(Before It's News)

Marco Rubio has been a vocal critic of Fidel Castro and President Obama’s lukewarm reaction to his death. Tonight at approximately 6:15 pm, Rubio is taking his case to the Senate Floor. It’s been announced that the Senator from Florida will be speaking on the “true legacy” of Fidel Castro.

When Fidel Castro died on Saturday, Rubio released the following statement:

“Fidel Castro seized power promising to bring freedom and prosperity to Cuba, but his communist regime turned it into an impoverished island prison. Over six decades, millions of Cubans were forced to flee their own country, and those accused of opposing the regime were routinely jailed and even killed.

“Sadly, Fidel Castro’s death does not mean freedom for the Cuban people or justice for the democratic activists, religious leaders, and political opponents he and his brother have jailed and persecuted. The dictator has died, but the dictatorship has not. And one thing is clear, history will not absolve Fidel Castro; it will remember him as an evil, murderous dictator who inflicted misery and suffering on his own people.

“The future of Cuba ultimately remains in the hands of the Cuban people, and now more than ever Congress and the new administration must stand with them against their brutal rulers and support their struggle for freedom and basic human rights.”

Rubio has not been even remotely timid with his words about the failed dictator, and for those who enjoy a rousing speech, it’s can’t miss. No confirmation from CSPAN of coverage, but that is most likely place to find it.
