Pro-freedom protesters are rising up across Cuba.
People are fed up with the communist regime.
But Cuba’s communist dictator did something nightmarish to shut down pro-freedom protests.
Leftists in the West always get uncomfortable when protesters rise up against socialist and communist governments.
Democrats tried to frame the protests as simply anger over rising cases of COVID-19, but the street demonstrations are unequivocally about exasperation with the communist dictatorship that’s been in place for 62 years.
And now the Cuban government shut down the use of several social media apps in the country.
Alp Toker, the director of London-based internet monitoring firm NetBlocks, told the Associated Press, “On Monday, Cuban authorities were blocking Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Telegram . . . This does seem to be a response to social media-fueled protest.”
Confirmed: Social media and messaging platforms restricted in #Cuba from Monday on state-run internet provider ETECSA; real-time network data corroborate reports of internet disruptions amid widening anti-government protests; incident ongoing 📵#CubaSOS

Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel also called on “revolutionaries” to take to the streets and beat back the pro-freedom protesters.
At a time when pro-freedom demonstrators in Hong Kong and Havana wave the American flag, leftists are actively trying to tear it down.
The contrast shows the lack of gratitude so many on the Left have.
They don’t understand how bad things can really get.
Many of them defend communist regimes like Cuba, and they’ve been doing it for years.
They defend a country where citizens are not allowed to leave.
Professionals who are granted permission to travel outside the country cannot do so with their families for fear that they might defect.
This is the type of governance that Democrats have a soft spot for.
It’s disgusting, and any American who believes in freedom should hope that the communist dictatorship of Cuba breaks.
