The Sick Fidel Castro Apologists Are the Neo-Nazis of the Left
Just a week ago, a white nationalist named Richard Spencer gave a speech at an Alt-Right conference, at one point exclaiming “Hail Trump!” Men across the room at the ~100-person event made Nazi salutes.
Leftists kicked and screamed, saying this was indicative of the elevation of neo-Nazis and other racists in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidency.
But after the death of Cuba’s long-standing brutal dictator Fidel Castro two days ago, they proved without a doubt that the real danger isn’t from the racist outcasts and minority on the Right. It’s from the massive number and mainstream Castro lovers on the Left.
Castro, who ruled Cuba for 30 years (yay, democracy!) oppressed his people and caused millions to flee to the United States.
He forced homosexuals and conscientious objectors into labor camps as a form of punishment.
He murdered political dissidents and supported extra-judicial assassinations.
He impoverished the nation, causing visitors to call it a “trip back in time.”
The Cuba Archive Project has confirmed the deaths of almost 10,000 victims of the Castro regime, but estimates the actual number to be closer to 100,000.
Yet in response to a terrible authoritarian’s death, we have Obama responding with this:
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.
Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people.
And Justin Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister, saying this:
It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President.
Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.
While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”.
I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.
On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.
Castro apologists are the neo-Nazis of the Left. But unlike neo-Nazis, Castro apologists are mainstream and rampant, like a malignant tumor that has spread to the entire body.
