Far-left Intelwars Maximo alvarez RNC speech trump

Cuban immigrant delivers passionate RNC speech warning Americans about the far left

American businessman and Cuban immigrant Maximo Alvarez delivered a gripping speech during the Republican National Convention, warning Americans that far left movements rising in the United States remind him of Fidel Castro’s communist regime in Cuba.

What are the details?

“I’m speaking to you today because President [Donald] Trump may not always care about being polite — but all the far left cares about is power,” Alvarez said. “Power for them — not for us.

“I’ve seen movements like this before,” the founder and president of Sunshine Gasoline Distributors recalled. “I’ve seen ideas like this before and I’m 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 looked like me, who could have been me, who suffered and starved and died because they believed those empty promises.”

Alvarez, who escaped to the United States 60 years ago, continued, “Those false promises — spread the wealth, defund the police, trust a socialist state more than your family and community — don’t sound radical to my ears. They sound familiar. When Fidel Castro was asked if he was a communist, he said he was a Roman Catholic — he knew he had to hide the truth.

“I may be Cuban born, but I am 100% American,” Alvarez declared, fighting back tears. “This is the greatest country in the world. If I gave away everything I have today, it would not equal 1% of what I was given when I came to this great country: The gift of Freedom.”

Alvarez went viral last month for delivering a show-stopping talk during a business roundtable discussion that included President Donald Trump.

The businessman said at the time about life under Castro’s rise, “I remember all the promises that we hear today about free education and free health care and free land. My God, no freedom. But he never said that until after he was in power, got rid of all the police, got rid of all the military. … And he destroyed each and every one of them who helped him.”

Remembering what his father said of America, Alvarez told the audience, “He saw me graduate from college, and that was the biggest prize he ever had. And he said, ‘Don’t lose this place because you’re never going to be as lucky as me. Because if you lose this place, you have no place to go.'”

Cuba communism Intelwars Marxism Maximo alvarez Socialism Warning

‘If they have to kill you, they will—they have’: Cuban immigrant from viral video doubles down on dire warning

A video of Maximo Alvarez giving a powerful speech during a roundtable discussion with President Donald Trump last week is blowing up the internet. In his speech, Maximo, a Cuban immigrant who escaped Fidel Castro’s communist regime as a teen, issued a dire warning against the rise in Marxism we’re now seeing in America.

On the radio program Friday, Maximo joined Glenn Beck to double down on his warning for Americans. He briefly shared his family’s history, explaining how his family first fled to Cuba from Spain to escape communism, only to see Cuba fall under communist rule with Fidel Castro.

“I know, firsthand, how difficult and how painful it was for families who were being destroyed for no reason. Families who had nothing to do with politics. Families who had nothing to do with government. It was just hard-working families. So I grew up in that environment, and then sure enough, by the time I was 11 years old, the same thing happened in Cuba,” Maximo said. “My story is just one of many, many millions of people, running away from communism, looking for the land of the free. And it’s amazing, it’s amazing that we [in America] don’t appreciate that.”

Maximo said that everything that is currently happening in America, from the cancel culture and cultural revolution to the media bombardment, is “the same old story” of how communism overthrows countries.

“This is the same old story. It doesn’t change. We need to explain to people that the communist philosophy is based on the fact that the ends justify the means. The ends justify the means,” he emphasized. “They will do whatever is necessary to accomplish their objective. If they have to tell you they’re Catholics, or they have to tell you they belong to certain religions, they will. If they have to kill you, they will — they have. Just look at exactly what happened in Cuba.”

He went on to explain how the fear Americans are currently being fed is exactly what Cuban Marxists used to destroy capitalism and freedom.

“One person can create enough fear, that it will destroy the economy. That means, for example, you cannot go to a theater. You cannot go to a restaurant … and it gets so far out of hand that people are afraid to go out,” Maximo said. “And then what happens to our economy? Capitalism and fear are not synonyms. You cannot be a capitalistic economy, with fear. And that’s why it’s called terrorism.

“Look what is happening today, with our own governors, mayors. This is amazing,” he added. “All they do is use people to create dissension. To create hatred. That’s what they do. They are experts at class warfare.”

America communism CUBA Donald Trump Fidel Castro Intelwars Maximo alvarez

Cuban immigrant has dire warning for Americans, says ‘communists’ are trying to take over US

During the event, Alvarez explained that “communists” are now trying to force Americans to swallow the same “pill” that Fidel Castro tricked Cuban into swallowing during the Cuban Revolution.

“What is happening in our backyard today, I experienced as an 11-year-old. I remember vividly all the promises that a guy named Castro gave, and how 99% of the people swallowed the pill,” Alvarez said.

According to Alvarez, Castro was selling the same bill of free goods to Cubans that far-left politicians are attempting to sell Americans today.

“I remember all the promises that we hear today about free education and free health care and free land,” Alvarez said.

“My God, no freedom,” he continued. “But he never said that until after he was in power, got rid of all the police, got rid of all the military — been there for the last 60 years and counting. And he destroyed each and every one who helped him.”

Later in his speech, Alvarez pleaded with young Americans to not become the same “useful idiots” that Castro turned the Cuban people into, before sharing sage advice from his father.

“He saw me graduate from college, and that was the biggest prize he ever had. And he said, ‘Don’t lose this place because you’re never going to be as lucky as me. Because if you lose this place, you have no place to go,'” Alvarez explained.

Alvarez is founder and president of Sunshine Gasoline Distributors, which operates in South Florida.
