New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell is a left-wing Democrat who espouses the progressive platform of her party. Thus, it should surprise no one that today she is visiting a country that is ruled by leaders who espouse a similar ideology. Today’s Democrats are embracing socialism which has many of the same dangerous attributes of communism. As Cantrell and her entourage enjoy their five-day junket to Cuba, they should try to talk to average Cubans about the impact of this dangerous ideology on the island nation. Of course, a real conversation with Cuban citizens is not allowed for any criticism of the regime is punishable with prison time.
