Yes…, we can all learn from the Cuban exiles who fled to America, and more specifically to Hialeah, Florida.
Who would know better about the dangers of socialism and communism?
Some of our liberal friends might purport to know better…, but they don’t.
I probably really shouldn’t say that.
Because the liberals do know.
It’s just a sacrifice they are willing to have US all make in order for THEM to wield power.
Elina Shirazi of Fox News reports, “Florida’s top city for Cuban exiles goes to bat for GOP in 2020.”
“Everyone that flees communism comes to Hialeah,[Florida]” which is known as “Trump Town.”
“The city of Hialeah, outside Miami, is known for its Cuban American community of working families, tight incomes and friendships among neighbors — and as the election nears, many say they’re leaning strongly toward voting for President Trump.”
Vaya Presidente Trump! (Go President Trump!)
‘“Hard-working people, blue-collar workers, Cubans from different generations… come to live here. The grandmas, the fathers, the sons and daughters,’ said Lucy Pereda, who has made Hialeah her longtime home.”
“Many in Hialeah say they’re leaning strongly toward voting for President Trump.”
“Hialeah is home to a greater percentage of Cubans than any other city in the country, according to census data. People like Pereda made Hialeah their home after escaping communist regimes and dictatorships. They shaped what has become a reliably Republican city of over 230,000 that is over 96% Hispanic.”
‘“Everyone that flees communism comes to Hialeah. Hialeah is totally Republican as far as voting, and we are… one of the strongest Trump cities in the whole United States,’ Julio Martinez said.”
I’ve gotta visit this place!
“Current Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s campaign has sought to court Hispanic voters by beefing up Latino staff and launching more Spanish-language ads in Florida. He also has visited several cities in the state, including Kissimmee and Tampa. Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., have both visited Miami.”
Yes, he’s “courting” them, but they’ve all heard his BS before, and they know how that story ends.
“[President] Trump has leaned on a message that the Democratic Party was running on a socialist platform. University of Miami professor Michael Touchton acknowledged that socialism has been a turnoff for many Hispanic voters and a label the Democratic Party can’t shake within the community.”
‘“Republicans have successfully labeled Democrats as leaning towards socialism,’ Touchton said. ‘This reminds Cuban Americans and Venezuelan Americans of their exile and of their need to stand up to communist regimes in Latin America, which they don’t think a Biden administration will do because he’s a Democrat.’”
Excuse me, but republicans don’t have to label democrats as anything. The democrats freely admit they want to see socialism implemented in the United States. They have defined and labeled themselves.
‘“I came from Cuba about 14 years ago and I have lived in Hialeah for the last seven years. Hialeah is “Trump Town,’” said Fernando Godo. ‘It’s not Trump versus Biden. It is socialism versus capitalism, government control versus liberty. These are the kinds of things we are looking at.’”
Now there’s the line of the day, Mr. Godo!
“IT’S NOT TRUMP VERSUS BIDEN. IT IS SOCIALISM VERSUS CAPITALISM, GOVERNMENT CONTROL VERSUS LIBERTY!”
That’s what I’m sayin’!
‘“I am an ex-political prisoner. I’m a Cuban exile,’ said independent voter Emilio Izquierdo Jr. He said he came to America in 1980 on the Mariel boatlift, which brought thousands of Cubans to the U.S. ‘Democrats are going more to the left, and every time, the Republican was going more to the right.’”
Independent voter Emilio Izquierdo Jr. said Democrats and Republicans have been moving in opposite directions. (Elina Shirazi/Fox News)
“He said that while he viewed both parties as too partisan, he would rather wear the Trump 2020 hat. ‘Specifically, in this area. The Cuban Americans [who support] Democrats, they are confused, they like socialists. They were people recycled from Cuban communists. I don’t want socialist and communist. I got a bad, bad experience.’”
“Joe Biden, in my area, doesn’t have too many votes. He’s done even before the elections.”
Thank God for people like the people in Hialeah.
The lessons these Cubans have learned, and the lessons the Venezuelan people have learned, are lessons you don’t want to have to learn…, ever.
