Cuba Protester Slams Bernie, AOC: ‘You Don’t See Americans Going to Cuba on a Raft!’
A child of Cuban refugees, who joined hundreds outside the White House on Saturday to demand President Joe Biden aid protesters there, condemned Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for their favorable stances on socialism.
“It doesn’t work,” Barbara, the daughter of Cuban refugees, told Breitbart News about communism. That is why “we don’t want it in this country, and that is why we are fighting. It’s not a ‘Cuban people’ problem. This is a problem for everyone in this country, for everyone that can easily be affected by communism. Latin America, South America, you do not want this.”
She explained the reason her husband came to the United States from Cuba is because there are no basic rights on the island. Barbara said, being in the U.S., “we take it for granted.”
“It scared me when you have people on the left, here, saying how perfect [communism] is. How you have the Bernie Sanders, AOCs try to implement those stupid laws like [they] have in [Cuba]; that’s why we’re here,” she said. “You don’t see Americans going to Cuba on a raft!”
“I can’t even believe we’re in a situation that we’re so close to communism in this country. It’s sad. It’s really, really sad. … All these people around the world, it’s not just here in Washington; it’s not in Miami,” she explained.
“The entire world is protesting. Somebody needs to wake up. Somebody needs to do something. It’s too much, and nothing’s being done. And it needs to stop because it’s just like a cancer. It just grows and grows, and then [there’s] no stopping it. And we need to stop communism now, and I think if we stop it now in this country, it will be a different world,” Barbara said.
Additionally, she said everyone should do their own research on Cuba and its bloody history since 1959, when Fidel Castro seized the island. She posed the question: “If communism is so great, wouldn’t it sustain itself?”

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent.
