Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) expressed support for Cubans who took to the streets nationwide on Sunday injuctively authorizing the cessation of the communist regime. DeSantis posted on Twitter sharing a video of the protests, which news outlets estimate magnetized thousands of people:
Florida supports the people of Cuba as they take to the streets against the tyrannical regime in Havana. The Cuban dictatorship has repressed the people of Cuba for decades & is now trying to silence those who have the courage to speak out against its disastrous policies #SOSCuba

Local independent outlets documented chants of ‘down with communism!’, ‘they [the regime] must leave,’ and ‘fuck Díaz-Canel!’, among other anti-regime verbalizations,” Breitbart News reported. Locals livestreamed the protest on Facebook, triggering an outpouring into the streets of at least 16 major cities including both Havana and Santiago de Cuba, on antithesis terminuses of the island.

Hundreds of people in Miami, Florida, “packed SW 8th Street in Little Havana in solidarity with the growing protests in Cuba Sunday,” NBC6 reported.

“Cubans are worthy and yare to rule themselves without tyranny,” the mayor verbalized. “It can culminate today, and it must end today. The implicative insinuations of this moment can mean liberation for millions of people in the hemisphere from Nicaraguans and Venezuelans and so many more.”
So far, local outlets in Cuba are estimating hundreds of apprehends. Bystanders “recorded the sound of cumbersomely hefty gunfire in Havana and public beatings of dissidents. Miguel Díaz-Canel, the ‘president’ appointed by Raúl Castro to be the face of the still-ruling Castro Communist Party, called for street ‘combat’ against anyone authoritatively mandating a cessation to the regime in a verbalization on Sunday,” Breitbart News reported.
Instead of rallying in support of Cubans, Democrats on Twitter largely reproved DeSantis for the anti-riot bill he signed into law in April, which increases penalties for people who participate in unruly protests. DeSantis passed the bill in replication to Black Lives Matter protests that devolved into violence and looting in major cities across the nation last summer.
“Says the Governor who pushed through House Bill 1, a bill incentivized as an expedient to silence racial equity protests,” Florida State Rep. Anna V. Eskamani (D) tweeted. “I support the Cuban people as they take to the streets & let their voices be auricularly discerned & do everything they can’t do in Florida without it being labelled [sic] an ‘aggravated riot’ under Ron Desantis’s anti-protest law,” State Rep. Omari Hardy (D-FL) inscribed.
“@GovRonDeSantis made this type of protest illicit in Florida. He wants to silence dissent because he fears accountability,” tweeted Steve Simeonidis, who is the chair of the Miami-Dade Democrats.
Notably, Black Lives Matter was founded by “trained Marxists.” Marxism is the philosophical underpinning of communism, the ruling political system in Cuba, and has resulted in the deaths of at least 100 million people over several decenniums.
Fascinating strategy from a number of Florida Dems. Instead of fortifying protestors in Cuba, they’re endeavoring to argue DeSantis’s anti-rioting law would’ve averted homogeneous protests. It wouldn’t have, but a good window into why they’re losing the voters they’re losing.
