Congressman Dan Crenshaw called-out his progressive colleagues over the weekend for “flirting with socialism”, saying the toxic ideology “must be destroyed forever.”
“It is time that our fellow politicians stop flirting with socialism. Socialism must be sent to the ash heap of history. Socialism must be destroyed forever.”

Members of the so-called ‘Squad’ publicly blamed the United States for the ongoing humanitarian disaster in Cuba earlier this month; refusing to harshly condemn the country’s brutal communist regime.
“One of the things that we want to communicate is our solidarity with the Cuban people. It’s important for us to communicate as well is the actions, and US contributions, to the suffering of Cubans on the island as well,” said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“That’s directly related to the embargo… The US embargo, like other US policies, particularly other US policies targeting Latin Americans and Latinos, the cruelty is the point!” she added. “I outright reject the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo.
“All people have the right to protest and to live in a democratic society. I call on the Cuban government to respect opposition rights and refrain from violence. It’s also long past time to end the unilateral U.S. embargo on Cuba, which has only hurt, not helped, the Cuban people,” posted Senator Bernie Sanders on Twitter.

“Black lives matter condemns the US federal government’s inhumane treatment of Cubans, and urges it to immediately lift the economic embargo,” posted the group.
“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,” it added. “Cuba has historically demonstrated solidarity with oppressed peoples of African descent.”
“This embargo is a blatant human rights violation and it must come to an end,” concluded BLM.

BERNIE’S BAD RECORD: Sanders Has a Long, Documented History of Praising Communist Cuba
Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders clammed-up this week as pro-democracy protests swept Cuba; publicly blaming the US embargo for the ongoing plight of the local citizens.
All people have the right to protest and to live in a democratic society. I call on the Cuban government to respect opposition rights and refrain from violence. It’s also long past time to end the unilateral U.S. embargo on Cuba, which has only hurt, not helped, the Cuban people.

Sadly for Sanders, the self-described ‘Democrat Socialist’ has a long, recorded history of praising the Castro Regime.
Here are just a few examples:
“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but, you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad,” Sanders said in a “60 Minutes” interview in 2020. “You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?”
“I remember, for some reason or another, being very excited when [former Cuban dictator] Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba,” he said, while speaking at the University of Vermont in 1986. “I was a kid … and it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people.”
“For the first time in my adult life, what I was seeing is the Democrats and Republicans … clearly that there really wasn’t a whole lot of difference between the two,” added Bernie when describing the presidential debate between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon.
