Welcome to Insanity Wrap, your daily dose of the best of the worst. That Democrats agree with Cuba’s socialism is today’s big crazy.

Democrats Agree With Cuba’s Socialism
Well, he’s right:
We’re just talking about how Progressives are really happy about all of the things in the “infrastructure” bill [scare quotes added by Insanity Wrap]. They are really being led in many ways by the Progressive wing of their [Democrat] party. And the Progressive wing of the Democratic party does not want to go hard against Cuba, against some of the things the Castro regime may have been a part of. In part, because there are some Democrats, some Progressives, who agree with some of those things. They agree with universal health care, they agree with some of the programs that were in place in a more socialist kind of society.
To Insanity Wrap, living in a one-party state that squashes dissent, tortures political prisoners, maintains a stranglehold on virtually all economic activity, can’t keep its own people fed, cuts off communication with the outside world at will, and only achieved a halfway decent standard of living (on the S***hole Country Scale) when it was suckling the Soviet teat, is a high price to pay for “free” health care.
Free health care that sucks, Bee-Tee-Dub.
The fact that Cuba is a miserable totalitarian state where life is good for the nomenklatura and borderline starvation for everyone else is not a secret to anyone, not even to Progressives.
Especially not to Progressives.
It’s a classic bait-and-switch.
The Left baits with free stuff, but delivers misery.
We’re lucky — so far — that the “best” Presidentish Joe Biden has been able to deliver is inflation, unsustainable spending and debt, and the political repression of a few hundred January 6 rioters, most of whom don’t seem to have done much or any actual rioting.
But they’re working on establishing a “kinder, gentler” form of repression, as the current big push for effective Democratic political control of social media proves.
So when “some” Progressives (find me one who doesn’t agree with Cuba) say they admire Cuba’s health care system, what they’re really saying is they admire the Communist regime’s total control over the once-prosperous island nation they socialized into destitution.
And when Insanity Wrap says “they admire,” we really mean “they envy.”
