• Charlie Rangel To Suffering Cubans: “There’s Always Pain”

    For whatever reason, liberals believe that “opening up” and “liberalizing” Cuba will somehow turn the Communist-run country into a Jeffersonian democracy.

    It won’t.

    Obama’s unilateral decision to ease the half-century embargo on Cuba won’t be a magic bullet that turns the Castro regime away from perpetuating horrific human rights violations.

    But pie-in-the-sky liberals and elected Democrats like Charlie Rangel don’t care about the real world consequences of putting Cuba on the same diplomatic level as Israel.

    And when it comes to the countless Cubans who have been brutalized, beaten, wrongfully imprisoned, murdered, and molested by the Castro regime, “there’s always pain,” says Rangel.

    “How would you explain the president’s plan to normalize relations to Americans, like the ones in the audience tonight, that have lost everything, that have lost family members to the Castro regime?” asked MSNBC anchor Ronan Farrow.

    “Well there’s always pain when people have suffered under a Communist regime,” said Rangel. The career politician believes that relaxing restrictions on Cuba will eventually help to “ease the pain” that the Cuban people are feeling. (Video above.)

    But that’s a bunch of bull.

    No matter what the Obama administration does, the Castro regime will continue to openly oppress the citizenry of Cuba. The Castors will always have little regard for even the most basic of human rights of the Cuban people.

    Cuba isn’t even an ally on the world stage.

    From Rangel to Obama, Cuba is just the latest example of Democrats and liberals claiming to stand up for oppressed people but really pursuing whatever policy it is that makes them feel good about themselves.
