From Wikipedia (bold mine):

On July 25, 1898, during the Spanish–American War, the U.S. invaded Puerto Rico with a landing at Guánica. As an outcome of the war, Spain ceded Puerto Rico, along with the Philippines and Guam, then under Spanish sovereignty, to the U.S. under the Treaty of Paris, which went into effect on April 11, 1899.[4] Spain relinquished sovereignty over Cuba, but did not cede it to the U.S.[72]

Which proves 3 things:

1) A socialist knows more about American history than right wingers

2) Right wingers are too ignorant to spend 60 seconds researching facts

3) Facts have a liberal bias
