America is fast heading down the slippery slope of communism. Call it what you will—communism, socialism, fascism, democratic socialism, liberal democrat, whatever—these are all different shades of tyranny, cousins of the same family. One need look no further than Cuba and compare what is happening in America to see how far America has journeyed toward communism. The very foundation of American liberty rests in the First Amendment guarantees of freedoms of speech and religion. What we see in Cuba is the targeting of religious leaders because they speak out against the communist regime. Why? Because communism requires replacing God with government. It’s atheist and ruthlessly so.
Peaceful protests against the Cuban communist regime have ended in the brutality against protesters, especially religious leaders. The Communist Party of Cuba is an explicitly atheist institution that inhibits all religious worship while deceptively tying communism to Catholicism by promoting late dictator Fidel Castro’s ties to nominally Catholic, but functionally Marxist liberation theologists. The Miami Herald reported on April 23, 2006 that Fidel Castro was responsible for 31,173 executions and prison deaths since he took power in 1959. Some 5,728 were killed by firing squads. He refused medical attention to those trying to escape the island by boat, resulting in another estimated 77,000 deaths. Nearly all the sources indicate an exact number of deaths caused by Castro’s regime is unattainable, with some estimating the death toll over 1.5 million.
In America, followers of Christ are not facing firing squads, but we do face the “Squad.” Breitbart reports that as of Monday afternoon, prominent leftists who promote socialism in America and their constituencies who were deceived enough to elect them to Congress were silent on the violence against protesters in Cuba. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) had not posted any social media (which they usually have something to say about anything anti-Christian or anti-Jew). Joe Biden said he stands with the Cuban people, but failed to denounce the violence against them by the regime. Face it: the Democratic Party is sympathetic to communism.
Democratic Party leaders use the news media, entertainment, and corporations to do what they know they are Constitutionally prohibited to do—censor freedom of speech, suppress religious expression, force healthcare decisions, promote societal division, and a host of other jack-boot tactics. If you look at Cuba today, can you see the struggle in America tomorrow? People, these leftists attack your freedoms of speech and religion because they are the foundation of freedom. The people of Cuba know it all too well. Once freedom is lost, it is nearly impossible to regain. We are at a tipping point. As in Ephesians 6, put on the full armor of God and pray “that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel.” We all need to rise up or they will make the US (us) like Cuba.
