Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has continued blaming the United States for the Cuban people's suffering under their oppressive communist dictatorship.

AOC said in a video that the 60 year-long U.S. embargo on Cuba is one of the main reasons for suffering on the island.

“Last month, uh, once again, the, uh, the U.N. voted overwhelmingly, uh, to call on the United States to lift its embargo on Cuba, and the United States was one of the only, uh, countries that voted no,” she complained.

“The embargo, the U.S. embargo, is absurdly cruel, and like other U.S. policies, particularly other U.S. policies targeting Latin Americans and Latinos, the cruelty is the point,” she claimed without evidence.

WATCH:

“And I outright reject the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo, where they say, or they have said that they wanted to maintain the bar, the embargo, as it is a source of leverage and pressure, there is no way where it is acceptable for us to use cruelty as a, as a point of leverage against everyday people, period."

"Whether it’s our border, or whether it’s the U.S. embargo on Cuba, the cruelty is the point.”

AOC also blamed the protests in Cuba on the U.S. and only criticizing Cuba’s government for actions in response to the protests.

“We are seeing Cubans rise up and protest for their rights like never before,” she said.

“We stand in solidarity with them, and we condemn the anti-democratic actions led by President Diaz-Canel. The suppression of the media, speech, and protest are all gross violations of civil rights.”

“We also must name the U.S. contribution to Cuban suffering: our sixty-year-old embargo,” she continued.

“Last month, once again, the U.N. voted overwhelmingly to call on the United States to lift its embargo on Cuba."

"The embargo is absurdly cruel, and, like too many other U.S. policies targeting Latin Americans, the cruelty is the point."

"I outright reject the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo. It is never acceptable for us to use cruelty as a point of leverage against everyday people.”
