View of Downtown Miami at Sunset //PC: Gabriella Hoffman | December 17, 2014
Largely in response to Bernie Sanders’ rise in the Democrat Party primary, the City of Miami—home to tens of thousands of Cubans who fled Fidel Castro’s regime—will host an “anti-communist” concert in April of this year.
The “anti-communist” concert, billed as the first of its kind in Miami and the U.S., will be held on April 11th at the James L. Knight Center in downtown. The city’s elected officials, comprising Republicans and Democrats, voted 5-0 to co-sponsor the event. More interestingly, the Miami Herald reports the city will waive the “$21,500 for rental costs, broadcasting fees and police and fire services.”
Miami Mayor Francis X. Suarez, a Republican and son of Xaiver Saurez ( the first Cuban-born American to serve as mayor before him), posted this video statement announcing the concert:
Supporting socialism and communism in Florida politically makes candidates unviable and unelectable. In fact, Bernie Sanders’ rise to the Democrat Party nomination has many Miami-area Democrats panicked.
“Donald Trump wins Florida if Bernie is our nominee,” said state Rep. Javier Fernandez, a Democratic candidate in a majority-Hispanic state Senate district.
“If Bernie Sanders is atop the ticket, it’s going to make it tougher for all of us to win in Florida,” said Fernandez, who has endorsed Sanders’ rival Joe Biden. “No one really sees Sanders winning Florida and I don’t think his campaign does either.”
Alternative, if Bernie is the nominee Florida will overwhelmingly go to President Trump. Miami Herald columnist Andres Oppenheimer explained why this is the case:
Democratic front-runner Sen. Bernie Sanders’ latest remarks about Cuba and Israel are so offensive to many moderate Democrats and independent voters that they would almost guarantee a Donald Trump victory in Florida if Sanders becomes the Democratic nominee for president.
Worse, Sanders’ statement about Cuba in a Sunday interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes,” as well a tweet explaining why he will boycott a meeting of the pro-Israel AIPAC lobbying group, may cost Democrats key congressional seats — and perhaps cause the Democrats to lose the House of Representatives.
Sanders had said in the “60 Minutes” interview that he opposed the “authoritarian nature” of the Cuban regime. “But, you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. When Fidel Castro came to office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?”
After dictator Fidel Castro died on November 26th, 2016, Cubans took it to the streets and celebrated the tyrant’s death.
The horror’s of Castro’s Cuba—including the thousands upon thousands of deaths, firing squads, and other atrocities—still sting here in the United States, especially in south Florida. Americans would do themselves some good listening to survivors who fled that wretched regime.
The embrace of totalitarian regimes by Bernie Sanders, an avowed Marxist, shouldn’t come as a surprise. This guy has a long track record of praising dictators in Europe, Latin and South America.
