Florida Governor Ron DeSantis suggested the Cuban military overthrow the tyrannical government amid dramatic protests.
During a press conference, DeSantis said, “… I think that the best thing would be for those military, particularly some of the younger military folks, to understand, you can really be heroic in this, you can play an instrumental role in founding a free Cuba, re-founding the country and a free republic. And that will be something that will help millions of people, and that will be something that will cause you to live in the history books.”
The comments were made after the governor urged President Biden to intervene and provide Wi-Fi access to the people of Cuba. After nationwide protests, the socialist government restricted internet access and cut off Cuban communication.
FBA reported earlier this week, “Beginning in the city of San Antonio de los Banos outside of Havana, word of the protests spread quickly throughout the island nation via social media, a relatively new commodity to Cuba, having only been given access to 3G mobile internet 2 and a half years ago by the authoritarian Cuban government. As more people joined in the protests, chanting ‘Freedom!’ and calling for Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel to step down, pro-government counter-protesters and state police clashed with them in violent showdowns in several cities.”
