A New York Times article about the protests in Cuba starts:
“Shouting ‘Freedom’ and other anti-government slogans, hundreds of Cubans took to the streets in cities around the country on Sunday to protest food and medicine shortages, in a remarkable eruption of discontent not seen in nearly 30 years.”
The New York Times headline says Cubans are protesting “misery” in a country that “limits dissent.”
But about 30 paragraphs into the story, the New York Times finally admits what Cubans are truly protesting: a brutal communist dictatorship. The extra-repressive Covid lockdowns causing further economic hardship are just the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Meanwhile, the Associated Press reported that:
“As Cubans took to the streets to protest the country’s worst economic crisis in decades, authorities blocked social media sites. It’s a tried-and-true method of stifling dissent…”
Now it makes perfect sense why social media companies block freedom-loving Americans and label them “anti-government radicals.”
