Cruz BLASTS Obama Over Visit To Communist Cuba, Will Only Visit Under THESE Terms

Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael, had fled the Castro regime in Cuba to escape persecution and make a better life for himself and his family.  The sacrifices that his father and family have had to make have had a lasting impression on Cruz.  As reported by Breitbart, Cruz admonished Obama for ignoring the human rights violations of Cuba’s communist leaders.

“Today is a sad day in American history,” Cruz said. “For decades, leftists and Hollywood liberals have made the pilgrimage to Cuba to pay homage to Fidel Castro and Raul Castro. It’s very chic for leftists to celebrate vicious communist dictators.”

Cruz went on to explain just how much his family had to suffer at the hands of Castro regime. “This is an issue I know firsthand,” Cruz said. “My family has experienced the ravage of Cuba. My father fought the Cuban revolution. My father was imprisoned and tortured as a teenager by Batista. And my aunt, my tia Sonia, was imprisoned and tortured by Castro’s goons. Now when president Obama is in Cuba, you know who he’s not going to meet? He’s not going to meet the dissidents who are being tortured right now by Raul and Fidel Castro, who are being silenced for daring to stand up.”

Cruz longs for the day that he can visit his father’s homeland, but he refuses to visit while Cuba is still held hostage under a dictatorship.  When Cruz visits, he will do so when Cuba is a free country. “I cannot wait to celebrate with the people of Cuba, 90 miles off America’s shore, their liberation, their freedom from the communist dictatorship that has sacked their future, that has destroyed their economy, that has destroyed their lives,” Cruz said. “And that will only happen with a president who doesn’t side reflexively with every enemy of America.”
