BLM Blasts U.S., Takes Side Of Cuban Communist Regime

But of course they did. Notice that none of them are actually moving to Cuba, though

Black Lives Matter blames US, praises Cuban regime, social media erupts

Black Lives Matter faced fierce criticism late Wednesday after posting a statement that blasted the U.S. and praised Cuba’s government while the island was destabilized by historic protests and violent crackdowns.

The tweet blamed the U.S. embargo for the country’s instability and credited the Cuban government for historically granting “Black revolutionaries” asylum.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, was quick to rebuke the tweet.

“The extortionist ring known as the Black Lives Matter organization took a break today from shaking down corporations for millions & buying themselves mansions to share their support for the Communist regime in #Cuba,” Rubio tweeted.

Besides blaming the US for sanctions on Cuba (because, apparently, Cuba hasn’t been able to get goods from other nations), they posted

Cuba is being “punished by the U.S. government because the country has maintained its commitment to sovereignty and self-determination,” the statement read. The group said Cuba has been an ally with “oppressed peoples of African descent” and praised the country’s effort to protect “Black revolutionaries like Assata Shakur.”

(Shakur, also known as JoAnne Chesimard, was convicted of being an accomplice in the 1973 slaying of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster, who left behind a wife and 3-year-old son. Shakur later escaped prison and fled to Cuba, where former Cuban leader Fidel Castro granted her asylum.)

Anyone surprised they’re supporting Shakur? Anyone surprised BLM is supporting a brutal regime over the United States? Anyone surprised that no BLM big wig is renouncing their US citizenship and moving to Cuba (or other communist nation) for the system they profess to love?

The progressive wing of the Democrat Party — many of whom align themselves with BLM regarding policy — seem unsure on how to react to the protests, subsequent violent crackdowns and Internet blackouts.

Where are AOC and the rest of the Squad?

    Biden Shuts Out Cubans, Haitians Despite ‘De Facto Open-Border Policy’

    I wonder why…..Could it be that Cubans and Haitians VOTE OVERWHELMINGLY FOR REPUBLICANS?

    “We have the most extensive voter fraud organization in the history of the USA.” Joe Biden.

    Evergreen Headline: “BLM Gets It Wrong…Again”.

    Of course, when your rationale for existing – black suspects being shot in skewed numbers compared to others – anything that develops from that is unlikely to get any better.
