In a statement released Wednesday night, Black Lives Matter threw its support behind the Cuban government in its battle to maintain its communist control over its citizens. If there was ever doubt that BLM loves communism, this should end the conversation.
"The people of Cuba are being punished by the U.S. government because the country has maintained its commitment to sovereignty and self-determination," BLM writes in its rich statement. "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."
Let's not forget that this is the organization that so many American companies have thrown their support behind. Like the NBA. MLB. Let's also remember that MLB put 'BLM' on mounds around the league. On Opening Day! Yes, the same league where some employees have risked their lives to escape the communist regime and here we are with BLM now throwing it's full support behind Cuban leadership and chastising the U.S. government.
Rob Manfred deserves this pretzel being served up by these idiots.
"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 in #Cuba," Marco Rubio tweeted.
Of course Marco's talking about one BLM co-founder who went out and bought four houses. Expensive houses.
"It has brutalized & denied freedom to generations of Cubans, and forced my family & so many others to flee," Sen. Ted Cruz said of the Cuban Communist Party. "The American people stand squarely with the men & women of Cuba and their noble fight for liberty."
Now we sit back to see how many BLM members will seek asylum in Cuba where they can live under the control of their heroes. Or maybe seek dual-citizenship so they can fight for justice here and then winter in Cuba where they can bask in the greatness that is socialism.
