Cubans have been marching in the streets for freedom, chanting “Libertad!” and demonstrating by the thousands that they’ve had enough of the sham called communism. They know economic disaster and political repression come with that territory.

Yet today we’re peering through Alice’s looking glass as we watch these events unfold. Everything is backwards. Elites in the U.S. government, media, and Big Tech seem to be taking the side of the communist authorities who are clamping down on the protests, Soviet-style. Some journalists and Twitter have spun the idea that Cubans are taking to the streets mostly because of a desire for more awareness of COVID-19 cases and deaths. Please.

That’s probably a gross underestimate, but you get the picture. It’s summed up well in Professor R.J.

If more of us recognized the ideology as the murderous perversion that it is and understood how its tools pave the path to oppression, we’d be more vigilant. But how
