    They need to start by smashing Fidel Castro and Che Guevara statues, and start painting over the walls on them!

    Food shortages, but Biden said they were protesting over the pandemic. I figure they were upset because they didn't have enough of the experimental vaccines, so the media can further shame those of us Americans who have so much of it available and still refuse. Hmm, well why aren't they are protesting climate change? They COULDN'T be protesting socialism right, the media didn't say they were protesting socialism because SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM is wonderful.
