1. Oh fck that shit!

How about we blame the racists and the dictator lovers instead of slamming people protesting for positive change?

What a BS OP. How about blaming "Democrats are socialist commies" that have been flooding the Cuban radio networks in Miami? They are voting against there best interests.

16. I'm not saying a sign cost us Florida,

I just can't stand people holding Che up on a pedestal. It's the same level of ignorance as a Trump lover.

17. Oh, but 1 Che sign

means all protestors are not protesting for positive change.

18. No. If you support Che Guevara that is not positive. Period.

19. 1 sign. Period.

Don't damn an entire movement based on one sign.

22. I didn't damn a movement and neither did the OP.

You're blind if you dismiss the possibility it had an impact. Let me make it simple. Cuban Americans hate Che Guevara. BLM protester thinks Che is great and holds a Che sign. Cuban American(s) see BLM protestor hold a Che sign and connects BLM with Che (whom they hate). I understand that BLM doesn't support Che (or at least I hope that's true), but not everyone gets that. Perception has an impact. That is human nature

We can't turn on each other. We need to stick together.

7. Don't even go there

We are not going to play one race against another. BLM is a legitimate movement, fighting for the rights of black people. DU is depressing tonight.

regardless. Not much we could do about it.

21. That is actually a shift of about 28 points.

Which is pretty incredible.

But I think we have enough going for us in other states to win the election.

We will have to rebuild among Cuban-Americans in 2024. In the meantime, let's not blame protesters against injustice for any challenges we have faced.

25. No, its a shift of 14 points from voting 45% R in 2016 to 59% R in 2020.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/11/03/us/elections/forecast-president.html

I don't blame protesters, but obstructing travel, rioting, looting, destroying vehicles and burning buildings is not the way to win hearts and minds of the people.

26. Let me explain what I mean.

If HRC beat Trump 55/45 then that is a 10 point win for the Democrats. If Trump beats Biden 59/41 then that is an 18 point win for the Republicans. In other words we went from winning by 10 to losing by 18, so that is a 28 point shift.

Obviously those numbers are not exact, because there are 3rd party voters, and so the figures should not add up to 100 percent. That is why I said "about" 28 points.

11. FL Dems have a zillion excuses for

the time, money, blood sweat and tears they have burned through, with nothing to show for it.

How about this? Give them less than 25% of the money next time round, and see if they can do worse.

23. What horseshit. If no one protested, there were no BLM if we offered to pay cops double Cubans would

still have voted for Trump.
