After 54 years of foreign policy aimed at controlling the influence of Communist in the Western hemisphere, the Obama regime has softened on the communist regime that holds the island prisoner and have returned to Havana to reopen the U.S. embassy that was forced closed 54 years ago.
Every U.S. president since Kennedy has maintained a firm policy of economic leverage against the despotic Castro regime that tortures, kills and suppresses the rights of the Cuban people. However, Obama, in a quest to secure a lasting legacy of appeasement for tyrants, has thawed relations with the Castro regime.
On Friday, Secretary of State John Kerry attended the shameful flag-raising ceremony in Havana as the Star ‘n’ Stripes was hoisted above the newly reopened U.S. embassy- a symbolic betrayal of America’s economic system and the millions who have suffered because of the community dictatorship.
However, as despicable as this ceremony was, the ritual yielded a telling illustration into the world view of John Kerry and Obama’s State Department as Kerry claimed that he felt “very much at home here.”
Kerry stated, (emphasis added)
“Thank you for joining us at this truly historic moment, as we prepare to raise the United States flag here at our embassy in Havana, symbolizing the re-establishment of diplomatic relations after 54 years. This is also the first time that a United States secretary of state has been to Cuba since 1945. This morning, I feel very much at home here, and I’m grateful to those who have come to share in this ceremony who are standing around outside of our facilities. And I feel at home here because this is truly a memorable occasion, a day for pushing aside old barriers and exploring new possibilities.”
To clarify: the far-left Secretary of State claimed that he felt “very much at home” in a communist regime with a long history of oppression and redistributive economic policy.
Further, those “old barriers” that Kerry claims we should “push aside” include the murder, torture and imprisonment of countless Cubans who longed for freedom and the Cuban Missile Crisis which brought the U.S. dangerously close to nuclear annihilation.
But other than Communist oppression and the attempt to facilitate a nuclear holocaust, the Castro regime has been just lovely…
