A child of Cuban refugees, who joined hundreds outside the White House on Saturday to demand President Joe Biden aid protesters in the island nation, told Breitbart News that those taking to the streets are enduring “unbearable” oppression.
“The Cuban people, we’re tired, they’re tired of the communist left, the suppression. The oppression that they have is unbearable, and nobody understands more than like the Cuban people, and that is why we fight so hard so that we don’t have communism into this country [sic],” the woman, Barbara, told Breitbart News. Barbara explained that her parents fled Cuba and, while she is an American, she felt the need to join the protests to support those in Cuba.
Barbara posed the question that, “if communism is so great, wouldn’t it sustain itself?” Many left-wing supporters of the communist Castro regime argue Cuba’s woes are due to the United States “embargo”
