Senator Ted Cruz, who is of Cuban descent, attended the annual Cuba-Democracy PAC luncheon in Miami along with Senator Marco Rubio and gave one of the most profound smack-downs of  Fidel Castro’s reign-of-terror that I have ever heard.

Cruz said that, “hopefully, in the not too distant future, Fidel Castro and Raul Castro will join Hugo Chavez, and all three will face the ultimate judgment.” Cruz later referred to Fidel Castro and Che Guevara as “murderous thugs” of the past and the present day.

Cruz  then quoted former President Ronald Reagan’s famous “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” statement in front of the Brandenburg gate, in addition to Reagan referring to the Soviet Union as the “Evil Empire.”


Cruz then concluded by suggesting that America needs a “President that will stand up today and say, Mr. Castro, let the Cuban people go. Mr. Castro, open up the ballot box. Mr. Castro, empty the jails.”

    Senator Cruz, I agree wholeheartedly with what you said concerning the Fidel & Raul Castro, Hugo Chavez, Che Guevara, except for one word “HOPEFULLY”. We shouldn’t want to wish an early death on anyone no matter how we feel about them. Not meaning to be critical, but it would have been more professional to begin, “In the not too distant future…”. Otherwise, everything you said was great! I pray that you will have a great future in our government as an outstanding Republican! Stand tall be be counted! God has something great for you!

      …. because being a legislator is *just like* running a blood-stained dictatorship.

    Mr. Cruz, we’ve been waiting a long time for a courageous man like you to snap the whip at the communist leeches at home and abroad. Keep up your good work cleaning House,…. especially our now-sullied White House and Senate.
    Take America Back!

    Hold the boat Hugo! Don’t row across the river Styx just yet! I heard Nelson Mandela is real old and real sick. Wait for the Castro brothers and Nelson. You all can go to hell on a group plan. What the hell, maybe the illuminate will lose their use for that African wet-back in the White House, it could only get better!

    I wonder if Senator Cruz considers his father, who fought alongside Fidel and Raul Castro, to be a murderous thug also?
