A Cuban American Perspective On Lockdown Violations

I know you won't be exactly blow away by this, and may not even consider it news, but ...

Poll: Democrats Much More Likely Than Republicans to Snitch on Neighbors for 'Lockdown' Violations

Nevertheless it's worth reading, as further documentation of our ongoing Culture Wars. Sample:

“Democrats are far more likely than Republicans to say they’d report neighbors for holding a social gathering in violation of coronavirus stay-at-home orders, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. 
“There is a huge partisan difference,” Rasmussen said. “By a 44% to 31% margin, a plurality of Democrats would turn in their neighbors. By a 60% to 25% margin, Republicans would not." 
Any more questions about why Cuban-Americans register majority Republican, and why many of us have an instinctive—almost visceral—revulsion to many Democrat policies? 
Though not mentioned, even by the conservative media, with regard to this issue, Castroite Cuba is the historic prototype of a snitch society.
Maybe it was a coincidence that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio—a Democrat who honeymooned in Cuba and quoted Che Guevara during his micro-campaign--seemed particularly fond of installing neighborhood snitch/rat groups in his realm.

  1. My wife was born in Havana. She isn't a snitch. And I DO kinda like her. :-)
