(AbsoluteNews.com) – Cubans are sick and tired of living under the oppressive thumb of the communist government and they’re taking to the streets to call for an end to it. President Joe Biden even called Communism “a universally failed system.” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) doesn’t seem to be on the same page as the president or Cuban people.
On July 15, AOC released a statement about the unrest in Cuba. She claimed that she stands in “solidarity” and condemned the “anti-democratic actions” by Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel. Had she stopped there, maybe she would have been okay, but, of course, she had to continue. The congresswoman blamed the US for the suffering on the island. She claimed the embargo on the communist government is “absurdly cruel” and said she “outright reject[s] the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo.”
We stand in solidarity with the Cuban people and condemn the suppression of the media, speech and protest.
We also call for an end to the U.S. embargo and additional Trump-era restrictions that are profoundly contributing to the suffering of Cubans. pic.twitter.com/Fw6Quv5TAN

Never once did she talk about communism and how it has destroyed the island’s economy. The US embargo against Cuba isn’t to blame for its troubles. The Cuban government wasn’t prevented from trading with other nations as a result of the embargo. America isn’t to blame for COVID-19 spreading throughout the country, the nation’s food shortages or any of its other problems.
AOC is just blaming the US because that’s what she does: attack America. It’s as unpatriotic as it is ridiculous.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
