Pro-Cuba Libs Won't Want You to See This Video of an Island Native Walking Into a US Supermarket for First Time

Western Journal

The firebrand Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York has made a name for herself promoting the glories of socialism while conspicuously ignoring its downfalls.

While those with even a cursory understanding of world history over the last century often find it astounding that there is so much ignorance surrounding the way socialism has always — alwaysplayed out when applied to nations like Russia, Venezuela and Cuba, AOC’s base is not known for their economic savvy but rather that same, old, ancient human sin of covetousness that has led millions to believe the state can afford them what fortune has not: provision and comfort.

It is, of course, authoritarianism and poverty that Marxist governments are best adept at establishing, as, again, history blatantly shows us.

Just 91 miles away from the southernmost tip of Florida, the island nation of Cuba has been a living example of the failures of communism for decades, and yet when AOC and her ilk aren’t outright ignoring the suffering of the Cuban people, they’re blaming the United States for its desperate poverty.

Ocasio-Cortez rather ironically points to food insecurity in the United States to support her economically destructive policies, yet she would most certainly rather not have you know that what true equality looks like in Cuba is widespread and certainly equal desperate poverty.

A pair of YouTubers consisting of a Cuban-American woman and a Cuban man who recently came to the United States is certainly shaking up AOC’s worldview with moving videos contrasting life in their ancestral homeland, “Cubita linda,” and the bounty and plenty available for ex-pats here in the land of the free.

Yoel and Mari uploaded a video earlier this year showing Cuban Yoel’s first trip to a grocery store in the United States, and it is both paradigm-busting … and heartbreaking.

The pair opened their video in Cuba itself, where Mari managed to covertly film the inside of a Cuban grocery store.

She showed us the bare shelves, the insane prices of the odd assortment of non-perishables and the long lines outside that can be forced to wait even longer when the power goes out in the grocery store.

When she and Yoel arrived in Miami, however, she was eager to show him the abundance of American supermarkets, but it turned out to be an incredibly poignant experience for the two of them.

Upon entering a local Aldi, Yoel at first joked and goofed off, excitedly grabbing an advertisement flyer at the front of the store before they entered its inner sanctum.

He excitedly picked up limes — “There’s limes!” he declared in Spanish — as well as huge onions, which he remarked were the size of a “pelota.”

As he began to take in the sheer volume of food packed on shelves and in the coolers, however, he slowly grew more somber and it became clear emotions were running high.

Como hay carne — y queso!” he commented — “How much meat and cheese!”

He seemed quite moved and saddened by the reality his countrymen face back home and how this experience contrasted to his own throughout his life in the communist nation.

Yoel slowly picked up massive packages of food, frozen pizzas and cuts of meat, apparently both awed and severely grieved.

At one point, he asked Mari about the butter cooler, which was lined with various tubs, sticks and cubes of butter.

The Cuban man was clearly stunned when she explained they’re simply different types of butter.

Tipo … de manteqilla …” he said, scoffing in stunned silence, considering that there were multiple types of butter to choose from.

He explained that the whole experience was making him sad, as there was so much to buy here while at home, there’s simply not.

No hay,” he said, “There is not.”

He explained it was too much to take in, and the pair decided he probably needed a break from all the colors, lights and overwhelming reality that, just 91 miles north of impoverished Cuba, sustenance is so freely and widely available as his own people are starving.

A few days later, Yoel was back to his normal exuberant self by the time Mari took him to Safeway so he could see an even bigger supermarket.

“Wow!” he said upon entering the well-stocked store.

Large cuts of fish immediately caught his eye, as he wondered aloud what to buy.

He commented on the loveliness of a neat row of fresh-cut, colorful fruit lining the shelves of a refrigerated endcap.

“What colors they have,” he said in Spanish.

At the milk cooler, he marveled over the wide varieties of milk, noting that his whole life, he’s only known two kinds of milk: from a cow, and from powder.

Mari explained in voice-over that the experience has made her appreciate what we can so easily take for granted here at home, and you’d have to have a heart of stone not to feel the same.

When AOC bashes our country, where even the lowest-income families can still find a supermarket stocked with bread, cheese, meat, milk and various types of all of the above, does she consider what the alternative is?

It is the same rhetoric she uses about the evils of the wealthy and the glories of so-called “equity” that led to the Cuban revolution, and to decades of poverty and economic instability on the island against which the Cuban people are now loudly protesting — yet the authoritarian regime would have you believe, as AOC would, that this is the United States’ fault.

It is American-style capitalism, plain and simple, that has created more wealth and more abundance than the world has ever known, and it is socialism that has resulted in a Cuban population that is so deprived of basic necessities, the abundance we take for granted was almost too much for Yoel to even process.

AOC must rely on ignorance to perpetuate her rhetoric — because if the American people knew what Cuba was really like, they would never abide her support for its ideology for a single moment.

Graphic Warning: Horrified Crowd Shouts as Parent Shows School's Pedophilia Comics at Board Meeting

Western Journal

Published

on

It appears Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia has been disseminating pedophilic pornography to its students.

As much was revealed by author and former journalist for The Wall Street Journal Asra Nomani, who attended a local Fairfax County School Board meeting Thursday night.

During the meeting, Fairfax High School mother Stacy Langton brought two books up to the podium, along with printouts of some of their pages. The books were “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison and “Gender Queer” by Maia Kobabe.

Langton said she found the books in the high school library, the Robinson Secondary School library and at others across the county.

“The books were available, and we checked them out,” the mother said, according to Nomani’s report.

Nomani recorded the school board meeting, as well as the contents of the books, in a video posted to her Twitter.

Given the incredibly pornographic nature of the images (comic-style pictures showing individuals performing sex acts on one another), we will not embed the video in this story.

If you do wish to see how truly horrific the content is, you can view Nomani’s video here.

The books don’t just show any kind of pornography, however.

They appear to show drawings of child pornography by depicting acts of pedophilia.

One book even includes a “fourth-grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male,” Nomani reported.

In “Lawn Boy,” the author describes performing such an act for the first time at the age of 10.

This is the type of material a pedophile would use to groom his victims, making them read it as a way of normalizing explicit sex acts.

And the Fairfax County school district allegedly made these books available to “minors as young as seventh grade, or as young as 12 years old.”

The school board chair, Stella Pekarsky, attempted to defend the inclusion by claiming one of the schools they were found at was made up of “high school students.”

Nomani noted in her report that Robinson Secondary School, where Langton said the books were also available, “includes seventh and eighth graders.”

Either way, it likely doesn’t make parents feel much better knowing that their high school children may have been and possibly continue to be exposed to this horrific content.

According to WRC-TV, Fairfax County Public Schools said it would temporarily remove the books from the library. At a later date, they will be reviewed by a committee of students, staff and parents for a final decision.

For years, conservatives have been saying that the sexual-freedom-movement left’s ultimate goal is to sexualize children and they’ve been called crackpots for saying so.

Well, who are the crackpots now?

Stories continue to break revealing content developed and written by pro-LGBT authors such as this being disseminated to young children.

Minnesota’s Richfield Public Schools district was also caught this week using a sexual education program that has children role-play as sexually active gay teenagers deciding whether or not they want to have sex.

Modern-day leftists have taken over the public school system.

And, if you let them, they’ll use that power to sexualize America’s children with pedophile-esque grooming techniques.

The only county he flipped from red to blue to do so was Maricopa, the state’s most populous, encompassing the Phoenix metropolitan area.



Former President Donald Trump carried the county by approximately 44,500 votes in 2016 and Biden won it by 45,100 in 2020.
