There IS, I suspect, a very good reason that the ilk of Obama, so many left wing nut-job celebrities and the always light years to the left of liberal mainstream media has been shedding crocodile tears over the death of Fidel Castro.
CNN called the now dead dictator “magnanimous” and “grandfatherly.”
Absolute idiot, Colin Kaepernick stated that he agreed with Castro’s investing in Cuba’s education system, universal healthcare and wore a Castro shirt to a press conference just days before Castro died.
Steven Spielberg once said, “The best seven hours I ever spent was actually with Fidel Castro.”
In the past, Jack Nicholson called Castro a “genius” and Cuba under Castro, “a paradise.”
Chevy Chase said that Cuba is proof that, “sometimes socialism works.”
Over this past weekend, Barack Hussein Obama stated…
“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.”
And the Black Lives Matter organization’s leadership thugs issued a statement saying that they must, “come to the defense of El Comandante” and thanking him for safeguarding Assata Shakur, who’s on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list.
So, given all the facts, and the stark reality of Castro’s murderous reign as Cuba’s dictator, why would these left wing-nuts be praising the dead bastard?
It’s hero worship.
From the celebrated left and the liberal power elite, we have those who pine for the day when the government is mandated by a single entity without the constraints of the Constitution and when those who dare to disagree are imprisoned…or worse.
From those liberals…we see the deep yearning for a day when America is transformed forever from a government of, by and for the people…into a government where socialism gives way to pure communism.
In Fidel Castro…such people had a hero. In Castro, they had someone who called freedom “tyranny” and who forced his people to rely solely on the government for their needs.
Regarding Cuba…liberals wallow about in glee over the notion that Castro was able to do what they can only dream of…he did away with capitalism and made everyone but the ruling elite equally poor.
Cuba is the liberal standard of utopia, and Castro…their hero.
This is why, for the past 50 years, liberals in this country have taken over our system of education…to dumb down American youth to the point they no longer understand the concept of freedom from oppression…so that as they grow older, not only will they not know what they have given up, but so that they will happily vote for the “fundamental transformation” of America.
Castro solved that.
Universal healthcare where only the government decides what care you are entitled to?
Castro solved that.
Censorship to the point that the only acceptable “news” is the propaganda delivered by the government?
Castro solved that too.
This is also why today, we see liberals who are ashamed of the freedoms and liberties of the United States demonizing the American flag and removing it from college campuses.
This is why, for the past several decades, we see liberals demonizing any public depictions of Christianity…manger scenes in the park…Christmas carols in the mall…”Under God” in our Pledge of Allegiance.
Communism dictates that religion is the opiate of, or for the masses and to control the people, religion must be removed. To remove religion, and the hope that religion offers…communism must first make religion so distasteful to the masses that they will willingly toss it to the curb.
Castro’s Communist Party closed churches, nationalized properties owned by religious organizations and forced the faithful underground. Over the decades, Castro’s dictatorship closed more than 400 Catholic schools.
In fact, it wasn’t until 2014 that the Castro dictatorship allowed construction of the first new church since the 1959 revolution.
And what of education under Fidel Castro?
Oh, Castro built schools…lots of them…and provided a free education through college for his people…but just as communist countries everywhere have done…the education system under Castro in Cuba was a propaganda arm of the government meant to indoctrinate students only in the ways of communism and against any notion of freedom and liberty.
Does any of this sound familiar?
It should and why wouldn’t it? These are exactly the things being done by liberals today and exactly the things they’ve tried to do for decades.
Liberals in this country, well aware that a hostile takeover, such as the one Castro engineered in 1959, and all the executions that followed it, were out of the question here…as per our right to keep and bear arms giving us the ability to fight back if necessary…but nonetheless, through more covert actions, over a much longer period of time…the desired outcome is the same.
Let me make this point clear…the reason the liberal power elite in our country want to do away with the 2nd Amendment is because without it, their path toward communism is much more clear, and they will use the criminal elements of our society, the only members OF our society who will be left with guns under their agenda, as tools.
Call it a non-violent coup of sorts.
Don’t think so?
Then explain why today’s liberals use each and every well publicized by their mainstream media event of gun related violence to demand more and more gun control? Why is it, that today’s liberal power elite want gun registrations so badly? So that they will know where every law abiding citizen with a gun lives. Naturally, they don’t give a damn about where the criminals with guns are…they know that only the law abiding will comply and those bent on using guns to commit crimes will force the law abiding to demand the government do something. At least, that’s the agenda plan.
Today’s garden variety liberals on the street are more than happy to go along with the program, which means they’re also more than happy to continue to vote for the very party that is happy to ply them with bribes…with freebies. What the garden variety liberals are too dumbed down to realize, thanks to their government controlled education, is that once the liberal power elite have everything they want from upper class…they will simply start taking what those down the ladder have until Americans, like today’s Cubans, are all equally poor.
