Sen. Ted Cruz hopes Fidel and Raul Castro will soon follow Hugo Chavez

At the U.S. Cuba Democracy PAC luncheon yesterday, Ted Cruz, the Cuban American senator from Texas, gave a great speech about how lucky many of us were to grow up in freedom thanks to the courage and sacrifice of our Cuban parents. Val and I had the privilege to be there for his speech and luckily, our good friend Javier Manjares from The Shark Tank was there as well with his video camera.

The Shark Tank

Senator Ted Cruz, who is of Cuban descent, attended the annual Cuba-Democracy PAC luncheon in Miami along with Senator Marco Rubio and gave one of the most profound smack-downs of  Fidel Castro’s reign-of-terror that I have ever heard.

Cruz said that, “hopefully, in the not too distant future, Fidel Castro and Raul Castro will join Hugo Chavez, and all three will face the ultimate judgment.” Cruz later referred to Fidel Castro and Che Guevara as “murderous thugs” of the past and the present day.

Cruz  then quoted former President Ronald Reagan’s famous “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” statement in front of the Brandenburg gate, in addition to Reagan referring to the Soviet Union as the “Evil Empire.”
