Rick Scott: Joe Biden is Appeasing Cuba’s Communist Government

Last week, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., weighed in after reports and videos surfaced showing brutal repression and persecution ordered by the Castro and Díaz-Canel regime against peaceful protesters in Cuba, who took to the streets once again to demand freedom and “Patria y Vida.”

According to the senator’s office, “Scott strongly condemns the Biden administration’s appeasement of the illegitimate communist Cuban regime and other brutal dictators” and “continues to fight every day to hold the illegitimate communist Cuban regime accountable, restore internet access on the island, demand the release of democracy activists and support the cause of freedom and democracy in Cuba and across Latin America.”

“Once again, the people of Cuba took to the streets calling for freedom, democracy and ‘Patria y Vida,’ and the illegitimate communist Cuban regime met their cries with brutal oppression, persecution and torture. Even in the face of this disgusting assault on human rights, the Cuban people are not afraid, and brave democracy activists are willing to give everything, even their lives, to reclaim their freedom,” Scott said.

“It’s time for the United States to recognize their bravery and for Joe Biden to stop his weak appeasement that only enables this brutal regime. The United States must be a leader in the defense of human rights, democracy and freedom in our Hemisphere. I won’t stop fighting and being a voice for the Cuban people until the Castro/Díaz-Canel regime is held accountable, and we see a new day of hope, freedom, and ‘Patria y Vida’ in Cuba,” Scott added.
