There is an "overflowing hatred on social networks," the president said.

Well he's certainly telling the truth about that, and given the past history of those very platforms, I wouldn't be at all surprised if, ironically, this came from Russia trying to goad either the US into doing something stupid or Cuba severing ties with the US. Russia is mother; Russia is father; etc....

People clearly are using social media platforms to distribute misinformation. No doubt the Cuban president's administration is working with them to flag those posts for removal.

Best point TL;DR: Just because Rubio and some Republicans are championing this doesn't mean you need to pull out stupid talking points from the far left. That's not helping either.

I did and it's glorious. It's always like a time capsule from the 70s and 80s there: There are no real protests, the US is at fault, something something blockade, something imperialism, talk about historical revolutionaries in light of of the US, more music. At least the music is awesome.

Got a QSL card from there 30 years ago and got a letter in the mail from Cuba every year afterward with a tiny calendar. I'm sure that raised eyebrows in rural US.

Communism: I worked with a guy who swam out of East Germany before you could just leave.  He said it was not very stressful, but nobody was motivated to work very hard.  I might find it an ok form of government since I'm already not motivated to work very hard.   But I can see how the get-it-done types might chafe.
I wonder what's really going on in Cuba- it's not easy to cut through the layers of propaganda from all sources.

I mean just imagine if some government official released an easily disprovable lie to attempt to cover up a moment of mass unrest that they themselves have helped to stoke.

Ha! Once in the 80's, on the same day, I received in the mail: 1) a letter from the Ronald Reagan re-election committee, begging for cash and 2) a invitation to subscribe to "Soviet Life" signed by Leonid Brezhnev. Go ahead, try to nail me down, motherfarkers!

According to the article only one person has been killed in these "massive transformative" protests.  By this time, with all that walking around in the heat, there would be dead MAGA chugs piled up like cordwood, so there's that.

Whereas capitalism isn't good for society as a whole even in theory, because its entire farking purpose is to concentrate power in the hands of greedy assholes.

Quite frankly, I don't trust the narrative on either side of the Caribbean. Cuba's government has obvious credibility issues, but America has kind of a long, storied history of making shiat up in regards to Cuba as well.

If there's no anti-government unrest in Cuba, why does the government there find it necessary to organize pro-government demonstrations in the tropical July heat?

Oh yeah, "credibility issues", the Left and Cuba, they wouldn't say shiat if they had a mouth full.

Nothing the US government or media says about Cuba should ever be believed without confirmation from third parties.
