I cannot believe the reaction I’m seeing to the death of Fidel Castro.
Wait. Yes, I can. These are progressives we’re talking about.
According to this, the Black Lives Matter movement is in deep mourning over Castro’s death. They released a statement about it and everything, saying in part, “Although no leader is without their flaws, we must push back against the rhetoric of the right and come to the defense of El Comandante.”
No leader is without their flaws? Are they for real?!?
Yes. Yes, they are. In fact, BLM says they want to “take lessons” from Castro as they “aspire to build a world rooted in a vision of freedom and the peace that only comes with justice.”
Yeah – because isn’t “peace” the very first thing you think of when you think of BLM? So peaceful.
Their article also said, “As Fidel ascends to the realm of the ancestors, we summon his guidance, strength, and power as we recommit ourselves to the struggle for universal freedom. Fidel Vive!”
I can’t with these morons. But like any good liberal, this is what they do. They revere dictators and tyrants and murderers. They look to “revolutionaries” like Bernie Sanders to welcome a new age of socialism, without paying attention to the pesky historic details that accompany it. I mean, who cares that Castro executed thousands of people or encouraged the Soviets to start a nuclear war. Who cares that Castro’s people were forbidden from having free thought, free speech, or free will? Who cares that anyone who opposed him was sent to re-education camps? Who cares that he had 20 palaces while his country was completely impoverished?
The bottom line is that Castro hated America. And so leftists adore him, because they have that in common. “But free school and awesome hospitals!” liberals will say. I mean, just look at the love-fest Michael Moore gave Cuba in that stupid documentary of his a few years back. It’s nauseating. These idiots simply cannot understand that the cost of those free schools and fancy hospitals was executions, labor camps, “re-education,” gross human rights violations, and a total loss of freedom.
But hey – America sucks so Vive Castro! And where’s my trendy Che shirt?
