“Protesting Cuban and Bolivian diplomats shouted, chanted (“Cuba Si!-Bloqueo No!”) and banged their hands on desks at the United Nations on Tuesday to drown out the launch of a U.S. campaign on the plight of Cuban political prisoners…..“I have never in my life seen diplomats behave the way that the Cuban delegation did today. It was really shocking and disturbing…if the diplomats of this government (Cuba) behave this way, how do the police behave?"  U.S. envoy to the U.N. Economic and Social Council Kelley Currie told reporters.

"Holding the Cuban regime responsible for its human rights violations and supporting the Cuban people's aspirations to live in freedom are key components of President Trump's National Security Presidential Memorandum of 2017."

You see, amigos: under President Trump the UN (which we host and overwhelmingly fund) is being subject to an astounding and genuinely “revolutionary” development. To wit:

The U.S. delegation to the U.N. is finally using their platform to defend our country and to call out our worst enemies for their flagrant hypocrisy, kleptomania and history of crimes. 

As such, our U.N. delegation is finally lifting that international veil of respectability that covers the mass-murdering, mass-torturing, terror-sponsoring and kleptomaniacal Castro regime. Our U.N. delegation’s recent campaign to highlight Cuba’s jailing and torturing of dissident is aptly titled “jailed for what?” 

Nothing like this has ever been seen or heard at the U.N. -- (except WAY BACK under Reagan’s UN rep. Daniel Patrick Moynihan.)  Consequently Castro’s stunned and infuriated “diplomats” are simply losing it, as described above.  (Libertarian Castro regime benefactor Jeff Flake is probably losing it too.) 

So did Hillary Clinton’s and Maxine Waters’ and Eric Holder’s recent Democrat call to arms rub off their fellow leftists (i.e. communist apparatchiks) at the U.N.?  Recall:

 “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for.” (Hillary Clinton)

“Our plan should be when they (Republicans) go low, we kick them!”  (Eric Holder)

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” (Maxine Waters)

Or was the rubbing off the other way around? After all, the historic affinity of Democrat luminaries with the mass-murdering, mass-torturing, terror-sponsoring Castro regime has been well-documented:

“Fidel Castro first and foremost is and always has been a committed egalitarian. He wanted a system that provided the basic needs to all -- enough to eat, health care, adequate housing and education. Cuba has superb systems of health care and universal education. We greeted each other as old friends. ((Jimmy Carter, often hailed as “the Elder Statesman” of the Democrat Party.)

Now here’s the late Democratic senator and presidential candidate George McGovern also known as “The Conscience” of the Democratic Party: “Fidel Castro is very shy and sensitive, I frankly like him and regard him as a friend.”

Now here’s Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio: “I also think it’s well known that there’s some good things that happened (in Cuba) -- for example, in health care.”

Now over to Democratic presidential candidate Jesse Jackson: “Viva Fidel!—Viva Che! Long live our cry of freedom!”

“In 1959 everybody was totally convinced that Fidel Castro was the worst guy in the world and all of the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro…They forgot that he educated their kids, gave their kids healthcare, totally transformed the society…..So they expected this tremendous uprising in Cuba, but it never came.” -Bernie Sanders.

“The countries like Cuba or Canada or Russia or a lot of places in this world spend half what we spend per capita and they got better health outcomes than we do,” (deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee Rep. Keith Ellison.) 

And that affinity, by the way, has been amply reciprocated:

"We'd better hope Kennedy wins this election," Fidel Castro confided to a subaltern in 1960. "If Nixon wins our revolution won't last." The Bay of Pigs and Missile Crisis betrayals (of free Cubans) vindicated Castro's foresight a thousand times over.

"Jesse Jackson is a great personality, a brilliant man with a great talent, capable of communicating with people, very persuasive, reliable, honest. Jackson's main characteristic is honesty. He is sincere and there is not a single bit of demagoguery in his conversations." (Fidel Castro)

“Hillary Clinton is our only hope of detaining barbarism!... In any nation of the world–and even in the U.S. during normal times–Donald Trump would be in prison or in a mental institution! “(Cuba’s media endorsing Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential campaign.)

Given his sharp business sense and clear-eyed patriotism, it’s small wonder President Trump never fell for the liberal/libertarian/Farm-lobby/Castroite scam about how “ending the embargo” ” (i.e. showering the Castro Family-Crime-Syndicate with  U.S. taxpayer dollars) would—VOILA!-- magically transform Cuba into a Caribbean Singapore.
