After a Democrat Tom Harkin Praises Cuba, Marco Rubio Blasts Communism Like No U.S. Politician Since Reagan

After Democratic Senator Tom Harkin praised Cuba on several issues,
Senator Marco Rubio gave what has been called by Miami Herald reporter
Marc Caputo as the “best oration of his career.”
Its passion and candor about the despicable socialist regimes of Cuba
and Venezuela should put those politicians who can actually praise the
oppressive nations to shame. The best lines from Rubio’s stemwinder,
which is worth every minute:


  • Let me tell you what the Cubans are really good at, because they
    don’t know how to run their economy, they don’t know how to build, they
    don’t know how to govern a people. What they are really good at is
    repression.
  • He cited a poll, ‘More Americans want normal relations with
    Cuba.’ So do I — a democratic and free Cuba. But you want us to reach
    out and develop friendly relationships with a serial violator of human
    rights, who supports what’s going on in Venezuela and every other
    atrocity on the planet? On issue after issue, they are always on the
    side of the tyrants. Look it up. And this is who we should be opening up
    to? Why don’t they change? Why doesn’t the Cuban government change? Why
    doesn’t the Venezuelan government change?
  • But here’s the great news. I don’t know if they get C-SPAN in
    Cuba. I bet you the government people do. I hope you see that in
    America, we’re a free society. You’re allowed to come on the floor and
    you’re allowed to say and spread whatever you want. You think Cuba’s a
    paradise? You think it’s an example and a model that we should be
    following? You’re free to say that, here, in the press and anywhere you
    want. But we’re also free to come here and tell the truth. We’re also
    free to come here and denounce the violations of human rights and
    brutality.

That’s just a sample of this awesome speech that hopefully will
change the game and encourage more politicians to come out openly
against the global scourge of socialism.
