Top O’ the Briefing
Democrats Keep Getting Their Commie On
Happy Thursday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. More lemon, please.
Weird week so far here in Turkbidenstan, no?
For a good portion of my life, I was usually the craziest one in any given situation. I never hung out in any asylums or anything, but when around everyday folk it was easy to red-flag me as the one who was a little more touched than the rest of the crowd. Even when perusing the news of the day, I would feel that I was out of sync with the rest of the world, but that was on me.
Now, it’s on the world.
OK, maybe everyone hasn’t lost it, but a lot of people have. I can’t put it all on the people on the other side of the political aisle because we have a few crazies roaming around in our backyard too. But, yeesh, the Democrats have really gone Looney Tunes.
At the beginning of the week, we discussed the protests in Cuba and how they seemed to have exposed some of the more commie sympathies in the media. It’s easy to expect the worst from the media hacks. I do it every day and they never disappoint. I would like to think, however, that we’re not living in some McCarthy-esque nightmare where we have to constantly worry about the upper levels of government in this country being riddled with communists.
The people who are unfortunately in charge of this once-great country have had ample opportunity to condemn the commie regime in Cuba and voice full support for the American flag-waving freedom seekers.
The administration isn’t exactly opening its arms to any potential freedom seekers from Cuba.
Menendez may be disappointed by the Biden administration’s tone now. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who fled Cuba with his family in 1960, made a statement Tuesday evening and said that Cuban asylum seekers would be resettled in a third country even if they establish a fear of being persecuted. The same will happen to Haitian asylum seekers as the country sinks into chaos following the assassination of President Jovenel Moise. “The time is never right to attempt migration by sea,” Mayorkas said. “To those who risk their lives doing so, this risk is not worth taking. Allow me to be clear. If you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States.”
Cuban citizens waving American flags as a symbol of freedom while they oppose an oppressive regime will hear those words from a Biden administration official, while economic migrants, mainly from Central America, are pouring over our border in record numbers. The Biden administration has dismantled every policy that would require those migrants to seek refuge in a third country or remain in Mexico for the duration of their asylum claims. The Biden administration will send those seeking political asylum from Cuba to another country.
As far as we know, Sinaloa cartel members are allowed to stay here and hang out in California and my home state of Arizona. Not so much for any pesky freedom seekers who might want to flee communism.
There are two people in this administration who should never be allowed to speak in front of a camera: Joe Biden and the woman who is tasked with explaining him to the public, White House press secretary Jen Psaki.
Brain Cell Jen was given an opportunity on Wednesday to condemn communism and, darn it, she just couldn’t find the right words.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to condemn communism by name on Wednesday. A reporter asked her whether President Joe Biden considers opposition to communism to be the driving factor behind the protests and Cubans’ flight to the United States. Rather than acknowledging the evil oppression of Cuba’s communism, Psaki condemned the government’s “mismanagement.”
“Don’t we know that the reason people want to leave Cuba is because they don’t like communism?” a reporter asked. After some back-and-forth about mechanisms to enter the country, he repeated the question: “Do you think that people are leaving Cuba because they don’t like communism?”
“I think we’ve been pretty clear that we think people are leaving Cuba — leaving Cuba or protesting in the streets, as well — because they are opposed to the oppression, to the mismanagement of the government in the country. And we certainly support their right to protest,” Psaki replied.
Mismanagement, dontcha know.
Joe Stalin didn’t really deliberately starve millions of his own people, he merely misallocated food.
We could play the euphemism game with every dictatorial commie/fascist regime of the last hundred years and we would all know that we were being sarcastic.
The Democrats would think we were onto something.
Like all things having to do with this Biden charade, this is really embarrassing for the country. We went through this with The Lightbringer and the jihadis — he could never just say that the bad guys are bad. We’re seeing that now with Biden and Cuba. After a while, it’s easy to believe they won’t say that the bad guys are bad because they don’t really believe they are. Democrats have no problem faulting the United States for a host of ills. It would be nice if they could find something negative to say about the scum in charge of Cuba.
Instead, as we saw earlier in the week, the babbling moron occupying the Oval Office said that all the oppressed people in Cuba really want are COVID vaccines. The news from this administration reads like dystopian fiction that was written by someone on acid who lapped up everything his commie professors in college fed him.
Democrats can’t disparage communism because they’ve been inexorably moving to a full-on embrace of it for a long time now. They celebrate latter-day Soviets like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her far-left Squad. They won’t say anything bad because they don’t have anything bad to say.
Now if you ask them to condemn a Republican…
Everything Isn’t Awful
