Americans can learn a lot from these Cuban exiles.

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!”

Amen!

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.

UNBELIEVABLE…, AGAIN!!!

Here…, again…, we see an individual committing a heinous crime, who should not have even be walking around free among us.

According to Gene Saladna, of WFTV.com Orlando and Sarah Wilson, of WFTV.com Orlando, “He’s pure evil: Man with 230 prior felony charges, 2 others arrested on charges related to killing of 3 friends prior to fishing trip in Polk County.”

230 prior felony charges!!!

aflorida 8

And how many other charges did he have that didn’t rise to the level of being felonies?

It’s actually beyond comprehension.

“POLK COUNTY, Fla. — Three people have been arrested on charges related to the killing of three friends who met up for a fishing trip in Polk County last week, Sheriff Grady Judd announced Wednesday.”

aflorida 1

“Judd said Tony ‘TJ’ Wiggins, 26, and his girlfriend, Mary Whittemore, 27, and Tony’s brother, William ‘Robert’ Wiggins, 21, were all arrested this week on charges related to the deaths of 23-year-old Damion Tillman, 30-year-old Keven Springfield and 27-year-old Brandon Rollins.”

“Tony, who Judd said has 230 felony criminal charges in his arrest history dating back to age 12, is charged with first degree murder, tampering with evidence, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of ammunition by a convicted felon.”

‘“He’s a thug. He’s a criminal. He’s pure evil in the flesh,’ Judd said. ‘He’s wild and he’s out of control.’”

And he was allowed to be out here in society to prey on some other, poor, unsuspecting, individuals.

That is the real crime here.

“Judd said Tony has 15 felony convictions on his record and has served two sentences in state prison.”

“Deputies said Robert [Tony’s brother] is charged with tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact of capital felony, and Whittemore Tony’s girlfriend] is charged with accessory after the fact of capital felony.”

“Judd detailed the timeline of what happened on Friday night that led to the massacre near a lake in rural Frostproof. He said Tillman stopped at a Dollar General on his way to meet his friends, where security camera footage captured him have a brief conversation with Tony.”

“Judd said Tillman mentioned to the cashier that he was meeting his friend Kevin to go fishing. Ten minutes later, Judd said Tillman and his two friends were all shot and dying.”

“Judd said Tony, Robert and Whittemore all lived off the grid in a rural area near Frostproof and Lake Wales.”

“Judd previously described the scene of the attack as ‘about as far out in the woods as you can get.’ In 2018, the city of Frostproof recorded only 3,273 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.”

“It has shaken Frostproof to its very core,” Judd said.

‘“We’ve got to bring these people to justice,’ Judd said.”

It seems he has been “brought to justice” many times before.  How did that work out for everybody?

I heard he is being held without bail.

Well, thank you very much.

So, 230 felonies were enough to realize he shouldn’t be running around amongst other law-abiding citizens, huh?

You apparently can’t get anything past these people!

When are these prosecutors and judges going to start being held accountable for their actions?

If you [the judges and prosecutors] don’t want to do your jobs protecting citizens, just let us know and we’ll go back to the wild west days and start dispensing our own “justice.”

Stories like this show what makes America great!

According to Alexandra Deabler of Fox News, “A Florida restaurant was left stunned by one diner’s generosity.  A regular at Skillets diner in North Naples left behind a $10,000 tip in a bid to help restaurant staff get through the current coronavirus outbreak, which has forced eateries to close dining room service and lose out on wages.”

A $10,000 tip!

“The owner of the restaurant, Ross Edlund, told WFLA that the customer, who chose to stay anonymous, explained, ‘I want each person in this restaurant to get 500 dollars.’”

And they want to remain anonymous.

“The manager distributed the money to the 20 employees, Edlund said.”

“Of the current measures Florida is taking to flatten the curve of the coronavirus outbreak, such as closing restaurant dining rooms and bars, Edlund says he supports them.”

“According to Naples Daily News, Edlund estimates he had to lay off 90 percent of his staff as restaurants have been forced to close, and residents are asked to stay indoors and practice social distancing.”

‘“We believe that what is being done is the correct thing in spite of the fact it’s causing us hardship,’ he said.”

His business is going under, but he still supports what’s being done because he understands it’s for the best, considering the big picture.

“The restaurant industry has been hit particularly hard as the global pandemic grows across the United States.”

So here we see multiple examples of what makes America great…, some of the people we have in this country.

I say “some” because most Americans are very generous…, it’s just that there are those who are better at being generous with other people’s money as opposed to their own.

That being said…, we have gracious and generous customers and donors.

We have business owners who are able to somehow survive, but also see past their bottom lines.

We have customers who are considerate of others and willing to follow safety advisories, for everyone’s sake.

And we have employees and former employees doing the best they can, considering the situation.

There’s no whining.

There’s no crying.

There’s no finger pointing going on.

There’s only the recognition of what the situation is and the resolve to make the best of that situation.

Everyone chipping in whatever they can to help out.

That’s the American way.

That’s what makes America great.
