Joe Biden has seemed absent in dealing with the protests of the people of Cuba calling for their freedom.

As we reported, Cuban-Americans marched across South Florida chanting “Where is Biden?” because a real response seemed lacking.

While Biden said he supported the Cuban people after a delayed response, even then the criticism seemed muted because he seemed unwilling to even use the term “communism” to describe the regime. Instead, his team seemed to blame the pandemic and “mismanagement” for the problem.

Biden finally got around to it today, calling communism “a failed system,”  after being dragged into saying something more. “Communism is a failed system, universally failed system,” Biden admitted. “I don’t see socialism as a very useful substitute, but that’s another story,” he continued without elaborating.

“After being shamed into finally taking stronger positions, President Biden finally put out a statement saying that the protesters were exercising their right to peacefully assemble. Even that
