'He is no socialist': Well-known Cuban-American writer defends Biden in new political ad

Source: Miami Herald

MIAMI — A well-known Cuban exile journalist and writer is the star of a new Spanish-language political ad refuting accusations that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is a socialist.

The award-winning Cuban-born newspaper columnist, Carlos Alberto Montaner, appears in the radio and television ad, financed by former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, that will begin airing Tuesday on several Spanish-language stations in South Florida.

“Sometimes I vote with the Republicans and sometimes with the Democrats. I have dedicated my life and I have written several books against socialists and communists. But in this election, I want to say emphatically that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are neither socialists nor communists,” says Montaner looking at the camera. “I have been in exile for many years, and I know the friends of freedom perfectly. They are.”

Montaner, 77, a former political detainee in Cuba, has received multiple journalism awards, worked as a university professor and been a columnist for various Latin American and United States media outlets, including el Nuevo Herald. The ad’s creators hope that his career and prestige will help to promote the message beyond the Cuban-American community.

3. Carlos Alberto Montaner's name has carried a lot of weight among South American conservatives

for a long time, not to mention his impact in South Florida.

The more conscious conservatives among them just may be tempted to think about what he has said much more carefully, although many of them are still simple-mindedly attached to their hard right fringe ideology. They all are aware he has made it his life's work to continue fighting the Cuban revolution.

It was good the man realized it's high time to support the honorable man for the U.S. Presidency, and decided to publicly stand up for him.
