Cuban-Americans in Congress respond to Capitol siege on Twitter

From our Bureau of For-The-Record-Tweets

Marco Rubio R FL
Mr. President @realDonaldTrump : the men & women of law enforcement are under assault. It is crucial you help restore order by sending resources to assist the police and ask those doing this to stand down.
Violence is always unacceptable. Even when passions run high.

Ted Cruz R TX
Violence is always unacceptable. Even when passions run high. Anyone engaged in violence—especially against law enforcement—should be fully prosecuted. God bless the Capitol Police and the honorable men & women of law enforcement who show great courage keeping all of us safe.

Bob Menendez D NJ
Today, I shed a tear for our country, which for centuries has inspired the world through its commitment to democracy and the rule of law. From Moscow to Beijing and beyond, autocrats are likely smiling as they witness America in disarray, at war with itself, and no longer a credible messenger for the democratic values that have always defined our great Republic. This was not an act of patriotism, but an act of sedition.

Mario Diaz-Balart R FL
The U.S. Capitol is the center and sacred symbol of democracy. Today’s violent acts are the most unacceptable aggression against the principles and values that are the foundation of our nation.

Nicole Malliotakis R NY
My staff and I are safe and have been brought to a secure location by the Capitol Police. Everyone who is responsible for this violence and lawlessness must stop. This is absolutely unnacceptable and un-American.

Maria Elvira Salazar R FL
While I am in Miami recovering from COVID-19, I’m deeply troubled by what is happening in Washington. I am praying for the safety of my colleagues & our law enforcement. There is absolutely no place for violence and rioting in the U.S. Capitol!

Albio Sires D NJ
The President wanted this. He is a disgrace.

Alex Mooney R WV
I’m safe. We’ve been equipped with escape hoods and we’re being moved through the Capitol.

  1. “The President wanted this.” Really? Trump wanted something that would look terrible and would inevitably be blamed on him like ANYTHING negative, regardless of how he felt or what he actually wanted or did? Who is this person and where does he get his information? Oh, sorry, he’s a Dem, and from that ethical paragon that is NJ, to boot. Never mind. Talk about a cheap shot.

    And did this guy ever call Obama disgraceful, as he most surely was on multiple occasions? Would he ever call Biden that, no matter what the corrupt and senile old hack does? Isn’t it already disgraceful on its face for any Cuban to be actively Dem? Sheesh.

  2. “Violence is always unacceptable” and “violent acts are the most unacceptable aggression against the principles and values that are the foundation of our nation.”

    Yet, they all celebrate the 4th of July and applaud every single violent revolt that led to it. It is somewhat interesting how that works, does it not?

    Granted, the founding fathers weren’t the type who cared about the law and would have certainly been executed, in the name of the law, had they failed.

    One can also be certain that such men would have not been too fond of the “democratic values” of any of these hacks who have denied what was – and will continue to be – a blatantly corrupt and rigged electoral process.

    Yet, for thesis sanctimonious and useless cowards, this is not about logic or principals, this is about image, position, and public consumption – which is what they live for. At this point only the military can clean house.

    But, you know, “our” freedom is rather defended in the Middle East, fighting wars for the great parasite under false pretexts. They do have “proof” for such things… No problem with violence there, not at all, provided you are conducting murder on behalf of government officials who are above the law.

    Vamos Bien (and I am not talking about Cuba)

  3. I agree 100% with Gallardo. From my point-of-view, the issue is the stolen elections and how this has undermined our democracy. In fact, this election has made a sham of our constitution. What law were these protestors undermining? Certainly not the law of representation, because that was thrown down the toilet. Each and everyone of us who voted for Trump have been devalued, disrespected and laughed at. The only violence is that of the police who killed an unarmed woman, a protester. Where are the people who a few months ago cried over the death of a thug in Minneapolis?

    Sorry, those protesors were justified, just like protestors in Cuba are justified even though they too are viewed as outlaws. When something as sacred as an election is stolen and our democracy is violated, extreme measures are called for.

    • I totally agree.

      Not only were the protestors justified, the unjustified murders came from trigger-happy capital police inside the Capital (there is graphic video of it).

      There are eyewitness accounts and video footage proving the presence of ANTIFA posing as Trump supporters for the sake of a false-flag operation – to accuse Trump’s people (and Trump himself) of the violence. Rudy Giuliani showed it, not the _ews media, of course.

      There is footage of the very police opening barricades and letting people in (these are actions the result of orders).

      That said, not only are the actions of the left what truly provoked this, not Trump, the left had a direct hand in it.

      These are the typical tactics of communists. We, of all people, know them too well and we also know they require violence despite how unpleasant it may be, for peace under communism is a peace desired by no descent human being.

      “We can have peace this second, if we surrender.” – Ronald Reagan
