Cuban Immigrant and Gas Executive Warns Americans About the Dangers of Communism
“The only country in the world, no other country in the world that you can start a business from the trunk of your car and within a very few years with hard work, commitment and all of the core values that we learned from this very culture of ours we can become very important to our future.”
Maximo Alvarez, president of Sunshine Gasoline, attended an event at the White House on Friday. He based his remarks about the ongoing protests in the United States on his own experience as someone who escaped Castro’s Cuba.
His heartfelt words were very pro-America and pro-Trump, which is probably why this has been largely ignored by the media.
Real Clear Politics provides a transcript:
ALVAREZ: Look at our backgrounds. Just think that in 1961 as a 13-year-old by myself on my way to Spain, I wasn’t even coming here I arrived in this great country and almost 60 years later I am sitting next to the president of the United States talking about the American dream.
The only country in the world, no other country in the world that you can start a business from the trunk of your car and within a very few years with hard work, commitment and all of the core values that we learned from this very culture of ours we can become very important to our future. We can become those people who make the next generation better than the one before.
This is the only country why do you think you have to close the borders? Because everybody in the world wants to come over here. Nobody is ever forced to come over here, we come over here in my case because my parents chose that I would not be indoctrinated by the communist country, by the totalitarian country, by the totalitarian regime. They don’t educate children, absolutely not and this is something that we need to understand.
What is happening in our backyard today I experienced as an 11-year-old. I remember vividly all of the promises that a guy named Castro gave and held 99 percent of the people swallowed the pill.
Alvarez urged people protesting for socialism that they are actually advancing communism and told them not to be “useful idiots.”
Never forget about my dad who only had a sixth-grade education but I think he was the greatest philosopher I ever met. He used to tell us how lucky he was because he was able to come from Spain to Cuba and then he came from Cuba to the United States and he saw me graduate from college and that was the biggest prize he ever hand and he said don’t lose this place because you’re never going to be as lucky as me because if you lose this place you have no place to go so with that please keep that in mind and please people explain that to our young people who are demonstrating out there don’t be useful idiots.

Watch all of this. This is why the vast majority of Cubans vote Republicans. Our families have been through this exact moment we find ourselves in here in the US. We’re begging you all not to destroy the best country in the world the way Cuba & Venezuela were destroyed. https://t.co/sySKJrk1yc

The left isn’t listening, it is exactly what they want.
Yes. The Marxist are not ignorant about the outcome. He is trying to reach the useful idiots who vote Democrat and the sleeping people who get it but are hoping this all ends well without anybody defending the USA. Mao says it won’t end well for the USA.
The people of United States, through their 1787 delegates, formed a unique form of government. They wrote a document which limited the created government. The descriptor “unique” cannot be emphasized enough. To that point in time we were/are the only country IN ALL OF HISTORY to have limited the government at the outset.
And that’s been the key to America’s success. What makes the American system different, better, and exceptional is this: America became great, not because of what government could or might do. Rather, America became great because of what government was prevented from doing. Thereby leaving the people alone, to produce, to keep, to exchange their efforts and ingenuity. Left unchecked, government will take it all, to the point of where it will eat its own seed corn, meaning, the productive. Which is why all socialist systems fail: the productive are taxed & regulated to benefit the non-productive. So high do these burdens become, the productive simply say, “What’s the use,” and stop producing.
Today’s rioters in the street are simply the useful idiots of those who would control and remain both wealthy and in charge.
Find them and you’ve found the source of the troubles.
“Thereby leaving the people alone, to produce, to keep, to exchange their efforts and ingenuity.”
To be left alone by government. Always reminds me of Brandeis in Olmstead (1928),
“The makers of our Constitution undertook to secure conditions favorable to the pursuit of happiness. They recognized the significance of man’s spiritual nature, of his feelings and of his intellect. They knew that only part of the pain, pleasure and satisfactions of life are to be found in material things. They sought to protect Americans in their beliefs, their thoughts, their emotions and their sensations. They conferred against the government, the right to be let alone—the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men.”
Leaving us alone is something the left WILL NOT TOLERATE. You will be made to care, and you will pay for it, in money and in lost freedoms.
“They recognized the significance of man’s spiritual nature, of his feelings and of his intellect.”
Brandeis was spot-on. Human nature was foremost in the minds of the Constitution’s authors. In particular, they understood that power corrupts-a human fault-and that the corruption of power knows no temporal limits.
The Constitution is often derided as “archaic” and “no longer applicable.” People who make statements like this don’t understand two things: 1.) the nature of people in general, and those attracted to power and authority specifically, does not change over time; 2.) the authors of the Constitution understood this and attempted to compose a constitution for government that takes fact #1 into account. Thus the Constitution was not written for its time, but for all times that humans are in control of government.
Single/central/minority regimes without competing interests to keep them honest, without peaceful recourse is a primary progressive path.
If you support Communism for yourself and your country, you are sadly misinformed. Unfortunately the Communist agenda has been subtly pushed here without a lot of people noticing.
Though supporting BLM sounds like a good idea on the very surface, one must consider the less-publicly stated goals of the people who run that organization, and their written documents. Leaders have made it clear that Communism/Marxism is top priority. A board member and major financier is a documented activist/terrorist previously jailed for fatal bombings in the 70s and 80s. And yes, George Soros just gave them a bunch of money.
Anyone supporting Marxism/Communism is either grossly misinformed, refusing to consider historical facts, or is sadly deranged.
