Just in case you weren’t already aware of what of how despicable these people are…

from Washington Examiner:

House Democrats have wrapped up a three-day trip to Cuba, where they met with Cuban officials and predicted “strong bipartisan support” to fully lift the decades-old trade embargo and pledged not to “point fingers” at the country for its faults, including human rights abuses.

Human rights issues were not the main emphasis of the meeting, despite the country’s record of abusive treatment of its citizens.

Instead, it was about strengthening the connection between the United States and Cuba, which Democrats said would ultimately lead to a more democratic society.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., led the delegation, which met in Havana with a number of Cuban officials, including the First Vice President of Cuba Miguel Díaz-Canel.

“We engaged in a constructive dialogue about the future of our two countries and discussed how we could work together on agriculture, biotechnology and small business to our mutual benefit,” Pelosi said. “All of the participants in the meeting agreed that a critical step towards normalization is the establishment of formal diplomatic relations.”
Pelosi was accompanied by eight House Democrats, including Rep. Jim McGovern, of Massachusetts, who is co-chairman of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission.

They will be just as quick to turn a blind eye on your human rights if it means more power for them.
