I think all Americans can learn a thing or two from those who fled Castro in the 60’s.

Cuba has become somewhat of a romanticized example of the glories of communism to young, idealistic, economically-illiterate leftists, but a quick survey of the history of the establishment of Cuba’s communist government would give anyone pause.

The Cuban population in the US is made up largely of refugees and descendants of refugees who know all too well the price of free healthcare and national literacy: gross human rights violation, seizure of private property, and the imprisonment, torture, and death of political dissidents.

So Major League Baseball star and Cuban-American J.D. Martinez knows all to well the power of an armed populace to protect against tyranny, since his family fled tyranny during the Cuban revolution and appreciates American liberty in a way many here simply cannot.

This was his attitude when critics descended on him this week for a five-year-old (that’s right, five) Instagram post defending the Second Amendment.

Here was the post:

The quote, attributed to Hitler, is likely a misquote, The Blaze points out, but Hitler’s comments on gun ownership for private citizens is even more chilling:

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjugated races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjugated races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.” — Hitler’s Table Talk, 1941-1944: Secret Conversations

Martinez, the Daily Wire reports, did initially apologize if the post offended anyone, but refused to back down on his support for the Second Amendment, citing his family’s history:

“As most of you guys know I’m Cuban-American, and most of my family was run out of Cuba because of a brutal dictator,” Martinez told a swarm of reporters on Tuesday. “It’s terrible. It’s one of those things where I’ll never get to meet some of my family because of it.”

“I love my country. I stand by the Constitution and I stand by the Second Amendment,” he continued. “It’s something I take pride in and it’s something I’ll back up.”

“Everybody has a right to stand by what they believe in and that’s what makes us American,” added Martinez, according to the New York Daily News. “We’re not all going to believe in the same things, but that’s what makes this country so great.”

Amen to that!

Here’s a story you don’t see all the time…or ever. Then again, this is the year 2020 – anything goes. If you’re a history buff, here’s your break from politics for a few minutes. Check this out, via News & Observer: The historic Cape Hatteras Light Station grounds were closed Thursday after a bomb appeared in the surf at Buxton on the Outer Banks, according to the National Park Service. A half-mile safety perimeter was established to keep tourists out, including the lighthouse grounds, nearby parking lots and surrounding beach, officials said in a release. The iconic lighthouse, with its famous black and white stripes, dates to 1870. “After careful examination, a U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit from Norfolk, Virginia, confirmed that the object … is a live military ordnance,” the National Park Service said in an update Thursday night.

Trump Was A Longtime Presbyterian, Now He Says He Is Non-Denominational Christian

Doin’ things his way…

From New York Post: President Trump, who has long identified as a Presbyterian, now considers himself a non-denominational Christian, a new report said. The president shared his change in religious identity in a written interview with the Religious News Service. “Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian,” Trump wrote, without giving an explanation for the transformation or saying when it occurred. Because everything is so PC and everybody is afraid of saying the wrong thing, free speech is at an all-time low. People are getting fired from their jobs, even expelled from school. At the end of the day, this proves that the left is winning. And it has to stop.
