Cuban Refugee: America Is Swallowing the ‘Poison Pill’ of Communism
Maximo Alvarez says 'not only have they swallowed it, they digested it'
Cuban-American immigrant Maximo Alvarez, who famously spoke at the Republican convention last year, has warned Americans they are on a path to communism.
Alvarez reflected on escaping communism to the land of the free but now worries America is turning into his home country.
He was interviewed this week by Lisa Boothe, and his stance remains the same.
Alvarez has warned that many Americans have already swallowed the “poison pill” of communism.
During Wednesday’s episode of the podcast “The Truth with Lisa Boothe," Alvarez said communism has successfully infiltrated American culture and institutions.
He also remembered how Cubans rights evaporated under Fidel Castro when he was a child.
Boothe referenced Alvarez’s speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC), asking him whether he thought Americans have “swallowed the communist poison pill.”
“Not only have they swallowed it, they digested it,” Alvarez responded.

Maximo Alvarez: “Not only they have swallowed it, digested it, listen to the media. They're no longer objective. You can tell how much they hate this country. Look at our academia!”

“Listen to the media. They’re no longer objective. You can tell how much they hate this country.”
“Look at our, our academia!” he continued.
“Our kids are not being … they’re indoctrinated!"
Maximo Alvarez on Nikita Khrushchev: “And in that speech, he says, one day the United States of America will be communist and we will not even have a war. We will infiltrate their education, we'll infiltrate society, we'll infiltrate their youth.” https://t.co/uQeTUgruP9 pic.twitter.com/vihZINk0DS— Lisa Boothe (@LisaMarieBoothe) April 28, 2021
"They are taught that America is a bad country."
"That we’re a bunch of racists, that we’re bad people, and we have to pay back," he added.
"If this country was racist, I wouldn’t be here."
"If this country was a racist country, most of us wouldn’t be here because even some people in your family came from another country.”
Álvarez, the founder of Sunshine Gasoline Distributors in Florida, highlighted last year the “defund the police” movement and calls for universal health care similar to the promises Castro made before seizing power in Cuba.
“Those false promises — spread the wealth, defund the police, trust a socialist state more than your family and your community — they don’t sound radical to my ears," he said.
“I heard the promises of Fidel Castro. And I can never forget all those who grew up around me, who looked like me, who suffered and starved and died because they believed those empty promises. They swallowed the communist poison pill.”
