I can’t even explain what I see in the Left except to say that they are acting like spoiled, little 16-year-olds mad at their parents for not letting them borrow the car and now they want to punish you because they missed the big dance!
Fidel is dead! Thank God! It’s sad that he didn’t get a chance to know the love of God while he was alive, but that was his choice. The Left is almost in as much mourning for Fidel as it was for JFK and MLK. The same Left loons that called Trump a dangerous man, a bigot, a homophobe, a xenophobe, and a phobea-a-phobe is calling Fidel Castro a revolutionary, a freedom fighter, and someone who will be revered for bringing education and social services to the Cuban people. ABC’s Jim Avila went on to say Castro was the George Washington of Cuba? Are these people serious?
The Left NEVER called out Mr. Clinton for his (alleged) sexual assaults and rapes on women. He is revered by the Left. Mrs. Clinton never called him out for that either, and actually called his victims bimbos, sluts, whores and gold diggers! The Left loves her and sees her as a goddess.
Trump talks about what he would like to do to some women and he is a woman hater, unfit for public office! He calls out people on the Left, black, Hispanic, white, and others for what they actually DO, but he is a bigot, racist who hates women and babies. The Left simply hates him! Am I the only one confused by this?
And now, they’re gushing over a man who has had THOUSANDS of people killed simply for not agreeing with him. He has killed, by firing squad, over 3500 people because they disagreed with him. He also executed people for fleeing Cuba by raft.
In 1994, Castro ordered a tug boat full of women and children to be sunk by the Cuban “navy.” Why? Because they left his murderous country!
Starting in 1996 the United States agreed to accept up 25 thousand Cuban refugees per year IF the Cuban government would stop the flow of “rafters” coming in from Cuba. It was dangerous and there were way too many coming over. Which is so weird… you’d think if the education and medical systems were so great they would want to stay!
Cuban pilots living in Miami flew over seas from Cuba to Miami dropping food, water, and supplies for them. On one mission Fidel (admittedly) order the planes shot down. Wasn’t Fidel a great humanitarian?
Fidel created jobs and security for over 30,000 Cubans by establishing what he called “Military Units in Aid of Production” or as we call them… Labor Camps! Castro decided that in order to maintain the stability of his rule he would have to control the “undesirables.” And since he needed laborers, he would simply convict them and work them to death!
You guys on the Left never cease to amaze me with your hypocrisy, dual standards, and out-and-out ignorance. Let’s bask in some of the most ignorant comments about Fidel Castro by the elitists on the Left.
Chris Mathews recalled Castro as “a romantic figure” and “a folk hero to most of us” when he initially took power.
Andrea Mitchell said “Castro gave his people better health care and education.” Is she serious ANY healthcare and ANY education would have been better than what they had!
Colin Kaepernick says Fidel was a freedom fighter and fought against oppression. Is he serious? If he got paid for common sense instead of football he’d probably make about 15 cents a year!
And President Obama’s official statement:
“At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people. We know that this moment fills Cubans – in Cuba and in the United States – with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.”
IS HE SERIOUS? This is proof that Mr. Obama is so out of touch with reality.
Former President Jimmy Carter praised the dictator for the love of his country (didn’t Trump get beat up for praising Putin for the love of his country?) and went on to say, “We recall fondly our visits with him in Cuba.” REALLY?
Green Party nominee, Dr. Jill Stein tweeted “Fidel Castro was a symbol of the struggle for justice in the shadow of empire. Presente!” She needs some real help! Explain what REAL justice he administered?
Jessie Jackson remarked, “In many ways, after 1959, the oppressed, the world over, joined Castro’s cause of fighting for freedom & liberation. He changed the world.”
People! These Loons are serious. And they want control of our government. This should scare the CRUD out of you!
The Left gets mad because they think Donald Trump won’t hire gays. Yet, Castro imprisoned them, and he is a “revolutionary”? He created labor camps filled with those who didn’t agree with him. He sent out execution squads to hunt and kill those who opposed him. He sank boats of refugees leaving Cuba for America risking their lives for freedom. I’m sorry. How can anyone sing his praises with the atrocities he committed?
Here’s what the truth looks like, and what we need to be teaching the next generation:
President-elect Donald Trump’s official statement:
“Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades,” – “Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights. While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve.”
Senator Ted Cruz remarked, “Fidel Castro’s death cannot bring back his thousands of victims, nor can it bring comfort to their families. Today we remember them and honor the brave souls who fought the lonely fight against the brutal Communist dictatorship he imposed on Cuba.”
Senator Marco Rubio, who’s family fled Cuba, said, “History will remember Fidel Castro as an evil, murderous dictator who inflicted misery & suffering on his own people.”
I’ll stand with them. The Left’s mythical memory and romanticizing of communist-socialist dictators like Fidel Castro who steal, rape, murder, and oppress their people is truly a sickness. I can’t tell you how thankful I am that “they” are not in control.
The Bible says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” And another favorite verse, 2 Timothy 3:1-3:
“Be sure of this. In the last days hard times will come.
People will love themselves. They will love money. They will talk about themselves and be proud. They will say wrong things about people. They will not obey their parents. They will not be thankful. They will not keep anything holy.
They will have no love. They will not agree with anybody. They will tell lies about people. They will have no self-control. They will beat people. They will not love anything that is good.”
Get the picture? No matter what the Left says about Fidel Castro, he was not a glorified freedom fighter to be admired as a role model. He was an evil dictator whose reign has finally ended. Make sure your children and grandchildren know the truth!
America lets get it right!
