Leftists will do anything that they can to keep other leftists from looking bad, won’t they? They’ll lie, they’ll cheat, they’ll “conveniently” not report all of the facts. They’ll do anything.
We expect that from leftists, and more and more Americans now acknowledge that this is what we’re getting from the mainstream media.
But we expect better from our government. And we should get better. But with Joe Biden and his cronies running Washington and the corrupt bureaucracies, we shouldn’t be surprised when they try to spin anything that might make leftists in the U.S. or overseas look bad.
So, I wasn’t surprised when I saw this. Sickened, yes. Surprised, no. Li Hai writes,
A State Department official was criticized for describing Sunday’s anti-government protest in Cuba as an assembly against COVID-19 cases, deaths, and medicine shortages.
“Peaceful protests are growing in #Cuba as the Cuban people exercise their right to peaceful assembly to express concern about rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortages,” Julie Chung, the Acting Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, wrote on Twitter Sunday.
One of the biggest anti-government demonstrations erupted in Cuba on Sunday. Thousands of protestors marched on Havana’s Malecon promenade and other cities, chanting “Freedom, Enough, and Unite.”
Video shows Cuban protestors were chanting “Liberty” on the street, according to The Post Millennial.
Republicans and conservatives widely criticized Chung’s statement.
What kind of immoral spin doctor do you have to be to try to say that people protesting because they are tired of being starved, tired of being arrested and tortured, and tired of being utterly controlled by their leftist government is, somehow, due to people being concerned about vaccine shortages?
Unbelievable (I want to use other choice words in that, too, but this is a family-friendly site).
How stupid does Biden’s State Department think that we are? Answer: Apparently, they think that Americans are pretty darn stupid.
