Over the weekend, thousands of Cubans took to the streets in rebellion against their tyrannical, communist leader.
Videos of the protests show Cuban citizens shouting “Libertad” and other pro-freedom slogans.
But the Biden administration -without evidence- spoke out to imply the outbursts had more to do with COVID-19 than anything else.
State Department official Julie Chung released a statement saying that Cubans were “expressing their right to peaceful assembly” to “express concern about rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortages.”
Rep. Dan Crenshaw fired back to say “Stop playing cover for communists and support the Cuban people. My god. Why is that so hard for you.”
Cuban officials – much like the Biden administration – have continued to downplay the growing unrest in the nation.
