Notable far-left figures that did not weigh in on the matter by the time this report was filed included Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who was described in 2016 by Tom Perez, then-Chairman of the Democrat Party, as the “future” of the Democrat Party.
Sanders has repeatedly praised murderous communist dictators and regimes, including Cuba, as highlighted by Sanders’ political opposition:
On Sunday after a State Department official described the heroic Cuban protests against the tyrannical communist government as the people “expressing their right to peaceful assembly” to “express concern about rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortages,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) blasted her, firing, “Stop playing cover for communists and support the Cuban people. My god. Why is that so hard for you.”
Julie Chung, Acting Assistant Secretary for U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, tweeted, “Peaceful protests are growing in #Cuba as the Cuban people exercise their right to peaceful assembly to express concern about rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortages. We commend the numerous efforts of the Cuban people mobilizing donations to help neighbors in need.”
