Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) dropped the hammer on Democrats in Congress over Cuba telling them to “get on a raft and sail 90 miles south to the socialist paradise.” Ted named and shamed Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“Ronald Reagan said years ago the thing the Left never seems to understand is the Berlin Wall that divided East Germany from West Germany, the Berlin Wall, the machine guns all point in one direction,” Cruz said.
“The analogy I’m fond of using as a Cuban-Americans is the thing that liberals never seem to understand if you go down to Key West, is the rafts are only going one direction. Just once I want to see some left-wing socialist — I want to see Bernie Sanders, I want to see Elizabeth Warren, I want to see AOC go down to Key West, get on a raft, and sail 90 miles south to the socialist paradise.”
“Their ideas don’t work. Tyranny doesn’t work; freedom is powerful,” Ted said. After protests broke out in Cuba, AOC called for an end to the U.S. embargo seeming to say it is our fault the people are miserable and not the failed communist regime.
From The Daily Wire:
In October 2020, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden said of Sanders, “Look, I’m the guy that ran against a socialist.”
Ocasio-Cortez said in March 2019 at the South by Southwest festival, “To me, capitalism is irredeemable.”
Daniel Henninger wrote in March 2019 in The Wall Street Journal of Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez:
The reality is that Bernie Sanders of Vermont and now a first-term House Member from New York City have pushed the Democratic Party through an already open door into an infatuation with democratic socialism.
This means the next Democratic administration, and that would include a Biden administration, will sit to the left of the Obama presidency … The blueprint isn’t AOC’s cooking videos. It’s the proposal Sen.
Elizabeth Warren introduced on these pages last August—the Accountable Capitalism Act, requiring that large firms obtain a federally approved charter and let employees elect 40% of company directors.

“The embargo is absurdly cruel and, like too many other U.S. policies targeting Latin Americans, the cruelty is the point. I outright reject the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo.” pic.twitter.com/DsYmyVhG8o
When you've got Bernie Sanders and AOC embracing and advocating for socialism in America, they don't want to look at the torture, murder, and oppression and poverty that’s happening in Cuba. pic.twitter.com/Lg8IpHvUnz— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) July 15, 2021
