Americans have experienced first-hand how the Biden Administration works with the news media, corporations, and Hollywood to curtail free speech. The censorship surrounding COVID dissent is a real-time example. Other examples include labeling dissenters as insurrectionists, racists, bigots, homophobes, xenophobes, fascists, etc. The Biden Administration encourages even radical dissent when it aligns with Democratic Party ideology as seen by the outrageous encouragement to harass Supreme Court justices over abortion. The Biden Administration war on free speech, however, goes far deeper as a political philosophy as demonstrated by a recent State Department announcement.
On Monday, May 16 the State Department announced, “the United States is taking a series of measures to increase support for the Cuban people in line with our national security interests. The Cuban people are confronting an unprecedented humanitarian crisis–and our policy will continue to focus on empowering the Cuban people to help them create a future free from repression and economic suffering.” Without really saying what that “humanitarian crisis” is, State announced it would increase visa processing, expand authorized travel to Cuba, expand internet and microfinance services to Cuban businesses, and remove cash limits to allow more money to “flow more freely to the Cuban people while not enriching those who perpetrate human rights abuses.” In other words, Biden is enriching the communist state in the name of humanitarianism.
Hours earlier, Cuba’s Communist Party announced creation of 37 new crimes criminalizing political dissent, among them a three year prison sentence for “insulting” a regime official. According to Brietbart News, the new crimes also eliminate the need for the regime to provide evidence for a guilty verdict. Biden’s move drew criticism from his own party. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) Thursday told MSNBC’s “Jose Diaz-Balart Reports,” “So, instead of insisting that the regime move towards change, respect for human rights, peaceful protests, giving a voice to the Cuban people, and stopping the jailing of dissidents, what we have is a unilateral concession that ultimately was responded to by having a penal code that includes the death penalty for free speech activities.”Even Menendez sees through the charade.
Supporting the oppressive communist regime in Cuba is a continuation of the Obama foreign policy that was undone by President Donald Trump. The revelation here is that the actions of both Biden and Obama, while claiming to be free speech advocates, actually indicate a deep-rooted political philosophy of communist-style oppression of dissent both in America and in places like Cuba. Think about the Homeland Security Disinformation Governance Board recently dissolved without a single meeting because of ardent free speech opposition. Yet, Biden was implementing this truth squad under the guise of protecting free speech. Christ said in Matthew 7:15-16, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.” Biden’s is a philosophy against dissent.
