Radical Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez finally addressed the pro-freedom protests sweeping Cuba on social media Thursday night when she predictably blamed the United States for the “suffering” of Latin Americans.
“We stand in solidarity with the Cuban people and condemn the suppression of the media, speech and protest. We also call for an end to the U.S. embargo and additional Trump-era restrictions that are profoundly contributing to the suffering of Cubans,” posted AOC on Twitter.

“The embargo is absurdly cruel, and like too many other US policies targeting Latin Americans, the cruelty is the point. I outright reject the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo,” she added.
