Black Lives Matter has been accused of hypocrisy by ignoring the pleas for help from Cuba’s oppressed citizens — instead blaming the violent protests on US opposition to the communist “revolution.”
The protest group — founded by “trained Marxists” — released a statement that completely ignored the mass calls demanding “freedom” from the oppressive Cuban regime as well as widespread reports of police brutality and arrests.
Instead, it solely blamed the troubles on the US embargo, calling it a “cruel and inhumane policy” that was “instituted with the explicit intention of destabilizing the country and undermining Cubans’ right to choose their own government.”
“The people of Cuba are being punished by the U.S. government because the country has maintained its commitment to sovereignty and self-determination,” BLM said in the statement first given to a Politico reporter.
“United States leaders have tried to crush this revolution for decades,” the radical left-wing group complained.
The organization’s statement was widely criticized online.NurPhoto via
