The Morning Report - 7/15/21

Good morning kids. Thursday and the protests and unrest in Cuba remain at the top of the heap. Whether or not these flames will coalesce into a firestorm of an actual uprising that potentially topples a criminal, oppressive regime remains to be seen. Tragically ironic is the fact that we the people in a land that was once founded on We The People face the exact same existential threat to our lives and liberty that snuffed out a free Cuba 62 years ago. Along with the geographic proximity of a mere 90 miles of blue Caribbean (which has run red with the blood of desperate people trying to escape that tropical gulag) separating us, Cuba and America share a close, intertwined history.

With the seemingly final overthrow of America that culminated with the false flag "riot" on January 6th, 2021 by our institutional leftists as Cubans struggle to break away from its kissing cousins in Havana, we are perhaps converging into a singularity of events that will have meaning and repercussions here there, and elsewhere around the world.

They can be seen and heard on YouTube and social media, chanting "Liberty," "Down with the dictatorship" and "Down with communism." And they can also be heard shouting a challenge to their rulers: "We are not afraid." That chant is a taunt, a war cry, a rebel yell. And it is coming mostly from young Cubans, the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the so-called revolution.

You have to live in a place like Cuba -- where an inordinate percentage of the country's budget is dedicated to keeping Big Brother's eye fixed on you -- to appreciate the magnitude of the fearlessness and despair needed to loosen one's tongue out on the street.

The protests are among the most dramatic proof ever offered of the failure of a tropical dictatorship that has driven 20 percent of its people into exile. Innumerable promises for a brighter future have been made during this time by the military junta that has ruled Cuba since the days when cars had tailfins and the top songs in the US charts were Elvis Presley's "Jailhouse Rock" and Domenico Modugno's "Volare."

Well, surprise, surprise, the future is here, and the youngsters can clearly see that all of those promises have turned out to be lies. Now, those who were supposed to reap the benefits of decades of sacrifice, self-denial and unquestioning obedience demanded by Big Brother are out on the streets, shouting at their aging masters -- and the world -- that they are tired of living a lie.

But why now? A perfect storm of calamities caused this sudden eruption of fearless dissent. Lately, life in Cuba has become more unbearable than ever for just about every Cuban, except those who rule the place. The crisis is due to a long string of blunders and catastrophes.

Emphasis mine above and for good reason. The odds of the junta - theirs not ours - being overthrown given the level of control are slim. While people have to be utterly desperate to lash out and take to the streets, the forces arrayed against them are massive. Look at Venezuela as an example; in slightly more than decade what was the jewel of Latin America devolved into a coprolite of Communist squalor. But the regime had the people by the neck and despite the muddled mess of its politics, Maduro and his goons still hold the whip hand. Yet, while Venezuelans fled across the borders to Colombia and elsewhere, Cuba is the Kolyma of Alcatrazes. They have nowhere to go and so that creates perhaps a much more volatile situation. Or it would if the United States of America still retained Donald Trump.

The problem is, the last thing the junta in DC - in power illegally due to a rigged election and a feckless non-response from those allegedly on our side who might have stopped it - wants to do is help liberate the Communists. Hell, Obama creamed his mom-jeans when he had the chance to stand shoulder to shoulder with Castro's butchers in front of that giant Che Guevara mural in Havana to salute "la revolucion." For those who have the same number of functioning brain cells as Biden and are wholly unaware, the Democrats have brought that cancer here and it is metastasizing. Look no further than your local classroom, Main Street, US military and even your own dinner table (G-d forbid) as proof.

Psaki-Psircling back, what's happening in Cuba could not come at a worse time for our overlords. Hence the abject - and I might add blessed - silence from the likes of Titty Caca Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sandersnista and all the others in the (death) "Squad" over what's happening. Naturally the line out of DC is that what's going on in Cuba is the fault of the Chinese COVID-19! Of course! How could it possibly be that it's the fault of that wonderful, tropical socialist paradise, the one which Michael "Tubby Riefenstahl" Moore claims has the best healthcare system on the planet which is totally free?! No one's buying that shit despite the junta's (again, our's not their's) attempts to shield socialism from the merest hint of aspersion. Meh, tell it to their armed militant terror wing at Burn-Loot-Murder Inc. who naturally can't keep their mouths shut.

"That statement comes after pro-democracy demonstrators waved American flags and protested for freedom over the weekend, which led the communist government to cut off internet access and crackdown on those yearning to be free.

"Black Lives Matter condemns the U.S. federal government's inhumane treatment of Cubans, and urges it to immediately lift the economic embargo," the group claimed. "This cruel and inhumane policy, instituted with the explicit intention of destabilizing the country and undermining Cubans' right to choose their own government, is at the heart of Cuba's current crisis. Since 1962, the United States has forced pain and suffering on the people of Cuba by cutting off food, medicine and supplies, costing the tiny island nation an estimated $130 billion."

"Without that money, it is harder for Cuba to acquire medical equipment needed to develop its own [Chinese] COVID-19 vaccines and equipment for food production. This comes in spite of the country's strong medical care and history of lending doctors and nurses to disasters around the world. . . "

". . . Cuba has historically demonstrated solidarity with oppressed peoples of African descent, from protecting black revolutionaries like Assata Shakur," the group said of one of the FBI's most wanted terrorists, "through granting her asylum, to supporting black liberation struggles in Angola, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau and South Africa. Now, we look to [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Biden to end the embargo, something Barack Obama called for in 2016. This embargo is a blatant human rights violation and it must come to an end."

I'll spare you the tedious, irksome, insipid boilerplate bullshit these filthy vermin spewed out. I noted yesterday in rather large letters for their blodshot, purple-drank, malt-liquored, Maui-wowied eyes to take in the words of their hero Che Guevara and his opinion of those with an abundance of melanin, which they believe makes them ubermenschen but that he felt otherwise. That said, this garbage is being forced down the throats and injected into the veins of our children. On top of that, apparently it will be accompanied by a chaser of Pfizer vaccines for those unwilling to voluntarily take it for the good of the volksgemeinschaft. More like a Folks get mind-fucked.

The cognitive dissonance of kids burning American flags here to establish a communist paradise in the former US while the citizens of their role model wave American flags desperately trying to get rid of communism has got to be off the charts. Can't see that, now can we. Which is why Alexander Mayorkas has sealed our borders from Cuban refugees. G-d forbid they get here and vote against Democrats and Socialists.

Meanwhile, as the desperate people of Cuba get beaten, silenced and chucked into jail, the same fate has befallen dozens of G-d-fearing, decent Americans for doing the same thing in DC last January 6th.

Cuba libre! America libre!
