Sixty years ago, Communists seized power in Cuba, and all private businesses and industries were nationalized, and the Cuban people have lived under Socialism ever since. Did the theft and redistribution of all wealth and property lead to prosperity and justice for the Cuban people? Many American Leftists would have you believe just that.
You guys, when I watched this video, my jaw dropped to the floor. It made me reflect upon countless examples over the past decade when cultural “leaders” have misled Americans on Cuba and Socialism and Communism. Examples of these leaders range from politicians to celebrities to professional athletes to mainstream media, to college and university professors, to a plethora of liberal educators in primary and secondary schools, and even to the top of the Vatican. The stories that these “leaders” have been telling us are lies. They’ve led many Americans to believe that Cuba is okay, that Socialism is okay, that Communism is okay. And it is so NOT okay.
This Obama-event from December 2014 immediately came to mind. It is appalling to think no one in the media ever challenged this move by Obama.
WASHINGTON — President Obama on Wednesday ordered the restoration of full diplomatic relations with Cuba and the opening of an embassy in Havana for the first time in more than a half-century as he vowed to “cut loose the shackles of the past” and sweep aside one of the last vestiges of the Cold War.
The surprise announcement came at the end of 18 months of secret talks that produced a prisoner swap negotiated with the help of Pope Francis and concluded by a telephone call between Mr. Obama and President Raúl Castro. The historic deal broke an enduring stalemate between two countries divided by just 90 miles of water but oceans of mistrust and hostility dating from the days of Theodore Roosevelt’s charge up San Juan Hill and the nuclear brinkmanship of the Cuban missile crisis.
“We will end an outdated approach that for decades has failed to advance our interests, and instead we will begin to normalize relations between our two countries,” Mr. Obama said in a nationally televised statement from the White House. The deal, he added, will “begin a new chapter among the nations of the Americas” and move beyond a “rigid policy that is rooted in events that took place before most of us were born.”
In doing so, Mr. Obama ventured into diplomatic territory where the last ten presidents refused to go, and Republicans, along with a senior Democrat, quickly characterized the rapprochement with the Castro family as appeasement of the hemisphere’s leading dictatorship.
Republican lawmakers made clear they would resist lifting the 54-year-old trade embargo.
The then President Obama outlined the steps the United States would take to “end an outdated approach” and begin to normalize relations with Cuba.
At the time, Senator Marco Rubio spoke out against this Obama, Pope Francis, Castro agreement: “This entire policy shift announced today is based on an illusion, on a lie, the lie and the illusion that more commerce and access to money and goods will translate to political freedom for the Cuban people,” said Senator Marco Rubio, a Republican from Florida and son of Cuban immigrants. “All this is going to do is give the Castro regime, which controls every aspect of Cuban life, the opportunity to manipulate these changes to perpetuate itself in power.”
Now, fast forward to 2020 and observe how many people in America believe that Socialism is better than Capitalism. And even more disturbing is that ultimately, Obama built this ideology, with the help of Pope Francis and friends.
Obama and his elitist Hollywood friends have been pandering their socialist ideals for years. It’s not a coincidence that Pope Francis, also a Socialist, so quickly befriended Obama when he became Pope in 2013. Add to that, Obama’s Common Core government-controlled education system, and we now have a generation of Americans, many of whom believe Socialism is the answer.
Barack Hussein Obama intended to change the U.S. fundamentally — it has never been more clear to me that he intended to transform the United States into a Socialist nation.
Thank God, he failed, and thank God Hillary lost in 2016. It is, for this reason, I wake up every day, grateful that Donald Trump is our President. President Trump is now destroying the Obama-Cuba legacy, still, we have a lot of indoctrinated ideological damage to undo throughout many levels of our society.
One might say that I’m overstating this a bit. Still, if it were not for the Socialist ideology planted on American soil by the Obama administration, Bernie Sanders would not be a thing today.
You guys, if you’re a teacher, if you have kids or grandkids, if you’re not a teacher, but you know a teacher, ask them to share this video. Ask your friends to share this video. It’s real, cold, hard, chilling, truth, and all Americans need to see it.
Once you see it, you’ll immediately understand why Kaepernick was kneeling on the field game after game, and why Jay-Z and Beyoncé sat showing no respect during the singing of our National Anthem before the 2020 Super Bowl.
Once you see the pattern of Socialist infiltration, it’s hard to unsee it. Democratic Socialism is a lie and the ideology of Socialism in America must be defeated. Ultimately, it will require an overhaul of the Obama-indoctrination system of Common Core to overcome this.
In the meantime, watch and share this video. Share it for all of us.
“Everything You’ve Ever Seen About Cuba Is A Lie.”
A special thanks to Turning Point USA for producing this quality piece of journalism and for sharing the truth. America is a better place because of Turning Point USA.