Today’s American garden variety liberals are nothing but tools and funny thing about tools…they’re only useful until the job is finished.
Truth doesn’t matter to liberals. Truth didn’t matter to Castro either. Facts don’t matter to liberals. Facts didn’t matter to Castro either. All liberals are interested in are promises. Castro, leading up to his 1959 revolution, made all the promises his people wanted to hear. To liberals, capitalism is evil. Capitalism was evil to Castro. The upper class is evil to liberals. Castro saw the upper class as evil.
Are you starting to get the drift here?
You should, because before he went full-on communist…Fidel Castro was, in fact, a liberal.
That is absolutely correct…Fidel Castro started out in politics as a liberal and so too did Barack Hussein Obama, but that’s not where the strange yet not at all surprising similarities end.
Castro went to the School of Law of the University of Havana.
Obama went to law school at Columbia and Harvard.
Castro surrounded himself with radicals and was fond of the Marxist ideology and Leninism.
Obama said in his book, ‘Dreams of My Father,” “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structured feminists and punk-rock performance poets.”
Further… John C. Drew, Ph.D., a former Marxist-Leninist himself, who knew Barack Obama at Occidental College, has said he spent an evening with Obama and a group of Marxist-Leninist friends at a restaurant where they discussed politics and Communist revolution. According to Drew… “He [Obama] was arguing a straightforward Marxist-Leninist class-struggle point of view, which anticipated that there would be a revolution of the working class, led by revolutionaries, who would overthrow the capitalist system and institute a new socialist government that would redistribute the wealth.”
Castro began to dabble in politics.
Obama began to dabble in politics.
Castro organized gangs sought to advance a mixture of romantic goals, political aims, and personal careers.
Obama became a community organizer, agitating crowds of like thinkers with romanticized political goals, and personal careers.
Castro was eventually selected as the Cuban People’s Party candidate for a seat in the House of Representatives from a Havana district in the elections scheduled for June 1952.
Obama became an Illinois state representative and then, a member of the U.S. Senate.
Castro, in 1959, came to power with the support of most Cuban city dwellers on the basis of his promises to restore the 1940 constitution, create an honest administration, reinstate full civil and political liberties, and undertake moderate reforms.
In 2008, Obama came to power with the support of city dwellers, based on promises he made to create the most transparent administration in history, and on the promise of hope and change.
Castro fundamentally transformed Cuba into a communist country.
Obama promised to “fundamentally transform America.”
The comparison between Obama and Castro is clearly more than mere coincidence, as Obama’s mentor was, after all, Frank Marshall Davis…a confirmed communist. Obviously, Obama wanted to become the Fidel Castro of the United States and sought to do so using subterfuge rather than outright murder to accomplish his goal.
So…is it any wonder that leaders around the world, from Obama, to Canada’s Justin Trudeau, to Pope Francis…those who lean so hard to the left that they are indeed socialists, or worse…along with the liberal elite such as a myriad of celebrities who enjoy seeing themselves as more enlightened than just about anyone else (because they play make-believe for e living perhaps?) have spent the better part of the past week singing the praises and lauding the accomplishments of the now dead communist murderer…Fidel Castro?
In a month when Hillary Clinton was disallowed Obama’s 3rd term…their hero is dead.
Obama’s hero is dead.
And the fundamental transformation of America, into a 3rd world hell-hole of socialism giving way to communism…is dead.
All that is left now in Cuba, is a fading shadow of Fidel…his brother Raul… who is neither mighty, nor young, and without a socialist in the White House come January 20th to prop him up.
There are however, still open ended questions.
What do the people of Cuba want? More communism, which has left them and their country in ruins, or a quantum shift in ideology?
What will Putin do now that Fidel is gone and Raul is but a shadow of a now dead era? Will Putin back away, now that Obama is out of power and Cuba is no longer a tool he can use to irritate Obama, or will Putin remain a supplier of military weapons and cash to a failing dictatorship?
And what will Trump do? Will he work to reestablish sanctions thus forcing the Cuban people to take control or will he simply maintain a wary eye on the communist nation with Obama’s newly developed normalization of diplomatic ties there?
One thing is clear…Raul Castro will try to hold on as long as possible but he really isn’t in control of his own destiny…nor has he ever been…as he was nothing more than his bother’s puppet.
While only time will provide answers to these questions…at least you now know why the ilk of Obama, the liberal/socialist power elite and more communist than socialist celebrities along with the mainstream, liberal/socialist propaganda media are all handing out glowing praise for a dead, communist bastard.
Hero worship…nothing but hero worship.
