posted by Hannity Staff - 7.15.21

The Black Lives Matter organization released an official statement on social media this week regarding the pro-democracy protests sweeping Cuba; blaming the US and praising the Communist regime in the aftermath of the demonstrations.

“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.

CRASH AND BERN: Biden Opens Up 50 POINT LEAD in Florida After Bernie’s Pro-Castro Remarks

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.06.20

Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden opened up an impressive lead over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in Florida this week; with recent polls showing a near 50-point advantage for the former Vice President.

“Florida […] looks like it could be a near-catastrophe for Sanders. A poll from St. Pete Polls released Thursday morning gave Biden an enormous advantage of almost 50 points. In 2016, Sanders lost Florida to eventual nominee Hilary Clinton by more than 30 points,” reports The Hill.

Another survey has Biden at 61% in the Sunshine State, followed by Sanders at just 12%.

Pollsters blame Sanders’ poor performance on his recent comments praising Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

Sanders stunned viewers across the country last month when he publicly praised Cuban dictator Fidel Castro; saying he implemented a “massive literacy program” in the island-nation once he “came into office.”

Sanders was speaking with 60 Minutes’ Anderson Cooper when he was asked if he stood-by comments he made years earlier praising the socialist revolutionary.

“He educated their kids, gave them healthcare, totally transformed the society,” said Sanders decades ago.

“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba. But you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad! 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?” Sanders asked Cooper.

Watch Sanders’ stunning comments above.
