Buck posed the following question: “Is it fair to say that there are Democrats who are communist sympathizers?” It’s increasingly self-evident why that accusation seems to sting for many Democrats, and now we have another piece of evidence.
Nikole Hannah-Jones is a celebrated author on the left. She’s the person most credited with the 1619 Project, a grossly inaccurate rewriting of American history, that still managed to win the Pulitzer Prize. She is also a patron saint of critical race theory.
In a 2019 podcast, she said the following, which you can hear in the audio below:
“Cuba has the least inequality between black and white people of any place really in the hemisphere. I mean the Caribbean – most of the Caribbean it’s hard to count because the white population in a lot of those countries is very, very small. They’re countries run by black folks, but in places that are truly at least biracial countries, Cuba actually has the least inequality, and that’s largely due to socialism, which I’m sure no one wants to hear.”
Buck nailed it with: “Oh, there’s equality in Cuba all right, just not the kind that people want.”
In Clay’s words: “I don’t think there are a lot of people in America, at least not reasonable people, saying, in order to eliminate inequality, we all have to stop living in homes and everybody has to live in the streets and be equally homeless. This is part and parcel, unfortunately, of this love affair that exists between the left and Cuba and this romanticized notion that Fidel Castro has in some way created a perfect world.”
All you have to do is look to Cuba and Venezuela in our own hemisphere to see that socialism and communism don’t work. But the left continues to look to their utopian fantasies instead.
