The Left is evil, period. Everything leftism touches is ruined and destroyed. Cuba, scarred by Marxism, or maybe Castroism is a better term, is a great example of how destitute of morality, decency, and sanity Marxism is. The Left talks glowingly of democracy, free elections, and of course justice. “Power to the people” is a common chant regurgitated by Leftists. But, everything the Left does takes power from the people, preferring to place all power in the State. And, more power placed in the State tramples individual liberty, self-reliance, and the human spirit itself. As I said, Marxism, and all its bastard spawn ideologies, Chavezism, Catsroism, Maoism, Stalinism, Leninism, Leftism, etc destroy everything good and noble in the world.
The death of Fidel Castro has laid bare exactly how much contempt the Left has for individual liberty. Leftism, of course is based on Collectivism, and nothing is more disdainful to the Left than Individualism. The Left does not believe in natural rights, it believes in an all-powerful state that dictates what rights, if any, individuals shall possess. Again, consider some of the comments about Castro and his life the Left has issued
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau praised Castro as a remarkable leader
“While a controversial figure, both Mr Castro’s supporters and detractors recognised his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for ‘el Comandante’,” Mr Trudeau said in the statement.
He “loved” the Cuban people? He loved them so much he let them starve while he became rich
“While his people suffered, Fidel Castro lived in comfort — keeping everything, including his eight children, his many mistresses, even his wife, a secret,” wrote Juan Reinaldo Sanchez, Castro’s longtime bodyguard.
Sanchez’s book, “The Double Life of Fidel Castro: My 17 Years as Personal Bodyguard to El Líder Maximo,” describes his former boss’ hidden life of political ruthlessness, mistresses and greed.
Castro, who died Friday night at 90, made a personal fortune offering safe haven to drug traffickers, bedded a bevy of women over the decades, and once threatened his own brother, Raul, with execution when the brother lapsed into alcoholism in the ’90s, Sanchez’s book reveals.
He loved them?
But while he made good on some of his promises to educate and care for his people — building free schools and hospitals with the help of his Soviet sponsors — Castro’s legacy was also one of repression and hypocrisy.
Deep poverty persisted — teen prostitution, crumbling houses, food rations. Political opponents were executed by the thousands by firing squad, or sentenced to decades of hard labor.
Dear Moral Idiots of the Left, that is NOT love. that is evil.
Jill Stein tweeted this nonsensical babble
The Mustachioed Douchebag himself tweeted this
So, he is comparing Reagan, Nixon, Trump, and Elvis to Castro? Tell me Geraldo, did those men do these types of things?
He also was a ruthless dictator, the Maximum Leader who reneged on his promise of free elections, executed thousands of opponents, imprisoned tens of thousands, installed a Communist regime and made his island a pawn in the Cold War. His alliance with the Soviet Union brought the world to the brink of nuclear war in 1962.
He created a repressive state that rigidly controlled the arts, the press, the airwaves. An efficient secret police force was aided by neighborhood spies and pro-government mobs that attacked those who dared to call for democratic change. Cultural enemies were vulnerable, too; well into the 1970s, Castro was imprisoning gays and long-haired young people in work camps.
Nuance Geraldo? Many other Leftists, and moral idiots, but I repeat myself have climbed aboard the glorification of Castro bandwagon. Je$$e Jack$on of course praised Fidel of course
Jimmy Carter, naturally being both a moral and actual idiot was crestfallen
This man was a monster, yet the “tolerant” Left praises his atrocities as if they were good things. The Left excuses the trampling of human rights. This might be puzzling to some, but frankly, this is simply the real face behind the mask the Left wears. The Left praises Castro not in spite of his evil deeds, but rather because of them!
