Why is Cruz not calling for all of them to be released? Or is the United States exempt from the moral standard it sets for the rest of the world?
Cruz is also a member of a political party which aggressively works to disenfranchise voters of color in this country; yet he has the nerve to chastise Cuba about free elections?
In the words of Nelson Mandela, “When Africa called, Cuba answered.”
It was the U.S. CIA which allegedly helped capture Mandela. It was the U.S. that labeled him a terrorist—until 2008. It is the United States through AFRICOM who is competing with China to control Africa’s resources. If anyone should have been insulted enough to walk out of Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, it should have been Raul Castro.
But of the two men, he is the one who knows that would have been the exact opposite of honoring Mandela’s legacy.
Let’s just call Cruz’s words and actions the audacity of revisionism.
