasion affiliation. The Cuban dictatorship has been a reality of life for many years solely 90 miles from American shores. However up to date Democrats stay willfully blind to that actuality.
And up to date Democrats, to the nation’s disgrace in the mean time, are in command of American overseas coverage. Which is how the nation can see nonsense like at Twitter put up revealed Sunday by a Biden State Division functionary that blamed the unrest completely on worsening situations from the coronavirus pandemic.
The truth that it was revealed solely 5 minutes earlier than DeSantis’ stirring name for freedom may need been simply an sad coincidence, however there’s no denying that DeSantis’ put up put Biden to disgrace.
Peaceable protests are rising in #Cuba because the Cuban folks train their proper to peaceable meeting to precise concern about rising COVID circumstances/deaths & medication shortages. We commend the quite a few efforts of the Cuban folks mobilizing donations to assist neighbors in want.

“Peaceable protests are rising in #Cuba because the Cuban folks train their proper to peaceable meeting to precise concern about rising COVID circumstances/deaths & medication shortages,” the State Division’s assistant secretary for the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs.
“We commend the quite a few efforts of the Cuban folks mobilizing donations to assist neighbors in want.”
The cynicism of attempting to elucidate a political eruption by means of the coronavirus pandemic that put Biden into workplace is nearly painful. The ineptitude of a supposedly skilled overseas service trass to go off self-evident twaddle as the reality is shameful.
Even CNN didn’t body the Cuban protests like that, with a headline declaring, “Cubans take to streets in uncommon protests over lack of freedoms and worsening economic system.”
“Demonstrators complained a couple of lack of freedom and the worsening financial state of affairs through the uncommon protests, in accordance with individuals who spoke to CNN and movies from a number of cities, together with capital Havana,” CNN reported.
“Many chanted for ‘freedom’ and referred to as for President Miguel Díaz-Canel to step down.
The coronavirus wasn’t even talked about till the tenth paragraph, which famous that, “In a number of the movies, folks shouted they ‘weren’t afraid’ or that they needed liberty or entry to coronavirus vaccines.”
Not a phrase about “mobilizing donations to assist neighbors in want.”
The truth is, as a press release of ludicrously apparent obfuscation, the State Division’s tweet could be staggering, if Democrats didn’t have already got a well-established sample of distorting actuality.
That is the occasion that championed as “largely peaceable” protests the riots that tore a swath of destruction by means of too many American cities final yr. It’s the occasion that harps on the imaginary evil of “systemic racism” to elucidate the common failures of its insurance policies in areas of the nation which were beneath its management for many years.
And it’s the occasion of a doddering, nearly definitely corrupt Joe Biden within the Oval Workplace, a person whose son is a world-class grifter whose pretensions to a creative profession have simply turn out to be a really well-publicized approach for “nameless” artwork lovers to pony up cash to indicate their assist. Mafia households couldn’t do it higher.
Actually nothing about this White Home or the Democratic Social gathering that gained it may be taken as an sincere evaluation of the state of affairs. So a Twitter put up describing the fad of a inhabitants oppressed by dictatorship chanting “freedom” within the streets as a coordinated show of discontent with COVID-19 restrictions is nearly to be anticipated.
(The cloying line about livid Cubans “mobilizing donations to assist neighbors in want” is nearly off the dimensions, although.)
DeSantis wasn’t the one Republican politician to lash out, after all. Reliable conservative voices like Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida (the son of Cuban immigrants), and Sen. Ted Cruz (the son of a Cuban immigrant father and American mom) additionally chimed in.
However DeSantis is the governing govt within the American state that’s primarily the entrance line within the nation’s faceoff with Cuba’s communist dictatorship. He’s additionally some of the talked-about names within the early chatter in regards to the 2024 presidential race.
Do you assume DeSantis will run for president in 2024?
Sure: 77% (1035 Votes)
No: 23% (304 Votes)
The truth that he weighed in so early, and with such readability of function, is sufficient to make respectable Individuals notice how weak the person who’s within the White Home now actually is.
Presumably understanding simply how pathetic the administration response regarded on Sunday, Biden himself issued a press release Monday, in accordance with NBC News.
It nonetheless featured the coronavirus in a featured position, however allowed as how “many years of repression” beneath an “authoritarian regime” may need one thing to do with it.
“We stand with the Cuban folks and their clarion name for freedom and reduction from the tragic grip of the pandemic and from the many years of repression and financial struggling to which they’ve been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime,” the assertion stated, in accordance with NBC.
“The USA calls on the Cuban regime to listen to their folks and serve their wants at this important second slightly than enriching themselves,” he added.
That’s a fairly skinny gruel from the person who’s presupposed to be the chief of the free world.
However coming as he does, from a political occasion that’s lurching increasingly leftward, with main figures openly sympathetic to the evils of socialist rule — it’s sadly to be anticipated. The truth that Biden served as vp within the Obama administration that primarily normalized relations with Cuba’s communists earlier than President Donald Trump restored sanity to the nation’s Cuban coverage makes all of it however inevitable.
Individuals count on extra from their presidents — not less than Individuals who take their nation’s position on this planet severely do.
And DeSantis’ put up was a superb instance of simply what that “extra” seems like — readability, decision, and a dedication to freedom that was once the calling playing cards of American leaders, and can, God keen, be once more earlier than too lengthy.
It put the Biden administration’s put up to disgrace, after all. However solely 5 minutes earlier, the administration introduced the disgrace upon itself.
