A Cuban-American businessman who fled Fidel Castros communist revolution gave a heart-wrenching speech at Monday nights Republican National Convention, imploring Americans to reject the rise of radical socialism and fight to preserve American liberty.
My family has fled totalitarianism and communism more than once. First my dad from Spain, then from Cuba, Alvarez said during his powerful comments, Western Journal reports.
But my family is done running away. By the grace of God, I live the American dream, he added. Im speaking to you today because my family is done abandoning what we rightfully earned. There is no place to hide. Im speaking to you today because President Trump may not always be politically correct he is in fact a successful businessman, not your average career politician, he continued.
Our president is just another family man a friend, but most important, our elected commander in chief who puts America first.
Meanwhile, Alvarez contended, former Vice President Joe Biden, who was formally named the Democrat Partys presidential nominee during the partys own national convention last week, is mostly concerned about power.
This is typically the case with all far-leftists, and Alvarez says that hes seen it all before.
I am here to tell you: We cannot let them take over our country. I heard the promises of Fidel Castro, and I can never forget all those who grew up around me, who look like me, who suffered and starved and died because they believed those empty promises, they swallowed the communist poison pill, he said, in comments that fly in the face of the glossy promises of the Democrats hip socialists who seem to have pushed the party fully into this dangerous ideological camp.
