We all know why Cubans are protesting. The Cuban people are fighting for and demanding the end of their communist dictatorship.
But we are often told by the woke media, activists and politicians that socialist policies are morally superior to a capitalist system… so, Cubans protesting in the streets chanting, "we are not afraid" and "Cuba isn't yours" in front of the Communist Party Headquarters doesn't really fit the woke narrative.
Maybe that's why this state department official tried to spin these anti-communist protests to resemble something that better fits their current narrative.
Julie Chung, Acting Assistant Secretary for U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, just tried to pull the wool over our eyes and told us that the protests in Cuba are actually about the people's concern of "rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortages."
Riiight… that's what this is about.
Don't be fooled by all the video evidence and the tens of thousands of Cubans shouting out against the Communist Party and chanting in the streets, pleading for their freedom.
No, U.S. state officials want to keep you focused on what they want you to believe is the real problem people are facing– COVID cases and vaccine supply.
Twitter users commented on the absurd post, pointing out the fact that you can literally hear protesters calling for their freedom.
