By JAVIER MANJARRESSenator Ted Cruz, who is of Cuban descent, attended the annual Cuba-Democracy PAC luncheon in Miami along with Senator Marco Rubio and gave one of the most profound smack-downs of Fidel Castro’s reign-of-terror that I have ever heard.
Cruz said that, “hopefully, in the not too distant future, Fidel Castro and Raul Castro will join Hugo Chavez, and all three will face the ultimate judgment.” Cruz later referred to Fidel Castro and Che Guevara as “murderous thugs” of the past and the present day.
Cruz then quoted former President Ronald Reagan’s famous “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” statement in front of the Brandenburg gate, in addition to Reagan referring to the Soviet Union as the “Evil Empire.”
Cruz then concluded by suggesting that America needs a “President that will stand up today and say, Mr. Castro, let the Cuban people go. Mr. Castro, open up the ballot box. Mr. Castro, empty the jails.”
