That’s her story and she’s sticking to it.
Socialism superfan Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continues to blame the USA for the ongoing problems in Cuba. She insists that the U.S. embargo is the cause of all the suffering…
The communist dictatorship? Not so much.
“The embargo, the U.S. embargo, is absurdly cruel, and like other U.S. policies, particularly other U.S. policies targeting Latin Americans and Latinos, the cruelty is the point,” she said. “And I outright reject the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo, where they say or they have said that they wanted to maintain the bar, the embargo, as it is a source of leverage and pressure, there is no way where it is acceptable for us to use cruelty as a, as a point of leverage against every day people, period. Whether it’s our border, or whether it’s the U.S. embargo on Cuba, the cruelty is the point.”
Last week, after staying silent on the Cuban protests for 6 days, AOC fired her first shot at the U.S. with the following statement.
“We also must name the U.S. contribution to Cuban suffering: our sixty-year-old embargo. Last month, once again, the U.N. voted overwhelmingly to call on the United States to lift its embargo on Cuba. The embargo is absurdly cruel and, like too many other U.S. policies targeting Latin Americans, the cruelty is the point. I outright reject the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo. It is never acceptable for us to use cruelty as a point of leverage against everyday people.”
