DeSantis Wants FL to Provide Internet to Cuba After Govt. Shutdown

Florida’s Ron DeSantis is hoping his state can help pro-Democracy protestors in Cuba by helping provide internet. DeSantis told Cuban exile members that it’s his hope that Florida companies can help Cubans by beaming in Internet service to protestors in Havana via satellite.

According to The Daily Wire:

Cuba’s government blocked social media sites late Sunday in an effort to prevent demonstrators from coordinating with each other, but also to create a media blackout, forcing news organizations covering the pro-democracy protests — the largest in decades — to rely on the official Cuban government transmissions on the subject, rather than on-the-ground reports.

“On Monday, Cuban authorities were blocking Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Telegram said Alp Toker, director of Netblocks, a London-based internet monitoring firm,” ABC News reported. Twitter does “not appear to be blocked,” though it does appear that Cuba’s government has the power to restrict access.

DeSantis told Cuba’s exile community on Tuesday night that he is trying to convince Florida companies to beam in access to the internet, providing secure, open networks to Cuban dissidents so that they can continue to organize, even if the government moves in to shut down communication.

“What does the regime do when you start to see these images? They shut down the internet. They don’t want the truth to be out, they don’t want people to be able to communicate,” DeSantis said, according to the Miami Herald. “And so one of the things I think we should be able to do with our private companies or with the United States is to provide some of that internet via satellite. We have companies on the Space Coast that launch these things.”

Some protestors have still managed to capture footage and send it to friends and allies stateside that can then post on social media, however the process isn’t perfect. The White House has claimed the protests are actually a result of COVID-19 not Cuba’s Communist government.

Voice of America started in 1942 to combat the Nazi propaganda that was flooding the air waves in Europe. After thinking about how the free world could finally defeat communism in Cuba I believe a combination of free internet and a transmitter set up in the Florida Keys for Voice of America to broadcast messages of freedom to the Cuban people would be a great idea.

The white House is void of leadership, the oval office has turned into an old man’s home, hey, let’s fly somewhere and get dome ice cream. Thank You Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas threatens to arrest the democrats who deserted their post, neglected their sworn duty, think we should return to the days of Judge Roy Beam who loved Texas, honored the law and it’s responsibilities, not like big mouth democrats who are only interested in self indulgement of communism/socialism. Those who fled Texas never would never be the type to stand and fight like the hero’s of the Alamo. The hypocrite democrats want open borders in Texas, yet closed borders for Cubans, they won’t vote for communism, like the illegals, coming in from our southern border right. Time for change 2022 clear the house and senate of all democrats and get our Country back.
