The false scenario of Cuban-American residents protesting in Tampa and Miami strains credulity.
These protesters in America blame the poor living conditions of their Cuban countrymen on political repression, when it is due to their own political actions in the United States that have caused suffering of their countrymen.
While there are limited freedoms in Cuba, it is the economic deprivations that have caused the Cuban people such physical pain and frustrations, and not forms of political repression.
The Miami and Tampa protesters are the very ones who have supported the United States embargo of Cuba for over 60 plus years. They have repeatedly voted for Republicans and US Congressmen who promised to reinforce the embargo on their own people.
They voted for Mr. Trump in 2016 and in 2020 and applauded him as he imposed over 200 economic sanctions on Cuba.
It is these actions here that have caused the serious deprivation of food, medicines and vaccines in Cuba. Plus, they have also contributed to shortages of fuel and power outages due to the serious economic slowdown caused by America’s penalties.
It is the height of hypocrisy now for Cuban-Americans to claim that they care about their fellow Cubans.
